With our customers permission we're able to share with you his 02' R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nür build, currently at 62,XXX kilometers and all original - a super clean example.
Simon's goal was to build a purposeful street car capable of hitting the track every now and again with figures up to a responsive and respectable 400 kilowatts whilst retaining an OEM appearance both inside and out. I won't cover the entire build process but I'll add as much as I can.

Starting off with a somewhat blank canvas of a car, this Pearl White V-Spec II Nür already has some high-quality parts fitted at our workshop including the Ikeya Formula arms and Brembo GT Big Brake Kit, not a bad start.
The legendary RB26DETT removed from the body and stripped apart ready for machining and future assembly.
As requested, Damon from Auto Attention to detail Simon's engine bay prior to his motor returning.
The 24U R34 GT-R Engine Block back from Speedworks, Ringwood to suit his Tomei 2.8L Stroker Kit. Acid cleaning, crack testing, boring and coating are only a fraction of the process. Not a cheap exercise.
Cylinder Head also back from Speedworks with a plethora of work completed. There's something about a freshly machined surface that is so appealing to the eye.
Test fitting the HKS cams to ensure all clearances are correct.
I've missed a few steps in between but an update nonetheless. Tomei 2.8L Stroker Kit, Water Pump, Tomei Oil Pump fitted - Standard Turbo Manifolds and Sump dummy fitted, for now.
HKS Cams fitted and intake plenum gasket test fitted.
HKS Cam Gears fitted. As good as the cam gears look the standard Silica Breath cam cover will be covering them.
Garrett GTX2863R Turbos & HPI Dump Pipes fitted and mounted to ensuring no clearance issues and or abnormalities whilst doing so. Everything is going well so far.
Starting to come together nicely, Turbo Manifold Heat Shields were also cleaned and coated, although we can't guarantee it'll stay like that forever. In fact, it most likely wont. Hardlines also fitted.
View from the back for those who are interested, it really does look like a big mess from here. You can see the racks of parts patiently waiting to be fitted to Simon's car in the background.
In the meantime, our go-to fabricator/electrician Scott 3D scanning Simon's engine bay to create custom brackets to hold the various fuelling components.
More parts fitted, it never ends. Sard fuel Rail and Injector Dynamics Injectors fitted, throttle body also fitted with a new Nitto gaskets to suit. We also ported the Throttle Body in house.
ATI Super Damper and ARP Crank Bolt fitted.
Finally starting to look like a motor.
Nismo Intake Plenum installed and engine covers are starting to go on.
Just about completely assembled - At this stage I'm giving you guys as much as I can in regards to the overall build progress.
Giving the block mating surface a thorough clean before fitting the new 9L Extended Sump from Hi-Octane.
It's a two person job fitting these heavy sumps and more importantly seating it properly to ensure no leaks or damage internally and externally.
Remember Scott 3D scanning? This is the result. It's not quite done in this photo but you get the idea, housing the Magnafuel Fuel Regulator, ID750 Fuel Filter and Haltech Flex Fuel Sensor complete with Speedflow fittings. A nice tidy package that is incorporated well once the motor is back in.
It's always exciting watching the motor return back from where it came. You can never have too many guard covers and rags.
View from above, you can see the Top Secret catch can that SL Customs had sprayed matte black for us. Note how the fuelling bracket fits snugly between the strut top and plenum.
Out with the old, in with the new. You can see the Driveshaft Shop Carbon Tailshaft in the back waiting to be fitted also.
Brand new Nismo Intercooler and Nismo Piping Kit installed. We had no issues fitting this unit, as you know Nismo make OEM like fit and finish and is an absolute joy to work with.
A plethora of parts still waiting to be fitted, it's just about done at this stage.
Engine completely assembled and fitted, minus the spark plugs and more.
Also in-house our dyno tuning facility, capable of tuning Power FC, Haltech and so much more. Currently on its run-in tune, 250kw @ 11psi - We recommend 1000km+ in varying conditions (low stress, high stress) before re-tuning to its full potential. This car in particular will be expecting a conservative 400kw +/- on E85 post re-tune, perfect for street and circuit driving.
A perfect GT-R for somebody chasing the less wild.
