  1. hey all, I looking to replace my water pump, timing belt tensenor, and idler pulleys on my 98 r34 skyline gtt. my question have to do with belt options. what do each brand type offer what benefits over others. for example yes a Kevlar belt may stretch less and last longer but will it be nosier then stock, etc? I am looking at hks, tomei, stock nissan etc, what are each brand/type pros and cons ? thanks
  2. I have a 98 er34 with the stock RB25det engine, and stock turbo setup etc. (has after market intake, exhaust and front mount intercooler.) my question is if I bypass the stock 5-7 boost function, regap plugs, can i change out the BOV with a atmosphere vented version and change out stock actuator with hks adjustable turbo actuator on otherwise stock setup? would it run well or be beneficial or would other changes be needed? thanks I have been restoring 50's cars for decades, and only a few supercharger system, new to anything turbo.
  3. what is the stock fuel injector cc/size on a 98 rb25det er34 skyline gtt thanks
  4. is there a difference between a R34 GT 5 speed push clutch slave cylinder hose and a R34 GTT 5 speed pull clutch slave cylinder hose?
  5. Chids34, Its not always worth buying a GTT instead of modifying a GT if you want it build it, do it how you want. i too have a GT which i have built into a GT/GTT/GTR what ever you want to call it, its a R34 skyline that i built to suit my wants and needs. in many cases using a GT car as the start up build platform may be better for what you are building, as i too did not want to buy a GTT just to get a turbo engine then to have to eliminate many other parts and functions that makes it a GTT, example i didn't want like 4 wheel steering, traction control, etc. and if you come across a good deal, or a rare gt factory color like i did , dont pass on it hoping to find the same but in a GTT. well worth it to buy or stay with the GT and modify. if you want to do that, do it. there are situations where it is worth it to do it the way you originally described. as far as this list: a) replace GT engine with GTT engine/ would be a nice upgrade and way easier then putting turbo on a RB25DE b) replace GT transmission with GTT transmission/ not a must as the stock GT trans are fine c) replace GT brakes with GTST/356mm BBK/ not necessary for your application, yet, easy if want to do it upgrade brakes d) replace entire suspension setup/ certainly not necessary get coil overs and add rear sway bar, then functionality same as GTT e) replace exhaust (the GTT one aint great but lol better than the GT surely) /you probably going to mod the exhaust anyway f) replace fuel pump/entire fuel pump wiring (its terrible in GT)/ this i would due not cause GT are terrible but because of the age g) replace diff/ even if it was a GTT, these have vis diffs, which your gonna want to change to a mec. LSD and way, which are available for a GT rear diff main recap build it how you want , and dont let any one tell you its not worth it, factor in what you want to spend on time and money. then do it the way you see fit.as long as you dont do anything illegal or try to sell it as something its not. who cares, build it the way you want.
  6. I did not check Tridon as i never heard of them and I'm in the US, so I go to brands I use and have heard of like Anco, bosch, rainx, Michelin, piaa, Acdelco, etc brands that are available locally. I guess I should have asked it like this: what size wipers are you guys using on your R34's? and much like my other cars the "factory" size is not always the best: for example my Chevrolet S10 says to use 20 on both sides, driver and passenger, however if one does so the passenger side hangs of the corner of the windshield and driver side hits the windows seal when using, so I run a 18 on one side and a 17 on the other, the over lap is better, less wiper noise and they don't hit or jump off or hit any windshield surrounding components. additionally they don't look so over sized as 20's do.
  7. I don't have the car in my possession to measure, online says anything from 18-21 for everything. looking to find someone here that has a r34 that actually knows the correct sizes. and all the online catalogs I have found do not list the r34 skyline https://www.boschautoparts.com/en/auto/wiper-blades/microedge-wiper-blades
  8. also the fronts are both 21" right?
  9. what is the size and style of the rear wiper on a 98 R34 GTT skyline? thanks
  10. I was curious if any one had modified a R34 GTT front hood lip by incorporating it into the top edge of the front bumper, then trimming off the leading edge of the hood to give it a hood/bumper style closer to the gtr r34 ? I don't like the large gap under the hood lip to the front bumper. this way the front lip would close the gap between the bumper and lip, and the lip would fall "below" the hood edge. I love my current body kit and everything else about it, and I cant find a similar front bumper that has the upper portion built into it, so my thought was to remove the hood leading edge lip and attach it to the top edge of the front bumper, then cut off the leading edge of the hood. wondering if any one had done this?
  11. true but looking for a high quality version that is similar material to stock GTR emblems
  12. yah I found that link prior to posting as it got me no where, hoping someone had picked up the pieces...
  13. any one know someone who has these, makes them or any info about availability of these emblems that are for a GTT but made in the same style as the GTR badges/emblems? thanks
  14. no, all they make is what they call the Z tuned style front bumper/ lip and its peppered with all kinds of holes, flared hood edge and extra vent holes, kinda ruins the look. only one I can find every made was the old east bear gts-r style your car had.
  15. what is the correct stock replacement part # for the stock clutch slave cylinder setup on a 98 r34 skyline gtt with 5 speed manual and neo rb25det engine? thanks
  16. trying to gather as much info I can on swapping a 5 speed on a 1998 R34 25gt skyline. planning on swapping trans from stock 25GT FS5W71C 5 speed to the GTT FS5R30A 5 speed so far I have researched and it tells me that pretty easy swap, what i will need/to do: swap the trans install new FS5R30A , a new SPec brand stage 1 or 2 clutch setup as the stock trans used a push type and GTT trans uses a pull type/ is this as easy as disconnecting the line to slave cylinder and reconnecting to a pull type slave cylinder, or will pedal assembly /hose line etc. or other have to be altered/changed? I read the trans mount cross member is different, but what is different with cross member? something that can be welded/by modifying a stock 25GT trans cross member? the drive shaft is shorter then the 25gt one, so I will shorten or source a good used GTT drive shaft and install a GTT shifter , all else will line up, connect etc. is this all correct? is there something I am missing? like is the flywheel compatible? speedo compatible? etc. thanks
  17. are the stock turbocharger on the rb25det neo ball bearing or journal bearing type? what would be a good brand and model for a stock replacement?
  18. I will check out Hypergear, thanks probably not be a possibility as they are in Melbourne and I am in the US, but ill get their input.
  19. hello all, 98 R34 GTT RB25DET NEO engine with front mount Greddy intercooler, APExi intake, and kakimoto N1 3 inch full exhaust system , spec clutch, two stage boost "eliminated" (set to 7 )and a walbro 255 pump, nothing crazy. looking at replacing the turbo with a fresh one as current one is original and definitely worn... I would like a "bolt in" type that utilizes all current mounting, connections , stock exhaust manifold and piping, looking at a "stock" bolt in replacement a/r .63 https://www.ebay.com/itm/153337361041 OR a/r .70 https://www.ebay.com/itm/392114863244 what would be the advantages or disadvantages if I go with the .70, instead of a .63? is there something else that would need to be changed to actually gain anything when putting in the .70 unit? thanks
  20. you list "passenger quarter glass" twice, do you have a drivers side also?
  21. 1998 ER34, GTT can someone tell me where one can get the back seat side windows (quarter glass) here in the US? I would appear that the "seal surround" is built into the glass and is not replaceable separately? how do they mount? do they "glue" in or use setting tape or bolt in ?
  22. yes, and only find one old post from a guy with a black gtt that had the full kit on his car. but nothing "for sale" I also contacted East bear and they don not or can they make this "original GTR style" front bumper, only their new Z tuned style.
  23. I have goggled all of these things and read stuff for many hours before I posted my first, in doing so I gain no real clear answers, this is why I posted here as I was told it was suppose to be a community of people who knew these intricate details, it is clear that everyone has their own opinion, I am not looking for opinions, I am looking for facts. like stock fluids that came in the car when new. if you don't know please don't reply, and don't send me a link to Google or search engine.
  24. now on to the RB25DET 5 speed trans, what was the stock fluid in these?
  25. I do not find any info on fuel that pertains to pump fuel that is available in the US, we are really lucky to find 91 octane, never seen anything higher then 92, will this be a concern because of the fuel lower resistance to detonation? everything I read for else where it sounds like 98 is commonly found. 87 to 89 is what is normally available around here. once in a while I find "Non-oxygenated gasoline" but this only pertains to it supposedly not having any additives but an increase in fuels oxygen content. the fuel has no ethanol and is to reduce corrosion problems. but doesn't affect octane rating. I am also thinking that as most other "newer" cars I have the computer is constantly adjusting the timing for ignition depending on various sensors and readings, therefore preventing pre-ignition knock. is this same for the ER34 GTT skylines? never had a turbocharged car, looking for sound advise.
