  1. Not saying they are gospel by any means, but the motiveDVD GT-R just went through this exact query. They decided to keep to the stock rev limit to preserve of the stock head, stock girdle plate and stock crank. Pt.2 of 2

    Wouldn't it still be cheaper to re-build the -5 turbos and fit all the parts you have up? Unless you are buying a second hand single kit with turbo, manifold, fabricated dump pipe, the process will set you back anywhere from $10-15K in parts + labour, where as rebuilding the -5s will set you back $1500 and fitting everything you have up will probably cost $2-3K depending where you go.

    huge result, should be completely different weapon now.
  4. I believe the 2 ash trays you ordered were; - dark brushed look silver is from a Series II R34 GTR - 00(MY01)-02 - the black ashtray is from a Series I R34 GT-t The astray you need is the Series I 99-00(MY00) astray which is a light gold color
  5. you can fit 265 up to 295 on 10.5 rims, depending on your ride height and camber, i believe with 285 and 295 width will scrub a little bit at full steering lock at the front, you may also need to play with camber and roll the guards and at the rear if you are running a lowered ride height. I have 265/35/18s on 18x10.5+15 and i was conscious that they were a bit stretched, but my wheel alignment guy was happy with how they sit on the rim. To me, 275 would be a perfect fit with no scrubbing on the front. You can check out the R34s here to get an idea of various tyre sizes on 18inch wheels, plenty of variety. http://www.global-auto.ne.jp/stock/public_model_home.php?model=BNR34

    if you are looking for new, heasmans steering in tempe, NSW can supply the bilstein range (pss9, clubsport, etc).
  8. I have both cars in the family, the R34 25GT we've had since 2009 (60,000kms), now has 130,000kms, besides O2 sensors and coilpacks we have not had to replace anything other than general servicing. It's true the DC2R is much more of a sports car (1000kgs, Recaros, 8400rpm redline, much more body bracing), but being a thoroughbred it will need more maintenance as they are 15yo+ cars. Our one has cost a small fortune to keep going (suspension, bushes/arms/mounts, oil leaks, electrics etc.) I dare say it'd be harder to find a DC2R in good nick than a N/A R34 these days, and for a cruiser (what you do the most of on your Ps) the 34 is a nicer/cooler car.
  9. With my R34 i ended up with MCA Reds with 12kg/5kg springs - dampers were valved for tarmac rally/hillclimb rather than circuit/track Came from M-Spec stock suspension which was surprisingly jarring on sydney roads, the MCAs were an improvement in ride-quality both when driving quickly and at the speed limit. I went with MCA as they had done speciifc model testing on the R34, where i believe shockworks' test car was a R32 GTR. Another option to consider is PSS9 bilsteins which are a good choice off the shelf, and can be bought and serviced in Sydney by Heasmans Some info might be useful from my thread.

  11. Congrats mate, a lot of time and coin leading up to now.

    Bigger hi-volume pump should be matched with a larger capacity sump if budget allows, a tomei/nitto pump will be capable of higher rpm and thus will be able to move a higher volume of oil. Larger returns and crankcase venting also good 'while you're here' mods.

  13. Engine bay work is night and day compared to when you got it, looks superbly tidy.
  14. As a base you can take the price of a clean stock example, and add half of the total cost of modification (labour and parts).
  15. Hi Marc, could you change mine to JGTC please? Thanks in advance.
