  1. Hi all, I've been a member on here for a little while now, but have only start becoming fully active in the last few months. I purchased my silver R34 GTT last year around mid-August I think it was. Appearance wise it was completely stock, but it had a few performance goodies. It was nice to finally get a turbo car, my first car was a '94 Suzuki Swift GTi, and after that I had a '00 S15 Autech, both were nice, but obviously wouldn't compete with this performance wise. I live in Dubbo NSW, where there are a few imports getting around, but not many, mostly P platers in non-turbo Supra’s haha. At the time of purchase the Skyline had the following mods: Apexi Power FC + hand controller (tuned prior to the hiflow turbo to 206kw) e-Boost2 Hiflowed turbo Splitfire ignition coils Trust front mount intercooler (retaining factory piping holes) Trust pod filter 3" turbo back exhaust JVC head unit It also has a factory sunroof. Not something I was looking for but figured it was a bonus, though, after driving it for a few weeks I realised how tiny it was The car had close to 150,000kms on it, but the previous owner who lived in bathurst was a guy in his mid-thirties who had owned the car since 2001 and had all receipts from when it was imported, its services, and all work carried out on it. He was pretty meticulous. The km's didn't bother me after seeing the condition of the car and meeting the guy. We settled on a decent price and I was a happy Skyline owner I will also note that this is my secondary ‘toy’ car. I own a VY Commodore for my daily duties, and because my girlfriend is at university and I wanted something easy to travel in, so it does that well. At first I didn’t do anything to the car, I wanted to drive it for a little bit and enjoy it without spending money. It only took me a couple of weeks before I decided to pull off the NEO engine cover though, and also take out the factory air intake ‘snorkel’. It looks pretty crappy but I wasn't a big fan of the cover either. After a couple of months of ownership I decided to head to a local drag meet which is a 1/8th mile, held at an old airport near Wellington. I went with a friend who has a Sil80 pig. Wasn’t expecting any amazing results, just wanted to go for the fun of it and ‘play’ in a legal environment. It’s the only ‘track’ related thing I can do without travelling 4 hours. I had a number of runs throughout the day, and was improving each run, until my diff begun to play up. It started doing singles and was launching terribly. I think the best run I managed was a low 9.3. I know I could’ve definitely done better, but I was still learning. After the drags I obviously needed to fix the diff, so I decided rather than repair it or replace it with a stock diff I would go a 1.5way. I decided to go with the Nismo Pro GT LSD 1.5way so I ordered this online. While waiting for the diff I bought some second hand King Springs and Bilstein shocks from a forum member. I decided it was time to fix the ‘boat-ish’ look the Skyline had. They never turned up. Luckily, having paid using PayPal I got my money back, and bought another second hand set of springs on eBay. I chose spring for the current time as after putting coilovers on the S15 I previously owned I got sick of the roughness on the ‘country’ roads too quick. Once these turned up I got a mate to help me fit them and I was amazed at the difference. It looked better and drove firmer too, but still not rough. Once lowered I decided I needed to source some wheels. I kept my eyes on the forums and soon found a set of Rota DPT 18x9.5 +22 for sale with tyres for a reasonable price. So I purchased these. I was a little unsure how the fitment would go, but from what I read I was hoping they would be fine. I also rolled the rear guards in preparation for them, just using one of the the ‘cheap’ eBay guard rollers. This worked a treat. When the wheels turned up they had a few more marks around them to what was pictured/described, possible because of the poor ‘protection’ the seller provided when having the wheels delivered. But anyway, I guess that’s part of the risk you take when buying second hand. I got home from work the next day and went to fit the wheels all excited and discovered that my wheel nuts were not going to fit. I raced around town trying to find some that would fit to no luck. As a result I bought some 50mm extended wheel nuts from Cartel Aus, and opted for blue ones, as I thought they would match the black wheels on the silver paint. Once these arrived I fitted the wheels and was happy with the appearance. Not quite ‘build’ related, but I went for a bit of a drive one weekend when I had nothing better to do with a mate Kam, also a member on here, who just recently purchased a R32 GTR. Originally I was just going over to visit him (about an hours drive) and we would drive to Mudgee for lunch. This ended up in about an 11hr round trip drive for me after we decided to drive all the way to Bathurst and cruise around Mount Panorama before heading home. Next the diff arrived and I tried to find somewhere local to fit it. After being refused service by about 5 different local ‘transmission and differential’ shops, absolute joke but I guess that’s half the trouble with living ‘rural’ with an import, I finally found someone who would fit the diff for me. I must say, best thing I have done to a car so far. After driving the car for 20minutes I felt like I learnt so much. The car felt so much nicer to drive too. After fitting the diff I haven’t done much with the car, just been driving it around to bed in the new diff. Did go for a cruise out of town with a mate in his XR6 and a couple of mates with bikes. I attended a local car show with Kam in his GTR and a couple of other mates, who had R32 GTST, XR6 turbo and a Supra (N/A). It was good to attend this and push some local support for imports. I wanted to do this because the ‘charity car show’ had about 16 trophies covering Holden, Ford, muscle, bikes, utes, even ‘country utes’ and tractors, but nothing for imports. We gave them a bit of shit about it haha. Ahh to be in the country *bliss*. After the event we went for a bit of a drive. Along the way, the clutch slipped in 3rd gear, and later slipped in 2nd and 3rd. Time for a new clutch. Because I’m saving for a month’s holiday in Japan my budget is tight. But I wanted to replace it as there is a motorkhana event on locally at Easter which I want to attend, and have already paid to enter. I picked up an Exedy heavy duty clutch (just a basic one) on eBay for cheap that was coming out of a wreck. I received that a couple of days ago and am going to get a couple of mates to help with getting that fitted. Soo… this gets us to present time. Let me know what you guys think and I’ll update more as things happen Tim

Incredibly stumped on this one, Uploader wouldnt let me upload windows media player files so i posted it on youtube and ill throw the link in the box too. Any help is greatly appreciated. And ill readily be checking the thread to answer more questions thanks guys~~!
  8. A picture tells a thousand words, that being said, I believe you should breeze over some photo and video footage i have collected. http://imgur.com/a/PgJK6 The time has come for me to part ways with my beloved 1998 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-Turbo Coupe The odometer readout is 78000 km's This is without doubt the cleanest R34 GT-T you will find in Sydney and the most mechanically sound. I am the first Australian Owner of this car. Subsequently I have made sure to keep the condition and specifications exactly the same to keep the car 100% JDM. This car has been my absolute child, saying that I have taken care of her religiously feeding her the best fuel (Shell VPower) and the finest oils. Feeling the need to maintain her, I took the liberty to add Four Brand new tyres which still have around 90% tread. Here is a guide to the additions made to the car in Japan before myself. - R34 GTR Front Brake Callipers - R34 GTR Electronic Dash - HKS Coil overs - SSR Wheels - 3.5" Exhaust (The tone of the exhaust is not obnoxious, which I have grown to love. It is a solid rich tone, not too loud) Besides these additions, the car is completely stock with a great interior. Reason for selling: - I am in the process of starting up a business with my mates and I need to improve my cash flow. - I am not in the greatest rush to sell the car, as I do have other means for income, that being said, NO LOWBALL offers please. Asking Price: $19500 Negotiable *** Just under 3 years Warranty remaining with the importer of the vehicle*** If you have any queries don't hesitate to ask.
  9. Hi All, I posted this in Supraforums, but i was also advised to post in this forum too. After 8 glorious years of ownership, the time has come to say goodbye to my pride and joy. We now need a larger vehicle. I have loved this car to bits and I want it to go to a good home. It is a very well kept 1998 SZ-R. 6sp Manual and factory optioned with Torsen LSD, Getrag Gearbox & larger brakes. Has clocked 107,700kms. It is in great condition. Only the front lip is a little damaged and needs some TLC. The car has always been garaged. Better still - i have kept this car unmodded. If you're into your mods, why not use this as a canvas? I am the first owner since import into W.A. Still drives like a dream and has recently had it's 100k service. I have service history documents since my ownership, which i'm happy to provide. I also have the rear spoiler (taken off). It is in excellent condition. It is included in the price, but comes unfitted. I'm asking $16,990. I think this is a very reasonable price for this rare vehicle. Contact Bobby on 0404 023 010.

  18. Hello So its sorta hard to explain, but ill try my best. I have a 1998 R34 GTT Skyline, It has a rb25det NEO. It has no engine mods other then an oiled HKS Pod filter, Apexi Front mount intercooler and an Apexi AVC-R Boot contoller. I have a problem (is most noticable in 3rd gear) where when i hit apoximatley 5000rpm power drops and from outside the car it sounds like im on red line apprently. I am still obtaining the same out of boost and injection percentage according to the Apexi AVC-R. When i set the boost at stock pressure the problem goes away. However the problem accours again when i turn the boost up. Starting at 9 psi and onward up to 11 psi! (i havent tried to go any higher) iver also tried it with traction control on and off and it makes no difference. Please help, Do i need a tune or new plugs and coils, etc... Thanks for your help, Im new to all this. Alex
  19. Hi Everyone, I have my 1998 R34 4 Door up for sale. I've owned this car since 2005. I purchased it from Sportscar Warehouse in Southport who imported it into Australia. It's been a great car. I've put in a stereo: * Alpine Head Unit * Alpine 6" coax rears * Boston Pro 60 6.5" split fronts * Coustic 4 channel Amp * Alpine 500W Monoblock Sub Amp * Alpine 12" Type R sub * All doors sound deadened with Dynamat Extreme The engine has remained stock except for some Yellow Jacket coil packs to fix the annoying Skyline coil pack issue. The car came with a turbo timer when I purchased it. I've recently had the car tinted. Less than 6 weeks old. I've only ever had 1 issue with the car and that was when I went to start it and it randomly wouldn't kick over. I got Lube Mobile out to take a look at it and they said the compression was wrecked and that the engine was ruined. There is a post around here about it somewhere questioning how it worked perfectly up until that point then all of a sudden wouldn't start. After the car sat in my front yard for 3 months waiting for me to work out what I was going to do with it, I replaced the now-flat battery and the car kicked over first go and never had any issues since. Turns out the ECU just needed to be reset. I've had a new car since April 2004 and I was going to do this car up into a weekend weapon, but now I'm buying a house and could use the money. I've kept it registered and insured (Just Car) up until now but registration lapsed in February. The car does need some things done for roadworthy: * L/H & R/H Tie Rod Ends Worn (Quoted $200) * Wheel Alignment * All tyres (I think these are borderline very borderline. Currently has Michelin Pilot Sport 3) (Quoted $132 each for cheapies) * Caster Bushes worn (Quoted $240) Price: $6,000 as is, unregistered. I'm happy to get the above items fixed and the car registered (12months from Feb) however price will be $8,000. I have also attached a carsales Car Facts report if you'd like to check it out. Mobile: 0433 261 660 Located: Rochedale South Kilometres: 143,280 Reason for selling: Buying a house, have a work car and no longer need the skyline. Any questions, let me know. Cheers, Dave CarFacts History Report.pdf
