  1. So I bought a 1996 Nissan Skyline R33 in October last year and thought you know I'm going to enjoy the car as it is and slowly upgrade/fix things. For those looking for a car with massive amounts of power, this is not the build for you. This is for those who are like me (i'm sure you exist) who are happy with their stock car, and spend time washing, polishing, fixing things and just enjoying the car for what it is. I am an engineering student and also work part time which funds my car therefore everything is small and restricted. Many of you thinking, why bother with a build thread. My reply is because I can and why not. I have been reading other peoples threads and it has inspired me to start my own. Also I lost most of my pictures since October and am working on recovering them. So without further ado, here goes. This is my first car. I saved up for 2 years working on weekends to buy this. After a year of searching and finding all sorts of shit cars which had been modified, i found this bone stock Series 2 R33 GTST. The only thing upgraded was the audio and the wheels. I have the standard wheels sitting too just in case I need em one day. with ~158,000 kms (more on this later). I absolutely love it. I'm obsessed with cleaning it and my first aim was to fix everything that was not working or not working 100%. So the last 8 months have been small upgrades and improving things in the car. This is a picture of the day it came home. Instantly I decided it was time for a wash and a drive and photoshoot.
  2. 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
  3. Over two years of ownership I thought I'd make a build thread as i don't have enough procrastination in my life as it is. up until this car I hadn't owned a car more than 6 months before selling it due to being bored of it or finding something else. Originally bought this car back in November 2012 as a means for a quick profit. The plan being to fix the little problems, swap the wheels and sell it. However as with most thing in life it did not go to plan... This is how it was when i bought it coilovers with chopped springs 1/2 turbo converted lenso D1r 18x11.5 +12 with 235/40/18 Horrible interior missing parts. First thing to go was the enormous wheels which just were not to my taste and did not suit the car in my opinion. in the mean time i put the lenso on my trike haha Bought some old school work wheels for $70 to roll on while I sold the lensos and bought another set. also put some stock struts with lowered springs in. Swapped the lensos for a few sets of wheels and cash my way. Included in the swapped sets was a set of R32 GTR rims Due to the excessive guard rolling that had been required to “fit” the 18’s and the ill-fitting +30mm vented fiberglass guards the gtr wheels sat a fair way inside. which is kinda funny on 4 door here is where i will leave it for the first post and will steadily update to present day over the next weeks

  25. Hi all, new Skyline owner. Made this account to see if anyone could help identify the model of R31 I bought. As far as I can tell it's just a plain old 1989 Executive apart from the fact that it has these "Special Edition" stickers on the front quarter panels. I searched for hours online and found nothing mentioning a Special Edition Executive. I don't think I've been scammed because I bought this off an old guy and he sold it to me for just a few hundred. I didn't buy it because of the stickers either, I was already going to buy it. Did a dealership put these on just to increase sales or something? Thanks guys.
