  1. Hey everyone, ever since I was around 10-12 (im 17 now) I have had me eyes set on buying an R32 GTS-T, but I was told multiple times because they're turbocharged I wouldn't be able to get one until i'm 25, but recently i've read up on a few sources that in QLD you can own and drive a turbocharged R32 GTS-T on P's because they are about 123 kW/T and the max is 125 kW/T, if this is true I also read up that you need an exemption, what would I have to do to be able to drive one? (I'm aware im prolly gonna get some comments saying its not worth it, or that i'm going to get pulled over all the time etc etc, but i honestly don't mind this is my dream car an im down to go through all that.) Sincerely Kye. Please let me know if this is the wrong area of the forum to be asking.
  2. Hello. I bought myt skyline 4yrs ago. First I drove it thru winter (surprisingly good winter ride). At the spring stock turbo waste got stuck. Car was 3 months in the carage. I put kinuqawa bolt on turbo and cheap low mount exhaust manigold. It was rest of the summer this way. Then I planned to do some little changes at the winter. But as many of you know things start to get bigger. I start building rollcage and strip whole car down. When car was tripped it would be stubid not to do some things like stich weldin and sandblasting the body etc. I also wanted to do some wisual mods and strip everything extra weight out from the body. Rollcage caused some changes also. Like stock heater system is not fitting anymore. Rear subfame and diff bushes changed to aluminium. Rear and front subframes and stock controll arms got some extra strenght also. Bash bars in front and back wore made from scratch. Now car is going back to gether slowly and I hope to get it done before 2030 🤣 Here is some picks of it. More you can see from my ig @nuut3ro
  3. So this is my first ever write up and unfortunately I didn’t take very many progress pictures but I will try my best to explain the process with some picture aids 👍🏻 Materials: * plastic floor trim 96in x 6in x 5/16 (x2) you can get these at Lowe’s or Home Depot * 3 inch L brackets (x8) Found at Lowe’s * Self tapping screws ( to mount brackets to car) * Hardware to mount bracket to skirt extensions ( I used black license plate hardware with plastic backings x16) Tools: Grinder, drill, something to cut the plastic trim with. Process: So for a sedan with stock type M skirts the overall length is 73 inches (coupes might be different I suggest measuring before cutting). After this you want to get the skirt extension as level as you can between the front and rear low points to do this I used various objects like toolboxes and children’s books I started with measuring out the two brackets that would be in the center of the skirt, I measured from the top of the pinch weld to the bottom of the skirt extension. If i remember correctly it was roughly 1.25-1.5 inches, always cut bigger than you think as you can grind down the bracket until you have a perfect fit. The end result would be for the top of the bracket to be flush with the top of the pinch weld, Once you have the bracket cut to the right spot and the bottom arm of the bracket gently rests against the skirt with the various objects keeping the skirt level then you mark the hole with a sharpie and install the bracket. Once you have the two center brackets installed to the car you can drive some temp screws through the bottom of the skirt extension to hold it in place as well as Mark the holes for the permanent hardware. Now it’s time to work on the ends, these are a little more complex to line up and install as you have to more aware of the jacking locations. Front Rear For the front I had to turn my steering wheel to gain access to inside of the wheel well and feel for a flush surface to mount the bracket to, as i held the bracket against the surface and lined it up with the bottom of the skirt extension i used a sharpie to mark the hole and kinda outline the bracket so i had a general idea of where to drill once I jacked the car up and got under it. If you’re pretty coordinated you could probably just blindly full send a screw through the hole. Same concept applied to the rear. Just make sure you have plenty of space between the bracket and the jack pad as you will have to trim the inside of the skirt to have room to use the the jack pads. Once the skirt extension is mounted you can mark where you need to cut to allow a floor jack access to the pads. Once the ends are installed drive some temp screws through the bottom of the skirt extension. Or just mark the holes on the bottom with a sharpie to drill later. Now all that’s left is marking the area to cut for the jack pads, uninstall the skirt extension and make the cuts. Unfortunately my car is too low to use the jack pads without the floor jack arm making contact with the skirt extension, to get around this I either jack up the car from the differential, use the emergency jack, or you could potential use something on the floor jack pad to help it gain elevation before the arm makes contact with the extension. After i made the cuts i reinstalled everything with the temp screws through the bottom of the skirt extension and made sure everything was still level. Once I was happy with it I uninstalled everything including the brackets and prepped for paint. At this point I drilled out the holes to accommodate the permanent hardware ( I would try and find something that has a really flush bolt head for a cleaner look) Once the extensions and brackets are painted it’s time to install everything, make sure you remember which bracket goes where or you will be making extra adjustments and possibly drilling new holes. To install the hardware through the top you will need to install the brackets to extensions first then install the entire assembly on the car. After the brackets are installed on the extension I would suggest to install the center two brackets first and then work the ends. I hope this write up helps anyone trying to do this, and if you have any questions send me a pm and I’ll do my best to answer them 👍🏻
  4. Hey people, I've had my black 1997 R33 gtst now for 11 years, since it was imported from n. Its completely stock, in what I'd assume is really good condition apart from needing a good vacuum; and it's completely stock (apart from 34 GTR rims). Has a sunroof, 186,000 ks but runs like a dream Time to sell and get a more practical boat. Anyone know what they're worth these days? I bought it in 2010 for $14k. I'm going to cry when I sell it, honestly. But I can't garage it 😭 Appreciate any guesses etc.
  5. 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.
  6. G'day ppl could I get pointers on a full rebuild of anRB@% GTST Series II engine for 500 to 1000 hp. I'm after horsepower and reliability together I dont want to be breaking somthing all the time lol. How much roughly could the rebuild cost aswell rough figures of what other ppl have spent and the ideas aswell would be helpfull. Im also south of brissy qld so any shop recommendations would be greatfull to.
  7. Good day guys, I'm currently working on a RB20DET that I have bought which was is in a pretty rough state. Just working on the motor and getting it all tidy. I just wanted to know if anyone has extended there injector, water temperature, CAS wiring.Reason being I've bought a front facing plenum and wanted to tuck in the wiring loom to give it a cleaner look around the intake manifold area. Also another thing is I'm going to be running 600CC Nismo injectors, ordered in some new plugs for the injectors as there different. But wanted to know if it does matter which injector plug goes where? or is there a specific order they plug in for each cylinder. My loom is currently out as I'll be extending it. Attached is some photos of the engine bay before and after, Nty to RFB. Cheers guys!
  8. Im converting my R32's brakes to GTR, just curios is the stock master cylinder enough to supply the calipers Efficiently? Has anyone already done this conversion? and if so what parts did you use? - Cheers
  9. Hey guys, My 33's exhaust is getting a bit old and I'm wanting to get a new system. I'm not sure whether to get one made or to buy one of the abundances of off the shelf systems online. There are a few systems for around the $1,100 mark on RHDJapan which seem okay, however I don't mind spending more on getting something made if that is the better option. Any opinions regarding whether custom is better, or some indication of what the best off the shelf system is? Thanks in advance
  10. Building this thing from a rolling shell into a dedicated drag car build. - 3.4L Spool stroker kit with drag I-beams - TH400 3-speed auto - Mickey Thompson ET Pro Radial tyres (275/60/15) - Goal is 7.xx seconds @ 175-ish.
  11. Hey guys, Hoping someone here might know if the clutch from an RB20 Air Conditioning Compressor was shared with any other Nissans or if even the coil was used with anything else? Being in the United States it's been a tough find looking for a working AC compressor replacement. Any info would be greatly appreciated!!
  12. r33 gtst rear drag setup suspension Hey guys just need some advice, have gone to heasmans to look at getting a proper rear suspension setup for my r33. They have suggested a bilstein adjustable coilover, for drag and street use. Im confused however, they mentioned the rears would have a rating of about 8kg, I was under the assumption based off other threads I would be moreso looking for alower kg rating such as 4kg? I have limited knowledge about rear coilover suspension hence going to heasmans. Just wanted some clarification before spending the money, Cheers
  13. So my car is completely stripped down now, shell is off to paint, and engine is at the machine shop for a refresh. Once back in my hands, the fun starts of putting her back together. Follow along!
  14. Hey guys I really need help with this one. So I recently bought a 96 r33 gtst with De motor and it needed a new speed sensor so I got help and ordered one from amayama which was all well and good but I believe they have sent me the s14 speed sensor instead (I could be wrong) Is there a way to manipulate it or should it work in general?
  15. Hi all, Looking for the hard rubber 90 degree elbows that sit just above factory intercooler holes in the R33 GTS-T chassis and connect the factory intercooler to the rest of the intake/turbo piping - the ones most return flow coolers connect up to as well. Look like this - happy with just one but can take both if you have. Most sellers don't seem interested in separating them from factory intercoolers but want to avoid buying a side intercooler when I don't need one. Thanks!

  17. Hey Everyone, Here is my 1993 Nissan Skyline GTS25T with a full authentic Veilside bodykit! To my knowledge the car was imported into Canada with the bodykit already installed which is why I have decided to keep it on for now as a tribute in sorts to the cars history. Not many people are a fan of the kit but I personally love it and all of its uniqueness. I have found many answers to my trouble shooting problems on SAU so figured I'll sign up! Feel free to ask anything and everything about the build! Cheers!
  18. hey guys Ill start this off with the day i bought my r32 gtst type m manual with 147xxx km it was fairly stock just had with pod, cooler and exhaust Here are some pics of when i bought it Drove it around for abit as it is till i came across a front end conversion off a gtr. Couldnt argue with the price so i grabbed straight them away. Ordered some rear over fenders and got straight to business. decided to change the colour and go ahead with gunmetal grey with a slight pearl. unfortunately i dont have photos of when the transformation was underway. Here are the results of the conversion and paint Was happy with the result. Came out really good but the only thing that fussed me was the engine bay colour but ill just do it later down the track. Sold the buddy clubs and picked up lmgt2. They were just temporary wheels till i found something wider. I picked up some gen bride seats off gumtree that came outta of a silvia, they were in decent condition just with some fade. Got some rails swapped over for my skyline. the car already had bride roof lining, door cards, glove box etc. Its a bit of an over kill but i dont mind it.
  19. Wanted: R32 GTS-T hicas system I need the front solenoid, cut off valve, and all the hydraulic lines. Will need to be posted to Tasmania Price: ?
  20. Hello, So at my last track day a couple weeks ago everything was going fine but after a couple sessions all of a sudden when i was pulling into the paddock, my car would not idle at all and had horrible misses below 2k rpm. Everywhere else in the rev range it ran fine an did not break up. Now I've done some testing so I went with the simple stuff first: plugs gapped right, r8 coils(deletes the ignitor). That did nothing. So then i replaced my coolant temp sensor and checked tps voltage, that fixed the idle issue. So I went to check my timing. With the light the first time i checked the marks were so far past advanced that it would have been blown up by now, so I was confused and shut the car off to have a drink. Came back and started it up again to look and now it was a little past the last mark at 30* degrees and was able to get it to 20, with the cas retarded almost all the way it allowed me too. I then went for a test drive and the car ran fine but when pulling it out of the driveway it died. I pulled it in to check the timing and it was the same at 20*. So i went to drive again and got out on the road and got on it, it reved up fine and built boost with no missing, but felt like it had legitimately zero power, and off throttle it gurgled a bit. I replaced my cas and that changed nothing. I'm stumbled at this point. Any pointers?? Thanks for any help.
  21. Hi all, Newbie here! currently working on building a forged rb25.6 with my old man and slowly learning things along the way, its going into my 93 r33 gtst as ive pushed the limits of my stocker XD. 23psi with standard studs, headgasket etc is a good effort right?
  22. Hey guys I need to know if everything for the aircon from the firewall forward in a gtst r32 fit into a r32 gtr? I've done research but found absolutely nothing Cheers fellas
  23. Where are the 33 gtsts for sale???? Preferably close to Brisbane. I miss having a skyline and can't wait to own another!!!
  24. Hi All, After some Tech info, R33 S1 GTST Sedan Auto, My radiator Is Leaking so I am chasing down a replacement , I am on top of that, I have one lined up, Just Checking to see if people know if following images are of a trans cooler? there are 2 hoses going into the base of the radiator and then around to this cooler, is this cooler enough for a daily driver? or is an upgrade required? if it is even a trans cooler, The radiator I am looking at is an all alloy one with no spots for the hoses for the trans oil, FYI I plan to convert to Manual in the not so distant future, Thanks in advance, Matt,
  25. Hi I'm a new to skylines can you guys help me with info on differentials So i have an r32 gtst, the diff uses 5x1 bolt drive shafts but i don't have the shafts for it (did these come out on the r32 or has it been swapped in?) But I've also got a diff with driveshafts in an r33 cradle that uses 3x2 bolt driveshafts that i could use instead (does that mean it's from a gts? I think the r33 gtst used 5x1) But yeah so what diffs came out in skylines (32, 33, and 34) are they all r200 diffs. Which models came out with lsd's, and what kind lsd's did they come out with? And what's the deal with abs and non-abs versions? I know there are 3x2, 5x1, and 6x1 pattern diffs/driveshaft. I've heard that 5x1 are stronger than 3x2 but how much power can all of them take? Are they all the same lengths and spline? Is the info for silvia diff + shafts the same? Thanks heaps any help you can give
