  1. Hi all, I'm after recommendations on a Street suspension set up for an R33. From what I can see the Bilstein B6 shocks are good but need some decent springs to go with it - and it appears King Springs don't sell any that suit the R33 anymore. Whiteline sway bars seem to be a popular mod as well to eliminate the body roll. Would I be able to achieve a lower than stock ride height using the Bilsteins? At the moment the car is sitting at 63cm from ground to the centre of the wheel arch on some old Apexi shocks. Thanks in advance
  2. hello! if any of you have an r33 gtr and have an oil relocation kit installed, i would be grateful if you shared with me what you used as a mount point. i don't have the oil cooler, i think i will be purchasing an HKS (15004-AN004) kit down the road, but for now i have a greddy relocation kit. this thing doesn't exactly come with any kind of real instruction, just theoretical on how it should work. is there an existing bracket that i should be leveraging, or did you need to drill new holes in the engine bay to get the position correct? is there anything i should know before taking this on? i figured i'd put the adapter plate on the block and then bolt the relocation kit in an easy to access spot on the driver's side, cut the AN hosing to correct lengths and then make the connections. thanks in advance for the recommendations and help!
  3. Out of production MCA purples for R33 or R34 GTR, in need of a rebuild as they are knocking and leaking. MCA rebuild costs around $200 per corner, so buying these then rebuilding would still total less than new equivalents (MCA Pro Comfort). When new, they were comfortable on the streets, but still provided enough performance to enjoy a spirited drive. Springs are as follows: Front = 180mm 12kg Rear = 220mm 5kg Willing to ship, but prefer pickup $500
  4. 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
  5. Hello, i am looking to replace my turbo for an original or direct replacement for my -95 R33 GTST with an RB25DET. I have been looking online but cand find a oem turbo or a simmilar bolt on turbo... Can anyone help me?
  6. i am looking for the OEM cassette head unit that came in the R33. i'm in north america, please let me know if you have one to sell that is in proper working order. cheers.
  7. Hello fellow Skyline owners! I’ve had my car in the garage for 6 months now, during winter time. Before I put it off I had the car remapped. During the mapping session the car suffered from intermittent missfires on higher rpm. Then when I was done and started the car to drive home the car only ran on 5 cylinders. We did some fault searching, narrowed it down to cylinder 3. Then all of sudden after we swaped coilpack 3 & 1 around, it worked again. The coilpacks used at the time were Splitfires (5 years old). One of the things I wanted to do was to upgrade the ignition system, so I did. I Installed VR38 smart coils. Also swapped out the sparkplugs (ngk bcp7res) gapped at 0.7mm. This is when I found out that all of my old sparkplugs were very black and a bit wet. I originally thought this was a tuning or fuel realated issue since it was affecting all the of the cylinders. This week I started her up. after about 40 minutes of total running (idle) I removed to check my new plugs.. All the sparkplugs have what looks like fresh engine oil on them. The threads are clean, just on the base and half around the center electrode, just as the previous ones too had. Earlier sparkplugs i’ve had replaced has never looked like this and I find it odd that it’s like this on all the plugs. Do you guys have any ideas what would cause all the cylinders to have oil in them all of sudden? 🤔 Will upload a picture so you can see too. The car is a R33 RB25DET Car has uprated turbo,injectors,maf,ebc.. Running a apexi power fc. Unopend engine. Done about 90000km
  8. Hi guys, I just came across a complete front subframe assembly for an r34, the title of the ad just says r34 so I’m presuming it’s a coupe. I have an R33 at home and was wondering if the r34 front subframe assembly will bolt straight into the r33. Im looking to do this with relatively little modification of its needed, also does anyone know if it will throw off the geometry of the car or if it’s okay to be doing this. Thank you very much if you’s can help guys .
  9. I’m curious that no one has developed a drop-in 6 Speed synchro gearset for the standard R32 & R33 gearbox. I would imagine that there is a market for strong street gearbox with the Getrag ratios and maybe the Carbon Fibre syncros that are now available. PAR used to do a straight cut dog 6-speed gearset but no longer offer this product. Im interested if there are reasons it hasn’t been done before wether it’s space related or something I’m ignorant of. Seeing so many Getrag conversions are in 32’s and 33’s these days I would see a drop in gearset as being and attractive option to keep the modifications to minimum. Happy to hear all thoughts in this one. Cheers.
  10. I need help with what I should do with my diff it’s a Active LSD with a altessa pump system. It singles and I want to to double what can I do with this diff bleed it, weld it, get it shimmed, block off the altessa system? Idk what to do please help as I want to use my car for drifting / road use
  11. Hie skyline enthusiast! The names Sean and im from Malaysia. Been lurking in the forum for a while now, just decided to create a topic to share with you guys regarding my project and updates. A teaser of my car just out from paint.
  12. Hi all, The black paint on my r33 has been peeling. Can anyone please recommend a reputable paint shop in Sydney where I could get a respray. I'm not keen on doing a backyard job to fix it up. As a side note, roughly how much percentage value do you reckon the car would lose due to peeling paint such as this? Cheers
  13. hello all, Thought I would share some pics from my trip to Japan last year It was very difficult trying to find a meet on at the raceyways around the time we were going and I came across an Endless picture on the Mt Fuji Raceway website. I was not 100% sure what we were getting ourselves into but roughly translated some of the info as all of it was in Japanese!! and thought it would be going to check it out. It also happened to be on the date of my partners birthday so almost perfect for a car nut After many trains, buses and taxis all the way from Tokyo to Mt Fuji we only arrived towards the end of the meet and there weren't many spectators there. It was also very cold and snowy that day Was well worth the trip and the friendly locals were not bothered at us tourists poking around and looking at their pride and joys. If anyone has some questions or needs help with a trip to Japan let me know, happy to help where I can. We spent our time mostly in Tokyo and ventured out on the Shinkansen from there.

  16. Ok so i decided that I need to sell off my old brake setup as I'm going to be keeping the brembos i have on the car if I ever decide to sell it. These are 33 gtst brakes that I had on my car for approx 3 years and have been in storage for another 2 years. They are in great condition with no tears or damage to the dust boots on each caliper. The calipers have been painted in VHT gold (trying to replicate 34 gtr brembo colour) caliper paint this has stood the test of time and with a bit of a cleanup before you install they will look as good as new. I will also include a half empty can of the same paint for any touchups you may wish to do but these dont have any markings on them. Comes as a complete kit, Calipers, discs, lines, rotors (near new RDA slotted rotors for the front and machined standards for the rear) and a complete set of new brake pads front and rear. The Pads are Bendix Ultimate rears and QFM HPX's on the front, and of course all the associated nuts bolts and washers to go with them to make it a bolt in affair Its all boxed up and ready to go but be aware if I courier this in the box that its in its FKN HEAVY like id say 50+kg as its all tightly boxed up. Asking price is $400 and can be delivered locally to Penrith or Liverpool area 2pm - 3pm weekdays, Or I can arrange shipping (will split the boxes front to rear if needed to make shipping easier) Located Penrith, Sydney Want any details send me a PM or pm for phone number. Now for the pics in no real order Machined Rears Rear Calipers Rear no 2 Rear dust boots Fronts Front Rotor Front Rotor wear All boxed up, covered and ready to go
  17. So I've just replaced some exhaust system parts and have found that the cat-back part of the exhaust is bent, cracked and Im having clearance issues with the underbody too. So Im thinking it might be time to cough up to get it replaced. So my very vague question is, roughly how much do you think I'd be looking at to get a catback system made up for an ECR33 and any recommended places on the east side of Melbourne? thanks

  22. Hey everyone i bought some side skirts for my R33 coupe today and i hadn't realised that my car has no holes for the clips to go into. (the 4 or so holes under the doors) i just had a few questions, Is this standard for all GTS models? Can i get it done cheap at a body shop? If not, tips on how to do it myself? And where to buy more clips and side skirt seals? thanks in advance and again, sorry if its a stupid thing to ask! Cheers

  24. I apologize for the lack of photos, I'm just putting my feelers out to see if there is enough interest. If I get some decent offers I'll have the car detailed and re-post with some new photos. The photo is old but the only difference is a new GTR spoiler, colour matched. Absolutely regretful sale, I am selling because I am moving back to Cairns in 6-8 weeks and starting full time uni. Also now have a permanent back Injury which mates it extremely difficult to get in and out of a low car. I purchased the car back in 2009 off a guy who kept the car immaculate and has provided a folder with with a detailed service history and receipts. It has never seen the track and never been drifted. It's pretty much stock apart from a few minor mods. Heavy duty clutch GTR spoiler $2000 worth of audio - head deck, speakers, amp, 12 inch Alpine Type R sub in boot Pod filter (will include stock airbox and filter) Flood gate BOV HICAS lockout bar Will provide roadworthy and 12 months rego. 150000 k's The car has been a dream to own and I've never had a major problem. I've never raced or drifted it, had it serviced every 10000 k's. Currently selling the car out of Brisbane but can take the car to Cairns with me if I get the right offer. $8000 negotiable Willing to swap (also have an 07 GSXR 750 that I love to bits, but willing swap the r33 and bike for something worth 18k+) Mobile: 0426255586 Email: [email protected] Cheers, Jake.
  25. Hey Guys, Bought my R33 a while back and its gradually developed a shudder whenever i turn a tight corner at low speed. I understand that this is LSD locking up but should it normally shudder so hard? Also the guy i brought it off said its a Nismo diff, i don't know anything else about it. I did a bit of research and found out that the oil could cause the diff to lock up hard. So i brought some 85-140 lsd diff oil but the shudder is still there. Not sure what to do next, any help highly appreciated!
