Probably run for ever if left as stock, no one does that.

You can have a look in various threads but here's a few things that go wrong with them.

1. The original turbo needs replacing if at high KM's, they tend to break

2. The gearbox is strong but the changes of gear in 4th and 5th can be rough

3. The clutch will burn out if you use the car for power launches :-)

Lots of things can go wrong........

Get it looked by a good mechanic......

I would suggest you change all the pumps when you get it though..ie..fuel...water...and most of all oil.

Oh..yeah..if it has a after market computer..get it re-tuned..that is if you have no Dyno sheet.

Cheers

:)

Oh yeah..look up the engine failure thread..you will see how they can fail.

    • Yer Nissan basically told me to get f**ked on my V37 firmware or any update for that matter. Basically Private/grey import and is not released in Australia and No Parts can be offered in Australia to fit or any software upgrades or something to that nature.  
    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
