Recommended Posts

Hey SAU

i have recently purchased an R34 gt-t and am wondering, like the r32, can you fit the R34 GTR front bar and R34 Bonnet,

while still using the standard head lights and guards ??

I know on my r32 this was not a problem...

My car came with a carbon bonnet and front lip to look like A gtr which i have removed...

I have sourced a GTR front bar but still looking for a bonnet. dont think it will be easy to find.

Anyone done this before ? and do you have any pics ?

To make a GTR front fit on a GTT you have to change bonnet inc. gtr hindges, front bar and guards but i think the head lights are ok not sure about them.

Its better to get a gtr style bar/bonnet for the gtt from a body kit place.

Front bar is ok, but the Bonnet is the main one im after, as the aftermarket bonnets are all defectable, i just took off a carbon fibre gtr bonnet.

yes, but the bar will look shite (same as a genuine GTR bar looks shite on R32 GTST) as it will bows in for the narrower front guards.

just wondering...do u have to fit GTR guards??? or just for the looks...any idea where to get hindges...thanks

I think you might need the guards to match up the front bar.

I have found all parts, bonnet, bar, and guards on yahoo japan...

Have a look on there for the hinges.

then you'll need rear guards to match up the front guards :(

no you DO NOT NEED gtr guards in order to have gtr bonnet! do a search. this got to be one of the most asked questions re r34 gtts!

I have an R34 GTT With a genuine R34 GTR front bar and it fits like a dream. not sure on the bonnet tho. looks hot too...

Excellent think i might start collecting some bits,

I already found front bar for $450, and bonnet i will have to import from japan.

Can you PM me a pic of your bar fitted to the GT-T.

Mark.

how much does the gtr bonnet usually cost? i assume its genuine and not fibreglass or carbon?

The GTR bonnet is aluminium for Vpec & Non Vspec. Vpec 2 is carbon but it is painted with air duct on the turbo side. Prices vary for 2nd hand. A friend of mine just converted his and the weight difference is that the GTT is so much heavier.

From my experience using a GTR Top Secret Dry Carbon bonnet, the handling is so much better and the car weight transfer feels more neutral. Plus the cooling benefit under the bonnet due to the hot air venting out from the scoop.

If you buy a GTR bonnet, you will need to change the bonnet hinges, lock panel and lock assembly to the GTR items. This will then leave a gap where the top mole of the front bar should be.

If you then buy a r34 GTR front bar, it will fit but the edges will not align properly due to the wider fenders of the GTR unless you do some work on it.

I'm going the east bears direction and should hopefully get it within a month or so. Plastic and no mods required.

I have a lip that if i use the stock bar, i can just put the lip in, and it brings the stock bar up to meet the GTR bonnet.

Unlike the R32 i dont think you can cut the GT-T Bonnet to look like a GTR as the GTR bonnet rises up and the hump is bigger to meet the front bar lip between the lights...

For prices on the bonnet contact forum sponsor slidewize, and search yahoo japan, there is a nunmber of them on there.

I have a carbon/fiberglass bonnet, but i have taken it off for defect reasons aswell, its a clearly obvious defect from a distance...

driftmeister.. did your friend convert his gtt bonnet to gtr? i really don't want to go carbon bonnet as i don't want to get defect for it.

He is using the whole front section of the GTR = Bonnet, fenders & front bar. You may need more parts other than the hinges and hoodlock. The front bar actually sit on a panel (not sure what part number) between the headlight which the GTT doesn't have. Plus once you install the fender, there is a small gap when u fit the small section like an inch lower than the GTT body. See the pics attached then u will understand.

i have these fill panels ready to go here in aus see http://www.uras.com.au/syohin/skyline.html#r34

Remmeber no matter what anyone says GTR bumper on GTT looks real shit as it has to bow in to compensate for narrower gaurds. I would seriuosly consider a aftermarket GTT bar of some description.

    • Your NEO head is worth quite a bit of coin, and since it has been serviced it is already in tip top condition. You could sell that and you'll have only a small shortfall for a used 2nd hand NEO motor. Slap on a new head gasket, using major service kit, a few new seals here and there and you'll have a very capable motor to do 300kW ~ 400kW all day.
    • https://www.3si.org/threads/crusty-white-balls-on-spark-plugs.666041/ If you see little bits of aluminum on the plugs that's a detonation sign. They don't need to melt for there to be a problem. Coil harnesses disintegrating is normal. Welcome to owning these cars. A new one will last decades done right. Run a compression test and see if they're all ok. If so just keep running it.
    • I hear you! Been thinking about this a lot actually and I fully agree. Been wanting to get a second car that my partner can drive as well. But if I'm spending money on a car it has to be something that is fun to drive. And I already have a big old boosted boat so want something light and nimble. Pretty high on my list is the Honda S660. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_S660 Modern Honda so hopefully reliable, small, light-weight, high-ish revving 6 speed manual. Rear wheel drive. They are slow but apparently heaps of fun. And Jen loves the look of them. We see them every now and then around here. Main concern is that it's tiny and I might not fit.
    • You can be fully serviced Neo heads for $3000 online, so don’t think i will quite get $5000 for it. I would probably end up just keeping the head for a worst case scenario down the line, best case is i have a new head to upgrade if something happens to the current one in the future, as i imagine these will get harder and harder to find
    • Well, the key thing is still your budget (and time, but you've said you don't have much), and the fact you are happy with the existing 300kw for now. If I were you I'd buy the 5k engine, sell the head (probably for 5k these days as its a 25 NEO), swap your head onto it and send it.  Then, as funds allow, collect parts to rebuild your now spare bottom end properly.
