R32 Gtr! Blown A Head Gasket, What Else Can I Do?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I have a 1994 R32 GTR Veilside Evolution Widebody and have just blown a head gasket, funnily i drive the car with a huge amount of respect and never give it a hard time, a squirt here and there Yes, a hard time Never. Anyway, I am taking the car in to do the head gasket and was wondering what other bits and pieces I can get done while its in there.

Im thinking Turbo upgrade, Power FC but what are the other main things without going into a re build, as my engine is very healthy,

Oil Pump??

Hose Kit??

Engine Bearings??

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Im looking to get about 300kw at the wheels on a safe tune as its my everyday driver.

Cheers.

Jamie

Engine rebuild, suspension, brakes, exhaust, rings, pistons, pumps, oil catch can, fuel reg, turbo, gate, the list goes on and on.... all depends on how much $$ u wanna spend...

Good luck with the fix :blush:

Ok I have a $6k budget, Im planning on Turbo's and Power FC. I have Brembo's and new after market suspension already on it, looking at getting new slotted rotors as well. Obviously clutch will need upgrading so that will probably go in as well.

You should consider fitting an L31 stroker in, everyone knows they have much more power than an RB26 :blush:

OK....really, I'm not considering cost here but - oil cooler, turbos, front/dump pipes, oil pump, fuel pump + reg (if needed), Power FC and Exhast if needed.

Depending on K's you migth consider doing the bearings\seals and timing belt while the engine is apart.

Update. Head Gasket has shat itself and Im going to do steel head gasket, injectors, rods, turbos, PFC, front pipes, clutch and shoot for anywhere between 300-340AWKW.

Will have it back next week and will post a new thread with Pics for everyone to have a squiz at and tell me what they think.

Cheers.

    • Atessa will work the same as it’s operated by a different ECU. If you want to use one so it can be RWD only I’m not sure that will work and if it is what you want then using a GTST or GTT gearbox would be a cheaper and easier tho v to use. You can just use the AWD gearbox and leave out the shaft that goes from the transfer case to the front diff for full time RWD. Changing the ecu and wiring just so you can use a nistune? There are better options out there that are plug and play to your existing harness connector and they should all work if you are running a manual instead of an auto. 
    • @GTSBoy just to make sure everyone is on the same page: OP is doing the manual conversion on their S1 Stagea
    • hey guys i have a 1996 r33 gts-4 and i assume the last owner has been playing with the horn and it’s not working i’m not too sure why the horn pad feels almost springy and feels like it doesn’t sit right is there anything else i would need to tighten apart from the two bolts on the side and or plug in? here’s a video of what it looks like 67842678749__9E03EA58-0C80-4CDB-83EE-5BE6F2D07AC4.MOV
    • The racelogic is one of those things (along with an Accusump) which blows my mind how they don't have wider adoption. They are simple and have massive, massive, massive effects and if you're even remotely interested in driving a car hard, you'll smack your head for not doing sooner. Disappearing in need now as cars get newer and TC technology in OEM's is obviously very competent, but you'll look back at all the years of high powered RWD cars and be like "wtf why only now"
