My First Skyline

Recommended Posts

hey guys i am basiclly a first time writer but long time onliner if you get my flow.....

im in the market for a r32gtr and tonite i went and had a look at one, now ive been searching for a while and the one that i took a look at is fairly standard and looks pritty legite.......

what do u guys think????? "i took my skyline manual with me and it pritty well checks off every thing in the list?


one thing, he claimed it makes 239 kws at the rears with the 4wd disingaged cause of the fact he was on a two wheel dyno but is still runing standard boost wat do u think modds are as followed on the link

also the frount mount didnt look standard

cheers in advance

I think he's pulling himself with 238kw with very little power mods. Well, unless he can prove it.

Yeah +1.

Ask him for a Dyno sheet print out.

Seller says:

"Engine is mechanically sound and exterior is in great condition. Very clean and neat car that gets driven a maximum of twice a week.


Stainless steel 3" Greddy catback exhaust,

Exceedy heavy duty clutch,

Pod filters,

Alpine stereo speakers

7" Motorised LCD DVD/VCD/TV Player (USB and SD card compatible),

Remapped ECU

Turbo Timer.

All resonable offers will be considered"

Car looks pretty stock to me... Cat back exhaust, twin pod filters and a Remapped ECU = 239 Rear Wheel kW's..?

Don't think so.

Ask him what has he done to the ECU, stock or aftermarket?

Remapping an ECU means fine tuning the the Unit to get better performance out of your car by altering the Air/Fuel Ratios, settings...

In doing so to try and increase power and torque and making the car more responsive down low, mid range or top end and try to cancel out any flat spots in the power and torque curves.

After doing so I still can't see how he got 239 rw kW's unless having Dyno sheet to prove.

cheers 00skyline00 ,

thats what i thought took it for a test drive and it felt pritty quick compared to stockers that ive been in but like you said i dont think its possible either,

great responsiveness i must say?

gonna call for a dyno sheet for proof.

wopps didnt relise i was loged in to my lost acount that i didnt think was there any more,

as above

all comments are welcome>?

Yeah no worries!

But still take another look into the car, if it runs well and a tad quicker then standard, in a good condition...

Do a bit more research, ask a few more questions and even take you mechanic down with you next time to see the car.

The seller is negotiable on price so take a stab at it... He wants $18,499, then see if he will take anything in the $16K range.

If not then you both meet each other half way on the price, say $17,500 or whatever...

If he won't lower the price, meaning he still thinks his car has some good mods and can make 239kW's. (Trying to get some money back on the "Mods" he has done")

If he is willing to lower it then you know it's pretty much stock...

My point of view anyway and this is all in speculation, cuz I am not standing in front of the car and just judging from the Carsales add.

    • New R34 owned here (from the US) and found a gem, '98 GTT with ~6k miles, super clean & completely stock. When shifting there's no grinding, shifts smooth, etc. The concern I have are 2 things: 1) Only in 2nd and 3rd... when maintaining a slower speed (in traffic as an example) as I let off/on the gas, the shifter will slightly move and vibrate. If the clutch is engaged, none of this happens. It's not bad, but enough to feel like something isn't necessarily right. 2) This mainly happen in 4th or 5th... the shifter slightly bounces up and down, almost like it's riding on unbalanced tires (and I do think the tires are unbalanced as I get a little of that bounce feel at higher speeds, which is maybe why it only happens in 4th/5th). Lastly, and sorry for this noob question but I want to work on this car myself, can someone teach me some on these manual transmissions? Like servicing them, best products to use, etc.; would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
    • Coilovers aren't even the first step. Bushes, subframe position and alignment, HICAS elimination, adjustable upper arms and traction arms in order to dial out understeer. All these things need/deserve attention first. ARBs (There's no such thing as a swaybar. Please, everybody, stop calling them that) are useful if you want to limit spring stiffness. Otherwise you can control body roll with springs. Spring and damper rates are a function of road surface, speed and usage. There is no solution that works for all cases.
    • Define "nothing". Is the starter spinning but not the engine? Engine turning but not firing? If the engine is turning but not firing, then you are missing either fuel or spark. You need to find whichever has gone missing.
    • Shitbox Tiguan updates, got the APR OTS tune put back on (no charge for it to be removed/added back), didn't want to just come in just for that (not a fan of wasting people's time for nothing) so I purchased an APR dog bone insert. The boys at German Performance Garage said they would fit it for free too since they had 1x hoist free. Now that's service you don't normally get from most workshops. Anyhow, tune back on, snow grate pulled out, dog bone insert back in and not going to lie, a few smiles when I nailed it around the industrial area heading back onto the M7. Amayama also said 1 to 2.5 month wait for the RB25DE heater hose, yeah why not, car has been off the road for nearly 3, what's a other 2.5?
    • Hmm I'm going to approach this from the other side... What is the car doing that you don't like or what would you like the car to do that is currently isn't doing (handling wise that is)
