Life after skyline! Can it be done?


Recommended Posts

:bonk:

My skyline has served me well, but it looks like after six years it will be sold by the weekend..........

Im just tossing up what to get now?

I dont think anything is going to fill the void.

The top of the list so far is a

Jeep Wrangler!

But yeh i still have no idea...

any suggestions? i have anywhere from $20k-30k to spend...

i will go back to skylines (r34 gtt probably one day), but right now i cant decide...

am i mad ? :headspin:

the ones with the massive wheels are interesting... especially when they're shiney black with chrome bits and huge wheels...

not this big, but you get the idea :)

Do what I've done for the last 10 years. I always loved my Nissans but I also go snowboarding, mountain biking, fishing, etc. and needed a 4WD. In '93 I introduced myself to the cult world of Suzuki Sierra ownership which enabled me to also hang on to my Skyline at the time. Now I've owned 3 and my bro still has the first one I got, an '83 with Toyota 5K and headers. My current one is a '97 coil sprung that I bought new and traded my Ti on it. Never regret the Suzi, do regret selling the Skyline. A few weeks and I'm back my old position.

By the way, my Suzi has a 2" lift and 235 Kuhmo's and I still haven't found anywhere I can't go.

Yeh mountain biking too...

but the sierra is a bit small, and the wrangler has a 4 litre 6 six cylinder :)

although its a bit of an old design;

4.0L In-line overhead valve 6-cylinder

Fuel System Sequential multipoint Electronic Fuel Injection

Power (kW @ rpm) 130 @ 4,600

Torque (Nm @ rpm) 296 @ 3,500

Compression ratio 8.75:1

Capa have a bolt on supercharger kit for $6000!! :ak47:

    • Clean MAFs, Check O2 sensors are good, Check knock sensors are good. They are quiet conservative on timing and factory knock maps (low Octane) are good. Highway I get 8.8-9.2L/100km in my 370z so must be an issue somewhere. Tuning anything VQ based is expensive due to Uprev licence costs & tuners knowing how to use it. HPtuners can now do a small amount of stuff but not worth the time compared to Uprev
    • Ok, wonder if that is normal??  Even my wife's bulky VQ35 AWD Murano does better than that, usually returns around 9L/100km on the highway. V35 6MT returns around 7.5L/100km and my current Q50 is mid to high 6s.
    • Pre tune it was usually sitting around mid 12L/100km. Post tune it went to around 11L/100km.
    • Found a card in the manuals bag that has the override code for a mongoose brand system. Found the exact one in my car Here. I don’t seem to have the second little key for the immobiliser however.
    • Just found a little connector that it fits in, it tricks the ignition into thinking the key is in for like 30 seconds and I can turn the starter without putting my key in. I can still start the car the usual way using my actual key. Very odd
