R33 Vspec


Recommended Posts

Howdy all.

I am about to become an R33 GT-R owner :wassup: and at this point only have limited knowledge on the cars. I have looked at the car I want to buy - owner says it is a V Spec but it has no decal on the rear. Is there any other way to tell the car is or is not a V Spec.

Thanks

Yeah, as Leewah said, fins on the diff casing, plus you can see the extra pump for the active diff pump gear tucked up on the right of the car behind the rear wheel arch and the line going from it to the diff. There should also be a A-LSD light on the tacho. Those two thing are probably the easiest ones to pick. They have different shocks and sit 10mm lower or something too, but you could never pick that. The attessa computer is different, the attessa-pro, don't know how to pick the difference externally. And apparently a V-spec GTR always has a "W" as part of its Chassis identification tag whereas a normal GTRs have an "O". V-specs also have different brake ducts.

Most of that info came from an article in a HPI mag. Should be good. They all checked out on my V-spec which I got to see for the first time yesterday at the compliance workshop.

Can email the article if you like, too big to post here and if I reduce it, its too hard to read.

    • TCU is enroute, should be here on Monday. Have just paid for a transmission locally, they've got to pull it out of the car and should be with me on Friday. Just getting little bits and pieces I need for wiring. Thinking about using a small bulkhead connector to run the transmission wiring through the tunnel as the trans plug is quite big.  So all going well i should have the box dummy fitted up next weekend and start wiring.
    • sure, just PM me your email....
    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
