34Gtr Diffs In A 33Gtr?.


Recommended Posts

one for the ratio guru,s.lol i am contemplating fitting r34gtr diffs in my 33gtr. anyone done it. i have done the maths and keeping the 33 box and std ratio,s it gears it almost identical to the hks 6 speed box, 1-4 speeds at 8k are vertually the same. one the hks 5th is .83 and 6th is .79 i think so no real difference to me..

i did the maths of the two boxes.

hks 6 speed in a 33gtr with 4.11 @ 8000rpm

1st 55mph

2nd 87mph

3rd 120mph

4th 149mph

now 34 diffs in a 33 with std 33 box @ 8000rpm

1st 54mph

2nd 96mph

3rd 134mph

4th 174mph

i run and rb26/30 with 660 lbs of torque @ 5500

done lots of searches but everyone puts a getrag in a 33 or 33 diffs in a 34...

the main reason behind this is to lower revs on the motorway, most trackdays i go to are 300 miles plus round trip.

By lowering the revs, and stretching the ratios you will hurt acceleration. Obviously gear change point also affected, how much hard to say.

I can get over 600km+ to a tank on the freeway with 370rwkw, so i cannot see how you'd need to change diff gearing for economy.

Isnt the 34 diff ratio 3.6:1?

Also iirc the GTS-4 has a longer 5th gear than the others (due to its 4.3:1 diffs), could throw the GTS-4 5th gear in your gtr box and keep the 4.11:1 diffs

i be interested to know if 5th is taller on the gts-4 .. anyone confirm this?.

r31 nismoid..600km wow.

i get 220 miles from a full tank on a motorway journey thats sitting at 90mph with the odd burst to 150 lol

Just drive off boost mate?

I went to Syd & back few months back - 900km or so one way.

Sitting on 120km/h the entire way too, just not jumping onto boost and light accel.

I reckon i could get 700 if i really tried as i got to around 640 and pulled into the servo as i was close to the light coming on for sure.

There is your problem lol

lol. fair piont, trouble is with that damn gt4094r its nearly always on boost.lol light throttle at 3000rpm and above an you have a bar of boost, and i mean light, slightest hill ..lol

I plan to do this on my Stagea. have a 3.545:1 front diff - they are very common as people buy RB26s to put in their GTTs or s14s etc etc and so throw out the front diff and weld up the sump but the rears are not so common. As you say a lot of GTRs swap their 3.545 for the 4.1 but all the examples in my area have been of V-spec ones with the active diff rather than the straight mechanical one. Perhaps you should try to get a drive of an R34 to see if you like the effect first in situations other than on the motorway.

I agree.

I've been messing around with my economy tuning a lot lately, and basically fuel consumption increases exponentially with speed. My light load cruse injector pulse with is about 2.2ms at 60km/h, 2.6-2.7 @ 80-90km/h and around 3ms at 100km/h. I managed about 8.3lt/100km on the last long drive including some exuberant driving. I have tried setting up the ecu map for a higher speed cruse at 120ish but fuel economy goes down hill quickly. From memory 120km/h was about 3.4ms.

Also, engine response under track driving conditions suffers because you end up with a lean spot in the middle of your map at the new higher cruise RPM.

I think that to get away with your idea of taller diff gears, you will need to lower or widen your engines torque range. So more mild cams or vcam, and possibly higher compression (not what you want to hear after a rebuild). If your cam timing could be optimised to make peak torque much lower in the rev range, the engine will also be able to be tuned leaner for the lower RPM.

Just another thought too keeping in mind one of your previous posts, but R34 diff gears would take you in the wrong direction with regard to keeping up with the evo's while accelerating out of the corners.

cheers guys thanks for the input, ref bringing power on earlier, we have the motor apart at the moment for checking, going spend some time dailing the cams in spot on and have also got my rear housing back after being modified, car wont be on the road for a few months yet but i will report back when it is with the findings..lol

you want to have power and economy as well.... leave it in the shed..

cheers guys, i think one of the main issues is the link g4 takes a tps reading for the map, we are going to use the map sensor option and try that.it would make sense, when i exit it a corner on track i will floor it, this then gives 100duty to the ecu and injectors, whereas using a map sensor input to the ecu as the boost builds so does fuelling..thoughts guys?....

I thought it was supposed to be via MAP, unless you are still running teh ITBs where it should then be via TPS with MAP correction.

    • Haha, I’ll just have to do both… I’ll be upgrading the Skoda Kodiaq work car eventually..
    • I'm not sure if this helps or not. I recently upgraded to R34 Vspec2 Brembo's on the S2 Stag. I used this braided kit: https://safebrake.biz/home/292-skyline-gt-r-r34-awd-26tt-brake-upgrade-safebrake-performance-hoses.html Beyond this I got the R33gtr front brake hard lines, that go over axle hub just behind the dust plate and all lined up beautifully.  The braided lines were same length as the stock ones. Needed to buy 2x longer bolts for one of the hard mount points for the braided hoses up the front. Trim rear dust shields so could fit 322mm discs. It's a pretty straight forward job.   ps. the r33gtr hard brake lines have the flare nut so should bolt straight into your callipers.
    • Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has changed their stock front upper /  inner control arm bushes for nolathane and has any advice on doing so? See pic circled in red with the bushes im referring to. Can I do it myself? ie. with an air chisel and a suitable sized/diameter socket on the end. Or is it a hydraulic press job? I've already done the outside bushes, the originals popped of easy with the air chisel as they had a little lip to get some purchase on. Cheers, Pete    
    • Mate, great looking R33!  It's not too late to go European and spend your days talking about how you went from v1.01 to v1.03 of your Stage 1.5 tune and now you can bake off the line holding your chai latte without spillage. 🥲 I feel you're at the point of no return now, brace yourself!  
    • I have a Toyota Estima hybrid AHR20 2013. The diffrential arm bushing need replacing. The OEM differential arm part number is 52380-28050. Please let me know if you know anyone who can supply or supply and install the differential arm bushing. I have asked Febest Auto Parts, Auto-Parts and Auto Plus Parts, without any luck. Thank you in advance for any relevant information.
