Looking At A R34 Gtr


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, long time read first time poster. So I have finally decided to bite the bullet and get my dream car now that I am finally able to. I'm looking at getting an R34 GTR. I have read through the "New to the skyline scene" FAQ and its answered most of my questions regarding looking into a second hand and imported Skyline.

I just have a couple extra questions I am sure some of you can give me some really good answers on, so here goes:

Being an imported car and not officially supported in Australia whats the best way to go about servicing a R34 GTR?

I am of this writing 29 years old, immigrated here from South Africa with no crash records or black marks against my name in regards to insurance, yet finding insurance for this car is anything but easy. Can you guys perhaps point me in the right direction?

Besides the obvious what should I be looking at when browsing for a GTR, is there anything GTR specific I should be looking at?

Thank you in advance for you advice and guidance.

servicing is as simply as finding a good reputable mechanic in your area or close to it that has experience in maintaing and servicing skylines. Just ask here on the forums and im sure some one will point you in the right direction for your local area.

as for insurance have a look at just car insurance, have insured me and my gtr since i was 21

I found Shannons to be substantially cheaper for my 34 GTR and additionally many people I know have had good experiences when it comes to claim time.

As for basic servicing, they don't need anything particularly special that any competent mechanic, armed with the correct knowledge, cannot do.

    • 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
