Gtr Engine Bay Colours

Recommended Posts

I tried a search, but couldn't get an answer. I've been looking for a GTR for a few months, either 32 or 33. I'm having trouble getting my head around the various engine bay colours vs exterior colour I've seen out there. Is there any rhyme or reason regarding colours? A white bay seems pretty common, regardless of exterior colour, and none of these seem to have been resprayed on the exterior. I've also seen several that seem to have a slightly darker colour in the bay eg a darker maroon bay in a slightly lighter maroon exterior.

Any light shed on this would be appreciated...

The engine bay should be basically the same colour as the exterior.

There is an Australian delivered R32 for sale at the moment and it looked like it had a silver or white engine back with a black exterior.

When I looked at the paint code on the car it was silver!

Soooooo.................... Regardless of what you see they should be matching. Allow for the fact that they don't have clear nor are they polished.

That's why they look different. My exterior is Red Wine but the engine bay almost looks brown.

Hope that helps.......

Sorry to bring back a dead thread, I have a white 32 GTR, with a brown bay. Did a search on FAST came up saying paint code 326, which is crystal white.

Anyone know what's going on in there? Haha has me stumped.

Yeah, as stated above, engine bay colour doesn't necessarily match the car exterior colour. I have a silver R32 GTR, but the engine bay colour is a light, dull grey, nothing like the car's silver exterior.

    • 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
