Automatic Gtr ?

Recommended Posts

Hi i was wondering if anyone here knows of, or has seen an automatic GTR?

as i have recently sustained a spinal cord injury and as a result i am unable to drive Manual :-(

I was looking at buying a R34 GTR before my accident but now im questioning weather it is still worth it?

if any one could help me with this, i would be greatly apreciated

where are you located. if your REALLY want to spend the cash and money, alot of Auto Trans joints should be able to do a conversion strong enough to handle..

I know my Trans joint mechanic has built his 33GTR to have a clutch with an automatic shifting box. its pretty frickin sweet. He is able to launch the car, and change gears as quick as the shift kit will allow

RVO Automatics is Dandenong Victoria!

Hi mate,

Sorry to hear of your injuries. However, although not many, there are indeed some pluses of having an automatic GTR.

A mate of mine built his stock GTS4 into a GTR, spent a lot of money his automatic GTR runs through gears really quick and shifts fast...tough too...it's a good mix of luxury and sports.

Let me know how you go.

Maybe an auto from an R34 GTt or C34 Stagea Turbo might be the go. It has tiptronic mode too. But you will need a non-turbo TCU to control the shifting.

Best of my knowledge automatic turbo skylines/stagea have their TCU+ECU in one unit, where as the non-turbo models have the ECU and TCU as separate units.

Failing that you may need to go for a fully aftermarket ECU/TCU combo.

I think there was a guy on these forums by the name SATANIC, he had an RB26/30 coupled to an auto, might be worth a look as a start.

    • 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
