Skyline R33 Gt-S


Recommended Posts

I am currently on my L's and getting close to my P's, i'm looking at getting a Skyline R33 for my car, i'm in Queensland and the law says no turbo vehicles, so far i haven't found a non-turbo R33 for sale but i was wondering if the car comes with auto as standard if that would be ok to drive and if not then would anyone know a non turbo version for sale, preferably white and under 100km's.

Thanks in advance

yes there are auto versions..

clearly you haven't looked at carsales as there is 8 for sale at the moment..


apart from the colour it fits your needs


whilst skylines are great fun i would take the time to do some reading on this site.. mainly the FAQ's and technical sections as this will give you an idea of common problems etc.. I would suggest getting a cheap 4 cylinder daily until you are off your P plates. r32's and r33's are getting quite old and can be a headache if the car isn't in good condition.. If money isn't a problem then go for gold.. Just don't be like most P platers in auto non turbo skylines who think they are boy racers..

don't worry about the kms on the clock, especially an auto non turbo. the kms on the clock are often false. and yes an auto skyline is fine to drive. by no means fast, but fine to drive.

I agree with defari, buy a nice economical 2 cylinder and put the money you save on fuel, rego and insurance away. then when you come off your P's you have all that money to get ur GTS-T and put some mods on it. also you dont want the cop attention, especially when ur on ur P's

    • medium amateur ?? VCT rather have than not and they NEO heads anyway... agree shouldnt be down there in revs agree but one  does stuff up at times and does help 😁
    • Sorry this is late, but I just changed mine on the GTT. They are 6.5T  I tried T5 at the start, they don't fit nicely and is all loosely goosey. T6.5 from eBay and it works fine
    • >complete amateur >1:24 at Winton laggy massive HP RWD R32 I dunno about the first part I would argue this use case probably doesn't need VCT, won't be in the rev range that it would ever be active!
    • Last weekend I changed out the noisy bearing in the rear. It went fine except the axle was super stuck in the hub. I eventually got it all swapped out over two days. The car is so much quieter but the ABS light came on. I freaked out thinking I'd put the bearing in backwards or used one without the integrated magnet for the speed sensor (lower E90's use a ring attached to the axle rather than built into the bearing). I checked the 2nd bearing I got, seems I got it right (black side in first). I bought a new Bosch speed sensor from eBay which arrived today, 10 mins to fit and cleared codes. No more ABS light.  My gut says I probably damaged it when pressing the bearings in and out as it kinda hangs in a bad spot - i should have removed it. Anyway, whatever, its quiet and fixed. I think the front bearings are ready for changing now, I can hear very slight noise that would have been masked by the dead rear one. Front ones are bolt in thankfully. Also bought the Nolathane rear subframe bushes and a Whiteline 16mm rear sway bar (OE is 13mm). I had this bar on my 330i but cbf'd removing it so just got another. The subframe needs to be lowered to fit the bar so i'll do bushes and bar at the same time. I was really temped to get solid aluminium bushes but they are really expensive and the whole subframe has to come out, not just be dropped which is not something I'm keen to do.
