R32 Gts+t Daily/street

Recommended Posts

Over two years of ownership I thought I'd make a build thread as i don't have enough procrastination in my life as it is.

up until this car I hadn't owned a car more than 6 months before selling it due to being bored of it or finding something else.

Originally bought this car back in November 2012 as a means for a quick profit. The plan being to fix the little problems, swap the wheels and sell it.

However as with most thing in life it did not go to plan...

This is how it was when i bought it

coilovers with chopped springs

1/2 turbo converted

lenso D1r 18x11.5 +12 with 235/40/18
Horrible interior missing parts.

lensoboth_zps38b51943.jpg

First thing to go was the enormous wheels which just were not to my taste and did not suit the car in my opinion. in the mean time i put the lenso on my trike haha

IMG_0062_zps2ba980d1.jpg

Bought some old school work wheels for $70 to roll on while I sold the lensos and bought another set. also put some stock struts with lowered springs in.

IMG_0068_zps4ae40b61.jpg

Swapped the lensos for a few sets of wheels and cash my way. Included in the swapped sets was a set of R32 GTR rims

IMG_0071_zps0975bede.jpg

Due to the excessive guard rolling that had been required to “fit” the 18’s and the ill-fitting +30mm vented fiberglass guards the gtr wheels sat a fair way inside. which is kinda funny on 4 door

IMG_0088_zpsea8bf86a.jpg

here is where i will leave it for the first post and will steadily update to present day over the next weeks

2013

I decided the car was much too quiet and bought a set of drift pipes for it.

IMG_0327_zpse1458c06.jpg

This hung very low and came up underneath the fuel tank. Buuut sounded the business.

Picked up a front lip from a type S R32 and tested it on my Type M bar. It “fit” bar the gap in the middle.

IMG_0126_zpsb82a2cda.jpg

There is a point in which having a front lip is not practical. I found that point…

IMG_0129_zpsf391bfcd.jpg

As I wanted to start modding it and getting it to run right I went and bought used universal FMIC kit. It was fitted to an RB20det R31 so I figured it would fit.

IMG_0286_zps9b26038a.jpg

IMG_0290_zps08d11175.jpg

IMG_0297_zps49a8931e.jpg

I found out why it was running so terrible. The motor had stock RB20DE injectors and ECU with a turbo bolted. Basically as soon as it hit 3psi of boost it would pull timing and drop in to limp mode. So I sourced a set of RB20DET injectors + ‘tuned’ ecu from a cefiro

not sure if anybody cares but im going to keep going with this. :wave:

I got stuck three wheeling and thought the only really solution is a 2way Nismo LSD. while fititng it inoticed my rear sway bar was missing entirely and fitted up a GTR one.

BOY did that make a difference! open diff +no sway bar -> tight 2 way and GTR sway bar.

some spacers where bought to fill out the guards.

I found a Type M 2 door interior for a price that was to good to pass. fitted the seats, dash center console and sold the rest. while i was at it i replaced all the speakers and ran fresh wiring.

S13 bootlip (Origin?)

IMG_2294_zps00ee4ff4.jpg


New exhaust. An old AM performance build that solomon had on his 32 years back. this exhaust is a bit of a broad minded person and has been on many R32's

centre varex (cut and shut for ground cleance) stainless 3" then out to Ti tips

Cracked headlight so bought a pair of projectors and blacked them out and installed some jaycar HIDs

Also fitted some orange indicators while i was at it.

Blew up rb20 turbo and figured that the one thing my untuned NA motor needed was a bigger turbo. so i found an RB25 neo (OP6) and fitted that up. Around the same time i also installed a Front Facing Plenum.

Yes it looks horrible and messy here. Fear not as I cleaned it up down the track but that how it sat for a while.

As awesome as it was having cheap HID's in factory projectors not designed for them. the light output was atrocious and it had some seriously bad defractions going on.

I upgraded the projectors to (morimoto mini) Bi-Xenons from Loudz Creations and I also fitted some “demon eyes” for added wank factor.

Finished product:

920019_10152791850379896_863760709171190

Loose guide: (if anyone is more interested feel free to contact me with any questions)

i picked up another pair of factory projector headlights so my car did no ahve to be off the road for any length of time.

200_zps519bdd48.jpg

remove glass lens. i used a heatgun as death was not worth using the oven.

201_zps9e11e502.jpg

unscrew and pop out shroud

202_zpsd67fb049.jpg

side by side shot of the factory and the new ones. they are smaller but specifically designed for HID's (curvature for focus etc). note the clearer glass

204_zps14141421.jpg

205_zps42383797.jpg

clearly they are not going to just bolt in. i cut the bracket off the factory ones so that i could retain the factory adjustments

208_zps8bb856c0.jpg

209_zps623b7eb9.jpg

i digged the blacked outlook for my car so i did the same again. (light sand, plastic adhesion primer, high temp satin black). test fitted new projector in hole.

217_zps1bfe00c5.jpg

"Demon eyes"

dissassembled the new projectors and stuck some cree LEDs behind in a ring pointing inwards. sequred with high temp copper silicon (gets hot when HIDS running)

218_zps9d610ec5.jpg

re assembled lights: to attach the projector to the OEM bracket i sued some electrical standoffs and some simple brackets bad from scrap alloy

Headlights look awesome.

How much power did you make with the op6?

Cheers mate. Light output is phenomenal as well.

Pre tune I made about 175kw. Post tune I made 206kw.

I still have a ways of updates to go until I'm up to current day

Dropped into Jaustech for a checkup and they told me that my rotors where below minimum thickness and one was infact warped!

I figured if i ahve to replace them i might aswell upgrade. I decided on going to 324mm (R33 Brembo size) rotors and a caliper adapter to run the 4 pots. this plan also means i can drop in the R33 Bremo's down the line if i desire.

As much as i liked the GTR wheels, 16" was not going to be able to clear the new brake setup so i began the hunt for a new set of wheels.

What i decided on was a set of Advan AVS model T7's in a 17x9 +22 all around. i picked these up in...well used...condition from Stewy.

Basically all of the wheels were like this to some extent.

268_zps9e3e2bcf.jpg

269_zps8712675f.jpg

fixed and primed

299_zps34e3ec77.jpg

colour coat. actually really digged the matte look and almost left it there.

first coat of clear

315_zps0828a2a6.jpg

clear done

317_zpsb82bdd1f.jpg

close up shot. hard to see here but tis gunmetal with slight blue pearl. finish isnt perfect but i was more than happy with them

316_zps86021761.jpg.

fitted up some scrappies to get me rolling

331_zps0b7318d3.jpg

This depleted my money for a while so brakes had to wait.

Brake upgrade time.

finally had to justify changing to 17" rims and follow through with the brakes.

stocks

IMG_3353_zps21cbfb06.jpg

516_zps8fea3018.jpg

upgrade goodies. decided on some DBA T3 "club Spec" rotors and bendix ultimate pads(good balance between performance noise and dust on a daily driven car in my opinion)

470_zpsum0fbfsy.jpg

rotor comparison

IMG_3360_zps21362675.jpg

cleaned up and painted rotors I used metalcast paint. this took forever due to the 25 + years of brake dust!

524_zps1f3b1148.jpg

gently sanded back to basecoat to make the nissan logo pop a bit more.

529_zpsbff997c7.jpg

fitted up with caliper adapter. as you can see not all of the rotor surface is used but the extra leverage it gets and the better cooling made a noticable difference.

As much as I always stood by my Type M bar and said that GTR front bar's only belong on GTR's a good deal came up and it is hard to deny that the GTR bar just looks better.

668_zps7f5163f7.jpg

The bar had some damage and the bar was Bayside Blue (which my car was not).

706_zpsb1d57ef6.jpg

However it matched close enough and look great in my opinion.

Time for my very first trackday.

I remember the first thing my dad said when i told him my intentions " alright, but be prepared to bring it back on a trailer."

I signed up for Drift Techniques out at Tailem Bend.

skidrims fitted. fluro represent!

not much ground clearance with the skidrims on...

started too get it

10718051_669684809767051_1777802758_o_zp

as dad predicted on the trailer to take it home. thankfully i had some awesome mates with even worse luck willing to take my car back for me.
Managed to do some gearbox damage

10329191_10152953945879896_6825765926296

852_zps7g1yiv9g.jpg

Here is what came out of the sump plug when i dropped the gearbox oil. all in all i dont regret the day and the damage even though my day was over my 11am. I learnt a bit and the damnage just meant an excuse for an upgrade...
