R32 Gtr Long Term Love, Now Project

Recommended Posts

Ok first a bit of history

I bought the car in 2003 it came with the usual exhaust and pods and beyond that was pretty much standard, i replaced the fuel pump and had the factory ecu remapped and made a respectable at the time 235kw at the wheels

In 2004 I sold the car and stayed in contact with the new owner, come easter 2007 the owner decided he wanted to part with it and after a check over the deal was done.


Over the next few years it stayed basically mechanically the same but got fitted with a set of r33 brembos and a new set of wheels DSCN0097.jpg

In 2011 the engine finally let go and after dramas with the engine builder I lost interest in the car and it sat outside, untouched for about 3 or so years. Eventually I bought and fitted a stock r33 engine, removed the hicas and fitted another set of wheels BE45199B-21D6-4332-A0D8-DFF69E14B8B2-334

So here we are today and I've finally decided to do a build but won't be anywhere near as big as the previous one was. The goal for this build is to make 373kw (500hp) at the wheels with as close to standard response as possible

Now on to the build

First things first after sitting around for so long, with my little helper I replaced all the oils in the car 38715BAD-0206-4564-8071-EAA643FC9322.jpg

Then took it up to jez for a baseline run so that we know where I'm starting from and know how far I need to go8DDD7264-F675-4601-8890-6964AD4070D8.jpg

So here we are with the baseline and a plan in place that I will reveal as the build continues

I'm going to try and keep the updates weekly in order to stop the thread/build going stale, not everything will be a performance upgrade, there will be some general refreshing and tidying up as well. But there will be photos and information of everything that gets done along the way

Next up have this little collection of parts that need to go in, which includes a nismo twin plate, 1000cc injectors, plug in haltech, -7s and midori dump pipes, F2559FE3-1813-46FB-8DD4-A14D9E4B4BE6.jpg

I can't wait to see the results of this. The only other person who claimed close to this power on these turbos could never back it up.

I think these run out of puff at about 23/24 psi. Is that how much you want to run?

This won't be a do everything in one hit build, it's also not going to be a slap a bunch of crap together and hope for the best. It's going to be a very thought out and have a few things a lot of people either wouldn't do or wouldn't think of

TBH it's very hard to find info on E85 and -7's.

i just said stuff it and we will find out. Tuner thinks 350-360 on E85 and they will run out of puff. Will report back when she is finally fixed though. Can't wait to see what you will do man!

    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
    • So, whilst the Bogan Cruise Ship is GTG, and I had organised some time today to go on the SAU NSW cruise, my best laid plans where kicked in the balls, well, kicked in my right knee to be exact Now, after a bit of arthroscopic "honing" and tibial band lengthening "modifications" , I'm sitting on a couch in a prescription induced drug haze, watching 5hit on the Youtubes and falling in and out of consciousness......good times  
    • Yeah looking back I totally ignored some things I shouldn’t have so I put some blame on myself, I was just overly excited thinking I finally found a latch and somewhat blindly went with it. I did not talk to that user he mentioned directly and I did think it was weird he DM’d me with a direct email contact instead of just replying to this post. The guy did send me pictures of all the supposed latches he has but now I think they were probably just pictures ripped off of previous sales done elsewhere online. Would be cool if someone could look into it , just wanted to bring attention to it cause I don’t want anybody else to get scammed.
