Stagea 260RS Autech Version

Reluctantly up for sale is our 1998 Nissan Stagea Autech 260RS, boasting a factory fitted RB26DETT, R33 GTR gearbox, Brembo brakes and Autech bodykit. Nissan did not spare a cent on these and it shows! The fit-out and quality is second to none.

We were the first owners of this car in Australia and have owned it for the last 9 years. It has always been garaged. We are only selling it because I have purchased an R32 GTR which must be garaged and the Stagea is too good to park on the driveway. My wife and I have been struggling to part with this car since the GTR arrived.

This thing handles and drives like new and gives a big smile when you hit a twisty road. GTR performance with wagon practicality. It is just at home on the race track as it is on a long distance camping trip. 

It has the following quality modifications: 
•    3.5” Fujitsubo stainless exhaust with Apexi front pipes, 
•    Vipec ECU tuned by Godzilla Motorsport with a mild 13psi of boost
•    Innovate Motorsports wideband O2 sensor
•    DBA slotted brake rotors
•    Whiteline rear swaybar
•    Eclipse stereo with Bluetooth and iPod connectivity. 
•    Autowatch car alarm professionally installed
•    Additionally it came from Japan with Stagea series 2 tail lights and a series 2 Momo steering wheel (same as series 3 R33 GTR) which is quite rare and in great condition

During the past 9 years it has been meticulously looked after. I have full service records for the whole time we have owned it. A year ago I did the second 100,000 km service. The car only had 157,000km on it at the time, but I needed to replace the radiator and decided to do a full service while I was at it. This Stagea will give years of hassle-free driving. In the past year the following maintenance has been done:
•    100,000km service done 5000km ago
•    Brand new Bridgestone RE003 tyres
•    Brand new DBA cross drilled brake rotors with QFM pads
•    Koyo radiator
•    Starter motor
•    Replaced all fluids

It has never seen a racetrack and has been looked after. The fact that it still has the factory clutch is a testament to this.

She currently has 162,000 km on the clock, but is in fantastic condition. The photos speak for them themselves. You won’t find much better.

    • Oof, glad that it seems have gone much better than it could have. I have seen some pretty terrible tow truck handling just as a bystander. Zero fvcks given and no regard for the cars at all. Also broke down with fuel pump issues the other week as the wiring was on its way out. Roadside assistance guy used to have a Skyline and was looking at Stageas on the market. The tow truck driver also used to own a high powered Skyline and was telling stories about that. Apparently too fast to have any issues with being pulled over... Makes all the difference dealing with people who actually know their cars and care.
    • I had quite the scare last night. I was on the highway just toying around with an Audi. Right after an extended WOT pull, I lost all power. I cruised to a stop on the side of the highway and realized I had no fuel pressure. I keyed on/off a few times and could hear both pumps priming but pressure was still non existent. When you need a towing on a highway in Quebec, it's an automatic call to the provincial police. They don't mess around, they'll gladly destroy your car to get it off the highway asap. I pulled my bumper off as quickly as I could as to not have it destroyed getting it onto the truck. I got lucky as the tow driver was a car guy. He entertained the police while I finished up popping my bumper off and sticking it in my window. As we started taking off, the police drove by the tow driver to tell him we couldn't leave with the bumper sticking out the window. He pulled off on the first exit he saw, did a u turn and got right back on the highway in the direction of home lol.  With no leak insight, the only thing I could think of was a torn FPR diaphragm or a popped hose inside my fuel tank. This morning on removal of my Radium twin pump hanger, one pump hose was completely shredded and the other was on the verge of the same fate. Both hoses had swelled to double their size... I have no idea how I ended up not using submersible hose but clearly that's what happened. To make things even worst, Radium supplies submersible hose with the hanger... So either they supplied the wrong hose or I had the wrong hose laying around when I assembled it.  Looking over logs, my fuel pressure dropped to 0 roughly 10 seconds after a WOT pull. I was cruising and I'm confident the motors fine. Had that happened 10 seconds earlier, I'd more then likely be pulling the motor out. New hose arrives tomorrow, I'll put it back together then. 
    • Post 2 in this thread is my C34 with a R34 manual console, you can see it is a tiny bit different but not noticeable, and clips straight in. Only issue is you have to move the g sensor a little with the manual console.
    • Welcome to SAU, they really are more fun manual
    • Any pics of that R34 console conversion?  I've been thinking this would be close, but if you have pics, that's easier than going to bother the local guy with an R34. You won't believe this, but I'm building your twin in Florida!
