R33 GTR - Daily for 7 years and counting

Recommended Posts

Went over to Japan in January for a belated honeymoon, which we planned around dates for Tokyo Auto Salon. Here's a selection of GT-R related highlights

Wise Square demo car for their replacement headlight lenses. They were very excited to see pictures of their lenses on my car!

February - Stripped down the intake side for a little bit of a tidy up. Removed some hoses/vacuum lines that were no longer being used, repainted the intake manifold, and cleaned up the tired looking wiring at the front of the engine. Put it back together with some HKS metal gaskets

Inspired by the recent trip to Japan, the wife decided it was time to upgrade from the 2 door Polo to "something more practical" 😄

I wasted no time tearing into the Evo. Removed the terribly installed aftermarket alarm and the Mitsubishi Diamond Track system. Installed a new immobiliser, a set of Defi BF gauges, Sony XAV-AX5000 stereo, all neatly integrated into the factory wiring harness (this is a not so neat work in progress photo). Also replaced the worn out gear knob for a Tomei duracon knob

And a couple of small updates for the GTR

A pair of definitely not genuine Tein bonnet struts, but they were $70 and they do the job perfectly well. Only required a tiny bit of modification as they are made to fit an R34

IMG_20190425_115534.thumb.jpg.d1347b1fbd0658178fda6e1b12d6d699.jpg

Also got a HKS Racing Chamber kit, which seems to have completely fixed my turbo shuffle issues

I recently got a powder coating gun so I've been playing around with that. Pretty happy with the results, and much more durable that normal paint. So far I've done the wiper arms, radiator brackets, and the new HKS intake

Is that the HKS twin turbo pipe?

The Y piece and straight pipe on top are HKS, rear is the standard turbo outlet

Intake side stripped down again to replace the stock oil/water heat exchanger with a Ross oil distribution block and Greddy oil filter relocation, all hooked up with black AN hose and fittings. Also powder coated the collector while it was out, and fitted a new engine cover badge
