R34 gtt or r33 gtst

Recommended Posts

Comes down to preference for looks

They are much the same besides 33 being older / likely to have done more km and the NEO engine in the 34

33 probably better for modifying, 34 (slightly) better for reliability

Had both.

34 are better cos two cup holders, they're handy as - that being said I'm an idiot for giving it up for 33 gtr.

Cup holders aside, neo motor is pretty good little motor - people reckon neo head flow more than rb26 head. And VCT too.

Both are magical to drive and I'm sure they're still magical to drive nowadays - damn I want another one.

Just wondering if I can make it a twin turbo NEO engine rebuild

Why would you bother

Waste of time when there's decent single turbos available on market.

And why make things complicated when you can KISS?

I think alot of fellow SAU members would be in the boat of "I've driven both" and can provide their 2c.

It's personal taste more than anything else, yes they both have their differences but I would say in the end it comes down to two things:

1/ Cosmetic preferences - Do you prefer the curves of the R33 or the 'designed with a straight edge' R34?

2/ Resale value- Will the R33 start to claw back some of its value if kept tidy. I would argue that the GTT has now overtaken the r33 as the new jap commonwhore- atleast where I live.

Why not

Because having two turbos doesn't automatically make the car better or faster by any means, just complicates the setup. For a car that was originally single turbo you are better off just upgrading that turbo and ending up with the same result as if you went twin.

I recommend doing some reading on turbochargers and the various setups as it's not only interesting stuff but will help you to understand what works well and what doesn't.

This thread is clearly a trainwreck from the start

The 34 is objectively a superior car in every way. Noone has ever put a R33 RB25 in a R34, plenty of people have put Neos into other things. They're a better motor.

Is this based on empirical observation? I hope not...

My thoughts are always, go and try both. You'll never know which you prefer from asking in this instance. Both are good and bad, have a drive of each and you'll know which you prefer. Cars are subjective and just because I like a car doesn't mean you will.
Have a go, it's more fun and you can then say you've driven both!

I like how the r33 gtst has the battery in the rear and I'm pretty sure it's around 30 - 40kg lighter than the r34 gtt.

R34 better overall imo
