The Stock R33 GTR


Recommended Posts

Should send them to Nissan Australia, maybe he might pay for your car's time for marketing stuff, would be cool!
I wouldn't hate that... maybe. [emoji848]

Hey all.

Some time ago, i said i would take some photos of the interior and engine bay... Obviously you should have learned by now that when I say i'll do something, i mean in a few months. 

In any case here are some interior shots of the stock GTR for your viewing pleasure. BTW, the car is slightly dusty, and has some leaves and dirt in it, the photos make it look very bad, but it's not as severe as it looks. I took a lot of images of the stickers on the car, as I suspect there wouldn't be too many left with these stickers intact.  I also grabbed images of the usually suspects for wear and tear in an attempt to convince those who aren't (there's a few out there - mostly facebook experts) that the car has been rolled back or had a changeover cluster and other parts. I'm convinced that isn't the case, unless someone has changed every single component on the car, in which case, it's an amazing rebuild (which it isn't) and would be worth the cash monies I paid anyways. 

Ok i'm losing track of my point... See the images below. :D

Artifical lighting and flash always make it look 10x worse. 

Car looks fully legit to me. Even down to the fact your intake snorkel foam surround is already perishing 0_0 Nissan got it wrong on that material lol 

I struggle with this car because I would want to drive it all the time to enjoy its freshness, but not ever drive it to preserve its freshness... So I would do as you have done and have two :D

I am a bit the same. But I feel like i need a third GTR. Like a high mileage stock one. Maybe in Midnight Purple. Then I have an easy to drive, no problem, already depreciated GTR on my hands that i can run into the ground. Or am i being greedy??? ?

Thanks for showing me this little weapon the other day mate!

shes definitely genuine, a proper time capsule.

No worries. I show them off to everyone who pops round for parts and fixes. So far everyone reacts like you did. We're all the same, kids in candy stores round these cars. :D

Also I'm learning that the KR4 car gets the big wow factor over the LM. Never thought i'd say that, but there you go. ?

The stock GTR is about to be completely stock again. Thank you internet purchases.

On the flip side I'll have another Nismo radiator cap lying around. 20190726_221743.jpgScreenshot_20190726-222125_Drive.jpg

Do they not make these new?

Never even occurred to me. ? 

But I would suspect they probably do now that you've pointed out the flaw in my otherwise brilliant purchase. (In my defense, it popped up in my advertising, I got excited, I bought it).

This is getting old... accidentally tripped over the power lead the other week. Double checked the connection to the car. All good.

Fast forward to last weekend, attempt to start car to move from Garage. Nothing. No life whatsoever. Dead battery assumed. Check battery, cables, power lead, all seem fine. Look at power outlet, the damn plug has pulled out there... uggggh.

Chuck the multi-meter on it. 4.2Volts. Wow...

Cue pulling apart car and retrieving battery for "fixing" with a power supply and 100 odd watts being jammed into it. I'm sure it's just on it's last legs this time.

I too recently flatteend yet another battery.

I think it was fats say he just buys the cheap shit lead acid batteries because they dont care about being flattened and will just charge straight back up and be happy. 

The next battery in the silvia will just be a touch heavier, but much cheaper and more forgiving.

Yeah this is solid thinking in my book. I am surprised by the batteries I have though. The yellow one you saw above died twice and the black battery in the car has died twice as well. 

The only issue I have is the Silver car still has the original battery tray in it, so I have to keep the battery small enough to sit on that. If I didn't know that all these components made the car worth more I'd have chucked them all in the bin. Which i think happened to all the GTRs in the late 90s/early 2000s. Certainly the LM hasn't got these pesky things like trims and carpets and clips... lol

Big GT-R problems... battery tray lol

If I don't blow things out of proportion my life seems boring! ?

Went for a spin in my mates 33R recently, was fun, didn't make me want another one lol 

I think this make's you a rare breed. Normally the cycle is: 

  • Want GTR
  • Buy GTR
  • Mod GTR
  • Hate GTR
  • Sell GTR
  • Profit?
  • Want GTR etc etc.

Profit for me = part of engine build for Silvia. Originally it was going to be the full engine build and box swap etc but the spec list kinda grew....

Driving an M4 really changed my world view. So many cars I haven't experienced. I've had 2 GT-Rs and aside from the power differences they were largely the same.

Will always love them, just don't want another project and I don't think I could stop myself building it if I owned another.

To find one "finished" these days is drug money. There's no way I would spend the kind of money I got for the 34 on another one. Even rough 33s are so far overpriced it's nuts.

I get to live the dream through you and your dollars instead :D

    • So….. I’ve replaced all the coils and made sure I have a spark by fitting a spark plug to one of the new coils and cranking the engine. I’ve ensured I have fuel by removing what I assume is the ‘return to tank’ fuel line and cranking the engine. So I have a spark and fuel and the car still won’t run. Any ideas? may be time to get an auto electrician out! 
    • EFI Solutions aka Taarks have a great kit just for that. Better to have facts/data before making a decision. https://www.efisolutions.com.au/exhaust-pressure-sensor-pulse-damper-emap
    • I'm not sure why you removed the sound deadener???  Don't bother with DIY remedies... this is how you can do it properly. For the lightly stained areas, just stick to a fine grade wet sand paper....and then paint over once the stain is gone. For the worst areas...especially the pitted ones...you just need to sand the rust in the localised spot working down from a heavier grit to medium grit wet sandpaper, which will get most of the rust off. It's just localised rust from the spare wheel touching the boot. Don't go to town on sanding the whole boot...not needed! Try to avoid sanding the seam sealer etc (obviously) After the rust spots are down to bare metal - use a fine brush dipped in "RUST DEOXIDISER"...and carefully apply this to the little rust areas. It's important the chemical you use is DEOXIDISER. After applying that, let it sit for a while and obviously wipe off with prepsol before it dries, and repeat 3-4 times. If you go to a panel shop they will probably be able to sell you some - as the trade products are a shitload stronger than retail products. After deoxidising the rust, scuff the surrounding paint with red scotch brite....& then you are ready to apply etch primer and then paint the matte gray colour on. Mask up the surrounding area using tape & paper..... as you don't need to paint the whole boot, just blend it in and keep the repair as small as possible. Spray can paint or spray gun depending on your level of expertise will be fine. Probably will cost you about $100-$150 in materials.  
    • Interesting. The 30/900 looks right on paper but weather it gives me enough headroom is the question. I dont have a pressure sensor in the exhaust manifold so I won't know if I have a restriction unfortunately.
    • It depends if your current turbine is a restriction or not, if it is go up to the 35, it’s it’s not then stick the 30. Also the g30 turbine wheel will flow more then your gt30 one either way you go the compressor wheel is going walk away from your current turbo
