Canada 1993 gtr ready for action

Recommended Posts

Couple carbon pieces installed before we start the big budget build this week. Made some room on the pool table. I really was sceptical about changing the look of it but I actually really like it! Replica jun eBay lip and trunk bonnet fit pretty good👍

If anyone knows where I can get a carbon side skirt extension send me a link👍 I’m looking for the full length not just the rear skirt pod.

I really wanted to try one of these manifolds and not spend 3k on a hyper tune. I must say I’m very happy with the quality, 1200 to my door with fuel rail and throttle👍 Thanks np boosted for the hook up.  Also redid the rega’s with some sand paper and some spray bomb action.  About 10 hours sanding and 1 hour painting and they look pretty good for 50 bucks. Cheers mates single build starting right away just waiting for the manifold

The rivets seem to fit much tighter the higher you get your leg up in the air. Very important if you can get both legs up in the air even better. Carbon exhaust shield to cover up the bunged burnt area from my exhaust

One last pull on the twins before we rip her apart and add another couple hundred horse power. this is as roughly 500+whp 22psi. pulling it to about 7800...listen to the 4" exhaust just cracking the earth! almost makes me sad to go single but i think im done with the twins. i hope my 6466 has same spool as my -5's.

Your 6466 will come on way faster then the -5s, I went from -5s to a 6466 .84ts and it’s all in at least 500rpm earlier

i may have went overkill on the exhaust side but ill try it and swap it out later if no good. i went with a 1.15 a/r...

Will be keen to see how it goes, I’m looking at swapping mine to a 1.0 when I put the 2.8 in it, so looking forward to comparing them

hey mate i know for a fact your knowledge is heaps and above mine. im going to run 30 psi with a prp brace motor fully built, is currently being machined, maybe grout fill half. not a budget guy but I like to keep things very simple if I can. i have always ran a completely stock head and only replaced valve guides when motor is apart. i dont plan on revving it past 8 thousand ever so do you reccommend any other head work i should do other than the guides? maybe double valve springs from supertech with some mild ass cams. again i dont two step the car, i don't over rev it, occasionally drag it once in a while thats it. 8 litre sump with oil cooler head restrictor and spool gears in a n1 pump

Will cut for parts! I’ve owned my small little company busybeavertreeservices.ca since hischool, Sometimes you gotta black right out to pay for parts! Jobs like these are gold for getting builds done, this is my other passion than my family and my cars. The trees keep a guy well and out of trouble!

Definitely will need the valve spring as mine floated way before what you’re chasing, some drop in cams will help up high but take away from from down low which you can fix by raising compression. 
 

big sump and stronger oil pump are a must, you’d be surprised how bad the factory sump is even with an aftermarket baffle installed

yup n1 pump will be in the bin i screwed that up.....gunna go with a nitto pump and a 1.3 head restrictor. thanks for help cheers mate. i ordered a complete dual valve spring supertech kit with hks 264 9.1(8.7) camshafts last night....will the double valve springs be to much for my setup and screw anything else up? i will be shimming the camshafts too if needed obviously. i couldn't find a kit with the single valve spring so said fak it and ordered the double.

i bought this kit today. i didn't like the idea of using different companies for different parts so sad fak it this is it...best kit i could find with everything i wanted.  ive had enough of forum research and clicking away at this computer for 7 days straight with no sleep. ben (BK) has been a great help through this and i ended up getting some kelford cams as well. mechanic requested. cheers mates this build will be nuts im wpc treating the whole thing and will be able to give some real good data on it once we run it. and thanks for your help mate. this has been a huge learning curve im finding out how much of a newb i really am ha. trying tho, working hard, putting in th eresearch, paying for parts,talking to lots of mates, pumping tree jobs out, living low. cheers chap thanks again your a good mate.

    • Heard back from Neat Gearboxes today to say they've got the gearbox internals back from hardness testing and they were all "exactly where they need to be" which is good news.  He said formerly Speedtek stuff had been overly hardened (brittle) so they must have improved on that process of late. Sam is peening and polishing it all as we speak before re-assembly within the next week or so. Hopefully they can send me some photos as otherwise it will be the only part on the car I haven't seen the inside of!  Should look pretty sexy after the peen/polish job on the gears. I'm losing my licence soon (long frustrating story but ultimately from constantly speeding but in the end not why I lost my licence...) so I'll probably be doing less camping and motorbike riding and might be able to actually get some work done on the Skyline.  Once the gearbox is sitting on the floor of the shed hopefully that is enough to make me pull my finger out and finish off this damn, epicly long fiasco!! Finally then I will discover if I still have it in my heart to keep it or whether I'm so over it I can't bear to look at it anymore!  It would be bittersweet if I did sell it.  Obviously the cash would be handy and take 10 years off the home loan but I don't know if I could ever forgive myself for giving up an amazing car.  I still kick myself from time to time about getting rid of my old Datto Ute but this would be on a whole different level.  The Datto was totally the wrong vehicle for me but I still loved it! I'll post up some photos of  the box bits if anything comes back.
    • Matchbot will tell you there is no way an 8374 should be on a 3.0L RB.    That said, I ran mine happily for some years at sub 120krpm making 650-700hp at hubs and spinning to 7000-7500rpm on both 3.0 and now Nitto 3.2.  Intake temps were ok - but it didn't want to make any more power.  It has finally let go just two weekends ago.    We had recently added launch control which may or may not have contributed (or at least shortened its life).     Everything on Matchbot says its should be overspeeding, but I've got logs to show it wasn't (unless there is an issue with what/how we are reading) - so I am not sure how this correlates to Matchbot..  perhaps the default VE figures are different enough to affect it?   I've also run an 8474 on same engine (3.2L, both 1.05 rear) and it definitely feels laggier than the 8374.  On a dyno plot its only about 200rpm later coming on, but in practice, on a rally sprint coming off 2nd gear corners, you notice the difference.  Also between gear transient response is dulled a bit. 8474 makes about 50hp at the hubs more on same boost (750hp at 23-26psi) , temps post turbo (pre intercooler) are only 10 degree cooler. And post cooler can't see a difference.  Definitely when in the mid-range revs and up you feel the extra legs it has. So!  for me, on a 3.0-3.2L  I'd be going 8474 and altering gearing to suit what you're doing,  and keep it a bit further up the rev range.    
    • So we have also had the front off. So from jacking it up to engine out is an hour, slinging it back in is about hour and a half so pretty happy with that for at the racetrack kinda setup
    • My 8374 is at 127krpm at 490wkw (650whp) so it has nothing left. You'll need an 8474.
    • I don't think there is even a choice here. The 8474 should out perform the 8374 with close to identical response.
