BNR34 Series 2 Engine Bay Colour


Recommended Posts

Hey All,

After a bit of information to help me with my GTR searches. I am looking at a R34 in bayside blue (TV2) with a VIN that is listed on GTR-registry as a series 2 base model gtr (production year 2000). The car does have the series 2 interior however the engine bay is not body colour, it is a darker colour.

Could anyone else on this forum who has a series 2 in bayside confirm their engine colour as being bayside blue or a darker blue. Just confused as I have up until this point believed that only the series 1 had the darker engine bays (depending on body colour) and series 2 had body colour engine bays.

The car I am looking at is appears to be clean and has records but this is bugging me. Also is there anything else I could look towards which would be a give away?

Thanks!

Series1 Bayside Blue and Midnight Purple cars had black engine bays. Series 2 was body colour. 

Other colours were body colour though, my white BNR34 Vspec came with a white engine bay. Although the paint is matt and dull.

Series 1 will have blue build plate, Series 2 will have silver build plate, unless it's a Nur of course.

    • I've got a Nexus for one of my other cars and I was surprised how simple it is to use and seems like a good quality bit of gear. The tech support guys are good to chat with too.
    • My point is more so focused on the division between cylinders 1 to 3 vs 4 to 6. Any low mount "bolt on" aftermarket manifold utilises an open T3 collector which has crap all scavenging effects. Sure it might allow you to slap in more timing up top to make a little more but you'll lose all the down low performance. Even Tao from @hyper-gear has experienced the same when modifying the stock manifold. He has experienced added lag by cutting out the divider inside vs. leaving it alone. Twin scroll works, even if the effort is focused primarily on the manifold and an open scroll turbine housing. Please don't confuse me with a V8 NA or Americans that thinks you need back pressure in a 4 stroke motor.
    • I bought mine from Concept Z https://conceptzperformance.com/hks-stainless-steel-catback-exhaust-system-full-dual-muffler-infiniti-q60-coupe-17-cv37-awd-rwd-31014-kn001_p_32626.php Put it on myself. Very easy jack stands. But if i was going to do it again i would get something like this   https://conceptzperformance.com/nissan-infiniti-infiniti-sport-exhaust-kit-axle-back-exhaust-system-infiniti-q60-17-coupe-cv37-b0100-q60st_p_30289.php Or just straight pipe it the whole way. I drove the car without an exhaust for shits and giggle when i was swapping it and it's not very loud at all. 
    • Ignore the monster truck ride hide, I messed up on the offsets and widths and ended up ditching them a few weeks later when my coilovers didnt fit
    • I always drive with the tire pressure gauges showing the PSI because I'm paranoid about getting a flat tire and not knowing then keep driving and tear it apart. No amount of goo is going to fix a shredded tire. My Q60 has the goo and the V36 had the goo too. Never used it but I have used the pump to pump up the tire to get home. Then I fixed it with a plug. Wasn't keen on the goo.
