New ER34 Owner - Based in Japan

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

A while ago I started a thread asking advice on buying an HR34, where a member here, Kinkstaahwas kind enough to share some good information for my purchase. In the end, a good ER34 came up and I bit the bullet. In hindsight, the HR34 would have probably been a better shout, seeing as basically everything will be swapped in the end anyway.

The new ER34 GTT is a 2 door, AT to MT swap car, which strangely had a 32 transmission (weak) swapped into it. It's in beautiful condition - bar a few scratches - as one of my main criteria for the car was to be as rust-free as possible.

The aim for this build will be to supplant the Z33 I had prior and become a frequent track day toy and also cover general weekend driving in Japan. I'll start a build thread once my first batch of parts comes through. I'm currently sitting on some Volks and Recaros which came out of the Z.

As of now, I'm experiencing an idle/deceleration/temperature problem with the car; thread can be found here if anyone has some insight regarding the problem:

Do you see many Skylines being used in Japan. As normal cars?

Not as much as when i first visited back in 2015 - I was still seeing a fair few grannies and grandpas driving the 20de models about - plus usual tuners. I'll most likely see 1 or 2 if out and about now - usually modded - but they're certainly becoming rare.

Went to a meet the other day and saw a good 10-15 skylines there out of about 150 cars.

nice whip mate,looking forward to seeing more on this car. still having issues with it? 

Cheers pal. Absolutely loving it. I'm accumulating suspension components now and should have it all sorted in the next month. 

Still having issues unfortunately. I've got a few troubleshooting avenues left to tick off then perhaps I'll try and take it to a shop. Luckily it's still very driveable at the moment.
