Hey all, I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this. I've been a lurker of this forum and a fan of GTR's for a few years now. I've just recently become financially able to afford one. I am not very good with cars in general but I have massed little knowledge over time. I'm based in NSW and there's one in Victoria that I'm potentially up for buying. The seller has uploaded many photos and provided details. I was wondering if I uploaded these photos and details to this post, that you guys could chime in with any thoughts before I make the trek to Victoria. I have read the thread " New To The Skyline Scene?" But I just want to see what you esteemed members think about this import.

Thanks all. VIN number is BNR32-012590.

Also I'd like to use https://japancarhistorycheck.com/ to check the auction history - but what is the best way to verify that the VIN provided by the seller actually matches the car he is selling? I'm aware vin stickers can be forged. Would using that website to check the japanese history help verify the car that's for sale will match the VIN that's provided?

I'd also be mindful that the car has just come from Japan...so potential for rust (or more so than a car that's been here for the last ~15 years or so).

I'd get it inspected if you can by a mechanic/workshop that knows these cars at the very least.

if i was looking for another r32 i would look no further than this one. chances are thats an extremely good condition car. thats alot of coin it should be damn near mint for that price with a perfect frame. i would say if you could get the frame(standard 4 spots on frame where dints usually occur from improper jacking), rust behind all the wheel arcs, open the gas cap see what rust is occuring in there, and a nice photo of the trunk popped with pictures of the perimeter along the waether stripping and under the spare tire where water can accumulate and cause premature rust. cheers chap car does look extremely clean in my eyes. i paid 27k for mine in the same shape as that grey one(maybe better mine had zero rust) in 2019 so not that long ago. i just kept watching as economy was low here, so i dunno about the 85k mate thats steap for a r32 that will be quite slow after you drive it a couple times and want more power.

I’m in Melbourne. There are a few guys that are in the know. JMA Airport West are GTR specialists. To pay him $200 to have a look at it which will take him 10 mins might be worth it.

1200buck hourly rate sounds about right for a gtr

    • Did you also buy your car from Trust Kikaku?
    • Pretty much this ^ We run a 2000 and 2500 Elite in the R32s, they're mounted under the glovebox on an aluminium plate. We attach a piece of angle on the front side to pick up the 2 glovebox hinge bolts and a small 90 deg bracket on the rear which picks up a rear bolt, using 4mm nutserts as captive threads for the ECU fixing. Mounted like this has enough room for the plug and play harness to come out of the ECU, go over the kick panel and screw into your existing factory ECU harness. I've seen the kits that pick up the same points, which cost like $150+, but it only mounts the ECU ! You are better off mounting it on a made up plate as you can also mount your wideband controller to it too as we have done. For reference this is in the white 32: Definitely better off to make your own.  
    • The pressure should drop. Maybe not instantly, but it should. It doesn't just hold the pressure indefinitely when the engine is off and the fuel is not pumping. If it did, there would be no need to prime the fuel system... ever. If the pressure is dropping or being too high (or really, fluctuating) while the engine is running then there's an issue with the FPR. If you have two sets of stock injectors, and two stock FPR's and two fuel rails, I wouldn't be chasing the fuel side of the engine bay at this point for your problem. Personally I'd be re-checking that MAF (is it the same auto/manual/is it clean? did you actively clean it with MAF cleaner?) Alternatively, anything else custom in that circuit? You have spark, but do you know you have spark at the right time?. You've set timing to 15deg, but have you checked it with a timing light? Could it be out? Whats your CAS doing?
    • I had access to spare rail which included the injectors and FPR. That way if the issue was relating to a leaking injector or FPR issue it would be sorted.  However the fuel pressure it still not holding. iv changed the FPR as well and no luck.   note: old fuel rail setup has Since been reverted back We know that there is definitely a fuel pressure leak. fuel leak down test = failed (pressure drops instantly) The question is where is the leak occurring.. possible causes injectors = no leak from any while priming FPR = tried to pitch the short hose on the FPR while pump was priming and the pressure shot up to 100psi but after pumped stopped went back down to 0 In saying that iv tried another FPR with the same result. Either the 2 FPRs I have are faulty or something else is causing the Pressure drop.   Fuel tank lock ring  One other observation is that The lock ring where the fuel pump goes in the boot is split. fuel pressure might be escaping from there.     I’ll replace this first and see if that changes anything.
