Tips/advice for 1993 r33 n/a gts series 2

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, so I recently purchased a 1993 R33 Skyline GTS series 2, they are n/a and I’m having lots of trouble finding threads and stuff on just information for them.

I’m currently working on getting it roadworthy and don’t have much to go, I plan on making it my daily but I also want to do some cool things to it but I know close to nothing about cars. In the future I hope to do a manual and turbo conversion but that won’t be for a few years and by then I could possibly just buy a gtst haha. 
 

But any information or help you guys could give would be awesome, I don’t even know exactly what model it is because there is so many from what I can tell on the Internet but as far as I can tell it is an ER33 series 2 gts n/a

again thanks for any replies <3

Welcome to the forums! It will help if you add location to your profile as different parts/specialists are available in different places.

If you want to know more about the factory spec of your car, Nissan's parts software FAST has the original details of how it left the factory but we will need the japaneses VIN from the firewall, it will be something like ER33-xxxxxx.

You said you need to get the car roadwrothy, what is wrong that needs to be addressed?

And, in most cases turbo and manual conversions don't make financial sense, although that could be changing as the price of many of these cars are going up, not down, these days....

Just as a FYI, Series 2 came out 1996 onwards. 1995 had a kind of parts bin approach which everyone called Series 1.5.

The front headlights on your car are Series 1, being a 1993 I would safely say it's a Series 1 :)

Don't bother doing a turbo conversion, just do an engine swap with something more fun when the time comes.

Thanks man! Okay no worries I’ll add that into my profile but yeah I’m located in Victoria near Melbourne.

Is FAST like some sort of website that they have or something? I’ll have to sus that out but the VIN thingy you asked for is ER33-005985.

So with the roadworthy, I’ve got to pull the fuel tank out and clean it out because it apparently has fuel that has been sitting there for a while and turned into some sort of slime or something stuck to the bottom of it. I’ve gotta chuck a RHF park light in, either replace or fix a puncture on my RHR wheel. Need to replace front caster bar bushes. And another thing that I have no idea how to fix is the gearshift indicator is sticking, it shows up fine on the dash but next to the shifter if I move it down it stays on the one above (Say if I had it in reverse and pulled it down without pushing the button in, it will go into neutral but not show that it’s in neutral. And if I push down the button on the shifter it will go into reverse but show that it’s in neutral.) the glue is torn in the boot seal, and I need to fix a rust hole in the boot floor.

I recently had it in the auto elec too and found that the alternator was stuffed, so I’ve had a brand new one put in and now the battery side of things is all good.

And yeah that’s what I’ve been thinking, currently it’s definitely not worth it but things could change in a few years time and I definitely don’t plan on doing it any time soon hahaha.

Ahh okay, it’s been really hard for me to find out for sure what the exact model is but you’ve cleared that up for me now, cheers a bunch man!

And yeah actually that sounds like a much better idea, will definitely keep that in mind going into the future!

FAST is some old windows software by Nissan, and I think there are some website alternatives these days but I'm stuck in the past.

ER33-005985 comes up as:

But the simple way is just go to the R33 GTS page at GTRRegistry and all the details same as FAST are there.

    • I also think it would be wrong to say that RB's are weak or inherently flawed. Their oil control issues and block strength aren't a design flaw, they did exactly what they were designed to do when being used for what they were designed to do. Really it's the fact that they are quite a solid base that we are discovering their limits, because people are trying to push them to 600-700-800+ horsepower. Go and try that with a Toyota 2ZZ, the crank starts walking around at 500hp and you can't stop it. There's plenty of motors that legitimately can't handle it at all, the RBs sort of can but you're asking a lot of them.   At the end of the day, there's just no guarantees either way. You might build a 600hp engine and have it last 15 years, it might last 2 months - there's no way to guarantee it. So you're playing an odds game, you're rolling the dice. And if you aren't comfortable rolling the dice with the amount of money that it costs to play the game, then the best advice anyone can give is to not do it. Don't go to the casino and put all your money on Red if it will hurt too much when you land on Black.   Just ask Laine@bcozican, he's the sort of man that stands with his back to the table and barely even checks what colour the last throw landed on before rolling again 🤣🤣🤣❤
