Here's an idea, buy a R33 GTS-t OR R34 GT-t, de-rego it and just store it.

Buy a P plater fun, stock car, enjoy it. Then once you're ready, sell and play with the whooshy break oil pump Skyline.

Sounds great but, I'll either be too tempted to take it out or it will be pushed out of the garage by my family at some stage. Although I could buy one 2 years into green ps...

This seems like something that would have been a good option 5 years ago - in today's climate it seems like a really really poor investment.

 

I honestly think unless you have some sentimental attraction towards Skylines - they really aren't that impressive a car. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't trade mine for anything and I have a massive soft spot for any Skylines I see (especially ones that are being tracked) - but if you're going in thinking about resale and how you're going to sell it in a few years, then unless it's a GTR I would stay well away and go for a more modern car.

Ignore rusting Japanese cars from the 90's, nostalgia and dogecoins drove prices up, not worth it unless you're a drug dealer.

I'd get something cheap to insure, get full license then get something with B48/B58 or new 400Z

In my experience, get the car you can’t buy in 5, 10 or 15 years. I’ve had 32s, 180sx, xr8 and sold them all only to realise later they are out of reach due to cost or quality available. I’ve now got 34, got it 3 years ago before prices started going up and I’m slowly getting parts to turbo swap. Will be something I never sell and probably work on for the next 30 years.

    • I 100% agree that another intake setup would be better performing but I like the uniqueness it brings to the build. I am not paying someone to do the fabrication and this has become something I want to figure out. Call me stubborn for being sold a "bolt-on" adapter plate. The waterjet has been down so it was quicker to machine them. I had one of my machinists at work (who is enthusiastic about making car parts) to give me a hand over the weekend. We started with .75" scrap we had kicking around and profiled out the shape.  I transferred over the studs from the balance tube for a test fit. There is a slight interference caused by the distance between the top and bottom studs being off by .75mm. Not a huge deal as the split pins which locate the throttle bodies are on the bottom holes and they fit perfect. I just oversized the top holes on the ITBs to accommodate my stupid error in measurement You can see the difference in the ITB spacing vs the OEM RB20DET runner spacing here. The plan is to fill it with weld on the inside and weld on the outside as well. I can then smooth out the transition.  -Jordie 
    • You could add a larger reservoir to the heat exchanger circuit so can add ice when at the track. Where I was working at the time found adding a watertank/reservoir in boot of blown cars helped massively, less expensive than an interchiller kit but lost spare wheel well. Cars could do back to back runs with more consistant IATs. I fitted an interchiller and 4.9L whipple to a LS at a shop I was at and IATs were never a problem. 
    • Dont forget rotational mass weight saving is 3 to 1 also   But yes theoretically good, strong , light wheels for sure but also ive still buckles "best jap wheels" and sigh The overall combo youre building is strong 💪
    • Yeah, I'm gonna hit him up for some closeup photos of the journals/caps. Its at a decent price, especially since it has all the required parts for a complete cylinder head, minus the passenger rocker cover 🙃 I thought the same regarding the head not having oil. Its a camshaft, not a crankshaft? Surely the forces would be small enough that they couldn't do that much damage...
