R32 GTR V-spec based in NZ

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I’ve been a long term lurker on this site and finally bought a black V-spec R32 GTR, with the only mods being a cat back and headunit. 
I plan to modify the car to increase performance but with mods that can be taken back to factory if I like. 
A lot of questions are likely to be about part choices at the moment so any help with that stuff would be very much appreciated. 6D9E72FC-358C-4FA4-9ED4-03C34BAF5337.thumb.jpeg.cf697b0a2119bddca550eb3c7016e705.jpeg1BCE05BB-0D3F-46A2-A8E4-4655BD8693C6.thumb.jpeg.4e139ab4f5ff9bb0391041370207c580.jpeg

Beautiful ride bro. I have a 93 model and did the same thing with -9’s. At 490 hp with cams, gears on a haltech pnp. Enjoy bro performance is amazing from RB26’s

That’s pretty much the exact combo I plan to do.

What did you end up going with?

Focus on what you want. These forums are great and many lads give great advice. All I’d say is don’t have any regrets in what you do. Do it once and do it right.  I’ve seen to many throw money away by continually upgrading. I’m 43 years old and my 490 hp at the wheels is ample trust me. I wanted something streetable and it will never see a track. Smokes most things in my neighbourhood 🦾

What he said ^. Do what you want. Mine just went downhil very very quickly, its in my profile if you want to read through.

If I could do it all over again, I'd stick with a built 26 with around 4-450awkw.

After speaking with the guy doing the work and the guy tuning it. I’ve decided to go with a 8374. It’s way more than what I thought I would want but it seems a really good option and I can always turn down the boost I guess.

Nice choice!  The best responding RB26 I've ever been in was a stock bottom end one running an EFR8374 - though it DID have V-Cam as well.  Head and shoulders above any other RB26 I've experienced in terms of torque/response, and was also making ~460awkw.   Great option for having a nice road setup with plenty of headroom.

Who is doing the build?

I saw some really good reviews on set ups like that. Hopefully the lack of vcam won’t affect it too much. 
mum almost through reading the EFR v2 thread. There is a lot of info in there. The internal vs external gate is interesting. Internal seems easier and cheaper and some of the people seem to swear by them, but the tuners I’m using think external is better so that’s what I will go for. I’m trying to get my head around the twin or single wastegate for the twin scroll manifold. I can see how in theory twins mean you retain a true twin scroll set up but as far as I can see, as soon as the gate opens then the twin scroll disappears and isn’t needed anyway. The tuners I’m using have said to use one wastegate. 
 

The engine, fitting and custom fabrication is being done by Hi-power and the tuning will be done by NDT developments. Both in Auckland. They were companies recommended to me.

    • looking good mate keep up the good work i like following this thread.  
    • 20220120_204714.mp4     Hey guys, passenger door jammed shut on me, I managed to get the door card off in one piece and have a look in there but can't seem to find the problem. Ive tried using combos of using the key and holding the interior lock open, using both door handles and the central lock button. Ive tried pushing and pulling the door latch and lock rods manually The lock mechanism seems to turn and push the lever when I turn the key and everything looks to be in place. Cant for the life of me find the problem. Any help would be appreciated. If there is a manual way to open the door I haven't found it. Im guessing something inside the latch mechanism has gone bad but how can you get it out with the door jammed shut? 
    • There are literally dozens of aftermarket throttlebodies in DCOE carby format. The RB26 ITBs are so very very close to the DCOE bolt pattern that it is difficult to believe that Nissan came that close and didn't actually just use the DCOE pattern. Then, you can look at just about any EFI motorbike from Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, etc that used single throttles, in whatever size floats your boat. 45mm? 48mm? Larger? They're all out there. Just build manifold and plenum and linkages to suit. As for compression and cams - the larger the cam duration, the more compression you can run. Just sayin'. And as for cost for bottom end.....8500 rpm is well within the limits of the stock bottom end. Especially NA. It won't cost much to make it good for >9000. Just need some light pistons and some moderately strong rods and bolts. On the subject of VCT.....all RB25s have it (except for the very first ones in the R32). The vanilla 25s in the R33 era cars were all VCT. There's almost no difference in the VCT between vanilla and Neo engines. The difference between Neos and vanilla 25s is that the Neos have solid lifters, a different included angle in the valves with a shallow combustion chamber. And in the NAs.....not particularly good flowing ports. I would not write off the power potential of an L series vs an RB25DE though, neo or not. 2.8L & 3L (and larger) L series builds, even running Mikunis, have made really large power. There is nothing wrong with the single cam engines. The twin cams are not inherently a massive leap in power potential.
