My BNR34 build journey

Recommended Posts

Hi guys and gals,

I have posted on the forum before regarding the value of R34’s before but decided to start a new thread with my journey and plans for my dream car.

I am currently living in Japan and will post about great driving roads and road trips here as well so some of you who wish to travel have an idea about where to go etc.

I purchased and received my car near Christmas 2019 and so far doing minor interior and exterior upgrades.

It’s a 99 V-Spec in bayside blue with 33k genuine km’s and the Engine is a S1 from Omori factory giving it a nice street feel.
I wanted to leave a record of the things I’ve done to my ride and will update from time to time with pics.

So far I’ve done interior upgrades such as LED’ing most interior lighting such as the aircon console and room lights, V-Spec2 pedals, Nismo seat covers,

on the exterior, it’s getting the Nismo Z-tune fenders and rear fender covers, R-tune bonnet which I am waiting to receive (back order)

Custom headlights + tail lights.

From here, it’ll be a wee wait for the bonnet (~1 year).

After talking with the Omori factory guys, I might go for one of their Fine-spec engines fused with some of my current S1 parts and upgrade to the new Nismo R3 turbo.

when this starts happening, I’ll post additional updates about the process

Looks stunning! I do love a Bayside Blue 34.  I presume buying it in 2019 you beat the crazy price rises or did you have to pay big ¥¥ for it?

You say "currently living in Japan", does that mean it's not permanent?

I desperately want to get to Japan at some point before I get too old to appreciate it! 🤣

Yeah, it’s a mid term thing, maybe staying a few more years to finish the car while I’m at it here.

I did kinda beat the crazy rise tho which I’m stoked about.

I love how the exterior worked out, and changed the yellowish parking lights to LED as well.

next will be a complete chassis refresh to make it better than factory + finishing off with Omori factory F-sport engine or the new R3 engine due release next year.
