R32 GTR (& GTS4 & largely GTSt) Wiring Diagram Scans

Recommended Posts

After much whining over the years over the quality/readability of the wiring diagrams in the age old pdf scan of the R32 GTR workshop manual, I pulled my copy out and ran it over the scanner.

Now, it's not perfect. My paper sheets are assembled from photocopies of the originals that I had to tape together. So there are slight discontinuities here and there. On top of that, I had to scan my long taped together sheets as A4 segments and reassemble them on screen, which involved rotating some parts by little angles like 0.15°. But they are pretty good. On top of that, I have left jpgs of the raw individual scanned parts for each numbered assembled scan so you can see the points where they join without any little artefacts caused by my manual stitching.R32 GTR Wiring Diags.zip

The quality of the scan is much better than the old pdf, but there is only so much detail that can be pulled out of the original photocopy. Most of the wiring numbers and colours that were hard to read before are a better, but some remain fairly hard to see. I tried 600dpi scans and it didn't help at all. This is about as good as it gets unless someone scans an original.

Thanks on behalf over everyone who will use these but never consider that someone put in the time to do them :) These copies are definitely much better than the ones in the pdf

I do actually have the original originals that I could scan too, but as you described I don't really know the best way to deal with the very wide fold out pages.  If anyone has suggestions on a way to get a better outcome let me know and I can give it a go.

Wow that makes a huge difference. The wire labelling is so much clearer, makes everything easier to follow.

I'll be printing these out to replace my dogeared prints of the old pdf/scan.

Thanks for sharing.

The time is worth it to simplify future efforts to help peeps on here.

You just have to scan them on any A4 (or better, A3) flatbed in pieces with enough overlap to allow reassembly and keeping them dead straight. Gray scale 300dpi will do. Then assemble in a graphics program like the Gimp. I tried using stitching software but it can't cope - it's designed for photo panoramas.

If you want to put the time into scanning the original, you could upload them to OneDrive/Google/whatever and I'll stitch them.

    • Something about these RBs just makes for huge headaches when it comes to dropping bolts. My very first interaction with the car was changing the plugs out to see if it would cure a misfire. I immediately dropped one of the coilpack cover bolts down the intake side of the engine. I called it a total loss and ordered a set of replacement bolts just to have, but I found the original bolt months later jammed in one of the ITBs, right in a little gap between the intake runners and a reinforcing bridge in the part.
    • Ended up getting a getrag for a resonable price in the end but considering what they are selling for now I am probably going to put it on the market now. How's everyone's PPG sequential's going still?
    • For a while I'd be living with a mysterious oil leak from vaguely behind the timing covers. After a drive there would be a small puddle under the car. If I ran the valley cover oil would collect under in the coilpacks especially around #1 and #2. If I ran no valley cover there would be a fine mist over most of the engine bay. Everything pointed to bad front main or cam seals as it was impossible to initially see the source as the timing belt would pull everything around. I tried several times in a day replacing the seals thinking that the issue was one of the front main or cam seals. I went as far as using genuine nissan goo around the corners of the cam seals etc. But still the issue remained. This was how it was for longer than I care to admit but with a large sump capacity and limited use it wasn't a big issue. Finally I found the issue, The VCT gear thing itself was leaking and after speaking to a few people who are highly knowledgeable in RBs the consensus was "huh thats a new one."   Anyway incase this is your issue too i post the following run through: remove the upper timing cover and replace the CAS using the small spacers from in the upper timing cover. Oil behind the VCT timing gear on the timing backing plate. But not behind the backing black on the head around the seals.   Oil inside the VCT gear   VCT oil gear pressed in seal. Apparently there is an o-ring behind the seal. it was able to rotate independent of the rest of it   a test i did to point me in this direction was holding some paper against the backing plate and shining a bright light on the paper to watch the oil spray pattern     More info in the video showing the tests and the rotating of a bad vs good gear. Also voice reveal lol   right after I confirmed the issue was fixed i dropped one of the little CAS spacers down into guts of it. Thankfully I had an inspection camera and a magnet so did not need to remove the timing belt for what would have been the 20th time!
    • Damn they're tasty!!  I love the satin kind of finish it comes up as.  
    • Did you do the powder coating? They look great.
