Well To Answer your 1st Question = Is that I am To Buy Nice Set of Rims For it Lower it So it sits at a good hight. A New Exhaust Prob the whole way through With a Nice Tip To Give it the Extra Bit Of Power & Sound Quality the FTO's Have. And Engine Work Maybe an Air Filter for Now My friend.

Now for your 2nd Question = It differ's From Other that There is Only 1100 Face Lifted Version R's Made In the World. And I've got one. Rare Blue Seats , Rare White & It also Has The 5 Speed TripTronic Box As Most Of The TripTronic come 4 Speed.

Thank guy's.

And yes that is me In The Last Picture On The 1st Thread. lol

Well you wanna no why Not Many FTO's Are Tuned Like V-tec's Because 1st Of all FTO's are a 6 Year Production Line 1994 -2000.

Total = 16438 made from 1995 -2000 at the Mizushima Plant in Japan

It is Unknown How much FTO's were Made In 94'.

1994 - Not Known
1995 - 9,741
1996 - 2,928
1997 - 1,960 ( Face Lift )
1998 - 1,033 ( Version R )
1999 - 616 Limited Editon ( Yellow )
2000 - 160 Aero Series ( Version R )

There Not as Modified I mean There are FTO'S that are Twin Turbo and SuperCharged But Not everywhere there hard to find.

Its Hard to be Honest You have to Import Parts from japan and takes time and $$$ So yeah. You No yourself it isnt easy with a Car that Only has a 6 year Production Line.

Also Got named Japanese Car of the year 1994 , 1995 , 1996:mrgreen:

Very Good From the Japanese i guess lol

These things sound AWESOME with exhaust, extractors and intake!! Even better than an S2000 with the same mod's.

If I were you, I'd try to pick up the Version R wing and make sure you get quality lightweight wheels and decent coilovers, not just Tempe/Ozzy wheels and super low King Springs.

I Know. I think FTO's in Australia are doing well as we are Hard to find on the road as for V-Tec's You would here every Now and then.

Thanks man. Everybody Likes my seats lol haha they are very Good Looking. Especially In the Sun They stand out In a white car.:D

23-03-07, 07:14 PM
Are parts easy to get ?

Yes is the answer.

Only if you no where to get them from and where to look. It might require Importing and a Couple of days wait but hey these days anything is possible.

At this point I must mention that front end parts (bumpers, bonnets, brackets, air radiators) are hard to get. due to the fact most accidents involve the front of the car.

Nice ride mate. How much did you picked it up for as my gf is looking for a fto GPvR as well as a daily driver.

Thanks mate. I picked it up for $14,000 Plus Trade in It was Originally $18,000.

Yeah your gf has good taste. show her my car man see what she say's about it.

They are hard to find but i can give you a good place to keep in contact with www.fujimotorsport.com Or call them. they Import FTO's on a regular basis but rarely GPvR. GoodLuck man i hope you find one.

They are rather Pricey. .You want a GPvR You'll Be looking around $15,000 Fresh Import From Japan Minimum Unless you buy Used In Australia Already.


Nice seats, nice car, looks clean! White's the way to go too. It'll look great once it's lowered + rims. Keep us updated!

Thank You very much mate. :) yeah White is very Hot On an FTO or any car.

Very nice dude! How do you find the triptronic?

Thanks man. :) Yeah i find the 5 Speed TripTronic Box really good. Slide it across anytime you want and your on your way. Its Fun To have Alot of the Trip Box come 4 speed I think the Version R are the only Ones that come 5 speed or maybe the GPX's and the Limited Edition Ones as well. Though alot of the guy's on the road dont no this but get surprised when they see it go or hear about it.

Thanks for the info mate. Yeah, GPvR is rare compared to the GPX so I will keep searching. I will let her know though it's breaking my heart that shes selling her r34 gtr as it just sits in the garage most of the time for this and another car. (yes, I have ask her to swap cars but to no avail :( )

How smooth is the triptronic when changing gears?

wi11iam
26-03-07, 07:15 PM
i think all 97 to 99 is 5 speed tip

tiptronic is smooth just like .500second delay in change

95 gpx is the lightest fto out as the later model ones were released they came with lots more like airbags and momo steering wheel and recaro seats

i got my gpx for 10k with 53000kms

diiference with 5 speed and 4 is mainly the gear ratios
my fto is doing 130 in second gear but my car has a speed limiter at 180 :P

olly car goes ok with apexi pod

26-03-07, 07:57 PM

Selling her R34 GTR She's Crazy. .

Triptronic is Very Very Smooth when changing there is a delay but comparing it to a manual very little difference from my car and a manual.

when you look at it depending on a clutch and changing gears to a human's response is slightly different to shifting Up and computer doing the rest for you.

Fto's triptronic's are very well built and stabilized.

Arnt Recaro Seats ment to make your car Lighter. ? I think so.

yeap that is also right 97-99model Is 5 speed Triptronic.

I do 70kms In 1st Gear and 135in 2nd gear at 8,100revs lol redline just over.

My dial only say's 180 , but i have clocked 200kms and The Accelerator through my foot off the Pedal. My Speed Limter ends at 200kms.

Top speed for mine is 270kms.

yeah and dont forget guy's my car is STOCK as. No air pod or nothing wat so ever.

26-03-07, 09:55 PM
what do they do 100 in


lol Wi11iam i think you miss read at what he wrote down. 15's eww lol no wayy dude.

You mean 15's in 400m 1/4mile. thats resonable.

in 0-100kms I'd say fto's do about 6.5 to 7secs. I a not 100% sure.

No worries :)

Here's the gold rims that you asked for. The angle of the rims and the angle of the photo was a little too different to get just right, but I guess it gives you an idea of what it'd look like. I tell ya man, the front wheel arch on the FTO is way too wide compared to the rear!
