Hi Everyone,

My name is Anthony, I'm 24, Italian and I've been a part of JDMST for awhile now, but only just decided to start a new thread.
I'm the proud owner of a Blue 92' Skyline R32 Gts-T.
I've had my fair share of modified cars so far, this car is Number 10 :shock:

My previous cars include: 82' Ke70, 93' Charade, 93' Evo 3, 94' VR Calais, 05' BF Xr6, 93' Skyline R32, 82' S2 Rx7, 90' Bmw E30, 93' Jap-Spec SSS and now this.

I'm from the Liverpool area in Sydney, and am hoping to come along to the next EOMM so I can meet a few of you, now that I have a car worth bringing. :D

I picked up this beauty for decent money a week ago. I absolutely love it and goes way harder then my previous Gts-T, mainly due to the extra mods this one has. They are as follows:

-R33 turbo
-FMIC
-3" turbo-back exhaust
-Oil cooler and catch can
-Pod filter
-G4 coilovers
-Slotted rotors
-Brass button clutch
-Turbosmart boost controller
-Turbosmart bov
-Boost gauge
-HKS turbo timer
-Gts-T rims painted white
-Factory leather interior
-Alpine deck, speakers and amp

The car is in pretty good overall condition for it's age. I haven't got alot of future plans for it (at least immediately due to recently losing my job) eventually would like a new set of numberplates, white 18" ce28's or my mate has a set of white 17" Advans, if I can get them for cheap (or suggestions) and to just keep it as a neat streeter. ;)

Tell me what you guys think...

Pics will be up soon.

Cheers
Anthony

Hey mat, did you know Wade? He definitely did mate, didn't take any shortcuts.

Hey all,

I've just realised I haven't updated this thread in awhile. Unfortunately, not alot has taken place since my last update, mainly due to lack of funds.

However, I have turned up the boost, so she's now running 15psi and also removed the wing, to see how she'd look without it. I honestly don't mind it, I've had a few mixed responses though. Any suggestions are welcome.

Pictures are below.
Cheers,
Anthony

Thanks alot for that Anf, I appreciate it. I really like it aswell, it was installed there by the previous owner and I think it's different and alot better than having it in the usual places.

Looks amazing mate.

Not sure how long the 33 turbo will last at 15 psi.
12 psi is safe... 14 is where the ceramic wheel starts to fall apart.
Unless its been highflowed.

Really??? I might have to wind it back down then. The car does cop a beating. I'm unsure if it's been highflowed, because it was done by the previous owner.
Is there anyway I can tell?

Thanks for that. I might go with option 2 and the pull the mirror out tomorrow.

Also, would anyone know if I'd have an rb20 or 25 manifold? Can you attach an r33 turbo to either of them?

I haven't updated this thread in awhile. Not alot has changed since last time.
Off the top of my head, I recall taking my front bar off to get better access to my front mount to give it a good clean (what a pain that was)
I've purchased white Nismo seatcovers to protect my leather seats and I ordered and attached new numberplates "TUF 032"
Pictures to come shortly...

Oh ok, mate I had no idea. It does sound good though, any chance of getting a pic to see how yours came up? Also, what did you use, some sort of paint stripper?

Ok guys, bit of an update. I've finally found a new cheap daily, after going 3 weeks without a car.
I picked up this beauty for decent money a few days ago. I've loved the Ke30 shape since I was a little kid and still can't get the smile off my face. My Corolla is fairly standard, apart from a few mods. They are as follows:

- Lowered 2 inches all round
- Rx8 bucket seats
- Pioneer deck (Hidden in glove box) Amp and 6x9's
- White venetians
- Alarm/Immobiliser and keyless entry

Everything else on the car is stock, including 3k, 4spd, the rest of the interior, the wheels and all the body. The car is overall in good condition, with only 3 spots of rust and an uncracked dash!!! The motor runs sweet and all the electrics work including the cigarette lighter and radio.

Some future plans are a tidy up, floor mats, numberplates and new wheels.

Tell me what you guys think...

Pics will be up soon.

Cheers
Anthony

Not much has changed in the last month, a few bits and pieces have been sprayed, mainly in the engine bay (Pic below) just as part of tidying up, a few stickers added, but otherwise just been cruising it and getting compliments everywhere it goes.

I now have numberplates in mind, just haven't got around to ordering them.
As far as wheels are concerned, I'm thinking SSR Meshies in 14 or 15" with white centres. I would definitely like to hear thoughts/feedback on this.
