Hi All,

Introduced myself recently and finally had a chance to take some quick pics.

As the title suggests i have a 2000 Nissan Skyline R34 GTT 4 door that i got around 2 weeks ago. Got it through a dealer [Northshore Prestige Motors] who imported it from Japan. Im the first lucky aussie that has owned it in Australia.

Its so hard to find this car in manual with low ks and in the condition this one is in.

Has 56,000ks and i got it for $24,000 i thought that was ok???

Mods:

Engine:
Stock RB25DET NEO
HKS Racing Suction Kit
Splitfire Coilpacks
Mishimoto Aluminium Radiator
Trust HD Timing Belt
Cusco Oil Catch
GT-R Valve [jump to 10-11psi]

Exhaust:
Tomei Front Pipe
Fujitsubo Legalis R Cat Back & Hi Flow Cat

Suspension:
Cusco Coilovers
Cusco Adjustable Rear Upper Arms
Cusco Castor Rods
Cusco Front Upper Arms
Nismo HD Sway Bars

Wheels:
350z Track Rims 18x8 +30

Modifications:
Nismo LSD
ARC Deflector Panel
Tomei Oil Cap
D1 Blitz Radiator Cap
Nismo Black Duracon Gearknob
Replaced stock Gear & Handbrake Boots to leather items
Debadged the boot

Stereo Audio / Visual:
CD/MD Alpine Double Din Deck

I have sooooo many ideas for it, of course i plan to keep it very JDM. The first mod i can afford will be debading her which i plan to do shortly.

Well here are some pics, they arent the best and definitely dont compare to some of the pics ive seen you guys take........so take it easy on me.......oh and yes the car needs to be washed.

Love to know what you guys think........Enjoy!

Congrats on ur purchase! U must be happy with it :) Car looks really good and appears to be in great condition too. Looks awesome as it is...but probably could do with a small lip spoiler on the boot (just a suggestion) :mrgreen:

I've been interested in these 4 doors for a while...will be good to know your impression of handling and performance?

Havent taken any engine bay pics yet....but will soon

Rims are defintely in the to do list and this is what i have in mind...in silver [would like to powder coat them black] just gotta save the cash, i like the bronze but i dont think it will look as good as what the silver would:

Yeah it does only go to 180km but like deez wrote you can change it to the 320km one.

Congrats on the purchase. I bought mine from there about a month ago and had the choice between yours and mine. Obviously I chose mine :)

Yours is still nice but the fact it stank of cigarette smoke (which is quite common anyway in imports) put me off a little.

yeah it was a bit of a put off, i honestly couldnt find any other 4 door manual versions with low ks. Heaps of tiptronics out there but definitely had to have the manual version so i said stuff it who cares

want to get the inside professionally cleaned to get rid of the smell completely. First thing i bought when i got it was an air freshener :D

To remove the Speed Limiter, just cut the speedo wire to the ECU, this way the ECU will not cut the fuel once the speed limit is reached. (pin53)

I am not sure if the Rb25DET pinout for the speed limiter is the same on the R34 as it is on the R32, R33

I think id be a little scared to cut it without being 100% sure it was the right wire....i did see some images of the 300km nismo combination meter with a 10,000 RPM and 300km speedo which looked nice id probably upgrade to that before cutting the wire.

Powerplayimports.com sell them as well as the nismo centre console gauges for the R34GTT.

LaT1NaSo
07-11-07, 06:10 PM
upgrading your dash will not increase your speed limiter!

but it will look cool :mrgreen: lol...


I will find out the ECU pinouts for a R34 and tell you, but I've cut Pin53 on my car and wound straight past 180km/h before.

If you find out ill give it a go.....just dont know when ill get a chance to test it out im gonna have to take the beast to the track eventually i suppose.

LaT1NaSo
08-11-07, 10:22 AM
hahahah I would spend that money and invest in something more worthwhile, perhaps a boost controller?

I was only kidding, i think a new dash would be the last thing on my list but ill definitely give the wire cutting a go.

Its been a long while since i done anything with the car but recently purchased this, hopefully a different front mount and a cat back exhaust will be coming soon as well.

Ive been real lazy and the front mount i bought was never fitted [sort of glad i didnt fit it now], Just jap just released a Stealth FMIC kit that has the piping go through the factory areas so no need to cut stuff and make holes, which also means less chance of stuff not fitting right etc which means more money on modifying/fabricating bits to make it fit right. Was looking for one originally but for an equivalent big jap brand kit they start at around 1k where as the just jap kit is half the price. Any way enough of making excuses here are some pics.

Also put some extra pics on page 1 of the car.

Thanks hammo_89.

I havent fitted it yet, ill be getting the new FMIC in the next month.......hopefully and then ill powder coat both the induction pipe and the intercooler & piping black. Then ill put it all on.

Cant wait to get the induction sound, i had a pod filter on my 1990 Toyota Corolla SX, i used to purposely kick the throttle to hear the induction noise.....lovely sound.

I bought it on ebay, this is the store:

http://stores.ebay.com.au/Performance-Guru

Im pretty sure it does replace the stock rubber intake pipe, the stock AFM goes onto the end just before the filter. With regards to the nipples i couldnt tell you as i havent put it on as yet to see where everything goes. I can PM you once ive put it in, hopefully towards the end of the month.

I can scan in pictures in the install instructions if you like?

Hi All,

Took some shots of my car a couple of weeks back around the La Perouse area, im sure most of you know the spot.......thought id share it with you y'all.

Been super lazy and still havent fitted any of my bits ive got, only thing i installed was a Kaixen HID Kit which looks really cool.

Finally got some of my parts in, got the Fujitsubo Legalis R exhaust, HKS Racing Suction Kit, GT-R valve [for more boost], Cusco Oil Catch Can and high flow cat. Thankfully i already had an aftermarket front pipe.

Here are some videos i took of the new bits with my iPhone:

Cusco Oil Catch Can & HKS Racing Suction Kit
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjaZgNU_Fts

Huge improvement the fact i had a large front pipe going into the stock cat and exhaust was seriously restricting flow and causing loss of power from a certain rev range but now flows alot better and no restriction mid to top end is awesome!

LOL.....took me a while to figure out the plates i wanted plus i didnt want to pay tooo much for them. I would have preferred just ER34 but couldnt justify the cost. Im holding out on the dyno looking to put some more mods on the car plus i was looking into the nistune chip which would benifit from some dyno time if i put it in.

So I've finally done something with the car, bought some 350z track rims off jaypl168 [thanks Mate] cleaned them up and gave them a spray with black matt paint. Also bought some front Cusco upper arms to make sure i can adjust everything once they go on. The car still needs to be dropped maybe 10 or 15mm both front and back but i think i might do that after I've changed the tyres, for now i only dropped the rear 10mm to flatten it a little. Heres a pic....
