The R32 has an RB25DE in it, and it's manual. R200 shimmed diff, Tein SuperStreet coilovers, Kakimoto N-GT Rims, HKS catback exhaust, Blitz Pod, Cusco strut brace and some other random things :)
Here's one more picture from yesterday.

Well after having some fun with a s-series diff with open centre l thought it was time to upgrade. So saturday l went down to sydney to pick up a t series with brand new cusco rs 2way. Soon as a got home l started to change diffs. I changed diffs all by myself with the assistance of a hoist in my shed lol. I took it for a drive and l love it, it is ver very tight. also gotta put these castor rods in this week...
