Hey everybody!

Names Nate, drive a 1993 R32 Sedan.

Car started life as a GXI factory Manual (Ex jap driver training car) but after driving it for a few days and overheating it 6 times, I decided to convert it to RB20DE manual. Got it all going and got a full panel and paint and within 2 months had blown the RB20DE up due to its lack of wanting to drift at slipway.

The RB20DE was replaced with a low K RB25DE from a GTS25 Auto and has made a huge improvement with drivability and skidability when required.

Aside from the engine conversion and fresh coat of paint, car is almost standard aside from a full exhaust, some ISC Coil Overs and a set of low offset 17x8 / 17x9 alloys.

I have also owned an S13 180SX (track only), an A31 Cefiro, a C33 Laurel Diesel, 92 Vtec Prelude, 83 City Turbo, U12 Bluebird SSS and about 15 others :)

I work as a sales rep for Extreme Automotive (19 Railway Ave, Lower Hutt and 42 Adelaide Road, Newtown, Wellington).

Ideas been there but it holds its own at slipway at the moment but i'm definitely planning on turboing it in the future. Hoping for an RB26DETT conversion but would settle for an RB25DET.

I once got the CA18I to slide about 5m round a corner handbrake assisted before bogging down haha. Good riddance to that boat anchor!

I'l fire up a pic of the car how it was when I got it when I find one, it was primered then clearcoated with rusty bits and dents. Has had a fair bit of panelbeating to get it to where it is but its mint now, considering it was brought to be a caged driftp!g !!!
