Osiris's R33 GTR
« on: March 28, 2012, 10:01:53 PM »
Thought i would post some pics of my gtr on here. Been slowly doing things on her since i brought her last year.



This was its first day home. Was extremely happy as you can imagine.
Was hugely different to my ute and alot of fun. Previous owner had done a few stupid things which i set about fixing.


Engine as it was

And then 2 months later i heard a little bit of a tink noise and lost power. Was not thrashing or anything. was slowing down into 70km zone at the time.

This is what had happened!!!!!



Of course i diddnt know that at the time. After towing it to Shred in lower hutt all the way from the hawkes bay i found out the issue and the slight failure that had occured. Boy was i pissed. Had only done 110,000km

That of course had some lead on effects such as......





Due to the fins being sucked back throught the exhaust valves.
After stripping the engine you could tell the previous owner/owners had not cared for her at all.

This was the oil pump. Would say it had very infrequent services in its life


So now it was time for the rebuild. The block was basicly f****d so decided with the guys at shred and a bit of prodding from stagefumer to go RB30 instead as would be a similar cost in the end.



Block coming together with its new arp headstuds


Bit of work being done during the rebuild.


Engine back in the car ready for the dyno. Time to start getting excited :jack::jack:



Dyno sheet once it was going. Quite pleased really

These photos now are of it after i got it back and started adding my own bits and pieces and probably far to much polishing. :jack:







And finally the engine bay as it looks now after having the strut brace painted and buying the sticker to go back on it. lol :D:D



Still a bit to do. Want to change the radiator at some point, the radiator overflow + the washer bottle to alloy and make an alloy cold air box with air scoop similar to standard and an air diffuser infront of the radiator.
Still have to lower it, get new vents for the bumper as mine are missing and want to change the front indicator lens to clear instead of orange. Im sure theres alot more too but only think of things as i do them and every time i open the bonnet. lol :jack: Oh and replace the air conditioning as mines missing and the air vents just suck hot air right off the motor and it gets damn hot in the car...

So thats my car. Still a work in progress but getting there. I now realise why i have no money. But what better things are there to spend it on??

Looking good, you've done a nice job on the engine bay. Is it still on standard suspension, looks mighty high?

Yup all suspension is still standard. Trying to figure out what brand of adjustables to go once I've got the cash. Won't go real low. Prob only half the distance between wheel and guard now. And that 1st pic was on a hill and angled sideways 2 so it looks even higher.

Not sure on the pistons. Would need to check the invoice. Not forged though. Wasn't that rich as I had just spent it all on buying the car. The turbo is a scarles gt3540. Would like to change it to a Garrett 3540 or a t04z though. The turbo is at its limit I think as it was a cheapy in comparison to the Garrett. Guys at shred thought I might get up 2 100 kw more by going with a better turbo and a couple other small changes.

was thinking that 310 is pretty low for an RB30.  My stock RB26 with cams makes 283 @ all four hubs.... !

Very clean tho!  I've just bought some Tein Superstreets so could either do you a deal on my slightly lowered suspension (not adjustable) or do a search on here as there may still be sets of Teins available.

EDIT: did someone steal your N1 bumper vents, or has it just had the holes cut in there??  can sort you out a deal on those too ;)

Yeah 310 is at all 4 but could always be higher:-) :-) :-) . Suspension really depends on cash situation. I keep spending my savings lol. The vents were missing when I brought it and when Nissan quoted $400 per vent haven't really looked much further. Been slacking off but it would be nice to have them in. And then just repaint bumper and change front indicators and I will be happy

Would like new suspension. My rear left shock is on the way out. Has a slight bang going over bumps so could be keen on what u have even as a temporary for me until I can afford some adjustables.

Hi Osiris.

Dam that is nice what you've done with her, pity about the previous owner and damage. Smart thinking going with the 30 after the 26 let go.
