MostDoubted's R33
« on: December 29, 2014, 11:18:11 AM »
So I thought I'd finally look at doing a build/picture post for my R33.

Its an 96' Nissan Skyline R33 GTS25DE Sedan.

This will be the 4th one I've owned so far. I can't get enough of them for some reason

Bought it standard, factory 5 Stud big brakes. Non Hicas rear end and LSD.

So far I've completely removed the interior.
Tein coilovers.
Tru Hart Rear camber arms and Toe arms.
Bolt on 30mm Guards

Currently waiting on my 8 point cage to be installed in the coming weeks.

Coming plans:
5.7 LS1 Motor swap, or possibly a 350ci 5.7 ( I work for chev so I have one laying around )
Wide rear quarters and door for a more GTR side rear.
GTR Front end.
Bucket seats

Just little bits and pieces as I go. She is fairly standard as of right now.

Dropped her off to get the 8 point cage all fitted up yesterday.



Also threw my spacers on the back and spaced out the front a little more.

So over the past few weeks I did a +T on the motor. Just waiting to purchase a front mount kit this week.



And it finally had a wash.

Hey guys. So thought I'd upload a little update.

So lately since turboing the engine. I bought a front mount kit and I choose to upgrade the clutch, I bought a 4200lbs pressure plate and 6 puk HD clutch from AutoClutch since I've heard a few D1 guys run it and seemed like the way to go.
Replaced slave, master and went with braided clutch lines.

Right now I'm  replacing the water pump, timing belt etc as my pump has started leaking in the past few weeks. Hopefully may have a new alloy radiator to suit this week aswell all going well.
Also managed to buy some sedan skirts for $50 so I couldn't pass up the chance!

All going well, I should be attending my first track day on easter weekend. Have played on the pad a couple times. But with needing to run the clutch in I thought I'd take the step to do something I had been wanting to do for along time so here goes nothing  ;D

Will chuck up some new photos.

So since I last posted up. I did my first track day, sadly didn't go as planned. Got 6-7 laps on the track until I could hear a sound in the back of my mind that something wasn't right. Slowly crepped into the pits and could hear knocking, knew it wasn't right. Big end had gone and that was me for the day sadly.



The only pictures of the day from the one session sadly.

So the following week, bought myself an engine crane and took the motor out.

Check that sump plug..


I've since cleaned up all the engine bay and bought S2 coupe lights on the weekend. Cut some metal out of the radiator support and made them fit snug.


Hopefully buying an imported RB25DET this week and will have it in for this weekend. Then possibley back to the track mid next month would be a nice treat.

Pull the head off and stick some oil restrictors in and overfill the sump by 1 litre...

Alright so its been a while. Few things have changed since I've been inactive.
RB25DET S2 installed.
6 puk clutch
Full 3" straight through
BC Golds
GTR front bumper
S2 Headlights
R32 GTR rear wing
Extended LCA's

Just little things.






I've been flat out with work for a bit so haven't really done alot to the car. Started to lose motivation to keep doing things weekly.
