Back from the dead
« on: March 29, 2018, 09:10:28 PM »
Ive been out of the skyline scene for a long time. Use to own a r33 Mspec.  Well im currently looking for one. probably a 2007 ish 250gt or these fuga 350 things I assume are sort of a rebranded skyline with a bigger engine. So just saying hi and any comments on either of these two models. Gonna be my daily runner so likely keep it pretty stock. Not sure to go for the 250 or 350? PS Im from Queenstown.
Cheers

They are a big car - go for the 350 its a good engine. High mileage 250s seem to chew out cam chains. I have a 2006 Maxima which is much the same car but front wheel drive.

Thanks looking at 2005 350 with 93k on clock.
What do you consider high mileage on the 250 you mention that chew chains

180000+
Don't know if its caused by poor maintenance but its expensive to fix. Deosn't seem to happen with 350
Fugas also come in 450 (VH45 V8). They seem good value for money.

good choice on getting the gt350 I,ve got a 2005 gt350 skyline  black coupe. its even got the rear spoiler. looking at motordyne g35 that's on youtube. it looks like a mirror. his is a 2005  aswell. I had a 1990 gts rb20de black coupe. I had that car for 18 years. but it got stolen. that's why I got a gt350 skyline. oh make sure you put a oil catch can. I,ve put a mishimoto baffle on mine
