So I finally went and got another Jap turbo 😊

longed for another one for years since selling my damson purple s14a.

With the prices rocketing up I thought if I don’t buy one now I probably never will!

went and looked at various manual Jap turbo cars that were available locally but they were fit for the bin and looking crazy money.

I was losing hope until a skyline r33 gtst spec 2 popped up on my Facebook feed “skylines for sale page” and I was ohhh thats nice!

I always preferred the spec 2 as they’re a lot fresher looking so I messaged the guy and he’s owned it for 3.5 years and a mechanic who has threw a lot of parts at the car in his ownership and seemed to look after the car quite well.

Plan to make it around 400bhp or so, rang Richard Bradley and he give me scary figures... need to get saving and see what’s out there.

Been told I need:

Link ECU
G Boost manifold
Turbo
740cc injectors

any other guidance on tuning is welcome 🙂

had the car up on a ramp getting a health check done and it’s actually pristine, paintwork that’s been done before isnt great for my standard but very presentable. Il prob be repainting a lot of it and have it perfect.

driver seat needs slight attention but other than that the interior is extremely clean for 24 year old car.

just enjoy driving it and listening to the turbo noises for now 🥰

Joe

Class mate, would love one of my two old ones back again, preferably the first one!

Wider arches are nice as well, always thought the GTSt was a bit narrow looking

guy who owned it loved it and put it through mot the other week and balanced wheels and waxed it before pick up. He had to get deposit for house so had to sell, we’ve all been there ha

Nice example. I bought one last months, I need to get some funds together now to get it how I want it. Really want one of those lips but can't seem to find them anywhere. View attachment 299188
I think I was texting the previous owner of that car and I gona try and buy it but think it just sold... you must have bought it.

which lip you looking?
Brilliant Joe! Speak to Mark Chapman, he might still be in the WhatsApp group. He has his sitting at around 900bhp and knows his stuff with these.
Think his is a GTR but still very knowledgeable I’m sure 👍 mines like a Nissan micra compare to his car power output 😂

I sealed the deal at the start of September for it and flew out the next week.

I'm looking for the same one as you have.
