He said above, Yahoo Japan auctions I've found them on Z1 Motorsports, only place I've found that can get them - 6-8 week delivery though! Ordered mine a couple of days ago.

Took her out for a spin, got into it a few times and babied it a bit too (though majority of the time had no choice due to traffic). Seemed to do ok, but thought once it felt like it stumbled a bit from a stop, but couldn't tell for certain. No CEL, no weird/alarming smells or smoke. Gauges all looked normal. I'm still looking for cracked hoses and potential vacuum leaks. Planning to do more tests this weekend on the other components like tps, iat, etc. Might tackle the fuel filter, haven't changed it since I've owned it the last 2.5 years, no clue it's age.

More updates to follow. Hopefully good news, I can make it to work and back tomorrow.

Well by some small miracle I made it to work and back. Still don't fully trust the car yet, like I don't think I really fixed the original problem. However, I'll chalk it up as a partial win, since I made the trek without breaking down or having issues.

Once I got home and had dinner, the wife reminded me our utilities were due. So went to the local grocery store and hit up the ATM to get money to pay the utilities. Of course as usual when I go, I sneak around and hit up the local bookstore to see if there's anything of interest. Usually every few months I pick GT-R magazine and monthly I get Drift Tengoku and Option. Since I have the most recent ones of those I thought I'd see what else they have. To my surprise they had a neat GT-R enthusiast magazine. Pretty interesting looking articles, specifically the one with Knob Tanaguchi and the 4 different GT-R's (that Autech R33 is so cool, never a fan of the Zero R though). And can't have a GT-R mag without featuring one of my favorite GT-R rivalries, Mine's and MCR. I wish there was a video of the conversations those two had.

More updates soon!

Question

Would you mind taking a picture, (so its readable), of the Hiroshi Tamura's BNR32 x 35 article please?

I've heard a lot of great things about his 32, mainly from himself.

Sure. As requested, apologies for it being taken with a potato.

I'm very glad to see Tamura-san still has his 32 though.

Thanks very much anyway.

There's some English, like his name, the article title, and websites.

Don't feel bad I can't read most it of either. Good for practicing later on though. Tbh, I don't know who he is. Should I?

Lightbulb

As a GT-R owner you really should know of this guy!!

He is, (or was when I knew him), Nissans Chief Project Planner and one of the main people behind the 33 & 34 and the person who introduced the Midnight Purple colour as a knod to the Midnight Club.
