AFAIK this is not possible. Of course with enough engineering it could be done but as it understand it there isn't enough space at the top oif the wings for them.

Saw a video of an American buying a autobahn 88 kit and fitted it to his R32. Was stock bonnet and not raised.

its possible

there is only 1 company in Japan that supplies these that bolt right on to 32.

they are a slightly different fitment than 33/34

can supply them if you wish.

Hey Sub, do your 88 ones fit well? They dont strain the bits they mount onto?

Are they good enough to be dependable?

I'd like to ditch the bonnet prop...

Seems to be fine and reliable, I am running different front fenders, so it might be different on the factory gaurds. I had to drill out the hole that the dome mount goes in so it will sit lower.....so the fit is OK but not perfect.
I'll take some pics

I had looked at the Autobahn kit, from what I could find it is about the same quality as NRG stuff which I have used and liked.. I haven't bit the bullet yet.

Edit: I should add the NRG was not for a skyline so don't bother looking.

I would love an rb30 for the torque but the work involved putting one together is huge it seems :/ there's a comprehensive guide somewhere but even then I was wary about so much of the work
