My first Skyline :)

Good morning everyone! Just thought id introduce myself and my latest purchase, i picked up a R33 GTR 500r from a fellow member (richie). Here's a quick list of the spec.

HKS 2510 Turbos, HKS 256 Camshaft, HKS 550 Injectors, HKS Intercooler, HKS Engine Oil Coolers, HKS Quickshift, AP Racing Front Disc Kit, HKS Torque Split Controller, Nismo Wheels and Quantum adjustable shocks etc.

I had it dyno'd on Sunday she came out with 433bhp @1.4 bar

I've got a few subtle mods in mind but nothing serious as i love it the way it is but we'll see how long that lasts ill get some photos up when i can.

Cheers Dean

Don't change a thing. One of the nicest R33's I've seen, and the Middlehurst 500R gives it a rarity factor.

Mine has one end GTR, the other plain too - mine's a Middlehurst car as well so perhaps there's a theme?

No, that's just how the end caps are. One side with GTR one side without.

sounds great and looking forward to the pics. I assume the HP figure is at the hubs? Or is that estimate fly? I would have expected 500Bhp with that spec and boost.

Cheers That was Flywheel power, i had it dyno'd 2 sundays ago. The guys at the garage said the dyno was struggling to compensate for the difference between the rear and front wheels. When i can ill post the graph up and pics .
