No Z-tunes in Cyprus. The one you are referring to is in Greece and the owner has a very nice Subaru 22B as well.

You can't properly drive a GTR there as there simply isn't enough space and the speed limit is so low you could get caught from a camera due to speeding while walking - LOL
Jensen managed to drive his quite quickly around Guernsey.

Confirmation of MP Z Tune build numbers

Could anyone help with the translation of the magazine article below, showing the R34 MP Z Tune.

We are trying to confirm a few facts so that the car can be added to 9TR's GTR Registry.

What is the Z Tune build number?

What is the Z2 engine number?

Article taken from a GTR magazine - Does anyone have an original copy that they can scan, or sell?

Can anyone confirm the GTR magazine Issue number so that we can purchase an original copy?


many thanks jps

Where the Z-tune was a Nismo project based on used cars, does anyone know if the S-tune and R-tune sold new by Nissan, or are they the same? Was there ever any special R32 / 33 versions by Nismo?

Info on the R-Tune is here,

https://www.gtr.co.uk/forum/463433-r34-nismo-r-tune.html

I do not believe any R or S Tune cars where made 'NEW' as such - Used customers cars where used.

Nismo R32 cars include the N1 & NISMO (250 & 500 approx resp)

and

Nismo R33 cars include LM & 400R (98 & 44 resp)

Some pics of build #15 currently at Omori Factory getting a full overhaul. Colour change from KY0 Z-Tune Silver to LX0 Midnight Purple.

The chassis is also getting a full refresh and the engine will be rebuilt/refreshed.

Agreed, nismo should never accept color changes on Z-Tunes IMO.

No problem I will post as I am made aware of updates.

I personally would have also kept the silver, then again the car was originally another colour to begin with, Omori Factory are the ones doing it and it does look awesome!

The purist in me says keep it KY0 but I have to admit it looks amazing! Plus it will match his LP2 Midnight Purple II Nismo 400R

I wonder if he will convince Nismo to paint his Nismo R35 GTR in Midnight Opal
