The Vcam with the 2.8 is unreal. There is strong low to mid range torque. It also feels like the car comes on boost smoother than a 2.6 with cams.

Here's before an after Vcam Step1 was installed on a friends car with the same setup, unfortunately I dont have before and after comparison. RB28, GTX2860-5's, E85.

Same dyno, same fuel, same exhaust cam and same boost. Only change was Vcam. As you can see, the car gained 100kw mid range.

Thanks bro. Very good info. I’m thinking of going for the step pro. It looks like it does wonders everywhere.

Great info. Thanks a million. That’s a massive improvement.

Do you know what exhaust cam they used?

No worries.

IN: HKS Vcam Pro 264/10
EX: HKS 272/10.2.
Green curve is with VCam running. White curve is with VCam turned off running like a normal cam.
1.04a/r on the exhaust housing.

Wow they didn’t even use an aggressive exhaust cam.

Very interesting.

Thanks again.

Back to my car!

Herewith some pics of the TE37's getting refurbished
I went with an original Rays optional colour of Satin Black and ordered genuine Rays stickers from Japan. Im very happy with the outcome as it reminds me of the 1999 JGTC Winning R34 GTR (The Famous RB28 powered Pennzoil car)

Nismo R-Tune bonnet
Nismo Z-Tune fenders
Nismo S-Tune bumper

All genuine Nismo items
Are there any plans for the 2nd donor car?

I sold the Nur and the new owner plans to put the car back on the road. I thought it was too far gone but we shall see if it pops up in a few years

Some more interior bits have been added to the mix. Nismo harnesses made by Willans really look the part! These are period correct as they were made in 2002.

In the first pic you can notice how the drivers and passenger harnesses differ slightly.

In the second pic you can actually spot the original grey rear trim from the Vspec, It has since been replaced with black trim from the Nur

Why the Nismo harnesses? Because Racecar?

Thanks Red Duke! The harnesses really are awesome pieces. They've been a bad influence on my GTR mates here as everyone now wants some haha.

Nismo seat covers really transform the interior too. I've been considering some to protect the Nur seats, plus adding more Nismo items too the car is never a bad idea!

Update on the LED lights at the rear of the car.

The Sunline LED's were replaced with genuine Nismo items. I noticed the Sunlines were a lot brighter and the LED's were sharper than the Nismo's. The Nismo tail lights also did not have LED indicators, whereas the Sunlines had the (optional extra) LED indicators

LED rear fog light and reverse light was also added.

A custom LED boot break light was the last touch for the rear end lighting

- Pic 1 and 2 have the Sunline's
- Pic 3 you can notice the LED boot brake light
- Pic 4 & 5 the Nismo's are fitted

A white plate (reversed Japanese style display plate) was placed behind the number plate to hide the bars seen in pic 1

Lastly I removed the Nissan badge from the rear to give the car a nice clean look

It's not everyday you get a pic with your hero

My car with the LEGENDARY Mine's R34 GTR Vspec N1

1 of only 3 ever made. This one belongs to Vspec Performance in Melbourne.
They also have 2 Mine's built Nur's, a 400R and a Z-Tune (To name a few) in their stable.

Wasn't there a video feature on this shop recently? Possibly by Motive Video? I'm sure I've seen that shop somewhere, the Z-Tune was in a carcoon style bubble too. I can't see places with a Z-Tune, 400R and several Mines GTR's being too common... Lol
