The evolution of my (allready) pretty high spec R33 GT-R to Club RH9 performance and trackday handling, for the street, with full interior and AC.

I thaught id start a project thread on here since the swedish forum i used to attend has died. Struggling with the language though.

Im a performance oriented motorhead living in a small town in the very north of Sweden. Discovered the internet in -95 and on it was a very cool car called Nissan Skyline GT-R. 20 years later i sold my E36 M3 Evo Coupť and bought this nice Spark Silver BCNR33 from 1995.

Unfortunately there is no validated info on exactly whats done and when. Engine is allegdly built by Tweenie Rob and i know for a fact its been dynoed to 614hp at Perfect Touch in -07, shortly before it came to Sweden. Im third owner in Sweden, dont know anything about its history in Japan and very little in UK.
However, the car is in excellent condition. No rust what so ever. Interior is swapped to a mint spec 3 with red trim. DSC_0175_1548409616970.JPGDSC_0176_1548409681520.JPGDSC_0174_1548409698902.JPG

There are, however, some issues.
I drive my cars hard. Very hard. And i love high rpm!
Clutch was going out when i bought the car. If i only used low boost (1,1) it kind of worked. But even at such low boost the engine evacuated large amounts of oil through the breather when pushed hard.
It has very high EGT, over 900 degrees, at higher gear wot. Pushed it as far as 1000 once to see if it would just go on climbing, and it did.
It runs extremely rich. Probably a (poor) way of dealing with the high EGT i guess. I tried to lean it out, and immediately felt it getting stronger when not drowning, but EGT got even worse so i had to go back. Apexi FC is NOT fun to work with, by the way!
Spent a fortune on gas that summer. About 5000kms and 1500litres of fuel... Thats how rich it ran! Below Lambda 0,7 on boost. Ridiculous!
Dont know what caused the EGT to run wild. Ignition looked rather agressive, but i cant be shure the numbers in the map translates to actuall degrees of timing. Exhaust manifold is stock (ported), one of very few things still stock. Perhaps it is too restrictive and huge backpressure sets off the EGT, I simply dont know. But from what i read 600hp should not be a problem for stock manifolds. DSC_0173_1548458767740.JPG

Growing up around Harleys ive always liked LOUD pipes. The sound must be right (no straight pipes!) but when it is right, louder is better for me. And my Skyline is LOUD. The sound is absoluty perfect thanks to equal length down pipes and twin pipe Kakimoto exhaust. Love it! Friends tell me they can hear me coming several km away. Down side is of course police attention... Thinking of electric cut off valves or something simular.
Rev limiter was set at 8000 when i bought it. Im not very fast shifting gears with the left so it kind of lost puff between gears. Raised the limiter to 8500 and it made all the difference! Now it doesent hesitate after upshift, it just goes. Want to rev even higher but i must secure oil pump drive and crank ventilation first.

Late autumn 2016 the clutch was totaly shot. Then both turbos failed. Probably due to oil starvation. Car has been sitting since waiting for time and money.
Time is now. Ive just taken the motor apart and it looks great! No damage or even signs of wear. Bearings looks good and pistons practicly looks like new. Happy days!

Plan is to convert to splines for oil pump drive. Oil pump is a GREX, wich apparetly is a GReddy highvolume pump. Will also modify oil pan for higher volume and modify crank (and head) ventilation to reduce windage.
Out with Apexi Donkey Kong (FC, i hate it!) and in with something a little more user friendly, probably VEMS since i have one lying around. Crank trigger. New engine harness. Perhaps R35 coils.
Ive got some things waiting to be fitted, like ÷hlins suspension, Skylab TSC, Nismo cluster, brake cooling, alu radiator, Tomei Expreme manofolds, new CHRAs for the T517z turbos and some other bits and pieces.

Spoke with a fellow GT-R owner and he is converting to an electric steering servo pump. I thaught this was a brilliant idea, solves several problems. Also alowes for tuning servofeel vs speed.
I have decided to go with an electric water pump aswell. Will make a plate where the stock pump goes, with fittings for water in and out. Probably make an idler for the pump pulley to be able to use standard belt. Hope to fit the pump under the intake plenum where the complicated stock idle control used to be, but im not shure theres room.
Downside is of course i now, for shure, have to upgrade the alternator.

Im the third owner in Sweden. It came to Sweden (MalmŲ) in around 2008 i think. UK vrn can be seen in the dyno video above, if that helps.
Im very interested in any info from the cars past!

Im going the budget way, keeping the stock hydraulic system minus the mechanical pump.
I really like the the stock steering!

Realized i really havent presented the car and my goals with it. I want a true street car with lots of power. Importent to me is; full interior (but not necessarily stock interior), powerful sound system, air condition and stock fuel tank (no fuel cell in the boot).
So when this car came up for sale i had been looking for a GT-R for a couple of years and knew right away that this was the one. It had a pretty big spec list, but no reciepts or anything to verify it. I could obviously see Trust turbos, 24U block, Trust sump extension, Blitz ic, HKS hard pipes and GReddy plenum. But i couldent be shure about Apexi forged pistons and rods or head porting and Trust cams. Those are now confirmed since i took the motor apart, but still dont know about the claimed OS-Giken 1-5 gearset. I could however hear that it indeed had a rattling multi disc clutch (that was slipping). And the power was proven by the video above.
So i bought it and ive never regretted so since! I love my Skyline!

Plans... I am in the process of rebuilding the motor, turbos and clutch. In that process i will adress the known oiling problems with the RB26. Spline drive, high volume oil pump, very much extended sump (+5 litres?) with baffling, bored oil teturn chanels in block, external drain from head, Mines valve cover bafles, enlaged valve cover breathers and extra crank breather in block.
Im going to rev it to at least 9500rpm and boost whatever the turbos can handle, perhaps 1,5-1,6 and 700hp?
In time i plan to build custom manifolds and use two modern turbos, like Garrett G25-550, and boost more power.
I would like to run a sub ten on radials and full interior, making it a true RH9 weapon.
Front Tor-Sen difflock, like Quaife.
At some point i will convert to a DCT. I would like an OS-88 seq, but it is ridiculous money and out of reach for me.
I also like having something unique, like a DCT BCNR33 must be.
On that same thaught it would be fun to make my own cluster.
Regardless, I will keep my Skyline!

Project kind of on hold, my father is building a 640cui -69 Corvette and he is working on the frame using my lift. Meanwhile im ordering parts as money comes in (slowly).
Piston rings for my Apexi pistons turned out to be very hard to get, or even impossible. Gah!
I have however worked on extentions for the sump. In paper so far...
DSC_0882_1554312562969.JPG
Right extension will be bolted to the sump to allow access to front diff.
Aiming for 8-9 litres volume. Will baffle with trap doors and vent the extensions.
Will also make a new cover for the front diff housing for larger volume, temp sensor and fittings for oil cooler lines if needed.
Both sump extensions and diff cover will have cooling fins i think.
Plan was to sell my snowmobile to free some money for the Skyline.
DSC_0877_1554314162160.JPG
But winter started late and ended stupid early so no luck there. Gaaah!
Luckily my winter fun car kept my spirit up a bit.
