2 years in the making and its finally complete :) 600bhp entirely UK built R32 GTR

Hi everyone

I thought i would finally post up pics of the car as after 2 long hard years I finally feel like i have done everything i can think of doing to my r32GTR

I bought the car 2 years ago through rod bell, since then it has been worked on more times than its been driven and I have spent every penny i have earned over the last 2 years in creating my dream car that has a full spec to match its power and keep it reliable and safe (lol) to drive.

I cant wait for the summer to arrive now







Teaser of the engine bay - 600bhp with 480lb/ft
Perfect for a road car !

These are older pics so there are many bits missing (fuel delivery system etc)





Pics of the custom misano racing seats - real carbon fibre frame and back, fully made in Alcantera, embroidered skyline GTR on the back, 3 point harnesses, fully adjustable and incredibly comfortable



All real carbon fibre mmmmmm







I think I had better give a few shout-outs/free plugs to the people that helped me create this car and put up with my constant never ending calls about what i want doing next........LOL

RB Motorsport for the car itself which was a minter from the start and the full engine build which is as you would expect from these guys - perfect.

Japsalon - Gary for the custom nismo bonnet which looks awesome

ROTA - For making such a nice set of wheels

The Racing Line - New turbos installed and dyno work/mapping on the new spec engine, one of the only North east tuners that are fast earning a reputation as a high power tuning outfit. Great service by these guys everytime !

Atkins Nissan - One of the best bodyshops i know and a perfect job with my paintwork/bonnet etc

Cobra - For the custom made seats made to my design

R32 Combat- His torque split controller which is a definate requirement for 600bhp in the wet

All the people from the GTROC and SOC that have helped me with all the advice and input over the years - an invaluable resource for sure !!

Im looking to get a full mag feature done on the car in the next few months as the home made photos above from a phone camera just dont do it justice !

Hope you like,
Pete

Very nice Pete.
I love yellow anyway, so that makes it even better for me. Those seats look great. Congrats on being a happy owner

how didja get 480 lb/ft torque?? 600bhp is at the flywheel I assume?

I'd say my personal dream R32, although mechanically 98% complete, will take at least six more months to get all the tiny details, such as bodykit addons, and interior tweaking, before I can enjoy the position you're in - being DONE!!!

Congrats on making the dream come true!

btw...get you get my pm - how's the fuel pressure situation coming along?

by the way, the VERY BEST touch I love on the car is...the 'ring sticker. The Skyline and the Nurburgring just go hand in hand, always have, always will...

That's the way of passion, great work mate
Love the yellow colour, looks so much competition . . . . any sexy wheels there.

thanks for the nice comments guys

yes 600hp is at the flywheel, it can go a bit more if the boost is raised even further but im happy with its performance now so no need to go there....

I only wish it was 600bhp at the wheels lol

I have always pondered over spraying the car black (black and chrome always look good) but tbh the yellow has grown on me and it makes it that little bit different i think so its staying for now....

I definatly have had ups and downs over the last 2 years with the car as it has cost me much more than i ever imagined to get it to this spec but now i feel like it is all coming together and was worth it in the end.

Being a skyline owner certainly takes a bit of perseverance through the hard times but there is no other car id rather own than a modded skyline - decided that when i was 10
