  1. Tuning: General
    Hi all I noticed lately I am going through quite a bit of oil, I have checked for leaks etc and can see no signs of any and logged my oil pressure which seems perfectly consistent I think I am getting oil bleed through the turbo exhaust BB seals under WOT max boost as when I shift I get a puff...

    I think it's time to change the Hicas oil. However I couldn't find with certainty what type of oil to use. I have a japanese book that probably explains what type of oil to use unfortunately I don't read japanese :nervous: Could someone translate this to help :

    Dear GTR Members, HKS PRODUCTS PRICE INCREASE NOTIFICATION This is due to the JPY/GBP exchange taking a hit in recent months and not returning to prior rate anytime soon. So if you were thinking, considering, dreaming of buying any HKS parts NOW would be the ideal time to do it. All...

    I took my wheels off for refurbishment recently, and noticed that there is a slight oil mark on the drivers side front driveshaft/diff coupling. Is there an oil breather around there, or does it look like the diff seal is starting to leak a bit? Ideally I'll get this looked at when it's next...

    What grade of oil have you found good for using a R33 GTR for the road? The tuners usually recommend 5/50 or 10/60 but that might be too thick for short trips and slow commutes. Any ideas?

    Hi all Any one else with a standard r34 gtr vspec that has noticed oil pressure dropping under good acceleration in 1st, 2nd and 3rd? No I'm not pumping 600hp at the wheels or anything, just a stock standard vspec. Great oil pressure through the rev range (tested with external oil pressure...

    I've heard the OEM oil pump on rb26's is infamous for being under powered, especially at higher rpm's. I was wondering how true this is and how high of a priority it should be to upgrade to either the N1 pump or other aftermarket pump.

    First of all, appologies. I didn't want to start another oil related thread, but after searching on here all night I couldn't find anything specifically detailing my own problem. Prior to changing engine oil, the pressure gauge sat at roughly 4bar when cold and 2 bar when warm. I was already...

    Finally got round to fitting the HKS Oil Cooler and relocation kit to my car, however I seem to have forgotten which hose’s from the take off plate are inlet/outlet and as it was a pain to fit I don’t fancy removing it to find out which is which. I’ve had a look on HKS Japan website but the...

    I have just got my GTR back from it's 30 month service only to notice that when I start it, the oil level low message appeared. I checked the dipstick which was dry. I have spoken to the dealer and have had the car transported back to them. Obviously I am very concerned about what damage has...

    Hi guys! Does anyone use Fuchs engine oil in their GT-R? The guy where I maintain my wifes' Evo X had nothing but praise for Fuchs Titan Race Pro S 10w50 so I am curious if anyone's using this oil in their GT-R? O

    I've done 1000klm's 'running in' my new Japanese Domestic Market GTR here in sunny New Zealand. Time to give it the full berries methinks. Should I treat it to an oil change first? Mobil 1 presumably? Too early? What about transmission oil? Also too early? What to use? Nissan super-special R35...
