I think its been about 10 years since i have been the owner of an R32 GT-R.

(original link here http://www.gtr.co.uk/forum/46706-well-heres-my-newera-skyline-gtr.html#post397852)

*(hence the user name, as i joined here before my links with Newera Japan)

my first, i loved and cherished (newera car) but i was about 20, & had a TME Evo6 at the same time, and the evo was a much better daily driver for my needs so the R32 left after about 2 years of ownership & ended up in sweden. (ironic that the TME did as well)

(the 32 was the gateway for me to meet Miguel & the Japanese Newera team, as well as a lot of time spent in Japan since then, with meeting a number of really cool people along the way :bowdown1: Aki, Dino, etc)


Anyway, lately i have been looking into owning an R32 GT-R

Everytime i travel to Japan and see the GT-Rs going out to customers from Newera JP HQ, i kept thinking, i have to buy one now!

so the search was on, for a Newera quality R32 GT-R, which i could improve in Japan.

i will update this project thread as and when new things happen or new parts etc ordered.

i wanted a dark blue (TH1) R32, with a few bits, but nothing crazy.

The car has arrived at Newera recently and will be undergoing some improvements during 2016.


it currently runs a Trust Intercooler, N1 engine, R34 Turbos etc


so parts ordered this week are:

ARC radiator
Midori shifter
Midori HICAS delete
Carbon Radiator holders & new nissan rubbers
Project Mu Lock nuts
Nismo intercooler pipes
Garage Defend Cooling panel
Nismo mirror cover
Nismo mats
Nismo oil cap
Nismo oil filter
Apexi panel filter
Rocket Dancer Carbon front lip
Rocket Dancer rear spoiler flap
Nismo intercooler surround
Triple Pod (60mm)
Top secret catch tank
Discontinued Nismo fuel cover cap
Cusco numberplate relocation bracket


the plan is... to improve it as a fast road car, nothing too crazy, but sensible

So the car has arrived, and i have a super long list of stuff to do on the car.

its a good example, but i am super OCD lol so il make this my own


current spec was Trust intercooler, Greddy Hard Pipes, N1 engine, R34 GTR turbos & outlets, apexi down pipe, Pro Racer Muffler, NT03 wheels, Greddy rad pipe, cusco brake stopper, & cusco brace. hks gauges, on a pillar and discontinued a pillar pod from Trust. Blitz Turbo Timer & some other bits n bobs. (like some crazy nismo 90s steering wheel, again being binned off, for a OEM Robson retrim)

all of which are being replaced. (nothing wrong with the parts, car drives cool, and are quite new) As are the wind deflectors (I have a new set)

The car has full nismo kit (genuine) bar the rear lip spoiler. it has the skirts, rear spats and front bonnet lip & intercooler vents.


& yes those are 2 big aerial for my navi on the rear window, look like bunny ears...
