Hi guys I'm looking for an engine for my r32 gtr what is the differences between 32/33/34?
I'm looking to source and fit the 6 speed box out of an r34 too

It's a long term project so no rush to source anything till I know

Not a huge amount of difference between them. The main differences:

-Early R32 had a short oil pump drive on the crank, later cars towards the end of production had a longer drive

-R33/34 have long oil pump drives as standard

-R34 has ball bearing turbos

-R34 CAS is different and the cams are slightly different too I believe

-R34 doesn't have an ignition amp to drive the coil packs (same as Spec 2 R33 Gtst)

I'm sure there's other bits that are different or got updated along the way, but that's the main ones

So it would be better for me to take the r33 engine r34 6 speed box and have that combination in my r32?
Instead of spending out more on an r34 engine or buying an r32 engine with the lesser oil pump drives
Turbos I want to uprate anyway

It's probably the route I'd take. I've never done an engine swap so there may be a few other bits to consider but I guess they'd be pretty minor

On a side note, I wouldn't pay extra for an R34 engine as essentially its still exactly the same as an R32/R33

Ok thanks I had a look on here and there isn't much to do to fit the r34 gearbox in the 32 is there a specific list of parts I need to make or get hold of?

putting a getrag in a 32 sure maes is lively but it isn't very cost effective... and top speed decreases thus motorway cruising rpm rises a smige to ;)
