From memory, doesnt the R32 have a hydraulic retracting diffuser at the front behind the bumper? You may find it gets in your way a bit. Not 100% sure, as i dont have a 32.

Like i say, i'm not 100% sure, i just seem to remember some sort of hydraulic spoiler, maybe active at certain speed?( cant remember) but it may interfere with an aftermarket bumper. Need a reply from a 32 owner really to confirm.

People are more than welcome to turn up when they like, but officially about 2-ish

I've got an R32 GTR and havent noticed any hydraulic gizmo's. According to the workshop manual, to remove the intercooler, you only need to remove bumper and bumper support. The intercooler should then be free to come out after removing a couple of bolts. You can get a free copy of the manual either on here or SOC IIRC.

Your talking about the MKIV Supra TT that has a speed retractable front splitter.

Just looking through my owners manual and it does look like some models (GXi,GTE,GTS) had an option called a 'GT Spoiler!'. Seems it has 3 positions and an auto mode which makes it deploy over 70kph. Learn something new every day, mind you, only got the manual yesterday :squintdan .

No, definately a 32, as i've seen it on a friends model R32 GTST. As Tarmac Terror has just stated above, some models had a hydraulic front splitter that cut in a certain speeds
