Welcome Adam and hope the car is just as good as you think it will be :)
The main problem this time of year is to make sure the car is well protected. generally speaking in Japan they do no underseal cars so that should be the first thing you should think about :)

Hi adam, and welcome.....The forum is top notch for tech info and the folk are friendly (mostly LOL)
I've got a 32GTR myself and love it to bits. Is your standard or has it been modified??
First thing I usually do when I get a car is to replace all filters and oils (g/box;diff etc). I didnt do this when I bought the GTR as I had written proof that 95% of this had been done only a couple of months before I bought it.

A few tips:
DONT run the car over 1 bar of boost unless it has non-standard turbo's...Std turbo's go bang over a bar due to ceramic internals.:nervous:
DO be gentle and let the fluids reach operating temps before booting it :D
DO get the timing set up for the grade of fuel you will be using in Canada. Dont know what octane you guys have in Canada but Japan uses 100 octane IIRC.

Theres probably LOADS of other things I should have mentioned but I'm sure someone else will add to the list.Alternatively use the 'search' button at the top. Its gold :thumbsup:

Enjoy the GTR mate
