Just bought my first skyline, which I have been waiting almost a year for the right one to come along. I did want one imported from Japan, however when I saw this I knew it was the right car. Its a 1996 R33 Gtr VSpec in silver.

It benefits from having a engine rebuild by Ron at RK Tuning and is currently running 450bhp, Ron has done an amazing job on the engine, its smooth as silk!:thumbsup:

that looks great!!
Thanks Mook, Im very happy with it! I've had a quick peek underneath and its super clean with no signs of rust, also the strut tops are spot less.

I am itching to take the camcovers off and have them powdercoated candy red :D

And some Nismo mats from Matty32 (Newera)! :D
Lol, the factory GTR ones will do me for now :thumbsup:. I have been thinking about taking the front carbon lip off and replace it with a colour coded one. Also I will be purchasing a Nismo bonnet lip for it and colour code it

Had a good day at MGT Racing, both Mark & Garth inspected my R33, and i'm happy to say that I've bought a minter. The under side is VERY clean and all the chassis etc is all straight and all nicely under sealed! Mark was very happy with the state of the car.

I've got a small oil leak coming from the gearbox, which Mark quickly rectified as the boot under the gearstick, so I'll be sorting that out. Apart from that its all perfect.


Nismo Speedo.

one of Marks R32...

Few pics of the progress.. who rebuilds an engine and doesn't have the camcovers done?* :D

As you can see It's got very clean untouched strut tops which is also another reason I bought it.

Camcovers stripped. what a task this was! Off to the powdercoaters tomrrow along with some brackets which I thought I will have done at the same time.
