Picked this up a year past in February and loved every minute. Kept the mods very simple so far, I dont plan on lowering or anything because I like the drivability and the early 90s ride height :eek::)

Mods

Apexi induction kit
Greddy intercooler hard pipe kit
Decat
R33 front Calipers with DBA discs
Custom backbox ( To replace the r34 one that it arrived with )
Carbon slam panel

These are some pics from the last two weekends from some photographers. More on my instagram - stu_b_32








Thanks.

A lot of changes since my last update on this thread - although the ride hugely remains the same...

I am looking to start documenting work on the car from now on - I have put together my first ever video, excuse the edit I hope to get better.
Please let me know what you think and hopefully enjoy!

MeisterR suspension works well on them when time comes to change. Replace all your bushes for good new ones whilst you are at it. Many are gone or near gone after 30 years!

If REALLY keen, you can get some billet subframes from Australia........
Change ALL the bushes if stripping rear subframe down.
MeisterR suspension is very good.
Yes to GTR badge.
The jack points do tend to get crushed. Usually because you get a puncture when it's dark, cold and wet........

Slam panel always worth having.
Not sure if the radiator mount rad holes need a rubber grommet on them, one like you use for putting on firewalls for wiring. Rad should be sat on rubber mounts at bottom, clamping at top can potentially cause issues from movement, or lack of.
If still fiddling, the top turbo pipe if you put a "splitter" in it, it helps the turbos work more efficiently and I think gives you a little more power. Do a search on forum, can get polished or ceramic coated (in a colour!!) if really keen.
If not done, consider having injectors cleaned and balanced, they are old!

I think atco is referring to the OEM twin turbo top pipe, you can have a plate welded in to reduce turbo shuffle. I've had one of mine split welded and powder coated black.

Keep them coming amigo 👍😁

I own both an R32 and R35 @SKNAM, and I know @matty32 has aswell as some others on here

Awesome cars, was a game changer for me when I got my first 32.
To put it simply, the cool kids own 32's, so be a cool kid, get a 32 😁
