Finally getting a few photos together even though I have this car over a year! Im gona put up pics as I find um according to how my little project has progressed.Some of the pics will be crappy as i was too lazy to get the camera while working on the car so the phone was the easy option! Its no mad track car or anything but every gtr is a bit of a project! So il start here with these pics, heres what it looked like when I bought it.
Pretty standard car when I bought it,jus what I wanted 360bhp plus standard interior.



Have a gud few pics of a few mods I done during the year so will post um during the week.

Car ran 400bhp on standard tubs thanks to tdp and robbie.

Anyone fitting 34 brakes to a 32 should flatten this piece with a hammer or the likes as the caliper is a bit bigger. Maybe a hammer is being a bit of a butcher but it does the job.

Not really into mad sound systems just a nice set of speakers, so a set of decent infinity crossovers for the doors wer on the cards. Very tight fit tryin to fit them behind the door card. Unsure should I fit a piece of wood around the speaker rather than the big air gap, would they sound better if I made a wooden seal around them?

The central locking looks aftermaket, wierd thought it was standard. Or maybe they jus fitted it new as it was better than the original locking system.

For some reason allot of Japanese cars need these mods to fit alarm controlled central locking as I believe in Japan car theft crime is less common and so less need for alarms. So the key controlled central locking opereated by turning the key in the drivers door just operates the passenger automatically, and not vice versa.
(so I was told by my alarm fitter anyway!)

I would deffinately get some MDF and make a surround for them. After making one for mine the sound was so much better. There's a template roaming around here somewhere. Just do a search and I'm pretty sure you'll find it.

Nice theory on the central locking foretoes it makes sence too, I feel a bit more educated now!
Turbo jerry, I fitted r34 disks aswell I presume you would have to, And then they bolt straight on. just one job if I remember correctly the front hubs have 12mm holes to bolt on the callipers but the 34 has 14mm bolts so drill out the two mm handy enough job.

The next job for her was to rid of the aircon, iid sacrifice it no probs for the weight saved plus we only get two sunny days in ireland a year and they will be windy enough to keep ya cool!
So the poor ol car looked like this


Plus this made good room for my next little job which was fitting an oil cooler to my oil relocator kit. Mounted it 3 times to get the right spot, worked out nicely in the end, well I think anyway!
