Hi guys ive recently purchased a R32 GTR with a R34 GTR engine in it, love the car but it needs quite a bit doing to it in terms of bodywork and a little bit to the engine. Ive been reading up on here since i was first taken out in a skyline which convinced me to change camps from an Evo VIII MR FQ320 to a 32 GTR, love the power not to keen on the handling but i have recently done a track day with launch motorsport and much more confident in the car now. I understand the basics of tuning but ive never had something this far developed and was hoping you guys may spot something that is missing i don't really want to increase the power currently around 550bhp but i would just like to feel more assured it's not going to pop. Ive been looking into oil coolers and filter relocation kits but not sure what else?

I'll post some pics on the weekend but it needs some rust treated on the rear arches and quite a few stone chips on the front bumper. All in all i think not to bad for a 17 year old car. Thanks for all tips ive read so far, seems like a good community.

If you're looking at an oil cooler a thermostatic take off plate would be a good idea. I plan to plumb one in as soon as I have time/can be bothered.

I love it, powers incredible like nothing ive ever experienced and the handling seems pretty good aswell. Was a bit unnnerved at the start about the rear it doesn't feel as connected as the Evo but getting used to it now and i think ti would be very competent if i tried throwing it around. Lucky guy going for a 34 mate, unfortunatly i was limited between a 33 and a 32 and the 33 doesn't do it for me to heavy and big personally. Would love a 34 one day. Have to work harder first though lol

what power is your 32 mate...

Have always wanted a R34 but a bit worried about trading in and Evo X (400/400) with 9K on the clock and swapping it for a 10 year car...
