JasonO said:Er, GTS ? I thought the R34 variant was a GT-T.
Hmm... I'm trying to get up to speed. I thought Rxx designated the (commencing) year. Also, I don't know the difference between GT-S and GT-T. Lot of reading to do!
some scary stories about after market ECU's and the auto R34's
Proposed mods. include RCU 'from Japan' which I have taken to mean a 'real' one. Now you mention it I'll check.
so I hope you've got a manual gearbox.
It's Tipronic at present. I've been wondering how much torque that box will handle but manual is preferred anyway. Which prompts more questions...
What's the recommended box? 5 or 6? Getrag?
What about clutch weight? I'm 9 stones and out of condition so Cobra-type clutches are er.. out. I had no trouble with the GT-R R32 box so it can be done.
Would the supercharger conversion be replacing the turbo, or suplementing it for low rpm boost ?
I like the sound of the latter if it can be engineered. I'm particularly looking for good torque spread. Something like that Swedish machine reported in current Evo - Koenigsegg - 500+ lbs ft at 2,500 rpm would be about adequate.
I seem to be generating questions at a mean rate of 2.5 per answer - an ultimately explosive process.
