After about 5/6 years of owning a R33 GTR and regretting every day of selling it I am finally back into skyline ownership and man I think I have got myself one of the best!

Some of you all may know it as Rains R32 Deux Ex and I thought it would be fitting to keep that name alive as it was such a special build.

For those of you who don't know the car it is a R32 GTR that was built mainly by Endless in Japan. It's a 2.8 stroked RB with a R34 6 Speed Getrag gearbox and R35 front brakes. There is obviously a lot more to the spec but I will do a full update in another post, this is more a little introduction.

The car has been sat for roughly 5 years in the UK in dry storage and I was in conversation with Rain about it for 2 years trying to buy it and finally that day has come.

During it's time in the UK it spent a lot of time with Bob at Zealou5, one of the notable items (or two more aptly) were changing out the turbos for new Garret water/oil cooled -5s. That of course has put the map out on the car and rather than find a tuning garage to work on the old school ECU I am arranging to have a Syvecs fitting over the coming months.

The car is currently having a general once over along with a service/cambelt/ change.

I have quite a bit planned for this car and will be updating as often as possible. I will pop some photos in a new post. I haven't taken much yet as I was too excited collecting it yesterday.

Congrats, seems to be a serious beast.

He's a really nice guy, either way. I am completely stoked to now own it and hopefully I can do it justice!

A couple more pictures, the amazing engine bay this time and another little update. Whilst waiting for the deal to complete I ordered a full set of original badges as the car currently doesn't have any.

Here are some pictures of it being picked up yesterday. I paid for covered transport which I was very happy for as it turned out to be the rainiest day in weeks!

Funny thing was the truck was a ex-ferrari transporter and the GTR was too low due to the angle of the storage place to go on, so 4 blocks of wood later and it was safely on and away!

Thanks for sharing the pics, love it, really nice build.

Thanks dude, I can't take credit for the build so far but I will be adding quite a bit it myself :)

Big thanks to Matty who sent over a brand new R34 Gearknob to replace the white Nismo one I think is out of place on the interior and some genuine endless dust caps to keep everything in line with the whole "endless" build.

A couple more bits on the way.

I have ordered the expreme Ti downpipe and decat pipe to complete a full ti exhaust all the way from the turbos.

Along with that Matty has very kindly sorted a Fuji carbon spoiler for me which is arriving today/tomorrow so I will update with photos when that comes.

Finally I have ordered a Pioneer Double Din android headunit to replace old school Kenwood in there so I can run the Syvecs bluetooth app for engine monitoring without the need for gauges.

Who are you planning on getting to map the Syvecs? I've have my S6GP here for 2 years waiting to go into the car and the original obvious choice was Ryan @ 2Bar but as he's over in Dubai all the time these days I have to think again....

Best choice looks to be Romain @ Syvecs? and get it done at JM Imports as I am up in Aberdeen and don't want a mental journey to get it installed and set up.

Looks like my old BNR32 minus the Z-Tune style bonnet and red interior. Loved the LMGT4's on 32's, when they were still rare, before Nismo re-released them. Is this KG1 Silver?
The bonnet is actually a completely custom 1 of 1 made of full dry carbon. It was made by Endless and if you notice has a small vent on the turbo side that you would never see on another Z-tune bonnet. Very special!

The Syvecs will be supplied, installed and mapped by a local company called Horsham Developments. They have been very helpful so far in advising the best build.

Jez at Horsham is a great guy, well his whole team are actually. They did all of the work on my 370 S/C and my son-in-laws R34 (nistune)

Exactly my experience, its Jez talking me through it all. My neighbour has a 370z that he takes there all the time and he says they are great. Pretty local to me too.
