I purchased the car in 2018 after selling my beloved R32 GTR which i had owned for about 5 years!

The R34 GTR was almost stock and the only mods consisted of the following:

HKS Super Turbo Cat Back Exhaust & Front Pipe
TE37 Tokyo Time Attacks 18x9.5+12
Nismo S-Tune Front Bumper
Nismo S-Tune Side Skirts & Rear Pods
Sunline LED Rear Tail Lights
Nismo 320kph Speedometer
HKS Pod Filters
HKS Turbo Timer

All that would soon change:D

You must be the only Aussie going down the 2.8 stroker route :bowdown1:. Don't you have guys chewing your ear off saying the 'RB30 is the only way to go!' or 'for the same price as a stroker you could have Rob @R.I.P.S put his nuts on this build' etc etc...what made your decision on the 2.8? :smokin:

Definitely have had a few people ask me why I never wanted a RB26/30 as there are a few in Aus! I've just always envisioned having a R34 GTR with a 2.8 as my favourite 34's all have 2.8's (Mines GTR, MCR GTR and Z-Tune:bowdown1:)

Im also a sucker for rare jdm and Nismo parts and i'm unsure if things would fit with a RB30 block sitting higher in the bay!

Thanx for the kind words guys! Nice to see a few friends from Instagram here :chuckle:

Before diving head first into the 34's transformation, here are some pics of my old R32 GTR that I sold to make my R34 GTR dream come true! I miss this car!

No Mines exhaust :eek:, easily the nicest sounding exhaust for the Skyline GTR IMO. Even if a little restrictive :)

I was actually offered a Mines exhaust but it was just way to restrictive for my build. Im also not using E85 so I decided to stick with the HKS Super Turbo Catback for now!

Before actually taking delivery of my 99 Vspec I managed to purchase a 2002 VspecII Nur that had unfortunately been written off! I planned to use as many of the Nur items as I could as it only had 40 000km on the clock!

Time to get cracking on building my dream GTR as Nur tax has taken them out of my price range:bawling:

A pic of the 2 GTR's before the swaps started happening

First up was the Mines mirrors, Mines steering wheel and VspecII Nur 300kph cluster!

Here are some before and after photos :thumbsup:

Thnx ETang! Yeah their products are amazing. Ive been in the Mines Demo car and seen some of their full package street cars. I can say all the parts they produce fit like OEM!
