I am about to purchase a Skyline R34 GTR that will be tuned to around 750BHP, I have a choice of 2 garages Abbey motorsport whom Mark Gillam has been extremely helpful with his advice or Torque Developments (tdi-plc).

One of the reasons I called Abbey was because of the exellent feedback on this forum, and after correspondence with Mark would be happy to trust them with the car, however, I have also heard good reports about Tdi and again Mark Catchpole was helful with advice. so i am asking Forum members if they have had any dealings with TDi and if so how would they rate? and also who would you recommend for the work?

thank you
Si

Is "Torque Developments" a Skyline/Nissan specialist?

Only reason I say that is that Abbey is, and if you're looking into buying a Skyline with that much power you might end up visiting them quite a bit :) I can't comment on either company's credentials suffice to say that I haven't yet heard a bad word said against Abbey, and a lot of people on this board use them extensively.

I've hav too many bad dealings with TDi.
Just after you money in my opinion.

Stick to Abbey, or indeed any of the others you read about here, just not TDi, ay?

Yes they are, Japanese specialists, are a main HKS dealer and have been doing Skylines since the R31, and also have an exellent reputation throughout europe.

However, I have never seen anyone on this site mention them, am curious to find out if any one has used them, because as you said this would be a relationship with the garage, through general servicing and any problems as well as the bigger engine reconditions every 20,000 miles which a car of that power would need.

Thank you every body tried replying to the personal messages but the 1000 limit is tough on replys if it has already been hit :(
I will be going with Mark at Abbey, I do a lot of work in London so it is not that much out of my way, and there are some great gatso free roads between Newcastle and London:D

Simon.

Do you know Sammy by the way who is on here. He comes from your neck of the woods (Leeds ??) and is a happy R34 owner.

Might be worth giving him a shout.
