Man, I would really like to get the R34 someday

Added 16 seconds later:

# MACKAY :
OSAKA'S FINEST

-✘ Ah, here we go again. It's been almost a month since last update, so I guess it is time to show some things? ✘-



-✘ First things first right? As most of you already know I bought a GTR, and no it's not a R35 as most of you thought in first place. Last year around the same I was sitting in a 1000HP R34 in Tokyo, year later I have my own. Yeah, I bought myself a 2001 Nissan GTR V-SPEC II. Yeah, you read that right. This car is the most expensive car I have ever owned, all bought in cash, no loans or something like that, thats why I said I am making probably biggest financial mistake in my life, but so far so good haha, I still have roof over my head and food to eat, also wife did not kicked me out either. So lets talk about the car itself right now. It is completely original V-SPEC II still in its original Pearl White color, no rust issues, no dents or scratches and only one owner before me which took care of the car perfectly, only aftermarket thing on this car is Nismo bodykit which I fucking love. The car currently has 38'thousand kilometers on it's clock, which is low enough in my opinion, don't get me wrong, I am not one of those who won't drive their car because of mileage or because to not ruin the cars value, I am going to DRIVE this thing anywhere anytime and whenever I want to, it is my daily driver, my track toy, you name it, I do it with this car. Suspension is all original too, no coilovers or lowering springs, but I ordered something which is "good stuff" and now I am waiting for it to be built, will tell about it later. The car sits on original BBS LM R19 wheels. So yeah, basically the car is untouched since it left the factory, or it was up until now as I already did some mods to RB26, but I can do whatever I want right? Good things are coming for this car. Anyways, I will talk about those mods later. I let the pictures do the talking right now. ✘-




-✘ As you guys know while visiting Tokyo I have been to Tsukuba and yes I took the R34 with me. Had an amazing time, got used to the car, learned to push the car to its limit and so on, which led me to the best personal time of the day - 1:05.37, now the goal is to drop my time to 1:03 or less for the next time. Remember me saying that I could have bought a new 911 or something similar? Coincidentally there was a new Porsche 911 Carrera S on the track, so you know what happened next, we were battling it out for half of the time we were on the track, believe it or not he stood no chance, the only advantage he had was on straight aways, obviously driver experience played a big role too, so to sum that battle up it was big balls in GTR vs cocky rich middle aged man who could have afforded to crash his car. Anyways, GTR lived to my expectations and even more. ✘-


-✘ Enough about GTR right? My "new" S14 undergone major changes too. Long story short the car was repainted to white color, also TCIII's were powdercoated to black color too. As for exterior mods I did not change anything apart rear bumper, I couldn't stand that ugly D-Max rear bumper and got a stock zenki bumper instead, obviously I had to mock up a diffuser for it to look good. Also Origin rear spoiler was put on. So now the S14 looks how I want, not a puzzle anymore. The next thing on the list will be a roll bar or simple roll cage for it. Oh and by the way I also changed the engine, oops.. The engine I chose might disappoint some of you but it is my car after all. ✘-



-✘ Yeah your eyes don't lie, I went back to the SR20, but this time to the best one out there. I bought a S15 Notchtop SR20DET with few little upgrades, it has TOMEI exhaust header, HPI downpipe and HPI intercooler, also it was rebuilt recently. Oh and I also intalled a KAAZ 2WAY LSD in the back. So now we have a solid 300HP SR20DET inside the car. You guys know that I am Nissan guy, so Toyota engine inside a Nissan is a fucking crime imo lol, it's a Nissan house after all. :rolleyes: . ✘-


-✘ Mandatory picture of the situation in the shop. April was very productive month for us, did a lot work, sold many things and so on. Also as you can see we managed to squeeze six cars inside and there is still enough place for few more, we really need to bring our Time Attack RPS here too, soon, soon.. Oh, there is another GTR in the garage too, and no it's not mine haha, it is owned by one of our guys, fun fact - I was considering to buy it, but I went for R34 instead and he bought that R32. Dream garage shaping nicely. ✘-


-✘ The S2K might be sold soon as I am looking for new owner for it, basically this car was built for STC88' competition but because everything went dry af, there is no use of it for me, also somehow my drift cars turn into very expensive builds, I really need to get something cheap, no more 20k drift builds haha. ✘-


-✘ I said that I will tell about GTR mods a little bit later, so here it is. I installed a HKS Oil Cooler, also replaced the OEM water and oil pumps with N1 ones, the OEM exhaust headers were replaced with TOMEI EXPREME ones, in addition TOMEI outlet pipes were installed too. Last but not least I installed a TOMEI EXPREME TITANIUM CAT-BACK EXHAUST, I might go for a full exhaust later on. And the best part.. Tein Japan is building me a custom coilovers which you can't buy off the shelf, especially for R34, they are equivalent to Super Racing ones, but in reality they are even better. I had Super Racing's in my purple 350Z so I know what to expect. Can't wait to install them, it should be finished and sent to me sometime next week, it takes like a month for them to build it. So yeah, GTR is coming along nicely. I also might be looking for another set of wheels, which will be my Track/Racing wheels. ✘-


-✘ Thats kinda it, I will try to be more active again ( knowing me, it is unlikely lol ) as a lot of cool things are coming, S-Chassis meet and etc. I need to get together with guys sometime too, as I haven't seen many of you for a while, maybe meet with GTR's or something else. We will come up with someting. So yeah, peace, till later guys. ✘-

Hard Hitter

-✘ Well, Shit.. A lot of things have happened in the last two months or so, so where do I begin ? ✘-



-✘ To begin with first thing I want to talk about is our Family Car Spec BMW F11 as it undergone few changes, it went from bland white wagon to to not so bland grey wagon, so because my wife really likes grey colors in general, I jumped onto hype train and wrapped the car in the hottest color of the 2018, Nardo Grey. I been thinking about wrap on this car since I bought it, so I finally did it. I also installed H&R LOWERING SPRINGS and in addition to that I changed the OEM wheels to R19 AMG EMR2 ones, it is kinda "Mercedes Benz" wheels, but they look good on any car imo, but if anyone have a problem with that, just know that I been putting wrongs wheels on cars as long as I remember.. #throwback Altezza Gita *cough*.. So yeah, even tho BMW is daily beater, I still do cool things with it. #breakingwifescar ✘-



-✘ Another unexpected thing that happened is that we sold our time attack RPS.. Actually we came down to this decision as we over estimated ourselves with this build, not because of driving, engineering or mechanical skills we have, neither money was a problem, but because no matter how much we tried we were no match against factory teams or other privateers, especially in 2018 when most of drivers are either crazy rich or are backed up by big manufacturers, have any of you even seen the new HKS time attack car? That shit fucking FUCKS.. Even tho were underdogs since day one we managed to achieve amazing times around Tsukuba and so on, because of this car a lot of new connections were made and so on, main reason we got sponsored by Toyo Tires, even tho we get basically nothing. That was a good run, but a lot of money, time and whatever, you name it, went into this build. I'm not scared to say that we took an L with this build, but life continues and I am already generating new ideas, maybe we will try circuit racing where every car is same spec and only drivers skills play a major role, we will see. Before you start asking, the RPS is in Russia, Moscow right now, because as always our mutual connections ends here, guys from Динамика34 ( Dynamics34 ) sourced another company which I'm not going to disclose here that wanted to buy our RPS, so we shipped the car, and two weeks later we came to Moscow for a week ourselves, helped the guys setting the car, did some testing with them in NRing Circuit ( Нижегородское кольцо ) and so on. The new owners have a lot of plans for it, and because our RPS is such a versatile platform you might even see it competing in drift evens through europe. ✘-



-✘ Business things aside we also did some "basic" tourists activities, like sightseeing and so on, and I can say that Moscow is one hell of a city, but as you know us, we did it in style, guys from Dynamics34 got us a ride, so all week from hotel to their garage and around Moscow we were driving in Porsche 993 Turbo with GT2 bodykit on it.. Not the type of car that I am used to but ohh man, what an experience driving such thing. Thanks to them for trusting us with such car, but that was not the problem as we are obviously professional drivers, right? Also the people in Russia tries to avoid such expensive cars and keeps distance, so no worries haha. ✘-


-✘ Most of you probably already saw that my R34 undergone few changes too, so to keep it short and simple let me tell you about new mods. Probably the biggest and best upgrade it received is Endless big brake kit - 6pot F:355x32 and 4pot R:332x30, such upgrade was a must, because I am already working on new engine, and no the GTR is not in pieces right now, I bought brand new GT-R N1 Performance Engine Block and I will be building it from the ground up while still driving and enjoying my GTR, not to mention performance benefits that new block will provide, but shhh.. I am not going to talk about upcoming engine, am I ? Another cool thing that I installed is GACHIRRI SUPPORT for better body rigidity as I am keeping it without a cage for sure. Performance things aside, I also installed Carbon fiber trunk and Seibon Carbon Fiber Universal GT Wing, oh and lets not forget Carbon fiber interior pieces and Carbon Fiber GT Cooling Panel which cost me a fortune, never thought that I will be spending money on such things but here I am, I guess I was bitten by a carbon bug. In addition to all the mods I also installed Nismo speedometer, Black Alcantra roof liner and MOMO MONTECARLO steering wheel, just like I did in my old GTR, I just love those wheels. Also as you can see the car is now lowered as it sits on Tein Super Racings because I finally got them. BBS LM wheels got painted in black and dressed up in R888's. If I am sure thats everything that I did? Oh, wait, I also installed Apexi Power FC from Art of Wheel, so now engine is pushing 400HP after remap. Slowly, but surely GTR is evolving. ✘-




-✘ While driving in Tokyo during my "weekend getaway" I also got spotted by Cars Of Tokyo website or whatever that thing is and damn, all I can say is that my GTR is such a beautiful car. ✘-


-✘ S14 that I own is basically a garage queen, the only action it seen was when Radcoon took it to S-Chassis meet to Tokyo in May.. So when Radcoon was visiting me for a custom roll cage for his Trueno last month I offered him to do a shakedown run trough the loop because I know how much he liked driving my S14 during the S-Chassis meet, also I already trust him with this car as I saw how he took care of it during those few days, so what could possibly go wrong, right? Perfect opportunity to test S14, because no hard driving were done after SR swap. And to your surprise it was keeping up with the R34 pretty well, I'm definitely happy with the results. In the end it is just a beautiful show car capable of doing race car things and I am sure that I will keep it that way, as a demo car of our workshop or something like that. ✘-



-✘ Well.. Whose car is dis? Because the S2K is now long gone, I bought myself another car for fucking around, and yeah it is four door, and no it is not a JZX as most of you guys thought, I went with other car as it seems that everyone owns one now, but what can I say, chasers are amazing cars after all. So I bought a stock ER34, and yeah that car which I posted before as preview wasn't my GTR. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It is a 1999 Nissan Skyline 25GT-V which means that it has RB25DE NEO with 200hp under the hood, also it is manual as well. I will try to keep it NA for a while as it is more than enough to get sideways, remember my E46, I was doing tandems with 11K with even less HP, so it is not a problem right now. Also as you can see I already modified it a little bit. ✘-


-✘ When I bought the car it was abso-fuckin-lutely stock in and out, so I changed that. First thing you noticed was probably "R34" front, long story short we made a fiberglass copy of my GTR front bumper and modified it a little bit, so the end result is Nismo x ZTune front bumper mix, of course the quality is on the low side, also you can see that it does not fit flush with fenders, hood and etc. I also modified front fenders, they were widened by good old roll method, I also made some "vents" on it with the help of angle grinder, welding machine and of course body filler. In addition to those mods I also bought "no name" side skirts from UpGarage and fiberglass replica of Tomei headlamp air intake. I guess that is everything for exterior mods. Lets talk about "performancey" things, I guess it is obvious that I ditched stock wheels and bought a set of Work Meisters, this time a genuine ones, because it is JDM car after all duhh. Also the brakes from my GTR were installed into this car for better braking power. Other things that I bought and installed is - TANABE FRONT STRUT BAR for better rigidity, CUSCO Negative upper fornt arms and CUSCO Adjustable Rear upper arms for camber adjustments, NISMO Rear lower arms together with NISMO Rear suspension link set, but the best thing that I installed is HKS HIPERMAX III coilovers, If I am correct 11K runs the same coilovers in his JZX, right? Interior is still intact, I only replaced front seats with Zeta's II and installed Nardi steering wheel. Also, OEM diff was welded as usual and Shao's handbrake was installed. I guess thats kinda it for it. All I can say now, after I had couple of "street" sessions, is that I am more than happy to drive this car, probably the best drift car I have owned, completely different world coming from S2K. ✘-


-✘ Ahh, photo of situation in garage as usual right? What a coincidence that every car that I own is white, BMW is white under wrap too haha. Anyways we are still working Shaos GT86, servicing other people cars and so on, currently we are doing things with a Porsche which is completely different world for us, but I'm sure we will figure those cars out sooner or later. ✘-


-✘ So yeah guys, thats kinda it for this update, a lot of shit happened, and I am sure that even more things will happen soon, if anyone needs anything from me, feel free to come to my garage or contact me, also I would really like to do a meet or something. So yeah, I might stay on the low right now and will go back to doing my thing but we will see, peace guys.. ✘-

Man, still if I think about that day... I can't stop smiling. As you know I got lot's of love for that thing. Even for a Nissan ! :D
The Skyline looks sick. And everyone who visits Osaka should stop by MACKAY's garage. It is a great place, got great cars and all the guys are simply great.
What was the phone number of your front desk lady again? ;)

I also thought it was your GTR in the first pic! :P Well you got a ER34 with a GTR front end so how could i know? I didn't expect you would sell that S13... seeing it in person once, i can say that was a crazy time attack build with lots of potential but there is just so much competition! Hope that the guys in Russia make it even better. BMW is looking good too, even if Mercedes wheels might seem wrong to someone haha. Same goes for your ER34, but what's wrong on this one in my opinion is the rear bumper cause the front and sideskirts are way lower.

Hell yeah man! Also thanks for good words about my workshop and cars man, it really means a lot to me!
Ahh, I think you misunderstood that joke about "front desk lady" haha, it was friend of ours, get your ass over here and we will introduce you to her lol.

# Soju : I've been waiting for this so long. So nice collection of Nissans ! :)

And I am sure it was worth the wait, right? Thanks a lot Soju, you guys doing amazing job with Toyota in Korea too! :thumbsup:

Mhm, never knew that, that might be true haha.

Same goes for your ER34, but what's wrong on this one in my opinion is the rear bumper cause the front and sideskirts are way lower.

Yeah, I guess I tricked a lot of you guys haha. Eh, we did what we had to do, it was one hell of a car considering how much went into this car, but competing against others in such category is very hard, but I am sure we will come back stronger than ever someday again. Yeah, I know, but it looks good, ain't it haha, what a coincidence that I always put Mercedes wheels on wrong cars, if you remember or know my ex Altezza Gita, it was rolling on Benz wheels too lol. You are right, ER34 needs rear bumper ASAP but I haven't found anything I like, ( actually haven't really looked for one lol ), so you can say it is already on my to do list, next mod for sure. :rolleyes:

# 11000rpm : Nice updates as usual brah, lets do our tandem sesh again later this year!!!hahaha
And yes, I used to run HKS Hipermax coils then but changed into Stance XR1 coils with springs slightly cut :)

Deal! Can't wait till you come to Japan again haha. Now all I have to do is patiently wait and continue preparing my car for such activities lol.
Oh, alright, I missed that somehow, I guess I am going to stick with Hipermax ones for a while now, no need for expensive stuff right now. Also thaaks fam. :))

# ErwinFenyvesi23 : Sick cars as always ! Seeing your R34s makes me go and buy one for myself! Maybe one day I'll own a super clean GT-R... Also , that S13 has some crazy ass aero on it ! I really love the look !

Thanks a lot man! Of course you will own it someday, it might take time, but I am sure you will manage it, or you can buy a GT one for decent price right now, but before going that way don't forget to contact me, I am always down to help while inspecting the car and so on, also I know some in and outs of those cars, so yeah. Thanks man!

Thanks man! The only thing you should do is black roof liner, and better do it yourself and save some money by re-wrapping it in alcantra yourself. And as for the carbon pieces, only if you really want it and can afford such "useless" pieces haha, idiot me but who cares lol.

I am gonna take you on that Sir! As I basely just crashed my AE to have a excuse to go to Osaka.

I arrange some sort of transport for the AE soon as I simply ain't got the experience to make sure it is okay for a rebuilt. And I know you guys have.
See you soon!

Thirty Fours


-✘ Oh, look whose here again. Short update on what have happened and what is happening these days. Firstly lets talk about my ER34 as I did some things to it as I came up with few ideas while talking with the guys last week, by the way thanks Radcoon and Erwin for good time, come here more often! Anyways back to the point, I went back to "OEM" front fenders because the ones I modified were fucking shit in my opinion, so I got a pair of these from UpGarage for just thirty bucks, also as you can see I got a "new" aero parts for it, I ditched the "Nismo x Ztune" fiberglass front bumper and bought cheap fiberglass "BN" copy from UpGarage, oh I bought rear one too. So no more out of place look. I also modified the rear muffler, cut original exit and welded two pipes, I also heat treated them for "hot boi" look. Now all I need is to repaint the car, so it's one color again. ✘-



-✘ I am sure you are wondering about rear seats, ay ? Yeah you guessed it right, I stripped the rear seats and mounted two bucket seats, also Zeta II's, I am 90% sure I won't be getting a roll cage or going turbo, so why not make it fun, four door drift practice car which also could be a "drift taxi" on a track days, anyone wanna take a ride haha? Of course it required some cuts here and there, and obviously a welding machine, but I managed to make everything fit. ✘-


-✘ I also did some showing off "drifting" this weekend, when guys were visiting me, and oh boy, it is such an experience to carry three more people while drifting, I am sure Radcoon and Erwin had a great time in the back seats, because the seats are mounted a lot lower than front ones it means that for those sitting here it feels like lower center of gravity, similar to go kart feeling, I need to experience it myself sometime too haha. ✘-


-✘ Remember when I said that I got bitten by a carbon fiber bug? Yeah.. I got more things for my GTR. I got Nismo style Carbon front spitter with carbon undertray, Nismo style carbon side skirt add-ons and last but not least, rear Nismo style carbon diffuser part. It looks a lot better than all white add ons. Don't ask me how much I spent on these things, it's damn expensive. ✘-



-✘ Probably unexpected but oh well.. Yeah, long story short I bought another R34. Before you ask, it is not a GTR, it is 1999 GTT manual one. The car is completely stock, except that it has good quality FRP Nismo bodykit on it and some "ebay" brand exhaust with muffler, which is a plus in my opinion, especially the kit. My Advan TC3's were also put on. Also zero accidents, nothing wrong with the chassis or body overall, only few paint problems and scratches here and there. Perfect platform for the build that I have in mind. I am going to turn this car into full blown drift car, and I mean it. Yeah, I am going to drift a fucking R34. Originally the idea was to build the four door for drifting events and so on, but after many doubts and thoughts I decided to go all out with two door, I am sure it will be unique and one of a kind, because as far as I remember I have only seen a few "proper" ones, I can count them on my one hand fingers. Give a month or two and this car will be shredding like no other. Period. This car will be a true neck breaker very soon. ✘-



-✘ Also I am sure that most of you saw that I was selling my S14, I decided to let this car go because I bought GTT, so I needed space and extra money for "activities" , also as you guys know me I hate to keep the cars that I don't even use, also I already made a profit with that car after I sold the 2JZ from it, so that's why I sold it so cheap, I am sure that the new owners will take care of her. They picked it next day after I posted it for sale. ✘-


-✘ So thats kinda it guess.. Now I own three cars and all of them are R34's. So yeah, keep an eye open for further updates, I already ordered some parts for it and I should be going to test fit "rocket bunny" kit for GTT soon, also the GTR's engine is in its final stages of being completed so I should be updating soon again. Peace. ✘-

WOAHHH. Owning 3 R34s at the same time, you have reached a WHOLE NEW LEVEL of class! Looks like they're all headed in the right direction too. You're starting to be like @cw_unit on Instagram!

Bro , I can't even tell you how much fun I had ! And as Radcoon said , I did turn a lil bit green and I gotta say , it's hella fun to sit in the back seat while drifting ! I felt like Itsuki in that one Initial D episode when he had to sit in the back seat on a downhill race for more weight distribution ! :)) :)) :))

Mackay , I'm not gonna lie but your garage is absolute heaven ! We really need to do that barbeque thing more more often ! I had so much fun when all of us hanged out !

Thanks a lot babe! :-X
Ohh, it is just beginning for these cars.. :rolleyes:

Thaaaanks man! I am in the world of my own right now lol. Definitely, wait till you see my ideas becoming reality with GTT and GTR.. Oh, haha, I heard of him before, that dude is crazy, owning three GTRs at once. B)

# radcoon : What a collection! Damn! But the ride in those backseats was damn nice! Even as Erwin turned kinda green! Haha!
Will be back in O soon!

I guess it is obvious that I am Nissan guy at heart, all I need now is a 350Z and I will be set, 350Z was the car that started it all for me, so I really want to have one because now I have the possibilities and money to keep one.. It is sad that I had to sell my Z's because of circumstances.. Inb4 I get 380RS by the end of this year.. Oh yeah, thankfully he hold up pretty well and didn't vomit, I might get nauseous myself lol.
Definitely, come here more often!

I am sure that it was a lot of fun! No surprise such thing happened to you after all the drinks and food we had lol. Oh haha, I remember that one! :))

Thanks a lot man, it means a lot to me! Definitely, I have an idea, every Saturday could be an open door day where anyone could join us for BBQ, wash their cars outside and so on, I might make it happen soon, but I need to figure few things out before that. But it will be happening for sure! Come here more often Erwin, the place is always open for you ;)

The look on your face was priceless when I drove into the garage. :)) We will see about that R33 brothers thing, but I am more than sure that you will help me to get this car prepared for what is coming for it. :morncoffee:

Nothing shady is going on here, I don't see nothing suspicious either. :rolleyes:

Ahh, I can't wait too, you promised that you will bring your ex R34 GTT for a cage last year but you never did, so I hope you won't bail this time fam! :))

# ErwinFenyvesi23 : Man , building our R33's at the same time will be so cool! I can't wait to have an R33 battle with you ! >:)

Yeah, it will be cool for a while but don't get too excited about that R33 GTR. :/

# radcoon : Seems like someone is not paying tax but pssst :morncoffee:

The less you know the better you are, didn't you knew that? :rolleyes:
Eh, I ain't showing the full documents of what we pay for, but all I can say is that we paid near 15k last month for rent, bills and taxes combined. :pathead:

Dangerous


-✘ Update as promised, will talk about the things that happened in those few days, almost a week actually. Last time I said that I will be going to test fit a "rocket bunny" style kit for my GTT, and I did. This ain't no genuine kit as there is no real one out there because Miura San haven't designed one in first place since there is probably no demand for it as people keep their R34's clean. But all the cool stuff happens in "underground" scene, right? Small garages doing cool shit which no one knows about. But anyways, the kit is FRP one so it is very light, so we test fitted it with the help of sticking tape. Actually I don't really know if I should go for it as I am having quite mixed feelings about that kit, it is hard to decide with just simple test fit.. I am either choosing between this kit or BN one, but we will see, I might even keep the Nismo kit for drifting activities. I guess I should do the renders of the finished car that I have in my mind to decide, what do you guys think? ✘-


-✘ Another thing that I would like to talk about is that now we have a new member in our team. I kinda took him under my wing, and offered him the job at my place. Most of you might know him, he is Erwin, better known as "ErwinFenyvesi23" here on forums. After we agreed on everything and made sure that he will be set here in Osaka, he moved here and is currently working at my place, what can I say, he is very cool guy to have around, I am sure that he and other guys in garage will get along just fine. Also he didn't came here with "empty pockets", he brought three cars with him.. Yeah, three cars which he is working on himself. A R33 GTS-T which I took to 240kmh while driving it back to Osaka from Tokyo, recently restored Supra and his kinda "drift" car 180SX which he is planning to sell if I understood him correctly. Anyways, as far as the plan for him goes now, he will help me and other guys working at the shop, will work for himself and so on. Also he really wants to build his R33 and make that car just a good all rounder with decent horsepower under the hood so I will be more than happy to help him and provide the place to do such things. I am sure that he will tell you more about everything he does to his cars in his own topic. Anyways, take a look at his rides, I took those pics the moment he and his cars arrived. ✘-



-✘ Ahh.. Lets talk about that R33 that I posted up before as most of you were, oh fuck, Mackay got another GTR, so let me answer all the "why, how, when" questions. I bought that car, but it is not for me, the same guys which I sold our time attack 180SX to contacted me if I could source them an R33 GTR here in Japan and that their budget is 25'grand. So for the last couple of weeks I been on a look out for a R33 GTR, and I finally found the right one. It is a 1995 midnight purple R33 GTR V-Spec which I bought for 19500, it was a completely bargain considering that it has upgraded Brembo brakes, ARC stuff under the hood, cams which I can't identify without taking the engine apart and few other cool things. But don't get too excited, the biggest minus is the mileage as this car have seen quite a lot, it has 200k on its clock but such thing is not a problem. So yeah, I will fix all the little things before sending the car to Russia, I might even let the Erwin work on it as I know how much he wants R33 GTR. This R33 should be leaving us next week on Monday. ✘-


-✘ The main thing that I really want to talk about right now is my GTR as all my free time and money went into this car and as you guys know I was building a completely new engine for it, and I mean it by saying NEW. I basically spent more than two months building the new RB, sourcing the parts and everything else that went into the engine took most of my time, but it is finally done. Basically I fully built another RB from the ground up, I used new N1 Performance block, N1 cylinder head, all new internals and so on.. So in the end all I had to do is drop the old engine and put the new one in. The original low mileage RB26DETT with few mods will be kept at my garage, as it is completely full engine and nothing apart from gearbox is taken from it, I could let it go if someone offered me a lot of money for it, but I don't expect someone paying about 20'grand for it, yeah I am crazy. ✘-


-✘ And here is the new engine.. Before getting into detail I really want to say big thanks to my my wife for not kicking me out of house once again for spending a fortune on an engine and to the guys at my shop which let me work on my engine at peace without interrupting me, yeah, I built this engine completely alone, and I will be the one to do the tune for it, if I fail I fail, then it will mean I am not worth of calling myself a "tuner". So yeah, long story short it is a fully built single turbo RB28. I really want to write a complete list of the parts that went into it now but I will keep it for a little bit later, when the new engine will be runned in and tuned. The only thing that I will say now is that it is a 2.8l Step 2 HKS stroker with GTIII-5R turbo on it, fyi this turbo is the latest one from HKS and it was released basically half a year ago, if you guess about the power, then google it. ✘-


-✘ I am sure you are really wondering how much such engine have cost me.. Well, despite the fact that it required a lot of nerves and sleepless nights which are priceless it cost me around 35'grand with all the new parts and new block combined, for reference, the engine oil that I used cost me a 1050$ for a 20'liters.. Wondering what kind of oil it is ? It is HKS Premium Pro 100% Synthetic Oil 20W60, so basically every oil change will cost me around 300$ which I will be doing every other thousand kilometers if not more often. Was a such expensive engine a must ? Abso-fuckin-lutely not as I could have went with simple forged internals and big turbo and have an easy 600hp or more, but I really wanted a reliable engine which I can trust, and because of that I didn't cheap out on parts and so on. Basically now I have a RB engine capable of holding about 1400hp, but I am obviously not going for that much, no no. Even tho numbers won't be that high I can say one thing with confidence, it will be one of the fastest street cars in Osaka right now, and comparing my old R32 engine setup with this one would be the same as comparing one finger with a dick, sorry for such expression but thats how things goes. ✘-


-✘ Over the weekend I managed to put the new engine in and connect everything, all the hoses, cables, and basically everything that was needed for it to run. Also the engine received "safe" temporary engine map for running in purposes. And guess what, it started in few first tries on yesterday, damn, I missed that smell and smoke whenever you start a new engine. It is a performance engine after all, so I won't be doing crazy running in process on it. I will keep it safe and easy for first thousand kilometers, and I already know what I will be doing to run it in quickly, I will be leaving to Tokyo in few hours from now, will reach the Daikoku PA, turn around and go back to Osaka, I will try to manage to do this trip in less than twelve hours as I have a lot of work tomorrow, radcoon's RPS needs a cage and so on, what a perfect way to start a week which is already going to be sleepless one, right? Hoping to be back in Osaka by the morning. Eh..✘-



-✘ Also while working on the GTR, the guys at the shop did me a favor and installed new HKS HYPER MAX2 coilovers and Cusco negative upper front and rear lower & upper arms on my GTT, big thanks to them and Erwin. Also I threw my GTR wing on it, might wrap that wing in black as I am currently daily driving this car. I can't wait to start the GTT drift build, but as you know, GTR comes first now. ✘-


-✘ So yeah, thats kinda it for now, no idea when I will update you guys again as I will be having a lot of work this week and setting up my GTR, but I guess I will make it work somehow. I am at the shop most of the time, so if anyone needs anything hit me up. Peace. ✘-

Thanks for everything dude ! I'm really happy to work with you and I'm extremely happy to be able to work in such a nice place ! There's nothing better than working along side with your friends.

I also have to say that it's such a pleasure to work on your cars ! This is a dream come true !

And I must say , 31 grand on a engine ? This is insanity !!! I mean , I never had that much money in my wallet in the first place ! I wonder how much power you'll run through that thing...

Anyways , hurry up and widebody that R34 already ! It's gonna be the sickest thing in Japan I'll tell you that ! :drool2:

Hm... I kinda expected to see the start of a GTR collection.... nah kidding. Well on that new engine. Simply wow! I'm looking forward a lot to hear that machine on Thursday! Also that HKS livery timing and head cover. Pure sexiness!

But, being really honest... the RB Kit. NO! imo
