My old 25t was being set up for street/curcuit. I had done some basic power mods, but the suspnesion/handling was awesome. Bilsteins, lowered about 20mm, bigger Impul sway bars, some moderate seam welding was also done. Needless to say, it stuck like shit to a blanket. Shame I had to sell it...... still, can always wait till I get another liner and start over again.

My goal.

Cost effective power, with reliabilty being my number one priority.

2530s seems to be the turbo of choice. Not too much power, because that is when you start breaking other components. I have been around cars long enough to know a few secrets from the other camps (American Muscle Car) that I will try on my GTR.

I really cannot start my modding process until I get my car back to the states as far as the engine is concerned, but I will be doing Brakes, electronics,and suspension while overseas.

I am looking to go with Tein HAs, Power FC, commander, turbo timer, strut brace, elecric fan, under drive pulleys, adj cam pullies, water injection, Z32 AFMs, and some R33 Brembos.

If anyone has a better idea on what route I should take, PM me.

with R33 GTS25T built as a street / drag car

04-13-2003, 08:25 PM
High 9's

Reliabilty?...uhh I'm not very good to cars

I've played in the 10's long enough with the Supra. I want to break into the 9's once, as in 9.99 will make me happy, and then I'll probably turn it into a rolling advertiesment for the shop.

Currently aiming to have a reliable and driveable car with loads of power to scare the shit of any thing with 4 wheels on the road or track! And that means between 550-600 rwhp or thereabout!
Ultimately, and of course, money permitting, aiming to race my GTR in a support race for the JGTCC over here. That means converting it into a full race car.

04-17-2003, 07:22 AM
Car's in the shop to get some new, stuff eventually I may take it up to 600HP but right now I am just trying to keep a safe everyday car. Maybe 400 to 500 hp for now. Still not sure wether or not to get some body kits.

I am jw does thread this apply to me since my car Technically drive an American Skyline the G35?

How do I vote?

My personal choice is a fast road car - like my R33 :-)

06-24-2003, 12:10 AM
I missed the poll (haven't been able to check AF for ages :( ), but the goal I guess would be called performance/street. There's only so much you can use on the road without running afoul of The Man, and/or risking injury to yourself /others. Anyway.....

Currently cat-back exhaust - without the cat - and pod filter = 173kW at the rear wheels. Need front-mount intercooler so the turbo isn't working so hard, and straighten out the strange factory two-stage boost (though I probably won't raise it significantly), and I'll be damn happy. Probably the best mod so far was just recent: Toyo T1s Proxes. :D :D :D Car now sticks in the wet just the same as the dry :D

06-24-2003, 02:59 AM
Welcome back ol wilie one!

I've edited the poll to count your vote :)

street / drag!

07-24-2003, 11:19 AM
a good performer... not interested in high power, more handling, decent power and mild looks.

til i upgrade to the R34 GTR

07-25-2003, 01:29 AM
The GXi is a daily driver,and a step up from the heap of sh*t that it replaced.Can't see myself doing much more than a very mild makeover,unless it needs major mechanical work in the near future.If I had to replace the motor,I might consider turning it into a sleeper....:cool:

08-14-2003, 02:03 PM
my goal for the skyline, not much, just for it to take me from point A to point B, to be of service when i need it, to be one of the quickest nicest grocery-getter's around, to be a full on track beast when i want it to be, to be a all-round beast!:smile:

08-14-2003, 02:08 PM
...also for it to be stylish and quick when i'm going to point B, i also want it to be one of those car's that are parked and look like if they are going fast even though they are still,i want people at the track to say OH SH~T !!!

08-16-2003, 11:09 PM
My goal is not to wreck it!

I'm not going to go too nuts with mine. It's totally stock at the moment and future plans are exhaust, pod filter, intercooler and maybe boost controller. Apart from that I will be focusing more on looks and sounds.

08-26-2003, 08:27 AM
When i get my R34 GT-R, it will be for street only! Yes, i'll sup it up a whole shit full, but only for the street.

09-02-2003, 08:30 PM
Hey Guys,

Well I guess my aim is for a street rocket which can go down the 1/4 occasionally in the mid to low 11 sec bracket.

Mods to my 95 GTR Vspec are as follows:

HKS 2530's
HKS Dumps
HKS Adjustable Cam Gears
Power FC Pro with Boost kit and H/C
Twin Plate Clutch
Full exhaust
700cc injectors

Z32 AFM's and pods going in next week. Current power with stock afm's is 320hp at all 4 wheels on 1 bar. With 1.4 bar and the new afm's we are aiming for over 400hp at the rears which should be good enough for an 11 second pass...



09-16-2003, 04:13 AM
I have reached my goal already. 420ps. Just enough for street and reliable.

05-17-2004, 04:14 AM
the 25T will be done for street / show with a bit of performance thrown in for good measure

06-10-2004, 04:22 AM
I'm shooting for around 500hp. Nothing too crazy...injector upgrade, MAF's, RS580's or 2530's (haven't decided yet), fuel pump, stage I cam, 2 core radiator, and that's about it. The car was set up really well before I even bought it. My wife and I plan to just "Sunday" drive it...show it off a little but, not beat the hell out of it - too expensive to fix!!

06-25-2004, 04:07 AM
My goal is not to wreck it!
I should have met that goal for my last car.
This sounds like something I should try with my new one :-)

06-27-2004, 05:01 PM
my goal for my r32 is...to find some sick ass body kit on it.....like a tbo sport front bumber with a jun grill...
also plannin to find a hks 2530 (used) and install them in the far future :grinno:

07-07-2004, 04:48 PM
Dmination of the YOKO. I wanna be quicker the the camera shutter on the speed traps. I think I just need more stickers. :o Just playing! Planning to get a dyno before I decide what I need to do. Was thinking of getting rid of the twins and get a t-78. Bassically wanna do the qtr in the low 9's.

09-06-2004, 11:11 AM
My goal is to finally get it from MotoRex, all this waiting is old.

09-08-2004, 04:06 PM
i want my r32 GTR to be street/circut

11-15-2004, 10:25 AM
If i had a Skyline i'd probably make it a Street-performance, it's a really good looking car and with the AWD it dominates drag.

06-29-2005, 02:38 AM
Getting it to run, I bought a 99 Gt-r for 11,000 bucks.. It was from a police auction it was wrecked really bad they said that it was in a high speed chase and he lost control and ended up un a patch of woods. The whole front end needs replaced and some of the rear. I couldnt give up the chance of having one. So i hope it will be running in about 9-10 months. Until then ill just drive my eclipse rs.
