you have really low milage. Mine will have 89000km when i get it and I think it's not bad for a 17 year old car.
Best I yet have seen, is a R34 GTR with 7000km. Like factory new ! But for 66000€ rofl.
613hp on stock is pretty bad ass.
I think i read that Kozo Watanabe said it was good for around 600hp on stock. Baffles me everytime.
When I be bored of my 400-ish horsepower we will see what road I go down, but probably the same turbos you gonna fit in (so i can keep the really cool greddy suction kit )
yeah its amazing what the RB26 can do in stock form. part of it are the modern ecu's though. these days you can set them much more precise. really if you meet henk in real life, he can talk for hours and hours about it. very interesting stuff it is he just goes on and on, hehe great man he is.
the test drive today with my r33 was with brand new oem test coils that pi uses for diagnose. man it run so sweet. i never thought it would run so much better then when i bought it. sounded very healthy damn i really want those okada's now!
kinda sad my turbo's need replacement...would love to drive it now the weather is getting better.
cant wait to get pushed in the seats again hehe
yes she is finally mobile again
today she had a dyno session.
and the results are pretty good for the specs she got!
the fuelpump and fuelpressureregulator arent installed yet because they need to redo the fuellines anyway when the bigger injectors are ordered. so its better to wait for a while with these or else it would be twice the labour.
stock injectors and fuelrail
OEM Coilpacks (yep replaced the Splitfires because they were starting to misfire)
Twin Garret 2860-5 Ball Bearing turbo's
Custom balancer pipe
Trust/Greddy Intake with maf's removed
Nismo Exhaust line
thats about it
mapped on a haltech platinum pro:
542Nm! on just 1.08 bar!
(was 428Hp 482,5Nm)
2860-5's can do 1.6 bar so there is still lots of room to play with in the future
the injectors are the "weak" point at the moment, so they will be replaced by bigger ones along with the fuel rail, fuellines, pump and the pressureregulator. might be getting the Okada coilpacks at the same time aswell. then they can turn up the boost, 550hp should be no problem then.
Looking at that chart. My 300hp BMW weeps in the corner. Must get some turbo's too.
Today i could finally pick the car up again!
Had a great day at Pro Import! always fun to be there on saturday
when i arrived she was already waiting outside
Kevin Go, driver of the PI R33, and the guy that modified my car was just looking for a new race overall so he was not there yet. henk go was though, so had a nice conversation with him and some loyal customers
Later some guys of the Streetgasm club arrived, Streetgasm have organised a tour for modified cars thats going to be 2000km long, thats why the cars are loaded with streetgasm2000 stickers.
look at the face of Henk (ECU Mapper), i think he rather sees a skyline then an Evo hehe
Owner of this STI bought it about 3 weeks ago. very clean car.
a few rides of customers, all of them have interesting specs
Marcello his R33, the one that can be seen in one of the movies in this topic, it now has 660hp!
The R34 GTR V-spec of Maurice, its fitted with a Nür engine. he is founder of the Streetgasm club and organiser of the Streetgasm 2000 challenge.
not much later Glenn arrived with his R33 GTR V-spec, i finally had a chance to chat with him, he has the same turbo's as me, with a few extra mods on the engine. 613hp in his R33 skyline! i asked if i could take a ride in his car to get a feeling of what is possible with these turbo's....totally nuts! that thing goes SOOO fast now i know, 493hp....is not yet enough! hehe
Btw, i also ordered some Okada Coilpacks for my R33, curenntly i have the OEM testcoils of Pro Import because the Splitfires were rubbish. they started to misfire on the dyno so they took them out.
But holy sh!t it goes now! boy do i love these 2860-5s because they installed a balancer pipe there is like no turbo shuffle at all. lovely! and very relaxing to drive on cruise speeds
Here are some pics of the Modifications.
you can clearly see that the Greddy intake piping is modified quite a bit.
they already had the maf sensors removed and replaced by straight piping.
the right side pipe with the filter on it is streched in the middle and shortened on the end to place it lower.
the waterlines have been moved away from the heat and replaced by steel ones.
here is a close up of the balancer pipe itself. it has been heatwrapped and kevin made it so that you can disassamble it easeally if you need to.
he also made a spacer for the intake pipe behind it so that its placed a bit higher, on the right side you can see a bit of the new 2860-5 turbo.
hope you like it, i do!
@ home it was time to give her a good wash and detail the headlights a bit so they are clear again. then i took her out for a spin again and stopped by @ my work for a quick fotoshoot with some cranes on the background. some of you might know that im a mobile tower crane operator, i've worked with pretty much every machine you see in these pictures. you can say its another hobby for me!
last friday i've worked with the crane that sits behind the skyline on the picture below. behind it is a bit older crane, with that one i work most of the time. both are build in the Netherlands by the Spierings company. yup even these are powered by turbo inline sixes the 6 axle one weights 72 metric tonne though.
all the pics can be found here:

Yup. Still a bloody nice car It looks great, and sounds like it goes really nice too, which I'm quite envious of! Here I am putting a ton of work and effort into my little guy to make only around 300awhp!
Call me offically jelly!!
Will read through your lengthy post tonight. But lenghty post + lots of pics = Win
Alright! Fukishima, Genkai, Hamaoka, Kashiwazaki, Onagawa and Tsuruga are in place
mini reactors for my spark plugs lol...
Okada Project Plasma Direct Coils!
Looks nice. When do you get the remapping?
it already has been remapped/adjusted.
it will get another map when the other parts will be installed (fuel pump, pressure regulator, injectors, fuel rail, intercooler etc.) hopefully this winter..
Henk left an usb cable in place thats connected with the haltech.. he knows i will come back anyway lol. he can access it much faster now. no need to remove a small interiour panel to get to the ecu.
we also talked about introducing the gtr to the local zandvoort circuit. doing some laps with Kevin in the passenger seat to give some instructions etc.
they even asked me if i would like to compete in the time attack series aswell! (streetlegal starters class thing)
it has been on my mind for a while so i cant wait actually! then i can finally start to figure out what shes really capable off!
oh btw, last weekend i've met a guy that drove in a Porsche 996 (911) turbo S! he increased the boost to 1.6bar and claimed it had 710Nm...okay...lets do a sprint then to find out! it must have been the most equal match till now. he didnt pull away from me nor did i really catch up. and he had the benefit of a 6 speed gearbox..
cant wait to battle him again! he gave me a big thumbs up afterwards...always nice to get that from a porsche driver hehe i rather see them with a sad face knowing they've lost against a nissan though hahaha.

It's cool when Porsche drivers aren't holding their noses up so high.
Do you still have the analogue G-sensor unit in it?
I've been reading alot about the Doluck Tarzan unit and it really improves the altessa due to being digital and therefor more precise and less demanding on the mechanical parts.
Aki made a nice long review on his blog. ( i guess you don't need the link)
Thanks, but diffrent front end? am i missing something?
its a standard GTR front end without the extra bumper vents and a veilside E-I lip (wich will be replaced by an OEM S3 lip soon because its cracked everywere)
In Europe, the skyline has only been sold in the UK.
Although this car came originally from japan, then got imported in the UK, then to holland.
as far as i know there is no diffrence in front ends (except the original UK models got diffrent front indicators)
Sorry my mistake.
All of the ones that I've seen over here are the GTS-t versions, so our bumpers are very non-agressive. The GT-Rs that we have here (which is almost none) do have the nice looking front end.
My Sky @ Japanese Import Meeting held @ "De Meern" in holland
R33 Skylines! including a rare Sedan, as far as i know there are only 3 or 4 of them in holland.
of course there are always a few that got lost lol, sadly it had lambo doors :/
Wingless R32 GTR anyone?
not so many R32 GTS-T's in holland
Another customer of Pro Import, Maurice. R34 GTR V-spec with a Big Single Nür RB26
Marcello's 660hp R33 GTR
This red R33 GTS-T is one of the most well known skylines from holland, this car got a loooong story behind it. The owner died when he had a lung transplant just before the car was finished. so he was never able to enjoy his skyline in its final form, his brother finished the car for him and still owns the car.
did 441hp on just 0.9bar boost. it will be mapped on 1.1 soon with bigger injectors
R33 Sedan meets another R33 Sedan! this must be at least 50% of all R33 Sedan's in holland. both are originally GTS-4's wich means they have the GTR 4wd system. the black car is completly transformed into a GTR, including RB26DETT, OEM GTR bumpers, fenders, wheels, skirts etc. also mapped @ Pro Import.
R334 front conversion

^We need the front, though I seen it on the forum
Courageous plate to bring to a Sky meet
The sedans are nice, but not my cup of tea, I would prefer a Stagea then
the blue r34 gtr would rape that corvette.
same for marcello's r33 gtr
me, not sure, never got a chance to sprint with a z06 yet.
Well with more than half of the ccm you can still give it a proper run especially at the take off.
And then people say awd is just for winter
