Bought my GTR a little over a year ago and have been mostly keeping it garaged and maintained until i finish my degree.

its in fairly standard form when compared with most and is likely how i will keep it whilst trying to track down some tasty optional extra parts or old school parts and wheels more suited to the car....

current spec

149k km
N1 front bumper
N1 front headlights
Apexi twin filters
Apexi N1 cat back
Apexi down pipe
Mine's strut brace
GReddy Profec B boost controller
HKS turbo timer
Ohlins coilovers
A-Tech final speed 17x10 F+R
Bride Zeta fixed back
Bride superlow rail
EBC red stuff pads F+R
Upgraded clutch and flywheel (single plate rattle rattle style)






first thing i did was get myself a bride rail for my good old reliable Zeta seat...got it off andrew at planet drift...A1 service and only took 4 days to come from japan to my door, just in time for japfest bt:)



so japfest was her first real shakedown drive last year and she got up and down with nothing more than a dent in me pocket....plenty smiles per gallon though :D

not many pics of her that i can find so if i find some ill post them up here







picked up a set of mines turbo elbows for the car and keeping an eye out for a set of mines equal length downpipes to get the full Mine's roar!




not done much to the car over the winter but gathered up a few parts recently

Mine's Motor sports ECU.....raised rev limit and no speed limiter and aimed at cars with breathing mods and raised boost levels, not sure if i will use it as my boost level is stock, but not ruling out a tweak up to 1 bar with a dyno run to check AFRs.



also picked up an IMPUL 913 steering wheel, was looking for something to replace the ghastly sabelt wheel that was fitted when i bought it and was looking for something that was elegant and period correct. These wheels were used in all the top R32 Group A GTR race cars that decimated the JTCC and ATCC racing series.

on the lookout for a original horn button if anyone has an IMPUL one laying around gathering dust.







also picked up a genuine Nismo N1 rear gurney flap / lip for the bootlid again thanks to tedman, needs a slight bit of work to make fit as its made from a rubbery plastic that loses its shape slightly over time and don't fancy drilling my bootlid, double sided tape possibly after a quick repaint.



so thats it all up to date....slow and steady wins the race lol.

all C+C welcome.

thanks guys

the mats are in real good shape cosidering their age...they just need a good clean....there a big lump off fluff under the clutch due to me having to walk past the drier in the garage before i get into the car lol.

but ive been looking at getting a set of checkered mats to keep the originals in good condition.

progress is slow as GTR parts are expensive and im still a student....

Got a few new bits there yesterday for the car in the form of a set of Mine's center gauges. Fitted then straight away and took the car for a quick run just to confirm that it is still boosting stock pressure of 0.6 Bar.



not a great pic of them fitted but gives an idea....



Also picked up new wheels. Got them through JDMdistro so big shoutout to them ( check them out on their site or on facebook for some badass wheels at good prices ). They need a refurb so they will be going either white or back to the standard silver i haven't made my mind up 100% yet so any feedback welcome.

Dropped them up to my painter on here to get them done, he does great work and puts in the extra effort that a regular painter will not as he is an enthusiast like myself. ( owns a badass 180sx amongst other cars )
