Rob's '97 R33 Skyline (38th)

Post by Corbon »

Owner: Rob
Make: Nissan
Model: 1997 ECR33
Engine: RB25DET
Capacity:~2500cc
Power Adders: R34 Turb, 10psi wastegate actuator, adjustable exhaust cam gear, crappy front mount
Hardware: Jaguar 0.7 + Custom adapter to factory enclosure/connector to make it a plug in affair

Image

Fired up by accident while cranking to check timing offset. Turns out the timing was close enough and the injectors were plugged in after all...

Many thanks to all who have contributed to the project and my setup. Special thanks to Fred for the hours of help.

Videos to come...

Congratulations, mate! You're a star! More than happy to help guys like you! Thank you so much for letting me drive it!!!! Stoked. I'll have to have another play once it's tuned and you've fitted up a proper LSD to it ;-)

Vids to come, soon. Probably tomorrow! :-)

Current logs are quite confusing. Will wait until there is a wideband on it before we try to figure that out, though.

Should find an open one that matches your flanges and attack it with my MIG as a temporary measure ;-) I drove mine around on the street for a year like that. Was good. Even got through one WOF :-D Put the shimmed viscous in later and never liked it much. Was OK when the load was even, but not otherwise.

I'm surprised how little love this thread has gotten. I guess it's American summer!

Well we don't have skylines over here. But the decode can apply to the different 4 and 6 cylinders we do have here that use it. the 240sx and the 300zx, etc

I'm just jelly that it's a Skyline because driving one in the States--something I'll never get to do, let alone own one--would be instant cred karma. Jelly aside, I've been following this intently and think this make a great poster car (literally) for FreeEMS.

Congrats! More unlawful displays-of-power videos, plz.

Aitor, no flames/fuego, pero/but this might help you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bt8UG6WrpYQ

Jeff, you can legitimately import early R32 models now. They're my favourite, but the front suspension is a bit crappy reliability wise. R33 and R34 have that fixed.

Hentai, all of these style wheels have subtle differences which wouldn't work with the original code, but Rob and I have worked together to fix those issues, so we should be home free to run any of them now. I have a mate with an S14K but his engine is in pieces. I'll try to get him to put the thing back together for some testing :-)

10/10 for Rob on this one! Well earned! :-)
