Nissan Skyline GT-R Roadtrip Tools

Nissan Skyline GT-R entering the Corkscrew at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
Several people have asked about road tools, or a kit to keep in a Nissan Skyline GT-R. These are 25 year old vehicles.  Please at least handle all the maintenance before you start out on any 1000 mile road trips, but these would be some things to include for your trip.  What we normally carry with us for tools, is probably overboard for most. We have had lots of track experience, and lots of these tools have saved us.

CLC Toolbag
This toolbag weighs about 49 lbs.  It is constantly being added to, and some things removed. With what is in this bag, I can fix nearly anything I need to at the side of the road, or the track. If it needs more than what is here, I probably shouldn't be fixing it either place.

Mile Per Hour Speedometer - Speedo in MPH for R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R

200 mph R32 GT-R Speedometer

Speedo Conversion Solutions contacted us a while back about MPH speedo face conversions for R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R.  A Kilometer speedometer is just a minor annoyance to some people, is a big deal to others. Speedo Conversion Solutions has come up with a number of faces, styles, and colors to suit nearly anyone. Along with the speedometer, they also have done the center three gages.

The face options depend on the original speedo. The OEM gage is 180 km/hr or about 110 mph. NISMO has at least two options - 260 km/hr and 320 km/hr.  Other brands have 300 and 340 km/hr speedometers.

Check out some of the pictures of a cluster we had them do. The prices for the faces are really reasonable, starting at $60.    If you need a new speedometer cable, we have them for sale here.

World's Fastest and Quickest Street Radial GT-R - Rev 2 7.45 @190 mph

Another day, another quick time.  R32's in Australia are in full on battle mode.  Who is going to be the first into the 6's?  Is it possible in a R32 chassis? Aero is going to be a big factor.  Both the Heat Treatments, and RIPS R32 both have aero fronts, with water/air intercoolers.

Step it up my New Zealand countrymen. Can't let the Aussies get too close. Time to turn the wick up.

PSA : Nissan Dataplate : Blueplate : Engine Displacement is Not the Year of the Vehicle

After several panicked calls from customers, and others asking why the car we sold them was a 1998, we have had to make this handy little picture.

1998 indicates displacement of the engine, as can be seen by the cc. RB20DET, 2.0 liter, or rounded up from 1998 cc to 2.0. The next line indicates transmission, in this case FSE71C, 5 speed, and the RC43 indicates 4.3 gear ratio.

The SR20 is also 1998 cc of displacement. Do not try and call us out on a car, saying we are selling a non legal car, because you don't know the difference between 1998 cc, and a 1998 vehicle.

Please stop making this error.

NISMO Carbon Air Guide for Brakes - R32 R33 R34

NISMO is still developing parts for these old chassis. Even though it says in the blog - "high selling price".

These help channel air at the brakes. On the Vspec R32, R33, and R34 Nissan used some rubber flaps to direct air at the brakes. We don't think this is as good as proper ducting at the center of the rotor, but lots less likely to fail. Still a fragile carbon piece hanging sort of low off a car.

R32 GT-R Chassis Bracing

A stiffer chassis is better, right?  Car manufacturers always talk about chassis stiffness on their latest and greatest cars. .  The basics of chassis stiffness have to do with flexibility in the body or chassis,  suspension movement, and the suspension vs the chassis absorbing the road or track irregularities.

This is what Mr T had to say about the R32 chassis...

R32 GT-R NISMO strut tower bar
"R32 front chassis is weak in bending and torsion. Add as much bracing as possible , such as Do-luck sub frame connectors and HKS Kansai Kit "

If you have worked on R32,R33, and R34 GT-R, you can see some of the improvements that did to the chassis to stiffen them. There is a point though, when you wonder if all the weight you are adding in bracing is worth the extra benefits in stiffness.  Not sure exactly where the point is located.  There are some other options to really stiffen up a car. Things like a roll cage, like spot welding, however those two items really take some work.

Front Strut tower bar

  • Easy to change , 4 bolts
  • Lots of brands
  • Ties the upper stock towers together
  • Came OEM on R33 and R34
Transformation Tuesday

Front Fender brackets
  • Tie the outside of the front struts with the door jams
  • These are placed under the fenders
  • Available for R32, R33, R34.
  • Nagisa Auto Fender brace install

Underfloor brace
  • Ties the right and left side of the chassis, under transmission, with the subframe
  • HKS Kansai
  • OEM R34
  • NISMO R33 install -
HKS Kansai underfloor brace. Ties in frame rail with subframe/steering rack

HKS Kansai underfloor brace

Subframe connectors

Rear Strut tower bar
  • Slightly more difficult to change as the top bolts are under the trunk false wall
  • Lots of brands
  • Ties the upper rear shock towers together
  • R33 and R34 have a rear strut tower brace
R33 GT-R factory rear strut tower brace

Trunk bar

  • Seems kind of an odd spot for stiffening
  • Factory on R34 GT-R and some S15
  • Check out for install photos and driving impressions

Series 3 R33 GT-R Trunk bracing
  • did some research on this additional bracing. 
  • "Additional bracing in the trunk rear floor area attaching the rear suspension mount to the floor in order to improve the car’s rigidity. Said to be the equivalent of adding another strut tower bar, and also has the added benefit of strengthening the rear crumple zone."
