“True ' Pocket Rocket! '”

Written on: 21/01/2014 by willow7 (1 review written)

Bought my GTi-R in 2000 from a Japanese import auction in Durham. I have never owned a car for this long and rate it as the best all round car I have ever owned. I have competed in motorsport for many years and have used the GTi-R several times in speed hillclimbs and sprints to good effect, several class wins and even an outright class record. To help achieve these results I had the car modified by Norris Designs of Corsham who increased the power to 330bhp and added bags more torque. Always… Read Full Review

“Outstanding performance for the money”

Written on: 24/07/2013

My son bought me my GTiR as a retirement present five or six years ago, as it was becoming increasingly difficult to find sufficient space to park my old Mercedes 6.9 at the local supermarket. At first I thought he must be mad as I had not owned a small hatchback since the 1980s when I bought one of the first Lancia Integrales. A low mileage, early model, the car has been mildly tuned and develops about 310bhp on the rolling road with an impressive 280lb/ft of torque. Having owned several high… Read Full Review

“First Year Anniversary”

Written on: 19/06/2013

Despite the tales of doom and gloom about reliability and repair costs I took a punt on e-bay (2012) and purchased without viewing - £2400. One year/3000 miles into ownership of a 1994 Nissan GTiR (imported in 2003) I consider myself lucky. Driven moderately hard at 10psi boost with FMIC and uprated fuel pump I have had no major mechanical problems. Yes, first gear is a little difficult to select, engine is tappy, diffs whine a bit and everything rattles but it keeps on pulling; although I… Read Full Review

“It's an awesome car, but!”

Written on: 11/11/2012

fantastic car to drive, very roomy, very aggressive hot hatch, looks menacing on the road, however, has a subtle look about it. Owned and loved mine for almost two years now. It is also extremely quick off the line and is a formidable monster. However, it is a front heavy car and prone to under steering has trouble stopping as well. brake upgrade and a excellent set of tires would fix this in my opinion (if I had the money). Mine has also been plagued with reliability issues, during my two… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/10/2009

After being pilot in my cuz's 'nismo tuned' Pulsar, I waited until my 21st to locate a fresh standard import as these are low mileage and more reliable than some random blokes toy.

Although it came with a 5zigen exhaust, tein shocks and prodrive alloys it hadn't ever had the boost turned up... I have since fitted a few trick bits!

As far as reliabilty is concerned, every problem i encountered has coincided with my cousins, so I just put the problems down to the age of these cars rather than… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/03/2009

I have owned my Nissan Pulsar GTiR for only 2 months now and is starting too get the odd wear and tear, new radiator etc as with any other car if you look after it it'll go the distance, mines pretty stock standard at the moment but a recent blitz with a decked out mitsi evo proves that even stock standard it pulls some amazing power and destroyed it threw the 1/4 mile definitely a car you shouldn't under estimate, with the basic mods, e.g front mount, injectors, fuel pump. Good points are… Read Full Review

Great car just got one...yes it's a great car at 7psi....The previous owner had it at 14 psi but got scared...Gear box is definitely its weakest point. It is a real fun car. Handles great. It has great potential... and should be cheaper to upgrade than an Evo. That Evo better be running way over 400hp… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/08/2007 by zap56 (1 review written)

I bought a last of the line 2001 HKS Edition GTI-R with optional "Greddy" tuning package. Standard power for these cars is around 220bhp, but mine rolled out of the factory with 400bhp on standard boost. To cope with the extra power I asked Nissan to fit a Nissan Skyline GT-R gearbox, which also means they had to modify the seating position.

The standard clutch is doing fine so far, and I'm finding the standard breaks to be brilliant. I'm still not sure what oil I should be using, but a friend… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/05/2009

Skyline GT-R box on an Sr20?!! Thats a new one! 1/4mile in under 10secs?! Did ya drop it out of a plane?! 550bhp?! No offence I love my R but I really think your over exageratting a tad! They're a very quick car and def not for the faint hearted but not quite as quick as your making out I'm afraid!

Written on: 09/02/2007 by pulsarboy (1 review written)

My Pulsar had everything done to it: lightened balanced bottom end, HKS piston, cams, uprated brakes, Suspension 17 wheels, Nismo Dog Box and Nismo rear diffuser. I was running 380bhp (no joke) I raced my mate's Lamborghini and had him up to 100mph (and I mean off the line) I was away and at 103 when he started catching. Any Pulsar with 320bhp or more - nothing on road will touch it (except from the bike and the odd kit car). Also, my pulsar was all stripped out so it was light as a feather… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/11/2006 by asdffdsa (1 review written)

Fast as factory standard car! 0-60, 5.5sec. Once you break the 5 second 0-60 barrier (which is easy with slight tuning) expect to break something expensive. Once an engine rebuild has been done expect 50,000+ miles of fun. I'd advise staying close to standard performance.
Insurance is huge! Group 20!
Petrol, I'm doing about 170 miles per tank! ~17 miles per gallon!… Read Full Review
