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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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... (read more)

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... (read more)

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.

The GTi-R is an awsome car. It looks great. You look at the smalled engined versions of the car an you wouldnt expect much, but the GTi-R is slammed with a big Bonnet Vent, Nice Spoiler an side skirts to make it noticable that this isn't just a standard Granny car for doing the weekend shopping in. The 2.0 16v Turbo gives off a great sound, especialy when the turbo kicks in. The power isn't what you would expect from a car that costs around £5000 - £6000! Buy one of these mommas and you wont...

The Nissan Pulsar GTiR is something that could be very enjoyable to take out on a one of basis and flog around suburbia. It also is somthing you can buy extremly inexpensive. However, it is one of the most impractical cars for everyday use.

The Nissan Pulsar GTiR is my favouite. I have had 450 hp GTR Skyline, FTO, Toyota Supra and have driven the likes of the Lotus Elise. This car is just a fun machine. It will eat a WRX and blow away a 350 V8 like its standing still. Totally recommend this car, and there not too pricey.
Change the computer, injectors, turbo, intercooler, exhaust and clutch and if you have bought the right gear, should have 300+ hp. My car has 342hp and has run an 11.27sec pass with these mods.
