“The Nissan Skyline GTR Twin Turbo R33 is very fast,...”

Written on: 11/03/2009

The Nissan Skyline GTR Twin Turbo R33 is very fast, dependable car, the design is second none , how many cars can take from 280 hp stock to 400 stock with a couple minor mods. key word gents is MINOR mods meaning your wallet wont feel impact unless u punch the gas!. I love my skyline (GTR not to be confused with the N/A skyline) The 4 wd takes away errors of a poor manual driver which I guess some may see as a good thing so I guess I can't say I really have any complaints… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/04/2008

The Skyline is a work of art. Not only is the GTR a beautiful machine, it is also extremely capable. A bit of clever wizardry and a seemingly limitless potential for more power make it an absolute dream to drive fast. Get this machine on the Nurburgring and you can forget your 10 minute Clarkson lap, think more 8 minutes (My current aim) - thats an average of almost exactly 100mph... To date I have averaged 93Mph round the whole 13.3 miles and 74 bend… Read Full Review

Barspinmatt's Response to Venomx.'s Review

Written on: 19/12/2003

Hiya mate.
<br>
<br>First off let me commend you on a really good detailed write up. Myself, brother and Dad were reading this. We import from Japan, and take about eight or nine cars a year. We also tune them, this is taken care of by myself and brother.
<br>
<br>When we Visited VeilSide in 01 we got on the case for the single turbo RB26 combo as being in our opinion and Veilside's as the quickest cheapest route to take for 1000+BHP (and why are many people on here laughing at these figures?) given UK supplyers ect. I'm sure your aware of thier 1200BHP twin turbo R34 but Skyline tuning is a dark art and they were saying nothing regarding thier R34!.
<br>
<br>We see regular, govourned by the owners wallet of course, 7 to 900BHP results quickly on the single turbo'd RB26.
<br>
<br>I would be really interested to chat to you about the twin turbo issue. You see we came across multiple problems tuning this combo on the RB26 engine out of the R34, we never could quite reach the 600+ BHP mark, due to head work and cam's with a fully blue printed engine and exstensive ECU mapping ect being to powerfull for them, they would over heat, splutter, crack, Wastegate problems came daily, they ran out of puff, they came in late, early and in all generally made a meal of each other! uncontrol-able boost rising and falling, head gaskets, new blocks the works! it just was not happening!
<br>
<br>I was getting over boosting problems from day one after any stage of head tune, the emergency boost controll was not figuring things out quickly enough, Link and Motech systems were terrible. It was pinking even with 700cc injectors on maximum duty cycle, retarding and advancing the timing added piston slap, why? we don't know. It was an utterly dire engine to tune. This happend with over seven engines. If we left the head work, cam, and didn't blue print the bottom end it was fine up untill about 550-560BHP. The head showed massive gains! we are talking 50+ BHP from a stage one flow, no matching of ports, just a flow. We machines out to the plenum/throttle bodies within Nissan Tolerence's and the same to the turbo manifold and this showed another ready 62 BHP, on an NA engine! that's some improvement! We have modified engines for over 8 years, helped with the Modeo Zetech BTCC engine and even got a few look ins for the Super 1600 Ford KA's, so we know enough I would say, but we are stumped!
<br>
<br>Anyway your twin turbo engine seems to be coming on fine. We, as you can relate to I'm sure are a bit baffled, and I just wrote out 200 words about how evil the twin turbo engine is (oops! if you read it no offense intended) so any words would be gratfully recieved.

Why the Hollinger and Jun upgrades? Why are they better? For drag racing I assume. For a road race application, assuming 800+ hp, which is better?

r34's are too heavy to be a 9 second car...you should either lighten the 34 as much as possible with extensive carbon fiber or build up the 32 as your dragger instead b/c the 32 is the lightest of the gtr's from '89-'01

Neeeeh. I wouldnt recommend rb26dett... never. Unless you have 20 grand in your pocker right now.
<br>
<br>The highest that I would personally go (engine wise) is the rb25det. its bolt on just like the rb20 and the tranny is for rear wheel drive also (unlike rb26 > 4wd tranny)
<br>
<br>but I would not go with RBxxDETx anyway.
<br>Hard to find replacement parts, heavier than SR (because of the extra 2 cyl) and SR is the most compatible.
<br>
<br>If you're interested in rb26dett you must have some extra cash. Well what you can do is get the SR, bore it out to 2.2 L, put a T3/T4, and lots of internal goodies, and you got yourself a lightweight 400+ rocket.

I am attempting to build an American KA S13 240sx by placing an RB26 under the hood. I understand that this would require a bit of cuting but wonder just how extensive would I have to cut? Would it be worth the extra work or should I just follow through with the SR20DET? Any advice and/ or hints toward this project would be greatful. Email [email protected] or post a comment here.

<br>Twin turbo's interfering with each other, £3K to get 400HP,RB26 engine bigger than the biggest standard turbo's, heh, heh.
<br>
<br>Firstly, the GTR although listed at 280Hp, (because of a Jap car manufacturer agreement) is agreed by many to push out around 320Hp at the flywheel in stock form. Some very minor mods will get 400 flywheel Hp with stock everything.
<br>
<br>Secondly, the Veilside 1300 Hp R34 GTR, uses two Turbo's(maybe they know the dark art to stop them interfering with each other.)
<br>
<br>Thirdly,standard turbo chargers go up to 2000+ hp ratings, so there is no way a little 2.6 litre engine is going to threaten them, hell, it won't even get a 2000hp turbo to even spin fast enough to produce boost.
<br>
<br>and lastly, not everyone with a 200+mph car is listed with the 200+mph club.

Barspinmatt's Response to 33736_G.'s Review

Written on: 18/12/2003

My dad has imported these cars (Skylines and general land of the rising sun hot motor's) for over eight years and myself, my brother and Dad modify to customer spec, or leave standard after import regs and changing to UK spec.
<br>
<br>The Engine in Question is the Nissan RB 26, straight six, it is not a V8 or a V6, and the design is ground braking stuff even to this day! So this twin turbo car is the only one in the UK to effectivley reach over 700 BHP from the twin turbo spec?.......rubbish!
<br>
<br>Don't take the micky on lookers, modifying the RB 26 is a dark art! and when in top race spec the engine will out perform, and is too powerfull for any "production" turbo (don't mug yourself! thats production turbo HKS, KKK, ect ect) on this planet so far!...but Veil Side can, and have reached 1200BHP from the R34's RB26 engine and it's still going today. Bearing in mind it has a poor running race as any race spec car does. Not to mention Top secret owning three RB26 Powered cars all running 1000 + BHP.
<br>
<br>Anyway, the twin turbo's restrict each other, the way they work and the waste gates are only good up to a certain level. They hamper fueling, mapping, flowing, and balancing the engine. so what is needed is a very large single turbo conversion. This then takes the engine, and your wallet to new levels. Over the 400BHP mark for the engine, about 3 grand before VAT on the single turbo conversion and a few extras to get things going!.
<br>
<br>After this we are talking, detailed blueprinting, balancing, 6 to 700 + cc injectors, a fully mappable stand alone computer with on board diagnostic abilities via Laptop, lairy cams, lower than low compression ratio (if running a anti lag turbo system then the compression can be compramised a lot) forges pistons, rods, exhaust system that's fully fettled with, extra lambda sensors, modified plenum chamber, rail pressure has to be increased for the injectors, ie new fuel system (well to an extent) and fully! Fully! blueprinted top to bottom if we are off to the 700+ BHP point. If things are off ever so slightly engine components eat each other with no thought towards your bank account! Oh Dear! Not to mention! Clutches, for this spec, to cope with the power they cost in excess at trade price 2 grand plus! and you will eventually need a quaife spec straight cut gear box aswell, or you will need to own a skyline breakers yard for the ammount of gears you will crunch! Not to mention, Inter cooling, pinking (knocking, or detonating) at this level of tune is common, as is piston slap (but thats another subject with these engines) The only intercooler up for the job is VieilSide's Mahusive! fron mounted inter cooler. Other wise we are talking out with the rear seats! loads of turbo lag! also at 30LBS of boosted air per combustion chamber! thats right, thats what gets you 1200BHP we need to consider how we will maintain the position of the boost pipes! they blow off with immense power! you'll be KO'd if your in the way of a samco hose popping off at over 2 bar of boost.
<br>
<br>But below is the dark bit about RB26 engines.
<br>
<br>Flow the head on the RB26 and see massive improvements on power! My brother spends about 2 hours on a stage one flowed head for the RB26 and gets about 50 to 60 BHP from this alone! with a glory'fied dremmel by the way. This is not rubbish! I kid you not, do your research.
<br>
<br>The mapping gets easier after 100+ Ron (octane) Fuel But when we get past the 700 BHP mark we need to address what other car you want to drive!, these machines are not for every day driving! they idle like a dying cow, the emissions are immense! they spit flames at the tap of the go pedel, they stink! they shudder your teeth out of your head and when you go to pull away from the lights, and you hit 3.5 K (rpm) on the rev counter in first, and you watch the boost gauge hit 1.5 bar of boost, the tail end steps out, taken care of by traction control, but a police man see's you doing 40 mph in first and spitting whopping flames! well say bye bye to your driving liscence.
<br>
<br>I could write an essay on the RB26, I work with them every day, mapping them, stripping them and I know (well it's a three way mish mash) what works and what doesn't, and I will put my life! on it that the twin turbo RB26, with an un specified cam makes 700+ BHP. Utter garbage! And the insurence? my Dad had a 858 BHP R33 Skyline, imported, Business insurence quoted him over 5 grand! so no I'm not going to lie to you, I don't drive them on the road, down at the pod (santa pod) is another story though! No I don't drive them, my dad has a R34 Skyline in standard trim and I have only ever sat in it, I'm 23 and drive a Toyota Starlet Turbo, running a Mazda RX7 1.3 turbo (rotary) engine, that produces 250 BHP and does the quarter mile in around 15 seconds. I tell only the truth, I do not agree with this guys comments!
<br>
<br>anyway why is he not on the 200+ Club list? at 700+ BHP 200mph is not that hard to achieve.

I think this guy is seriously confused. I bet he has a 1.0 mk1 fiesta with pepperpot alloys, screw-on chrome plated twin exit halfords exhaust, huge fake whale fin on the boot lid, a neon light hanging off the exhaust, and only dreams of owning a Skyline. He probably smells too. Also 2.5 stars out of 10 for practicality, apart from the fuel (depends how heavy your right foot is) mine is extreemly practical, and I use it every day. Saying that tho, mine is prob nearer 300bhp, not 700!!!!!! And value for money, half marks again!!! Well what can you buy these days with performance like a Skyline, at still an amazing price (esp. if you import). Beofre people write things like that, they need to 1st, own the car they're writing about, and 2nd, know what they're talking about!

It's kinda hard to fit translucent, twin core (no less)ignition leads to a GTR, as the last time i checked, those damn idiots at Nissan fitted one ignition coil per cylinder, directly onto the spark plug. Maybe the V8 version has HT ignition leads. Ha Ha. The 700 BHP didn't make any sense until i noticed the thing has stainless steel hose clamps,wow, and two types of induction system, again maybe one for each of the V8 banks. Did anyone inform Nissan that they make V8 engines???

The R33 GTR V-Spec is an in-line six, 24 valve, 2.6 liter twin turbo engine. It is indeed possible to gain 700 bhp out of this engine, but not with the modifications that have been done to this car.

I'm sorry but if you think your skyline has a v24 or a v8 engine you shouldn't be driving it! The last guy was right, it's an rb26dett, 2.6 litre straight-6 engine. 6 cylinders and 206KW in stock form usually. The 24v is 24 valve, 4 valves per cylinder, 4 * 6 cyclinders = 24. I suppose you think it's rear-mounted engined too?! lol..

If you have 700 horsepower your car would not take 4 seconds to do 0-60

Wow! V24! In line 12's???!!!! I assume you're trying to say 24 valves which would involve having 3 valves per cylinder on a V8, which is very rare. V6 is more likely to have 24 valves (4 per cylinder, usual). Anyway, any of the above would mean an engine change cos as far as i'm aware all r33 gt-r's came with a STRAIGHT-SIX engine.
<br>
<br>p.s. 702hp through twin Big Bore exhausts? Ha! H&r springs and koni shocks AND SPAX suspension kit as well? You might as well say you've got four different engines in there whilst you're at it. In fact, what about jet engines? Or some kind of super teleportation device? Could say you work in Area 51 and you've also put some anti-gravity machinery in the skyline... On the floating cloud in your head! Think you should probably do a bit more research before inventing your next imaginary car son!
<br>
<br>Sorry, that was a bit mean. Give you credit though, it was amusing reading the article! ;-)

I bought an r33 gts-t in england and standard its only reasonably quick plus with the rear wheel drive the back steps out quite quick!
<br/>Recently driving down the motorway quick on my left was an r32 gtr who decided to speed up and left me 4 dead!
<br/>And believe me I tried to keep up!

I am not a skyline owner unfortunately. Thing is there is one for sale in my city (in Canada)... the only one! I took it for a test drive, incredibly fun and addictive to drive (its a nissan skyline r32 GTS). I would be driving it already if it weren't for my family busting my balls about it. According to them I should sacrafice my ego to get a newer car that is more reliable and not let my man parts make these decisions. My thought is that no matter how much trouble it gives me its a sexy-looking 6 cyl turbo with a notoriously insane reputation for $6000, and its certainly worth the extra headache (and I mean the nagging). I just want to hear this from a skyline owner. Is it worth the extra nagging at home for the roar of the engine on the back streets? Is it worth maintaning (it can get tiresome) or is my family just ignorant to such an amazing machine?

hey, i am from australia as well, the r32 is way better, no matter what those guys say. the fact is the r32 gtr is lighter and faster in 1/4 mile and 0-100 km/h. if you waste your time arguing over the looks of a car when it is all opinion than you have no idea about cars. obviously you are interested in performence than you can't go past the r32. don't waste your time listning to those people who put 2 exhaust tips on there gtst t33. anyway have a look at some pictures and decide what shape you like. they vary a fair bit

Hi all im from australia and currently own a holden ute with 255kw standard. The ute I have goes very hard and quick its got a 5.7lt 350 chev in it and goes along doing an easy 260kmph off the clock. I heard that these "skylines" are super quick but cost heaps. I want to know whats the fastest and best gtr. Im looking at buying a r33 gtr, but you guys are tossing over the r32 gtr. Whats the best one and easiest to gain HP out of?What top speed can these skylines do? Is it better to import one from Japan or buy in Australia??

Hi
<br>Where do some of you guys get your info\' I currently own an R32 GTR, my previous ride was a R33 GTST. While the R33 GTST was great it pales to insignificence when compared to the GTR. The R32 in stock form is the least powerfull of the GTR\'s but is also the lightest and fastest(fact). Sorry, but no STOCK GTST is going to see which way a STOCK GTR went. When it comes to modifying the GTR has MUCH more potential. The Rb26DETT can safely handle 600HP (with standard internals) which the RB25DET will not. The R32 GTR was built for Group A racing and in it\'s first year won 29 races from 29 starts.
<br>I love Skylines in general, GTR\'s in particular, and for my money the R32 is a clasic, THE BEST!!!

Tumofo's Response to aZn_dReaMeR.'s Review

Written on: 11/01/2004

Hello all,
<br>
<br>I might be able to bring some light to the GTR in the USA phenomenon. I bought a 1995 GTR R33 from Motorex last year. There are currently estimated to be about 100 gtr's in the U.S.(according to last month's Turbo magazine). Most of them are in California. I didn't have to wait long because they had one in stock. They often have them in stock, but if they don't it could take months before you recieve one. It was pretty easy to register in Georgia, and insurance was easy enough to get but expect to spend a tonne of money in a relative short amount of time. No one can purchase a stock GTR and leave it in that condition for very long. Before long you'll be putting thousands into turbo kits, exhaust, wheels, nitrous, etc. But it is all completely worth it. Driving it around is exciting at first, but becomes cumbersome after a while because everywhere you go you get stared at. Even older people stare at you because the steering wheel is on the wrong side of the car. But like I said, everything is completely worth it. If you are interested in one, Motorex is the right place to go... ask for Vernon (he's the man). But please don't call them unless you are very serious... they get called everyday from people who are just curious. I might consider helping you myself but these message boards always seem to bring out some angry people.

Hows it goin, sorry to bring it back up but some of these people dont know what they are on about. Having driven nearly all gtst, gts25t, gts4 and gtrs plus an R34 GTT not a GTR though, I would have to say that the R33 gtr would have to have the most potential, 100 times more than the R32, they have the most nicest feel to them out of any other car I have driven but straight up they are not quite as nimble as the R32 GTR but close to exactly the same, and that is only due to a howl 50 kilos extra wich you can nearly fix with some carbon fibre doors and wing, and with that done I can easily say it handles better than the R32 GTR even though it is not as light, plus you can burn of the pounds with a lightweight nismo driveshatft, and anyway the potential for the looks I cant even bother to get started on, they look tough as! and you dont want to convert them to rwd, the torqe splitter will still let you throw that back end out and plus it would ruin the take of, skylines r WICKED!!!!!! Oh and plus the R33 is faster than the R32 and has more torqe from any speed and that is that main thing.

Hi guys, I am a kiwi from New Zealand. While not trying to rub salt into the wound Skylines are as commen here as there are drivers. But don't get me wrong I own a R32 GTS-t Skyline, and I tell you what it is so easy to work on and increase horse power. And the best bit, I brought my Skyline for around 10,000 NZD(5,000USD). SO if you guys want to see so great Skyline action come over some time and check it out.

Hey i'm from Australia... How ya goin mate...
<br>I recently bought a R33 Skyline GTS non-turbo for $AU8000... yes i consider it a miracle and yes it has absolutely no major problems... i thought seeing as it's non-turbo it wouldn't move but on the contrary... it still hectic burnouts and power slides and the RB25 engine can easily handle the thrashings. it corners like a
<br>fromula 1 car and easily outruns my mates turbo sylvia boosted to 150kw... i must say i cannot wait to put a turbo on it...

R33's handle like a boat, huh, must be one hell of a boat. All skylines are great cars, and in thier own way each model is unique. My personal favorite is my current car,an R33 GTS rear wheel drive, with racing spec limited slip, and RB26DETT engine, modified ..of course. The ultimate, 250Kg's lighter than a GTR, easier to launch, drop clutch and steer in wreathes of tyre smoke, rather than the GTR method, hoping it doesn't bog, or break the drive train, or burn out the clutch. Also the lighter GTS is awesome on dry track days, fun too with controlable rear wheel throttle steering. But anyways all Skylines rule. Keep annihilating those damned Scoobies

Yes there are Skylines in America, but there are so few of them that it's hard to find an owner here. But for those who want a Skyline then the place to look to is MotorEx. They'll even legalize your car for 17-18,000. It's a good deal because those cars have too much illegal b/s. (Windows, exaust, ecu, etc.)

I believe u can get a gtr from Motorex. they can import it for u but it will take a long time. at least three to four weeks before it can reach the u.s. then it will take at least another couple of weeks before u can get it. it has to go through custom agents and checked if it can be driven on the streets by u.s. regulations

cj and that other dude from the US are full of it. Not only do I not believe them in saying that they have a skyline. but also, for having the gall to claim they have them in the usa. ive been trying to get one for the better part of a year, and I still dont have one. I cant get a hold of one, much less find a dealer who can help me import it. those kids need to get a life, man.

I think the R33 is an awesome car. I love all NISSANS i have respect for them all GTR r32 r33 180&200sx i've owned them before and they're all great vehicles. Of course one car will beat another car because everyone has their own mods they do. Some are better than others that's the way the ball rolls. So keep up the good work on R33 MAN THEY ARE AWESOME. And by the way (nerdy) the nissan gts-gtst r rwd but all the gtrs r 4wd except if they have converted it to rwd which a lot of people do. It is recommended to buy a gtr because they are an awesome car.

I am very immpressed with my 1996 200sx it's tight in corners with great powerslide abilities is great for overtaking as it accelerates from 70 to 130 without a care in the world - I was thinking about chipping & increasing boost to maybe 250bhp to 300bhp - Is this a worthwhile investment or is it worth just saving for a Skyline and being done with it? - Are all models of Skylines 4WD?
