Sligo Newbie...

Name's Eoin & I'm from Sligo.

Here to learn as much as I can on the 2.0 non turbo skyline before I purchase...(96 R33 model -130bhp I think).

I'm new to Nissan's, new to Skylines & new this forum.....

I've been driving a beams celica for the past few years but that car is now gone.

Have a van for work so it's not an everyday car I'm after. I know the ruinning costs of a 2.0 ltr in Ireland.

Test drove a 96 gts 2.0 non turbo & really liked it. So I'm currently using the search feature to find buying guide tips on what to look for...

I'm sure I'll post alot more once purchased....

Welcome along Eoin. One piece of advice I can give you though, go out and get a test drive in a turbo R33 first cos you WILL want one. If the 2.5 engine is too much of a killer on tax maybe consider an R32 Gts-t. Mine was running 300bhp on the RB20 motor (now close to 400 with the RB25 that fell into the engine bay recently) Great car and they are rarer than the R33 over here

Cheers, Deffo not selling it....Went & looked at another today...was very tempted but going with my head & going to buy the white one above tomorrow....After weighing the 2 up I think I'll be happier with it. (fingers crossed)

All going well you'll have a new west member tomorrow...I'm from Sligo & living on the border with Mayo. In Westport & Castelbar most weekends.
