Question R34 RB25DE NEO, what would you do with this budget?

99% sure I m getting my first skyline next week http://amer.pictures.fi/kuvat/Nissan/silver2010/


I m already thinking forward first upgrades so it's --> 1. reliable 2. reliable 3. possibly a bit better power/handling.

Well my budget is 1500eur now and these are the things should be done:
- the best engine oil for Irish winter (-5 to +15 degree c)
- brakes are soft so the pads at least and probably main cylinder there
- have to balance the wheels
- something for misfireing one (spark plugs + maybe ignition coil/s)
- fix alarm or buy and install new one
- remove rear wiper and its bits
- body needs hard and soft wax threatment definitely
- alloys refurbish
- Actually will need to upholster either back seats to red color OR front Recaros to black/gray and preferably with leather.
- I have no garage nor much tools- just an open sky front yard :/ so labour will cost also for more complex fittings.
- R34 SPOILER is MUST but i think it goes until spring next year.

so i was thinking to go for Brembos,Ferodos pads and other brake parts?, some pro type spark plugs?, pro filters? chip? exhaust manifold? what else?

the car has already curvy back exhaust.

if you guys had experience or ideas i m all ear!
of course it d be one place to shop for the parts right? Conceptua then or what else?

some stuff may find here -> www.opieoils.co.uk

also you may look in to http://www.templetuning.co.uk/

also chiptuning in RSP

to find out , is many parts interchangeability between R34 GT and R34 GTT, maybe ask in technical/tuning section.

i think, you will need new tyres , here http://www.eiretyres.com/ you may find desired tyres ... prices there including delivery.

cheers mate, will go thru the links.

Yes tires AND alloys should change to 17" or 18" but thats too expensive for now.. maybe if find some good used ones..

00101101 is 45 but I don't know what's it standing for

Looks like a good basis for a project!

I would definatley budget in Splitfire or equiv coilpacks, as I have had quite a few skylines by now and 3/4 of them have needed coilpacks within a year of driving / my abuse.

Spoiler wise I will have a FRP 34GTR style one up for sale shortly so I may be able to help you out there depending on what look you have in mind for the car overall. Brake wise you can fit r33gtst calipers on a R34 judging by what came on one of mine from Japan so may be a cheap upgrade?
