My R34 4door

Well firstly i ill say hey,
been a member on the forum for quite a while but i haven't really posted that much due to me not owning a skyline, but now that ive got one i thought some pictures and a bit of a build thread would change that.
I did a straight swap for her with my civic type r, and ive gotta say ive loved every minute of driving it and the attention it gets.

its a 2000 model with the 2.5 neo engine and a auto box, only mod is the exhaust that i got with the car.

pics to follow

any comments and ideas are welcome

Nice 34, the twin pipe exhaust was the stock one. Any more plans apart from sorting the turret rust?

Did you know that R34 4 door suspension is the same as R33 (different from R34 GTT), and the car has no hicas?

Yeah I knew that the car has no hicas, but I didn't know about the r33 suspension.
I few guys have said that it would not fit.
I'm planning on putting gtst brakes on it and also sort the suspension then it would be wheels

I'd pretty much do anything to have rb26 powers and a manual box

Water drain? Or releases excess air pressure built up in the airbox at speed?

Meister R > BC Coilovers.

Looks like you went the same route as me. R34 4-Door NA. I get a lot of shit from my friends that drive turbos, but I love it.

Going to betray her next year though and drop in a gts-t motor. Parts are harder to find for the 4 door, but the guys here are pretty helpful.

add a pod filter, gives it a very nice growl :-)

as me being only 22, the N/A route was kinda my only option. The guys at work take the piss all the time with it being a auto and non turbo but they all drive corsas lol they soon shit them selves when it down shifts and the nose is up there arse
