OK I own a 94 R33 GTS4 and would like to install a Exedy twin plate clutch.

Can anyone tell me which clutch kit I would use? Is it Push or Pull? And will I have to do a push/pull conversion?

I've been searching for weeks and e-mailed several distributors with no luck.

I guess no one knows what to put in a GTS4..

Any help please!!!!

this is only an educated guess but would it not be the same as the gtr as its the gtr drive train?

Really sorry that I cannot help a fellow GTS4 owner....

It seems like there is little known about the R33 GTS4. Very hard to get the right information. :apoke:

I will check the Nismo parts catalogus this weekend, maybe there is some information in there.

Nissan Skyline R31 (Import, RB20DET), R32 GTS-t & GTS-4, R33 GTS25-t
All the above were listed for one list of replacement clutches. The R33 GTS-T used a push-type clutch cover, as did the pre-93 R32 GTR. The R33 GTR and late R32 GTRs used a pull-type assembly.

Of course, you would get your answer if you spoke to any Skyline specialist with a list of part numbers!

Ok so just to narrow things down my R33 was built Nov 93. Is it a push or pull? Is there an easy way to tell without taking everything apart to see? (I fear that I may have to wait till I have the clutch pulled to know which one to get)

The reason I'm trying to get these answers is the hope of ordering the correct clutch before I pull the motor to do my upgrades..

Right now I have a garage full of parts for my turbo conversion and the clutch is the last thing on my list.

id say your looking at either of the gtr clutches, and the only way you will will know what you have 100% is to take it out and see. nov 93 was the early r33, so its not unreasonble to assume some of them may have the older design r32 layout.

This is an interesting one as i have an early gts4 rs33 saloon, so i too have to ask the same question regarding what clutch i have.
Also from the other thread on here regarding original prices i cant find the gts4 listed in r33 varient before 95 but mine is a94 model.

its seems this is a rare model of a rare model.

Thru some serious digging I was able to find outr that the first R33's were made in Nov 93 and the GTS4's were some of the first mine was actually one of the first 1200 made.

That'd be fine, but there are three to choose from, not two! :nono:

I'm 80% sure you'll have a push-type assembly. I haven't really worked on any Skylines yet, so don't know how much of the clutch actuation you can witness from outside the gearbox. If you could get a photo of your gearbox (externally, with a focus on the obvious area) and a photo of an R33 GTR's gearbox (which we know for a fact used a pull-type clutch) from the same view/area, it may answer the question.

As I said before though, if you call up someone who sells these parts, you'd get the answer in a flash and save all this debate!

Sounds good in theory but there aren't any dealers for skyline parts in Italy that I'm aware of and I really don't want the phone bills calling the UK. Not to mention I'm pretty sure there are some dealers here on the site.

BTW mt first attempt at contacting Exedy directly resulted in an e-mail telling me to down load their sport clutch catalog(funny no GTS4's mentioned in the catalog)

I found out all the info by searching for VIN translation.. (sorry can't remember where i found it) I know it was either here, GTROC, or Skylines Australia forums.

As far as I can see, it is NOT the same as the R33 GT-R.

Your type of clutch is used in:

E(C)R32 - RB25DE
E(C)R33 - RB25DE
ENR33 - RB25DE 4WD

chiba - That's backing up my hunch so far.

Jamskate - Sorry, I didn't spot your location. I would've called someone up today had I realised! I have a thing about being fed up of people asking on a forum if so and so (original manufacturer) sells a part, and how much it costs. I almost always reply "Call them"... If I'm here tomorrow I'll try to remember to call some Skyline people to get an answer to settle this. £5 says it's a push-type! ;)

Underneith you will find some pics I took (Nismo part catalogue).

It is in Japanese, but I am sure you will be able to see the part numbers and measurements of the clutch 240 mm(?)..., but I am sure that the technical people on this forum are able to help you with those kind of things. ;)

Also I could see that basically the measurement of the R32 GT-R clutch is the same, but its partnumber isn't... :uhoh: The R33 GT-R clutch is a little bit bigger (250 mm?)

Anyway, here are the pictures. I hope you can read them and that it will be of any use for you. :bounce:











:cheers:
