Hi everyone, just a quick one i need answering as im going for a seccond viewing today and if all is good with oil pressures, buying today!

Just need to know the pressure values on the standard gauge, obviously 4bar is the notch that has 4 next to it, but the ones below it....is the lowest notch 2 bar and then going up in o.5 bar to the 4 bar middle notch?

Thanks very much

Depends which model it is, an R33 GTST spec 2 for example has 4 bar in the middle and 2 bar is the only other mark between it and 0 bar.
A good R33 GTST will show over 8 bar when cold running at fast idle and will drop to just below 4 bar when hot at tick over.
Don't trust the std gauge as its crap along with all the other std Skyline gauges, none of them are accurate, they are only a guide :)

Yeah i know about the inaccuracy of the standard gauges but thats all i have to go one when buying one, its an r33 gtr, i think i read somewhere that the first notch on the gauge is 2 bar, then notches for 2.5, 3, 3.5, then the 4 bar notch is labled 4bar, is this correct?

Its only done 31000 km's and is in mint condition everywhere so hopefully the gauges are still accurate
