Hi guys

Thought I would throw up a few pics of my '96 R33 GTS25T. I have owned it for around 6 months and am slowly getting it to how I want.

So far I have done the following

Body
GTR front bumper
Side Skirts
GTR rear caps
GTR wing (this may soon change)
GTR custom grill
Nismo clear side indicators

Wheels & Suspension
Lowered springs
DTM Penta Rims
19 x 8 front
19 x 9.5 rear

Engine
3.5" Trial exhaust
HKS Filter
Greddy profec A
Remapped ECU
Front mount I/C
Splitfire Coils
Custom oil catch tank
Blitz b/v
Custom inlet plenum

Interior
Sound system

current power is 221 KW @ rear wheels

Here are some pics















Aim of project is just to have an enjoyable street car. I like the understated look so not planing anything too crazy body wise.

Next mod on the list is a new boot with no spoiler. I want to have the option of spoiler or no spoiler so have got hold of another boot and filled all holes etc. Will have the painting done this weekend and will post a few pics when complete.

Let me know what you guys up in that part of the world think...

Cheers

Spot On Skyline Mate, Nice To See People Who Do Things Proper Rather Than Just Throw Parts At It And Hope They Stick!! Inlet Plenum Looks Better Than The Greddy Ones! Top Job

The inlet plenum is actually the factory one. I just moved the throttlebody to the end and welded a plate over the origional hole. Smoothed it all out and polished it up. I hated the look of the piping running over the engine. Think this makes it look much cleaner.

In NZ we use KW figures not HP. 221 KW is around 297 HP.

Cheers!

Cheers for that!

Bumper is a fibreglass replica of a GTR one. Had to be slightly shortened to fit as GTR is a tad wider. Not too much of a job. Sourced some genuine GTR indicators to fit in so it looks origional.

I love the smooth look of your car mate. I am in the process of smoothing over and painting a new boot for my car with no wing to see how it looks.

Cheers

Cheers mate. Inlet plenum isnt to hard to do. You can still use the existing cable. You just have to flip the throttle body upside down. Took a little bit of mucking around but it came out pretty sweet in the end. Your rims look awesome to man... definately the look i prefer.

I like the no spoiler look because it's different, but if I prefer the GTR spoiler...

Lovely looking car either way! The ride height is perfect and the wheels really finish it off.

Cheers mate. Yea just wanted to have a different look, GTR wing is getting pretty popular these days. Nice to be able to choose between the two styles depending on what I feel like.
