Im really thinking of getting a skyline gtr r32. i live in canada there is a lot skylines here, but i have a problem im getting info that skyline gtr break down because of some crank shaft problem. then i heard that they start having problems when the car is at 170k because of the oil pump noting being big enough to pump enough oil in high rpm. i want to know when its to late for the new oil pump to save the engine. one more thing is the N1 pump a good brand to replace. i would like to know a lot about the skyline gtr r32 before i buy one so anything about them will help.

thank you.

You would most likely find more info if you use the search function at the top of the page.
For starters the crank problem you speak of is bollocks. I cannot say what problems occur at 170k as my car does not have anywhere near that sort of mileage up on it.
The RB26 engine as stock, is a magnificently engineered engine and is generally regarded as bullet proof. Even at 170k a well maintained RB26 can still be reliable (although most are not as they have most likely got the stones driven out of them).
1) If i were you i would spend a few extra quid on a well kept R32, rather than a cheap high mileage item.
2) You definately need to do some research on potential problems. Try speaking to a specialist tuner for good advise.

hi bombin, and welcome to the site. STOP PUSSY FOOTING AROUND AND GO BUY ONE lol seriously mate you will love your skyline from the first time you drive it. As said just have a good look around and if needed spend the extra on a better maintained one, rather than one that has the balls already tuned off it. When buying a highly tuned car your not only trusting the guy who's selling it, but also his choice in mechanics
and believe me there's some ass**oles out there. no i dont think the n1 pumps are upto much to be honest, you'd be safer off with a tomei or something else. As mentioned the serch function at the top of the page on the right will give you alot of help, but in the meantime why dont you stop listening to whoever is talkin bollocks about crankshaft problems etc, if its got over 100,000 miles on it you'd be expecting things to start going on them, especially the way most people drive them ;)
