After about 5/6 years of owning a R33 GTR and regretting every day of selling it I am finally back into skyline ownership and man I think I have got myself one of the best!

Some of you all may know it as Rains R32 Deux Ex and I thought it would be fitting to keep that name alive as it was such a special build.

For those of you who don't know the car it is a R32 GTR that was built mainly by Endless in Japan. It's a 2.8 stroked RB with a R34 6 Speed Getrag gearbox and R35 front brakes. There is obviously a lot more to the spec but I will do a full update in another post, this is more a little introduction.

The car has been sat for roughly 5 years in the UK in dry storage and I was in conversation with Rain about it for 2 years trying to buy it and finally that day has come.

During it's time in the UK it spent a lot of time with Bob at Zealou5, one of the notable items (or two more aptly) were changing out the turbos for new Garret water/oil cooled -5s. That of course has put the map out on the car and rather than find a tuning garage to work on the old school ECU I am arranging to have a Syvecs fitting over the coming months.

The car is currently having a general once over along with a service/cambelt/ change.

I have quite a bit planned for this car and will be updating as often as possible. I will pop some photos in a new post. I haven't taken much yet as I was too excited collecting it yesterday.

Big thanks to Matty who sent over a brand new R34 Gearknob to replace the white Nismo one I think is out of place on the interior and some genuine endless dust caps to keep everything in line with the whole "endless" build.

A couple more bits on the way.

I have ordered the expreme Ti downpipe and decat pipe to complete a full ti exhaust all the way from the turbos.

Along with that Matty has very kindly sorted a Fuji carbon spoiler for me which is arriving today/tomorrow so I will update with photos when that comes.

Finally I have ordered a Pioneer Double Din android headunit to replace old school Kenwood in there so I can run the Syvecs bluetooth app for engine monitoring without the need for gauges.

More bits are arriving, this time the Expreme Ti Downpipe. Bloody amazing bit of kit and didn't realise it came as three separate pipes. I have only ever seen down pipes as one single piece before.

As always amazing quality welds on the pipes and extremely light, a small downside is one of the pipes is a little bent on the end but nothing that can't be bent back (although it's not really needed).

This is the first time I have ever seen these as they are so bloody expensive not many people are daft enough to buy them.

Just the Ti decat to arrive now.
