Default My R32 Skyline GTS-T Type M Build.

I know it's not a subaru, but im sure most people here will like it.
Picked this car up as a project for me to keep me occupied. Things haven't gone as expected with the build, but it should be awesome once finished. I picked the car up locally and it seems like it has been neglected for the last 3 years.

Day I picked it up, first thing to do.. get rid of the ugly Acura/ OZ wheel combo.


Which was done by purchasing a set of Gramlights 57DR 18x9.5 +22



Fully Assembled GTR front end.


Then I ripped it all off to start to clean and prep to pull out the engine



Next up was to get the car to my friend Derricks (driftsubau04) and ownder of D'Wreck Fabrications private shop to start the real tear down and fab work.


Starting to pull out the engine, which is an RB25DET from an R33 GTST. Stock engine that came in this car is an RB20DET




Next up is the engine tear down, put Ill get back to that part later.
Decided to start doing all the rear suspension which is from a company called Driftworks out of the UK. Rear subframe was pulled to install all these to make it easier, New polyurethane subframe to chassis bushings were also installed.

Also pictured is the custom 3" Aluminum drive shaft.


Arms and bushings installed


Next up was to get the fuel system/ surge tank installed, It will support great power as well as will make it so I will not slosh fuel around while cornering. I do not have any pictures of the install process, but here is the finished product. Luckily I had this Sard surge tank left over from my wrx race car. It was a perfect fit into the Skyline.


Picked up a 90mm Q45 throttle body which is a direct bolt on to my aftermarket intake manifold and is a huge upgrade compared to stock one. Also picked up a Koyo Radiator with dual FAL fans from an acura integra thanks to Jason (Azn2nr)



Bought a set of cheap chinese no name brand 50mm wide fenders for the back. My goal is to fit my 18x11 +18 Volk TE37SL wheels that I picked up from Biggie for a good deal. I also picked up a rare set of Gold Stoptech 355x32 front big brakes from him as well. The Fenders seem to fit well and should fit the wheel setup with some twerking .


Much wider


Traded the wheels from the BRZ that I sold for this Garrett turbo with a few different options for exhaust housings as well as a new Tial blow off valve (not pictured)

Started the engine teardown which my original plan was to install some Tomei Poncams as well as Tomei valve springs, cosworth MLS head gasket and ARP head studs and to keep the bottom end factory. But unfortunately that was not the case. When I pulled the head I noticed Cylinder 6 had a blown head gasket which resulted into a melted piston. So all new forged bottom end internals have been ordered and head is at the machine shop (Metric Motors) getting the head decked, cleaned and vacuum tested as well as a little bit of port work.



My wall plug buddy was appalled!



I will update more if I see interest/progress.

Picked up my cylinder head today from Metric Motors and it turned out great, even did a bit of a bowl blend for almost nothing.

The car came with rb20, but it has an rb25 now. The fenders seem to fit great.

The lift is now completely mounted to the floor, it was moved in the pictures because it was in process of installation.

Freaking awesome! Love the Red (R31, I think...). Saw one on ebay a while back that was wicked awesome.

Was the import all legal? I know the R-32's are reaching that age where they are DOT exempt.

Dr30 was imported under the 25 year old law
1993 R32 GTR is Motorex
1993 R32 GTS-T is from Canada and holds a Utah State title and is fully legal as well.
