//Running in the 90s// R32 GTS-T Revival

Hi guys, I've been around the forums for awhile now and have recently made some great progress on my project in the past few weeks and though that I would share the build on here.

I once had a 1990 hatch, but due to Canada's harsh winters the chassis was becoming unsalvageable and more trouble than its worth so I decided to move on to something else.



Whilst every native car in Canada is killed by rust, It is well known that we have early access to a plethora of JDM vehicles so decided to take advantage. A friend of mine was leaving the province so way back in 2010 I picked up a 1993 Skyline GTS-T Type M.

It Came with Kei Office Coils up front and Teins in the rear.
Full 3" Exhaust Not too sure of the brand
RSR Downpipe
Nismo NS5R wheels
and some other bits and pieces.

Not bad for the price i paid.



I drove it pretty much as is through 2011 until a coolant line broke and dumped all the coolant out of the car and it overheated and ruined the motor. The next day I got laid off so the car sat at my parents house. My new job required a more economical commuter vehicle and with their being a single parking spot at my condo, the Skyline was shipped off to my parents place and locked in my storage container turned garage.



I collected parts from Japan for the next couple of years, bought a house and now am finally getting back into making progress.

As you can tell by my S13, I Dig the 90's Highway Racer look and splurged on 1990's aero bits when they came up for sale.



The complete aero package is:

Tommykaira Sides and Rear
GTR bumper with JUN lip
Eastbear Mirrors
WinningSports Wangan wing

The car had been in a minor front end collision in a past life so I drilled out the spot welds and replaced the rad support from one I got at an importers





At this time I had the car towed to my own house and started working on what I could do in the driveway. Houses with garages are Extremely expensive in Toronto so the next best thing is a large driveway

At this point I bought a replacement RB20det with forward facing manifold from a friend for a steal. The plan was to go 25 but for the price I paid with the plenum I couldn't go wrong. I might upgrade to a 25 later but for now this will mean I can get the car on the road the fastest.



The motor wouldnt be complete without Super 90's themed Valvecovers











Finished it off with a machined coilpack cover I Designed and Made at work





Got a GKtech Clutch fan and adaptor to help with cooling. I want to make sure this car never overheats again.

Had some Pals over to help get the motor in on the driveway.







All ready to mock up the intercooler piping and such. I also made the cooling panel at work as well.

Got all the wiring labeled and am now in the process of re locating the fuse/ relay box to inside the car. The only wires coming into the bay on the chassis harness are the headlights, turn signals, horn and ambient air temp sensor.



I splurged and bought some Tommykaira wheels to match the aero. I will be running 17/18 stagger until I get the other 18" wheel fixed. The 18's are GTR sizes 18x9+25 and the 17's are 9J+25 as well



At this point, I finally got fed up walking from the front of the house to the shed to get tools and the lack of shade meant it was time to move the car so I could actually make some progress.

I had a good buddy trailer the car to a friends storage unit which is fully equipped with everything needed to finish the project. Its a little cramped but it beats working in the driveway. These storage lockers are rented out as workshops so they are perfect.







On our row of units there is one that does autobody, another for fabrication and a host of people building cool projects. All the resources are in one place to get the project done. I spent most of last week there until all hours of the morning and got all my intercooler piping tacked up as well as made the intake.





The firewall has been stripped of the brake booster/ master cylinder, clutch master, wiper motor for cleaning and paint. I pulled the motor, picked up some Ford UH black and went to town smoothing everything down



Paint came out perfect for HKS livery



This past weekend I got the motor back in and started re assembling everything in the engine bay.



Money Shot.



This pretty much brings us up to speed as to where the car is right now. There are MANY details I haven't written about yet. But I will touch base on them as they become relevant.

Thanks for reading.

my goodness this is awesome. Car looks amazing.

Would be interested in having a Blitz Powered Coil pack cover made if you are even in the business of making another.

I machined a lot of parts at my old work on our router table, I am looking to get my own and start making my own stuff soon.

Right now I am bringing the chassis back to its former glory and will be building it once the platform is solid.

First off the Front suspension was taken out and the inside of the wheel wells were seam sealed and painted with chip, rock guard.





If I was smart I would have done it before the engine bay got painted, but I had to fit in the the painters schedule and there wasn't any time. Masked off all the holes and used some drop sheets to avoid ruining the newly painted bay

I dont really have any pictures (boring and immensely time consuming in my home garage) but every bushing has be replaced with the exception of the bearing between the front arm and knuckle.

For those who are interested, 90% of the S13 energy suspension bushing kit can be used on R32. I properly got rid of Hicas by swapping in an S13 Subframe, removed all the lines and de finned my PS Pump.

Rear BallJoints were replaced with B13 Sentra ones (same as S13)
Front Balljoints are the same as S14
Front Tierod Ends are 95 Maxima

Needless to say im excited to see how this car handles now.

I've been busy over the past couple of weeks assembling, painting and fixing up all the loose ends. As of now, the complete drive line is back in the car and it is back on the ground.

The stock overflow tank was cracked and would stick out like a sore thumb in the newly painted bay so I opted for the new Chasebays Unit. None of the in stock brackets were appropriate so I mounted to the rad support.



I also installed my Greddy Coolant temp sensor in the Upper Rad Hose. The GKTech Fan also fits 100% and I am excited to see how it preforms over stock. They claim 60% more airflow but we shall see.



Intercooler was just a universal kit I had previously purchased from Ebay. Ill probably source a brand name one in the future (Likely HKS) but this will do for now

Finally got the car back on the ground and threw on the Tommykaira wheels and Sideskirts for some motivation.





Wire tuck party starts tonight.

Yea Im glad I finally get to work on it. I am losing my shop space in a couple weeks so Its the last push before winter storage.

Started lengthening the body harness tonight. My good friend is showing me the ropes and helping me out.

Intercooler piping is done and welded, just wait for the BOV flange from vibrant.

Will update later with pictures.

Had some time to work on the car today and started by installing tierod ends.

As i stated before, 95 Maxima ones are compatible with R32 GTS. I knew the old ones were worn out but I had no idea they were this bad.



Also, The old brake master was also replaced with one from a 91+ Pathfinder. All the lines were run and the callipers were cleaned and painted ricer red for some extra horsepower. Both fenders were mounted as well as the lights. Some massaging of the front fenders will be needed so the GTR bumper lines up 100%.



I'm stoked that I no longer have 39048230984 feet of intercooler piping. Now its just 2 short pipes and 4 couplers.



turned out Vibrant didnt have a flange for my Blitz BOV (I Cannot STAND HKS SSQV Sound) As I am tight on time I got a hold of a greddy flange and modified it to fit the BLITZ. Please excuse the sealant, I will clean it up later.



As of now, all the hot side piping is clamped and ready to go. The intake is also in snugged up and in its final resting place. The stock rubber intake was replaced with an aluminum one I made from some scraps I had leftover from the universal Intercooler Kit. I finished it off with a HKS filter, purchased through FRSport.



Again, not the most exciting update just getting all the important maintenance parts out of the way that often get overlooked.

it was for a few weeks or so. From what I gather it was imported from and brought to the GTA from montreal.

Yea to be honest I was drawn into ProTouring because of the fabrication. I felt I didnt have enough progress done at the time to warrant a build thread on here.

and 3D printing should be starting up again soon.

Thanks, There are many little details and parts I haven't touched on yet

The devil is in the details.

Keeping up with the little details, I've replaced the old hard rubber hood stoppers with brand new ones.



Since all the hicas garbage has been removed, I now only have 1 hardline going across the firewall. The plastic factory clips were brittle , cracked and mostly crumbled away to nothing when I stripped the engine bay. To solve this I inserted #10-24 Riv nuts in the existing holes in the cowl and used Stainless button head cap screws and little "P" clips to hold the brake line in place.



Black clips would be Ideal but these do the trick for the time being

I got the OEM GTR bumper fitting as best as I could with the stock GTS fenders and corner lights. It is about 95% right now. There is a gap of a couple mm where the wheel arch on the bumper meets the wheel arch of the fender. This is unavoidable when putting a GTR bumper on a GTS but I doubt it will be that noticeable once the bumpers are painted.



GTR fenders are slightly wider so brackets will have to be to bolt into existing holes under the cornerlights to "suck" the bumper so it meets up with the stock fenders.



As you can see, I also got new belts. For those who have an RB20 and need belts the Alternator is Pn. 4PK870 and Power Steering is Pn. 4PK0945.

The wiring party kicked off last night as well. The fuse box is getting relocated to the glovebox and the harness is getting simplified to remove all the unnecessary wires that were for AC, retractable lip and other things that have been removed from the car.

As a bonus, The brake fluid level sensor connector is the same on the Pathfinder BMC as the OEM skyline one so that was kept and extended,

The car came with the useless projector headlights from factory and were changed for N1/ early GTS style headlights. Like the A/c all the unused connectors and wires were deleted. As of now the only wires headed to the front of the car are Headlights, Turn signals, Horn and the brake fluid level sensor.



once finally tested, everything will be loomed up and tucked under the top rad support.

The stock boost gauge sensor has been relocated to behind the radio along with the wiper regulator.



I hope to have a lot of the wiring buttoned up this weekend, I cant wait to get everything back together.

I love reading this. Would you ever consider going full amber corners? While its not authentic to GTSTs, I think it looks much better...especially since you have a gtr front!

Nah, Im not very fond of full amber corners. I am debating on sourcing a Tommykaira front bumper, Part of me wants a full matching kit, but I love the aggressiveness of this front end.

**THROWBACK The following events took place June 2014**

While on the topic of the front bumper. Being a type M it naturally came with a Type M Bumper which I was never really fond of. It needed a lip to be cool and all the available lips for were god awful aside from the TBO lip which is rarer than a unicorn. The aggressiveness of the JUN lip caught my eye and I knew I needed a GTR bumper.



I sourced a beat up GTR bumper at a local importers for a fairly cheap price. Sold the stock lip and made half my money back and bought a JUN rep lip (Its likely going to get smashed anyways)



I then wanted N1 ducts to complete the look. Genuine N1 ducts are worth more than double the price I paid for the bumper so I opted from some Z1 motorsports Fiberglass ones. I measured 15 times and cut once.



Fitment was 100% Awesome



At his point I had two giant holes in the front of my bumper and two very shitty pieces of fiberglass. Time to get creative.

I took some measurements from both the holes in the bumper and the fiberglass reps. I made them in solidworks and cut them out on the CNC router table at work



Next I cut the flange off the fiberglass reps and started playing with some Adhesives.





I am not 100% sure how they will hold up time will tell I suppose. I think they came out great, all things considering



i also made use of the rear window washer nozzle. Intercooler sprayer anyone?



But more on that later.
