    Default Nissan Skyline Restoration project

    Asalamo alaikum to everyone,

    as the subject tells this post is all about the restoration of the 4 door Nissan Skyline R32. first i will going to tell you how i got it.

    went to a customs auction where i got a list of items being sold in auction, Guess what, this car was in the list. however as there were no other competitor in the auction for this car, so i won the bid and gave the initial payment at the spot. however dealing with the customs people is nerve wrecking experience and they juice out each and every penny in your pocket when they have to sign any document. well thats a different story. cut short i got the delivery of the car from NLC dry port Thokar niaz baig. upon receiving the documents for registration process i came to know it was previously kept by someone in Iqbal town lahore, not gonna take any names for privacy. maybe someone knows them from here. the car was kept though in very bad condition, custom turbo piping, broken back lights, front light was cracked, well much more rusting and all. however when i received the car it was in pretty bad shape. pretty much everything was jammed, from differential to the Ignition key.

    when i called my mechanic, denter and painter. they were astonished on my decision and it was a big project and gonna cost me a lot. well i told them in reply, SHOK DA KOI MUL NAI.

    well, we started striping the car and anything we touch was rusted.

    the only thing which worked fine was the Engine, we fired up the engine after changing the oils and a little cleaning, and it started on first ignition, however it did made some pretty black smoke on first starting, then in few seconds when the dirt was burned out, it got smooth and run fine.

    took out all the suspension and found out the following.

    1. all bushes are broken
    2. rear shocks are leaked
    3. differential bearings are broken
    4. wheel bearings are worn out

    i sent the suspension to the workshop, opened up each item and ordered new parts.

    1. full suspension bush kit, PROTHANE bush kit (made in usa). imported by Basit( upgrade Motorsports lahore)
    2. set of four racing Tein coilovers bought from Apexi, Blitz, HKS, Nismo, Greddy, Rays and more JDM Parts direct from Japan - Nengun Performance online, and imported by same as above.
    3. differential was serviced, and same bearings were available from lahore, installed new bearing set.
    4. wheel bearings changed.
    5. all four wheels brake disc pads (hawks) imported from USA by upgrade motor sports.

    the disc rotors are in fine condition, just got them a little tool to get rid of all the rusting.

    The engine was coupled to an Automatic transmission, so got rid of the auto tranny and bought manual R154 manual gear from Marij from peshawar, he is a gem of a person and very nice guy, thanks Marij. and yes the Engine in this vehicle is 1JZ- GTE vtti.
    now it has been converted back to manual. the vehicle was originally manual. Thank God the clutch pedal was still there.

    all the manual clutch related stuff:

    1. master clutch cylinder,
    2. Slave cylinder.
    3. clutch fork
    4. stage 3, 6 puk eclustchmaster brand new from USA ( by upgrade Motorsports)
    5. R154 manual gear with lever( courtesy Maarij from Peshawar)

    rear new lights has been imported directly from Thailand from Ebay via Dubai, i personally brought them in my luggage.

    front lights are washed and serviced. the whole car body anti rusting has been done, denting has been done to bits, and now the car is under paint job. there are more stuff going in:

    1. greddy blow off valve
    2. dunlop drag radials semi slicks
    3. new racing radiator
    4. new stainless steel turbo pipping ( bought from upgrade Motorsports)
    5. new front mounted turbo inter-cooler
    6. air filter
    7. all the gauges, oil temp, turbo pressure, oil pressure , water temp etc.
    8. front strut bar
    9. all monograms original imported
    10. imported 3" inlet and 4" outlet Jasma approved exhaust

    now the car has been registered ( which was a hell of a task) and will insha'Allah come on road by the end of march. below are the pictures.

    i didnt imported the engine from dubai, however only the lights were imported from dubai and that also in my personal luggage. i did not had to pay any custom or duty etc. other stuff which was imported from outside was imported by upgrade motorsports in lahore and i paid them the cost. details of the customs and duties are unknown to me. i paid the final total cost.

    other than this, there are other means of geting an engine from dubai. if you know people in dubai or can go there, what you have to do is choose an engine you like and ask the person the total cost of that engine after delivering it to your city in pakistan. he will give you a quotation which includes all the customs or duties etc. some people just give you a cost regardless how they will take it to pakistan. some people bring it through a legal system and some through illegal system. for obvious reasons, illegal is cheaper but risky. and i will not recommend you that. go for Legal for peace of mind.

    best of luck.
    regards.

    ASALAMO ALAIKUM BROTHERS,

    first of all sorry for so late update, actually yes i was busy with the project plus my business and family matters. i hardly get time to sleep plus my 8 months old daughter now cries for me when i am home you guys can imagine. lol

    well heres the update, it got delayed due to some fitting problems and few parts which i bought from some people here from pakwheels and they misguided me and sold me the wrong parts, so now i had to buy new parts from Driftmotion.com, the best service, price, and quality. so it came from CAlifornia USA. took a lot of time.

    here are the pictures, today we will install the intercooler piping. the intercooler has been installed in its place. radiator, and fuel lines are in. 30Litres of petrol is gone in the tank. Electrician will today start the car. so pray for me and the car.

    hopefully we will be on road in a weeks time.
    regards,
    Ali shehzad

    Default Update

    Asalamo Alaikum Brothers,


    well just got a little time to upload a picture, the customization was done today in the bumper to properly make its fitting with the intercooler, the electrician has started the engine, there were little fuel line issues, it had air in it so was troubling in the start. now its all ok. engine Masha'Allah sounds good. the front body setting has been done, and now rest of the electrical work will be started tonight. it shall take two days to complete.

    finally the project is coming towards an end, to start a brand new life on roads.


    remember me and my project in your prayers.

    regards,
    Ali shehzad

    asalamo alaikum brothers,

    i am really overwhelmed with your compliments and wishes. i really appreciate it. i am so much encouraged from all of your good wishes and prayers. thanks a lot guys.

    Latest update, ( all the technical guys can help) (electrical issue)

    well the engine wiring has been completed and its firing up properly. but only starts with WOT( Wide Open Throttle), and as soon as you leave the throttle it dies. changed the plugs, serviced the throttle body, put a new MAP sensor. when i was servicing the throttle body i came to realize that there are two controls on the throttle for the butterfly to open. one with the manual wire which is connected with the accelerator pedal, the other is with the TPS(Throttle position sensor) sensor. now when i open the butterfly manually it doesn't open until its fully pulled back, and as soon as i leave it, it shuts off completely shutting down all the air flow and hence engine dies. the TPS i suppose or any other mechanism in the throttle is not functioning right which enables the throttle to stay open for the engine to stay alive and stay under 900rpms.

    this is the only problem holding me back from moving the car out. also any one can confirm me if the 1jzgte VVTI engine uses MAP sensor or MAF sensor, or Both?
