featuring Nissan Skyline R-34

The R34 GT powered by the RB20DE NEO, coupled with a 5 speed gearbox, became the most fuel efficient straight six Skyline to date (of any shape). The 5 speed automatic transmission available on some models in the previous 2 shapes were discontinued. In its place Nissan produced a 4 speed tiptronic transmission for all of the automatic versions.

The R-33

The R33 Skyline was introduced in August 1993. As with the R32, all auto transmissions on the 2.5 litre non turbo models were 5 speed, all 2 litre and turbo 2.5 litre automatic models were equipped with a 4 speed auto transmission. Some models came equipped with a new version of the HICAS 4-wheel steering system called Super HICAS. This computer controlled system was first used on the R32 GTR.

lastly, the R-32

The GT-R returned with twin ceramic turbochargers, all-wheel steering, all wheel drive, and 280 hp (206 kW) at 6800 rpm. The RB26DETT engine actually produced ~320 hp, but it was unstated due to the Japanese car makers’ “gentlemen’s agreement” not to exceed 206 kW (276 hp). The engine was designed for ~500 hp in racing trim, and then muzzled by the exhaust, boost restriction, and ECU. A Nissan Skyline is capable straight off the market to have 188kw and reaches 0-100KMH in 6.2 seconds and 1/4 mile in aprox 15.0 seconds with manual transmission The electronic boost control had a small physical restriction in the control lines. It was marked in yellow so the new owner could remove it and enjoy a safe factory boost increase. After this increase the Car would put out ~320hp and could do 0-100km/hr in 4.7seconds and quarter mile in 12.8 seconds. The GT-R had Super HICAS, a more advanced computer controlled four wheel steering system using electric actuators.

The GT-R had a significantly larger intercooler, larger brakes, and aluminum front guards and bonnet. Other distinguishing features include flared front and rear wheel arches. More supportive seats were fitted, and the turbo boost gauge and digital clock were removed from inside the instrument cluster. The clock was replaced with a torque meter that indicated how much torque was being delivered to the front wheels (0%-50%). Oil temp, voltage and turbo boost gauges were fitted below the climate control.
