Engineer, destined to become a car guy growing up around project cars in the driveway and tools in the garage. I'll do anything from off-roading to cruising through the twisties in the canyon.

Nice! Cool find! As much as I enjoy my Rx7, theres a significant amount of project creep, and honestly i dont know if its that much more fun to drive than a stock one. Faster yes, but more fun? Im not sure. Keeping things closeto stock with a car like yours will mean everything will actually work, which is always nice if you like driving as opposed to tinkering
I do like tinkering but driving is always more fun to me. I would try to keep it as Nissan as possible as far as mods go but I am pretty limited. I will be posting everything here though as time goes on so stay tuned.
Yo guys, here's my weekend driver. It's a fantastic daily driver but I do want to get it track rea

I don't know about you guys, but I'm stoked about Wheelwell's new build guide page. Hopefully we g
Thanks Joey, we're excited to get them going. Nothing is ever too specific ;-) What other guides would you like to see? And WHO do you want to see them written by?
Hmmm can never go wrong with an offroad build, pure daily driver build, looks like the canyon cruiser is taken, utility builds (i.e. best sound system build, surf bum build, self-built build). As far as who, no idea??? Would just be fun to see all the crazy builds out there.
Fair enough, we'll see what we can do to bring in some good ones!
Utah Motorsport Campus, formerly known as Miller Motorsports, has some awesome track days. I got t
So it turns out that the Japanese Sony head unit that came in the car only hits a 90.0 frequency on
As far as a head unit, i dont think it matters that much. If you just want tunes, id get one of the digital only head units without a cd player. I have one in my daily driver yaris and i dont miss the CD player at all. I just play from my itunes library or spotify all the time now. Also without the CD player the unit is inly a few inches deep so you have more room for wiring, etc in behind. There was zero room behind the old cd player in my Rx7 so going to one of those head units made sense for having space to run wire looms for gauges behind the dash.
Dang that would've been a good idea. I don't listen to CD's at all anymore and this one does have a player. Oh well, there did seem to be room enough for some more wiring if I ever need it.
I have prosport gauges abd they are pretty nice. They've got the aesthetic of defi gauges, but without the huge price tag.
I'll need to check those out. I heard if you disconnect the oil temp gauge it'll through a CEL. You heard of that before?
no, but anything is possible. I don't know how they have those wired. If it's really the case, and you want to replace the gauge, you can always disconnect it, use an ohm meter to check the resistance across the gauge and then solder in resistors totalling that amount so the ECU still thinks there's a gauge there. But an oil temp gauge that's working is worth keeping. I'd add water temp, and maybe a wideband if you're going to do an aftermarket ECU or other tuning.
And it's another car show. It's always fun to see other builds and talk with all the enthusiasts o
In an age filled with key fobs, it's refreshing to see actual keys for both cars :)
Yo guys/gals, need some advice on getting some new wheels. These Advan's are cool and all but not
almost can never go wrong with Enkei RPF1s, but their are a few ADVANS and Volks that would look awesome as well if your budget allows!

Plit rims or magnesium! Light and strong.
The R34 wheels looks pretty solid on the R32: bringatrailer.com/listing/1990-nissan-skyline-gt-r
I'm a sucker for both TE37's and RPF1's on Skylines.
TE37's are one of those wheels that look great on nearly anything. Also, very appropriate and period correct as Matt mentioned.
TE37's are baller, and also a period-correct performance wheel for the car. Especially with the right offset to get some deep-dish action and concave spokes. RpF1's are a great budget choice. That's what I have. Light and relatively cheap. goo.gl/images/pYwZHl
Volk RE-30's would look great on there too
Some Advan Racing GT's would look great on there
Dang, just looked them up, those look great.

This is the perfect drivers car. Can't believe how well the 32 handles the twisties. Lucky I live

I like that he kept it looking stock making for a nice sleeper. I definitely wouldn't expect a convertible to be packing this much heat!
I know right? I'm not a huge fan of convertibles but he loves them and he loves HP.
Went out to Makes & Models today to run a smoke test on the 32 to see if there were any vacuum
Love your ride; just gorgeous. I've seen this shop in Stradman videos. You ever see his lambo around?
Yeah it was there when I went over. I missed the shot but it was parked right next the R35 about 5min before I took this.
Ha, that's cool.
Put in some new EBC rotors and pads. Looks better and stops much better. Still have a 500 mile br
Landed the show stopper award at Ogden High Auto Show. Thanks guys!
