1989 Nissan GT-R Additional Info:

1989 Nissan Skyline R32 GTR, gunmetal grey, 5 speed manual, AWD, all the usual right hand drive GTR stuff. This car was manufactured in musashimurayama in Dec 1989. This car makes 630whp at all four wheels on 91 pump gas mixed with boostane at 3000 feet elevation. Let me tell you a little bit more about it.
I have owned this car for four years and I am the 2nd owner. While I was stationed in Japan, I bought this car from the original owner (a guy located in hachioji) who owned and drove the car for twenty years. He originally bought the car at the Nissan Prince dealer in Mitaka. Current km reading 120k km, but it is not the original speedo.
Since I bought it I have modified it pretty extensively, which brings us to how the car sets now. This car has been completely setup as a fast road legal car while also having optimal settings to circuit track and road race. I imported the car to the US last year and it is US federal and Idaho state legal, and I have copies of all the paperwork (CBP, EPA, etc.). I have a clean Idaho title in my name with no liens.

The paint is the original 28 year old paint. The color is good but the clear is a little weathered and swirled. There are some imperfections and dents; it's a 28 year old original body. Some time spent buffing and polishing could get it looking better but I never polished it myself. I'm not a paint and body guy, I just like to go fast.

The car was tuned this summer by BK Industries in Meridian, Idaho. It is tuned in the AEM V2 ecu as MAP speed density with TPS compensation. It made approx 630whp (540 pound ft) at all four wheels on 91 pump gas mixed with boostane. That number will certainly go up with the water meth kit on, optimising cam timing, or switching to E85 (which the fueling system is capable of). I spent approx 2 grand going back and forth making sure everything is right for driveability, starting, traffic, max power, etc. I'm picky but the end result is a good tune with good manners.
I'm sure I'm forgetting some things. This is NOT the typical R32 GTR you will see or experience, it is extremely fast in a straight line and corners like it's on rails. Its got a 2 way locking differential that locks, it does not ride like your minivan. It handles the road like it looks; direct and aggressive. All of the little items work on the car; all the little items you don't usually think of like the clock, temperature blend motors/climate controls, light switches, window defroster, mirror motors, etc. If you're wondering if it has something in particular just ask; I will get you an answer. If you want more detail or specific pictures of something I will be happy to get them. This car has been a labor of love for the past four years and I hate to sell it. I will sell this car for the right price, and if it doesn't sell I will part it out and convert it back to stock. The car has about 18 grand in parts in it, and that doesn't take into account time, labor, base car price, etc. It's safe to say it would cost you a lot more than my asking price to build a comparable US legal R32 GTR with a clean lien free title at this power and performance level. All the hard work is done, all the mechanicals are solid, all the big ticket expensive items have already been done. If you're in the market for a GTR, save yourself a lot of money in the long run and buy this car. Get yourself a fast holiday gift this year.
