Case Studies – My R33 Skyline

I had my Skyline imported back in 2008 as a parts car with the original intention of following Motorex’s guidelines in federalizing the vehicle. After just 3 hours the motor and transmission was installed and within 5 the car roared to life.

With a bevy of HKS parts, my Skyline belted out 365 at the rear wheels at 19psi on my DynoJet.

Unfortunately, plans and funds derailed my legalization process, and after careful inspection of the NHTSA guidelines, I took the car off the streets and now it’s a track-only race car.

  • Short Mods list :
  • RB25DET Series 1

  • HKS 3037S Turbo upgrade

  • HKS HyperMax Coilovers
  • Apexi Power FC
  • Fujistubo 3.5 inch catback
