1 New GTI-R owner from Ireland on 28th July 2015, 6:19 pm

Stevoc


Hows everyone doing Laughing Been lurking around on GTI-R forums for years on and off, Seems to be a wealth of knowledge on here though, and its an active forum!

Ive had mainly RWD cars over the years, or been drifting when funds were there for track cars but im at the nice weekend road car stage of life now lol  Shocked

Ive just purchased a 1994 Pulsar GTI-R after years of not getting around to owning one.

Ill throw up a project section when my 7 days external links parole is over  Laughing

Some poor quality pictures added.











Getting some tlc

I think as far as a modern japanese performance car goes this and the PS13 Silvia/R32 GTR are going to be the future "cossie" type car, i could be wrong but hopefully im not!!

nomad wrote:So you have had 200sx's then .. any other intresting cars along the way ???

Endless list lol, i have a small business facebook page Drift Bits (feel free to check it out) some of my imports are on there, some will have been removed as the page can get cluttered, there will be pictures of the cars in the "Photo's/Albums" though. Currently owned/pre sold i have a 1JZ manual Toyota Cresta, two 1JZ manual Chasers, the GTI-R, a Toyota Altezza and a 1JZ manual Toyota Mark11. This year ive had probably 20 plus RWD cars pass through so the list is fairly big lol. I've had around 20 fresh JDM imports come into Ireland in 2015, sadly i drive a 05 transit daily Shocked

So finally i can post pictures lol. Its quite tatty looking and probably hasnt been washed in 6-7 years and definitely needs a respray imo. (First post)

Been busy gathering bits and pieces for this lady over the last month, i brought the car up to a local guy in Ireland that knows these inside out. Turned out an oil leak i had was a cracked sump, sump replaced now so all good again on that end.

So whats been done in the past few weeks:
Sump replaced
Cheaper oil ran through and dumped out after 15 minutes for some nice Fuchs 15/50 Pro R
New Redline shockproof gearbox oil put in, need to do the diff and transfer box next
New Genuine oil and fuel filters
New Iridium plugs
Front Wilwoods bled but im still finding them piss poor?

Car is running much better but still it needs a new map on it.

Picked up so far:
A clean passenger side headlight and indicator to match the drivers side
Spare rear lights as one on the car is cracked
Got a set of matching cleaner front seats (need a rear also)
Picked up a mid boot spoiler off Stu on here
Spare gearbox bought


Should be in for mapping shortly so we will see how that goes

They are NGK BKR8EIX which should cope with the power, its what ive run in any of my drift cars and they never let me down or need replacing. BCR are grand on standard power but ive seen plenty break up on higher powered SR20's (Sorry i updated into, projects post updated)

Be careful with iridium plugs!
Gtirs tend to melt the ends of them off!!
