Hi All,

Some of you may have seen this build thread, but with sites closing down i thought i better move it to a few more locations, also i will be adding to it shortly as i have done a lot more work on this car over the last year.

Since about september 2009 i started doing my partners gti-r up which had been sitting infront of the house for three years.

First things first the engine was toast. Some clown shoe's had put valve grind into it with an oil change.. You can imagine the results.

So I was on the hunt for a new engine. After 3-4 months of looking i found one i thought was the business. 180psi of compression on all four cyliners. MINT!!

So out came the old engine.

And in with the new one.

Once we put the new engine in we poped the rocker cover off.

And to my shock the intake cam was completly rooted. Looks as though one of the top oil sqirters had blocked and starved the head of oil..

Great!

So out with the cams, rocker arms and shims..

I re-drilled the oil sqirters to a slightly larger diamater and blew all the rubbish out of them with a air compressor.

So i found some second hand cams in the garage with some rockers and put them back in. After some very painful Re-shimming the head was good to be started again.

As you can imagine after sitting in the weather for three years untouched just about everything was stuffed on this car.. So alot of stuff was just replaced. c.v joints and boots, shocks, a few bushes. was a nightmare.

To top things off once we tried to start it it would not go..

After some mucking around i decided to go see Barry at MSM motorsport in Penrose Auckland if theres something i cannot work out on a nissan I know Barry is the man to see. Top bloke recommend him to everyone.

After a swift wack around the head from him we descovered that the cam timing was out by 2 teeth..

Doh!

So after re-doing that.. (you know what that means getting that dam cam chain tensioner out and back in..) the car sprang to life..

Followed by massive clouds of white smoke.. expected though the turbo had been sitting for 3 years. On inspection the oil seals had gone. So i decided to give DSR turbos ago..

Turned out to be a bad idea .

But everything was going and in the midst of it i had installed
550cc injectors
Q45 MAF
my old PLMS daughter board into the ECU with 4 way map switcher
greddy profect B boost controller
Apexi air filter
Jun Light wieght flywheel
5 puk carbon kevlar clutch and uprated 2300ibs pressure plate
Front mount with custom piping
3inch exuast with 3inch custom downpipe
DSR 380 turbo
Polished top plenuim
HKS limited edition B.O.V
Plus a few more things iv probably forgotten about.

So it was off for the tune.

We later found that the DSR turbo had a manufactures fault and would not boost past 10psi..

But i was entered in the 4 & Rotorary Nationals 2010 so we tuned it the best we could and went racing... well driving 400m in a streight line.

Running at the 2010 4 and rotarys

So ended up doing 13.7 as the best time in the car with the rubbish turbo.

So i went and bought a Garrett Gt25/40.

On some real good inspection on the hoist i found that the shell was developing some good rust in the wheel arches. Along with the side of the car and also a old weld repair on the rear quater was starting to come through..

I though stuff this and purchased a new shell.

The Shell used to belong to a mate who poored over 60k into the car i think. I was lucky enough to get a ride in it before he sold it.

The car was stolen from the new owner and stripped.

But the shell was recovered.

I picked it up in the condition below

Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild 130959358_full
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild 130959304_full

So the ground up rebuild begain. Two shells one set of running gear and a bucket of money...

So the swap over begins.

Ok the strip down.

8.50am i arrived at my MSM Automotive Limited with a running driving road legal Gti-r

By 5.30pm we had fully stripped it down to the bare shell.

Ok so in between here and being finished there are not alot of pictures as it was a very mad rush to have the car ready for the 2011 4 and rotarys show and drags.

.
Unfortunilty the drags the next day didnt go so well. Blowing the ringlands on the first run causing the car to be parked up for the rest of the day... So engine out next week for a bottom end rebuild with some forged pistons.
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF3530
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild Fghfg

So the engine let go on 26psi on its first run down the drag strip. 7 months of hard work by me and my mates. Also MSM Automotive. The only thing we did not touch in the build was the bottom end as i have run Gti-rs with 500hp on stock bottom ends before. This one did not last so well though.

So the block has been removed and has been sent to Reg Cook. It will return good for 700hp.

The Damage

The ringlands just didnt like the boost... Stay tuned i will update this as the engine comes back together!
I have also fitted front and rear nismo mechanical lsds as well Smile

Well i imported a few bits from the UK at the start of the year:

AP 6 pot front calipers and 330MM twin hat rotors with machined adapter plates for the calipers
Full Carbon Fibre bonnet
Full Carbon Fibre wing
Carbon Wing mirrors
Carbon front grill
A custom gear stabilizer bracket to make selection more firm
Adjustable rose jointed sway bar links front

That all went well got them into the country.

Had the bottom end forged by reg cook. CP 87mm forged pistons, Eagle Rods with the 19mm bearings suited to gti-rs, all new nissan bearings, and all the other bits and bobs, oil pump done, oil galleries machined to flow more pressure, new water pump, new cam chain, crank was crack tested, engine blue printed and everything balanced.

Then i was lucky enough to stumble on a fully set up Jun cylinder head. So that is now fitted to the car with Jun everything. Stainless valves and retianers, Jun valve springs, Jun 268 cams, Jun adjustable cam gears. Should be good.

Imported the new Tomei head gasket from japan.

Imported three new gauges from USA Autometer.

Got all my interior carbon coated including rocker cover as well.

Now just got to put it all back together.

Well while it was on a hoist. Changed the rear diff over to a Nismo Mechanical item.

Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4190

Only picture i got whilst this was happening. Diff oil is messy stuff.

So with the brakes on.. i then had the issue of my old wheels did not fit.. ok time to start looking for some new ones.

I hate wheel shopping!!

Started with some Enkei racing wheels. 4x100 38P 17x7.5
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4214
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4215
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4216

They did not fit. Dam i liked the look of them.

So SSR Light weight wheels where up next. 4x100 38P 17x7.5

Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4219Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4220
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4217

Needless to say they did not fit. Sad

Well ok,

How about some Rays 4x100 40p 17x7
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4223
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4222

They went on well. Only 5mm spacers needed to make them fit. Sat inside the guards and did not foul on the struts. Only trouble is i didn't like the look of them.

So..OZ Racing wheels, these where my second choice to buy. They were heavy but made well compared to some of the other wheels. 4x100 18x7 40p

Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4231
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4239

Fitted and looked good, the only thing that bothered me was the weight. To heavy.

So Tried some Advanti light weight racing wheels. I liked them until i flipped them over and saw the nasty casting marks. No thanks looks weak.

Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4228

These would have been my first choice if they would have fitted. So nice. 5Zigen racing wheels 18x7.5 4x100 38p.

Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4233
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4234
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4236

No way where these going to fit though. without wide kitting the car and running 20mm spacers.

I then was given these to try.. was not that keen on them. But they were so light. Forged, expensive but made for racing. Enkei wheels, 17x7 40p 4x100.

Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4249
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4247
Red Gti-r DIEGSR - Complete Rebuild DSCF4259

When put on they bolted up perfectly. We can almost get away with running no spacers at all. 5mm spacers will be run to start with though.

So they were bought, Toyo T1r tires fitted.

And here is what is currently on the front to move the car around the workshop. 15mm spacers required.

I knew you had done a lot to the car but didn't realise it was this intense!
Stunning car and build to say the least.
