Hi All,

As an introduction my name is Lewis, I've just picked up a 1995 GTiR from a friend from work, it's been off the road for about 7 years now he's owned it for nearly 10.

I first went out in it when I was a 19 years old and fell in love with it.. I'm now 26 and I've been pestering him to buy it for all of those years, he's finally caved.

It's had some minor remedial work done recently but needs a full service/all fluids swapping. It was bit hesitant under full load at peak boost but when it cleared its lungs fk me it flew! Seems to be much better with fresh fuel/some injector cleaner. It's a very tidy car with only a really small blister of rust on the NSR Arch. I have had it on a ramp Saturday and found one thing I'm not happy with but I'll post a separate thread regarding that.

It's had some extensive work done to it also over the years and it's a bit of a weapon to drive, probably nothing compared to some of the 400-500bhp monsters on here but to me it's bang on... Needless to say I'm very excited and feel privileged to own such a car, even if it's going to be a Pain in the Ass/Wallet.

Spec (As much as I can remember, for the sake of me writing it down somewhere!):
Approx 60k miles
Radtec Custom FMIC/Rad
Full Mongoose Exhaust System with 5" backbox (Smaller tip will be one of my first jobs!)
HKS Mushroom Air Filter
HKS EVC 5 Boost Controller (1.25 Bar Boost)
HKS 264 Cams
Turbo Timer
Silicone Coolant/Boost Hoses
B&M Quick Shift
Exedy Organic Clutch
Nismo Springs/Dampers
Carbon Bonnet
Carbon Spoiler
Strut/Underbody Braces
Whiteline ARB's
Whiteline Anti-lift Kit
A/C Deleted
Hi-Spec Billet 4's
Rota Slipstreams with Toyo T1R's
HKS Spark Plug Cover
Nismo Wheel
Umbrella pirat
I'm told it's running 280bhp Low boost / 300 High Boost which sounds about right

Sorry for the shit pics, They're all I've got at the moment
