NISSAN Skyline GTR R34 New Performances

The car isn’t being produced anymore, which adds a certain element of allure to it, particularly if a tuning company like SP Engineering has their hands on one. So here it is, a 2002 Skyline R34 GT-R that has been modified to insane numbers that even the GT-R has to bow to.

The Nissan Skyline GTR R34 has elvoled and fine-tuned through 11 years of competitive racing and extensive testing, which has resulted in one of the best race-bred coupes on the market.

The R33 which it replaced was a great car but the R34 GTR is much more advanced in every area. Under the hood are twin ceramic intercooled turbochargers, which effectively eliminate turbo-lag. The RB26DETT in-line, 2568cc six-cylinder engine retains the 280PS at 6,800 rpm of the R33 it replaced. It also has better power delivery and more torque than it predecessor. Also the R34’s body is stiffer and the aerodynamics of the car have been improved.

Aesthetically, SP Engineering took the time to add an aerodynamic kit to the Skyline R34 GT-R, which includes a new Nismo front bumper, a carbon-fiber lip, an under tray, an FRP aero hood, new side skirts, a rear wing, ARC rear under-diffuser, Nismo carbon-fiber door pillar covers, and a new set of 19″ Volk Racing alloy wheels with a Brembo GT brake kit. The interior also gets its share of new goodies, including a Nismo gauge cluster, floor mats, a suede steering wheel, Works Bell quick release, and dry carbon panels.

Also the R34’s body is stiffer and the aerodynamics of the car have been improved.

The R34’s engine keeps the general layout of straight six-cylinder configuration with twin overhead camshafts and four-valves per cylinder and twin turbochargers. As before, the throttle chamber has six individual throttle valves (one per cylinder) isolating each engine cylinder from the rest and acting like six individual single-cylinder engines. The power is fed through a new six-speed close ratio Getrag gearbox.

Then, there’s the engine modification, which to say the least, is eye-popping. SP Engineering managed to put some insane juice on the Skyline’s 2.5-liter RB26DETT straight 6-cylinder bi-turbo engine to the tune of 982 horsepower and 660 lb/ft of torque with the use of a few choice elements. These include Garret twin GT35 turbos, an HKS exhaust manifold, DLI II Twin Power ignition amplifier, and a GReddy Type R three-row front-mount intercooler kit. Other features of the engine remodel are Type R blow-off valves, a Hypertune intake manifold, an SP Engineering intake, 8 Denso 1,000cc injectors, TITEK Innovations high-flow fuel pump, and an ARC radiator. Last, but not least, a Hollinger sequential transmission was fitted with an OS Giken triple-plate.
