    My '72 Nissan Skyline GTX Hakosuka

    Here is a quick teaser shot of my '72 Hako I purchased from JDM Legends. I'll keep this thread up and post up updates as time goes on. Motor is stock L20, but has the upgraded twin, side-draft SU carburetors. GTR aesthetic exterior modifications completed and a Fujitsubo exhaust. Wheels are Volk TE37v's in 15x9 (-15) and 15 x10 (-25).

    I think I bought the hood trim from your car. The car looks great.

    Car looks great. What size are your rear tires and what is your suspension setup??

    Let me know how the Fujitsubo sounds!

    Hey amorphiss,

    Tire specs are Falken ZE-912's in a 205/50/15 and 225/50/15. Here is a pic of the suspension.



    Weld-on-coilover kit with Front & Rear Koni Shocks, Front T3 adjustable camber plates, Rear RS Start adjustable collar w/ springs , Custom rear strut mounts (and zinc coated), and also picked up a set of new rear strut bushings.

    Excellent choices for the suspension components. I will too get the rear collars and short throw shocks, someday..

    Been looking for a set of long champs for my Hako, and had these built by Araya wheels with the same sizing as the TE37v's (15x9 -15 and 15x10 -25).
