    It all starts with an itch. 1984 GTX Skyline

    Here is a picture of my Skyline


    I've had the car for almost 8 years. I always thought that the engine bay was boring. Neat and clean, but boring.


    So, I thought to myself how about getting rid of the airflow meter and a couple of "useless" vacuum pipes. And that's where it all went terribly wrong. Why couldn't I just leave it the way it was.

    Yes thank you. The whole car was a limited edition done by Nissan South Africa. I am trying to get more info on it. It has these weird side shirts. I lost one of the back ones and it is almost impossible to find one.

    Nice little ride you got there. Looks like a blast to cruise in. Does it have L28 motor? I have an 810 I think there 180b in your part, ours has a l24 though.

    Yes it has got an L28 in it. For most people around the world that seems a bit odd. Coming from South Africa it feels a bit odd for me to have a 2 door Skyline with out a straight six in it.

    I previously used some L24 rods in a stroker build I have done. LD28 crank, 9mm bolt L24 rods and you will not believe it, but after hours upon hours of measuring in the scrapyards some BMW pistons. After machining everything that there is to machine on the pistons I saved close to 2 kg on the rod/piston combo.

    Man, I'll give my left ball for them. I lost one of mine due to wear and tear. Would you be interested getting rid of them?

    Here is some pics of the Kanmeari adjustable timing gear set. I read that they should not be used for road use that's why I made a adjustable arm to keep it from moving. I could not fit the one that they sell due to the power-steering set-up.
