    New member with a new to me 1983 Skyline RSX

    Hi,

    New to the forum. I imported this 83 DR30 a few weeks ago, getting back into classic car ownership. The car is in good shape over all, and i'm pleased with it so far. It's a non-intercooled FJ20. Any other R30 or DR30 owners on here?

    Hey thanks for the links. Nice DR30! Is see your factory boost limit valve is gone. What kind of boost are you running with the bigger turbo?

    I need some rear window seals for mine. Any Nissan suppliers you know of that ship to the US?

    I've seen the RS Turbo that's in California, but haven't seen any Iron Mask DR30's in the states yet other than mine. I'm going to a local Nissan meet on Sunday, maybe I can track down some more.

    I have a factory R30 parts manual from Saudi Arabia if it will help anyone. It's for the LHD cars sold in that Market. It doesn't include any FJ20 parts. It does include some interesting things like "tropics" radiator options.

    I don't own a skyline, but a 78 Toyota Cressida, but that's aside the fact that you live in VA!

    Cheers!

    currently the moment my car is running 12psi with my VG30 Ball Bearing turbo. with 121RWKW / 157 RWHP.

    there are quite a few DR30 nuts on Skylines Australia who are much more knowledgable then myself, Here is a link where they all hang out (In the classic section)

    Have you tried your local Nissan dealer? I managed to get some parts through them before.

    Also somwhere on www.fj20.com there should be some diagrams with part numbers.




    Any plans for your skyline or keeping it show room?

    Thanks for the info. I have a line on some coming from Australia. I have what I think is the part # but it comes up here as a b13 Sentra seal. The part #'s must be shared..? Most dealers here wouldn't even entertain the thought of ordering something special for you. That goes for MC dealers too.

    I plan on keeping the car stock for the time being and just working on fixing all the little things it needs. It was taken care of for years by the looks of it, and let to slip away the last few years. I did order some cheap ($387 shipped(4)) XXR 513 wheels for it until I do an S13 suspenion swap or something similar. The rotors and pads don't exist here in the US so when it needs brakes that will be the time.

    Ex-DR30 owner here, I've had two actually a sedan and a coupe both RS's, one turbo one NA. I loved the NA, thought it was a really nicely balanced car.
