If I lived in canada or somewhere else where it's legal, i'd be all over an R32...

but because of the whole motorex debacle, it's just not worth it stateside for the moment...


good luck on your sale!



hindsight is 20/20, but in the late 90s when the exchange rate was more like 150yen/$1, you could get a nice hako for about $15K give or take...
Those days are unfortunately long gone...

Makes you wish someone would hurry up and invent a 88mph DMC-12 already... ;)

I don't know what Japanese brand the muffler is, but I suspect it's one of the typical ones on offer from Victory50, Rubber+Soul, and the like...

Also Trust used to make these dual-tip exhausts too for older cars. Don't think they stock em anymore tho.

I got busy with work after JCCS and couldn't spend much time on it to finish it up...

But last sunday night I spent a couple hours on it, tried to start it, and came to the realization that i have a timing issue.
I chased my tail for a couple hours and didn't solve it.

I am close to certain I did crank to cam timing correct:

i used dial calipers to ensure i was at tdc for cyl1 before i put head on block.
cam & crank sprockets are keyed so there's no messing those up.
the witness marks on the cam and crank sprockets along with the right number of timing chain links between them make that hard to mess that up too...

So I thought my issue was at distributor timing, it felt like my oil pump drive gear was off by a tooth or two (too advanced) so I messed with it, re-set it a couple times and it didn't get better.

I need to go back and check everything again.
I'm close, but it's not running yet.

Hey Eric first off I just wanted to congratulate you on your awesome thread and your beautiful Hako, your's and Kev's are the most gorgeous Hako's out there :) But I was wondering if I could possibly get your wheel and tire fitment as I'm looking to fit some Minilite Magstyle on my 67 Camaro and would love to rock the kind of fitment that you're running on your Hako.

Thanks a bunch! :)

I can´t believe I´ve missed this thread. Oh well, it was a nice Sunday read, all of the pages. :) It´s a very nice Hako you got Eric! Congrats!

Now, a few pages back you described how you replaced the bolts with the D-shaped heads and those look VERY familiar. I´m running a shop in Sweden that works on the R35 GT-R´s and the ones you posted pics of looks just like the ones that holds the front prop shafts together on the R35. I can´t say that they are the same since you haven´t posted any measurements but if you do I can compare them.

If they are the same and if you want them, you can buy them from your nearest dealer that sells GT-R parts. I´ll get the part number if you want it. I couldn´t find it right now since Nissans picture in their FAST system wasn´t detailed enough.

Was very pleasantly surprised by the driveshaft bolts that are on the car... Check them out! The ones on the car had a nice oversized D-shaped head that makes installing / removing them a single tool operation... The shiny new one is what's commonly available for S30 Z here in the States at places like MSA... Requires two wrenches and is a hair short and can be a bit of a P I T A... New and old share the same pitch / thread! Score a WIN there!

@Perra:

Cool!

Good to know these clever little buggers have been retained for R35!
Thanks for pointing that out...

@KPGC10_Dreamer:

15x8 in the front, 15x10 in the back
RS Watanabe rims of course...

But wouldn't your Camaro require different offset / sizing ?
What did the SCCA TransAm Camaros run for sizing back in the day?
Your car is after all A LOT bigger than a Hako...

No problem! If they are the same, I think we should add that part number to the Hakosuka Parts Interchangeability Thread that Kevin started so other owners can find them if needed. :)

2014's getting closer everyday! :D

good luck hunting down that gremlin. sounds like you got your timing chain on right, especially if you counted links and marked your sprockets. :tu:

Hi Aaron


Is US DOT still moving the 25yo cut-off up ever year?
I thought a while back they stopped that...

In CA the DMV / CARB stopped moving the smog cut off up every year several years back.
Currently all cars after 1975 still have to be smogged in CA.

What I don't get in all this is HOW a DR30 (for example) can then be legally registered and smogged in the state of CA.
Seems like the guys on here with DR30s are here out of state, or have the cars registered out of state, or aren't saying just what they had to do...

It will be interesting to research once 2014 rolls around...

DeRux's DR30 is Ca smog compliant and Ca registered. The others I cannot vouch for. Reid's DR is the only known CA dr30.

The SCCA TransAm Camaros usually ran 15X7 to 15X9 minilites actually, but of course they could never run as low of profile as you because the camaro IS so much heavier (1450KG compared to 1100KG before gutting) the load index would be far too low. But I just wanted general look from yours. I'll probably end up doing a 15X10 -10 in back and 15X8 +0 up front with the stubborn 5X120.65mm bolt pattern.

I've never imported a vehicle, but I did find this from NHTSA
8. Importing a vehicle that is at least 25 years old.
A motor vehicle that is at least 25 years old can be lawfully imported into the U.S. without regard to whether it complies with all applicable FMVSS.

There's more to read at that link and I'm sure there are other governing bodies like EPA and state regulations that will be involved.

Also, there are a lot of anxious people on the Nissan forums along with threads on predicted values.
