FJ20ET Pintara RB20DET Pintara HR30 Skyline FJ20 into HR31 Skyline
HR31 Front Strut Replacement
HR31 HICAS Steering Reconditioning
After many years I am pleased to say that I have finished the conversion in my HR31 Skyline. It is now powered by the mighty FJ20ET.
This is how she looks these days...
I am especially proud of the number plates. I think they're just the icing on the cake! :-)
Behind the driver's side vent in the bar is a 36 row B&M Racing oil cooler. Behind the passenger side vent (the stock one) is a H/D power steering cooler. The following picture shows why it needed a power steering cooler...
The reservoir is right next to the exhaust housing of the turbo! I've made a stainless shield for it, but I wanted a cooler all the same.
First up I should explain - this was never meant to be a race car, it's too heavy - just a nice cruiser that has some grunt when you put the foot down - and that's exactly what it is. :-)

I'm also pleased to say that the HICAS works beautifully
As does the Autospoiler
Has had a rack rebuild and steers excellently
It has had a full gearbox rebuild and shifts like a dream
Has had new strut inserts in the front and is much more controlled on rough roads
Rotates tyres (on private roads) on boost in 2nd gear at 15psi. Not a bad feat for a 1390kg car with sticky 245 Goodyear Eagle F1's on the rear
It now has a 12" sub and amp package (Clarion) in the boot, which is good because it still has useable boot space! and is removable should I need the room
The ECU is now an EMS DualSport. This is as far as it can be upgraded without going to the next generation of computers. It's going ok so far!
16x7 front and 16x9 rear BBS rims, with 205/50x16 and 245/45x16 tyres respectively
Things I'm doing at the moment are:
Upgrading the old fittings for
water cooling of the turbo to Speedflow fittings - to stop the weeping Installing Walbro 500HP fuel
pump Installing aftermarket fuel
rail with Speedflow fittings Installing 780cc injectors
Things I plan to do in the near future:
Re-tune ECU for whatever boost this turbo will push
Hopefully have some fun! :-)
This is my other vehicle - what's left of a Suzuki Sierra
It has 37" tyres and a 1.6L Vitara engine. 6.1 RockCrawler gears in the transfer case and rides on Hilux diffs and springs!
Full cage and stainless fuel cell, tube rear end, 12000lb winch (about 5.5 tonnes) and placed 8th out of 37 other trucks in the 2006 Tuff Truck Challenge!
