The J-Spec Mileage Promise

Speedo tampering is rife in the Australian market to the point where more imports than not sold by Australian dealers have had their mileage wound back. See how importing yourself easily avoids this pitfall.

Nissan Skyline (R33 series)

R33 Skyline production began in 1993 (GTR in 1995) and ran until 1998 with coupe and sedan models manufactured. For all but the base models the RB engine saw a 500cc bump in displacement to 2,500cc with increased power and torque to match, however the car also gained some weight, though it was with good reason as the car had now greater interior space and chassis rigidity compared with the R32.

Series 2 Skylines were released in 1996 and featured different headlights, bumpers, rear wing, dual airbags as standard, different interior trim, different turbo spec, rear chassis brace and other minor changes. GTR's did not receive the external body changes. 1995 models are often referred to as a series 1.5 as they were a series 1 with some series 2 features, in particular the series 2 rear wing and single airbag as standard. Slight tweaks to the turbos and exhaust system saw greater power and torque, and the ATTESA all wheel drive system and HICAS 4 wheel steering also underwent improvement.

Turbo models had 184kW (250hp) and non turbo 2.5L models had 140kW (190hp), while the GTR had the Japanese maximum 208kW (280hp).
