We have been waiting to release the final batch of photos from our R32 build and figured since it has been over a month since the car left the shop that now was as good of a time as any to release the final project update. If you haven’t check out the earlier blog posts covering the GTR build, you can check out the extensive Part 3, the Part 2 mini blog , and the Part 1 introduction.
There wasn’t much left to do on the car to get it ready for its new home.
We fabricated intercooler piping to mate the twin Garrett turbos to the Abbey Road Company intercooler…
…and to the intake manifold!
It’s the small things. Project Mu magnetic aluminum drain plug looks nice under there.
Fitting up the full carbon five piece diffuser!
Some slight modifications to fit the Leask Spec full titanium exhaust…
and the diffuser is installed!
Installing the front carbon lip/undertray to the OEM polyurethane GTR lip.
We sourced a rare NIISMO 320 km/h gauge cluster for this car from Japan.
We went with STANCE Suspension XR2 2-way adjustable coilovers with aluminum damper casings and SWIFT springs on the car, it is going to see occasional track use and also be street driven so the dampers were custom-valved to give the car an extra edge.
Rust proof and 30% lighter than a standard damper casing!
MINE’S Japan down-pipe mated to the Leask-Spec exhaust.
Hello beautiful. NISMO Omori Factory Spec LMGT4s are a more than appropriate fit for this car.
The engraved logo is a really nice touch, it really pops on the gloss black finish.
Out with the old! The stock wheels will find a new home soon.
Carbon fiber rocket flap installed on the factory GTR wing!
Quick alignment before the car goes off to the body shop for a few things to be resprayed, paint correction and the final mounting of the aero!
Fresh out of paint retouching, you can really see the pearlescent qualities in the TH1 paint. Car is going out for tuning and will be back in shop to button up a few things then the owner will be flying in to pick up the car!
Detail shot of the NISMO cluster.
The blue really is lovely.
So is this full titanium exhaust!
The LMGT4s are wrapped in fresh @ZestinoRacing Gredge 07RS tires.
She will be leaving soon!
The last time this car will be on a lift here at TF. Everything is buttoned up 100%, the owner will be picking up the car soon.
This is the look of someone who bought a car and as soon as it hit the states, sent it to us at TF for a complete build and has finally been able to lay his eyes on it for the very first time. It came straight to us from the importer so Jon had never seen or driven the car prior to the pickup. We would feel the same way for sure.
Finishing touch on the car, a freshly designed TF-Works logo to christen the build.
The first pull down the street…
And a dozen pulls later!
Jon is from Virginia, and will be driving the car 14 hours back home. Definitely one hell of a maiden voyage!
Of course we brought out our own Mustang out to play with the GTR.
It has been a long build, and without a doubt one of the most rewarding we’ve done. Thanks to everyone who followed along on here, on Instagram and on our Facebook. A huge thanks goes out to Zestino Racing, Leask-Spec, and Stance Suspension for partnering with us on the car.
Finally, thank you to Jon who has been a loyal customer for many years and who trusted us with his dream GTR build. If you’d like to see updates on the car, be sure to check out his Instagram (@paik_man). We are currently in the process of building another car for Jon, so be sure to check out the TF Blog and social media for updates on the K24-powered AE86!
