Thanks!
Yea I've got a buddy that owns one, the whole damn car runs off vacuum solenoids. Check the vacuum tubing for wear and tear and cracks, vacuum leaks were the bane of our existence one summer until we replaced every stock vacuum line with performance tubing. With the turbo's it can get pretty hot under those hoods cause theres not a lot of room.

from the research i did when i wanted to import one from Japan with my dad as a project car, only the R33 is makable to be "street legal". Also the r33 is the least sought after. This research was done when I was 17 in high school, so the import law/regulations might have changed since then.

I would really look into Canada as well cause they have a lot of imported Skylines that are modded.

Agreed, very interested to see it!

The GTS was the smaller single turbo model right? RB25DET?

Supra ftw!! Seems like you got a nice deal man. Be gentle with her, dont know squat about skylines but I'de imagine its pretty hard to find replacement parts and will be pricey
