Skyline R33 GTS25-T
Nissan Skyline R33 GTS25T replaced the older R32 GTS-T. The newer
skyline is a larger car and weighs roughly 100kgs more. The overall
shape of the car looks more modern with smooth lines rather than sharp
edges. The new looks are debatable some like the newer styling of
the R33 and some prefer the harder edges of the R32.
interior of the nissan skyline R33 is roomy and looks more modern
then the previous model. A driverís side airbag was standard on 95
modes and above and a passengers side airbag is an option.
the road the first thing you notice is the extra punch from the engine
due to the extra tourque and power generated by the RB25DET. You can
feel the extra weight when cornering Though its still a great drive
but not quiet as direct or nibble through the bends as the R32. Light
suspension modifications improve handling significantly. The HICAS
4 wheel steering system has been improved with a new electronic system.
far the biggest improvement with this nissan skyline was the engine
the RB25DET is a ripper with loads more torque throughout the rev
range and a smoother power delivery. The engine has grown 500cc, has
a higher compression ratio 9.0.1, variable valve timing on the intake,
and a higher flowing head. The Turbo charger and intercooler are slightly
larger, and the standard maximum boost level is 7psi.
The bigger roomer Nissan Skyline R33
is overall a better car than the R32 with its modern refinements.
Its extra weight does hamper handling slightly compared to the previous
skyline but the new engine is a great improvement with plenty of potential.
