R32 / R33 / R34 Skyline (1989-2002)
Nissan’s twin-turbocharged Skyline GT-R (R32, R33 and R34) served as the company’s flagship sportscar until the R34 went out of production in 2002. Nissan designed the Skyline’s RB26DETT engine for performance, making it a prime candidate for higher boost levels and elevated output. Properly sized turbochargers paired a built bottom end and cylinder head can generate horsepower output of over 1,200whp.

Although the Skyline GT-R comes equipped from the factory with twin turbochargers, Full-Race offers both single-turbo and twin-turbocharged solutions to suit the needs of everyone from the weekend road racer and time attack racer to drag racing demons. Full-Race offers both single scroll and twin scroll turbochargers from brands like Garrett and BorgWarner. In addition, you will find a full host of ancillary components ranging from intercoolers to wastegates. Our ETS-Pro Torque Split Controller provides complete control over Nissan’s Multi-plate transfer case, which many regard as a mandatory upgrade for high-output R32 applications.
Nissan’s mighty Skyline GT-R is one of the most coveted and sought after JDM sportscars. The early Skyline GT-Rs (chassis code R32) dominated in racing, so much so that they were forced into their own racing class shortly after. What sets the Skyline apart from the rest lay in its engineering and design. A high-revving, 276 horsepower RB26DETT engine resides under the hood. This twin-turbocharged inline-six channeled power to all four wheels by way of Nissan's ETS all-wheel driveline. This powertrain worked harmoniously with the well-balanced chassis, resulting in a quick and neutral handling sportscar.
The heart of every Skyline GT-R is the remarkable RB26DETT engine. This 2.6-liter six-cylinder features an iron block with 86mm bore and a 73.7mm stroke. The relatively small pistons and short stroke permitted the RB26 to rev up to 9,000 RPM and more with relative ease. The acclaim and respect garnered by this legendary engine prompted broad support from the aftermarket. Soon after, products ranging from the usual bolt-on components to valvetrain and rotating assembly upgrades became available. Later, stroker kits that increase the engine’s displacement to 3.0-liters and more became available, all of which complemented turbo upgrades.
