1989 Nissan Skyline R31 Silhouette GTS2 (SVD)

This Skyline SVD is number 107 of 200 built, and was offered for sale/swap through Facebook in August 2016. Very few details of the car are known, and unfortunately we've only been able to confirm its claimed build number through the advertisement. The car appears to be in all-original condition, with some wear/tear reaosnable for its age. If you know where the car is now located or own thic car yourself, please contact us so we can update the car's profile.

The GTS2 was a follow up to the GTS1 of 1988, produced by Nissan's Special Vehicles Division, who built these cars at the same time that the Skyline was competing in the Australia Touring Car Championship. The GTS2 had the following features:

  • LSD,
  • 6 spoke 16" white powder coated mags.
  • rear spoiler with stop lamp.
  • sports interior.
  • 97 of these vehicles were blessed with a manual transmission, while the remaining 103 received an automatic transmission.
  • Stage 3 camshaft, original ECU piggy backed to run ignition timing for camshaft, ported exhaust ports, extractors, 2.5' exhaust, oil cooler and auxiliary auto transmission cooler. GTS2 camshaft is similar to AVO stage 3 camshaft. It has a piggyback to the ECU to modify injection pulse width/timing.
  • Porting - increase flow at low valve lift figures. In the GTS2 it is only really seen at about 6000 rpm (not achieved with regular driving). Must match valve cutting and flow to be effective. GTS2 apparently only has the exhaust ported.

We run both a Skyline R31 GTS1 Register and a Skyline R31 GTS2 register. ‚ÄčIf you own a GTS1 or GTS2, please contact us or just sign up quickly and add your car to Classic Register.
