1989 Nissan Skyline R31 Silhouette GTS2 (SVD)

Advertised for sale on R31Forums in January 2016, this is one of just 200 GTS2 cars produced, as successor to the GTS1 of 1988. This particular car is build number 151. The seller made the following notes at the time of advertising:

"The vehicle had spent many years in storage, I acquired the car as a replacement for my Ti which i regretted selling. It is currently been used as a third car and only gets driven when the mood is right. The car is in surprisingly good condition (mechanically and cosmetically) I will be keeping it fairly standard, only serviceable items will be replaced along with ongoing maintenance."

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.
