1989 Nissan Skyline R31 Silhouette GTS2 (SVD)

This rare R31 GTS2 sedan was last seen for sale on Skylines Australia forums in 2007, asking $12,750. Unfortunately we did not see where the car was located at the time. This is build number 85 of 200, and seems to be in exceptionally good condition back in 2007. This car has the rare manual transmission, which counted for less than half of the cars produced.

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.
