A quite quick estate car (Stagea)

now with pics a quite quick estate car

Just registered so a few details of my car which I think qualifies as unusual

Car is a Nissan Stagea - basically a skyline estate. Most have the single turbo RB25 engine with auto box and are quite rare.

This however one is one of the even rarer cars with 4wd and the twin turbo GTR engine and manual gearbox .

Cant post pics yet (under 10 posts) so a brief spec as I dont want to make my first post an essay

Tuned RB26DETT engine dynod at 413 bhp with 340 ftlbs of tourque at 3500 rpm.
Nismo body kit and recaro interior,
Uprated brakes , suspension and steering .etc.
Anyway Im now off to look at the rest of the site.

Now have 10 posts so here are some pics

Re: A quite quick estate car

That is one nice ride. Is it expensive to run? Whats the best things and worst thing about owning it? What mods are you planning to do? Why did you buy it - is the nearest you could get to a sensible car to keep the other half happy :lol:?

1 ty
2 yes
3 best is scaring porsche caymen drivers .............. :shock: (WTFWT) :shock:
worst is probably 2
4 see spec list
5 I import stageas so had to have a rb 26 one as its such a good sleeper
6 its almost sensible ! :lol: but I have a sensible slk ( only has a few brabus bits)
spec
Engine - Rebuilt R32GTR rb26 twin turbo has twin apexi power induction with apexi elbows ; HKS EVC5 electronic boost control (max 1 bar)
Has Greddy iridium racing plugs , splitfire coilpacks , Full earthing kit ,
Has uprated Nismo clutch and 5 sp manual GTR gearbox.
Its has the ATTESSA AWD system ( same as a GTR)
Cooling - front mounted HKS intercooler with hardpipes , HKS aluminium alloy radiator , Front mounted HKS oil cooler (thermostatically controlled)
Engine management - Apexi Power FC mapped by Rob at Perfect Touch (the guy that mapped the lemon if that means anything) Has Apexi el 2 White electronoic gauges with warning and 30 sec playback ( Boost ,fuel p oil temp ,EXT)
Exhaust - twin HKS downpipes 3" decat and 80mm custom stainless rear box :twisted: - its loud
Brakes are Brembos and vented discs from 2001 R34 GTR v spec ( and hubs) with Nismo braided hoses . Wheels are AVS model 7 with F1s .
Handling- Lowered with adjustable Bistein monotube Suspension with Whiteline springs , Also has uprated adjustable anti roll bars (whiteline) and cusco rear adjustable camber arm.
Arrived from Japan with a custom sound system which is amazing when parked but little use when the revs are below 4k rpm ( or above for that matter )
The complete bodykit is genuine Nismo with series 2 crystal lights. Interior is chacoal/seude recaros with interior retrimmed to match.
The engine is pretty much sorted to a level that means any more power will cost lots of ££££s and might stress the internals.
So for the time being no more Modifications

Re: A quite quick estate car

Nice spec. Seems to be pretty sensibly modded to me (in the sense that any more would blow the thing up!). Have you ever done a quarter mile run in it?

What a sleeper. We don't see a lot of wagons here in the states. British racing green is pretty rare too. You must catch a lot of cars flat footed. Keep us posted on your mods. Always a good read!

What were you doing when it went bang? Was it a fried piston than killed it?

Head gasket = overheating = hello trailer goodbye engine

Of course earlier in the day had nothing to do with it .
I was having a 'little' drive around with a 365 a few TVRs and a lamborgini in a pistonheads convoy. Was pretty even actually apart from the 365 and one of the TVRs were a bit quicker well actually this TVR was a lot quicker

But not anymore you cant beat a good bit of boost

Not at all.
No point in having power and not ever using it.

It is only running 1.6 bar boost with twin turbos rather than a huge single and now has a forged engine with a special oil pump.

Because of the quality of the new parts the safe rev lmit has been raised to 8250 although its has seen nearly 9000 once .Theoretically the engine could handle close to 800bhp so it should be safe ........for now.

Its going on the dyno next saturday so it will be interedting to see what power it does actually have.
