PROJECT CAR CONFIDENTIAL – MURDOCK’S ’96 NISSAN SKYLINE R33
Today on Project Car Confidential, we’re looking under the hood of one of the most popular tuner car models in the world… the R33 Skyline.
A car which gained worldwide notoriety from being featured in several editions of Need For Speed, Gran Turismo and Forza video games, the R33 Skyline was introduced in August 1993. Slightly heavier than the R32, it is available in coupe and sedan body styles with all models using a 6-cylinder engine.

Today’s Project Car owner is Murdock. As a faithful Nissan guy to the bone, Murdock previously owned a B14, which he had done a bit of work on. In June 2011, when he got the opportunity to have this R33 Skyline in his garage , Murdock immediately stepped up. The car was in relatively good condition when he got it and he only had to change the turbo gasket and water pump.
What’s Under the Hood
Murdock’s R33 Skyline is still standard under the hood but that will soon change.
What else has been done
- Momo Racing Wheel
- Dashboard Gauges (oil pressure, oil temperature, boost and shift light)
- Sits on Black 17inch Rims
Murdock has several plans for his car which includes putting on a bigger turbo, changing the front mount intercooler and management. Adrenaline Sun will keep you up to date on this project as it develops
