Variable Inlet Cam Phasing – Nissan Skyline GT R33


This 1996 Skyline GT R33 is a two wheel drive forth generation Skyline. The front bumper and spoiler on this one appears to be an after market item.


Power was delivered by an RB25DET 250 hp twin turbo 2490cc / 151 cui straight 6 engine which featured variable inlet cam phasing ( NVCS ). Many of these vehicles have been sent to engine specialists for radical tuning, racing versions of these engines have shown over 500 hp.


It is thought that 217,133 R33 Skylines were produced from 1993 – 1998 and sold in Japan, Hong Kong, Australia and the UK, although officially imported many more are thought to have arrived in the UK as personal ‘grey’ imports.

Hope you have enjoyed today’s NVCS edition of ‘Getting a little Psycho on Tyres’ and that you’ll join me again tomorrow. Don’t forget to come back now !
