Default Re: skyline model number info

r33


G means its a 2 door
GK means its an RB25DE, but doesnt tell you wether or not its a turbo just yet
B means its 2 wheel drive
R is the same on all R33's
T means its Type M
F means its manual
R33 for obvious reasons
V means forced induction


Some of it is:

G = body type
GK = RB25DE or RB25DET
B = 2WD (2 wheel drive)
R = ??
T = GTT, GTV, GTXT, GT4, GT4/L, GTX4
F = ?? (5 something-or-other, I'd say 5 speed manual)
R34 = well........
U = ??
D = ??
A = ??
- = not relevant
K = ?? (some sort of option)
J = ?? (some sort of option)
B = ?? (some sort of option)
- = not relevant

The first digit defines the body type... In this case G for 2 door Coupe... (It's B for 4 door Sedan)

The next 2 digits define the engine type and size (note: not the fact that it is NA or Turbo)... in this case GK for RB25DE(T)

The next digit (4) defines the drive type... In this case B for 2WD...

The next digit (5) is R across all R33's... I'm unsure of its significance... Some translation is required here...

The next digit (6) defines the model spec... (eg: GTS, GTS25, GTS4, GTS25T/M, GTS25/S, GTR, etc...) In this case it is T for GTS25T/M + GTS25/S (note: we still don't know if it is NA or turbo yet)

The next digit (7) defines the transmission... In this case A for 4 speed auto... (It's F for 5 speed manual)

The next 3 digits (8, 9 & 10) define the Model Series... In this case R33 for (duh) R33...

Now comes the tricky part...

The next digit (11) defines the induction system... In this case it's V for Forced Induction... (It's E for EGI / NA)... Some further translation is required here...

The next digit (12) can be either D or Z... I'm unsure of its significance... Some translation is required here...

The next digit (13) is A across all R33's... I'm unsure of its significance... Some translation is required here...


Shown below are all possible entries for the first 13 digits of the R33 Model Codes...



Note that different years have different designations for the digit (mainly to cater for the GTR's and GTS4's)...

R33 Model Codes (14-18)

Erghh... So many options...

The only one I have semi worked out is the last digit (18) which will be A if you have an Active LSD, B if you have ABS, and C if you have an Active LSD and ABS... There are heaps more options for digit 18 though...

It appears digit 14 is mainly focused on the wheel and tyre sizes...

It appears digit 15 is mainly focused on the electronic options (eg, ASCD (cruise), GT spoiler, etc)

I am unsure what digit 16 is mainly focused on...

It appears digit 17 is mainly focused on the AV options (eg, CD, MD, Stacker, etc...)

Character 12 for your VIN is 'D' and I'm not sure of its significance. On 33's this character can be either D or Z

Character 13 for your VIN is 'A' and again I'm not sure of its significance. Appears to be on all 33's

Characters 14-18 relate to options available for your car.



Char 14 relates to Super Hard Coat (S.H.C) (basically an optional paint protection)

Char 15 relates to a rear wiper

Char 16 relates to different trim and type M and 40th Anniversary

Char 17 relates to remote central locking

Char 18 relates to Viscous LSD + ABS 40th anniversary stitching on seats

14. Super Hard Coat
15. Rear wiper
16. Trunk Lid Rim + Type M 40th Anniversary
17. Remote Controlled Entry
18. Viscous LSD + ABS + Two Special 40th Anniversary Seats

Characters 12 and 13 appear in "kanji" so more difficult to interpret. Refer screen shot below (which is your VIN):
I have been able to work out what character 12 is though. 'D' means "domestic", so I'm assuming 'Z' is also domestic, but more specific due to the info contained within the brackets. This could even be a local dialect, but I'm not sure.

(n) internal, domestic, (P)
(n) cold (northern) district
(n) standard, level, (P)
