HJA is thrilled to present to you this meticulously crafted Series 3 R33 GT-R, skilfully assembled by the renowned Japanese GT-R tuning legends at Jun Auto and EXPERT Murata Motor Factory. This particular model truly shines as one of the most exceptional tuned R33 GT-Rs we've had in our inventory for a number of years!

EXPERT Murata Motor Factory, located in Hyogo Prefecture and managed by Daisuke Murata, is a renowned tuning shop. Murata-San is recognized for his perfectionism in his craft, particularly renowned for his meticulous attention to detail in all facets of tuning the legendary RB26 engine. Each component incorporated into Murata-San's builds undergoes a thorough selection process, with only those deemed necessary and advantageous being utilized.

The path to dominance begins with the engine. EXPERT proceeded to incorporate an array of reinforced components, including HKS 87mm forged pistons and JUN I-section forged connecting rods to strengthen the bottom end. Ensuring optimal lubrication, EXPERT also installed an HKS high-flow oil pump. The Cylinder head was sent to the Legends at JUN Tanaka to work their magic on.


The Trust T88 Single Turbo is known for its large capacity and crank horsepower potential. However, it also traditionally suffers from turbo lag due to its size. To combat this, Murata-San integrated a HKS V-Cam system, engineered to dynamically regulate intake valve timing. This optimization bolsters engine efficiency during lower and moderate speeds while maximizing power output at high RPMs.


Breathing in through the HKS High flow intake, the Trust T88 blows into HKS/Greddy intercooler piping and a Trust front-mount intercooler. The cooled air then makes its way up to the Nismo intake to be equally distributed into each cylinder. Sharing space in the nose with the Trust oil cooler kit, the Trust intercooler helps keep the intake charge temperature well under control.


The SARD swirl pot in the trunk plays a vital role in providing a steady supply of fuel. This is very helpful while tackling corners or during high G-force acceleration where a normal fuel tank might suffer from fuel starvation due to fuel sloshing. Hence, the swirl pot prevents any such misfortunes and ensures unrelenting, reliable performance.


In a recent inspection and dyno test carried out at Redline Tuning, the vehicle delivered an impressive 706bhp at 1.7 bar, showcasing substantial untapped potential. During a subsequent road test, the team at Redline Tuning was amazed by the car's performance, noting that it felt notably faster than even its impressive dyno results suggested. This stands as a testament to the exceptional craftsmanship and tuning expertise of EXPERT Murata motor factory.


Additionally, Murata-San equipped the vehicle with an Auto Gallery Yokohama SS690 Cross Mission gearbox coupled with a ATS hybrid triple clutch, renowned for its excellent street usability while also capable of handling increased power demands when necessary.


The A’PEXi N1 Damper PRO coilovers offer precisely tuned damping settings, meticulously configured through extensive trackside research. Providing the R33 with unparalleled balance and control, these coil overs coupled with the Ikeya adjustable arms enable the hefty GT-R to manoeuvre with the agility of a much lighter vehicle. However, given their high spring rates, it's advisable to consider alternative coil overs if you frequently encounter bumpy roads, as the current setup is notably firm.


Despite the extensive emphasis on performance, one might assume that other facets of the car could have been neglected. However, such is not the scenario with this R33. The exterior has received meticulous attention, adorned with an array of carbon enhancements including Auto Select carbon canards and a front splitter complemented by aggressively offset Enkei RS05RR alloy wheels. Furthermore, carbon fibre doors have been fitted while still preserving the functionality of electric windows in full.


The chassis is in honest, rust-free condition and underwent inspection by Steve at SR Auto Bodies. We entrusted them with repairing some jack damage to the sills, ensuring the integrity of the chassis remains impeccable.


The Skyline GT-R brand has become highly coveted globally, arguably ranking as the most sought-after car in today's rapidly growing classic and performance car market. Whether you seek a meticulously modified specimen for personal enjoyment, inclusion in a collection, or as an investment, your search ends here.
