1988 Nissan Pintara Review
88' Pintara — with the stock CA20E its a mad slug (78RWHP) but i have plans fer an RB20DET pushing 250plus. its an R31 series so skyline bits are a neat swap,if not, easy enough. Ive replaced the front and rear main oil seals on the CA since owning it, the odometre stopped at 175odd thousand so i swapped the old dash fer a new tacho dash.... the odometre had stopped on it at 150odd thousand, lol cant wait fer rego yime next year
Pros: takes R31 skyline bits
Cons: australian released with CA20E and a bunch of crappy bosch bits
