well i can understand him a bit. Iraq is surely not the best county for a supercar. poor road conditions, extreme temps and dusty, fuel quality? dunno but maybe they don’t have 100 octane.

of course, no reason to the blame the car. if u own a gtr in such a country you must be willing to ship the trans to usa or uk.

german car? forget it bro. here in switzerland are 90% german cars. what u what to compare here, m3 with VW up? R8 with opel manta? senseless

100‘000 km and the fun starts with german cars.
Yup , but i am talking about my experiences and i am not an expert or in a position to compare any brands . Everything you mentioned about iraq is completely accurate. Fuel is disgusting lower than 95 octane but i am using different additives like marvel mystery oil etc for better quality. Also shipping those parts from Iraq to Europe or usa costs a fortune . 22$ per KG and its the last thing you wanna do to ship a trans over 200kgs to for such repair.

First off, sorry you’ve had such a horrible experience with your GT-R. Although it is possible for your trans to be a lemon (certainly an anomaly), it’s more likely previous owner abused it and then passed these issues onto you. Did you buy it directly from the previous owner or from a car dealer? In any case, I understand your desire to move on, but you’ll probably take a hit on value or be passing this off to someone else in the same manner you got it (not a good move). Sending it to Shep trans in the US for examination and repair would be the best thing to do - spend the money to have it done right and be able to finally enjoy the car. Just my opinion.

Okay, so a clutch relearn is maybe all you need? That`s not much of a problem either if it solves your issues.
I think you`re giving in a bit too early.
Purchase the EcuTek bluetooth interface and give it a go it`s roughly about $300.

Are you sure? Because last time I checked tcm and ecu model it costs around 1200$with licenses and + if you need tuning from a tuner

You are correct, $1200 for a tune+licences but if you only want to do a clutch relearn download the app and purchase a Bluetooth interface.
If you`re not satisfied with the result after a relearn you can always sell the interface again and get your money back.

It`s just to keep your fingers crossed now that everything works out well.

A couple of points if you`re gonna keep the car (which I recommend) are, to get that bluetooth interface and do a periodical relearn.

Secondly, why did you use RTV on the oil pan instead of a new gasket? Even though you have two filters in the trans you do not want silicone sealant in there.

I have installed a gasket previously but it leaked because the edges of oil pan is not in good shape so we needed silicone sealant to prevent it from leaking . I dont know but i almost forgot about what happened and enjoyed driving it again 😂 Most probably if i keep it , i will buy ecutek and get it tuned by litchfield stage 1 610 hp with some cool back fires after installing downpipes

Sorry to hear this. It’s a special car and rightfully has a cult like following.

Maybe someday you’ll be back, never say never.

Enjoy the YouTube videos for now - I’ve got quite a few cruising with other cars as well.

Best of luck with your next platform
