1991 Skyline GT-R
these (R32) are the only legal ones to be imported to Canada without modification

You might've seen a GT-R (or lookalike) then.. those had the amber corner lamps and a different grille (no hood section)

Yep, but since they are in

My mechanic ( the chinese who modded my honda) have one R32 modded, and a 3000GT modded, both are hell fast, the turbo spool is incredible!. Nothing to do with rice, the cars are clean, simple and fast.

I liked my cressida, but there wasn't **** of aftermarket. The only way to get more power out of them was to do a 1jz-gte or 7m-gte swap.

But but but, there'* no real common turbo manifold you can just slap on the LN3/27/36/67 like you can with the 5M

Yeah, I know, the aftermarket sucks. We got headers for us, and the suspension game is just beginning to catch up with coilovers being developed.

The Skyline is one of my dream cars. An R34 to be exact.

They will kill most American cars on the street or track...

A 1JZ?

Those Soarers (turbo-wise) came stock with either the 1G-GTE (2.0L TT I6), or the 7M-GTE (3.0L turbo I6; same as MKIII Supra)... was this one swapped in Japan or swapped over here?
