That sounds like you are going to have a very nice ride. I'm not familiar with the motor in the Skyline, that you refer to. Can you describe it for us? How does it differ from the Nissan OHC inline-6 that we all know and love?

DESCRIPTION OF THE SKYLINE GT-R

The Skyline GT-R is Nissan's version of the Ferrari F-50. This thing is a rocket.

Twin turbo 2.6 liter twin cam 24 valve inline 6.
Rated at 280hp (VERY CONSERVATIVE)
stock quarter mile times of low 13's.
All wheel drive.
Super HICAS steering
plush, plush, plush!!!

There is talk of bringing it into the states, and I hope they do. It is Japan's most desired super car. They sell new for about the price of an NSX Acura. However, it will blow the doors off the Aucra.

Greddy has one called the Speed King. It did a 9 second quarter with suspension setup for top speed runs. They also turned down the boost and rev limiter (to 9500rpm) so that they wouldn't blow it up. Maximum engine speed on it is 14,500. Also the driver had never drag raced before. COOL!!!!!!! Here's a link...

Unfortunately, the last time I heard anything concrete, ( which is sketchy as all heck, ) they were implying that Nissan was gonna put A LITTLE FOUR-BANGER in the new Z. I desperately hope and pray that this is not the case. When we get more details this month, I hope and pray that we'll find that was just a joke. ( I don't think I could come up with a worse one. ) I'm really hoping they don't do that.
