    My GTO got 2 kills today. 1) Skyline 2) 04 gto

    Well.. Today was an interesting day. My friend and I were hanging out with the AZ Power and Sound guys at the dyno tonight. My friend came up with the idea of getting drinks for us at the gas station. Of course.... he would be driving my car. lol

    Anyway, I get a call from him 10 minutes later. " DUDE! I just killed a Skyline!!", he said. He spoke to the driver of the 1995 Skyline. Fresh off the boat from Japan. Right hand drive with paper tags on it still.

    They went from a dead stop and the skyline got pulled pretty hard.

    They went again from a 25-30mph roll... and pulled hard again up till about 80 when the skyline finally started gaining on the lengths put on him. 80 was fast enough on the road they were on. lol This was N/A. no nitrous..bottle was empty.

    After the fun at the dyno and me filling my N20 bottle we headed home.
    At the intersection of Baseline/Rural a good lookin blue 04 with some aftermarket wheels hit the red light as we did.
    Light turns green and we both start out... I hear his tires chirp a little through the intersection. he gets about half a car on me... enough for me to see his 04 exhaust. Then i hit the gas hard.... bottle wasnt warm at all.... but it was warm enough to put several car lengths on him quick.

    Cool fella... I rolled my window down and gave a thumbs up.

    nice kills and dyno #'s. Lucky, I've never seen a skyline not even at a car show. One thing, for me, it's a practice that only I drive my car....

    what i heard stock the skyline isnt impressive at all i think the hp is somewhere in the 200's if im not mistaken?but once you began to supe it up then its a decent competitor like any car you put money into but i dont think.. it would be worth all the shipping cost?

    for a civilian.. pretty pricey.

    this guy came from okinawa... military guy. the most he'd pay to ship would be $10K

    Nah, chances are he didn't pay a dime. Military will ship one car for free when moving you from overseas to continental US. I went to Misawa about a year or so ago. You wouldn't believe how many Skylines I saw in the on-base parking lot outside the dorms.

    Stock im actually not sure, its got the RB26DETT motor, its only a 2.6 liter dohc inline six twin turbo(nothin to laugh at) but the way that motor can be built up, with AWD, is rediculous

    the RB26DETT motor has 320 stock horses...that comes with the newer GTR's such as the V-Spec Nurr version. You can also switch between awd and rwd with them :-D Its a shame you dont see any skylines in person.. we have a few older models in NJ prolly about 3-4 of 'em. they were at the huge meet we had a month back.
