    I don't think you can find a cheap one! I've never even saw one for sale in my area.

    Heck, no. It's a 3.8L V6 from the Buick GN.

    plus theyre rare as hell

    if i had a bunch of cash, i would never buy a 350z ever, but id buy a skyline in a heartbeat

    Skylines are one of the most overrated cars ever. The ricers would be following you around everywhere if you had one of those cars, its ridiculous, they freakin worship them.

    I don't think they are anything special. Its expensive as hell, doesn't look nice, and sounds like complete ass. And they aren't even that fast stock. Skyline = riceburner crap IMO.

    First of its Japanese. Thats strike number one.

    Its a 6 cylinder, its not fast, it can't be made fast without F/I (expensive and not worth it), it doesn't look that nice, its expensive, and it gets worse fuel economy than my V8.

    Personally I would never even consider buying one.
    Didnt I read on here that 350zs were like S2000s as in they are basically 'already modified from the manufacturer,' meaning theres hardly any more hp to find without force induction?

    That would fucking suck for any car enthusiast.

    Yep, pretty much. There's only so much power you can get out of a 3.5L N/A V6. And Nissan already has 270+HP from the factory, so you're not going to get much more out of it. Basically it comes down to removing some airflow restrictions (I/E, ect.) with the basic bolt ons. Not huge gains to be found, at all.

    Um, I think you may be misinformed. I lived in Japan for a couple years and drove plenty of Skylines. The R34s were underrated at 276HP (Japanese manufacturers' "gentleman's agreement") and made more like 270awhp. They run bottom 13s-high 12s in stock trim...much like a LS1 F-body. How are they hitting 200mph for a "few grand"? My friend Inoyue had a worked maroon R33 that was awesome, but of all the cars over there, I'd still pick a Supra.

    Nobody cares exactly how much is costs. Its irrelevent. The point is that in order to get a Skyline to hit 200MPH its going to cost a ton of money - in other words, its totally impracticle and a waste of time. The car isn't built to hit 200MPH - every component from the transmission to the suspension to the tires would have to be upgraded.

    You could just buy a much faster, much better car, like a Z06, than can almost hit 200MPH from the factory. And it would still cost you less money.
