OK..I raced a Skyline R33 GT-R VSpec rated @ 420HP 399TQ and runs the quarter mile @ 12.27 @ 106.82MPH.... we were dead even all the way up to 135MPH. I was pleased with that. Means I have a pretty bad-ass GTO. (I even over-reved in 3rd accidentally). He has HKS turbo set-up... here is a vid of his car>>> http://myweb.cableone.net/rrjlmj/skylinev_0001.wmv

Check it out...

Very nice... hopefully I'll be able to have a skyline experience of my own. A guy I know is getting an R33 GTR V-spec in the next few days and I am getting my GTO tomorrow. The Skyline is all stock so maybe we'll have a little highway action this weekend (or next... whenever he gets back from Central Florida).

You should be able to beat the stock Skyline pretty easily. Remember the car will run quicker after around 5000 plus miles on it. Congrats on your new GTO!!

Is it easier to buy them now or something. Seems like there are a few around. There used to be none because they were so hard to import and modify to meet the laws here. Also I thought they were AWD but it dyno'd rear wheels only. His ET and MPH makes it seem like it is AWD.

He probably disconnected the front driveshaft or got one of the viscous coupler block off things like AWD DSM guys use to dyno FWD (I don't know how AWD Skylines work). My "friend" is buying his from some place in Orlando (IIRC). He posted a picture with 3 R33's in a row and in the background Silvias and ALOT of right hand drive "normal" cars (alot of Honda and Toyota badged "Lexuses and Acuras"). The one he is looking at was imported and valdalized in transit (people stole alot of parts from it) but all the important bits are present and accounted for. Just cosmetic things.

Also I just thought I might have an even better chance against Elliot in his new "holy grail of rice"... he has to shift with his left hand haha.
