I like the ride selection!

What kinda upgrades have you done to the GTR? It's retarded how easy it is to make power with the RB26. Right off the container, mine dyno'ed 340whp when it just had basic upgrades but now it should be over 200 more ponies.

Clean but not feeling your steering wheel though sorry

The GTRs are way underrated cause of the whole 280hp law back then. Bone stock it should dino 300ish wheel, with full turbo back + intake easy to get another 30+ whp.
This is not ricer math, the exhaust and intake system on these cars are HEAVILY restricted to limit the power.

As far as what you can / should do to it. It's your call, but personally I would start it off with a good coilover system, some aggressive wheels & then freeing up the engine power.

I wouldn't touch the body of the car as I am a huge fan of the lines. Just my 2 cents.

The RB26 is a fantastic engine, very easy to make power.. I've got some basic GT-R mods done like the boost controller, turbo timer and so on... I've already put on coilovers and put in a performance clutch, so as of right now I really like how the car sounds and drives. As for personalization.. the only change I would make would be to swap the current rear bumper with a Veilside E-III model instead. But I'm very happy with the machine as is so not really rushing into anything. I've got a few dings I would like to remove before I get it painted, that is currently at the top of the list.

The styling of the GTR should barely be touched. Nissan got it very close to perfect. When I say mod the GTR, I mean mods that don't include styling. Standing out is lame IMO. Getting your jollies off of being noticed is lame IMO. Getting your jollies off of ripping it up on a track = the sex.

Sleepers FTMFW.

Not sure what I'm going to do next, perhaps some new turbos, new fuel injector system but other than that I really like how it is right now. How come you don't have your GTR now, did you sell it or something?






First day I saw my car;


Just on the driveway;

Yes, I sold it to fund a condo down payment and then bought my M3. I was looking for something I could drive year round. I promise to get back to a GTR someday as it makes an amazing project car. Perhaps in a couple years when the M3 is payed off and finished modding.

I assume you frequent GTRCanada.com?
