Born worshiping the ground Chevrolet rolled on back in the 50's and 60's they became more and more of a disappointment as time went on. I converted to Datsun and Toyota. While we were saying it took cubic inches to beat cubic inches the other side of the world was using technology to beat cubic inches. Nissan with the Skyline and Toyota with the Supra.The tuners were getting 500-1,000 reliable street hp out of 3 litre 6 cly engines which would operate on pump gas and drive like grandma's car in stop and go traffic. Put your foot in it and you feel like your body is going to be stuffed into the back seat. YOU CAN BARELY MOVE IF A SUPRA IS RUNNING 20 + PSI OF BOOST! We have never seen the older Nissan Skyline GTR's which are common in other parts of the world. It is common place to see them on the street with 6-800 street legal hp! There are a few running around in the states. Most are right hand drive. With a Greddy turbo kit sent to a tuner who also had a few tricks up his sleeves on the brakes and suspension, $9,700 added to my 80K GTR, delivered me back a street legal car with 700 hp to the wheels! Test results he supplied with the car which had the following: 0-60 MPH 2.8 seconds, 1 - 100 mph 6.8, 10.9 1/4 mile, 1.09 g's skid pad, 70 - 0 145 feet, slalom 76.2 mph top end measured with radar gun + GPS in 3 out of 3 runs 224 mph. Speedometer error @ 224 mph -3 mph. Test conditions:Dry + sunny. Temp 87f. Wind 2-4 mph((The car was running against a 2-4 mph head wind in the top end run on 4 attempts.) Until you drive it, there is no way you can describe how the car feels. It's hard to believe there is 500+ pounds more car than the ZR1 My co worker paid a tuner 5K up his ZR1's hp. For 5K got 100hp, the ZR1 still lost. The stock bottom end on the ZR1 could not handle the extra boost even though technology was there to deal with the deatonation threat. 4,660 miles later + BOOM! The Nissan you can rag on all day. The bottom end is stock!
