it may not blow up right away, but its not as simple as just strappingon a turbo. and 24 lbs of boost isn't gonna net you that kind of power alone anyway.
Nick88gm Feb 23, 2012
I agree it is a great motor but i have to say the ls motors r probably the best.yes they r used in a wide array of thier vehicles for a reason and a lot of ppl put them in forsake and even rx-7s so it is a well known fact they r great motors.I have to agree with the guy that mentioned the powerband.that is huge in racing.if u have any kind of technical track that has slow tight corners, ur gonna w...
Patrick Schalk Feb 23, 2012
Yeah with forced induction. That wasn't anything new.
Cham Khiev Feb 23, 2012
But the ls is a v8, wat made these engines popular was the fact that u could get a alot out of a little
Phil Johnson Feb 23, 2012
You can put 24 lbs of boost into a stock 4.8L Chevy LS out of a pickup truck, make over 1200 HP and it won't blow up. Don't believe me? Go pick up a copy of Car Craft.
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
Another important thing about the 2jz's. Is that often they are tuned for peak numbers not usable power bands because they put on such large turbos that produce a lot of turbo lag.
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
The balance of the car. Plus it's not like an rb is even that hard to make powerful. You can get a block from an rb30 and I believe there is a for crankshaft from a diesel straight six with a longer stroke and makes it into a 3.2L a monster for
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
2jz is a good engine but greatest is definitely a stretch. One of the things that makes them able to handle so much power is the fact that the are iron blocks. The GTR already added weight with awd and iron block would only add to that and mess up
Parker Lamoreaux Feb 22, 2012
I agree with Aaron. Why is this even news? Skylines have been making this kind of power since the early 90's. Big deal.
rockstarTc Feb 22, 2012
I would have to go with the 2JZ that engine can take anything greatest engine ever!!! Really wish they brought that engine back...
Justin Routh Feb 22, 2012
Regardless theres a reason 2jz arent made anymore and ls are being sold like theres no tomorrow. Not saying they arent good, but ls is the best
Matt Piccolo Feb 22, 2012
K so they use the motor throughout their line up... A lot of companies have the same engine in multiple models... Big deal lmao
Justin Routh Feb 22, 2012
Yes i'm a ford guy when it comes to domestic but even i'm not afraid to say that the ls motors are some of the best on the planet
Justin Routh Feb 22, 2012
I agree with patrick. Theres a reason ls motors are used in everything from gm trucks to suvs to the camaro and vette. Theres a reason so many smaller companies use ls motors time and time again.
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
@Luke you can do the same with an LS, the only difference is those are real bullet proof motors and if ever brakes down the only tool you need is a hammer!
Luke Bailey Feb 22, 2012
I'd rather have a 2jz anyday over an ls....just replace the head studs n u can put insane boost on it....
Patrick Schalk Feb 22, 2012
Yeah Aaron that's why so many people use the 2jz in everything and not the LS series right? BTW my "time machine" is a 98 Z28 LS1 Camaro so I think I can say that. And so it begins.
William Downs Feb 22, 2012
RB26 is a great engine, no one can argue that but if u know ur Shit u know the only bullet proof straight six are the Chrysler in stock or slight modded form or the 2jz that engine laughs at 1000 hp
Johnny Francis Feb 22, 2012
Na that would be the supra :) 2jz is retarded awesome.
Domi Bsaibes Feb 22, 2012
The best tunable *street* car ever!
Aaron Weslow Feb 22, 2012
1000hp... Welcome to 1996. Comparing the 2JZ or RB26 to LS motors is cool if you have a time machine or like to bench race. In RW, modded motor vs modded motor, the 2JZ is the most bulletproof motor that can hit these numbers.
William Downs Feb 22, 2012
its better it dosent have anymore torque, other wise it would just light the tires up all the time
Brady Fereday Feb 22, 2012
It doesn't need to be high it's all wheel and I bet it lights all 4 wheels up
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
Hahaha, I'm sorry but the torque is embarrassing !
Oliver Hjortnæs Feb 29, 2012
I meant 145... Now it's 146!
quadrophine Feb 26, 2012
572 ci, 1000 to 1500 hp 1000 to 1300 lb ft, 0-60 in just over 2 seconds... faster than a bugatti veyron. by running such a large tire, your changing the gearing. so now the engine requires fewer rotations to cover the same distance as would a smaller tire. oh they use plain old methanol, and a supercharger
quadrophine Feb 26, 2012
a good example of what a low end torquey v8 can do is a monster truck, even with a thousand horsepower, my 2.0 would never be able to turn this huge wheels and heavy chassis, but a v8 can with a long stroke it has more than enough leverage to turn those wheels and propel the truck to 60 in less than 3 seconds, I'm pretty sure that's true, on ntro methane of course.
quadrophine Feb 26, 2012
I hear ya... when you feel yourself get pushed in the seat, that always feels strongest at peak torque in my car, that doesn't happen till most longer stroke higher displacement engines redline... makes for shitty stop and go traffic, but good for coming out of corners and spinning all four wheels into 3rd...
Shane Heid Feb 26, 2012
The old big block iron v8s from days of old. Anyways to each their own, low end torque is what lights my fire and powers my launches lol
Shane Heid Feb 26, 2012
I figured American sports cars had proven well and wide to the world what we can do with old fashioned push rod engines also when I mentioned Long stroke big bore, I meant relative to European competitors not
Shane Heid Feb 26, 2012
Hmm, I know they changed ratios for each track, and I got my information from popular mechanics and some web sources, I'm sure some info on both our sides is wrong regardless, I did think you were bashing big v8s,
quadrophine Feb 26, 2012
look it up. I checked several different sights for stock car NASCAR specs. and don't think I'm ragging on v8s... all I'm saying is that the smaller high output engines are equally impressive. and a v6 is no reason to write off a car especially when it can consistently and reliably deliver that kind of power... not that internals are stock, but the radon the tend to handle power better than b...
quadrophine Feb 26, 2012
I got all my info from the net... and most of what I got was 750 to 800 hp, they change gear ratios per track, but they are geared typically for top speeds... gobs of torque at low rpm are not speed makers great for passing on the highway in higher gears but not good for all out speed. also, you can manipulate torque at the wheels greatly by changing ratios, hp is also affected but minimall...
Shane Heid Feb 24, 2012
Also I have a thunderbird sc.
Shane Heid Feb 24, 2012
And can go from 0 to 60 on nearly 2.5 seconds soooo it would killlll a stang and most things in the quarter mile.
Shane Heid Feb 24, 2012
Hmm dunno where you got your facts from? But an interview done with the chief engineer at rousch racing engines by popular mechanics I read in 2010 the rousch engines in the stock cars were pushing almost a 1000 hp and only about 10% less torque.
JGL Scuderia Feb 24, 2012
omg.. thats one lot of commets
quadrophine Feb 24, 2012
a big bore long stroke v8 would be 454 455 and 500 ci big blocks made by increasing the bore and stroke of smaller engines.
quadrophine Feb 24, 2012
ford, 710 hp 490 lb ft peak hp 8k peak torque 6500. acceleration is always hardest at peak torque, that's a long broad powerband, in a shorter stroke na v8. and you get even more power out of 2.8 liter v8s in formula cars.
quadrophine Feb 24, 2012
I'm gonna have to look up stock car specs, the only reference I have to draw on is gt5
quadrophine Feb 24, 2012
but again, this is an example of hp... the 358 is a shorter stroke v8 with about 2 thirds as much torque as hp. you'll find the majority of NASCAR engines make about 150 to 200 less lb ft vs horsepower even at the fly, let alone the wheels. the gearing limits the torque as well to broaden the powerband I'd be willing to bet, a stock mustang ft would take a stock car in the quarter mile.
Shane Heid Feb 23, 2012
No turbo lag either cause it doesn't need a giant stupid turbo
Shane Heid Feb 23, 2012
It'll give yours a run for its money and it's large bore long stroke low end torque push rod engine.
Shane Heid Feb 23, 2012
Limit to the red line is the valve spring recoil rate. At about 9,000 rpm. Also bone stock my car could run 14s and hit 110 in third gear. It's not stock by far ad neither is yours. Don't make dumb a$$ assumptions about my car
Shane Heid Feb 23, 2012
358 ci displacement, carbureted limited to two valves per cylinder. Pushing 1000hp and 960 lb of torque. Long stroke large bore. Flat torque curve speeds of 200+ and purpose built for racing.
Shane Heid Feb 23, 2012
Quadrophine, your wrong purpose built race engines are built both ways. Illgicr you an example since your not getting it. NASCAR engine, hate the sport but let's break it down. Four speed trannes, manuals. Limited to
Mario Callirgos Feb 23, 2012
??? I don't get your logic but to each his own : ) glad you understand my logic though. I am not a crazy person!
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
it is in my book a muscle car, because it was built to dominate, and because of its uniquely agreasive aesthetic compared to other jdm vehicles of the era.
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
but it is... this car would dominate the quarter mile as it would Laguna seca we have evolved new methods of generating power whereas back in the day, the adage stood, theres no replacement for displacement. which in a big way was true. however, we now utilize technologies like forced induction direct injection variable valve timing high flow intakes and exhausts fuel atomizing injectors.
Devin Babyn Feb 23, 2012
I can't wait till Patrick reads this he's gonna be rattled
Mario Callirgos Feb 23, 2012
No it proves my point. This car was built to dominate at the track. It's a real sports car. Muscle cars are not the go fast in a strait line. This car is not a muscle car on that ground.
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
that same long stroke v8 with dohc or camless will still be limited regardless of valve duration and lift. you may be able to widen the curve a little bit, playing with overlap, but in the end it will be all tuckered out while the shorter stroke is just peaking
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
which is why at 9k I'm still making 450 to the wheels in 3rd at 120 mph and your trailing behind struggling to make enough power in 4 th to continue accelerating
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
a shorter stroke tends to net a wider torque curve, without the spike of a shorter torque curve the engine can continue to make power well beyond peak torque.
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
... well, I'm trapping just under 135 in the low 9s and my 10k pushrod was just a hypothetical to make the point that an engine with a long stroke is less capable in the top end. much more suited for street driving. there's a reason purpose built racecars have short stroke engines. its not just about what the engine can handle but where it performs at its peak.
Shane Heid Feb 23, 2012
@quadrophine, not mine. And valve train does matter, I didn't say pushrods engines limited power I said they limit red line. And since there isn't a metal that exists that can make a pushrod engine hit 10,000 rpms, my argument still stands
Mario Callirgos Feb 23, 2012
Ok that's fine the r33 nur was the first production car to blitz the Nurburing under the 8 min mark. That's the difference!
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
my ricer will eat any muscle car old or new in a straight line or in corners
Mario Callirgos Feb 23, 2012
I did say significant racing history! Winning a race against other muscle cars really proves nothing. It's not significant. Uh the Golf GTI won the BTCC in 1997 and 1999. Does that significant racing history?
Julio Leal Feb 23, 2012
Love that sexy thing
Vincent Butler Feb 23, 2012
Don't, I found this really interesting
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
same problem would occur regardless of what kind of valvetrain was employed... a better cam system simply allows you to rev higher, whether or not those high revs will be of any use comes down to horsepower
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
same amount of torque at a lower rpm
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
an 8 liter v10 with a hypothetical equal spec 8 l v8... the v8 could potentially deliver the same amount of torque at the same rpm because the stroke would have to be 20 percent longer which with the same gearing in the sane car will create 20 percent more leverage. but the distance you can drive from one single rotation is reduced by 20%
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
that's when gearing and vehicle inertia come into play. there are so many variables its insane to try and argue on a cell phone. suffice it to say, there are many ways to get from 0-200 mph some get there quicker than others... but some generate power in areas specific to there need or want.
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
the valve train really has nothing to do with it. you cab turn out 1000 hp out of a pushrod as well as any ohc application. if you had a pushrod with springrates high enough to recoil at 10,000 rpm it would still be producing less power if the stroke was longer vs shorter. the momentum of the piston becomes the enemy.
Shane Heid Feb 23, 2012
Making the red line low. And with forged internals and large pistons the weak link is the limit of the valve springs making the engines very reliable because the stress limit is far off on any one engine component
Shane Heid Feb 23, 2012
Well it has more to do with the limitations of push rod engines. Which is what most American v8s are. The valve spring return rate is easily exceeded when it has to also push down lifters and connecting rods
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
a longer stroke however means greater stress on components in the bottom end. this is because piston speed increases with engine speed and a longer rod moves faster at the same rpm then a shorter rod which is why you can take a 2.0 4 cylinder to 10k or a 2.8 l v8 to high teens.
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
the only reason most v8s rev and make power so low is the length of the stroke. big power because in one combustion cycle the rod length creates more leverage at the crank. leverage is the fundamental concept behind ft lbs
quadrophine Feb 23, 2012
the hp is dependent on the torque, but on high hp short stroke turbocharged engines torque curves broaden to continue to spin the wheels at high revs. you can't make that much hp without a signifigant powerband one that carries enough torque long enough to generate that much hp
Devin Babyn Feb 23, 2012
I've just seen and heard it multiple times and they've always said that Ford was the ones that said it
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
What car show? What videos? Who made them where did they get the information from because motortrend says they got it from ford. I can't really understand how IRS could add $5000 to the price tag. Especially since the next generation is getting it
Mario Callirgos Feb 22, 2012
Ford fan you know the boss 302 racing history was the trans am series where it won in 1970 against OTHER MUSCLE CARS. Nice try tho. Like the effort. The Z28 camaro has race history it won in trans am in 1969 lol
Shane Heid Feb 22, 2012
You've just saved tons of time by not having to downshift again. Viper Acr is the fastest car around the ring, and that engine is all low end torque.
Shane Heid Feb 22, 2012
@quadrophine, you have no idea what your talking about, torque is everything in a race, if the redline is say 7000 you will fall below 6k rpm a lot, every turn an with high low end torque
Thomas Mackey Feb 22, 2012
It doesn't. That's my point. This engine makes all of its torque well above 5500. A V8 makes all of its power below 5k. But smaller displacement engines and just smaller engines make power higher. Redline is just when your engine will blow after constant abuse. After that 7800 number your rate of acceleration drops. No torque = no power. Torque is power. It directly relates to horsepower.
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
originally designed as an IRS car
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
I don't understand how it could cost an additional $5000 especially if they were already using it in the ford falcon. I don't see how it could even come close to that much. It's not like would've been more expensive to develop because it was
quadrophine Feb 22, 2012
a good live axle can still own the track. and massacres offroad.
Devin Babyn Feb 22, 2012
Dan I've seen it on multiple test videos from the early years of this gen. I've also read it online multiple times and that also said it on a car show on tv
quadrophine Feb 22, 2012
how often does a car fall below 6 k on the track... torque is almost completely out of the equation once the motor runs past the torque curve, in this case from 5.5 k up, the torque numbers have no bearing on performance. once the motor is wound up its ponies that carry it to redline.
Thomas Mackey Feb 22, 2012
Torque is half the equation. Thru a crap drivetrain yes torque tears shit up but a car with 600 ftlbs will post a faster lap time than a car with 400 ftlbs given they have same bhp numbers. (660 x X)/5252= 982. Solve for X and you get about 7814.34 rpm. So all this cars torque is made up top. Purpose built cars like this love the top end. So torque is key. The more the better! Just need to put it ...
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
Yeah its better straight line traction but wait till you get to a bumpy curvy road.
quadrophine Feb 22, 2012
plus tend to be stronger and have fewer parts so fewer problems
quadrophine Feb 22, 2012
a live axle with detroits or LSD perform better off the line because it absorbs the gs better on instant acceleration.
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
Yeah devin $5000 for IRS is crazy base civics came with IRS. You're right I was wrong it wasn't $200 it was $98. They had already developed the system and were going to use the IRS from the ford falcon. Where did u get $5000 from I got mine from
quadrophine Feb 22, 2012
chevelle... but has to be 66 to 68. although I'd rock a miura over a chevelle. this car is really only good in a straight line. the LSD is so sensitive, you can't give any throttle in a corner without binding.
Devin Babyn Feb 22, 2012
Since the only Lamborghini I've ever been interested in is the sesto elemento. I'd definitely take a Chevelle SS. Doesn't even have to be in great condition
Joel Hope Feb 22, 2012
I'd rather have a Chevelle ss than a Lamborghini if I was completely honest. My opinion not yours so lets not start a war on why a Lamborghini is better.
Devin Babyn Feb 22, 2012
Yeah I heard their gonna almost completely leave the 60's muscle look behind. I love this gen but with the new designs they've been coming out with, I think it should be amazing
gabe sonnier Feb 22, 2012
okay, the new boss 302 luguna seca cant beat the camaro zl1. that i guess, would be comsidered a better muscle car. also muscle cars died cuz they wasnt producing the power and speed people wanted. thats when ferrari and Lamborghini came in,
Devin Babyn Feb 22, 2012
Oh yes and it will be lighter and most likely more POWER!!!! Lol I can't wait for that beast hopefully they don't mess up the body
Devin Babyn Feb 22, 2012
It wasn't $200 more, thats not even close. It would of been an extra $5000 per car it was a good choice. If they would of used IRS it would of absolutely blown anything chev and dodge but it would of priced itself out of the market
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
If they kept live rear axles for drag racers then why didn't they just keep their ohv engines ? I don't know how ford works, but they trip me out sometimes. Smh!
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
With live rear axles anyways
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
It ended up saving the something like $200 I kid you not one of the dumbest decisions I've seen. They kept that way for drag racers probably because when the mustang cobra came out with IRS all the drag racers ended breaking them and replacing them
Chris Bridgers Feb 22, 2012
If it aint broke, dont mess with it
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
Is it to save money?
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
What weighed 2,000 pounds and yea the cobra is still considered a muscle car tho. IRS doesn't change any thing the chally and maro has it and I still consider it muscle! I don't why ford is using solid rear axles again?
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
Also the cobra would definitely not fit the criteria of muscle car. It was using independent rear suspension even before Ferrari was. It weigh3ed like 2000lbs that was a super car back then.
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
Know that they could do more than go straight
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
I don't consider the boss 302 a muscle car... It's a pony car it's much more than an engine for its time it was a great track performer. In the 60s and 70s the auto manufacturers actually tried differentiate pony cars from muscle cars to let people
Vincent Butler Feb 22, 2012
GN GSX is a muscle car with a v6, at 87' it's a second faster then your v8 vette. I consider the r34 a sports car.
Mario Callirgos Feb 22, 2012
This is definately not a muscle car. But honestly why insult this epic sports car with that moniker. Most muscle cars cannot corner, are in a lower price bracket, and have no significant racing history minus the cobra. Pretty much the opposite!
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
Year to keep it. You may be able to keep up to five years but then you have to pay an additional fee each of the last 2 years
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
And can't technically buy an R34 for track use only in order for it to be legal it would have to have been a race car from creation it could only temporarily be allowed to stay as a track car you can keep it here for 3 years needing permission each
Joel Hope Feb 22, 2012
I posted one min after you so I was typing when you posted. Sorry :D
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
.... That's what I just said
Joel Hope Feb 22, 2012
Can import skylines for track use only.
Joel Hope Feb 22, 2012
You can't import a skyline because they were never crash tested for us so you need a fleet of them to be tested. Plus EPA stuff. When any car turns 25 yrs of age you can import because then they don't have to meet standard or the lhd thing. But you
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
You can also import it here relatively easily once it is 25 years old. In Canada it only has to be 15 years old lucky bastards.
rockstarTc Feb 22, 2012
So it might cost alot of money and be a bitch and a half to do but you can get this car legally in the US and if i had that kind of money i would totally do it
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
Here are gray market cars that were allowed to stay here because the owners were mislead by a import company that provided forged documents. I've heard that you can get the R33 here but I'm not positive.
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
Import a regular r34 gtr you would have to pass emissions and provide several extras to be crash tested in order for it to pass safety tests if it even would plus you would have to convert it to LHD (maybe even the crash test ones)almost all the r34s
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
Oh and the only R34 you can legally import is Nur. Spec V I believe. And that's only because it was limited production and it has historical significance and even then your only allowed to drive it a limited distance every year. In order to legally
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
Back in the day a muscle car would be a big car with a big V8 only concerned about one thing going fast in a straight line like a GTO or a charger and cars like camaros and mustangs which were smaller and relatively more agile were called pony cars.
rockstarTc Feb 22, 2012
This car is AWD, muscle cars are definitely rwd. I love this car soooo much and im almost positive you can send this to the US you just need to add more safety restraints and it needs to pass emissions. I think thats the only things keeping it out of the states.
Domi Bsaibes Feb 22, 2012
For me a muscle car is a car that u feel cocky while sitting in it, enclosed interior, huge amount of ponies under the peddal throttle making a heavenly sound, rwd drivetrain for sure
quadrophine Feb 22, 2012
from a roll torque is acceleration... from a launch torque just tears shit apart. besides, ill take a high revving short stroke turbo over a long rod torque machine that would blow up over 6500 rpm
Vincent Butler Feb 22, 2012
Is gnx a muscle car FordFan? It's 6cylinder
Thomas Mackey Feb 22, 2012
Torque is acceleration. So torque is very important in a race car. I'd say this isn't muscle BUT for an import it is very close. A classic for sure. Would be proud to own one.
quadrophine Feb 22, 2012
muscle car really refers to an era not a particular drivetrain but a v8 and rwd would be standard. although many refer to the old stangs with 286s as musclecars or 289s whichever it was. that's an inline 6. this is a musclecar to me because of the way it looks. not textbook, but relative to the other sportscars coming out at the time
Vincent Butler Feb 22, 2012
Definition of a muscle car. Tell me!!
Andy Lopez Feb 22, 2012
The only skylines that can be legalized for use in the US is the R33 model because a company that was called MotoRex had done the necessary modifications and had provided the crash data needed to make them complaint in the US.
Andy Lopez Feb 22, 2012
In my opinion this is one of the greatest cars that Nissan ever built. And gabe no you can't register these cars in the US even if you fixed the emission issue. Theres other obstacles in the way.
Vincent Butler Feb 22, 2012
Inline 6. Less of a muscle car. What do that mean?
gabe sonnier Feb 22, 2012
nice, yes u can registor them, all u have to do is limit the emissions
Justin Routh Feb 22, 2012
Damn thats nasty! I like
Phillip Greene Feb 22, 2012
This car is sick we have one hear at work but it just sits cuz you cant register them such a waist
Michael Gallagher Feb 22, 2012
I know what you mean Cody. It's in a whole class of its own. Mustang doesn't even touch it
Cody Jacques Feb 22, 2012
I love how the speedometer was almost climbing faster than the revs. My favorite part about this "atleast in america" is everyone thinks its like the equilvent of a mustang or something. it doesnt scream "super car fast"
Patrick Schalk Feb 22, 2012
What a nice car. I like this a lot. Looks really good.
Justin McLeod Feb 22, 2012
I want those Volks on my TL type S
quadrophine Feb 22, 2012
not to mention another valid reason to hate on the gtr
quadrophine Feb 22, 2012
in high power high rev cars, torque needs to be controlled. besides torque is good for nothing in race cars. its the hp that carries you through the last two thirds of your tach. besides I'm talking looks. this thing looks fierce.
Johnny Bonanni Feb 22, 2012
Haha agreed alex. Got so pumped when i saw this today :)
Nick Sti Feb 22, 2012
Agreed with Alex! Love imports <3
Alex Sharp Feb 22, 2012
My favorite car of all time. Thankyou CarBuzz for this article. <3
Pablo Herasme Feb 22, 2012
Owning a stock one would be a bless.
William Downs Feb 22, 2012
the difference between torque and HP dosent designate if a car is a muscle car or not, and he said in his book, u rain on everyone's parade in every article I see u post in
Mario Callirgos Feb 22, 2012
You can legalize this in America for sure. I see an r33 drive by my work every week. It just take plenty of money to import them and make them legal
Byakka Hirakawa Feb 22, 2012
Its a rb26 Thats an inline 6
Extremis Colson Feb 22, 2012
and guess what this will never be legal here in America, lolz!
quadrophine Feb 22, 2012
its a muscle car in my book... the first of the throwbacks.
Joel Hope Feb 22, 2012
Why te37? Because race car.
Tanner Middleton Feb 22, 2012

Greddy is a combo of get ready. Like the start of a race. Greddy set go
rockstarTc Feb 22, 2012
@victor say G as in ga, then add ready. That is crazy 1000cc injectors that thing is sucking up that much gas, but I guess it needs it for that mucg power
Luke Bailey Feb 22, 2012
8 injectors? can't be on a straight 6 unless its got 2 helper injectors in the intake....
Domi Bsaibes Feb 22, 2012
Garret gt35 twins?? No wonder the car pushes that much hp!!
Nick Sti Feb 22, 2012
Think of the word great and ready combined

BNR34 is da best. I don't like Nissan tho......I am a HONDA GIRLLLLLL★
Trent Fiala Mar 02, 2012
@Imroz Just saying but all transmissions use a clutch, some different types of clutches but they all have a clutch
Thomas Pelletier Feb 25, 2012
Acceleration very fast
Imroz Ali Feb 24, 2012
what is a seq tranny? can you go more on about it, does it use clutch?
Trent Fiala Feb 23, 2012
That thing is sick! I love that car, I'd say my favorite import car! TT inline 6 hell yeah That thing would be fast as hell!
Devin Babyn Feb 23, 2012
That sounds horrendous
No Pistons Feb 22, 2012
It's a seq tranny, just has to push forward or back. Taller shifter, less distance your hand has to travel therefore faster gear changes (along with trans of course)
Phillip Coy Feb 22, 2012
I always wondered if it would feel weird to shift with your left hand instead of the right.
Patrick Schalk Feb 22, 2012
Haha Matt why you gotta lie?
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
The 2jz hasn't been in production for a while now.
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
There's LS1's on summitracing.com for 4,500 dollar . Your dads friend is a dumb@$$ my friend!
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
@ Vic the mark II ended production in 2004 and it didn't have the 2jz-gte it had the NA version the 2jz-ge
Joel Hope Feb 22, 2012
@Matt the 2jz was not in one car. Get your facts in order before saying stuff.
Vic Orutsahakij Feb 22, 2012
@Tony the 2JZ GTE is still in production. It's in Toyota mark II and it in one of the Toyota van call Vellfire.
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
How old was the engine.Why would he crush the car just because the engine blew up. Ls are so cheap he could just put a new one in I've seen full t56 LS1swaps with engine management for under 4k.either he had forced induction or it was an old engine.
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
"O for you muscle car guys that's a 2.6 liter inline 6 pushing that much hp" see that's just unnecessary, I think it's cause this rare for you guys but us muscle car guys it's very common for a corvette pushing 1000+hp or any LS motor for that matter
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
@Matt i don't feel like getting into it with a closed minded 12 year old. Anyways not taking anything away from this motor but you guys see one that has over 900hp and start flipping out over it saying stuff like.
Domi Bsaibes Feb 22, 2012
SP engineering did a great job, it looks so smooth and simple for a 1000 hp car!
Luke Bailey Feb 22, 2012
no matter what the motor, i6, v8, v10, etc...the more u try and pump out the less the lifespan....1000hp isn't gonna be a daily driver regardless....and I don't think a ls would rip these i6 apart....just check out the single Turbo 2jz supra Texas mile runs....then run with the v8s n v10s all day....
Matt Piccolo Feb 22, 2012
@ Mikey, ls engines don't last that long... My dads friend (had) a 98 camaro and he had a swap in it, lasted up till 80k then blew... He said it would have cost more to fix it than the car was worth, so he sent it to the CRUSHER!!! Lmao, he, me and my dad went and watched it... That was the most beautiful sight ever!!!... After it was crushed! :D
Matt Piccolo Feb 22, 2012
I've only ever seen 1 or 2 ls engines in supras, the one I can remember was the car was in a wreck and the engine was destroyed, so the owner put in an ls engine, big deal... And the ls engine is only the most popular bec chevy puts it in all their vehicles, the 2jz was in one, so of course it won't out sell the ls is older too...
Justin Tucker Feb 22, 2012
Why can't people just enjoy this? Who cares what's better or worse. It is putting down grey numbers and being the owner of a rb26 240sx, 774hp, I can say this engine can handle hp quite well,but does need thing replaced now and then
Vincent Butler Feb 22, 2012
Mickey they stopped making them, used 2jzgte cost over 4.5+K. For used that's expensive as hell ls motor cost that brand new
Michael Gallagher Feb 22, 2012
Awsome and superb car. That is a rare and unique car that is the streets master. Love everything about it
Morgan Dame Feb 22, 2012
yeah true. come to think of it the venom gt does 0-60 in 2.5 or something
Justin Routh Feb 22, 2012
The time it takes from 100-200kph is absolutely insane. But at idle i think it sounds like a lawn mower lol
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
*the most sold first *engines
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
Japs makes some of the best handling cars out there.
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
,easy to fix, and I'm pretty sure they're alot cheaper to build up! On that note let's end this right now before we a 300 comment war over who makes Better what, cause we didn't create them. So let's agree that America makes the best engine and the..
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
Ya I'm Tony on this one. Last time I checked the LS motors are the most soled performance motors in the world! If 2jz engines are so great then why do I always see LS1 swaps, LS2 swaps, and LS7 swaps? Cause they're cheap, last forever, use less parts
Patrick Schalk Feb 22, 2012
I'm more of a supercharger kind of guy but that BOV sounds pretty nasty.
William Downs Feb 22, 2012
yea like tony said in the real world it dosent matter if ur 4wd or rwd or even front if u know what ur doing u can lauch just as well as any others, besides if u aren't really on it with 4wd it will bog down like crazy, on a side note that car is gorgeous
Morgan Dame Feb 22, 2012
rwd ls engine Vs. this? i think this would win because it puts the power down better
Justin Tucker Feb 22, 2012
That's the best GTR iv ever heard
Vincent Butler Feb 22, 2012
I honesty can't believe carbuzz Posted this Monster. I'm tired of all that none sense super/sports cars on here. Same shit Lamborghini or Ferrari. A new Mans Car!!! I just love The body. How much would a shell cost??!?
Zaire Wilkins Feb 22, 2012
this engine and NUR engine are both the best I6 engines ever in forza 3 and 4 u can get up to 1002hp and hit 262
Brady Fereday Feb 22, 2012
And yes I can see that's a KPH gauge
Brady Fereday Feb 22, 2012
It doesnt need much torque it's all wheel and it looked like it picked up pretty damn fast at 70
Brady Fereday Feb 22, 2012
It will last forever stock internals will go up to 1000 without any further mods this motor and the 2JZ are the best motors period and this motor is only pushing 987 so it's not at it's full power
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
And 1000hp is a joke compared to what the LS line up can pump out!
Mikey Jimenez Feb 22, 2012
@Brady * won't last very long buddy! And where's (where's the beef) the torque?
Brady Fereday Feb 22, 2012
Oh and for you muscle car boys that's a 2.6 litter straight 6 pushing those numbers just saying
Brady Fereday Feb 22, 2012
<3 RB26DETT <3 and who said Nissan can't build a good 6 this blocks are bullet proof I wish the carried on the straight 6s though oh well the GTR legacy lives on and strong :D
Leo Castillo Feb 28, 2012
Nissan should remake a limited run of these cars they would sell so fast
Saud Al Masoud Feb 28, 2012
This is what a call it super car 3>
James Buster Feb 24, 2012
The ones In Japan cost about 15,000-30,000 dollars
James Buster Feb 24, 2012
Nissan gtr are one of the hardest cars to get in the USA. There are very few that were originally imported and they can get up to 60,000 dollars. You will most likely have to import the car from Japan and the shipping is a little over 1,000. Plus u have to make it USA street legal
Mohammed Alkowni Feb 24, 2012
hate when there is no price
Nour Ahmad Feb 23, 2012
This car is sexy , why doesn't Nissan dealer sell this car like they sell gtr
Dan Rather Feb 22, 2012
@ Anthony it has a single clutch automated manual transmission you're right it's not an automatic but not because it has paddle shifters tons of autos have paddle shifters
rockstarTc Feb 22, 2012
so pretty, my new wallpaper!
Cody Jacques Feb 22, 2012
I disagree Razor too but dont tell people to shut up. It's silly to get worked up over a opinion even if it is a stubborn one...
Cody Jacques Feb 22, 2012
the rims are too flashy and dont suit the car. id go more incognito is I owned this.
Stephen Krane Feb 22, 2012
Tony get a life, you basically live on carbuzz
Alex Sharp Feb 22, 2012
Tony, you don't have to respond to everyone's comments. Also telling him to "shut the hell up" is going a little overboard. Its his opinion, everyone has one, so learn to deal with it. Btw, awesome skyline. Would love to own it.
Anthony Cordova Feb 22, 2012
@ Razor. Lambs are not automatics. They have paddle shifters. Get your facts straight.
Razor Curtiss Feb 22, 2012
This is honestly my fav skyline it's so much better looking than any other one and most come with the manual which if ur gonna have a fast car it's gotta be manual otherwise it's gay like an automatic lambo
Stephen Krane Feb 22, 2012
It's not manual it's a sequential gearbox
Jt Sheehan Feb 22, 2012
Still the best looking gtr! You would defiantly have a different feeling driving this , pulling up to a r35! The rarity stateside just makes it better!
Buddy Robinson Feb 22, 2012
Couldn't agree with you more, no matter how awesome the newer gtr's become (an the new is wicked), I still want this gen.
Carlos Eduardo Gaviria Feb 22, 2012
Still one of the most desired and bad ass cars ever produced IMO
Leo Castillo Feb 28, 2012
@bader hell no this is and alway will be the best Nissan car ever
Cody Andree Feb 22, 2012
Also he probably doesn't use English as his primary language. So he did quite well.
Cody Andree Feb 22, 2012
Tonys gay. How's it feel Tony? Come back when u hit high school and grow up a bit
Isaac Rezkalla Feb 22, 2012
This pic looks good and @tony if you come on this app to make fun of other people then you can leave
Matt Piccolo Feb 22, 2012
I agree, I'd take the skyline too
Alec Gonos Feb 22, 2012
@Tony. Aren't you only 14?
Aislin Cooper Feb 22, 2012
Yeah this is better than a McLaren. I have to agree with Clarkson when he says it's soulless. Not that I've driven one. But I can see what hes saying.
Domi Bsaibes Feb 22, 2012
I honestly prefer the skyline over the mclaren
Etienne Surrette Feb 22, 2012
@Tony Hey! I take offense to that!
Reid Huff Feb 22, 2012
Key to open the trunk
Donte Perino Feb 22, 2012
What's that little circle above GTR?
Louis Sunny Feb 22, 2012
Other ones a fog light
Zaire Wilkins Feb 22, 2012
this looks like its four door brother the max
