a lot of peaple and garages say you need to pull a gtr engine to replace turbos yet i do them in place.

however if your doing the same job every day then yes you will know what to do to make it easier

Steer from rear where all over you tube in the 300's
They may have BORROWED a forklift off the NEC to aid removing and fitting of the engine

I had one which was running 397bhp but I sold it after just 2 weeks as its the only car which has truly scared me whilst driving (I was doing 50mph on the motorway in the rain and could feel the rear sliding back and forth).

It had been setup for use on track so was useless on the road really, wasn't worth me spending money on it to make it better for the road so I sold it and stuck with the 200sx I had at the time instead.

I had pirelli tyres on my rear originally and tiptoed everywhere as it just kept stepping out but I switched to toyo t1r's and the grip was amazing. Got a couple of vids of me at brands in it somewhere
