everyone wants one (import info)

hey guys,

As alot of car enthusiast know importing a nissan skyline to america is a very long and semi difficult process. the skyline is one of the gods when it comes to cars. it's the car that every civic wants to be and every mustang wants to beat. I am importing a skyline in hopefully a month or two so I figured now would be a good time to start doing my research. I called all over pennsylvania and I have found some very helpful and informational information.

everyone in america wants a skyline i hope the website above helps you on getting your skyline over here so America can finally stop being behind all the other countries in the world that are infested with these amazingly beautiful works of art

I agree with what you said about the importing process of a nissan skyline. I tried to get one a year ago and they told me it would take atleast 6 months. So I decided to go with an envoy instead.

I wish I would have came across that website you provided when I was interested in buying a skyline and before I bought my envoy.

This is interesting.. Most things I buy used and import in are crap. I prefer to pay a slight bit more to buy from someone local that can show me the item and stand behind it.

Having said that, some of the local cars are really "used" and I'd love to know if someone is sourcing mint cars.. ;)

I bought a R32 RB20DE. I wanna know if the RB20DET and the RB20DE are the same thing besides the turbo? Do I have to upgrade any thing before throwing a Turbo on her?
