The first skyline I have owned, it is cherished and maintained regardless of cost and diet lol

So the car has all stage 1 mods and started its life with me at: 278.2bhp
Then it made a healthy 301.2bhp
After a custom remap: 353.5bhp

The goal for the car 450bhp

The car has now undergone stage 2 mods in the hunt for more power:

before: 353.5bhp / 310ftlb
After: 430.2bhp / 380ftlb

After many new handling additions, a new exhaust, air filter and boost increase, a respray and wheel refurb along with cosmetic interioir and exterior changes the car is now producing more power:

Before: 430.2hp / 380ftlb
After: 446.3hp / 425ftlb

*these are all flywheel figures.
