I think I would end up bored with the n/a and in the long run and would probably buy a turbo again,
Sometimes it's better the devil you know and you know what it needs to get it going again,
If it were me I would fix the turbo ;)

there are better cars you can swap your car for than a n/a skyline mate. skyline in my eyes = turbo beast not........slow n/a
Exactly - Skylines aren't the lightest of cars, so a 2.5 na car will be pretty boring. You'd have way more fun in an S13 200sx, or even a BMW E30 325i!!

if u have the part for the jobs that ned doing your most of the way there....why not have a go at doing it yourself? once done youll have learned somthing and get that satisfied, i did that feeling.

im permenantly skint, my jobs on the line also, we have the meeting of doom part 2 tomorrow. so i know where your coming from regards the money situation.

i dont think swapping a bust car for a working car would be a good move... youll just end up getting dicked...

have a 525 to play about in when the wife's not around of course lol i had a n/a skyline and i did'nt mind it was a bit on the slow side but it was economical as i used it everyday to get to and from work so thats why i am after another 1 basically i love the look of em and if it means driving a slow 1 im ok with that

i think the na ones are good fun,with less power and not having to worry about constant loss of traction you can hoon it around a lot more than you would expect
the non tub 33 gtst is round the same power and weight as an e36 bmw 325i anyway,they feel quite similar to me

ok ok i wasnt gonna bite but too many peeps are miligning my old NA lump. these engines are far from lagardly old pig iron. my rb25de is a screamer. with a little bit of work, some thought and aplication the cars are far from boring.

my car is also a 4wd (heavy) with saloon body (heavier) so im lossing 60 kgs ish to the coupe rwd

shes no slouch.

in fact there's gonna be some comparisons between that and the rb25det in the stagea soon .

so stick that in ya turbos. lol :booty::booty:

(for those that don't know i'm the looney NA geek, i only bought a rb25det cos it came with a free estate car attached....NA all the wahhheyyheeyy to 6000 rpm)
