When,after years of admiring them, I got my Skyline, I said "Oh it's plenty fast enough,I won't want to do anything else to it." Oh was I wrong.

Now I find myself searching for information on how to make it go a "bit" faster

I'm seeking injector specs,turbo experiences and boost controller prices.

It doesn't help that one of my mates says the only way I'll see his Cosworth is from behind, though i did reply with " that would only be at weekends" because that's the only time he ever drives it, and then only when it's dry !

So being a lowly blue collar type with 3 kids, a mortgage,beer to buy and a strange affinity for turning scrap airliners into flight simulators. I can't lash out on all those expensive goodies...

I have bought a decat pipe though,woohooo !

And every time I drive it and put my foot down, I love it, even though I don't have big injectors and a steel turbo and a FMIC.
Well, not yet.......

Get yourself a downpipe next, then Cat back exhaust, followed by an induction kit and a boost controller set to 0.80bar and your love it even more, although your mate with the cossie wont.

Ah ha, already have full stainless HKS silent power exhaust ,front pipe and induction kit.
Don't wanna sound elitist, but even tho he has a dyno readout for 380hp,his cossie still looks c**p parked next to my Skyline and when he first saw it, he was remarkably quiet. In fact his best line was," Skylines are too heavy,mines much lighter,it's the motorsport breedin u know ! " Yawn.
Oh how I laughed at the ring tingy t ting of his 4 cylinders

Ooh, now I'm getting bitchy arn't I ?

But seriously, I've heard of a few people who have Skylines who HAD cossies, but not the other way around

my hubbies car is a little ford lol, and his is quicker than the sky for the moment,
But even he like drishing cossies he also says he's not fussy lol


his car is a mk2 xr2 700 kg's with a zetec turbo pushing 250 bhp
but the good thing is he spends money on the fiesta and I can spend on the skyline :)
