hello all..

i was thinking last night watching the footy ( needed something to think about watching that cr*p) ,why Nissan didn't realease the R33 and R34
at a better bhp than 280.? Everyone knows the Skylines are "held back" to 280bhp for Japan but that restriction doesn't apply here....why the hell didn't Nissan remove the brass boost restrictor, fit a better exhaust, remap the ecu and sell their "supercar" at nearer 400bhp than 280bhp..?????

It wouldn't affect servicing costs or anything i can think off.....maybe they would have sold more than they did if £50k got you 400bhp rather than 280bhp....????

am i right or wrong...?

Simply - because they didnt want to have european versions of the cars that were better than the JDM ones. Can you imagine how annoyed the japanese public would be if you could have bought better, faster skylines outside of japan?!!
