not that it really means much, but my Skyline GTR in gran turisimo 3 has 1003 Horsepower, and my JDM STi wagon only has 540 that is with purchasing every upgrade.
!Laugh!

pretty sure there are some sick upgrade paths if you have the money for a skyline...

The stock R34 Skylines are rated at 271 hp, but that is due to a regulation in Japan that no car manufacturer will produce a car that makes more than 271 hp. That regulation is loosely enforced if at all. It is not uncommon for Japanes cars to dyno 350 hp stock.

if i was to get one there is a company called Motorex, they import all years from '89 to '02 and GTS to The Vspec (2f2f was thiers), but i want more info on them. the only way i could get one is if i payed my rex off, still wanted one and then sold the rex, and used the cash on the loan for say a mid year. Also for thier handfulness here, theres one in ross somewhere, built like crazy and he gets his work done at Raceline on 747. i could not tell its exact location but i know a few kids who have been there to see it at the guys house.

thanks for lettin me know about that cosmo! didnt know they had a restriction.

Motorex has a pretty good selection, but their prices are insane. Of course, they do the required bumper modifications to make them legal for registering in the US, if that matters to you...

well on of mine friends looked into purchasing a R34 Skyline GTR Vspec2 from japan and ship it here to California. Then to Motorex to legalize it. So far it would take 2 months to get it from Japan and 7 months at Motorex to legalize it with all the paperwor etc... But also $28K for the Skyline and another $50K+ for Motorex. Which totals to $80K (+,-)
