Built from 1989 to 1994, the Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 is still a hot potato of a car and tuning meeting. But one should by no means dismiss the exhibit of the coupe. What can be extracted from the 20-year-old Skyline today, showed the Japanese tuner Endless in 2013.
The heart of the R32 is the RB26DETT straight six cylinder 2.6 liter engine with twin turbochargers. Approximately 300 hp represents the aggregate in the serial model. After the procedure from Endless, the displacement increased to 2.7 liters, and the power increased to 1000 hp.
This elemental force, the gearbox (sequential) and the brake system were naturally adapted. In addition, the driver gave the motor a pinch of nitrous oxide (NOS) administer that should then lead to more than 1200 hp of output. The Skyline of Endless passed the quarter mile so smoothly in 9.0 seconds. How it feels, describes the builder of the new-old racer -- Yuuji Goto -- as follows: “Under hard acceleration, it feels as if the brain is pressed in the skull abruptly backwards.” Still stret-legal and fun to show the rear lights!
