Congrats tho bro, most my mates have already gone through the modded skyline phase, albeit with R33s and R34s, so i know quite a bit about them. What r they driving now....E36 Beamers with fake m3 bodykits and wheels. And on a track, unless ur GTR is seriously modded, both in engine and suspension tune, u wont b hunting down ne 911 turbos or modern day ferraris. The upside is, aftermarket bolt on mods r readily available and very cheap.
For 30K, im hoping its an official Aus import and not a grey. If it is one of the 80 slow selling Nissan Aus GTR's, the performance specs r nowhere near what u may think. The specs u list on the R32 GTR r true for a Jap spec brand new car running on 100ron petrol. The Aus cars ran lower boost and reduced timing to cope with 91ron petrol, thus power was in the 180kw zone and the quickest acceleration tests had the GTR running high 5s to 100km/h and low 14s for the 1/4mile. The irony is, a grey import is actually slower, since the engines and ecu rnt adjusted to cope with our lower ron fuel.
