    YouTube - LS1 Turbo Skyline

    Just the bay and a few revs.

    A few more videos of it are on the related list.

    I saw this and was like, wow this is different. just thought I'd share

    It's cool to be different but why a skyline, why not a 240?

    This seems kind of sacrilegious. On the other hand though, the S2K motor seems to be popping up in a lot of different project cars these days. Is cross-platform motor swapping the "in thing" right now? :shrug:

    S2000 motor would not be on my list of motors to swap. Maybe into a civic yes, but anything else no. Torqueless motor FTL!

    I've seen it in BMWs, Celicas, an RX-7, lots of places. I'm seeing K swaps into other company's vehicles a lot lately too...

    I didn't think I'd ever hear jeffie drop a comment like that. Must be the redneck coming out in him.:D

    Torque isn't everthing unless your driving a heavy ass car or towing . The F20/22 and 6 speed out of the s2k is the perfect power plant for the older model RWD cars of the 80's, not to mention a few newer cars like the ones' Brutal dropped, where trying to keep the car light was the focus to compensate for lack of power and the F20 seems to move the S2000 along pretty fast. I mean sure , the F20 is no boosted VQ motor (jab;)) in the torque department, but thats why Honda didn't put it in a dump truck!

    I do agree with the fact a Chevy motor probally should have never touched that R34. Plus boost on that motor is super over kill for drifting don't you think?

    Ah right, I forgot about the Honda-swapped Mini Coopers. I think that one was in HondaTuning a while back. Might have been a B-series in that one though...

    I need that green yota pickup in the end of that vid.

    something is wrong with someone who puts that engine into a GTR, your eyes are like "damn, thats sweet!" then your ears kick in with "WTFITS?"

    Yeah the rb26 is badass till it starts having crank issues....I know there are definitely replacements that make those issues less of a worry, but i'd rather stick with an ls1...far less shit to worry about breaking.

    I love the TT LS1 R34, its badass and pisses a lot of people off... i'm all for it! I'll hopefully have a car with an ls1 in it sometime before I die.. Hopefully either a late 90's ws6 or SS Camaro....I like the camaros more myself.

    There's a guy who put a turbo'd b16 type r into a mini around here. I started laughing when I saw the 2.5" exhaust on it as I walked up to him. Then I saw him run a low 10. Without slicks.

    I'll see if I can find the pictures.
