    A 240 w/RB25 is still not a skyline.

    I realize that, but the Skyline's are kinda pricey. Just showing him another alternative for a decent price. Slap me silly if you want to, I dont mind :p

    send your car to full race, leave 12 grand on the seat, return to pick it up in a couple months.

    R14 y0. complete, awd, the whole 9. not just a motor swap.

    No I said I would buy one for $20K, and I would if it was leaglized

    I really like my S14, I'm buying shit for my R33 brake upgrade right now, should be finished and ready to install by tax return season, which is where I'm getting the money for my Tien setup, eventually I'll figure out what I want to do with my engine

    Right now I'm leaning towards buying an S15 front clip

    this is all i can post right now.

    i've read the full text of the up-coming magazine release.... and let's just say the car is fucking sick.

    it LOOKS like, swap, body work, and done, but my god...
    everything has been changed to skyline spec. tossed the machphersons for dual wishbone, modded frame rails, the whole nine. crazy work.

    I wonder how effectivly all that work addresses the problems the extra weight presents...

    that being the only drawback to an RB in an S14

    the weight is counteracted with all the additional hp and tq. they lose driveability. but i have seen them smash like no other on the freeway. i'll see if i can dig up the rb26 s14 douche bag racing an r1.

    that would be my main question, does the AWD and double wishbone actually ressurect it's driveability...

    If I did this I would probably never get involved with another car for the purpose of tuning agian, but a finished product like this is what I'm after and the car is paid for and then some...

    where the hell did that link go?
