[14:03] Subl1meRomeo: [14:03] Airj0ckey: this might be a sign [14:03] Airj0ckey: I've been thinking about what engine to toss in the car for weeks...and here it literally falls in my lap. [14:04] Airj0ckey: well...now I should have some power to rotate those friggen steam roller tires I got...and they might even get warm.... [14:05] Subl1meRomeo: Here's what I got on a piece of paper. "****'s motor is from an R34 Skyline GTS-T. I don't know how familiar you are with Skylines, but this was the latest generation of that car. This motor was produced from 1998 to 2002. R34 NEO RB25DET with 5 speed transmission 2.5 liter inline six, DOHC, turbocharged. Power: 276hp @ 6400 rpms, Torque: 193 lb-ft @ 3200 rpms" So that's it, maybe someone up there is looking out for me, or is hinting something.... I did win a $500 scratch ticket the other day.... As soon as somebody buys the brown Z...(I got a deposit today )...the rest of the money is going for a down payment to have a shop rebuild it the right way. And I'm going to toss some stuff on this motor to make it the hottest damn thing since sliced bread. Datsun project price list.
