If/when you go check out the GT- R VEX modified, they put a twin turbo kit in it and some other goodies, I think it is suppose to have close to 600 hp and 600 tq! but won't know till later on in he week if I can ask how it went, since I cannot make the show. Take lots of pics !

I thought the only gtr that he's been modding is my dads R35 but it's not like he can't mod other models.. i'm guessing your talking about an r34 or something.. ryan sent the r35 to an exhast shop for a custom design that he might try to sell at the shop. and i know they were also talking about trans work, there was also a couple quotes for either the Alpha 9 kit.. or a cheaper.. "his" version of the alpha 9 kit.. an in house engine build.

I don't have the exact details but i do have the emails sents back and forth. Only prob is my dad's business has been slow this year due to unseaonably nice weather. so i'm not sure what his final decision ended up being. what i do know is he'll be at Race the base this august. trying to beat his 305km/hr run down the runway. Id be supprised if my evo could hit 280 in the same distance.

But i'll be at the show on sunday.. and still trying to work out the time.. a buddy of mine with a gen coupe is going.. so we'll both be there with our girl friends and camera's .

as nice as the 5.0 is.. they get pounded in auto x... and unless they have decent suspension set up's they suck at the road course too
