Not sure exactly.

Yes, the R1 engine could be purchased and fitted 'yourself', or the full 'R Tune' (or S Tune) package could be purchased and fitted by Nismo at the Omori factory. The numbers of full R Tune cars seems to be very low - my earlier research came up with 17 only - The R Tune package for a R34 was an expensive option back in 2005, I'm not surprised very few where Nismo'd - that's in addition to the original R34's cost in 2002.
