I am getting rid off my subaru because i have had nothing but trouble!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really want a r33 v spec found one with complete rebuild running 800 bhp. The reason i want one with all the mods is i get 12 months warranty and it saves me a fortune. Is 800 too powerful for road use. I can also get one running 650bhp which would be better for road use.

New to the scene on skylines any help would be grateful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
also hello:) to everyone:

800bhp is NEVER going to be long term reliable really LOL But it all depends how well it is built and how often you actually use all 800 horses :)

I'd be extremely sceptical about any used car warranty. most exclude wear and tear, and will use any excuse to avoid paying



If you think a scooby gave you trouble, a Skyline could be a whole new world of hurt!

I'd aim lower, 4-500 bhp maybe, and buy a UK based car which you can see, and speak to the owner and maybe even research via the forum

The best road use is usually around 400 to 550bhp unless you are running a 2.8 or 3.0 litre bored/stroked RB in which case most of what I have read reckons even 600bhp to 700bhp is streetable if done correctly.

Much better looking for the 2.6 ~450bhp to 500bhp IMHO.

What sort of Scooby set up were you running as even a 400bhp Skyline feels so much faster than a PPP Scoob - a LOT faster.

I just got my hands on my 800hp r32 gtr, and though it is quite civil around town you really cannot drive the car "spirited". It is either running along happily with the traffic or everything is a blur.

Trust T88-34D turbo QUOTE]

Do you know what the jap to english translation of T88-34D is??

Something along the lines of, "ancient laggy turd" I seriously don't know how anybody still uses these pieces of carp.

I'd have thought 800 was too much for the road, a blur sums it up, 600ish is good as a max for the road and reliable if it is done well. That spec with a better turbo would be ok but still very, very fast on boost

Hmmmmm a lot of King Buyer cars on that site. I would run a search on this board about them. Not the best of reputations. I visited them in Tokyo last time i was there and the cars look a lot worse than they do on the website.

add £5000 for std SVA costs plus removing and replacing every uprated part. From the looks of things the whole engine will have to be replaced with std unit as well as wheels, interior trim etc. That must be £3000 alone if not more.
