Has anyone ever grafted a V8 into a GTR chassis? I've seen the spaceframed quad turbo Merc V12 car but never a V8 engined Skyline.

Yes, Tony(skylineUSA) is building a large V8 skyline into a GTR body. It isn't using any GTR transmission bit. Just good old RWD. The power to weight ratio has been worked out that it should cover the 1/4 in less than 10s.

umm all I know of is the ancient pushrods LS1 V8 into a R33 GTS in Austrailia. How about V8 conversion with GTR's 4WD trainy, anyone ever heard of been done?

One of these would slot in more easily:

Id rather just bin off the GTR and buy an XR6Turbo so you got the entire car.

Aweosme cars IMO, think they look the tits, and obv rare here too.

Engine is the bollocks as well, over 1000bhp on stock crank is always a good look.

Would one of those in a GTR run for the GTRs or Rainbirds Shonky Ford team in TOTBVI tho? :confused: :chuckle:

Isn't there a Penzoil R34 replica with a V8 in it??
No mate, that's the V12 mentioned earlier in the thread.

Ahh! Cheers Jeff. I've seen it mentioned on the other site but never put two and two together.

Too true! AWD would be nice to get the power down though.


On the original topic, I'd be surprised if someone hasn't put an LS-series V8 in one.
