i heard some rumors of a V8 going into the GT-R, not i'm not sure if it's a TT or N/A, but...just an opinion question.
do you think putting a V8 in a Skyline would be a good thing or a bad thing? the skyline in my opinion is a V6 car, and it does awesome with it. no need to stick a V8 in it. there's already a reputation behind this car. but what if they screw up in putting the V8 in the car and the new GT-R can't hold up to it's reputaion??? that would really suck.

Surely the skyline is an I6 car?

Personally, I'd quite like to see an all-alloy, closed-deck, de-stroked version of the 4.5V8 in the Infiniti M45, with turbos of course. The R390 engine would also do.

V6:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

You need a little more research before post No4 my friend! ;)

. .I think so too . . there is no talking about V8s anymore in the jap. serious press! I allready mentioned this before in an other thread-:

Like the 2.5/3.5 V6 from Toyota in the new Lexus IS, who replaced the wonderfull S6 from the IS200/Altezza, Nissan will also go for the V6s . .one reason- production costs!

. .Nissan might go in a same direction and leave the smoth S6 behind, the V8 from the Fuga is an old facelifted Block,I don't think Nissan will invest in a RB V8 . .they will go in the V6 direction:smokin:

Which 3 people think a V6 is what the skyline built its 'rep' on?

Think it'll be a V6 due to emissions regs, but more important, will it be called Skyline at all?
No, it's going to be called the GT-R, no skyline in the title

You don't know what your talking about. You sound very silly, most people on this forum know what a skyline is, you are a little confused I think. Nissan first put a V6 in the 300zx in 1984 if I not mistaken. That has nothing to with Skylines check out this website if you don't believe me.

Skyline's don't have a history with V configuation engines.
Think before you speak.:smokin:

yes I believe the inline 6 cylinder Twin Turbo engine was used in the GTR32,33,and 34:)

I once had a Ford Capri with a 3.0 V6 but no turbos is that the same:D

Its a shame that the inline 6 Skyline ends here...world market forces and all that...its been my favourite engine ever since my mates old man had a TR6.
Twin turbos are just an added blownus!:D :rolleyes:

As long as it is twin turbo, I am happy with whatever engine, the bigger the engine, the better..........any high revving 3.5L+ V6, V8, V10........would do :D

It would be even better if they make it N/A, so I can keep my money in the bank and lose my obsession to the GTR for good :p
