Crank and Piston recently covered this Nissan Skyline GT-R that is being turned into a Australian Touring car replica to race in Dubai.

The twin-turbo setup has been maintained due to the inherent lag associated in single massive turbo upgrades. The original items have however been replaced with Garrett 2860-7′s which are a favoured upgrade with Skyline tuners. Quite how much power this particular Godzilla will be pushing out when it is complete is still an unknown quantity but crankandpiston will be back to find out when Phil completes the build of his Bathurst inspired GT-R.The -7 turbo is the small turbo in the bolt on upgrades for a GT-R. At about 1.5-1.6 bar psi peak boost, it will do about 450 wheel horsepower on a fairly stock engine. At the engine at 1.1 bar they do about 450 horsepower. Same turbo setup we ran on the World Challenge R34 GT-R for the first part of the season in 2006.
|Car looks good and is coming together|
Here is a 1990 Nissan Motorsports video showing the race car that this is being modeled after.
