    Modify at your own risk, the GTR doesnt have the strongest of gearboxes.

    IS-F > GTR. Hopefully the GTR tanks and gets under 60k, which would make it a much more attractive buy.

    New car lots of technology, Issues are bound to happen. I'm sure nissan will figure it out and warrenty will help out most owners.

    You people, jesus christ. Why would you modify a car like that? It's already really powerful and has great suspension. It's not a fucking Honda Civic.

    Gee, I don't know. Why do we 'mod' anything? Why don't we all just buy fucking Veyrons instead of Buicks, Toyotas, and Fords? Oh wait...we 'mod' because there is ALWAYS room for improvement, in ANY production car.

    You're right, the GT-R is already powerful. Almost powerful enough to catch the RWD pushrod-powered Chevy supercar. Room for improvement...

    Like you're really gonna run into a Z06/ZR1 on public roads, and you're both gonna go at it top speed / full throttle. You better mod your GTR just in case you need to beat that vette. :rolleyes:

    Yes, because once cars are bought by enthusiasts, they never see a track, ever.
    My point was, people mod cars because they feel they can get more out of them. Every production car has compromises; power for driveability, weight added/handling softened for comfort, compliance with emissions, MPG, etc.

    So, we mod; be it a Camaro, 'Stang, Lambo, whatever. The GT-R vs ZR1 example was just a sarcastic jab at Nissan sacriders, but you can just insert any make/model for comparison.

    always good to modify grey market cars with no warranty

    then bitch when they fail.


    people think that they're smarter than Nissan engineers. LOL

    Obviously a prefabricated attemp by Z06 sackriders to tarnish the reputable GTR badge!:nono::mamoru:

    Honda had shitloads of automatic transmission problems in the V6 Accords, TLs and CLs and it went on for about 3-4 years. Still, given the intended use of the GTR, you'd think Nissan would have way overbuilt the transmissions.

    Don't give me that shit. It's a great car to start with; it doesn't need mods to make it better. You can make it better if you want, but with the GTR you're actually getting the performance you paid for, so you can't expect to just "discover" 50 extra horsepower hiding behind a restrictor or an overly-cautious engine program.

    How about if we don't evaluate every single car under the sun according to the same criteria we use to evaluate $20,000 pocket rockets? The same considerations just don't apply across the board like that.

    No, there isn't always room for improvement. Carmakers have figured out that some people want cars that are pushed to the very limit of their mechanical capabilities, and so they produce cars like the GTR. They already did all the hard work for you, that's why it costs so goddamned much.

    The Gallardo is > any Nissan. Have you seen the thread on Allanlambo's machine? Hell, there are tuner McLarens out there.

    There is always room for improvement in a production car. Always.

    Shitloads of room for improvement in the Z06, have a customer who laid down 562 hp on the rollers with headers, extrude honed intake, cold air intake, Corsa exhaust w/crossover and a couple dyno tunes. Still has the stock cam.

    The GTR has snails, there is lots of potential for more power. LOTS.

    Sounds like the GTR is going to be a RX7 FD of it's time.

    Bang for the buck performance.... when it runs....
