Why are Skyline GTS-T's not that popular to modify?

    I'm sure the RB25DET has some great potential. The ugly GTS-T bumper can be swaped to GTR bumper or to something aftermarket. Fun RWD car. :dunno:

    jesus i cant believe that people open their mouths and offer ignornace.


    the GT-S is the non-awd kiddie version of the GT-R. it is a heavy rwd car, with a crappy motor. it is toilet in JP (people dont care much about it), as the S13/14/15 series is a far superior choice on every level for a RWD sports car.

    RB25=ford 4.6 Liter
    Rb26=03 cobra SC motor

    I know exactly what the specs of that model are but it would seem the underdog would still be shown some love cause I know it has some great potential.

    Or atleast in the S-Chasis here in the states it's becoming more commonly swaped in

    For the most part true, but the RB25 still responds brilliantly to modification, unlike the Ford 4.6L

    all you have to do is pick up an option magazine to see whats hot and whats not over thurr.

    its always, always about S-chasis, GT-R, some supra, 4 door sedan (chaser, etc), and ae86 platform.


    everything is < those mentioned.

    I would think a few mods such as intake, downpipe, exhaust, front mount intercoller, Fuel pump, LSD, etc could make it a formidable car. Even though it's over shawdowed by teh GTR>

    Lets see a decent R33 GTR here is about 45K.. A decent R33 GTST is 25K put 20K into a GTS-t it will pretty much rip 75% of GTR's around.

    GTS-t's ain't bad they are no GTR but very good value for money and good performers.

    They all come stock with very good LSD's.

    The RB25DET is actually an excellent engine.

    But the reason why it doesn't get much limelight is because the RB26 is such a more advanced engine. It's not just 100cc larger (actually less than that, it's about 60cc larger)... The RB26DETT's head design is so much more advanced and efficient than the RB25 it just casts too large a shadow so the RB25 can't shine.

    That doesn't mean that the RB25DET isn't a great engine though... It is.

    With those mods, it would still probably be beaten by a stock GTR in a straight line, and definitely around a circuit race.

    and if u wanna keep doing math, quote me the price of an s13 or s14 turbo over thurr?


    if i have 45k to spend, im not gonna buy a 20k car. imma buy a 40k car and put 5k into it.

    trying to get traction in high hp rwd car though does suck though. GTR has a huge advantage over that. What goods power if you can't put it to the ground.
