    Considering none of their previous brothers did? (R32-R34) but rather bastardized DNA monsters of them did?

    i saw a black GTR yesterday, i didnt recognize it at first...from the front is looks a little bit like a body kit'd Z, but then i saw the badge and watched it turn. They look pretty damn awesome in person.

    How would you know this? And if they did introduce a traditional manual, how do you know it would be a 5 spd? It could be 6-7 spd manual.

    I haven't been posting/lurking as much lately over there lately. My friend got a GTR too several weeks ago. I have yet to get a ride in it, but he's already offered. I was there when he received it. I do hear they are a blast to drive. congrats.

    Oh I did last Thursday night! :eek4::bowdown: That thing is amazingly fast. Burns out all 4 tires, just throws you back against the seat. I told my friend, I'm gonna go home feeling like my car is putt-putting along. That sealed the deal though, I'm definitely gonna turbo charge my NSX. It's plenty fast for me, but why not put a blower in it.

    I bet you could get that up over 25 with fuel injection and a high-compression head.

    I could get 30-32mpg hwy with a turbo setup that'll also put down 400whp. It's all about the tune, but I don't have any money to change anything.
