Congrats!

VERY cool cars. When my wife and I got GT5 on Playstation she spent her $25k on a new Miata and made decent track times. I bought a used GTR and smoked her, she was bullE36 M3. Haha.

Idk your plans but please do not make it stall like my buddies:

Hello Kitty(Panda whatever) widebody, $45k TT RB, etc.

Freaking love these cars.

Not a project!

sold 4 projects, a trailer, and a bunch of parts and bought a driver.  Feels way better to look at this than all that stuff.

 

rb26dett

 

gave it a bath inside and out and tagged it 

quote the kids: this is the most comfortable back seat ever

So this is not a GTR.

this is a 1990 gts-t type m, that was quite a high end build back in the day in japan.  Rb26dett swap is very clean and looks factory.  PO installed a Link tunable ecu with speed density conversion. Car has Öhlins adjustable coilovers, molded in flares, gtr front bumper/grill/spoiler, carbon fiber hood, nismo cluster, and a buttload of other stuff that i'll have to go back to find the list of.  It's exactly how I would have built one minus a few things that I can tinker with.  Body is probably 8/10, paint 8/10, interior 7/10, drivetrain 10/10.  Exactly perfect for me, i don't have to freak about a pristine example and I get the Godzilla experience for half the price. 
 

only mechanical plan is upgrade turbos to steel impellers if it has not been done already, will have to look. 

Will do head unit because this one is japanese band so i think maybe can only play cd's

Somewhere I have a photo of m same friends GTS-4 and my Cayman that he bought before his GTR. Neat chin spoiler that you could retract/extend with a button. Might have been speed activated too I cannot remember.

Not trying.

Was willing to get over my trepidation about flying and bureaucracy in order for a chance to drive the Canada car back to Ohio, because OMG
