Stillen IMSA Nissan 300ZX on the Dyno 2010
Steve Millens IMSA Nissan 300ZX on the Dyno at the 2010 Stillen Open
house. Sorry I did not get a Dyno number off the car. It was
spinning the tires quiet a bit on the Dyno. Josh from Stillen said :
It put down a whopping 65whp.. :)
Yes the turbos spool so fast it had
issues getting traction to the Dyno, even at lower RPMs in top
gear.. just did burnouts..

Pickup Power: 1959 Corner-Carving Apache - /BIG MUSCLE
Back in 1959 the idea of having a pickup truck that could go around corners
was simply ludicrous. These trucks were meant to haul farm equipment,
construction supplies and tow stuff, not shred corners and pull
lateral-g's. Owner Wes Drelleshak has always liked trucks, however he's
always had a special affinity for one in particular - a 1959 Chevrolet
Apache with the rare Fleetside bed. He bought it with the intention of
making it his daily driver, but then something happened... He found out

Nissan Skyline R32 GTR
~NOT MINE~ R32 skyline ...2.8 liter stroker 6 speed hks transmission low Boost..
The HCR32 Skyline debuted in May 1989. It was available as either a 2-door
coupe or 4-door sedan/saloon, all other bodystyles were dropped. It
featured several versions of the RB-series straight-6 engines, which had
improved heads (the twelve port inlet was gone) and used the ECCS
(Electronically Concentrated Control System) injection system. Also
available were an 1800 cc 4 cylinder GXi model. Most models had HICAS four
wheel steering, with the rear wheels being hydraulically linked to the
front steering. The 2.5 litre version became one of the first cars made in
Japan to feature a 5 speed automatic transmission. The GTS-t Type M
included larger five-stud 16 in wheels, four piston front callipers and
twin piston rears. ABS was optional (except for the GT-R), viscous LSD was
standard on all turbo models and
optional on all but the GXi.
GXi Type-X - 1.8 L CA18i I4, 91 hp (67 kW)
GTE Type-X - 2.0 L RB20E I6, 125 hp (93 kW, 172 N m)
GTS Type-X, S, J - 2.0 L RB20DE I6 155 hp (115 kW, 184 N m)
GTS-25 Type-X, S, XG - 2.5 L RB25DE I6, 180 hp (132 kW, 231 N m)
GTS-t Type-M - 2.0 L RB20DET turbo I6,
212 hp (158 kW, 263 N m)
GTS-4 - 2.0 L RB20DET turbo I6, 212 hp
(158 kW, 263 N m) Atessa (RWD w/ FW assist)
GTS-4 - 2.6 L RB26DE I6, 225 hp (169 kW, Atessa (RWD w/ FW assist) Autech
Version - auto only
GT-R - 2.6 L RB26DETT twin-turbo I6, 280
hp (206 kW, 368 N m) Atessa (RWD w/ FW assist) also NISMO, V-Spec and
V-Spec II variants.
The GT-R returned with twin ceramic turbochargers, all-wheel steering, all wheel
drive, and 280 hp (206 kW) at 6800 rpm. The RB26DETT engine actually
produced ~320 hp, but it was unstated due to the Japanese car makers'
"gentlemen's agreement" not to exceed 206 kW (276 hp). The engine was
designed for ~500 hp in racing trim, and then muzzled by the Exhaust, Boost restriction, and ECU. The electronic Boost control had a small physical
restriction in the control lines. It was marked in yellow so the new owner
could remove it and enjoy a safe factory Boost increase. The GT-R had Super HICAS, a
more advanced computer controlled four wheel steering system using electric
The GT-R had a significantly larger Intercooler, larger brakes, and
aluminum front guards and bonnet. Other distinguishing features include
flared front and rear wheel arches. More supportive seats were fitted, and
the turboBoost gauge and digital clock were removed
from inside the instrument cluster. The clock was replaced with a torque
meter that indicated how much torque was being delivered to the front
wheels (0%-50%). Oil temp, voltage and turboBoost
gauges were fitted below the climate control.
The Porsche 959 was Nissan's target when designing the GT-R. The chief
engineer, Naganori Itoh, intended to use the car for Group A racing, so the
design specification was drawn up in conjunction with a copy of the Group A
rules. The Nordschleife production car record at the time of development
was 8'45" - set by a Porsche 944. Nissan test driver Hiroyoshi Katoh reset
the record with a time of 8'20". Best Motoring managed 8'22"38.
The R32 GT-R dominated JTCC, winning 29 races from 29 starts, taking the
series title every year from 1989-1993. It took 50 races from 50 starts
from 1991-1997 (latterly R33) in the N1 Super Taikyu. The R32 GT-R was
introduced in the Australian Bathurst 1000 touring-car race to compete
against GM Holden and Ford V8 saloons, winning in 1991 & 1992. This success
led to the Australian motoring press naming the car Godzilla due to it
being a "monster from Japan" and as Australia was the first export market
for the car the name quickly spread. However, the GT-R's success was a
major contributing factor, sounding the death knell of Group A Touring Car
racing; with the formula being scrapped soon after. JTCC was similarly
blighted by the R32 GT-R, and splintered soon after, leading to the switch
to the Supertouring category and also indirectly to the GT500 category of
When originally designed, the homologation rulebook mandated 16" wheels, so
that's what the GT-R got. This limited the size of the brakes, and the
Nissan four pots weren't really up to competition use. A later change in
rules allowed 17" wheels, so in February 1993 the GT-R V-spec (for Victory)
emerged wearing 17" BBS mesh wheels covering larger Brembo brakes. The
clutch actuation changed from a push to a pull system, and the car received
an active rear differential. A year later the V-Spec II appeared with a new
sticker and wider tires

The worst Hyundai Tiburon ever.
This car came in the shop I work in. I guess the guy up front didn't look
at the car when writing the work order. Apparently, the customer told the
sales guy that he wanted this rotor installed (he had got it from a
After looking at the car and the part he brought in, I'm pretty sure he
wanted the whole upright installed, thinking it was going to get rid of the
play in the LR wheel (it wouldn't, the problem lies elsewhere.)
Anyway, we didn't do any work on it, parked it, and told the customer he
should have it towed to a junkyard. He got in it and drove it home minutes
later. I sincerely hope he junks this thing. I don't like to think there
are cars like this driving on the same roads I am.
