Skylines has always been one of my passions. The look of the car, the engine as well as the whole experience of it just gave me an indescribable feeling of excitement. I'm sure many share the same feeling to Skylines especially the GT-Rs. I'm blessed on having a BNR32 as my weekend driver but it does not compare to a friend who not only have a similar BNR32, but with a slightly different engine under the hood.
BloodRed, another friend who also drives a Skyline had the chance to witness the tuning of the RB30 BNR32 beast, known among friends as Gorgon (it's black with a monstrous engine, so what would you expect? ).
In his own words;
"The acceleration was astonishing. The exhilaration was a natural high. All the pain in my ear from the dyno run, all vanished. The elevated endorphin levels made sure of that."
I know for a fact that some RB30 blocks have been going around our dear BolehLand to be put into cars ranging from Skylines to Cefiros.
Basically the RB30 block is a tad higher than the normal RB25/26 and was used in Holdens as well as finding their way into Nissan R31s as well. It has long been said that there's no replacement for displacement hence the torque is higher than a similar tuned RB25/26.
Here's another excerpt from the Gorgon experience;
"Then suddenly, right out of nowhere, this surge of lateral gravitational force was pulling me back and wedging me into the tiny R32 GTR seats, jolting me back to life as I struggled to make sense of the ferocity of the T04R turbine that was spooling rapidly on boost hitting the 1.2 mark on the orange HKS meter within seconds... no... milliseconds! My God, that was a devastating yet amazingly pleasurable wake up call I've ever had in my life."
Men and their big engines. What's not to like?
