AND? SO WHAT. There are people who own both a M3 and a Lotus, for example, yet after 8 years and 19000 posts, I do not recall ever seeing a thread on someone's M3...or GTR.

What? My post had unbelievable depth, like the Clippers' backcourt. You are just too much of a dumbass to comprehend what I had typed. Hopefully, you get this post.

And who the hell are you to insult people? I suppose it comes from insecurity and the feeling of being threatened. All I did was make a joke. I guess you don't know what 'LOL' (Laugh Out Loud) means. Please next time remember this so you won't get your panties in a bunch.

So make like a Kappa and step.
Ohh..i guess you told me huh?

Incredible work and incredible car! Just ignore the haters, cops, and doubters. I'm looking to get a new GT-R sometime in 2012 and I love what you have done. Sign me up! If I'm ever in Atlanta again (which I may be in May 2012) I'd love to check out your version of Godzilla. It might further inspire me!

Once the GT-R makes over 630 ft lbs of torque to wheels the OEM rods will eventually fail, so in order to go any further I will need to build the bottom end of the engine and beef up the transmission. It's a big step and comes with a big price tag, but fortunately I have the skills and the tools to do the job myself. It's a little nerve racking, requires a lot of time, and research... but in the end it will all be worth it.

So....off I go tearing down a brand new 2012 with 3500 miles on it! LOL

I will continue to update this thread as I progress with the build. Enjoy the photos!

I don't plan on doing much more with the car. I would like to turn up the boost on E85, but my current fuel pumps can't supply enough fuel. I will have to go to a triple pump setup which nobody currently makes. AMS is working on it though, so maybe in a couple of months.

925whp..... still blows my mind.

Just for the record, didn't you do this build in a little over 30 days? This wasn't one of those 1 year long shop queen projects. I am impress. A DIY, at home, 900hp monster.

Probably closer to 45 days and it was done in my own shop behind my house. I'm an IT professional by day, but this is my passion.

Wow, 45 days? I'm sure you work faster than many shops around here!

We gotta see some pics of that shop of yours! I am trying to already scheme how I want to build my own man cave behind my future home.

Amazing work!
