This is something that greatly worries me about the GTR. It's fairly potent in stock form, but with tuning it has the potential to be an absolute monster. Given the amount of technology and anti-tuning devices in the car though, I feel like tunability would be better with a Porsche.

What irony that the Porsche is more tunable than the GTR.

I just don't understand why anybody would feel the need to tune this thing at all. 1/4 mile in 11.5 seconds is bloody fast enough people!!!!

Nissan said they designed it to be a Turbo killer. In stock form on the track it indeed appears to be faster, but if it cannot be tuned and the Turbo can... Additionally it's slower than the Turbo and Z06 in a straight line in stock form. The Z06 is a cheaper/similarly priced car as well. What gives the GTR potential is tunability, but if it doesn't have that it doesn't have shit. Tunability is the only reason the old GTR was such a legend.

Just wait until we get some real GT-R in customer's hands. No need to worry so early on.
