I’m not really why I wanted to buy a GT-R. I’ve really been a guy that a lot of attention, but I couldn’t get over the that in my opinion there was a Japanese car out there that outperform the Supra. I had already 10.32 @ 141 in my Supra. I just to be faster than that, I guess I felt like if I to be faster at the drag strip I to be able to get out of the hole faster.

My process led me to the epiphany that an AWD would be the ultimate car. I I figured the GT-R to basically be an AWD I had heard all the stories of how strong the were and how they could the same power as the Supras less mods, the basic you read on the internet or in magazines. So I on the hunt for one. – Diehl

If I had a nickel for every time came out with the phrase I am to buy a Skyline, and make it 1000hp, I have my own 1000hp Skyline by The Skyline has been one of the most after import automobiles in country since the day it first in the pages of a U.S. magazine. The Skyline is the fabled creature you about, you read about, you about but never see unless you the car guys’ spank films put on the by Top Secret Japan.

The rumor to me one day while in conversation with at ATI Procharger about a trip we planning for a few feature cars I had to in Kansas City. While we ironing out the logistics of the trip, mentioned he had an associate through his company that was the proud of an 1100hp Skyline, and at first it was

At first I thought to myself: The car exist stateside. Then the reality of it all hit me: KANSAS? What the is a car like that doing in of all places? Do Dorothy and Toto need an 1100 hp Skyline to get to Oz?

And how do you a car that heavy on a yellow road with HKS Hipermax coils? And who is the mad scientist hiding the dark curtain in this world? After all, Kansas supposed to be Mustang, and Camaro country?

This can’t exist in a place Kansas. Even the day I got off the plane I didn’t believe it until I it with my own two hands. From day forward I have believed in and leprechauns.

However, Jake owner of Dieman Motorsports and our Skyline, is not as much of a believer in tales, as his road to completion the R33 project was bumpier than any brick road, filled more fairy tales Disney’s archives, and riddled personal anguish.

If you were ever thinking of a Skyline you may want to make you enjoy being beaten in wallet by a sledgehammer over and again. Problems include: no warranty for these cars, nearly impossible to get parts for in the States, and it’s a pain in the to get by DMV and emissions testing.

As if just your new Skyline registered enough, there is always the if. Remember Murphy’s law? that can go wrong will. Our own Dorothy, Jake was carried off to one day by a United-owned, Boeing-powered Tornado and into the driver’s seat of his R33 Skyline to drive over the and through the desert all the way back to City, but wait.

Murphy’s What do you do when you try to get home in new car and spin a bearing just 2 from where you purchased it? In case you push it back to the get on a plane home the following and wait for the phone to ring.

The dealer agreed to fix the bearing and to deliver the Skyline to Jake in City as soon as it was ready.

One call to the dealership led to the mention of a builder by the name of Wakita, and some checking in the GT-R the consensus was that Wakita was the man for the Reluctantly, Jake shipped his car to California for another attempt at for his car with the stipulation that no one but was to touch the car. Three later, with no calls California, the nerves started

Jake finally got in touch his builder who questioned Jake’s setup, and convinced him to sell and let them take charge of the

I almost had a heart …, but at point I was so frustrated that I down and said fine, build the car, Jake If we are going to do it this way, it the most extreme GT-R country has ever seen, no asked. I basically gave him an checkbook build. This is a statement from anyone, when his car and the shop building it are 1000 miles away.

It was time to go to Cali unannounced and a surprise visit to Blast

The magicians at Blast Racing, and Naoto, were shocked to see walk through the door, but to surprise they had a number of already purchased and the build While in California Jake and ordered the roll cage and the interior layout. Every Jake would receive of new parts bought or fabricated for the and every few months Jake send a check.

At nine Jake put his foot down, it was for the Skyline to be born and shown for the time at HIN Kansas City.

Another flight back to Racing for the final pickup and pulls were scheduled. But an issue caused flooding and the car off the dyno. Crushed at this it was time for Naoto to come to City and tune on the Dieman Dyno after the HIN show. the injector issue fixed, the car down a sad 812hp @ 34 lbs of boost.
