    :eek:Think back, for a few minutes, to the first time you felt the surge of acceleration provided by a turbocharged car. For mostof us, that was a defining moment in life: The first time the small of your back was pushed into the seat, fighting against the expanding g-forces as the boost built and sent you rocketing down the road in an unforgettable rush of acceleration.

    Now multiply that feeling times 1000 hp, add the increased traction of four-wheel drive and take into account the colossal effects that racing slicks have on propelling a car forward and you have the A'PEX V-MAX Pro Skyline. With a best quarter-mile time to date of :loopy:8.47 seconds at more than 165 mph, the Skyline lives up to its very Japanese V-MAX namesake--Velocity Maximum.

    That's right, 1000 hp---a number more often heard in the NHRA ranks of drag racing than the import scene...

    All that power, believe it or not, is generated from the R33 Skyline's stock displacement of 2.6 litres and is attained at 28 lbs of boost. The barely oversquare RB26DETT powerplant uses readily available off-the-shelf A'PEX cams, valve springs and connecting rods round out internal mods to the mill. Twin 90-mm Infiniti airflow meters feed two IHI turbochargers.

    :eek: In other words this car is fuckin DANGEROUS!!

    1000 hp? That's really nothing on an RB26DETT...

    There is a guy in Austrailia who has an R33 that makes over 1200 hp to all four wheels...it has an 11,000 rpm redline. Speaking of which, when it was put on the dyno, it produced so much wheelspin that the horsepower numbers produced were not accurate. It'll be a very quick car once it stops snapping driveshafts.

    The HKS R33 drag car has a record ET of 7.671 @ 181.98 mph. wow.

    i have to build my dream car..
    RB26DETT powered bluebird coupe with all the AWD shite, etc. bluebird body stretched and flared to fit over the skyline chassis.

    either that, or just get an R34.
    i saw one at a local shop once.. silver with the anthricite wheels.
    specs on that model: flaccid to whangtastic in 2.4 seconds.
    the dude that owned it was buying all redline oils (like 2 cases $$) and talking about the turbo upgrade sitting on his coffee table at home. fucker.
