It's a competitive market, but the standout R32 GTR build at the last SEMA in our opinion is right here. Take a look!

Running a Nitto 3.2l stroker kit, this RB30-powered R32 GTR Nissan Skyline runs a nice mix of low stress off the shelf parts along with some unique custom features as Josh Ray from Driver Motorsport explains in this [TECH TOUR] from SEMA.

Power wise the RB runs 650hp on pump gas, 1100 on an E85 ethanol blend, and is expected to see 1400hp using nitrous with the aid of a Precision 6875 turbocharger at anywhere from 15 to 30psi depending on fuel. 

Engine and chassis control is handled by a Haltech NEXUS R5 which simplifies the wiring when it comes to the fact this car has no fuses or relays as we traditionally expect. One tradeoff is the use of a mechanic fuel pump to manage the finite amount of electronic input and outputs, but when 1400hp pushes are planned that is certainly not a bad insurance to have.

An RB26 pocket ported head has been used with a Supertech valve train, GSC Power Division billet cams and Kelford Cams cam gears for added adjustability. Nissans 360 degree optical cam sensor is in the rubbish bin with a Platinum Racing Products electronic crank trigger replacing with the reason explained by Josh.

The car still runs a wet sump but the known issues have been addressed in regards to the oil pump and oil flow restrictors added. Underneath a Platinum Racing Products block brace has been utilized along with a Holinger 6-speed sequential, DriveshaftPro single-piece shaft and aftermarket axles all while retaining the AWD system which is also controlled by the Haltech ECU/PDM/Swiss Army Knife.
