New project- R32 GTR with VK56DE ?

Recommended Posts

Hey

 I’m new here so I apologise if this is the wrong section upfront.

i am considering new project cars and was thinking about building a V8 R32 GTR and wanted to ask if anyone has done it while retaining ATESSA and what engines?

If I do it I’d want to retain an Nissan engine and I can’t go past the potential of the VK56 based on performance and available parts etc from the US and as I know that the VH45 will fit I was wondering if anyone had or knows of anyone doing or mocking up a 56DE in a 32 GTR? 

The aim of the car would be to a fast a street car as possible which I will use in drag, roll and top speed racing events.

I am aware of the custom fab work needed and am mainly trying to work out first if the engine will fit along with a nice twin turbo setup along the lines of twin 6466 or 6870s.

Thanks in advance!!

i know you are going to say to be different but why? the fastest street, radial gtrs run tired old rb30 blocks. quickest so far is a 7.4.

what level do you think a vk56 needs to be at to be at that level.

Look up Project Unicorn on Mighty Car Mods (or it might have been running on their mcmtv2 channel).  They did VK41 + turbo into Stagea.  So same same basically.  Shows you what you will need to do.

Beyond that. I echo the sentiments above.  The VK56 is not an inherently super dooper strong engine.  The RBs were fairly over-engineered, but the VKs are much later designs where a lot of overdone speccing was cut out.  Then there is 30 years of dev work in even more over-engineered upgrades for RBs that is missing from VKs.  Sure, the bulk torque from a larger engine would be nice to have, but you can have as much power as you need to make it impossible to drive with a 3L anyway.

yeah. to costly to get a stock engine, then another 6k in mods to make it usable.. (1500whp...) on another note, it would appear ive come full circle... lol...

I'm sure most of us here are not importing an engine from Finland to Australia.
