I don't know shit about shit when it comes to forums. My name is Ronald I am from the half assed state of Illinois and I currently and likely forever own a TH1 R32 GTR that is undergoing surgery by myself in my garage. I am here to learn as much as I can and come across deals I don't need as often as I can!

Full strip down of block, getting machined and forged. Stating twin because I appreciate the hidden turbo look that stock layout offers. Painting the engine bay rose gold also!

Probably much the same reaction you would get here in Oz if you turned up to a car rally in a 78 Pontiac with a massive chook on the bonnet.  Cars are cars and the more diverse you get the more interesting the things are.  Guessing an R32 is an uncommon site in the US.

C'mon feel the Illinoise.

Hello Wisconsin!......wait, wrong state, um.....

Hey Kenosha!.....wait. Um. Still wrong. Um...

Gary. The most dangerous city in the mid west. Oh. hell. Still wrong.

Um? Is the wind off the lake cold at this time of year? (I was working on the steel plant on the other side of the state line in East Chicago a few years ago at this time of year and it was focking awful.

Here's some useful math for everyone:

How to convert US Horsepower into actual Horsepower (ATW).

(US HP Claim) x 0.80 = actual HP.

This also works for HSV's except it's (HSV owner claim) x 0.75 = actual HP.

Because it is in offensively poor taste.

Black. White. Body colour. Those are the only acceptable options. Unless the body colour is rose gold. Then .....shudder......hand in your man card.

Rose Gold engine bay is only marginally less worse than putting GTR badges on a GTSt.
