    Did blow my skyline today :(

    One turbo poped, the leak sprayed 4liter oil into my engine hood in about 10sec!!!!

    One turbo gone bad, cam gone bad, oil pump gone bad, i do think it's more, just haven't got the time to check after yet..

    Think i will spent about 100.000GBP in rebuld ex the new turbo's in rebuld, now looking for about 900-1000hp for everyday use..

    Took a few pics before I did start taking out the engine, did brake 718hp-1050nm before my accident.. and it was working well

    900bhp should be fine for a daily drive.
