customer feedback

1989 Nissan Skyline GTR

Just a quick e-mail to say thanks for all your help, I picked up the car yesterday and all seems to be fine! When I got the car yesterday, the S-AFC was already plugged in and working, so that was great. Nothing had been stolen, gauges were still there, boost controller, turbo timer, Sony head unit & stacker were also still there. Just thought I'd let you know! Thanks again Ben.

With 208kW (280hp), electronically controlled 4WD, Active Yaw Control and an active centre diff the EVO 8 is devastatingly quick in even an amateur’s hands. The hood and front quarter panels are aluminium to reduce weight, and a carbon fiber rear wing was made optional.
