Slydeways JDM 1983 Nissan Skyline DR30 RS-Turbo

Mclarenman
Although making about the same power as the L20ET-powered GT-ES models, the version of the Skyline initially known as the 2000RS was released in October 1981 as more of a stripped-down lightweight racer, without as many luxury extras included (quoted curb weight was only 1130 kg). These were equipped with the naturally aspirated 4-valve per cylinder DOHC FJ20E engine generating 110 kW of power at 6000 rpm and 181 N•m of torque at 4800 rpm. In February 1983 the DR30 range received a significant boost in performance with the introduction of the turbocharged FJ20ET engine in the 2000RS Turbo. Front brakes were also significantly upgraded to cope with the power increase. Further changes were made in 1984, most notably the addition of an intercooler, revised compression ratios and turbocharger exhaust housing to the FJ20ET powered model, now known as the RS-X Turbo C and increasing output to 151 kW of power at 6400 rpm and 245 N•m of torque at 4400 rpm. DR30 RS-Turbo To this day the FJ20-powered R30 Skyline remains a cult car both at home and overseas (there are still dedicated "one make" drag racing events for this model in Japan), and is credited with rejuvenating the Skyline brand in the early 1980s. It also paved the way for the eventual re-introduction of the legendary GT-R badge. #Fast #GTR #nissan #R30 #Rims #skyline #Tires #Turbo
