I would stay away from that Skyline guy. Something definitely ain't right. Combine that level of shady with the questionable title aspects of a Skyline - and I would be out. I suppose it's possible that he's just a yokel that doesn't understand how these types of deals are done - but if that's the case, then he should just put an ad in his local Craig's List and not try to sell to it to someone several states away. Maybe he expects you to fly down and buy the car face-to-face?
I suppose so. Something is definitely rotten, so I'm out of that one.
On a more positive note, with the new engine tune, injectors, downpipe, larger IC, and exhaust *ahem* optimization ("hand me that cutting torch"), the Golf R is now making 418hp/443tq at the crank on E85 (also removed the limiters). That's a nasty pocket rocket, right there. The heat numbers look really good too, my mechanic drove it around in traffic doing some errands, flogging it where he could, and it never came close to overheating. More testing is needed, but he said that's about as far as we can go, unless we want to rework and upgrade the whole drivetrain. Next we'll look at the suspension.
I'm going to go ahead with the F7, I get the feeling they may not be around for too long, so I may not have another chance to buy one.
