When I was a student I always enjoyed reading car magazines. I’ve always liked the Nissan Silvia S14 so I saved up some money but couldn’t find a good example to buy. One spring day at the car I saw a red Nissan Skyline R34 coupe, I went over to have a look, sat down in it and just fell in love with this car. Since this all started, up to now ( 6 years later ) I am still continuing modifications here and there gradually.

Giulio’s verdict: Welcome to yet another 34 Skyline on StancedUp. Not sure you can fault Skylines in this shape due to the looks and the mad amount of tuning that can be done. I think Valentin has chosen a good engine to make the swap to, from what I understand is that the NEO spec engine is the latter end of the RB25 units which should be more fuel efficient and had all the best bits n pieces mixed from all previous engines and turbos. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, basically, I want one and I’m seriously considering getting one for my next car….if I ever see one in the right condition.
