Damn nice looking car, :( but no mention of HP, a well done Greddy would probably walk it.

Yeah if it is just a Run of the mill sr29 swap it has maybe 200-240whp, i dunno why that would be considered mean by most of us.

I'm sorry, but SR20 FTL.

From what I've seen out of the BP1.8 its every bit as good as an SR20. Easier to find cheap parts for, millions of interchange, don't have to special order crap, and it'll make the same freakin power stock longblock boosted! I looked at an SR20 when I had my 240sx, decided it was a huge waste of money and sold the whole project.

FWIW.
