VT S2 2000 Berlina 5.7ltr
I bought a VT II 5.7ltr Berlina with 42,000 on the clock for $15,900 private sale 4 months ago in Melbourne. I was going to get just a 6, but I cant help my self...lol When I saw it advertised, I thought it was a typo..lol So I rang and bought it sight unseen. Since purchaseing it I put a pair of 6x9 Pioneer 260 watt speakers in the rear and after a lot of research I put a SS coldair induction in and a K&N filtter witch gave me more power and better fuel economy. But like any car it depends on how hard you drive it to how much fuel you use and also how much money you have in your pocket. If you want power and performance, save your pennys and buy a 5.7ltr. You won't regret it.

a VT VX LS1 with cheap upgrades will wipe the floor with a standard to mildly modded skyline in a straight line

this isn't even a serious challenge

If they have CAPA (440KW) supercharger kits for them, then there will be turbo kits out there as well!!

Vt Calais 50th Ann L67
Or if you care about power to weight get a supercharged v6 VS Calais. $1500 into one of them can have them keeping up with a auto gen 3. Spend $7k on one of those and you'll be able to run easy low 12sec passes with good fuel economy and a sleeper v6 sound. Or get a vt-vy version, they weigh a bit more though. Just another option.
