I dunno.

The only problem I had with this car was alignment issues. It seems as if this car may have hit the curb at some point in its life. The left side camber was out quite a bit, causing a hard pull to the right, and inside tire wear. To correct this, I installed adjustable camber links. The left side link is currently about 1 cm longer than the right :S
I didn't get to drive it a whole lot since I fixed/aligned it, but it does seem to drive much better...can't comment on tire wear just yet. Should I take some measurements in the front clip when I pull the motor?
Another problem I have with it is the MAF sensors I think...seems to be a common issue. Sometimes I can drive it hard all day and it works fine, other days I can't do a decent pull without having it sputter its hole out afterwards (Demanding power from it usually provokes this behaviour). That's why I'm converting to a MAP sensor setup...that, and because they're cheaper and more reliable than MAFs. I'm no tuner, but in my mind MAP > MAF.

I speak from experience

Are you planning to rebuild crazy or keep it pretty mild?

Not a ridiculous rebuild...enough to handle 650+whp probably...only planning on running 550-600 though. I dunno....15k worth of parts or so I guess.

Hey man when it comes to that alignments I can help you out. I'm the alignment guy at my work an I know the numbers pretty well. If you take it in for alignment, make sure you get a before and after printout. And let me see both, I'll be able to tell you what's going on and what will pull which way.

What is your camber at?

You have the alignment specs up here in the download files section. 1.05* -+ 0.30*

Even within three quarters of a degree of 1.00*, you will be fine. outside of that, depending on what driving you do, you will be fine. i had -2.00* of camber on my GTS(in the rear), and i did alot of drifting in it, and the tires lasted pretty good.

Next time I get my car in I'll send you the before and after for your advice. After my last alignment I still have bad wear on the inside fronts

Yeah, that would be including the manifold/turbo. I already have a 6boost for it with a divided T4 flange.

Since I installed my camber arms, it seems to drive pretty straight. I don't have a printout for my alignment, so I can't really comment on the numbers. If I have any more problems with it, I'll be sure to write down the specs.

Awesome, I'll trade you. White isn't much better...

To OP, the car looks awesome. Looks like you got a pristine example of a solid/clean GTR.

Black FTW. I love black. I want my next car to be black...
