Ok, I went to the Nissan site for Japan. Trying to find info on the new Skyline(even though I can't read japanease). I saw pictures of the 05 Skyline and they look like the G35. I know Nissan and Infiniti are together and all, but is the G35 the Skyline for the states? I've think it is cause I know Nissan is gonna bring out the R35 Skyline over there. Can anyone help me conferm this for me. Thanks in advanced.

The G35s are as close as you can get to the current Skyline in the US. They are not identical.

The appearances are pretty similar, but the Skyline in Japan has a few different drivetrain choices and is rhd.

G35 is RWD too. Skyline coupe has 3.5 engine same like the G35 has but skyline sedan has more engine choices : 3.5 , 3.0 , 2.5.

Are they still gonna use the RB26 motor in there? Or were they just switching to a turbo'd VQ35 engine?

The RB-series has been dead for over two years. There will be a VQ, possibly 3.2L, with electrically assisted turbos for Japan and possibly Europe. For the US, there might be a VK-series V8.

The Infiniti G35 is also known as the Nissan Skyline GT (V35). For history on the Skyline and all it's variations, go here:

whats so great about a Turbo V6, well.. I should rephrase that... I'm sure a well made turbo V6 could haul some ass, but couldn't you also t/c or s/c a V8?

Yes you could, but you'd also have worse weight distribution and fuel economy in the process. Don't forget that in Japan, there is a tax based on the number of cylinders and displacement of your engine. It's already going to go up a bit with the new GT-R, since it's VQ will be at least 3L. Why make it skyrocket with a V8?
