Even if you work for an RI, the RI still needs to have the ability to do the work. They have to be willing to do the work. Even if you work there, time is money. Time working on your project will cost them money.

No one else except Motorex has been sucessful at legalizing a GT-R. If it were easy, or even possible, since 1999 , dont you think someone would have done it ?

There is not anyone that knows more about legalizing GT-R's for the US than me. I started working on the project back in 1998, on and off. Full time starting April 1999.

I was standing there watching part of the crash testing. At first I knew nothing about the whole process, but I learned.

Take it from me, its not a car you want to work on. I like and enjoy the cars more than anyone. I have had a lot of fun dealing with them, but you will go under great scrutinity under the current people at the DOT, NHTSA, OVSC.

The people that currently work there see the Skyline name as a dirty word. They have little to gain, and a whole bunch of headaches to get, if they allow Skylines again. Right now its 1996-1998 GT-R's only. They are DOT legal, but those years of cars do not meet federal OBD-II standards. No easy answer on the OBD-II side.

You can sit, and say you are going to do it. Or you can say you heard of people doing it, but I would bet you that it won't happen. Many have tried, all have failed.

In January of this year, I was preparing to preform crash testing on an R33. This was prior to the OVSC partially repealing VCP-17. I was down to a single line item of Motorex's information, that the OVSC would not listen to my arguments.

EPA testing in August - http://gtrusa.blogspot.com/2006/08/m...o-days-iv.html

Re: Newbies:Importing ~ your questions answerd!

With this crash test, youll be closer to gettin the legalizin done. From what I know, the crash test is a big deal of it.

But you see, we are not going to do the crash test. Skylines are not something to be involved with the DOT- OVSC right now.

Sean,

So as of right now, you are washing your hands with the importing of Skylines?

I'll just have to wait until 2014

I won't ever be completely out of it. If someone has enough money and enough time to deal with it. Its just everyone says they have money, but no one is ever willing to invest it in a high risk, and possibility of low return endeavour like GT-R legalization.

People get them in around the law, as kit cars, as parts, though Canada. Not enough enforcement outside the laws, so doing it the right way is difficult.

Re: Newbies:Importing ~ your questions answerd!

A nother importer is ecperformance. They cannont leaglize the car for you, but they can get it to your door pretty cheap. They dont only do this for skylines, but any other car from japan. They have been doing it for years. They are the ones that i bought my type r integra from. Its at least worth a phone call to them..
