Hello everybody. I'm new to the forum and the world of GT-Rs, so I wanted to quickly introduce myself.
My name is quite obviously Fritz though I'm not German. I live and work in the tiny and beautiful country of Luxembourg in the heart of Europe. I work as a teacher in a correctional facility for delinquent minors, which pays well enough for me to finally be able to afford a GT-R. Before the GT-R, I have owned a few cars like a Renault Megane R.S. (loved that one, but after 8 years it started falling apart), Nissan 200SX S13 (equipped with a CA18DET), a VW Corrado G60 and a few more.
I bought a used GT-R in regal red two weeks ago with about 24000 miles on the odo (38000 km actually); it was pre-owned by a lady from Berlin, and before that a Nissan dealership owned the car for about 3 months.
My main concern was to get a low mileage car that hasn't been tampered with, so yesterday I took it to the dyno to see if it made OEM power. And it does: The result is 550 PS and 680Nm. The engineer at the testing facility later compared the results to other stock GT-Rs they had previously tested and they made more or less the same figures, so I guess that's OK.
I still need getting used to the "weird GT-R noises", so be prepared for me to post a few vids with questions like "is it supposed to do that?"
Oh, and here's the dyno sheet. Since it's in French, I'll translate:
Puissance Moteur (mesurée) = engine power (measured)
Puissance Roues (measurée) = wheel power (measured)
Pertes Puissance (mesurées) = drivetrain losses (measured)
Puissance Moteur (corrigée) = engine power (corrected after DIN)
Couple (corrigé) = torque (corrected)
Quick question here: are the drivetrain losses normal at only 52 PS? I thought they should be much higher on an AWD car.
