This Nissan Skyline HT 2000GT-R KPGC10 is packed with a 1uz V8 likely from a big bodied Lexus. The Lexus V8 has been becoming a very popular swap in the last few years due to its availability,  its aluminum Light weight and smooth power band.

Bagged Volkswagen Vanagon on Gotti Etoile

Volkswagen Vanagon on Gotti Etoile

Lowered Vans get me very excited. Although pictures of this Volkswagen Vanagon have been on the net for a while now on
Airsociety.net, Ive only seen it lately and can’t stop looking at it, I am intrigued. It is bagged, and the complex suspension
has been majorly redone, even the engine has been raised to accomidate the new height.

 

Volkswagen Vanagon on Gotti Etoile

“What’s keeping this car both lifted and lowered at the same time is a set of Air Lift 2500 fronts and 3500 rears. Dual
ViAir 450c compressors sit neatly out back hooked up to a 3 and 5 gallon tank. You read right, dual tanks. He also raised
the 2.0L ABA OBD1 Turbo motor up higher in the engine bay to give him better clearance when aired out. Talk about dedication!”

BBS RS ON BMW E30 16x10 16x9

A Couple of my friends are building a couple of BMW E30 projects, and they asked me how big of BBS RS’s Can they fit under
thier arches? I said 16×10 and they didnt quite believe me. This E30 was the first car that came to mind. I sent them a link to
this car, and now they are looking for similar specs.
