I hate this view on the GTR....
The skyline does not ALWAYS get an R series engine. First of all, the series is RB. Second of all, it's only the R31's and newer that have gotten the RB engine. I'm sure when the RB block came out, people were like "I can't believe their ruining the skyline with a block other than the FJ, what the hell."
It's nothing but the fact times are changing, the RB block is getting out of date, and they need something new. That doesn't mean the RB is a bad block, it means it's not up to the current emissions requirements for new cars. And emissions doesn't mean slower. It means new technology. They are switching to the VQ block, so quit whining. It's not like the VQ block is weak. It's already been proven too.
