Part II: Visiting Phoenix’s Power SPL

I imagined when I was at that place that you reader were a garage owner. Thinking about what do you want to repair or tune.

I also imagined myself working there for a while every day, enjoying the real jdm performance everyday. Upgrading the powerful GTR or turboing Altezza’s. A workshop full of GTR’s.

Visiting Phoenix’s Power SPL

Oh, so much sorry for the lack of post this last two weeks. Sometimes is a little harsh to keep posting just with the ambition of show things to the real lovers of r32taka.com.

By this I’m saying that is to hard to keep the level and also that is too hard to fight the big blogs. I know there are so many other bloggers coming here and I’m sure they also understand what I’m talking about.

Well a couple of months back I make a visit to Phoenix’s Power SPL. This shop is located at Kyoto and is one of the biggest specialist in the area and specially in tuned Skyline’s.

Was Miura San (Owner of Autoland aka Rocket Bunny) who drove me to Phoenix’s. Me and Travis Griffith who is probably the highest skilled race car builder in Iowa by now.

First I noticed at that place was a super loud 2jz rolling test its new configuration. It was that loud that we needed to get away of the car, it was so awesome.

Those days seems like Phoenix SPL is getting specialized in the new GTR, there were so many as you will see in the next post about the visit to Phoenix SPl.

Everything is made here, from simple jobs to high improvements.

The black GT86 was the first Turbo GT86 I found in the country which had such a clean work.

Fran’s Nissan GT-R

Whats up reader? Here I am, new post, another car! This time it is going to be another Nissan, but its way better than the Autech I am very sure.

Last september there was a DriftShow organised by the spanish drifter Atila in Carlet, Valencia. I did not knew that there was a GT-R so I was very surprised when I saw it. Casually of life, this is my friend Fran’s GT-R, I knew he   had a GT-R. I seen it last June, but I though it was somebody else Skyline.

What an ass!Looks better when the tails turn on, what do you think? Looks fat, front and rear, aggresive, its a pretty awesome car, and more when you add some Nismo wheels.

But what happens with the engine and the interior? Here is your answer!

Hey, I just met you. And this is crazy.

BYE BRO.

SONY DSC

I have to say I went on it, I can’t describe it, been all my life dreaming with this car, and when you meet one is a very special moment, and when the owner tell you to go with him, its even more special. You sit in the seat of your dream car, a very genuine japanese sports car from the 90’s.. Damn, just awesome.

This is a collection of photos I took yesterday while walking around my area. Kansai is a very interesting region talking about cars and also talking about Japanese history. I have visited some garages around as Navic or Car Care Assist which will be the next post.

Is very common to find lightly tuned cars, I think almos 20% of cars equip exhaust and coilovers and that means that you never can stop watching around for new spots. Nights are very interesting and I cannot wait until next friday to get to entrance of the Meishin Express. I expect some cars going to Osaka to have fun.

As we all already know, the GTR33 is not the most popular of the GTR’s. Although I have to say this is really unfair. It is a very effective car, wide, well looking and powerful, just like another Godzilla.
