The Skyline V12Plus pipe performed flawlessly today. Lots of noticeable power increase in the lower to mid range compared to the RD Logics pipe I was using. On the straight, the V12Plus was comparable. Even though my engine was running a bit too rich, the pipe helped me improve my best lap times by 3 seconds, putting me just about 2 seconds per lap behind the two top qualifiers. I just have to work on tuning the engine and my driving ( ) and I'll be that much closer.

As I mentioned in a previous post, this is the pipe to get. You won't be disappointed. If it can help me, I'm sure it can help you.

BTW: I'm not sponsored by Skyline - I just want other people to know that it's as good as the top sponsored guys say it is.

Default Another win for Skyline

This past weekend was the start of the Midwest Series and the first race was in Cincinnati, OH. Same track as the 1/8 worlds in '03, and the 1/8 nats later this year. After qualifying 3rd, I was able to take an early lead in the main and hang on to take a 4 lap win over the field. The Skyline pipe was awesome all weekend giving the power I needed down the 270ft straight, as well stupid punch out of every turn. I also used the 4mm shock tower to make sure breaking wouldnt be a problem. Thanks to Skyline for the great products.

I must say your car was flying. I did not know you used the VR12+ .
I also had tons of power in my sedan with the VR12+. The pipe provided an increadibly smooth powerband with plenty of power and run time. This is a great pipe. Thanks Skyline.

I would like to thank ken Li and skyline in advance for all the help they have gave me this year and for the support in getting me ready for the 2006 sedan nats. Their product is awesome, and the personal friendship with Ken isn't that bad . But seriously, i would like to wish the whole skyline team much success in their racing program.

thanks for all the support.... Brian Thomas

Ken Li really is the MAN! Better than Michael Jackson himself!

Seriously, always count on him to be there to help someone out.
