    Or maybe these Konigs under a Bayside Blue R31?

    You can get 4x100 drilled to 4x114.3
    The r31 and my bb4 have the same bolt pattern..

    Ok, what is the difference between the 4x100 and the 4x114.3, the distance between the center of the lug studs?

    Waaaaaait then how can they get drilled to 4x114.3? I've seen some wheel threads and they buy 4x100 and get them to work on preludes and all they really say is "gettin them drilled out to 114.3"

    maybe just "drilling out" the holes to make them a little bigger?

    Yeah, i think the 114.3's are wider than the 100's. It's not a matter of drilling out the holes, but rather the distance between the studs. As the drawing suggests, from any two studs opposite each other that are 4 lugs, they are 100cm apart from the center of the studs. Or in the case of my R31, 4 lugs, 114.3cm apart. I think it would structurally compromise the wheels, as far as mounting is concerned.

    Trying to find out if the Rb series engine uses a metal valve cover. Thinking about having it powder coated after i get the car.

    Wagons are always a good idea lol. Especially the GT-R wagon or an EVO wagon those things are amazing. And I don't know if making the holes on the 4x100 just slightly larger to accommodate an extra 14.3cm would really be hurting to very much. If you are spreading out the hole to the outside then the inside of the hole would not be in use and would be like it wasn't even there. Not sure but something to think about.

    I'm leaning more toward the wagon now. It's family friendly, while still retaining that classic JDM look i want. Unfortunately, i would lose the iconic dual circle taillights, but i could always widen the rear of the car to accommodate the R31 sedan and coupe tails. It would be kept clean, no wild body kits or anything (they don't make any anyways to my knowledge), and rare JDM wheels. I do want to get one with an RB series engine, but i want costs kept to a minimum at first. Just an RB engine that runs good with a manual. I do want to go with that scoop you showed me Dennis, and underneath the hood an RB26DETT, RB28DETT, or an RB30ET, But the RB26DETT would produce more power, even if i dropped ¥1,500,000 ($19,137.60) on an RB30DETT kit.

    All for getting a wagon and modifying it as far as performance but if it were mine I'd keep all the exterior original such ad headlights, tails and I wouldn't do any body molding or widening of any kind.. But that's just me. What kinda price are you lookin at for the wagon?

    Not sure yet. And i kind of agree with you about the body. But, the Skyline has specific tails that just go with it, and i feel the Skyline wagon should have those tails. It can be done in such a way where it's clean and looks factory. I need to contact Ryan at JDM Legends about one, but i'm looking to spend as clost to 17 grand as possible. As long as it has an Rb and a manual, i'm happy. I could have JDM Legends install an RB26DETT and paint it, but i want the pleasure of working on it too.

    I wonder, would a roof spoiler sticking straight off the back look good? or maybe one with just a slight upward slant? No fiberglass mind you, actually mold one out of metal and weld it on. I think it'd look killer. Kinda similar to that Del Sol with the duckbill on it. Can't wait to get my Skyline next year. I've got SO much planned. Very Happy

    not too sure on how I like the idea of putting something on the car that wont come off. Just my personal preference, saw a 95 Eclipse today with the rear bumper, fenders and side skirts molded on and they were old style kits that just look way too crazy for that car. I would not add anything to my car that would have to be welded on just because opinions and styles change. I am forever changing my mind on things I like for the hatch. All I have to say is be careful what you do cause you might decide later you don't like it then it's harder to change out. As far as ideas for a Skyline, I know what you mean, I have all sorts of plans for a few different cars I don't have quite yet lol. Gotta make plans for future projects so you know just what you want as sson as you get it right?

    Didn't see the pic at first but yeah that actually looks really good on the wagon, looks like it could be factory and keeps that Skyline round tail light look.

    Yeah, i see what you mean about the rear wing. I'll see if theres a JDM one, but I'll probably have to make one.
