    So I come from the Skyline and GTR background, people spend big money on engines in the UK, I had to drive back an R33 GTR with a 1200BHP £80K from an event. Even the sequential gearbox was 30K.

    The S30 is fine handling car and is only just getting people thinking about upping the power that much. There is generally older owners in the UK of the S30 as well that might not be so cared about going that fast. The new restomod brigade wants to stick in different engines as they have not really fallen in love with the L series engine and annoying carburettors etc. We all love the idea of a big power L28 with carburetter sounds etc but living with one day to day might be harder.

    there is money in the UK but we don't know the Australian scene, I shipped in a dash from Auz and it cost £270 and import duty of £75 on a £160 item for example

    Great - Restomod brigade, if your car comes with a pesky L28 and carbs, I'll help you out and come take them off your hands for free. (well, if your reasonably close to the M1/M6 corridor)

    I think the engine and 5 speed box is already spoken for, the injectors and ECU might be up for grabs but I doubt you want them
