have a look at this forum...sign up if you must.

www.sau.com.au (skyline australia) your ratings are measured by the RB series..

look in the for sale section...i haven't seen many RB26 motors in drifters...they usually stop at RB25's with massive blowers...(you can get a RB26 form $5,000 - $20,000...depending on the motor....

with your requested setup..you are looking at a minimum of $18000 with over 50% of it being the motor....plus whatever the indian customs would want to add on.....

i plan to bring mine back...but mine would be on a TR basis.

hope this helps..

Quite a few exotic cars in Australia mate.
Love the line of Mini Coopers. I see 2 of them everyday in the parking lot beside our house. Australia has many Skylines I guess.
We don't see that in North America.:(

That's not a Skyline. It's one of the JDM Silvia's either S13 or S14 can't tell clearly which one from this pic.
