    A new impala perhaps?

    well after a bit of searching, i found that the r-31 Passage GT 's have the RB20DET, a 2.0l DOHC inline-6 turbo with 180hp at 6400rpm. The base model was now using the CA 18, a 1.8l DO-HC 4-cylinder with 100hp. Nissan introduced the R31 Skyline GTS-R in 1987 with a RB20DET engine tuned to 210hp thanks to a different turbocharger and different exhaust manifolds.
    The engine tuning was supported by an improved suspension and tuning on many other parts of the car, to give the GTS-R a more sportive character overall.

    hope this helps....

    Actually it is perfectly legal to have a right hand drive in canada. u don't even need a permit or anything that people think. Driving felt pretty wierd, but I'd get use to it, I have to say that the RB20DET is a very nice engine, even at stock boost! I love the feel of a factory turbo rear wheel drive car!

    I thought Skylines are illegal in Canada, some shit about passing safety requirements or something. I wonder if we'll get an Evo when the Mitsu dealers open up....

    All rules pertaining to importing cars are thrown out the window after the car becomes 15 years old. You can import any vehicle that's older than 15 years.
