With the intention to make you drool. First up is this terrifying R34, probably designed so that you could eat food off of it.

Next up is the Scorch Racing S15 rear, a contender in the 2012 (and 2013) World Time Attack competition. It set a new lap record at Tsukuba Circuit last year of 52 seconds. It gets over 800HP from a heavily modified 2.2 liter SR20DET.

It wouldn't be right to not include at least a few Zs on this list. This is a 240z owned by Mark Rolston with a 600HP RB26DETT under the hood. This car ultimately cost more to build than most used Ferraris do. The build quality is absolutely stunning, and you can see the time and care put into it in this video:

It's not for show either, it receives regular track duty.

This is an extremely modified Z32 block with lots of custom fabrication.

Some classic engine porn, this cutaway shows the intricate inner workings of hte Nissan S20, which produced 160HP from 2 liters... back in 1966. DOHC, ITBs, and 4V, it had a molded exhaust manifold that gave it an extremely high redline for the time, letting it produce great specific power for a period carbureted engine. Even more impressive was the weight: 199kg. Race-tuned versions had primitive fuel injection and a 1:1 power to weight ratio from a n/a carbureted engine.

Here is a picture of the real engine, with the head removed:

The next image doesn't look like much, but it is the 500HP VK45DE V8 that brought Nissan multiple championships in the GT500 class of Super GT.

Sorry there's not a larger resolution image of this... but what you see before you is an 800HP, Twin Turbo, VK45DE V8 Datsun S30, a la Devil Z.

But this last photo tops everything else. This is the 1600 horsepower twin turbo 4.0l Nissan GT-R motor used in the AMS Alpha Omega GT-R. This car will do 8.6 seconds in the quarter mile, and over 233 mph in the standing mile.
