I am interested in purchasing GTR 2012 with Alpha7 installed. Or a 2014 Stock with 20k less miles for $5k cheaper.

If i Buy stock i will just mod it to 650 horsepower or so, without touching the intercooler or transmission. Which would be same result as Alpha7 but for 1/2 the cost.

Considering the factory improvements in shocks and other things from 2012 to 2013/14
What should i go for?
Or just wait till i come across 2013?

Depends on whether you intend on modding it...if everything checks out in the Alpha 7 and you think you'd go FBO anyway, I'd go that route.

16 GTR - Alpha 7 - Alpha DP's, Greddy Supreme 94mm titanium MP/CB, Alpha CF intakes, Alpha street intercooler, ID 1000CC injectors, Alpha air/oil separator, Advan GT's w/MPSS, Rexpeed splitter & skirts, and Alpha coolant reservoir

To make 650 Hp, you will spend 5,000.00. or more.

Newer is better but AMS does a fine job with their packages.

Get a GTR tech to download data for both cars so you can make a solid choice.
