Questions on FBO to 1200+WHP

02 October 2020 - 11:46 AM

Hey everyone,
I had a GT-R which I sold a few years ago, and now I'll be looking to get another one in the coming months, preferably a 2012+. My old one had many upgrades and made about 750WHP.  This time around though I'm looking for 1200-1300WHP on e85.
Obviously it will require extensive upgrades, including a built engine and transmission. If I find an already fully built one that I feel is a solid build, that might be the way to go. If not, I would be looking for a FBO to build upon.
So what I'm after is what components should I be looking for in a FBO build that would make the transition to a full build as easy as possible. Or what parts would you be looking for to property support such a build. Basically, I don't want to get a FBO build that would require replacing most of the upgrades because they would't support my goals.
My goal would be a very reliable street setup that I can have a lot of fun with. Limited track events, but I do enjoy launching them frequently.
I figure the build would consist of these main categories...
1. Engine
2. Turbos
3. Induction/Intercooler
4. Exhaust
5. Fueling
6. Tuning
7. Transmission/Drivetrain
Let me know your thoughts.
