I got this message from Nissan. It looks like for those who wants more power will have to go with an M3, or an equivalent future IS300.

Thank you for contacting Nissan North America, Inc. and allowing us the
opportunity to be of assistance.

Nissan is not marketing the Skyline in the United States. Basically, this
vehicle needs a great deal of modifications to pass U.S. industry
specifications on safety and emissions standards. While there is no doubt
that this vehicle does attract a lot of attention and command a high demand
in the market, as is apparent in the markets of other parts of the world,
the cost of modifications far exceed the profit possibilities of introducing
the same vehicle here in the U.S.

Please contact your nearest Nissan dealer or contact a gray market retailer
nearest you . For additional information on the importation of gray market
vehicles, you can contact either the EPA or NHTSA:

EPA (202) 382-2504
NHTSA (202) 366-9550

Nissan does not recommend importing gray market vehicles due to time an cost

If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to e-mail
