Mikey,....what you should really do is, get a supercharger. Whether it be Whipple, VMP or Roush. You'll be saving money and you can have a beast of a car. You really didn't add any go fast mods to your car if you think it's not fast enough. Do like I said and be prepared to smile.
PLUS,...like I said, you'll be saving money instead of losing it.

Keep in mind that worldwide, Nissan only sold 690 some odd GTRs last year. It's a very expensive niche car with zero aftermarket (outside of ludicrously expensive mods). As others said, maintenance is expensive. The transmission for example... tranny fluid costs just a bit more than $50 per quart... and it takes 10 of those when you do a fluid change.

You don't want to know what they charge you on labor for periodic maintenance.

I keep up with these GTR's here on the coastal bend of Texas, call Orlando Cantu, owner of Cantu Racing who drives a twin turbo, sticky tire GTR to 8.6 sec. 1/4 mile time and will switch out motor soon from original stock intake record setting to "what I don't know yet" but it'll "Haul the mail" look him up on Facebook. Great young man.

GTR is an amazing car, and in the hands of a decent driver, runs high 10s stock with great reliability.

This is one of those "I went looking for cars the other day. It was between a 2015 GT-R and a 2015 Mustang GT. The GT-R wasn't the right color, so I went for the Mustang." posts.

LOL

I SHOULD TRADE MINE IN FOR A 488 GTB!

It was between Ken Block's Mustang and a Prius. The Mustang was just too flashy. I wanted something to get off the line quickly. So I went Prius.
