I’m going to start this final installment with what was for me was the car of the show. The Rywire GT3 integra is an open check book of the ultimate tuner car. Everything is the best it can be and has taken over a year to complete. The Car is painted in a Porsche GT3 color, and has a price tag over the cost of a new one.
The K24 block has been sleeved, and the K20 head has been port flowed for better breathing. It has a dry sump oiling system, and the precision 6265 turbo rests at the end of a custom manifold held together with wiggins clamps. The transmission is a sequential Quaife with LSD, and billet bellhousings. Eibach coilovers suspend the car, with AP racing brakes providing the stop.
This is the motor from the greddy 240zx that was built for one of the stars of the Fast & Furious franchise. The car’s original L28 six cylinder was replaced with a modern RB26 from a Skyline but instead of turbos, individual throttle bodies provide the intake sound.
I love a well done Lotus Elise, this one has a custom hand built wide body. The motor has been beefed up with Mahle pistons to handle the boost from the GTX3076 turbo which produces 471 hp. The car sports a full audio system incase the sound of the turbo gets too boring.
This is what happens if a Skyline and a Datsun pickup had a baby.
Rocket Bunny has a kit that turns your 90’s 240sx into a 70’s Datsun bluebird.
Bisimoto was busy turboing a bunch of different cars at this years show. This is the motor of a Honda HRV, if you look at the exhaust manifold you can see that is part of the head. All 4 cylinder motors in Honda’s will have this new head, and it will make tuning a lot harder.
This FRS with a 2JZ from a Supra, and is setup to drift, but I’m sure with that kind of power it could be good at anything.
This Sr20 fit so well it looked like it was placed there by Mr Nissan himself.
This Datsun 1600 is what carried that SR20 above.
Mad Mike the drifter had this custom 4 rotor, twin turbo motor built for the European Drift series. The motor produces over 1000 hp and propels just a little MX5 that it sits in. Check out the videos online of this thing whipping around, the sound is great.
There where surprisingly a few NSX’s at the show this year, this was the best one. The car rides on an air suspension, and didn’t have anything crazy done to the engine just some bolt parts. The whole car has just a complete look, from the rare wide body kit to all the carbon fibre dress up parts, and the gold painted rims.
The NSx’s Interior was where the car really shined, everything was wrapped in Alcantara or carbon fiber. The Recaro seats where reupholstered to match, and the Cusco 4 point roll cage added the little bit of race look to the chassis.
The final car that caught my eye was this RX7 with a 4 rotor engine from the same company that made Mad Mike’s. it has been converted to run individual throttle bodies instead of the twin turbo set up. This engine has some fame as being owned by a famous blogger who lost this engine due to UPS errors.
