Cool Event! Does anyone know the name of the Wheels of the gunmetal Nissan Silvia S13? They look awesome, but here anyone sells replicas, me don't want replicas..........


I think the Evo's like a modern day Kaido racer! :) The exterior design is not my case, but from the pictures the quality of work seems to be very well done!

Wow... This is unbelievable! It is such an art to build a well designed race car! @MadMike Whiddett  What intake design will you use for the 26B Engine? Will it be the telescopical pipe desing like in the 787B Le Mans Racer? When you add more Rotors (besides more power that you get) does the caracteristic of the power curve change or is it just like always, but more powerful? Thx

Fantastic pictures! But let me ask you something. In your time as speedhunters i'm pretty sure you heard a lot of cool and fast cars, but what was your impression of hearing a fully race ready Lancia Delta S4? I've heard them once and it was special to hear that supercharger sound in front and the dump turbo sound at the back :)

I studied car design and construction at the school of franco sbarro. As the cars were concept cars,  the parts are not designed to be reliable and enough resistent to endure high class competition. How difficult is it to build a Race Car from Zero and what are the tests that the car with its material has to endure, to can guarantee you to be competitive? Because obviously we compete in races, to win! Isn't it?

Being a car guy, and NOT having all that budget to build a high performance VQ35HR or RB26DETT or SR20, or etc. with forged and reinforced internals and everything around it i absolutley understand the swaps! It's cool and it seems to be a new trend.But in my opinion it depends on which role the car has to play. Give me a Drift car and i privilege a lot of V8 engines over the 13B or SR or 2JZ engines.. Let's face it ( and please dear V8 guys don't get pissed when i say that ) these god ol american V8's are build relatively robust and in some way primitive. Again, i want to precise, as i worked many years as a BMW mechanic i would not put in a BMW V8, i'd still prefer the US V8 motor because of its very good reliability.


Now give me a street car that you maybe track once a year, so in this case I'd swap it just for fun to have some nice sound, power and the Wow effect.


Now give me a track focused sports car, then I'd say no. IMO power is not everything, the car should be balanced and have a good wheight distribution. Best example change a very light 13b for a LS3. I don't know if a FC or FD would still have that famous agility that a RX-7 is famous for. That's my opinion, please correct me or give me advices if i'm wrong or you expierienced other situations.

@otar @KiwiMotoring  We live in Switzerland so we have limited possibilites of tuning a car because of the law. Almost everything is prohibited. He did a fantastic job in customizing that car. If someone doesent like the wheels you should see the car at raceism event with the Messer wheels equipped...  That's just his style, low and slow. You don't need big brakes and a M3 engine to go fast? Everyone knows that on stanced cars big engines and brake systems are only decoration. These cars are meant just for show.. that's it in my opionion. Check the link for the Messer wheels!

@AGR  As JDM_Luca and i are from Europe we know that, but 95% of These GT-R's are absolutley ruined and not even worth the half of the money... I flew to England for one day and made my expierience with a R33 GTR for 10'000 Pounds.. they said it was absolutley stunning and all that ...... The day ended in a catastrohpe... For me it was a lesson that low budget GT-R's are just a pain in the ass..

But you know how it is, you get what you paid for! I'm glad i didn't buy it!

This car is just perfect! It is so nice built and the modifications are all my flavour, the GT25 Turbines are a must for the RB26... Absolutley fantastic. But let me say or ask some things.. First of all i have a dream car with a "realistic" budget that would be without a doubt, a BNR34. My absolute dream car without having to look after the money clearly the Ferrrari F40!

I love how this R34 is built, but damn as it is such a rare superfine machine, is it not dangerous to run such a car on the circuit? I'd shoot myself if i'd crush one of those..

What kind or System of Db Killer unit did he use? Dino you spoke of a triangular spec insert? Does this Little mod already kill that much Db?

I'm sorry for my childish question but how did they make the dB killing? Is this an aluminium plate formed and cutted to the form that we see there? I'll be at anneau du rhin in france on 14. August.... and i think my car's gonna surpass the 100 dB limit........

KW sells the Variant 1 / 2 / 3. What are the benefits of having only the possibility of rebound setting? I bought my 350Z with a Variant 2 already installed but i can't see any benefits in changing the setup because there is no compression to alter as well.


Main target is sporty street driving with some track days during the year.

Thanks Mike for the detailled article. But even I have to give my commetns to some cars.. As a big Z fan, this old fairlady looks not really "ladylike".  But thubms up to the FD. The estetic overall package is very nice.  I know this FD V8 swaps are very useful for drift cars, where you need torque and power. But how is it to drive such a car on street / track? I know the FD's are very agile and fast cars, thanks to the good wheight distribution. Any expierience with that out there?
