After my first ever comp

After the Stadium Drift event I got to know the guys from All Type crash and started doing practice days with them. I learnt so much from following Hayden (driver of R32) was a big eye opener driving with someone with a lot more experience/skill then myself.

But then disaster struck and my Forged CA broke a ring land 🙁 All I could think was more $$$$. So I put a lot of thought into it and decided to put a RB25 in the SIL80. Spent all my savings and Christmas holidays getting the parts and stuff ready for my good mate Simon to put the motor in and wire it all up for me. Simon has been drifting for close to 9 years and is very experienced mechanical wise, Thx Simon

We didn’t change any suspension parts or anything, I couldn’t wait to test it out.
And sure enough it was everything and more then I was expecting 😀 was insane
I took the car down to the guys at Turbo Tune and the Speed Lab, Had Jeff and the guys check the car over and had a quick tune up. Made a solid 210rwkw with a sh*t load more torque then the CA ever made 😀
