Nothing too special about the engine. +1.5mm pistons, rods, ARP-all-the-bolts, ATI damper, oversizes valves, stiffer valve springs, Toda cams. Revs to 8300.

This 1.6 NB makes 110hp at the crank.

Have you taken it to the drag strip at all? I think that car would be a hell of a fun time on the street but a nightmare for track or autocross use.

Guys, this is a drag racing car, and yes, it has been at drag strips multiple times.

Care to share the slip? I'd love to see what your MPH trap and 60ft time is. From the drivetrain it looks like you can really let it rip out of the hole.

Because impressive technical achievement

The amount of work that went into this car could have been done on any engine, v8, 1.8, 4g63, FE3 etc. they just picked the 1.6.

This car some times I run it in public road for street races and if it is put into a larger engine or swap engine the rules here are very hard and the fine was very big for this or police take the car sometimes

If you can get that 60ft time down that car will post a very impressive time. Your trap speed is good for low 11s and possibly high 10s. That is a very fast car. Awesome work man, hope to see you pull a 10 second pass.
