Their 3.2L stroker kit for the RB26 is US$18k alone: http://www.osgiken.co.jp/pro_spec/rb30kit.html

And I would figure that they would sell a lot more RB kits than they would for L-series, so there wouldn't be the same economies of scale....then add the TC24 head, then the prepped block, then the labour for blueprinting it all...

It all adds up, but for the big dollar builds where nothin but the best will do, what else is there :)?

A full race engine, making 400 naturally aspirated horsepower from 3.2L in a 50 year old block, built with top-name and period-correct parts? Plus guaranteed single-figures exclusivity? Sounds a very reasonable price to me.

I like it! If I had $100K burning a hole in my pocket, or a use it or loose it (and I already had all the toys that I wanted) I'd be dumb enough to spend the $ on it. I'd then go out and build a Z or a Skyline that was equally outrageous 8)

No, not since the last instalment.

But I got some special axles coming from Beta Motorsport, and an LSD too. So when all the parts arrive I'll do an update for the LSD install and resultant skids.

I'm looking around, under the couch, on top of the fridge, in the second drawer down.
But I can't find an update anywhere.

Update? Oh well, if you insist :lol:

Actually it's been a reasonably eventful past few weeks for the Hako. At the end of May was the Lancer Evolution Nationals, which was a really cool event that was part car show, part trackday and held at Eastern Creek Raceway The event was sponsored by Yokohama Advan, and here's the official vid.

http://youtu.be/_rDXw2ZrSn0

These are pics taken by my friends btw, I can't take pics like this :)
Image

Image

Image

The pit area was filled with cool cars, that made for a pretty spiffy car show
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

So you had your choice of wandering the pits, taking it all in, or going to one of the many vantage points to check out the action on the track and skidpan
Image

Image

Image

The Hako managed to win the Mothers prize for Best Overall Car, Runner-up which I was pretty stoked about.

Then last weekend there was a dyno day with the Nissan Sports Car Club, and the Hako pulled 148rwkw (or 198rwhp).
Image

The last time Hako was on the dyno, the result was 189rwhp, and that was before the new exhaust system and the MSD6A. The last two mods seem to be worth about 10rwhp, which is about how it feels. Aussie dynos work off 30% transmission loss, so that's pretty much a nice, even 280hp at the crank. That, as Rolls Royce used to say, is "adequate" :)

But there'll be more updates soon! This arrived yesterday, it's a Subaru Sti 2-way LSD with a 4.4:1 final drive, and we'll be showing you how to put one of these in there *points at Hako* Skids (and hilarity) will no doubt ensue
Image

And the latest batch of parts from http://www.rubber-soul.net should be arriving any day now, so check back soon for more updates :)

I am also unacquainted with this concept. What is this "driving" you speak of? :lol:

Looks fantastic, as always. Eagerly awaiting pics/vids of the aforementioned skids 8)

Congratulations on the award! Car show trophies are always nice, it's cool when your car is recognized as being sorted, whilst surrounded by other, similar vehicles. :lol:
