Hey Kev,
I just wanted to congratulate you on your Hako build, absolutely amazing car, build, and thread. Been in love with classic Japanese cars for about a year and half and you offer total inspiration! :) Hope to have a Hako one day!

So, Kev, you have had a Month to enjoy the Hako in it's current configuration, we know you have a Subaru Sti Differential and adapter parts waiting, along with a few other goodies waiting according to a few posts from 31GUN. The weekend is tomorrow, I'd say that 48+ should be long enough to install and make a write up for it, and maybe a few more goodies :wink:
Anyone else agree? you have to get the car more skid worthy seeing as 31GUN's R31 is about to get more power? amirite?
BTW when did you become a moderator? I have been away from this site enjoying other things.

Ah well, maybe I should look to see if 31GUN has any news. Doesn't matter for me though, I have been to busy drooling over some of my other intrests. Can still dream though. Anyway enjoy your Hako and driving it, I have to wait 6 months before I can sit my test :( .
ETA: I have got to stop bringing up firearms every chance I get.

Eh what!
Um, nothing for me just at the moment.
Got stuff to do though.
Going to do it too, not just leave it sitting around in cardboard boxes. (not so subtle nudge :roll: )

Most of my parts I get from Rubber-Soul. I've got some parts occasionally from Victory50, but Rubber-Soul always seems to have a bigger selection of stuff. Generally you'll find that all of the resto shops in Japan stock the same stuff...usually when runs of repro parts etc are made, they all band together, so there isn't any difference in the bits you get from any of the shops. Victory50 does do some custom stuff tho.

Mind you, neither of them ship overseas, so your best bet would be to contact someone in Japan to act as middleman, like say Jesse Streeter: http://www.jessestreeter.com/

If you need panels or rust repair sheetmetal, I'd contact Nakazoto (he's on the forum), he lives in Japan and his employer does panels. If you need factory parts which Rubber-Soul don't list, Adam from Feast Auto in Japan seem to have some luck sourcing stuff from Nissan Japan: http://www.feastautoexport.com

Great news, everyone!

The Hako will be on display at Eastern Creek on the weekend of the 9th and 10th of March, thanks to our good friends at Motor Magazine.

Motor Magazine will have a collection of cars at the Motoring Village section of the pits, and the plan is for the Hako and an R35 to be on display together. Come and say hello :)

For those who don't already know, the TG Festival looks like a great weekend of petrolhead fun, more details here: http://www.topgearfestivalsydney.com.au/ So for any JNCers plannint to be in Sydney that weekend, hope to see you there!

yo Kev, I've found an engine for you if you need some more horses.

http://www.speedhunters.com/2013/02/engine-porn-os-giken-tc24-b1z

I don't know what your finances are like so it may be a bit out of your reach, but still.


I'll hopefully be at the top gear festival too.

If I recall correctly...the estimate for a crate motor from those guys, is US$80,000 :D

small change.

Regardless, it's a hell of a motor. I don't think there are any other sixes you can get over 400hp out of n/a.

Very true. For a very basic production motor, the L6 has got heaps of power potential. A 911 flat six would struggle to put out the same power with heaps more capacity, and the OS-G motor takes it a step further.

IIRC Auto Service Watanabe got 392hp out of a regular L-series (but I think that might have been a very extreme drag motor). So if the OS-G motor is streetable, then that's quite an amazing achievement.

I've been informed that the BMW S54 can hit numbers like that, but that's a new engine and not a 30 year old donk.

To be fair, I bet that L is an absolute pig to drive on anything less than 7000rpm and full throttle.
Still, they make a hell of a sound at WOT.

I suppose...in theory...the OS-G with its 4 valve head could flow better at low rpm, compared to a L-series head with drainpipe size porting. And hence the OS-G would be more streetable than an L6 modified to make similar power.

But yeah, I don't think anyone buys the TC24 to just potter around on the shopping run :D
