Hytech Engines builds an RB26 engine that produces 534kw at the wheels in a Nissan R34 GTR! The magazine spills the beans about our new 10 second Mitsi Evo and coverage of our cars at Import All-Stars and Night Speed Drag Wars. Buy the latest issue and enjoy :)

This Evo I-III 4G63 engine was built for another tuning shop in Auckland. Fully balanced with forged internals and a very nice aftermarket crankshaft. Should make really nice power. It's the last 4G63 engine built for 2009 and it's been collected by the customer who is happy he got it before xmas. No more engines in our workshop, a great way to be before xmas.

Customer only wanted the bottom end of his RB26 refreshed as he was selling his car. We stripped and cleaned the bottom end, polished the crankshaft journals, painted the block and fitted new rings and bearings. All back together and delivered to another workshop who will put it back in the GTR. There are now no more RB26 engines in our workshop, just how we like it before xmas.

The 3rd and final round of the series saw a big turn out of competitors with several quick cars putting on a show. The boss didn't win his class on the night but didn't well enough to collect enough points to take out the Turbo 4WD class for the season. He received a trophy, prize money and a season pass to Fram Autolight Dragway. Well Done !!!

The day was long and very hot. We had a few little issues throughout the day which meant the car wasn't performing as it should. We managed to achieve a new personal best time in the car with a 10.65 at 215kph. This in only 0.13 seconds quicker in ET, but the top speed is up 21kph! This means there are lower ET's to be had in the car. The car ran the new PB time sticking with the 20psi boost pressure. In the semi-final of the Pro Import class we decided to up the boost pressure to 25psi because we were up against a very quick (and eventual class winner) mitsi evo powered mirage. This turned out to be something the drivetrain didn't agree with, resulting in the evo breaking a front axle when launching off the line.
