At 2.7L the Toyota 3RZ engine is certainly on the bigger side of 4-cylinders, fitting into Chris Tait's S14 200SX as a great conversion. Making around 1300hp, the 3RZ still retains the factory block and crank and spins upwards of 10,000rpm. Spooling a larger Borg Warner S500 88mm turbo @ 45psi Boost is made easier thanks to an 11:1 compression ratio running on methanol fuel while cooling is taken care of via a PWR liquid Intercooler and radiator. Fuel comes from 12 injectors governed by a MoTeC M800 computer. Sending power rearward is a 7in triple plate slider clutch and Liberty 5-speed gearbox. Jamboree 2012 saw the team chase a few gremlins throughout the weekend but the guys weren't not too far shy of their best time of 7.1-seconds.
Ben Bray Nissan Altima SR20 turbo
Delving deeper into the world of sport compact racing, Group 1 Doorslammer
pilot Ben Bray's new Nissan Altima certainly looks the goods. With only one
test session prior to Jamboree the guys were able to take out the final of
the Pro Compact class with a cracking 7.10/196mph pass from the SR20 power
plant. Upgrades include a billet engine block, VVL cylinder head, Garrett
GT47 turbo, MoTeC M800 computer, Siemens
injectors, Racepack V500 data acquisition and a Lenco gearbox.
The car has since run as quick as 6.94 at 197mph.

3RZ NISSAN 200SX - GOOD TIMES RACING TESTING NEW TURBO - TNT 14/12/2013
Chris Tait was out in his crazy Nissan 200sx powered by a Toyota 3rz motor.
The team were keen to test out a Garrett GT55 that was recently borrowed
through a friend. After a half track shake down pass to gather data,
unfortunately the weather got the better of Test n Tune and the meet was
cancelled. You can be sure he'll be back out ASAP to try again though.

Fry driving his Top Alcohol Monte Carlo funny car for the very first time.

rain interrupted a lot the day and not many passes were ran.
Turbo 3RZ-FE 4Runner - Test Drive with Turbo Kit
Quick test drive video as requested several times.
Note: At the end of the video, where the AFR and Boost gauges are shown, pay attention to the
AFR gauge when I go WOT in first gear. It stays in closed loop, but then
goes open loop as soon as it hits second. For everyone who knows
about/tunes these trucks, is this normal? I am concerned about it being so
lean for being in Boost under load
while in first gear. Any help would be appreciated.
