engine looks stock tbh, doesnt look like he put a bigger turbo on it or anything, and still has stock intake. suspension and brakes are from "xyz auto parts" which looks like they use the same taiwanese company as ksport/megan racing to make them, with different colors. nothing special there tbh

Love the Supra in the video...thats what 1000HP looks like on a race track...one of the fastest cars in this open class is a Porsche 944 with an LS1 engine...I built one and sold it a few years ago...

Im going to build another one and keep it...I know a little off topic :)

A Swede that doesn't speak English??? :confused: Scandinavia is one of those not-English-as-a-first-language parts of the world where almost everyone speaks it...

it was a road legal track car so things were kept pretty mild. at this point the whole car is stripped and getting a complete rebuild with different engine, suspension, brakes, and other race goodies.

for example his new pedal setup he will be using.....

true, but who in the US has built a 9-5 for a race car? its always 9-3's or 900's. its the first 9-5 i've seen built for track use. i think thats what peaked my interest in his build.
