I attended the recent Japanese Cars Meeting 2016, which has now turned into the premier JDM meeting in Italy, and I was incredibly impressed how popular and contemporary the Italian JDM scene is considering the majority of the country is more interested in European and domestic cars. Over 700 cars dropped by over the meeting with Honda being the most popular by far; there were plenty of tuned SR20s, 13Bs, B16/18s and K20s and even a few lightly tuned RB26s which are going to be very similar to most other builds, but this particular car stood out thanks to its exquisite turbo choice.
Its not a hugely powerful setup, developing just over 400hp, but the top mounted twin-scroll Borg Warner turbo must provide incredible torque and superb response. The top feed injectors were also a not so commonly seen change, where the owner decided to run Evo 560cc injectors, who happens to be Federico Sceriffo’s builder.
Would have loved to hear and experience it.
