Glenn has been a customer for years. We built this car almost three years ago when we first came out with our standard ELITE Turbos. The previous build was stock crank, standard ELITE turbos with a twin pump 6 injector on Cobb. Glenn raced and enjoyed the car for years at both GT-R World Cup and TX2K. Like many of us, once we’ve been bit by the bug it’s tough to just settle for 1000whp
It was a tough back and forth for Glenn since his car was running so well. Part of him just wanted to upgrade the turbos and make a 100 more HP but part of him wanted to upgrade to a greater extent. After some soul searching Glenn decided it was go big or don’t do it at all. When I say go big I mean still in a reasonable build that I personally still consider the happy zone for these cars if you want to street drive them consistently, that is our ELITE build.
Our all new ELITE Prime turbos haven’t officially been released yet but they most certainly have been tested! The first run of them went on in house customer cars for us to be able to monitor and ensure everything was up to our standards on the all new design. Glenn decided his car was gonna be one of them.Glenn opted to push his build a little further by upgrading to our billet crank Race 3.8 with our proprietary wet sump oiling system, Motec, 12 injector setup with BL manifold, upgraded heads, Shep Stage4 trans, and all of the supporting mods.
We delivered the car directly to the GT-R World Cup for him which I personally love doing. Not only do you get to watch a customer enjoy their car right when you get done building it but it’s also very satisfying to watch the years of experience show itself right off the trailer! The car performed amazing and reliably, running bottom 8s the entire event. Glenn had never driven a car that fast and it for sure didn’t disappoint from the look of the smile on his face.
We are currently trying to convince him he needs to go to TX2K with us but he is on the fence, maybe we can persuade him together?
Thank you for being a loyal customer Glenn! Appreciate your friendship and looking forward to many years to come of tearing up events and beers together!
