Tomei User: Nick at Elite JDM

This years rookie at Formula D is Nick D’Alessio from Pennsylvania. He’ll be competing in this S13 Nisyota.   Nick is a member of The Drift Alliance and he’s taken some serious steps to prep his car for the 2012 Formula D season.   Nick has done an engine swap. He’s now got a Toyota 1JZ straight 6 engine in his S13 Silvia (240), and this is the Tomei ARMS M8280 1JZ bolt on turbo kit that powers it. Here it is installed on Nick’s engine. It’s good to see Nick going head to head with the V8 powered cars with a Toyota straight 6. These 1JZ engines are extremely popular in Japan for Drifters as they are bulletproof. you may have seen this car already on the Bloodmasters film. This is the new livery he has on the car. Nick and his team are already prepared from this weekends Formula Drift round at Long Beach. So you can watch him in action if you’re at the event. Good luck Nick!
