Incase you hadn’t noticed,our friends at StreetFX Motorsports and Graphics have been blowing up the internet with their VR38 powered Toyota 86 built by GT Auto Garage. It’s one of the craziest builds out there and has been happening alongside our VR38 powered R34 GT-R, Erubisu, build. The Albins 6-Speed sequential and Direct Clutch Services clutch was designed for both cars together. The 86 is rear wheel drive though, but will be shooting for over 1000hp as well. We caught up with Mark Trueno to have a chat and a closer look.

If you aren’t interested in the build process, and just want to see the latest pics, scroll to the bottom! Otherwise, read on for the details.

Now you have probably all seen Rocket Bunny wide-body kits get bolted on to cars before, so we won’t bore you with too much of that, but we feel it’s important to give a little history, since this is one of the few in the world that have the fenders moulded on instead of bolted on like some kind of afterthought.

 

Here’s the mild girl when we started:

 

Now a couple of the obligatory “mid-rocket-bunny” pictures.

 

Fresh out of the paint booth at Cameron’s Bodyworks:

 

For the next year the car had the FA20, in various states of tune. From AVO turbo kit, to Forged performance Turbo kit, to the complicated twin-charge (turbocharged and supercharged) setup.

Plagued with issues ranging from Direct Injection failure to head gasket problems, the best power we made on the old 4-cylinder was 545rwhp on E85. Turning the boost up […]
