R33

Nineteen-year-old Matt Meyrick has really had a rough time with his R33 build. It was broken into, and by the looks of the photos Matt sent us, Dirty Mike and the boys had one of their parties in there (if you’ve seen The Other Guys, you’ll know what that means). But it hasn’t put Matt off, and he’s now carrying out stage two of the build with a solid 447kW (600hp) as the goal. The RB25DET is currently making 239kW at 15psi with a Garrett T04E, but the new engine build will see Wiseco pistons and rods, bigger injectors, a front-facing plenum, a fuel rail, a bigger throttle body, and a healthy amount of boost, all of which should hopefully reach the 447kW goal.
