Thailand is home to a very unique “tuner” scene, with an endless supply of JDM engines and parts available every swap you can imagine happens  in this great land. 2jz powered big body VIP Benz and Bimmers, 1uz American muscle cars, SR20det Miata’s to name just a few.

A dream land with secret hidden circuits tucked away in the mountains that can be privately rented out for the for less than $100 usd per day. This is a great place to be if you have a car and want to get some cheap seat time.

I quickly realized that if I am going to be living here for more than 6 months dealing with parts, builds, engines and tuning projects for customers I’m going to have to build my own car, there is simply no way around it! I rather quickly found myself scouting for a clean BMW E30 chassis, something simple, light weight, RWD and a bit classy. With such a small car the SR20DET was the obvious engine choice, readily available and easily able to put out 400-500 whp which will be more than enough for this 2200 lb go cart.

Deep dish steering wheel and BC Sports Coilovers 

Parts from America are also on the way, hopefully they make it through customs MUCH faster than the control arms.
Speed density conversion
E34 complete subframe 
Rear Coilover coversion
Bosch 044 fuel pump
Copper core NGK BKR7e’s
AEM smart coil (anti lag)
ID 1000cc injectors and AEM smart coil modeling before they find their new home on the SR
 This will be a  basic 400 torque 400 whp set up all said and done, in a 2200 lb car it’s gonna be a good time. I will be using E85 on the street and VE race Fuel for track days or "special" nights.

Early test fitment, still need to remove a good amount or rear bumper to get things working properly.
