When we last wrote about Christian J√¶ger’s Nissan R33 drift car it still needed some work and final testing before it could see the track. Since then they corrected all the bugs in their twin-turbo Mercedes M120.980 V12 and put it on the dyno. The engine produced 543 horsepower and 562 lb-ft (762 Nm) of torque on 4.8 psi (0.3 bar) of boost. Christian still plans on raising the rev limiter and installing a water-methanol injection system. The drivetrain consists of a Nissan R32 dogbox transmission and R33 GTS-t rear end.
