Danish Pro Drifter Christian Christensen and his OverBoost DriftTeam are building a new vehicle for the 2019 season. The project starts with a Nissan S14 which will be powered by a turbocharged 2.5 L VW (CBTA) inline-five. The engine is originally from a 2013 Beetle (North American model) and will be rebuilt with forged internals, turbocharger, and Ecumaster EMU Black ECU. The goal is to make 650-700 horsepower on 11.5:1 compression (9.3:1 stock) and Goat Fuels E109R ethanol race fuel. Power goes to the rear wheels through a G-Force G101A four-speed dogbox and Nissan 370Z differential and axles.

    “upgraded turbocharger”
    I don’t think that it’s possible to upgrade a turbo on something that doesn’t have one.
