We have posted several articles (list at bottom of article) since Yoichi Imamura debuted his Nascar V8 powered Lexus LFA. If you don’t remember the LFA was totaled in a flood and turned into a drift race car powered by a 690 horsepower 5.8 L TRD Nascar V8. I just came across a post on Yoichi’s Facebook page showing the LFA testing the engine with a new turbocharger. Nascar engines run a pretty high compression ratio so it will be interesting how much power the turbo will add and what modifications they had to make to run one.
