|It’s been a few months since our latest update on the Nissan Navara-R, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t forgotten about you all.|
The truck has been out visiting SB Motorsport partners recently, so let’s give you an update with what’s been happening.
|To start off the new year, we delivered the truck to Mike and the guys at @WaltonMotorsport for fabrication of the @Vibrant_Perfomance full exhaust system, @GarrettMotion G30-660 Turbo install with the @TurboSmartHQ Wastegates. All a custom layout to make the engine bay look as insane as it can, whilst still being fully functional, keeping reliability in mind. |
The work these guys do is next level with all their manifold fabrication work, and with a short turnaround time it definitely made our lives at @SBMotorsport a little easier to get the truck to its next visit.
|We had an unexpected call from Jay at @WheelPros_Europe to let us know that our new ‘Fuel Beast’ @fueloffroad_wheels had been delivered, all the way from the USA! |
So Baggsy headed straight over to their warehouse to pick them up, ready to reveal on the next episode of our Mission CTRL: Nissan Navara-R livestream, which for 2021 is scheduled to be the last Wednesday of each month.
|The next venture for the truck was the guys at @ForgeMotorsport in Gloucester for all the Radiator, Intercooler, Oil & Fuel cooler fabrication. Custom designing where all the pipework would sit and creating an awesome finished product. Even the heat sink fins on the Radiator are a work of art! |
When we got the call saying they had finished within a few weeks, and us at SB seeing how awesome the engine bay looked, we were very pleased with the outcome! Alongside all the custom @SamcoSport silicone hoses mapped around the engine bay, this build is insane!
|The engine bay almost looked complete with the @Asnu_Fuel_Injection inlet manifold and the @KNFiltersUK poking out the front of the truck.|
But this was now time to remove the #VR38 engine from under the bonnet, and for Paul at @PCheshire_AP to work his magic for the full strip-down and rebuild. With a few upgraded internal parts, and a professional dynamic balancing process by Steve at ‘Vibration Free’.
More exciting info on the engine build coming very soon!
|Let’s not forget that this build will have a figure of over 1000hp from the standard twin turbo Nissan GT-R V6 engine, a fully custom chassis using the original GT-R front and rear subframes and epic ST 3 way adjustable suspension.|
|AND all of this will be on the public roads! Thats right. A fire breathing, Nissan Navara with a widebody kit and 2-step will be breaking necks on the road this year, whether that be heading out to get the weekly food shop, grabbing a few D.I.Y bits from a hardware store or cruising to an automotive event.|
You will definitely notice this in your mirrors!
|Mission CTRL: Navara-R Livestream is back TOMORROW! |
Wednesday 31st March!
We’re rolling on the last Wednesday of the month in 2021.
So schedule us in, 7:30pm on the @BaggsyBoyUK
YouTube & Facebook page.
|Baggsy –“It’s already been a busy start to the year with the truck, visiting a few of our partners involved in the Navara-R build and getting closer to that completion date.”|
“I just cant wait to drive it!”
