Trevor Couture doesn’t like to do things the easy way. In 2014 he first finished his Volkswagen VR6 swapped 96 Nissan S14. Then about a year later he tore it apart to redo it.
Since then it’s been in a bit of a state of flux, being rebuilt and torn apart as he chases his version of perfection.
In it’s mechanical prime, the car made over 700 horsepower at 28psi.
For all the people saying my sheet is sketchy cause it says kensstang as the user name. Here is a video of my 699.98whp pull. Final number of the 703whp but had to stop due to a leaky head gasket :). Was going to do more runs but we shut it down so we didnt do any damage to the engine.#stockbottomend #boostittlitblowsThanks to my gf for the video and Derkzen Motorsports for the dyno pulls.

Supporting that power was a motor that had a Schimmel Performance head, 268 turbo camshaft, 90mm throttle body and 1700 cc injectors. The pistons and rods however were stock Volkswagen components.

The transmission consisted of a six speed, Nissan 350z transmission fit with a PTT triple plate clutch and custom flywheel.
This was bolted to the VR6 motor via a SEO motorsports adapter.
