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.
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.
Currently the car is taken apart, and it’s future a bit ambiguous.

Was a tough decision but I decided to move on from this car. It wasn't getting to where I wanted it and after doing the front end the way I did it was very hard to get the metal how I wanted it to look. I've always had street cars and after all this work it just wasnt streetable for me. I miss just going for a cruise…. The things this this car has taught me are priceless so it wasnt a wash. My next build will be even better.
