This will be a very exciting journey & the beating heart of what is shaping up to be a very special bayside R34
My previous posts on the “upgrades” in fitting the entire (excluding engine but this will become obvious as to why ) nismo catalogue to the blue R34 continue in the background but this has been planned as soon as the car was purchased & shipped from japan in dec 2020.
When you think “fast response “ RB” one tuner springs to mind … Mine’s
After multiple discussions, advice, note comparing (& ultimately agreement on the project ) with both Niikura-san ( president ) & (Engine builder ) Nakayama -san, I am pleased to say that it’s been agreed that Mines will build an RB based upon the R34 demo car blueprint…but with some tweaks to incorporate some new upgrades such as air flow meters from the R35 & some new offerings which were just released in 2020. This is not a standard Mines 2.8 build and as such costs are appropriately aligned to the outcome.
I am unable to go into final specification, or cost however when you view the mines page there are some parts in Japanese which do not appear in the translated English section (explaining the process & a little more in-depth details )
This was taken one step (possibly 2) further to provide the ultimate as to what Mines could build.
From the outset the mindset of Mine’s in terms of reliability , longevity & ultimate response will be delivered through this engine and Controlled via a Mines ecu. The dedication in ensuring customer quality & service I have been very impressed with.
Everything will be new, from the wiring to the block & head from heritage scheme at omori, combined with the latest HKS 2.8 high response kit debuted (crank , piston , rods etc ) at the virtual auto salon in January
Final engine will be a “drop in” so to be be boxed up, tested & delivered & shipped from Yokosuka to the U.K. for the lucky owner to provide ultimate JDM smiles from its iconic cackle painted RB goodness
Super happy for the owner & combined with the already huge list of nismo pieces will make for an incredible R34
If the famous Hot Version video stated from Orido & Tsuchiya stating “hayasugi” ( too fast !) is any indication to go from. This RB build is in safe hands
Final thank you to Mine’s & other close friends involved locally in Japan in making this happen. The owner is thrilled to be embarking on this journey
