Hi everyone,

Checked with the Mods and it’s all cool to post this project :thumbsup:

The Majority of you know the history of the Lemon from Japan to the UK so just like to share what’s going on with the car at the moment.

The project has been handed to Ron @ RK tuning to bring this legendary GTR back to its former glory.

All parts have been dropped to Rons and work should be starting very soon. I have asked him to take pictures throughout the build, as I’m not too far I’ll be popping over regularly to check up on its progress.

The engine is going in for a full overhaul; the shell is going to be dropped off to VicSell AutoBody just to tidy up the car.

Brief Spec

Displacement: 2.7l JUN prototype
Block: N1 24U
Pistons: Custom made forged pistons with thicker crowns
Crank: JUN Auto Billet Prototype Crank (specially made by JUN for the Lemon)
Connecting rods: JUN Auto I section
Oil system: DRY sump system, External oil pump, Dry sump oil tank
Head: Camshaft: Tomei (IN290°/EX290° with 11.50mm lift) Ported and polished head, Bronze valve guides, Tomei valve springs, Tomei buckets and retainers
Turbos: Newly overhauled Garret 3542 twin turbos! (Same spec as the European 4wd drag champion the GaiJin!)
Fuel system: 1200cc injectors, Jun fuel rail, 1500bhp+ capable Aeromotive pump, custom swirl pot, custom electric drain tank system (drains the tank with a flick of a switch)
Differentials: Cusco Carbon Diffs front and rear with Cusco larger diff covers
Drive train: OS 88 Giken 6 speed Sequential gearbox version 2 with Brand new Exedy triple plate
ECU: HKS Fcon Pro seperate maps for road/race fuel


Still in two minds what to do with the Interior leave it as it is (full street trim) or totally strip it with Carbon dash, proper roll cage, Stack dash...etc

Here’s a few pics/vids for those who are not familiar with the car, more updates to follow

Hello mate, where you been hiding!?

Yeah Shakespeare in the Drag R was interesting to say the least, learnt allot from it though so should be ready to attack the strip with the Lemon.

How much weight are you actually going to save by stripping the interior out? I think it takes away the whole original point of the car and takes away a massive part of a "street car". I say no and keep the interior.

They are the same wheels but **** had them re done in black, I think I remember him saying he wanted to change them back to yellow before we bought the car.

Personally I’m more inclined towards keeping the interior for that exact reason it was built to be a full weight street car :thumbsup:

didnt even realise m6beg had got rid, so no top speed salt runs then?
Nothing planned at the moment but would like to better the standing mile top speed of 203mph

Thanks Harry,

Just to clarify the situation

I highly respect both tuners (TR racing and RK tuning) and would be equally happy with either tuner building the lemon or any other car in the future.
