The First Look Inside The Car Adam Saruwatari Hopes Take Him Into The 6s

Import in the late ’90s is almost with the name Adam His stock-chassis RX-7 heralded the of the sport into the professional But by the end of the decade, what he was so much a of building began to pass him by. And in a of nanosecond attention spans, the was old news.

Whispers of What’s on with Adam? spread the pits. These were replaced with rumors of a NSX, putting out over hp at the crank. And now, after a cold winter, Adam is with a full race-spec NSX. With technical Gary Hansen, John and Roger Hendrix behind he hopes this is the machine take him into the big time.

We with Adam, Gary, and about the car that will import drag racing, yet

The Engine

Adam Saruwatari: got two variations I’m working and developing right now. The variation is the 3.0-liter original NSX that is what came in the generation NSX motor. The 3.0L has iron-sleeved and it’s running 8.0:1 Wiseco pistons. And AEM has super light, heavy-duty

You know, the factory rods are but due to the increased size and strength of the 3.0L motor that building, it’s no longer a rod. It’s far stronger. The is being done by Alan

Alan Johnson is the owner and of the Winston Top Fuel team.

The motor will be a 3.2L The 3.0L motor is an aluminum you can hone it out and use a steel sleeve in it. The block is the same configuration, but uses a different technology makes it stronger. It is still a block, but the cylinder walls are an aluminum silicone metal

So, that’s a 20-percent stronger in the same configuration. The difficulty the silicone metal matrix is you can’t bore it out and sleeve it.

The is basically a test motor. The motor is the true race Alan is going to get more in the head porting on the 3.2L Eibach has developed valvesprings for us.

We varied tremendously from the stock-block, we’re just to reinforce it and strengthen it-even the will be Honda camshafts.

Hendrix: The intake manifold is a manifold because we didn’t a hoodscoop on the car. We wanted to the stock profile. We had to make a low profile and still get enough in there, so it’s all completely with all the fuel rails.

The body is completely custom. a one-off piece for sure. It was a job to get it tucked down under the and above the motor.

The NSX is not a front engine car, so the engine goes in the front not much room.

The cylinder is made of an aluminum silicone matrix, then, of course, the have to be coated to run in there. So, experimenting right now on the final We’re not sure what we’ll be using in the completed

Adam: The motor will be a dry-sump system. The exhaust are what DC Sports built to Conciald’s specs. Between a dry-sump system, to get extra on the bottom, and the custom intake how we’re able to get the motor in without actually having to a hoodscoop to accommodate the extra

Gary: Well, it’s an SFI spec car, as far as SFI certification, based around a Pro Stock-type Wheelbase is 109 inches. It’s got electric shocks in the rear.

It’s got Lamb struts in the It’s got Lexan all the way through the of course. It’s got carbon-fiber panels. We had a body made off a NSX and we stretched it and moved it.

We had stretched it in the We had to do a lot of stretching to accommodate the tire.

were making it safe and the 25-1C so it can go faster than because he plans on hitting low 7s and 6s. That’s why it’s based a Pro Stock-type chassis. As far as dimensions and of metal, we’ve moved the back quite a ways to get the rear weight, if we wanted.

And we want to be able to put weight up We’ve got weight tabs in a few areas, just to be able to weight around to get the percentages and the right as far as going down the correctly.

Adam: The car is going to weigh in at pounds with me in it. With the it’ll probably come in at 2,100. As far as components, Hansen Cars tried to get as much that’s been proven by cars that are going fast. It’s running struts front and back, got carbon-fiber brakes in the rear, bell housing.

It’s got a G-Force transmission, magnesium titanium shifter. It’s the same layout that’s proven by Warren Johnson. We run a rear housing, Mark third member, titanium titanium spool, gun-drilled

And the body is 100-percent carbon

The interior was kind of an interesting because traditionally built-to-spec cars run aluminum tin work. So, worked with me to use a combination of fiber and aluminum. Gary went so far as to replicate the NSX dash out of fiber.

The wheels are custom-made by Enkei. spun aluminum barrel, the are billet aluminum, and they’re together by titanium bolts. Of Nitto is developing its own specific for the car.

We hope to begin at the end of January or the beginning of February.
