JAP-808 into the tens

Marcos’ Mazda at Calder Park, the wagon had run a best quarter mile time of 11.1 thanks to a turbocharged 13B rotary import engine.

Since then Marcos has upgraded the 13B to a later model and more durable S6 spec engine rebuilt by Promaz. Still using the same Garrett turbo and on pump unleaded, a slight boost increase has seen the extend port engine generate 400hp to the wheels.
