I Hope You’ve Been Saving Your Pennies!

I was browsing the JNC project Hako build thread and the age old discussion came up about the unicorn of all parts… the OS Giken TC-24 dual cam head. There was a lot of heresy stemming from last years SEMA show, when OS Giken had their crown jewel on display. Rumors of the head being remade and to be offered for $30,000 have been floating around since then. The rumors are true… and it gets even wilder.

Kev from JNC spoke to an Aussie OS-Giken distributer who confirmed that as of now, six heads cast in the 80’s have been set aside and all have been spoken for. One for a lucky Australian Z car nut, five slated to be delivered to U.S. enthusiasts, and a final head for OS Giken’s demo car. More heads are planned for casting with a current price tag of just under $42,000. OS Giken is also planning to sell a 3.2 liter crate motor complete with IRTBs and a header for a mind-boggling $90,000! 400HP at 11,000 RPMs? Yes please!

By the way, what’s the going rate for one’s kidney nowadays?

this would be my very dream engine.. sadly it costs twice the budged for the whole (quality) build of my car…

I don’t think one kidney would be enough, perhaps if we got together, sold some valuable body parts and had some sort of time-share agreement on the engine? lol.

Oh man….. I almost wish they still weren’t available so I wouldn’t even have to think about what I would do to come up with that kind of coin. Nice collection of pics btw.

do yous guys know if os giken makes these heads for the S20 engine??

Comment by ken nakajima

From what I’ve been reading/hearing (majority of it all being through the grapevine), is that they are going to be making them. If you have the means, I would say just bug your best JDM parts shop till they get sick of you. Then bug them more.
