While a ton of people have talked and dreamt of it, only a very few have tried…  Building a replica of the Devil Z from Wangan Midnight.  Although none of these are near the 3.1 liter L28 with twin turbos fed by triple carburetors, they deserve repect in their own right.

Gorgeous.  Beautiful fabrication work on the manifolds and just a clean setup!  Claimed to be no noticeable lag with this set up.

This here is engineering madness.  A L28 bored out to 3.1 liters.  Then the owner chopped up 3 KA heads and combined them to create a dual cam, 24 valve design.  A home-brewed head that could rival OS Giken’s TC24.  Then of course, two turbochargers were slapped on.  Insane!

I LOVE this picture.  I’m pretty sure this photoshoot was from the Wangan Midnight live action movie.  Just imagine locking yourself in a warehouse with tons of parts and a gorgeous car for the day.  Those Watanabes sitting in the pile look craaaaazy.

And what the motor bay of a real Devil Z would look like.  OS Giken TC24 DOHC set up with twins.  Probably $40+ grand in overnight parts from Japan.
