NZ Performance Car 252, December 2017

 All bout that boost

Wind up that PSI as NZ Performance Car 252 is all about boost, that instant party starter that’s sure to put a smile on any dial the moment it kicks in. Spearheading our big boost issue is Mad Mike Whiddett’s BADBUL RX-8, back on the cover after eight years of globetrotting, now badder than ever before. Following on with the boost brigade is Duncan’s 350kW Subaru Legacy RS, a boosted M20B25 BMW E30, and a Volvo 242 that runs 10s.

Internationally we bring you coverage of all the wall taps and door banging at Kansai Allstars in Japan, and a showcase from one of the world’s biggest gatherings of Jap tin at the 13th annual JCCS in Long Beach California. For those that like to get their hands dirty, our DIY surge tank build should be right up your alley. But of course this is only a taste of what you’ll find inside NZPC 252 - the boost issue.
