Repowered with a Nissan Infinity 4.5 Litre Quad Cam V8 VH45 at 196,000Kms (Infinity motor had done 71,328Kms)

This conversion was done by Julius Performance (Graham and Brendan Julius) in Fredrickton Northern NSW at a complete price of $9475.

The Conversion took approx 4 weeks to complete ...has been in the vehicle now for 30,000Kms and is absolutely brilliant.

The Motor is a very willing little rev machine with a red line @ 6900 RPM. (now 7300 RPM with a Nismo chip)
Dyno figures show 245HP @ Rear Wheels with
an extremely flat Torque Curve developing around 90% at 2100 RPM (this is 95 Kph in 5th)

Driving this rig does give you a sore jaw though ... ... ... ...'cause you just can't stop grinning!
