Another project we have going on over here at Akuma, a 2012 GTR.

This GTR is going to be no joke! Has our Stage 2 turbos, Full turbo back exhaust, injectors, fuel pumps, upper and lower IC piping the list goes on. The customer went the extra mile to be unique, we pulled a lot of the interior out of the car, so that he could have it custom upholstered in suede, and some carbon bits also. Also a set of really nice limited edition Recaro ASM's (autobacs) replaced the factory seats. All the IC piping, the intake manifold, Brembos and brake hubs were powder coated candy red.

Some more updates over here at Akuma,

We have yet another project GTR......

This GTR is coming in factory stock, the owner wanted to wait for warranty to expire before going into the world of modifications. Well he is definitely jumping right in. This GTR is getting the works,Akuma Stage 1 turbos, injectors, fuel pumps, Akuma full turbo back exhaust, Akuma big MAF intakes, 800 HP SSP clutch packs, the list goes on. The owner is going to be in for one hell of a surprise when he gets his car back



Another zero to hero project that is getting wrapped up now, is this customers 08 STI. This car came in as a stage 2 STI with a blown motor. We played doctor, and now residing between the frame rails is a Cosworth short block, stock heads cleaned up by Headgames, a Perrin GT35R turbo kit, Perrin FMIC, and supporting mods. This guy is also in for the ride of his life going from a stage 2 car to a built 35R car.





Another Suby build, car came in already built, AMS 35R turbo kit, AMS FMIC, Fuel system, etc, unfortunately, it had a bad leak down result, so out came the motor, and we will be fixing his problem, and then on the dyno she goes.

Forgot to mention, this STI only has 15000 original miles





custom flake paint, looks frosted in person



Today, we are doing a full race alignment and corner balance on this prestine EVO IX MR. This car is immaculate, very clean, very simple.





Also today we will be swapping out fuel injectors for bigger ones on this customers 03 wrx with hybrid motor. Full hawkeye conversion

Here's some eye candy

Adam@Akuma


There's a local guy here in Wichita running that same setup.
He's pushing 700 HP!

If you're referring to John, he is still here. He's the owner of Akuma.
