Due to some shotty craftsmanship on his single-turbo setup, Fukamoto chose another shop for his next series of upgrades. He went to Profile International in Brea, Calif., and spoke with owner Duy Le about the build. Le suggested a custom twin-turbo system that, if properly tuned, should come close to the 1,000hp threshold. Fukamoto gave the OK, and the engine was pulled. A pair of HKS GT3037s replaced the existing turbo. The fuel system was upgraded with a twin Bosch Racing fuel pump and 1,000cc injectors, again provided by SARD. A GReddy oil cooler, ARC oil pan, and Nismo Racing oil pump took care of the oil supply. To handle this much power, upgraded engine internals were in store. Darton sleeves, Crower Rods, and ARP rod bolts were selected along with a set of forged CP pistons with an 8.5:1 compression ratio. A port and polish job was performed and Nismo valves and valvesprings finished off the headwork. In order to put this power to the wheels, an OS Giken triple-plate clutch and flywheel were installed along with a Cusco, two-way limited-slip differential. A larger GReddy intercooler was added along with new Kuruma Z front bumper to provide more airflow.

Despite some misfiring problems, the car now produced a massive 854 rear wheel horsepower. After fixing the spark plug issues, another tuning session followed. The car hit the dyno once more and made a staggering 968 whp and 726 lb-ft of torque. The new setup earned him the coveted title of Hottest Performance Vehicle at this year’s HIN in Los Angeles.

So what does the future hold for Fukamoto and his G? With nearly 1,000 hp there is not much more to be done, so he’s moving onto his next project car: a ’08 BMW M5. Oh and did we mention he has a ’09 Nissan GTR on order? Too many projects, too little time. Must be nice.
