Rick Bone goes SR20DET

July 9, 2011

Rick Bone, the man behind NZ’s fastest KB110 is upping the power with a SR20DET! Apparently the 250HP A15 wasn’t enough of an animal and aims for a conservative and reliable 300HP by the way of a dry sump setup, Tomei cams and springs, injectors, Eagle rods and JE pistons. Something tells me that it may be a bit overkill for just 300HP and more will come when it’s dialled in but we will see. Rick says the plan is to race in NZGT or GT2 depending on how fast it goes and will be starting with 300HP at the wheels with no weight restrictions. A little bit disappointed the A15 got the boot I asked if there were plans for it to go back in the future and Rick replied saying he hopes to return it back to it’s original form at some stage. I’m unsure what he has done with the rear end but I think the H165 that was in there before has remained, fingers crossed it hangs in there as I will be testing the durability of them soon enough too.  The car will be at Nisfest as well as on the track throughout the season if anyone wants to stop in to watch some new car hammering. Thanks to Rick and Nicky for the photos and I wait eagerly for it’s debut.

  2. […] you do. Having fought hard in SS2000 for years with his incredible 205 flywheel hp A15, he’s swapped to a SR20DET and pursued GTRNZ. After a few rounds, he then got pushed into GT2 when ran times below the minimum […]
