Goleby's Parts 1JZ Ford Capri
After recently parting ways with our Yellow 1jz powered street ke36 corolla, (don't panic we have a bigger and better Ke38 1jz powered Corolla street van in the build) it was finally time for us to see what the true potential of the mighty 1JZ engine is.
We had purchased a ke26 corolla to build into similar specs over the next year but when our friend had his capri up for sale it was to hard to pass up with all the hard work done. With this being the first Radial car in Australia to go 1.10 to the 60 foot (and 6.9 at 200mph) and a Chassis and rear end by 6Boost even with 5000 hours we could never replicate it ourselves.
Thanks to the previous owner and all his knowledge the car is 100% setup for us to insert and test some of our Goleby's Parts JZ engine packages. stage 1 will be one of our 1200hp 1jz engines at around the 1000hp level to get us hopefully into the 7's without to many dramas, then after getting some R&D from the engine at that level it will be time to push it to the 1200hp mark.
Stay tuned as a lot of parts will be getting installed over the next few weeks. A lot of people will be thinking to themselves why a Capri? Goleby's Parts is all about Corollas? (they are still our favourite) but over 15 years ago we owned a 1JZ powered Te Cortina Built by one of our friends, and having owned lots of Escort's and Cortina's over the years this is not far from our heritage.
