Using a VK56 Nissan V8, which was originally an off-road truck engine, the guys at AHM Performance changed up some key aspects to turn it into a nitrous-injected Formula Drift engine for Chris Forsberg's NOS energy drink Nissan 370Z. Find out what went into the build.
Everything about building trophy truck engines is difficult. The courses are extremely rough, the racing is very intense and the demands on the engine are nothing short of punishing.

Find out how this top-level build comes together.
Workshop 5001 owner Marlon Goldberg will argue the air-cooled flat six Porsche motor is one of the best engines ever, and it’s a key element to making a 911 the great car that it is.
