WRX fans can rejoice, as this month we finally have an STi gracing the cover following a long hiatus for the brand. And what a car it is, built for both circuit and hill-climb weekend antics, the Type RA Limited features a custom wide body and about 360kW lurking under the hood.

We also look at Jase Brown’s OTT Silvia with a supercharged 1UZFE and Boss S14 front conversion, an ex–Pikes Peak 4WD FC RX-7, and a roof-chopped van from Japan.

We talk EFi vs carb, hang with some Honda heads, drool over D1NZ engine bays, and look under the skin of Brady’s RX-2 sedan. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Marcus Gibson has spent his life getting a little grease under his fingernails growing up with a fascination for all things loud, fast, and low. Growing up during the boom of the import scene, the last ten years have seen him work for a few publications, as well as running his own website before taking up a role at NZ Performance Car in 2011. Marcus is as at home with a keyboard or camera in-hand as he is getting dirty in his workshop or at the track, championing that Kiwi DIY attitude.
