This unique fifth generation Toyota HiAce van really turned heads at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2018. The owner Ju Sung Oh had the factory inline-four replaced with a 3.8 L VR38DETT V6 from a Nissan R35. The owner states the engine makes around 500 horsepower but has plans to increase that to 800 horsepower in the future. If anyone knows more about this project please contact us or leave a comment. You can see more photos of the project on the owner’s Instagram.

        VR38DETT is a 3.8 liter V 6 cylinder twin turbo engine designed exclusively for the high-performance sports car “R35 GT-R” boasted by Japan. The initial model is 480 horsepower, and in the recent 2018 model, the output is increased to 570 horsepower (related article). In addition, while transferring the engine and exhaust system from GT – R, the transmission is surprised to correspond with the large remodeling cut and pasted Hi – A ‘s normal manual transmission (type G 55).
