Nitro Crew Featured Car, July 2008 - Nitro Crew Turbo’d Conquest 160 iRS




  • Purchased in 2001 as a stock 160 IRS, Devlin gave this little number some much needed TLC.
  • With an awesome re-spray and relatively few mods, she was used purely for pumping up the bass at a thumping 146.9 DBs
  • A year later, her 4AFE narrow head motor was supercharged
  • Devlin’s voracious appetite for speed was yet to be satisfied
  • He replaced the setup with an MR2 motor and its blower was replaced by a turbo\
  • After 3 different blown engines, 3 turbo setups, melted pistons, snapped exhaust camshafts, 2 broken turbos and 2 broken gearboxes

            he finally perfected it at JMS Motorsport

  • With body work customized by Premier Panel Beaters and a more recent re-spray at N & S Autoworks, this car is definitely a bombshell in its own right
