Formula Drift Rookie Nate Hamilton: Part 2

Nate_Hamilton_2013_nissan_s13_formula_drift_LS7

Made my second stop at Nate Hamilton’s shop and as you can see, the engine made it in and was being worked on during my visit. Nate is using a LS7/LS3 built by LG Motorsport – a bigger motor than what he ran last year. It’s basically a LS7 head with a LS3 block. LG Motorsport will tune the car as well. This year, Nate picked up Holley as a sponsor so will be using Holley throttle body, fuel rails, etc. More photos after the jump.

Moroso Breather Tank. Hoonigan Racing will design Nate’s livery for his S13 – He gave me a sneak peak of the wrap and it looks amazing! Wish I could show you guys but I’ve been sworn to secrecy.
