Singing Loudly | Don Omar’s Race Car!
October 14, 2020
The performing arts world met the high-performance world on FuelTech USA’s hub dyno when Don Omar’s Toyota Celica spun the drums to 1,740hp! The world-renowned entertainer is also a drag racer and he competes in the Extreme Import category with an R2B2-constructed Pro Modified style Celica. A 2JZ six-cylinder engine powers the Celica and it is a combination the team is well versed in running on the quarter-mile. Previous 2JZ setups have pushed the team’s racecar to low 6-second runs at well over 200 mph and they are expecting to run even quicker with this Celica.
The Celica features a FuelTech FT600 engine management system to keep all engine tuning, power management, and data logging in one ECU. The FT600 engine management system comes with sequential injection and ignition, O2 closed loop, Data Logger, Delay Box, Boost Controller, Nitrous Controller, and much more. The ECU box doubles up as an LCD display and touchscreen showing real-time data and allowing the user to make adjustments without a PC connection. Each PowerFT ECU also includes data logging capabilities, making the FT600 and its sibling products a true all-in-one unit.
In addition to the FT600 engine management system the 2JZ relies on an FTPSARK-4 and a full set of FuelTech CDI coils. The FTSPARK-4 is capable of producing 750mJ of energy at 140 amps, which means it can provide spark for applications up to 5,000hp!
The quickest and fastest Sport Compact machines rely on FuelTech, including legendary singer and actor Don Omar.
