MotoIQ.com’s Turbosmart-equipped Project 240SX Land Speed Racer (LSR), driven by Chuck Johnson, has secured its second land speed record of the year –  this time on the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats.  Facing adversity from seemingly every direction, Team MotoIQ managed to overcome a mixture of freak mechanical and electrical issues to qualify for a land speed record with an initial pass of 182 MPH against an existing 167.5 MPH record.

After being impounded overnight Team MotoIQ  and Chuck Johnson managed to back up their record run the next morning and set a new H/PS land speed record at 178.9 MPH.  The H/PS class is for non-engine swapped vehicles with a forced induction engine of 1.0-1.5L and a predominately stock body, void of aerodynamic modifications.

MotoIQ Project 240SX LSR features an SR20 engine, which has been de-stroked to 1.5L liters and uses a Nissan VVL cylinder head with variable valve lift.  Dubbed the SR15VET 20V, the engine’s boost comes via a Full Race Motorsports/Borg Warner EFR turbo system with two Hyper-Gates and a Kompact BOV.
