Swap Insanity: Brody Goble’s Insane LS2-powered Pro-Am Drift Machine

Image Source: Brody Goble

The work of art you are looking at is Brody Goble’s fresh Nissan 240SX Pro-AM drift machine, and yes, it has a beefy LS2 underneath the Seibon carbon fiber hood.

Goble is no newbie to the motorsports world and has the resume to prove it – from karting, to testing Global Rallycross cars, to racing in SCCA events, he’s done it all. 2008 was the year that Goble started to get his feet wet in actual drift events, and from there, it was all downhill – in a good way, that is.

The first thing we noticed about Goble’s car is that it’s wide. Thanks to Tra Kyoto’s Rocket Bunny widebody kit, Goble can fit the girthy wheel and tire setup he needs to get the perfect balance of grip and loss of traction, all at the same time. The wheels are lightweight Enkei RPF-1 measuring 18×9.5 +15 with 245/40/18 Achilles 123S tires in the front and 18×10.5 +15 with 265/40/18 Achilles 123S tires in the rear.

At the heart of Goble’s beast is a 512 horsepower LS2 engine, which is anything but stock. The engine is comprised of a GM Performance LS2 block, complete Eagle stroker 408 cubic inch rotating assembly, CNC-machined L92 heads with COMP components, FAST LSX-R Plenum and 102mm throttle body, FAST fuel rails, and stainless braided lines with AN fittings throughout the engine, amongst other goodies – way too much to name off!

Virtually every component on this car has been replaced and the craftsmanship and cleanliness of the build is insane for a car that’s going to be tossed around the track multiple times – we can’t wait for more video of this thing. For a full spec sheet, check out Goble’s website, but for now, enjoy a couple videos of the car on the dyno, as well as some other videos of the car on his YouTube channel.

We’ll just leave this here…
