When the work was done, the car was hauled across the country to tune the HKS FCON VPro. Running pump gas, 93 Octane in New Jersey, the twin turbo mill pumped out a respectable 559whp with 540lb-ft of torque. Not bad… but Beckford isn’t stopping there either and says by the time of publishing they should be nearing 1,000whp on race gas. The triple plate RPS clutch is ready for far more too, since it is custom built for this application. All of the power is channeled though a Cusco 1.5-way LSD to keep the back end in check.

Since Beckford actually drives this thing through the mean streets and traffic of NYC, he decided to include all of the creature comforts. He scooped a set of Sparco Milano recliners and fastened up a harness bar for the Sparco belts. The clunky factory wheel was pulled in favor of a Nardi deep dish suede wheel. The audio system got a shot in the arm thanks to an Alpine LCD flip and navigation unit. The signals are fed to an MTX 4-channel amp and MTX components found inside the car. To drive the bass lines, an MTX mono amp drives a pair of MTX 12-inch Thunder subs mounted into the pair of suede enclosures found on either side of the trunk. Two of the video inputs come from front view and rearview cameras.

Now when it comes to celebrity car projects, they usually involve freebie parts and products, annoying PR people with hidden agendas and stars who don’t know jack about the tuner scene. That’s why you won’t find those lame bolt-on features here in our magazine.

Take it from us, Mr. Beckford is a legit tuner and very hands on with his rides. He certainly has a lot of toys in his garage and is a true enthusiast who knows, buys and selects his own aftermarket parts. “My accountant told me to finish up this costly project by the end of the year and think about selling it,” Tyson laughs. “After hearing that, I’m not sure how to tell him I went out and bought a new Nissan GT-R which I plan to do some really crazy stuff to… I’m looking to put together a JDM-style R35 that is daily-driven, but cranks around 600whp on pump gas.”

From what we have seen in Tyson’s collection, we’re sure the R35 is going to be off the hook. Beckford says it is all going to be rare JDM parts and not like anything else out there. By staying tuned to PAS Magazine, you’ll be the first to see it in action!
