When Jesse started with Power Curve Performance he and The Red Dragon knew in the back of their mind she would be modified. When you see the dyno rollers push out happy results for customers and you have a turbo sitting in your cupboard you have always just wanted to use the modification bug is catching.
Who is Jesse and The Red Dragon
Jesse came on board with the Power Curve Performance team earlier this year. Jesse has a reputation as one of the best mechanics Nambour has to offer. His interest in 4×4 and suspension and his professional manner make him a perfect match for the team. Jesse has not done a load of performance work in the past however he is a quick learner and is now assisting with engine conversions and upgrades as a key part of our team.
The Red Dragon is a credit to Jesse and there are not many on the sunshine coast who do not know the car. Jesses car reflects his work ethic. It is a clean tidy TB45 that has had most thing suspension installed to it bar the new soon to be released Superior Engineering 5 Link!
The Red Dragon Modification Project.
Jesse everyday drive car is his TB45 Nissan Patrol and modifying his engine in the workshop is a little hard to disguise inability to get to work due to not having a car. Jesse decided to purchase a second TB45 and turbo the engine. Smart thinking on Jesses behalf, being his first solo build and in the nature of modifying, if anything goes wrong he has a proven running engine.

The Red Dragon Results
282.4 max horsepower had Jesse happy as a pig in mud the weekend after he finished the build. A four day weekend up the beach as the host for his mates bucks party. The Red Dragon was full of guys ready for the last free weekend of the bucks life. The Red Dragon made Jesse proud towing a dead parado up the beach and to the resort.
Equally as proud of the build is the Power Curve Performance team. Jesse did this job wholely and solely by himself. With Patrick assisting with a tune and minimum advice and support where needed Jesse has proven to himself that performance is where he belongs. Well done Jesse welcome onboard!
