After its completion it was sent to Japan in 1991. The motor, 956 358, was sent on separately as it cost considerably less with regards to customs duty for importation. This was and still is a common practice. Motor 956 358 was a new turbo 3.2 liter 962 motor in latest and last Porsche factory specification. 962-170 was used by the Trust team for testing only and has very few hours of track time.
