One girl's story being Mike Kojima's love slave

This story was originally published a few years ago (pre-digital SLR camera for most of us obviously…), but is a wonderful tale of the kind of guy Mike Kojima is so I wanted to share the story with our MotoIQ readers.  This is not a joke, but it was pretty funny!

Ask Sarah ITB VS Carbs VS Single Throttle body

Ask Sarah: What's Your Intake?

By Sarah Forst

Hi Sarah, 

I'm debating going carbs or ITB's with EFI.  What is the advantage to using carbs over EFI?  How do ITB's perform over a single TB?

Ask Sarah: Holiday Stocking Stuffers

Hi Sarah,
 

I saw your EVO project at SEMA 2010 this year- the white car with the KW suspension and carbon Seibon parts. I was just wondering who makes those fenders and also those sideskirts. I would appreciate your help on this as we would like to purchase them for our time attack car in Holland.

Ask Sarah: Is the Pressure Making You Hot?

By Sarah Forst

I am wondering about gauges and their importance; specifically, oil temperature versus oil pressure. If you had to choose between the two, which one would you pick? And does it matter for a street car versus track car?

Ask Sarah: I Need More Track Time From My Water Injection System!

By Sarah Forst

I have a 1996 Mazda Miata with a Jackson Racing MP45 supercharger and an ECU controlled Aquamist water/methanol injection system.  The water tank I use is about 3/4 gallon in size, so when I fill it up with straight windshield washer fluid (no additives, just water and methanol) I'm running the tank dry well before my 30 min. track session is complete.

Sarah Forst's Turbo Sentra

Sarah's Ride

By Annie Sam

If you have been a fan of  MotoIQ, you have probably been reading The Queen of Questions, Sarah Forst's tech column from day one. Our statistical tracking software has shown that Sarah's works are the most highly trafficked of all of our features.  So some of you are probably wondering, how did she get to know all of this stuff.  Well if you know Sarah, you understand that she is very thorough and loves to research things. She has a financial background and complicated analysis and number crunching are natural for her. She learned much about extreme tech from building up her own car many years ago, meeting some of the countries top Nissan tuners and becoming a master of tuning herself in the process.  Now Sarah has several cars in her arsenal ranging from a G20 winter beater to a G35 daily driver and a NX2000 track car but none are as interesting as her super Sentra.

Sarah Forst removing nuts

Ask Sarah, Problems with Nuts

By Sarah Forst 

Hi there,

I have a problem with my car and I'm too embarrassed to ask my friends. My problem is that I usually over-torque bolts/nuts on my car and I need your help. One of my strut tower nuts is over-torqued and when I tried to remove that nut, it started to round pretty bad. I even went to Sears to buy a socket set that removes rounded bolts/nuts but with no success. The nut looks pretty bad. What can I do? Thank you for any help.

AEM water injection system

Ask Sarah- Does water injection work?

By Sarah Forst

Hey Sarah,

I have a turbocharged 1995 Integra GS-R with a T3/T4.  I usually set the boost around 8-10psi but sometimes I get up to 14psi.  I still have a stock ignition.  Is this boost too high for 91 octane?  One of my friends said I should install a water injection system, but doesn’t that just kill power?  Can you recommend any water injection systems?

P.F.
