Project Mitsubishi EVO VIII: Getting Rid of the Bling to Give it Some Sting

From the second we first drove an EVO VI on loan from Mitsubishi 8 years ago, we have been in love with the EVO series of cars.  The small relatively light 4-Door sedan reminded us of another favorite car.  It was lot like a super tuned Turbo Sentra SE-R but with it's 4WD drivetrain, it could actually put the power to the ground at high boost.  Unfortunately the EVO was not available for sale in the USA. 


 

Epic Failures


Andy from Cosworth UK sent me a link to a thread on Scoobynet which is a UK Subaru forum. His email simply said, "omg-must-see-poor-workmanship. W T F ?" and a link to the thread. Normally Andy and I shoot the shit back and forth a bit about the happs with Subys in the UK or Time Attack stuff, but with the absence of the chit chat I knew this one had to be good. The Brits like to use the word "epic" so I titled this post in honor of my UK friends.

Project Nissan 200sx 1.6 GA16DE-Putting a potato under the hood

By Wes Dumalski

OK so the title is not literal... In our last installment we talked about our planned turbo and injector upgrades. In particular we chose to install the now infamous GT28RS aka the Disco Potato turbo! Let's not waste any time with small talk eh? Lets get down to what we did and how we did it.


 

Project Nissan 200SX 1.6 GA16DE-Containing the Power Wes Dumalski

Last we left off Project 200SX spun the rollers at 252 horsepower, at the time a new GA16 record, what we didn’t tell you was that part of the reason we stopped where we did was because we also found the limit of the clutch.

Nissan 370Z Drivetrain Tech

By Mike Kojima

The Nissan 370Z's drive train is state of the art with innovative features for both the automatic and manual versions of the transmission. These features should give the Nissan 370Z a significant performance edge over other cars in its price category.  The 370Z is available with a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission and a close-ratio but wide gearing range 7-speed automatic transmission.

Project Nissan S13 Silvia: The Great Bumper Fire of '04

"Dude! You’re on fire!"

Yea, yea, the car’s fast, but I just melted an intercooler hose or something, so this isn’t exactly the best time to talk. Nor is it really the place. I mean, everything was going great a second ago, but something just popped and now every time I hit the gas, I get this lazy "blaaaah" and the car just gets slower. We could chat about it, but we're over a blind hill, we're going 7 mph, and the track is still hot. Maybe we should catch up in the pits...


 

Nissan 370z on Dyno

We Dyno the Nissan 370Z (2 NEW Videos)!

By Mike Kojima

With Nissan claiming some awesome production power numbers for the 370Z, we decided to put the car through a dyno test to see if Nissan is able to back up their claims on actual production cars.  Our test mules are both sport model 370Zs, bone stock from the dealer with just a few hundred break in miles.

Nissan 370Z Brake Tech- Stop it Now!

By Mike Kojima

Speed in itself is not dangerous, very rapid deceleration is!  For this reason, brakes are the most important system of any high performance car. The Nissan 370Z does not disappoint in the braking department.
