Project Nissan 300ZXTT: Part One

By Mike Kojima

I have more cars than I can store easily on my property or the motoIQ headquarters. It’s also a well known fact that most of them don’t run at any particular time because, I only have so much bandwidth and more importantly money to work on numerous projects. The fact that our house is in a pretty decent part of the OC and looks like a rednecks doublewide pisses off my wife to no end. My neighbors probably don’t like me very much either.


 

Project Scion TC

Project Scion TC Racer: Part One

So when Scion was launched as the brand of Generation Y, after looking at the cars specs, I sighed a yawn seeing that they were probably designed for cool kids and those who emulate them that were more into clothes, hair product and music than cars or at least the performance part of it. I immediately dismissed the brand as something I was not interested in and never paid attention to it again.


 

Paintless Dent repair

motoIQ Tech Exclusive! Paintless Dent Repair

If you are into cars, it’s inevitable that your nice shiny new ride will accumulate its share of ugly and annoying dents and dings no matter how careful you are when parking.  Even the stored garage queen is not immune to this sort of damage.  Some of you have kids, some have crowded garages full of stuff that falls over.  Some of you have spouses or SO’s that think your obsession with cars is dumb and park the car any old where when you are not around.


 

Project Subaru STi: Part One 

In this project we are going to improve on the STi's strong point, acquiring more torque and power but still keeping it street and road race friendly.  A lot of attention will be given the cars weak points, handling and braking.  Project STi's goals will be to be able to keep its easy streetability while being able to rip the ¼mile in the 11's in drag racing while winning a Time Attack on a road course, opposing yet possible goals.


 

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.


 

370Z Automatic transmission shifter driveline

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 brakes

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.
