M2K Motorsports 280 mph Ford GT

by Mike Kojima

The Ford GT was in our opinion America's first true exotic supercar. Inspired by Ford's GT40 race cars from the 60's, the Ford GT's performance as a street car easily eclipsed the race cars of yore.  Produced from 2005 to 2006, only 4038 of the cars were ever built making the Ford GT a desirable collectors car that fetches several hundred thousand dollars on the used car market, up from the original asking price of $139,000.

Project DC2 Integra - Fixing Old Clutch Woes With Centerforce

by Mike Kojima

Our DC2 Integra was a great find, in near unmolested close to stock condition despite being a GSR and being over 20 years old. Most DC2's of this era have either been mauled by a few generations of ricers, stolen several times or kept as treasured garage queens behind locked gates only to be driven to meets or other special occasions. 


 

Project S550: Part 2 - Addressing Shortcomings in the Suspension and Drivetrain

by Nathan Brummer 

We’ve gotten pretty familiar with Project S550 since our last update, having logged several thousand miles to date. While we’re still very much in love with the car, it has begun to reveal some of its quirks and shortfalls but, like any good relationship, we’re willing to work through these in exchange for our long-term goals. As with any good therapy session, it’s time to be completely honest and get all those ugly irritations and disappointments out in the open. We’ll start by recapping the issues we’ve encountered and then outline what we’ve done to address them.


 

Boersma Racing: SLB Limited FWD Record

by Frank Ewald

Chris Boersma has been preparing himself and his car for years. There was no mistaking the look in his eyes as he sat in the hot sun at Buttonwillow. He was ready for another victory. He was confident entering Super Lap Battle. You have to be confident to put out money on a flight from Toronto, Ontario, Canada to Los Angeles, California. Self-assured to load your car in a transporter to be sent across country. Comfortable with your ability as a driver to take on the best that North America has to offer in the world of time attack. Chris, backed up by wins and records in events across two countries, felt that he had a great chance for another victory.


 

Best of the Best: Corey Brosk’s 2010 Nissan GT-R

by Aaron Litchfield

We imagine owning a GT-R is a bit like dating a supermodel. It requires a lot of attention, and money to keep it happy. We had the opportunity to meet this lovely lady, and get to know the man who knows what it takes to keep this lady happy. Cory admitted that he loves the “best of the best,” No surprise then when he got bored with his 600 WHP Subaru, he ended up behind the wheel of a 2010 Nissan GT-R. His all-or-nothing approach to tuning has turned the stock car he bought, into the one-of-a-kind machine, you are currently drooling over.


 

SEMA 2016: Nerd’s Eye View Tuner Cars and Parts

by Khiem Dinh

What’s one of the primary reasons we all enjoy SEMA? The display of all the tuner cars and the parts that make them go fast. We can relate because we own the same cars and can buy the same parts. Granted, many of these cars are built to the extreme, but we can all dream can't we? In fact, some of these cars are completely attainable.


 

MotoIQ Wrench Tip - How to Gap Piston Rings

by Mike Kojima

Setting the gap on your piston rings is an important step to building an engine that performs at its best.  Getting your piston rings to have the optimal seal is perhaps the most critical aspect of good engine building.  Of course you want to spend time assuring that your machine work and cylinder wall finish is correct for the type of rings used but a lot of people neglect blueprinting the ring gap.


 

SEMA Sneak Peek 2016 - An Exclusive Chevrolet Event

by Karla Pestotnik

One of my uncles who lives in western Nebraska just bought a brand new Silverado to replace his old Silverado that he bought brand new when I was a child. However, he didn’t get rid of the old Silverado- he still has it. When he first bought the old Silverado, he was so proud of it. It was the first vehicle that he and my aunt were able to buy brand new. As humble, hard-working Americans with three kids in an area and a time where you could buy two or three houses for today’s cost of a new, decently optioned full size truck, this was a big deal. He let my cousins, my sister, and myself stop for ice cream while driving us home when he first got it- being the cool uncle that he is and as long as we promised to not spill any of it in his truck. Well, I was the one that accidentally spilled a drop of ice cream on his brand new bench seat in his brand new truck. Little eight-year old Karla felt so terrible, and honestly, I still feel bad about it today- the little ice cream stain is probably still there. It's possible that perhaps karma will have revenge on me if I end up taking his grandson out for ice cream when he is old enough.


 

RX-8 Daily Driver: Tune-Up!

by Frank Ewald

My 2004 Mazda RX-8 is great to drive and I love it. That is, until it will not start, at which time like everyone else who has a problem, I wish that I had anything else. Of course, over the span of five years this car has only let me down twice. And both times it was the dreaded rotary flooding issue. Now, it’s really not that dreadful; it is just very different than flooding a piston engine. Here is where I have to admit that I know that the tune up for my RX-8 should have probably happened a year ago. I am aware of purists who change the coils/wires/plugs annually. The mileage on my RX-8 certainly is not high enough annually to warrant that. Plus seat of the pants has shown me that it is running well – except for the past couple of months where my mileage has been dropping. Of course, I attributed that to the all city driving that the car has been doing.

by Mike Kojima

In the last edition of building the naturally aspirated K24, we were showing some of the detail of building a solid dry sumped bottom end for an Ariel Atom track car with a lot of aero. In this edition, we will be getting rid of the K24 Z7's main performance bottleneck.‚Äč


SEMA 2016: Nerd’s Eye View – Revolution Mini Works Project Mini

by Khiem Dinh

Every once in a while, there’s a vehicle that really catches my eye at SEMA. A vehicle that is something different than everything else at the show that year. A few years ago, it was Texas Dave’s Pikes Peak Evo. This year, it was the Revolution Mini Works Project Mini situated in the Dynapack booth.
