Project Garage Part IV: Air Compressors

by Sarah Forst

Many times I've struggled with stubborn bolts, cursing car manufacturers wth a number of expletives in languages I didn't know I could speak. Stripped, rusted, or fused, these bolts can make any breaker bar retire early and hit happy hour. Unfortunately if I ever wanted to mod any of my cars, my only other option was blowing off some steam… well, hot air really. My air compressor is not only convenient, but necessary.

Project Racer Part 11: Grip Addiction; We Install Progress Sway Bars

By Annie Sam

Modificum Racerium – a chronically debilitating disease which is characterized by the irrationally obsessive addiction to car modification and speed. “More!” we keep chanting, as we illogically pass up hot meals for cup o noodle in order to quell this addiction by buying more upgrades for our soon to be NASA PTD car.

Project Nissan Sentra Spec-V Part 7: Installing a Turbo System

Project Nissan Sentra Spec-V Part 7: Installing a Turbo System

By Mike Kojima

Since the long stroke QR25DE does not like high rpm, we have chosen to limit its maximum revs to 7000 rpm and make power by adding turbo boost.  Jim Wolf Technology designed our turbo system to produce power over the widest possible range of RPM rather than peak power.  The JWT system was also designed for simplicity, lightness and reliability over maximum power.
