Project 350z: Testing the MotorDyne Engineering MREV 2 Intake Manifold

by Mike Kojima

We are reaching the limit of easy bolt on performance gains with Project 350Z.  In looking over the offerings from MotorDyne Engineering, the folks that bought us the intake manifold spacer which made such an awesome difference. we noticed that they had a lower intake manifold plenum available for the VQ35DE that would work for both the Rev-Up and original intake cam only variable cam timing engines.


 

Blacktrax Performance S2000 Motorsport Makeover: Part 2 - Cage Fabrication

by Edward Hu

In part two of this Motorsport Makeover, the guys at CT Engineering are working with Blacktrax Performance and TunerPlayground with the goal of building a full cage for Irene, the Blacktrax Performance S2000. The cage will be compliant with NASA, SCCA, Global Time Attack, Super Lap Battle, Redline Time Attack, and Pikes Peak International Hill Climb rules, in addition to other rule sets.

Project NSX Part 5 – We Dyno Test A Ported Intake Manifold and Headers

by Billy Johnson

In what will probably be the first and last article for pursuing naturally aspirated power gains in our 1992 NSX, we look into the design of the stock NSX’s Variable-Volume intake manifold, gut and port it, and add headers.  We then strap the car to a dyno to see how much power we gained over the factory rated 270hp @ 7,100rpm and 210lb-ft of torque @ 5,300rpm 90-degree 2,977cc V6 engine.

MPTCC '14 Round 1:  Buttonwillow Raceway

by Steve Rockwood

With the inaugural MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championship race postponed by rain and relegated to a local indoor karting arena, the first real race at a real track was much anticipated.  Would Edo Stepanyan continue his MPTCC dominance this season?  Would Justin Taylor improve on his second place points finish last season and put the heat on Edo?  Would Project G20 fulfill its promises as a MotoIQ project car and push for the lead as well?  Or would the addition of yet another Honda mix the podium up?


 

K&N Mustang American Iron RTR

Fully Filtered: Dave Martis’ K&N Engineering Ford Mustang RTR

by Justin Banner

NASA’s American Iron series is the modern equivalent of the Trans Am Series of the 60's and 70's; where Ford, GM, and Mopar cars slug it out in American Iron (AI) and the cars follow a weight to power ratio much like our own MPTCC series. In addition to AI, NASA also has classes for American Iron Extreme (AIX), where rules are more lax and horsepower gets insane; and Spec Iron (SI), where cars are built to one specification with the 05-10 Ford Mustang being the only chassis allowed. Dave Martis competes in the AI class with his K&N Engineering Ford Mustang RTR and has allowed us to show you the details of his amazing ride!

MotoIQ Radio: Motovicity Ticket to Ride Review and Project Updates

by Justin Banner and Kerryann De La Cruz

Our Motovicity Ticket to Ride stories are just starting to heat up! We'll dive into the FR-S build and then go into the start of the Mustang. We'll then dive into some of the news coming out of our sponsors and of our very own projects as they go along! Got comments or questions tonight? We'll have a Facebook hashtag for you to use again so we can comment on it!


 

Motovicity Ticket to Ride- On Track Shootout!

by Mike Kojima

For those of you that have been following the build ups of the Motovicity Ticket to Ride Ford Mustang and Scion FR-S by Performance and Styling in Connecticut and SpeedForSale Motorsports in Georgia, you have probably been dying to know just how good these cars turned out.

Both of the Ticket to Ride machines are prime examples of what can be done to late model cars with just a few elementary high quality parts and we, like you, have been dying to test them out in a back to back shootout against the stock versions of these models in a battery of performance tests.


 

Project 350Z- Testing the AEM Induction Cold Air Intake

by Mike Kojima

In our last trip to the dyno, we tested  AEM's Short Ram intake on our 350Z.  We were surprised to find a small but definite power increase over another leading intake that was already on the car.  Since AEM makes a long runner Cold Air Intake as well as the Short Ram, we decided to test that as well as an interesting contrast between the two vastly different intake designs.


 

Project E36 M3: Part 3 - Borla ExhaustProject E36 M3 (Silver): Part 3 - Uncorking the M3 with the help of a Borla Cat-Back Sport Exhaust.

by Billy Johnson

E36 M3s are notoriously difficult to make power out of while staying naturally aspirated and we are constantly in search of the best bang for your buck since a lot of money can be spent for little to no gains in power.

While this E36 M3 was previously used to test various intake components and eventually cams, the quiet 15 year old stock exhaust was left untouched.  With help from our friends at Borla, we dive into the exhaust half of the equation to free up some more ponies without breaking the bank while making our car sound more like an M3 should to better reflect its performance.


 

Cycling: A Year Later, Getting Faster

by Khiem Dinh

The MotoIQ crew has been busy this past year on two wheels of the self-powered variety. One of the goals was to get in better shape to be more effective at motorsports. The other goal was just to have fun and being relatively safe while we were at it. Cycling helped me in other ways too. See what I learned this past year doing the pedal-power thing and the data to back up my claim of better fitness.


 

Project 350Z- Increasing Oil Capacity with Jim Wolf Technology

by Mike Kojima

We have been working on getting more power out of Project 350Z's VQ35DE engine in our latest series of articles.  With success coming bit by bit, we decided that we had to give the oiling system a little help.  Some 350Z's with highly modified suspension and sticky tires have suffered from engine oiling issues when driven on the track hard.  The oil had simply sloshed away from the pickup under hard cornering allowing the oil pump to suck air.  Since engine bearings are made of soft metal and depend on a hydrodynamic layer of pressurized oil to prevent damage, any interruption of oil pressure caused damage very quickly.

Formula Drift 2014 Round 1 – Long Beach

by Justin Banner

Formula Drift was on a good roll with Qualifying going off without too much of a hitch. The pace of the event was perfect and despite the huge power numbers, cars were holding together so far. Will competition day continue this trend or would there be bumps due to new cars, drivers, and engines?
