King Bearings Announces Oversized XPG Main Bearings For Subaru EJ

Industry Press Release

King Engine Bearings has just released two new oversized main bearing kits for the Subaru EJ series engines. Due to the nature of the Subaru split-block boxer engine design,  where two halves of the engine are fastened together around the crankshaft, there can often be distortion or misalignment even on new engine blocks. This distortion can lead to uneven main bearing wear and occasionally bearing failure due to insufficient lubrication and overloading of the bearing surface material. Main line bore distortion can also occur in new blocks that have been assembled using high strength case fasteners, which are common in racing and high performance engine builds.

Upgraded NX: Breaking 10!

by Frank Ewald

Breaking the ten second barrier in the quarter mile in any vehicle is an accomplishment. In a front wheel drive car perhaps even more so. The challenge is even greater for Carlos Joseph, who has his sights aimed at breaking the ten second mark in his 1993 Nissan NX2000. There are very few Nissan's with the FWD SR20 based engine that have accomplished this, but I think that Carlos is going to make it happen in his AES Automotive built NX2000.

Project V8 RX-7 SSR SP4 Professor Wheels Stoptech trophy brakes toyo r888 tires

Project V8 RX-7: Wheel, Brake and Tire 3 PART MEGAPOST!

Part 3 - The Wheels and Tires Meet the Brakes and Body Kit

by Jeff Naeyaert

In Part 1 of our Wheel, Brake and Tire miniseries, we ordered a set of SSR Professor SP4 wheels for our RX-7 from Tanabe and were patiently enduring the two month wait for them to be built in Japan. During that time we fitted our car with a Stoptech Trophy big brake kit (in Part 2) hoping they would clear the wheels.  Right on schedule our wheels arrived and we were able to pick them up from Tanabe's facility in Torrance!  In Part 3 we’ll finally see how close all our guesses were to being “good enough”!

Project Autocross BRZ: Dodging Cones With GT Radial

by Bart Hockerman

“Who is GT Radial?”

That was the 1st words out of everyone's mouth when reading the SCCA Solo Contingency Program page. 

What seemed to be a more known name on the West Coast was virtually unknown throughout the rest of the country. The next big question is “What tire do they have that we will want to use?”

Mission Raceway: For Those 12 Seconds or Less!

by Frank Ewald

I am sure that there is no other form of auto sport that combines the aromas of oil, gasoline, and rubber quite so well as drag racing. Then there is the sound! There is an adrenaline rush as the whine of superchargers, the whistle of turbochargers, and the ear drum crushing thump of massive V8 engines roar off the line. And you had better be ready at that line or your time will not be near 12 seconds (it was a test and tune night. I could have used Dom's 10 second line, but not that many cars were running 10's!) and your timesheet will reflect your poor reflexes. There would undoubtedly be a few comments when you returned to the paddock.

Project #YAE92 M3: Part 4 – Let’s do some catching up.

by Mike Bonanni
title photo by: Garrett Wade

Remember that blue E92 M3 build that we were featuring here on MotoIQ a while back? The one that seemed to fall off the face of the Earth? Good news, it’s still out there and many of you may have already seen recent photos of that project bouncing around the internet without even realizing it’s the same car. Unfortunately the car has progressed so drastically and quickly that I just couldn’t keep up with the articles. Now that the car is largely “done” I have some time to get our faithful MIQ readers caught up.

Project 350Z: Building a New Engine - Part 1

by Mike Kojima

Our Project Z was a pretty good example of what a naturally aspirated VQ35DE could do. However, our  VQ had become old and tired. It was worn out from a lot of minimal maintenance street miles, track days, drift and professional stunt driving practice and had started to develop some rod knock.  Luckily we were able to stop before serious damage to the engine internals resulted.  However an engine rebuild was in order. 

Our objective in building this engine is not to build the most awesome NA VQ possible or even to get tons more power, but rather to perform an economic build to address some of the VQ's durability shortcomings, replacing stock parts when necessary with some good quality aftermarket bits.

Formula Drift Round 4: Wall Speedway

by Sarah Forst

Wall Speedway isn't called "The Gauntlet" for nothing. The guardrail here is an industrial strength can opener that shreds any fender, bumper, or tire that dares to get too close. Throw in some East Coast thunderstorms and you've got exhilirating battles. Fredric Aasbo took home his first top finish here last year. Could he make the Wall his bitch again?
