Protect your FR-S Airdam with Protekt Skidplates!

by Mike Kojima

No matter how careful you are, you will do it eventually.  We have done it plenty of times. Modern high performance cars now almost always come with low airdams which make a big difference aerodynamically.  This means that you have probably hit them on the ground and damaged them on speed bumps, driveways and parking lots no matter how anal you are.

Project M3: Part 8 - Dealing With The Dreaded EML Light

by Pablo Mazlumian

If you've ever had the yellow EML light come on, it usually has to do with the drive-by-wire system.  In Project E46 M3's case, every time it came on, it would stall the car and render it useless unless you knew what to do to reset it.  Check out what we did to get the car running tip-top again.

Project V8 RX-7: Part 15 – Major Suspension Overhaul

by Jeff Naeyaert

A couple of annoying sharp eyes on our last update a few weeks ago revealed that we had some KW suspension bits on our RX-7, so we've been forced to get off our lazy butts and write about them, some SuperPro bushings and a bunch of Improved Racing suspension goodies we put on as well in our attempt to make Project V8 RX-7 not only corner as well as it goes straight, but also remain tolerable and civil for daily driving.

Chasing the Dragon

by Per Schroeder

Sometimes the best roadtrips arise from happy accidents.  Maybe “accident” is the wrong word choice when talking about a drive in a car, but nonetheless, random happenings make for the best trips. One such bit of randomness got me on the best roads in the country with a set of tires that needed to be worn out before they were thrown away.

Project E36 M3 (Silver): Part 5 – Updating the Headlights With HID Euro Ellipsoids

Datsun 510: Are You Sure?

by Frank Ewald - with John Paul Ellis

John Paul’s 510 was not running. Sitting for a dozen years it actually was in the way more than once, and was sometimes moved with less attention to its history than it deserved. It was not forgotten; but it was derelict and at risk of sitting forever. It came with a 1.8 L series engine that was used in vintage endurance racing. Initially considering keeping the blood lines in the family a CA18DET was thought about. Then a KA24DE engine was considered - it was even placed into the engine bay. So was a built SR20VE drivetrain. Purchases were made and plans were in place, but then J-P tossed them all out and moved to a 9000 RPM AP1 Honda S2000 engine. It is not the first time that an S2000 engine has been transplanted into a Datsun 510. But no other 1973 Datsun 510 comes with the history that this two door model contains.

by Clint Boisdeau

So Project 370Z has not seen a power part upgrade since the first installment of the series which included the AEM “E.T.I.” cold air intake nearly 3 years ago.  Despite the Fairlady’s solid power to weight ratio as it stands, a bit more power, sound, and weight reduction from an aftermarket cat back exhaust system was desired.  With the help of ARK Design USA, the exhaust side of Project 370Z was going to see its first step in unlocking some power and performance oriented notes.
