Project Toyota Tundra- Installing and testing the TRD Supercharger Part2

Project Toyota Tundra - Installing and testing the TRD Supercharger Part2

by Mike Kojima

In a flashback Friday we're taking you back to when we turned our Tundra into a "Huge fast house" and showed an Evo driver who's boss. We have been building our Project Tundra into the ultimate towing machine over the past year with the help of Toyota and TRD. Toyota and TRD’s accessories including the supercharger are great in the fact that they do not affect your warranty and can even be financed at the dealer at the time you purchase your car if you are so inclined.

Wrench Tip: Cheap Breaker Bar

by David Zipf

The saying goes “the right tool for the right job.”  And it is 100% correct.  But what happens when you don’t have the right tool?  Sometimes you need to improvise.  See how we make a piece of plumbing pipe do things it was never intended to do.

Project S2000: Part 21 - Getting Rid of Squish

by Khiem Dinh

I’m often of the philosophy of replacing things as they wear out. And when they wear out, I might as well upgrade! It all started with a slight banging noise while going over bumps. Over a bit of time, it got progressively worse. Eventually, going over any type of bump including creeping over speed bumps caused a loud banging noise. What was the source?

by Billy Johnson

I’m a little late to the party since there are already plenty of reviews on the all-new 2015 S550 Mustang GT, but this review will take a slightly different angle written by a MotoIQer for MotoIQers.  Just the information you care about, how it compares to previous Mustangs, and how it stacks up as a sports car and not just a muscle car.

The Ford GTs of Robertson Racing

by Erik Jacobs

When thinking of the 24 Heures du Mans that takes place at the fabled Circuit de la Sarthe, Gainesville, Georgia is not the first place that comes to mind. Even though Georgia may conjure associations with the Petit Lemans, a 12-hour enduro that takes place in the fall of each year at Road Atlanta, the storied French endurance event and metro-Atlanta aren't exactly synonymous. Those who fail to make the association between Mulsanne and Gainesville Highway are overlooking a crucial part of Ford's GT racing history, as this is where you will find the current home of Robertson Racing.

New Product Release: Radium Engineering Fuel Rails For Nissan Engines

Industry Press Release

Radium Engineering has just released a collection of fuel rails for the popular 1990's Nissan 4-cylinders. The KA24DE, S13 SR20DET and S14/S15 SR20DET have been popular for many years. All of these engines come from the Nissan factory with side-feed injectors. High-flow side feed injectors are expensive and not many aftermarket side-feed fuel rails support the increase in fuel flow. A popular alternative is to convert to the more common, less expensive, top feed fuel injectors. We decided to start with a clean sheet of paper and solve the issues that can be found with top feed conversions and add some bonus features as well.
