Project Defiant1: KA24DE Built Part DEUX! The Devil's Details!

By Justin Banner

Does building a successful engine require thousands of dollars? Not always! Sometimes picking up the throwaway engine is the key to saving on building a great engine! The KA24DE doesn't have the JDM factor, but it does offer more cubic inches, a stouter block, and a powerful aftermarket! Is the garage built KA24DE the key to Defiant1's 350 Crank Horsepower goal? How did I start? Read on to see "the Devil's Details!"

Project Evo X GSR- Testing the K&N Typhoon Cold Air Intake

Project Evo X GSR- Testing the K&N Cold Air Intake

By Mike Kojima

We have a bunch of mods planned for Chris’s car, the first being a Typhoon cold air intake by K&N. The Intake worked so well that we decided to make it our first MotoIQ Certified Legit evaluation. The K&N Typhoon intake came with a dyno sheet that proudly proclaimed guaranteed power. Glancing at the dyno sheet we could see that the intake increased power by 20 hp near peak RPM. That seemed like a big gain so we had our concerns, this was a lot for just an intake, was it true or BS? We were going to find out with testing that was a little more in depth than just strapping the car to a dyno for a few quick pulls.

Juke vs 510

VIDEO: 2011 Nissan Juke vs. 1971 Datsun 510, Dave Coleman's Rally Beater

MotoIQ Staff Report

In an attempt to reassemble the late great SCC dream team, we have been trying to get Josh Jacquot to write for us for years but he won't.  We can hardly blame him though, he writes for the megasite insideline.com as a real job where he gets paid more than the pittance we could offer him..  However here is the next best thing.  At Insideline, Josh decided to pair up Dave Coleman's rally beater 510 against a late model Nissan Juke in a off road rallycross ish showdown in a story which is something like we would have done back in the day...

Project Nissan 350Z: The Birth of our Motegi Trak Lite Wheels with Nitto NT01 Tires

Project Nissan 350Z: The Birth of our Motegi TrakLite Wheels with Nitto NT01 Tires

By Mike Kojima

Our Project Nissan 350Z needs some new shoes.  The stock Nissan alloy wheels had developed a crack rendering them unsafe and the worn generic tires that the car came with were on their last legs.  It was time for an upgrade.  Since we wanted a specific offset and width for this medium powered car we called upon Motegi Racing to provide us with a set of their TrakLite wheels.

Infiniti G20 Project Racecar MotoIQ

Project Infiniti G20 Racecar: More Power!

By Steve Rockwood

Road racing is a thrill that has few equals in the wide world of wheels.  Drag racing, unless you're talking nitro cars, is a thrill that quickly loses its lustre.  Losing a drag race while road racing, however, is an exercise in abject frustration.  Nothing will make you hate your car more than nailing that apex and throttle point perfectly to extract every ounce of momentum coming out of the corner, only to watch your opponent sail right past you on a long straightaway and park it in front of you in the next corner.  Project G20 Racecar's tired engine, with over 130,000 miles on it, was destined to only let us down.  We needed to fix it.

Happy Thanksgiving from MotoIQ!

It's that time of year again folks; time to dust off those photohacks of Mike, Dave and Eric!  Looking back at how we've grown over the last year it's highly likely this is the first time you're seeing this work of art--and it IS a must see, so enjoy!  Once again we're thankful for all of our readers and the traffic they create, supporters and the sponsorship they provide, and the whole Nerd Alliance for making this site what it is!  We're thankful for our friends and family who put up with our terrible hours, travel and stress we bring home.

Adventures in China & Hong Kong, Part 2

by Eric Hsu

Back in May this year, I took a trip to Dongguan China to train a customer on the Cosworth ECPro ECU and its accompanying software suite. After spending almost a week in a not so Westernized city, it was great to be back in Hong Kong where the old, modern, rich, poor, foreign, and Chinese all come together in a densely populated peninsula. Forunately I was introduced to some locals who were cool enough to show me around for the 2.5 days I had free. I think I saw more E92 M3s and R35 GTRs on that trip in Hong Kong than I've seen in Beverly Hills collectively in the last three years.

Project Honda EJ Civic Fast brakes big brake kit

Project Honda Civic EJ: Fast Brakes Big Brake Kit

By Chuck Johnson
 
In the past few months, we've completely revamped Project Civic's suspension with a plethora of Skunk2 components; and then most recently, equipped it with a new pair of running shoes in the form of Enkei PF-01 rims and Nitto NT01 tires. Combine the results of these modifications with our goals of producing 200 plus horsepower and we should see some serious reduction in lap times. To truly realize Project Civic's full potential though, it's obvious that we need to balance our modifications and address its brake system.

Project Miatabusa Aluminum Exhaust lead

Project Miatabusa Part 12: Why You Can't Make Aluminum Exhausts... And Why I Did It Anyway

by Dave Coleman

From exhaust port to tailpipe, project Miatabusa's exhaust system fabrication has stretched well over a year and has followed a circular evolution from brilliant hack job, to exotic race tech, and back to brilliant hack job. From custom-fabricated race header, to a lightweight aluminum tail section, to scavenged RX-8 silencers and hangers made from an S13 power steering cooler, the exhaust system is as awesomely eclectic as project Miatabusa itself.
