Another SEMA has come and gone and the vehicles get crazier and better built every year. Tuner track cars, all-out race cars, off-road vehicles, you name it and it has been taken to the next level. After walking a couple dozen miles fueled by much caffeine, here is just a small collection of a few of the cool things I saw. Please excuse the fuzzy pictures… too much caffeine I tell you.

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.

Project SEMA Scion Tuner Challenge FR-S: Easy Power with an Unorthodox Racing Pulley

by Mike Kojima

In previous installments of Project SEMA Scion Tuner Challenge FR-S, we've worked on improving the suspension, braking and improved the grip with a new set of wheels and tires.  Now we will start focusing on getting more power out of the engine.  We will begin with simple modifications and start to ramp things up in our quest for power.

Our first step is perhaps the most basic, adding a lightweight Unorthodox Racing front pulley. The Unorthodox pulley is not an underdrive pulley but a lightweight pulley that takes several pounds off the engine's reciprocating mass. Spinning up extra mass takes power and a lightweight pulley can free up some of that power to reach the rear wheels.

Come along as we find the Rocket Bunnies among other things.
