Project Pathfinder Part 11, Fixing the Wobbly Steering for Good

By Mari Umekubo

We had just gone through the front suspension of Project Pathfinder a year ago in the hope that our mods at the time would tighten up its pathetically loose and wandering steering.  Although our mods made a huge difference, after about 12,000 miles, a couple of off road excursions and a bunch of towing it became apparent that our front suspension would again need attention.

AEM water injection system

Ask Sarah- Does water injection work?

By Sarah Forst

Hey Sarah,

I have a turbocharged 1995 Integra GS-R with a T3/T4.  I usually set the boost around 8-10psi but sometimes I get up to 14psi.  I still have a stock ignition.  Is this boost too high for 91 octane?  One of my friends said I should install a water injection system, but doesn’t that just kill power?  Can you recommend any water injection systems?

P.F.

By Mike Kojima

Found in the 1990 to 1996 Nissan 300ZX twin turbos, the Nissan VG30DETT is a robust, sturdy engine right out of the box.  The VG30DETT like many Japanese engines of the era is pretty stoutly overbuilt in stock form, making it an excellent candidate for wringing high power levels out of it.
