Building the Ultimate Turbo Small Block Chevy Part 2, The Making of 1100 Hp!

by Mike Kojima

When deciding the best way to power Daren McNamara's Formula D S14, Team Falken decided to plow into new territory with not just a turbo, but a turbo V8.  Not your typical Chevy LS V8 either, but a blast from the past old school Small Block Chevy.  In our last edition of building the ultimate Small Bock Chevy, we looked into the developments that had been made to the venerable 60 year old design to update it to modern standards, particularly the bottom end. In short, the improvements were mostly moving the cam upward to allow for more stroke and to shorten the pushrods for less flex, and a general beefing up of the lower end architecture to support today's power levels.

New MoTeC M1 Package For The FR-S/BRZ Is A Tuner’s Dream!

Industry Press Release

It’s not often that a true driver’s car like the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ come along. A fun, affordable sports car that begs to be let loose on the track. But when the urge for increased performance strikes, as it inevitably does, there’s a limit to what is possible with the factory ECU and most aftermarket systems given the car’s sophisticated inbuilt electronics.

Arrive and Drive

by Per Schroeder

Autocross is rather unique in the motorsports world, in that you can have different drivers competing in the same exact car at the same event. It’s a great test of how good of a driver you are against a real, live benchmark. Competitors can also share cars to save money, warm tires or just have fun. Co-driving an unfamiliar can teach you a lot about the sport and how to learn a new course quickly, but it also can be a great way to take a car for a test drive before you commit your cash to a project.  Learn from the experts on how to make the most of your co-drive and learn a new car quickly!

Nerd's Eye View: USCC Speedsource Mazda

by M-P Spierer

SpeedSource Race Engineering and Mazda were always a dynamic duo with their rotary powered RX-7 and RX-8 GT cars over the past 20 years, but what they have done for the new Tudor USCC series is on an entirely different level of awesome. A compound turbocharged, SKYACTIV diesel powered prototype racecar? Yes, please.

Road to Speed Week 2014 Part 1: The AEM Infinity 8 EMS and AQ-1 Data logger

Road to Speed Week 2014 Part 1: The AEM Infinity 8 EMS and AQ-1 Data Logger

by Chuck Johnson

If this past year's Speed Week taught us anything, it was that Project 240SX LSR's electrical system needed a complete overhaul.  Our previous harness had been built in haste during the few days leading up to Speed Week 2012.  At the same time, we also knew that if we were going to top the land speed record we set last year, we needed traction control, data logging, and the ability to control any parameter of the engine whether we were on the dyno or on the dry lake beds of EL Mirage or Bonneville.  We found the answer to our needs in the form of AEM's AQ-1 data logger and Infinity 8 stand alone programmable EMS.

ChumpCar World Series: WGI Part 2 - Did No Budget Racing Finish?

by Frank Ewald

Sunday, with some quick reflexes and creativity with the electrical system, Rob ran a lap in the #881 Civic that tied the fastest lap of the day, however, we were down so many laps that, apart from us, I am not sure anyone noticed. Then the next gremlin hit. Fourth gear became more and more of a challenge to find until it simply disappeared.

Sneak Peek: GTSport Pirelli World Challenge Cayman S

by Khiem Dinh

“Wait… it’s not a 911!” was my first thought after getting the front quarter-view of the car. Looking at the car strictly from the front, it’s easy to confuse a Cayman with a 911. Personally, from a purely technical standpoint, I prefer the Cayman with its mid-engine layout over the 911’s rear-engine layout. 911s are very common in racing series across the world, so to see a Cayman got my interest. Reset-MD go my interest too, more on them later.

Building the Ultimate Turbo Small Block Chevy-Part 1

by Mike Kojima

The Small Block Chevy is a dead outdated hunk of iron that is best left to old guys puttering around restoring muscle cars in their garages, or is it?

The venerable Small Block Chevy was first introduced to the motoring public in 1954 and was installed on the assembly line until 2003 and is still in production as a replacement motor.  This means that the good old small block has been around for 60 years, making it one of the longest lived and most produced engines of all time with over 100,000,000 being built to date.

Dai's super small block is in the process of being built for even greater power and reliability in 2016 but it's worth a look back to see the state of tune just a couple of years ago.

Garage Love: Please Don't Call It My ManCave

by Per Schroeder

I got a glimpse inside a garage that’s normally closed up tight along my route to work today. What first grabbed my eye was a new looking four-post lift stuffed on one side of a two-car garage.  An early fifties Ford was parked next to the lift, the flat-black paint and contrasting white and red pinstripes indicated that while the owner wasn’t on my sports-car loving team, they certainly played the same game.
