Wine and Drama at Rally France

By Bill Wood

All over America this weekend people will be paying good, hard-earned dollars for the chance to see dramatic Hollywood stories they could see for free at the World Rally Championship round in France. Championships are at stake. First time competitors are in first place for the first time. An engine has blown up sidelining one of the best rally drivers in history. And all that was in the first of three days of competition.

Project MKVI Golf TDI: Introduction and Suspension Upgrades

By Steve Rockwood

Diesels aren’t for everyone. It takes a special breed to sacrifice comfort and performance for efficiency. They’re noisier than their gas counterparts, they make less power, you can’t find fuel for them everywhere, and they’re dirtier. Anyone who has been behind a diesel Chevy Celebrity wagon, breathing in clouds of diesel stink while crawling up the onramp at 23mph will attest to these sentiments. Fortunately, VW didn’t give up on improving the quirkiness of Rudolph Diesel’s sparkless engine. The TDI Clean Diesel engine found in our Project MKVI Golf TDI has none of these vices. It is the everyman diesel.

Dynomax VT Muffler Test! Does Quiet Mean Slow?

Dynomax VT Muffler Dyno Test!  Does Quiet Mean Slow?

By Mike Kojima

We had been bolting stuff onto our web guy Frank’s Infiniti G35 sedan, including a really cool prototype exhaust system from Berk Technology.  All this did was cause Frank to complain about how loud the car was.  Did we even know this guy anymore?  Anyways, to appease Frank who also happens to be the best web guy we know by far, we had to do something about the noise.

Project Miatabusa Part 9: Thank God We Finally Found a Starter

Project Miatabusa Part 9: We Finally Found a Starter!

by Dave Coleman

Somewhere in the great wide world of starters, there's surely something that will fit in the notch between the Hayabusa engine case and transmission case, line up with the Miata flywheel, have the right tooth pitch for a Miata, and have an unshrouded pinion, right? Sure, but where?

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.

Project Lotus Elise Part 1 - A proper introduction to the marque. 

By Wes Dumalski

ACBC -- These letters adorn the hood of every Lotus offered for sale worldwide.... These letters are an homage to Anthony Colin Bruce Chapman, the British Designer who founded Lotus Cars. Often times when people talk about car design they rarely speak of company ideology as designs of modern day production cars tend to include a series of compromises in performance for the sake of civility and creature comforts. The lack thereof is precisely what drew us to the Lotus marque. Quite simply the original founder's innovative and influential designs in the motor sports world are in place on every car Lotus produces.    Enter Project Elise.

Here at MotoIQ headquarters, we lack any kind of self-control and discipline.  When we first conceptualized Project Civic, we planned to keep it simple with only a few basic modifications. However, if you're foolish enough to involve me in a car build of any kind, you're simply asking for trouble.  Poor Annie Sam, I'm always taking things too far.  Blown head gasket?  Sure, we'll just replace that sucker and while we’re in there, we'll take care of a few other things too.  [Insert dastardly, evil laugh here.]  And so the engine build begins…
