We Check Out AMS Performance's Turbo Test Rig

By Khiem Dinh

A couple years ago, AMS Performance became a Garrett turbo distributor. In order to best serve their customers, they needed a way to test all the turbos to determine how they performed. A turbocharger gas stand is extremely expensive. An engine dyno cell is very expensive. An old Evo shop car? That could be made to work as the turbo test rig.

Bringing the Heat: Under Control!

by Frank Ewald

With our first track day and Knox Mountain Hill Climb 2018 now behind us, we can say without question that the HeatShield Products and the Koyorad have absolutely increased the cooling capacity of the NX GTi-R on the track. Our benchmark temperatures were set last October on a cool and sunny day. The daytime high was 16°Celcius. The temperatures we checked on May 5 and it was a sunny day and the ambient temperature was 22°Celcius (that's about 72°Fahrenheit). The temperatures were checked after the car had been out for the second session and, as this was a CACC Time Attack event here at Mission's River's Edge Road Course, you can appreciate that the car was being pushed. Two weeks later the NX was at the 61st Annual Knox Mountain Hill Climb; the runs up the hill showed an amazing difference one year later. The extensive improvements to the cooling system absolutely worked.

Project DC2 Integra, Testing the Fluidampr Crank Pulley

By Mike Kojima

We have big plans for Project Integra B18C engine.  Instead of swapping to a K Series engine to make easy big power, we are going to build up the older but still noteworthy B Series engine that the car comes with. Something that is relatively easy due to this engines huge level of aftermarket support.

Ultimate SR20 Rebuild Guide: Part 1 - The Teardown

by Nikita Rushmanov

Hello and welcome to the Ultimate SR20DET Rebuild Guide! In this series we will be covering the disassembly, blueprinting and reassembly of a S13 SR20DET engine in extreme detail. We will explain how each measuring tool works and how you can use it to precisely blueprint an engine. We will also cover some of the custom tools we need to make along the way.

Controlling the Heat: KoyoRad

by Frank Ewald

In the last article we discussed how HeatShield Products were being used to contain the heat. This article is looking at the installation of a Koyorad aluminum radiator. It is this author's perspective that the Koyorad radiator has long been viewed as one of the best rads available for the Nissan SR20. The installation in the NX GTi-R was quick and painless. Koyorad is a very well known radiator company that build incredible aluminum racing rads. This new rad is a key part of optimizing the cooling system.

Project GT3RS Getting More Power With Dundon Motorsports Part 2

By Mike Kojima

The Porsche GT3 RS is a supercar with state of the art engineering in the powertrain department.  It has a naturally aspirated 6 cylinder flat 6 that pumps out an amazing 125 hp per liter.  The 9A1 engine has an 8800 rpm redline and a stratospheric 13:1 compression ratio which it somehow runs with on pump gas, even California's crappy 91 octane pee water, with the aid of direct injection.

Inside the 1000 hp LS, Dai Yoshihara's Formula Drift Powerplant

By Mike Kojima

MotoIQ Garage has taken over the development of Dai Yoshihara's engine program for the last two years from a famous high dollar engine builder. The previous engine had decent power but the reliability was lacking. We were experiencing some sort of engine related issue every few events and halfway through the season, the engine performance would degrade and a fresh engine would need to be installed.

Controlling the Heat: HeatShield Products

by Frank Ewald

In the last article on the NX GTi-R there should have been no doubt in anyone's mind that the temperatures in the engine bay and the engine itself were bordering on the extreme. Temperatures that were under control in 30 minute track day sessions were now spiraling upwards. The larger turbo, the tighter clearances when the engine was built with forged parts, and the loss of the mystical factory manifold heat shield when I transported the NX across the country have all conspired against me.

Can an Oil Change Make More Power? We Test Idemitsu ZEPRO Eco Medalist and Find Out!

By Mike Kojima

Can you make significant power gains just by changing oil?  In the past, we have proven that switching from a lower grade mineral oil to a premium synthetic oil can be good for a couple or three hp. However, is it possible to make serious gains in power from just an oil change by changing the viscosity of the oil as well as the type?

Project Hyper-Miler Jetta MKIV TDI Part 4, Upgrading the Turbo with Garrett

By Colin Clyne

For this 4th installment, the long-lost Project Hypermiler gets some ponies! We install a turbo from Garrett to take care of the hot side, and injectors and a tune from KermaTDI to take care of the cold side!

How to Build a 5.0 Coyote Engine on Any Budget

by Mark Gearhart

Many people look at the 2011-current Coyote 5.0 engine platforms as a complex and expensive engine to build. In reality, they are actually very cost effective and can be tailored from mild to wild with ease. Want to make 350 horsepower or 1,500+? No problem. In this article we are going to explain the different levels of Coyote engine building. We teamed up with a host of manufacturers and L&R Engines to build us a Coyote engine for road racing duty on Project BOSS 302Revival.

Nerd Alert Part 2! SKYACTIV-X: Were Our Predictions Correct?

by Karla Pestotnik

When Mazda first announced its infamous, new SKYACTIV-X engine, we made some preliminary guesses about its workings before any information was released. Guesses are guesses, but now that Mazda has released more official information about the all-new and exciting Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engine, it seems that we weren’t too far off. We recently got to poke around and even test drive their ten million dollar prototypes!

Project Porsche 991 GT3 RS: Dundon Motorsports Headers and Exhaust System

by Mike Kojima

It's tricky to attempt to improve the engine performance of a supercar, especially when its one that puts out 125 hp per liter like the Porsche GT3 RS does. When it comes to NA power, only the Porsche 918 hypercar and the Ferrari 458 Speciale have more punch per liter. With its screaming 8800 rpm redline, titanium internals and a sky-high 13:1 compression ratio, there isn't a whole lot more that can be done without serious engineering, beyond what most tuners can do.

We Test the Bimmerworld Exhaust and Epic Motorsports ECU Tune for E90/E92 S65 V8 BMW M3

by Pablo Mazlumian

When the S65 4.0-liter V8-powered M3 was released, enthusiasts loved the power, thanks to its 8000-plus RPM capability. However, many also deemed it not torquey enough for a V8. With this exhaust setup and tune, an M3 will make some torque, as shown in our testing at Modified by KC.

Improving Dai Yoshihara's Formula Drift Engine Wear With WPC Treatment!

by Mike Kojima

The world of Pro Drifting is a brutal place for machinery. Since I started my involvement with Pro Drifting 10 years ago, I have been amazed by the appetite for parts a pro car possesses. In all of my engineering career, I have yet to be involved with a motorsport that eats more expensive stuff on a regular basis.

Project S2000 AP1: Deatschwerks Fuel Pump Install

by Vincent Soto

All was not right with our Project AP1 S2000. It was making some louder than normal sounds that were coming from the fuel pump. The car would struggle to start as if the car had low gas or no gas at all. After some forum research and some diagnosing with a fuel pressure gauge, we had come to a conclusion that the fuel pump was bad.

After having the car for 5 years now, it was expected for it happen eventually. Since we got the car from the auction for 3200 dollars, there were no records of the fuel pump being changed or of any (well there was some records for tires bought in 2003) maintenance at all. With that being said, we started to look at fuel pumps on the market. In the end, we decided the go with Deatschwerks DW200 fuel pump (9-201-1000).
