Garrett Turbo Bug

Sneak Peek: Craig Gibbs 1970 Volkswagen Beetle

by Justin Banner

The Volkswagen Beetle, a timeless car that is popular to this day despite its early and rather, evil, beginnings. The Volkswagen was supposed to be the "People's Car" and hippies loved them. Then the car nerds got a hold of one and found out they made a great jack of all trades car. From Baja to Sand Drags, from drag racing to road racing. "Bugs," as they are affectionately known, are the most versatile cars on the planet. This story will be one of versatility, as you'll soon discover this Bug has lived many lifetimes even while under the care of its second owner, Craig Gibbs, Technical Manager from Garrett Turbo. Yep, it's got a turbo, too.

MotoIQ Project Hypermiler VW Jetta Cover

Project Hypermiler: Handling Upgrades

By Steve Rockwood

The door handles and mirrors on Project Hypermiler came painted, and swapping out the sad excuse for shocks and springs on this car was absolutely necessary to keep them that way.  On top of that, the stock wheels and tires left the car looking like a grizzly bear riding a skateboard, making it an unfathomable proposition to retain these pizza-cutters after going through the trouble of upgrading the suspension.  Luckily, Suspension Techniques, Whiteline, Enkei, and Nitto had off the shelf solutions to help Project Hypermiler actually turn a corner at ludicrous speed while keeping its mirrors and door handles painted.

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.

Project Hyper-Miler Part 2: Maintenance

by Steve Rockwood

I hate maintaining vehicles.  Nothing is worse than sweating your ass off and busting knuckles for hours only to have a car that was only as good as when you started.  No better, no worse (hopefully).   If cars stayed clean, parts never wore out, and oil stayed golden, I'd piss my pants in jubilation.  Unfortunately, everything on this planet has a nasty habit of degrading, and cars are no exception.

Project Hyper-Miler Part 1: Introduction

By Steve Rockwood

Let's face it: the days of cheap fuel are over.  Whether you want to blame Wall Street, the government, democratic demonstrations in the Middle East, OPEC, hippies, China, or the soccer mom next door; the fact remains that if your buddy tosses you a five spot for gas money, you're more likely to punch him in the face than thank him.  And everyone understands a punch in the face.

Project Sipster part 3 lead

by Dave Coleman

 

Project Sipster is full to its bare metal roof with luggage, disorganized boxes of Rabbit parts and a full Cabriolet body kit; fender flares, side skirts, front bumper and all. To the untrained eye, it looks like a homeless camp. Our Editor isn't helping with the image problem. In the 30 minutes he's been stranded, hoping somebody, anybody will drive past this desolate stretch of Canadian nothingness, Jared has put on two pairs of pants, three sweatshirts and a sleeping bag. He hasn't slept for days and his hair… actually, his hair always looks like that.

Project Sipster part 3 lead

by Dave Coleman

Any dropout parts jockey can open a parts book and order a new left axle for a '91 Integra, but what if you have an engine from a '91 Integra and an insatiable desire to put it in an '86 Chevy Sprint? There isn't a book in the world that will tell you which axle will work for that one.

Project Sipster Part 2 - The Road to Regina

by Dave Coleman

 

The Diesel engine's stubbornly inaccurate reputation as smelly, rattly and tragically underpowered was cemented in America's collective memory in large part by the Diesel Rabbit. However great they may seem with the tint of nostalgia and the amnesia of time, they were, in reality, pretty awful. But even judged by the exceedingly low standards of its original performance, this particular example was utterly pathetic. Pedestrians could beat it across an intersection at full throttle, and nothing short of driving off a cliff would convince it to break 30.
