Project Gen 3 STi: Testing the COBB AccessPORT

By Wes Dumalski

As it turns out owning a project car is not easy! First and foremost these are real cars owned by real people that pay for them with their own money. Life as well as vehicle practicality and reliability have ways of getting in the way of project car progress and/or completion. Take our Gen 3 GR STi project for example... We had had the car repainted, put back to stock all just so we could start fresh. OK so that is a total lie, the real story is that the previous project car was sold by the owner after blowing up it's totally stock motor on more than one occasion...

Adventures in China & Hong Kong, Part 1

by Eric Hsu

Last month I took a trip to Guangdong, China and Hong Kong to train a customer to use the Cosworth ECPro ECU and software suite. I had no idea what to expect in China. It was to some degree what I expected being a developing country, but it was also good to discover that street car tuning is alive and kicking. Track days are massively gaining popularity and there's even a touring car race series.

Subaru to Race Both WTCC and WRC?

Motorsports improves the breed. Too bad it won't improve the way the 2008 Impreza hatchback looks (I dig the sedan actually), but at least Subaru is racing it. It looks like the WTCC and the WRC are heading toward the same set of rules so now teams can race in both events with minor changes. This is good news. Hopefully the other factories will follow suit. Racing as a whole (outside of redneck dirt modified and circle track stuff) needs growth.

The Red Dragon - Part 2

Progress is slow on the Red Dragon since everybody is busy all the time. Lew is currently working on the suspension. In our search to create a perfect Impreza, I contacted the guys at Whiteline in Australia to see if they would be interested in working with us. Fortunately they were and Whiteline sent us the works. Every bushing, bar, ball joint, bracket, and piece they had for the 2008 STi showed up a week after our email and phone conversation. Thanks to Mike Kojima for setting this up for me; what a cool guy. Mike also set me up with some custom Whiteline sway bars for the [Read the rest of this article...]
