KW Automotive USA-Plant Tour

by Mike Kojima

If you have been a long time MotoIQ reader, then you have probably read about our tour of performance suspension giant KW Automotive's production and R&D facilities in Germany. KW has had a North American operation for some years now, but has recently expanded their facilities from their first location in Sanger California to a new location in Clovis California. 

KW's old Sanger facility was mostly dedicated to warehousing and service of their suspension stuff. The new location is being put together to have additional flooring space for R&D, engineering and Manufacturing.  This includes all of the KW Automotive brands consisting of ST Suspensions, Belltech, LSD Doors and of course, KW Suspension.

Extreme Engine Tech, Building the Ultimate K24 Part 2 The Bottom End!

By Mike Kojima

In the last edition of our series, we had focused on the engines top end switching to a an earlier model K20Z3 head with Vtec on both the intake and exhaust sides of the engine and a removable exhaust manifold all big steps in getting more performance.

Now We will be turning our attention to the engine bottom end, fortifying it for turbo power! Like the head, our goal will be to use off the shelf parts available in stock at Motovicity in the build. This engine is not some super esoteric custom build but one anyone could easily duplicate.

Vetting the Vet's Vettes – A Look Inside MTI Racing

by Erik M Jacobs

Reese Cox cut his teeth behind the wheel of a Corvette, and his experience shows. In 1993, during the heyday of his time as team manager for Tommy Morrison Racing leading ZR-1 Corvettes through the 24 HRS of Daytona and other IMSA series, Reese founded MTI (Motorsports Technologies Incorporated) Racing. The 1998 SCCA World Challenge Rookie of the Year knows a thing or two about making these sleek bowties fast and powerful, and he was kind enough to open the doors of their shop to MotoIQ. Inside, we found a lot more than just some fast coupes.

Dasilva Motorsports: They Do It All!

by Frank Ewald

The rumble of a  Corvette’s big V8, supercharged, with cams is enough to shake the foundation of nearby buildings ... Walking to the shop door we were greeted with a beautiful, glistening black Chevrolet Chevelle SS.  And then you looked up and there was a 64 Corvette, the 69 Prostreet Camaro, a 2013 Camaro ZL1, a 2012 Corvette Z06, … and I could not count them all in that first few minutes.

Pioneer Video Producer Taro Koki is Now Using Social Media to Distribute Videos

By Jeff Kawano

Taro Koki was born in Japan but grew up most of his childhood life in the United States. As a child, he learned that Japanese pop culture was well received among his American classmates. Anime, manga books, figurines, funky snacks and of course cool cars. Japan was the land of all things “cool.” So when he moved back to Japan for college and several years later started his own video production company, he knew there was a demand for Japanese pop culture in the US.

Industry Insider: A Visit to COBB Tuning’s Headquarters

by Khiem Dinh

I travel to the ATX (Austin, Texas) a fair amount to visit friends, eat great food, listen to some live music, and partake in the growing car scene there. In the past decade, a couple private road courses have popped up to scratch the turn-fast itch. Of course, having the Circuit of the Americas recently added has only grown the go-fast culture in Austin. COBB Tuning apparently saw this coming and built their headquarters in Austin. I last visited them a couple years ago while in town for the first Formula 1 race. As with the rest of Austin, COBB has grown quite a bit since then.

by Wes Dumalski 

If you were one of the more than 40,000 sets of eyes that had a chance to read through our first PRI article, here is the sequel. In our previous article we slaved from 8:00AM to 1:30AM to bring you 16 pages of goodness! That meant a whirlwind tour through specific booths and a map of what we needed to cover from start to finish. It also left ZERO time to walk around the show and soak it all in on Thursday. So on Friday and Saturday we strolled to bring you what WE thought was cool, the things that caught our eye, our Nerd's eye....

Performance Racing Industry 2013

by Wes Dumalski

Someone had the genius idea to move the PRI show from Florida to Indiana for 2013 right around the time the entire nation was giving Florida the middle finger for being one of the only states above freezing temperatures. Fitting given that this was my first PRI show, why send the midwest frozen tundra guy anywhere warm? Regardless, more than 1200 exhibitors braved the cold to display their wares and latest performance goodies at the show. Step inside for a taste of what MotoIQ's partners had on display and stay warm...

GrimmSpeed Subaru top mount intercooler tested MotoIQ

Tested: GrimmSpeed Subaru Top Mount Intercooler

by Wes Dumalski

Around here we appreciate quality and well thought out parts that fill a void in the marketplace. Regardless of company size or the expanse of their market reach it is refreshing to see a company and its collective mindset introduce a product that doesn’t re-invent the wheel but goes a long way to making it much more efficient. In this case that company is GrimmSpeed and that product is their Subaru Top Mount Intercooler.
