Project V8 E46 M3 Racecar: Adding KW Motorsport Suspension and StopTech Trophy Big Brakes!

by Mike Kojima

When we last left our E46 M3 Project, it was a body in white shell with a cage in it at Pure Performance. Pure started to build the car with an S65 V8 engine from an E92 M3 with a DCT transmission.


 

Quick Tech: Blowfish Brake Duct Install for BOSS 302

by Mark Gearhart

When it comes to track cars, there’s only so much heat dissipation a rotor can provide before itself becomes overheated. So how do you bring down the blazing braking temperatures even further? A fresh air duct system. We install a Blowfish Racing brake duct system on our Project BOSS 302Revival!


 

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.


 

Project Corvette Stingray C7 Z51: Remodeling the Interior

by Mike Kojima

The C7 Corvette's interior is a huge step up from its predecessors. Previous iterations of the venerable Corvette might have been awesome cars, but the interiors were plastic clad and had the look of a cheap rental car. Not so with the C7.


 

Doodlebug of Doom Part 2: Taming The Beast

by David Zipf

First we fixed the Doodlbug.  Then we rode the Doodlebug.  Then we changed our pants and parked the Doodlebug.  Now, we fix the Doodlebug again so we no longer need to ride with the brown pants.


 

Project GMC Canyon: Introduction and Icon Stage V Suspension

by Isaac Sandoval

I can't tell you how long I've dreamed of owning a mid-size pickup with a small diesel engine and 4WD. Living in Southern California, we are surrounded by plenty of great desert trails to explore. Another wonderful thing about living in Southern California is that our fuel taxes are high AF! Seriously, the taxes on fuel just went up again, and there is just no way I could justify having one of our two family vehicles be a complete gas guzzler. Enter the new 2.8 liter Duramax 4 cylinder diesel engine. This thing is a real gem when it comes to efficiency. The GMC Canyon Diesel is the highest rated MPG truck on the market. Period. No time is wasted with this project truck, and we install Icon Stage V suspension in this series. Read more to find out what we think!


 

WATCH: $1500 for a LSD?!?! Why the OS Giken Super Lock Limited Slip Differential is worth it!

MotoIQ Video

We recently installed an OS Giken Super Lock limited slip differential on our Project DC2 Integra! Watch as Mike Kojima explains everything you ever wanted to know about LSD but were afraid to ask! The OS Giken Super Lock 1-way differential completely transformed our Integra, and even at a price point around $1500, it's one of the biggest bang for the buck performance modifications you can do on a front wheel drive car- especially if you take it to the track!


 

Project Porsche 991 GT3 RS- Improving the Aero with a 911R Rear Diffuser

by Mike Kojima

How do you improve a supercar? It is not easy, but leave it to us to give it a try. We recently got to add a Porsche GT3 RS to our project car fleet. If you don't know much about Porsches, a GT3 RS is a limited production model, part of the current 991 platform family and the last of the great naturally aspirated 911's. 


 

Project DC2 Integra- Getting More Grip With OS Giken and Better Response With Centerforce

by Mike Kojima

With our DC2 Integra rocking a state of the art suspension, it was time to get our drivetrain in order for our anticipated track use and increased power. To get the power to the ground, we needed a limited slip differential, and we selected what we feel is the best FWD limited slip on the market- the OS Giken 1 way differential.


 

Project E39 M5: Yokohama Advan GT Wheels and & Nitto Invo Tires 

by Martin Gonzales

After installing the StopTech Trophy Brake System on our Project BMW E39 M5 we unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, had to say goodbye to our stock wheel package. The OE mesh wheels were not designed to clear huge multi piston calipers and neither the front or rear wheels would clear our new brake kit. So we had no other choice but to do a long-needed upgrade to our project's wheels and tire package. Enter Yokohama Wheels and Nitto Tire!
