Project G20 Race Car: Building a More Bulletproof SR20DE!

by Mike Kojima

The good old stock SR20DE in our Project G20 Racecar has been doing yeoman duty, reliably lasting for the last few years racing in the MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championship and doing many for-fun track days.  The stock SR20DE in our Project G20 Racecar came from a Japanese engine importer and has never been opened up, other than to add big cams back when we used to run the car in N/A trim.  For the past three years the engine has been turbocharged which has greatly increased the strain it's experienced. 


 

"My Girlfriend's" Miata: Part 6 - Gingerman Raceway Baseline

by Daniel O'Donnell

As luck would have it, the girlfriend had to work out of town and the semi-local track that we do all of our testing for the Professional Awesome Evo, Gingerman Raceway, was hosting a weekend track day. This would be the perfect opportunity to take the Miata, with or without her knowledge, up to the track. With tech and driving support from PA Motorsports owner, Grant Davis, it looked like the perfect opportunity to take the car around this wonderfully challenging racetrack to get some data on what the Miata could do. With the roll bar, seats, brakes and cooling system ready to go, it was also a great time to track test these systems to ensure everything was up to snuff and baseline the car for future improvements.


 

Project E90 M3: Part 5 - K&N Filter Cover

Project E90 M3: Part 5 – K&N Filter

by Billy Johnson

We gave our M3 a quick and easy bump in power by swapping out the factory air filter for the industry-leading High Performance K&N air filter.  We have seen some impressive gains from K&N products and feel there’s no reason you shouldn’t have one on every car you own!  But how much power can really be gained over the OEM BMW air filter in this highly stressed and finely tuned 8,250rpm screaming V8?  Read on to find out!


 

Project Viper Part 7 Heatshield Products Cover

Project VIPER GTS: Part 7 – HeatShield Products

by Billy Johnson

From coolant to cabin temperatures, Vipers are notoriously hot due to having one of the largest engines ever stuffed inside a sportscar.  To combat this problem we turn to the thermal insulation experts at HeatShield Products to keep the heat in the exhaust system to lower the temperature inside the cabin and side sills.  Hopefully we will prevent our side sills from discoloring and burning our legs when getting in and out of the car without proper clothing and ingress/egress technique.


 

Tested: Schroth Quick-Fit Harnesses

by Vince Illi

We've heard that a good set of harnesses can make a difference in lap times, but who wants to go through the ordeal of figuring out where to anchor them and cutting up a car's interior to install them, only to lose the use of the back seats?  We test out Schroth's solution with their Quick-Fit Harness system.

Getting a Little Louder with the ARK Design RacingSPEC Exhaust

by Bart Hockerman

I have been looking for a good single exit exhaust option since I bought the BRZ. I have always liked the single exit look vs dual. Once it was decided that that Project Autocross Subaru BRZ was going to upgrade to a brand name catback exhaust vs my homebrewed special, the search began.


 

Project IS-F: Evaluating the Nitto Motivo Tire

by Mike Kojima

Our Project IS-F is still around, it has been quietly and reliably racking up the miles doing daily driving duties in and around Orange County.  Our car is driven at about 70% street driving and 30% highway driving. One thing we have noticed is that the car has a healthy appetite for tires even though the car is used mostly for family transportation duty. For instance, the factory Michelin Pilot Sports were gone after only 11,000 miles. 


 

Polishing Project STurdteen with 57Xtreme Gramlights, DIY 5 Lug Conversion, and More

by Rathyna Gomer

While my S13 was serving as a POS missile car in the past, I had zero intentions of changing the stock 4-lug setup. However, as a part of polishing the turd I knew I had to start off by getting a good set of wheels that are good looking, light, and durable enough to withstand the tribulations of drifting. At that point it was a no brainer to go with the Gramlight 57Xtremes that have been on a few Formula Drift competition cars.


 

Project G37S UpRev Osiris Tuner

Project Infiniti G37S: Part 4 - UpRev Osiris Tuner

by Aaron LaBeau

When last we left our project in Austin, Tx we we’re making a solid 8hp from our Fast Intentions Exhaust and 10hp from the Stillen Gen 3 Intake. Over our last few articles we have lots of pictures of Donny and James from UpRev turning wrenches and now master tuner Omar Izaguirre cracks his knuckles and goes to work on the tuning.
