You might have read our previous articles on how easy it is to set up the AEM Infinity EMS on the BMW M3 with great results in the heat of competition. Well the AEM Infinity is not just for BMW's, it works great on just about anything and we would now like to show you just how easy it is to set up on a Honda S2000.

For me, it probably started around middle school. Up to that point, I wanted to be a fighter pilot after having watched Top Gun. Then my vision went blurry around 5th grade being Asian and all. So then my interests transitioned to cars. I had that poster with the garage containing a Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Porsche on the wall. Since that time, it has been a dream to take a super car and drive the absolute piss out of it on a track with the engine screaming and tires squealing. Dream no longer as all you have to do is visit Exotics Racing in Las Vegas or Los Angeles. (Video from Khiem & Martin's track session on page 5!)

This is not your everyday battery charger! After nearly throwing away two expensive batteries we thought were dead, and wouldn't charge on two other chargers, the Digital 1200 brings them back to life overnight.

Last week we got a text message from Subaru tuner extraordinaire Quirt Crawford. Quirt was pretty excited about one of his company's, Crawford Performance's new products, a set of Power Blocks intake manifold spacers for the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ FA20 engine.

Tires on a truck are often ho-hum items. Most truck owners aren’t interested in shaving tenths off of lap times, nor are they generally interested in how well they perform at the limit of adhesion. Generally speaking, as long as it’s comfortable, doesn’t feel too dangerous, lasts long enough and generally holds air, most are happy to let them be. For our Nissan Xterra, while we’d like to say otherwise, we were of about the same mindset. When Nitto approached us with a set of their new Dura Grapplers, however, we were amazed at what happens when a manufacturer strives to make something better than just "good enough".

"So you guys are really going to test that thing?"
"Of course, we're from MotoIQ. Now make like a tree."
With five simple steps that will work for any car, we take a high-mileage minivan and make it run better on the dyno and in the quarter mile. Yes, really.

If you’ve been hooked on the go-fast crackpipe long enough, you probably have a binder full of old race notes somewhere, even if it’s just some basic tire temp and pressure data scribbled on a scrap piece of paper. Maybe it’s in your trailer in a box labeled ‘spark plugs’, maybe it’s in your home office in a folder labeled ‘receipts’, or if you’re like me, your notes are in an old envelope in a duffle bag down in the basement.

We install a Magnaflow system in hopes to quiet the car down a little further, given car's cat-delete setup. Find out how the test goes--with video included!

To be honest we were not big fans of octane boosters. In the past, we have not been able to get good quantifiable results with them over the years. Older boosters ate up the fuel system or left weird deposits on the plugs and chamber. Engines that usually need higher octane are generally expensive so we have always just used racing fuel in them, Pump gas with conservative tuning for street cars and race fuel for race cars.
Meanwhile, Royal Purple had been bugging us about testing some of their new Max Boost octane booster. They told us that it would give us 3 points in octane for sure and burn clean. Not being too enthusiastic about octane booster in general we let it sit around for about a month.
