The Tech Garage Low Cost Borescope!

by Mike Kojima

Just a few short years ago having access to a borescope was a luxury that few racers, engine builders, and hobbyists could afford. You would typically have to spend a few thousand dollars for one. They were not that flexible, in that you would either not be able to record images or would have to spend a bunch of money for camera adapters. 


 

Tested! Honeywell Garrett Upgraded Intercooler for the EcoBoost Mustang

by Mike Kojima

Honeywell by Garrett has recently released a direct fit bolt-on intercooler solution for the EcoBoost Mustang, and we didn't wait any time to verify how it performs! We knew our friends at HPS Performance Products had been time attacking their EcoBoost Mustang, so it would be the perfect test bed for our intercooler test. Read on for all the details and DATA!


 

TESTED: STEEDA Anti-Wheel Hop Package

by Billy Johnson

First iterations of new technologies are rarely flawless. When the Mustang ditched the solid axle in 2015 in favor of a 21st century Independent Rear Suspension, it transformed into a modern-day sports car with greatly improved ride quality and handling dynamics. Unfortunately, the new diff and subframe are mounted with soft, compliant rubber bushings that cause a significant wheel hop when launching the car and unwanted toe changes in corners. This affects drag and road racers alike. In order to eliminate these issues, we tested Steeda Autosport’s Ultimate ‘Stop the Hop’ Package and Adjustable Differential Bushing Insert System.


 

Tested: Mirror Bright Vinyl and Rubber Treatment

by Mike Kojima

We usually don't get excited enough about car care products to write about them, but every once and awhile, we get something in the mail that gets our attention. Tire treatments are something we could usually care less about. The market is saturated with all sorts of goop to put on tires.


 

Project AP1 S2000: Installing Forbidden Side Diffusers

by Karla Pestotnik

Project AP1 S2000 has specific plans to be the ultimate, fun street car that can hold its own performance-wise, without losing its street-ability factor by turning into a full-blown racecar or track dedicated car. However, what is a good handling street car without its good looks? We clean up the S2000's rocker panels with a set of Forbidden USA's carbon fiber side diffusers.


 

Tested: Rally Ready Driving School!

by Khiem Dinh

I started watching WRC around fifteen years ago and more recently rally cross, but I had never learned the skills required to drive a car in dirt. I’ve done drag racing, auto-x, road courses, motorcycle track days, and more recently supermoto. Heck, I have even gone mud bogging and driven dune buggies, but I haven’t gone sideways in dirt. It so happens our buddy Texas Dave has his Rally Ready driving school in my favorite city of Austin, Texas.

A lot of you might be familiar with AntiGravity Batteries as the supplier of ultra light and powerful Lithium Ion batteries used in Motorsports. Their batteries have been used by us in a few of our projects, and most of our personal race cars sport their batteries. 


 

Lessons in Turbo Technology with Garrett - Burst Containment

by Mike Kojima

What is burst containment for a turbocharger, and why is it important?  A turbocharger is a system that has a lot of potential to cause a lot of bad stuff to happen to drivers, spectators, and surrounding equipment.  Why, might you ask? Well, a typical turbocharger can spin at up to an unfathomable 200,000 rpm for a small frame turbo and a still amazing 90,000 rpm for a large frame turbo!  That is a ton of potentially ass-kicking force. We will show you how much later and it's enough to make you cringe.


 

How Magical is Black Magic Intense Wheel Cleaner? We Test it Out!

by Karla Pestotnik

With a word such as 'magic' in the name, it's easy to assume that you're getting some really good wheel cleaner. We are slightly more skeptical, however, and we had to see for ourselves. What if Black Magic wheel cleaner didn't live up to its name? 

Okay, enough quirky jokes. Let's get to scrubbing! Or do we even need to scrub? Looking at the directions...


 

Testing Meguiar's Two Step Headlight Restoration Kit!

by Mike Kojima

Any car that has the newer plastic headlights will experience weathering and yellowing eventually. This is caused by UV light exposure degrading the protective coating on the surface of the lights. Once the coating is eroded, UV light makes quick work of the clear plastic underneath, and the light becomes cloudy and yellow.
