M2K Motorsports 280 mph Ford GT

by Mike Kojima

The Ford GT was in our opinion America's first true exotic supercar. Inspired by Ford's GT40 race cars from the 60's, the Ford GT's performance as a street car easily eclipsed the race cars of yore.  Produced from 2005 to 2006, only 4038 of the cars were ever built making the Ford GT a desirable collectors car that fetches several hundred thousand dollars on the used car market, up from the original asking price of $139,000.

Turbo Tech: Calculating Compressor Flow

by Khiem Dinh

Hopefully you’ve already read our Turbo Tech: Size Matters article which gave a crude cheat sheet for sizing a turbocharger depending on your engine size and intended application. No real engine data is required to get you into the ballpark turbo size you would need. What if we do have some data though? A bit of simple math can let us plot compressor operating points more accurately on a compressor map.


 

350Z Track Monster - from Bling to Brute in 12 Easy Steps!

by Frank Ewald

In just a few years this 350Z has transformed from a pristine example of a Nissan 350Z to a mean and lithe example of an incredibly effective track car. Aesthetics being tossed aside in the aim to gain that fraction of a second to attain the top of the podium. The question that I asked, and likely some of you are wondering also, is how did Mike go from being a hard parker to being one of the most focused time attack drivers that I have met. I mean, he is so intent and tenacious at the track that it is difficult to have a conversation with him. When the competition is over, he is more than ready and willing to talk about his car and his journey into the world of Time Attack. Sorry for misleading you, though, it actually took a lot more than 12 steps to build this race package and none of them were easy!


 

Fabricating Turbo Headers and Exhaust Systems with Eimer Engineering and Burns Stainless

by Mike Kojima

How do you make a good turbo system even better?  We did it by enlisting the help of Burns Stainless. Our subject car had a turbo LS engine.  Although the car made lots of power, it had issues with lag, a drop in top end power, a ton of weight in the nose that negatively impacted handling and a propensity to burn up everything under the hood.

Support the RPM Act!

The effort to protect racecars from overreaching EPA regulations continues to build momentum. The White House heard your voice, now it’s time for you to tell Congress to take action.
 
The U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate recently introduced the The Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2016 (RPM Act), Which would ensure that converting street vehicles to racecars used exclusively in competition does not violate the Clean Air Act.

Sneak Peek: The Engines of IMSA Weathertech GTLM

by Khiem Dinh

The IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship has some of my favorite cars in all of motorsports because the GTLM class cars are based off of cars you can actually buy. Granted, they are very heavily modified, but they do start off as something you can buy. They also borrow heavily from their street car brethren putting some street parts, namely their engines, into accelerated race car durability testing.
