Project SC300 Road Racer: Part 16 - We have ignition!

by Erik Jacobs

In the last segment, we said that we had finished wiring everything, but that’s not quite true. There were just a couple of finishing touches to sort through and then we would be able to power up the chassis and start programming devices!


Inside the 1000 hp LS, Dai Yoshihara's Formula Drift Powerplant

By Mike Kojima

MotoIQ Garage has taken over the development of Dai Yoshihara's engine program for the last two years from a famous high dollar engine builder. The previous engine had decent power but the reliability was lacking. We were experiencing some sort of engine related issue every few events and halfway through the season, the engine performance would degrade and a fresh engine would need to be installed.

Controlling the Heat: HeatShield Products

by Frank Ewald

In the last article on the NX GTi-R there should have been no doubt in anyone's mind that the temperatures in the engine bay and the engine itself were bordering on the extreme. Temperatures that were under control in 30 minute track day sessions were now spiraling upwards. The larger turbo, the tighter clearances when the engine was built with forged parts, and the loss of the mystical factory manifold heat shield when I transported the NX across the country have all conspired against me.

Can an Oil Change Make More Power? We Test Idemitsu ZEPRO Eco Medalist and Find Out!

By Mike Kojima

Can you make significant power gains just by changing oil?  In the past, we have proven that switching from a lower grade mineral oil to a premium synthetic oil can be good for a couple or three hp. However, is it possible to make serious gains in power from just an oil change by changing the viscosity of the oil as well as the type?

Ryan Passey's Amazing Mazda Hyper Miata

By Mike Kojima

We have always liked the super-efficient cars of Moti Almagor's Blackbird Fabworx. His cars have a distinct signature; lightweight, elegant, very fast with very little horsepower. Focus is put on maximizing handling, braking and cornering grip in a simple package. Recently at the last Global TIme Attack event at Buttonwillow raceway we got to check out Ryan Passey's, of Goodwin Racing, 1990 Mazda Hyper Miata that was built by Ryan in collaboration with Blackbird Fabworx.


WATCH:  IMPROVING the R35 GT-R! Part 5 - Advan Wheels & Toyo Tires

Join us on our multi-part journey to improving what is arguably the best car ever made. Inexperienced "tuners" can easily ruin the R35 GT-R's performance prowess by just throwing parts at it without giving any thought to how all the parts are going to work together. That is NOT how we do things here at MotoIQ!

In Part 5 of our series we install Advan RZ-DF wheels and Toyo R888's!
