Project Car Update:  The V8 Edition

By Colin Holte

A quick glance at the project car column should tell you that MotoIQ has a large (and ever expanding) roster of project vehicles.  With all these vehicles it can sometimes be tough to keep the updates flowing for each.  In some cases vehicles may have even been sold but we still keep them on the project roll for posterity.  These articles are intended to share a little bit of the details with you of where some of the project vehicles that haven't seen the spotlight in a while are at in their evolution.  In this installment we check in with the V8s:  Project Mustang V8 5.0, Project Tundra, Project V8 RX-7, and Project Lexus IS F.


 

Project Supra Part 5: Thermal Coating, Wrapping, and Engine Assembly

by Pablo Mazlumian

A notable tradeoff to turbocharged power is the potential for more heat in the engine bay, leading to less-than-optimal power and increased turbo lag.  Find out how we minimize these fun-killers.  Our cylinder head and built short block also come together, and we show off the variety of MKC-tuned boosted cars.


 

Project Supra Mark IV, Part 4:  Turbo Components

by Pablo Mazlumian

Some of the most exciting products to feature are turbo components.  We choose some of the best turbo, wastegates, intake manifold and exhaust manifold components in the industry in pursuit of a streetable 800 whp with our 2JZ.

EXTREME ENGINE TECH: 2JZ-GTE Engine Build; Part 2 - Modified Oil Pump and Crank Damping

by Pablo Mazlumian

While we await our cool turbo components, we tackle the oil pump and crank damper after recently discovering that our previous motor could have seized catastrophically!


 

Extreme Engine Tech: 2JZ-GTE; Part 1 - More Strength, Less Weight

By Pablo Mazlumian

Known as one of the badest blocks that ever left an assembly line, the 2JZ-GTE found in the MKIV Supra is known for its ability to handle horsepower. Unable to contain ourselves, we build one, and make it even stronger.  We start by discussing our piston and rod selection.  The goal? A streetable 800 whp, daily-driven!


 

Project Tundra

Project Toyota Tundra Part 10- Suspension by King Shocks

By Mike Kojima

When we last left off, we had installed bigger brakes as well as wheels and tires on Project Tundra.  The big wheels left us with rubbing problems which we addressed by moving the fender liners and modifying the front crossmember.  We wanted to get even more wheel well clearance so we decided to raise our truck slightly.  The stock Tundra has a nose down attitude which looks a little funny so we wanted to raise the front of the truck by about an inch.  We did not want to build a Metal Mulisha bro mobile, just raise our truck a little and improve handling if we could.

To do this we decided to get a set of King Offroad coilover OEM replacement shocks.  The King shocks were designed to maximize performance on a stock truck at close to the stock ride height.  The King Shocks were designed to run at the stock rear ride height while raising the front about 3".
