After a lot of planning and coordinating Eddies (@Majestik_Unicorn) fully rebuilt Nissan GTR is now done and unveiled at The Sema Show. Every body panel has been replaced with a true molded widebody design by Kreme Developments, Brand new wrap with the help from Colorbomb Arizona, New wheels from Rohana Wheels, Brand new R888s from Toyo. This beautiful beast stole the show this year at the Rohana booth, stopping everyone in their tracks to walk around the car and take photos. This car has one huge transformation.

For a while now, fundamental turbo design has been pretty stagnant.  To get more power you need a larger turbo, which in turn creates unwanted turbo lag.  A larger turbo means larger piping is required… So on and so forth.  Well… Turbo By Garret has dropped a BRAND new turbo design where less is more.  Allow me to introduce you to the Garrett New G Series!

It was at that moment, we instantly knew it was show time as the first car left the start line and headed into the first turn of this long drift layout. Our local Arizona drivers meant business claiming the top two positions. Qualifying 1st with 91 points was Austin Kregle in his 1995 Nissan 240sx S14, fresh with a Toyota 2JZ-GTE swap. Kregle worked up until the last minute to ensure his car was properly prepped for Round 1 of competition. With almost zero seat time with the new powerplant, Kregle proved himself a skilled driver as he blazed the track with style and set the bar for the remainder of the competition. For second place qualifier, Nick Gross with his fresh S14 set a strong score of 88 points. After battling engine gremlins in the last rounds of competition in 2016, Nick came back even more determined to earn a shot at [...]

Sure, you can change your fuel to race fuel – or E85 – you can add meth injection, spray NOS, or maybe add a supercharger to your already boosted car! I mean, lets be honest here… There’s only so many ways to invent the wheel.

The folks over at Rally Sport Direct have been working with Cosworth and Steam Speed to create a compound build on the NEW FA20 engine that is now available in the Subaru WRX.

What makes the new FA20 engine different from the EJ25?  There are many differences, but the main difference with the Steam Speed FA20 is that the turbo is located near the bottom of the front of the engine rather than [...]

With well over 90 cars in attendance, Pizza and Pistons Part 3 was a huge success!  “HIN was nothing compared to this!  This is awesome!  There are way more cars and its free,” one of the spectators said last night at the show.  Cars began rolling in around 6:30PM and kept coming.  At one point the line to get in was out onto the street.  The parking lot was packed and cars began lining up and down the aisles.  The DJ was playing some great music and spectators could be seen dancing around and enjoying themselves in the great atmosphere at Humble Pie.  The restaurant was packed but the service was excellent and the food was delicious.

Several vendors were at the show and raffle tickets were available with winners receiving Free Detailing from D&D Customs, Stickers from Beyond Limitz Design, JDM Fresh air freshener kits, [...]
