Lifted Civic Update #19: REV UP YOUR ENGINES!!!

Almost 5 months after we started, the CR-V heart transplant is a major success! About 2 months ago, we came to the realization that the B series harness was not going to work in our lifted Civic. We had to think creatively as there were no immediate options presented...

Forza Horizon 5 Review – An (Almost) Perfect Game

Let's get one thing out of the way first: Forza Horizon 5 is a fantastic game. It's actually so fantastic, it had me reminiscing about the last racing game that had me feeling this way. After much thought, I remembered back to the year 2005 when I first played Need...

APR / Dinan Track Day

Recently, we had the unique & mind-boggling opportunity to go ride in a bunch of APR & Dinan-tuned cars at Road Atlanta. Essentially like speed dating, but with badass cars & no baggage. Holy smokes...  To set the stage, this was a David Murry track day....

Wild Child – Michaels Bagged, Widebody Callaway C7 Corvette

It's not every day that we get to feature a Corvette. For the most part, it seems like Corvette enthusiasts tend to keep their vehicles on the stock side. At most, you'll see a couple modifications here or there. But there are some people like Michael Giaccone that...

The EV Movement: Part 2

Ben Battles wrote a killer article with optimistic happy thoughts in his EV coverage of SEMA 2021… and I'm gonna tell you why he’s wrong lol. This might get a tad political (generally speaking), but just remember, I didn’t do it… politics did.  The government needs to...

The AWD Civic is FINALLY showing signs of life. Since we have swapped over the twin cam B-Series on the lifted Civic, the car has not turned over. That is, until yesterday. After weeks of harness work and adaptation, it finally is turning over. This is absolutely...

And the Disappointment of the Decade award goes to…..

I had an old-school Honda buddy give me some advice once. He said he gave up on Honda as a company a long time ago, and life got a lot less heartbreaking. We all love the golden era of Honda. Honda/Acura created some truly innovative & remarkable cars that were...

You Got No Future Kid: LS1 Genesis Coupe

A lot of us can remember those key moments that hooked us into the scene. Yeah some of you were born into it, and it’s always been a family affair. But there are still those moments. Maybe when dad finally hit the ignition, after what seemed like an eternity of...

LS-swapped, turbocharged 3000GT… w/ fogs!!

The LS engine. It’s kind of the final destination isn’t it. I see it a lot in my sick & twisted line of work: If you keep any one car long enough… and you keep kicking that can down the road far enough… eventually it bumps up against an LS swap & comes to...

“It’s all about the journey, not the destination” That’s a quote I’ve heard many times, but a concept I didn’t fully understand until I joined the Overlanding scene. Overlanding gave me the ability to explore different areas near & far, at my own pace, all while...

Recently, Wooley and I got the chance to drive a new NSX for the weekend. While shooting a video on that car, we realized how it’s impossible to grasp the real feelings behind the car’s unreal numbers… until you’ve had 1st-hand seat time. And frankly, for a lot of us,...
