Incremental Improvements With The 987

Car builds can spiral out of control quickly. With everyone, including myself (having the attention span of a squirrel these days), ideas and goals change quickly. To avoid that, I write you guys to hold me accountable. Not really, but it sounds good on paper. In this...

GM butchers the Corvette legacy

To no one’s real surprise at this point, GM is turning the Corvette into 'a brand' (similar to Hummer or Buick). And to launch the new Corvette brand, GM will add an EV Corvette 4-door, and an EV Corvette Crossover to the mix… giving posers across the country a chance...

My tuner friends have an overlanding problem

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve probably noticed the explosion of the ‘overland scene’. I guess Covid really fueled the primal need for people to get outta the house. Whatever the case, the camping & outdoor market saw numbers like never before. For the...

GM is not giving up the internal combustion engine

GM President, Mark Reuss, recently said that GM is not giving up on the internal combustion engine?? He said this during an investor day just before Thanksgiving break. But wait… REWIND… doesn't this feel like the TOTAL OPPOSITE of what GM has been touting publicly?...

VIP Nissan Cima – Well ok then

If we’re being honest here, I’ve always had a hard time understanding the why behind VIP cars. Coincidentally so has Alexander Richards. Alex & I are both naturally drawn to agile/quick cars. You know… rippers! Yet having said that, here we are, looking at Alex's...

The EPA targets Ebay Motors

Sometime low-key earlier this year, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) stopped Ebay Motors from selling any automotive products that could be deemed as 'emissions defeating'. That includes aftermarket hardware & software: Tuners, race exhausts, standalone...

The Integra that Acura NEEDS to build

This is the Integra that Honda/Acura NEEDS to build! Yeah yeah, I'm sure there are 100 reasons why Acura can't manufacture this car in 2022. All I'm saying is... f*ck all those reasons; build it anyway. •DOWNLOAD OUR FREE APP•  (APPLE) •DOWNLOAD OUR FREE APP•...

The Pontiac Vibe is back!

Can somebody please explain to me WTF is going on at Subaru? They release a new WRX for 2022… but you’re more likely to spot a yeti in the wild. Subaru killed the STi, their primo/halo/glory car. Then this week, they announce a 2024 Impreza redesign (pictured here),...

2023 TOYOTA Prius – lower, wider, faster, stronger

As a car enthusiast, here’s what you need to know about the new 2023 Toyota Prius. First of all it’s surprisingly well styled! The 2023 Toyota Prius is 2-inches lower than the outgoing model. And - it’s one inch wider at the rear hips. It’s also lighter & more...

Hello Cavalier: Porsche Cayman Introduction

These days a new or slightly used Supra or R35 car will cost you over 50k. If you're like me, that's asinine. I'm too poor to afford such a luxury. At the time, I had just sold my claptrap of a C5 Corvette, and was yearning for another car on my dream list... which...

Island Style Lexus GX470

Mishimoto Goodies | Civic Type-R

Mishimoto Goodies | Civic Type-R

Type-Rs are cool, because they really open up power-wise & hit a sweet spot with just a few mods: Intake, exhaust, intercooler, & tune. With quality parts, you’ll be in the 360-370hp range… and have a REALLY fun, well engineered car.  OVERHEATING, however, is...

Whiteline Suspension | Civic Type-R

Whiteline Lowering Springs At this earlier stage in the game, we’ve chosen to go with Whiteline lowering springs over immediately installing coilovers. Here’s why: The ‘R Mode’ on the Type-R is really good. Like… really good y’all. And there have been some really...

Thermal R&D Exhaust | Civic Type-R

For the exhaust, we went with Thermal R&D. We got their cat-back exhaust, downpipe, and catless test pipe. So from the turbo, all the way to the chrome tips… it’s all Thermal R&D… and its completely unrestricted. And man does it sound good! This is no doubt a...

InZane in the Membrane: Datsun 240Z

SEMA is a hard show at which to properly appreciate cars. On one hand - it’s a show overflowing with some of the best builds you will see all year. On the other hand - it’s that same overflow that makes it almost impossible to keep your wits about you. It’s almost too...
