2002 SUV Isuzu Axiom
















In 1993, Isuzu alone the car market, in favor of the truck/ SUV market, area the aggregation had met with bigger success. Isuzu had tried, and failed, to attempt with Toyota, Nissan and Honda as a full-line car company. But the 1980s, a time back all it seemed a car bare was a Japanese nameplate, were over. And the companies like Isuzu and Subaru aggravating to attempt bang with Toyota were hurting.

The Isuzu Trooper had been the Japanese Jeep Cherokee through the ‘80s, and the aggregation adapted with a cord of accepted SUVs, such as the Rodeo and the Amigo that helped put an SUV in every American driveway. But the aureate age of the SUV — back four doors on a four-wheel drive barter belvedere was a authorization to book money — is over. Competition has fabricated the cartage added competent, refined, and carlike. So Isuzu finds itself touting an SUV for its carlike features.

The Axiom’s angular, automated administration is a abandonment from the blowing brush-basher administration active on best SUVs. The added carlike attending is evocative of Cadillac’s accepted architecture theme, and the Axiom looks a bit like a abate Escalade, at atomic from the front. The 17-inch admixture auto are attractive, and abrasion tires with a carlike footstep pattern. This bit of accepted faculty improves on-road ride, handling, gas breadth and noise, at the amount of off-road capability.

Isuzu’s newest SUV retains the trucklike body-on-frame architecture of its predecessors, alike while competitors move against unibody architecture for its advantages in acerbity and amplitude efficiency. The alone accessible clue to the Axiom’s abstracted anatomy is its aerial floor. Combined with the low, collapsed seats, the Axiom’s leg allowance can feel cramped. However, the aperture frames accessible to the floor, clashing unibody designs that charge a aerial aperture axle to advance rigidity. With no lip to footfall over, the Axiom isn’t as adamantine to get into as its aerial attic would suggest.

Corvette GT1 Racing Car



















Winning this year’s copy of the world’s best celebrated sports car chase had appropriate acceptation for Corvette Antagonism because it marks the end of aggregation Corvette C6R’s run in GT1 racing. Corvette Antagonism begins its alteration to a all-around GT chic in 2010 that is chiefly based on accepted GT2 regulations.

The best acknowledged aggregation in American Le Mans Series history has won its chic bristles times in the archetypal 24-hour French ability chase (2001-02, 2004-06), above-mentioned to this year’s acceptable effort.

The antagonism goals of Corvette are cogent for GM because they advance abstruse innovations advanced for the aggregation which crawl bottomward to added assembly vehicles. Also, because Corvette has commonly been one of the added adorable ambassadors for the much-maligned American car maker, success for the sports car helps legitimize the aggregation adjoin all-around competition.

2010 Corvette ZR-1 Z700






























Hennessey Achievement Engineering is befitting themselves active accomplishing our clamorous animalism for alarming boundless amounts of application out of (or rather, into) our cars, accepting afresh appear their affairs to action a leaner, added focused adaptation of Chevy’s admirable ZR-1 Corvette for 2010. Hennessey makes the point that Porsche 911 owners accept the advantage of advance to a GT3 RS for clue day sessions, and Viper owners additionally accept the ACR. But what for ZR-1 owners with acceleration in their veins and holes afire into their wallets?

Well, that’s area the Z700 comes to the rescue. Added capacity and hi-res pics anticipate you afterwards the jump.

Only 24 examples of the Z700 will be produced. But anniversary one comes with a account of upgrades, the sum of which commands a wallopping $207,150 including the amount of the car. First, there is the binding bang in horsepower, from 638 to 705HP at the flywheel, while the accession of carbon cilia seats and auto abate all-embracing weight and alternating accumulation (the auto abandoned scrubs 60 lbs). HPE additionally gives the glossy exoteric added aerodynamic enhancements, including a Z-Aero carbon cilia advanced splitter, canards and rear spoiler, all of which add up to 300 lbs. of downforce befitting your buried on those across-the-board corners. Finally, a comfortable alcantara council caster and shifter nob circuit out the autogenous upgrades.

Now, anyone who’s followed HPE abundant knows how actively they booty their cars. Their flagship, the aberrant Venom Viper 1000 Twin Turbo, baffled the Bugatti Veyron in an all out head-to-head acceleration antagonism for Road & Track. So, it should appear as no surpise that HPE affairs to prove that their Z700 is bigger than the accepted car by aerial out to Germany after this year to exhausted the ZR-1’s Nurburgring lap of 7:26. Whether or not this little appellation will advertise added cars charcoal to be seen. But what is accessible is Hennessey’s attraction and affection for blame anniversary absurd car they blow to the acme of their achievement potential, and for that array of car-mania, we address them.

As far as the Z700 is concerned, though, whether or not the $120K exceptional over the abject car is able-bodied spent apparently depends on the owner. No doubt, all 24 cars will accept no botheration award fabulously affluent homes

2010 Chevrolet Corvette
















The 2010 Chevrolet Corvette is one of those cars whose acceptability precedes it, and in this case the acceptability abominably involves silver-haired Vegas types, gold chains, chrome auto and automated transmissions. But accuracy be told, the alone affair about the 'Vette that fits with this account is its blah interior.

Trust us: Driving is assertive back it comes to this American icon. Alike a abbreviate assignment abaft the caster will accommodate your thinking. The Corvette is asinine fast in any form, it sticks to the alley and it's added affable as a circadian disciplinarian than annihilation this able has a appropriate to be.

For 2010 there are alike added affidavit to sing the Chevy Corvette's praises. Launch ascendancy is now accepted on all manual-transmission models, a affection that will appear in accessible for demography the assumption out of eking out the best dispatch times. The new Admirable Sport copy -- an advance on the discontinued Z51 achievement amalgamation -- pairs the abject agent with different exoteric administration cues; a sport-tuned suspension; Z06-size wheels, tires and brakes; added advancing gearing; and a dry-sump oiling arrangement for models adapted with the chiral transmission.

For the ZR1, Chevy has added a adult Achievement Traction Management arrangement that allows drivers to baddest from bristles modes (Wet, Dry, Sport with Active Handling, Sport after Active Handling, Race) that optimize ability commitment for specific conditions.

One Corvette affection that hasn't afflicted is its ability ratings, which ambit from the antic to the absolutely absurd. Alike the abject 6.2-liter V8 cranks out 430 horsepower. But the Corvette does accept some antagonism that didn't abide alike a brace years ago. BMW's sweet-handling M3, for instance, has a starting amount that's not too far aloft the Vette's and provides a far nicer interior. Ford's Shelby GT500 is additionally abundant bigger this year.

As for the added big-ticket Corvettes, one arcade for the Z06 could additionally accede the Nissan GT-R and Porsche's bigger ambit of 2010 cars, including the Boxster S, Cayman S and abject 911. The ZR1, meanwhile, is alone a few admirable shy of one of our admired sports cars ever, the abstract Porsche 911 GT3.

Still, the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette is acutely a lot of car for the money, and its honking V8 will accompany a smile to its owner's face at every advance of the agent alpha button. Dye your beard argent and don a gold alternation if you charge -- test-driving a Corvette is account the effort.

2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe



















As one of only two Korean automotive journalists that I know, Korean cars have been a subject of soreness on the grandest scale. For years I've had to endure all the wisecracks, pokes and slurs about the design, quality and performance-or lack thereof-the KDM OEs had to offer. And sadly, for most part, they were right. There really wasn't anything I could do to defend my homeland's four-wheeled honor. It was like hearing a bad "yo' momma" joke, if my mom was blonde, severely obese and low on the IQ totem pole. But wait . . . hear that? Cue: rustling. That's the wind of change. Its name: the Genesis-Hyundai's codeword for their new rear-wheel-drive platforms.
2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Rear View
Admittedly, my Korean brethren did not invent RWD, nor is it a new technology. Like iPhones and MMS, Hyundai was a tad bit late to the party. I prefer to think it was for the sake of fashion-that, or like the process of Kimchee, the idea of a driveshaft and rear differential took some time to marinate. Popular Korean dish simile aside, the award-winning, sedan-form of the Genesis not only revolutionized Hyundai's perception as a brand, it redefined the luxury sedan market, offering options and amenities other makes would charge tens of thousands more for. Having never driven that Genesis, I can't tell you how it is, but I can say with extra-certainty the Genesis Coupe will rock your world harder than a sniff of extra-fermented cabbage.
2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Interior Shot
Available in two motor options, a V-6 and turbocharged I-4, in stock trim, the bigger six has the necessary power to move the 3,300-plus lbs of steel. On the track, the 306hp Genesis Coupe 3.8 hangs with the likes of G37s and RX-8s and the 266 lb-ft of torque breaks traction with just a pulse of the throttle. And these aren't arcane comparisons, but truths experienced at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Pahrump, NV-not bad for Hyundai's rookie player. Likewise, taken to SP Engineering in City of Industry, CA, the V-6 put down a respectable 261.6 whp and 237.6 lb-ft of torque.

It's not just what's under the hood, either. The Genesis Coupe's chassis has 24-percent higher bending rigidity than an E46 M3 and the front dual-link MacPherson struts and five-link rear give it precise handling. My only gripe is the steering wheel-while I appreciate all the wheel-mounted controls, the construction feels spongy. Nothing a little Nardi can't fix. That, and save up for some suspension and you have an instant drift machine. With a factory warranty. Not just any ol' warranty either, but one that covers the original owner repair or replacement on powertrain components for 10 years/100k miles. That's like having a decade's worth of Hyundai dealers acting as your personal pit crew.

As good as the Genesis Coupe 3.8 is, the turbocharged four . . . not so much. If the car were 600 lbs lighter and devoid of all the necessary safety stuff and fancy options such as the six-speed manual, A/C, cruise control, Bluetooth, CD player, keyless entry, and iPod connectivity, all included in the base trim, it would put the Genesis Coupe 2.0T in Nissan S13 weight territory and prove to be formidable, stock. But it's not. Because we, the consumer, desire safety and widgets, which the Genesis coupe is laden with, the 2.0T doesn't have the hp-to-weight ratio a sports car requires. Rated at 210 hp and 223 lb-ft of torque from the factory, our 2.0T filled with the recommended 87 octane (yes, 87-the turbo four is tuned from Hyundai for standard fuel) put down an impressive 191.4 hp and 221.1 lb-ft to the wheels on SP Engineering's dyno. Despite the underrated power, for non-enthusiasts (i.e., not you), the turbo-four will feel like a sluggish, naturally-aspirated big I-4 or small V-6. For enthusiasts (i.e., you), the turbo reeks of spicy, garlick-y potential. Starting sub $23K, the Genesis Coupe 2.0T is a RWD, turbocharged platform from the factory that's screaming at the top of its lungs: "Tune me, please!" Intake? Sure! Full exhaust? Yes, please. Boost controller? Go for it. ECU and tune? Why freaking not.
2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Tag Shot
But before you get started, one might want to start with the Track-equipped 2.0T. It tacks on the Premium trim goodies (power driver's seat, Infinity audio, sunroof, proximity key, HomeLink mirror) and adds 19-inch wheels with summer tires, Brembo brakes, track-tuned suspension, Torsen limited slip differential, HID headlights, fog lamps, aluminum pedals, aero wiper blades, rear spoiler, and upgraded seats, raising the MSRP from $22,750 to $27,500. But for true enthusiasts, there's the R-Spec. This tuner-friendly model keeps the Brembos, LSD, stiffer suspension, and 19-inch wheels from the Track package, strips some of the heavier options, and comes in at a competitive price (much less than the Track package), proving that the Korean OEs are finally starting to get it. And I couldn't be more stoked.

2009 Nissan Skyline GT-R Best Modification



















2009 Nissan Skyline Gt R Right Side Shot
Chances are you've never been to Romania. But if you're from certain parts of America, it would likely remind you of home. Its four distinct seasons render much of the year cool and wet-like that of the American Northwest. Dense vegetation in Romania's Carpathian foothills merges with farmland plains outside cities like Brasov in much the same as our Blue Ridge Mountains meet Appalachian lowlands in western Virginia. Dilapidated, forgotten-about industry in post-Soviet mining towns like Petrosani and Rosia Montana could blend seemlessly into the rural eastern-central Pennsylvania landscape. And while we might not have to deal with crumbling roadways that likely haven't been re-paved since the cold war, motorists in popular parts of Illinois, Arkansas or New York would be hard-pressed to tell the difference. Likewise, Romania is just about the last place on Earth you'd expect to find this GT-R treading ground.
2009 Nissan Skyline Gt R Front View
When I stepped off the plane in the land where this beast was created, I was met with entirely different conditions. The landspace was rocky and brown, the air dry and hot, and everything in sight had the artificial, pre-fabbed look of modern, rapidly growing Americana. "Welcome to Phoenix," my contact greeted me, "Home of Vivid Racing!"
2009 Nissan Skyline Gt R Engine Shot
"We got lucky and found a used GT-R three months after it was released," explains Dan Mermelstein, co-founder of Vivid, "with intentions to make it a clean, Wald-inspired Vivid Racing shop car for SEMA." The plan was to build the GT-R into a rolling showcase for Capital Forged wheels, Vivid Racing's talents as installers and tuners, and the potency of their Agency Power line of performance products. Once back from SEMA, it would pound the streets of Phoenix, repping the Vivid extended family at shows and track days, and at the local gathering spots. But then Count Csaba caught wind of it. "He was on the phone with us the very next day, negotiating build specifics and a selling price," explains Dan. When a foreign Daddy Warbucks offers to fund your shop's project car build, in the middle of your country's second-worst recession of all time-you listen to what they have to say. "His vision of the perfect GT-R was slightly different than ours," explains Dan, tactfully. But hey-who were they to argue?
2009 Nissan Skyline Gt R Intake Shot
Vivid's first step would be to alter the GT-R's appearance; a tricky prospect, considering the car had been on sale in the U.S. for all of three months. Importing genuine Wald aero components would take twice as long (with luck), and they weren't in any hurry to share their molds with Stateside competition. Dan's solution? Molding select portions of a Rieger Ford Focus front bumper onto the stock GT-R pieces (in the name of functionality-those bumper vents direct incoming air to the car's brakes), and joining Rieger E60 sideskirts with the GT-R's stock. The rear bumper was left OE, but risers were fabricated to lift the wing two inches off the trunk lid, and the whole car was re-sprayed flat red to separate it from its stock brethren, with flat black coats setting apart the roof, hood, wing, and newly added accents. Even the Capital Forged three-piece rollers were disassembled and given the treatment.

The main "problem" with modifying the GT-R really wouldn't be viewed as a problem at all by many-Nissan simply built it too well; dampening-adjustable shocks and 15-inch, two-piece Brembo rotors with six-piston calipers are fairly difficult to improve upon. In the case of the Vivid GT-R, they were left stock, but the car's stance was lowered and stiffened with Eibach Pro Kit springs-perfect for carving Carpathian mountain passes between Bicaz and Ceahlau. The engine, however, is a different story; the case can always be made for more power. The main wrinkle in increasing the GT-R's power is doing so without upsetting its delicate balance of tuning parameters. Fortunately, Cobb handles that problem with an Accessport featuring plug-n-play replacement maps that bump power in and of themselves, and allow for more even power to be made with the addition of bolt-on aspiration parts . . . like the Meisterschaft titanium exhaust and stainless mid-pipes, and Agency Power intake, intercooler piping and downpipes fitted to this GT-R-good enough for an additional 167 whp and 115 lbs-ft of torque.

2003 Acura RSX-S Sporty Tuning



















2003 Acura Rsx S Side View
This is more than a car, it's a four-wheeled illustration of the American Dream. If someone works hard, they can achieve their goals. And if someone wants their car painted Heineken metallic green-then adds blue, red and candy purple highlights-well, by golly, it's a free country.
2003 Acura Rsx S Main Shot
BK, 24, works hard, holding down two jobs in Charlotte, NC (restaurant manager/chef and grocery stock associate), toiling seven days a week. Full name Byung Kook Choi, BK always wanted an Acura RSX. It was his dream car while in junior high around 2002. After graduating, he went to a showroom and put money down and got this '03 RSX Type-S, stuffed with the K20A2 engine, pearl-white from the factory.
2003 Acura Rsx S Interior Shot
Before he got too involved with the engine, BK decided to augment the looks with a J's Racing Type S body kit. This consists of a front bumper, side skirts, a carbon fiber rear diffuser and a Type V carbon fiber hood. Further aerodynamic appendages include front canards with winglets, a front under panel, trunk lid and a GT rear wing-all fashioned from carbon fiber. For a final aesthetic flourish, BK went for Ings wide fenders and lit the JDM DC5 headlights with Ignited HID 8,500K bulbs, then got the whole shebang painted in Heineken green.

It was another friend who first suggested this hue. BK mulled it over for a couple of weeks then spoke to his paint guy, who assured him that it would look great. "I've never seen another RSX painted like it," says BK. It's doubtful anyone has.
2003 Acura Rsx S Engine Shot
A Hondata K-Pro ECU (tuned by RLZ Engineering of North Carolina) keeps another hand on the reins, choreographing a BDL fuel rail, RC 650cc/min injectors and NGK Iridium spark plugs for the internal combustion tango. With the dance in full swing, BK's engine now makes a claimed 298 hp at 7,800 rpm and 236 lb-ft of torque at a peaky 6,800 rpm. This is still with the stock compression ratio of 11:1.
2003 Acura Rsx S Bov Shot
A well-regarded upgrade to Honda's K-series engines is the fitting of IPS K2 camshafts and valve springs, so BK wasn't about to fly in the face of conventional wisdom here. He also hooked up an HKS muffler, three-inch KTeller exhaust and piping, and a three-inch test pipe called . . . what was that name again? Ah yes, Unforgettable. Before we forget, BK added a Mishimoto aluminum radiator, removed the ABS, air conditioning and power steering apparatus, then did a full wire tuck.
2003 Acura Rsx S Front View
Phase three of the build focused on the suspension, with Tein Mono Flex adjustable coilovers gracing all four corners, augmented by Function7 billet lower control arms, Progress rear anti-roll bar and tie bars, plus Ingalls camber kits at the rear. Because it's easier to get a great setup on a rigid-bodied car than one flexing this way and that (this car is tuned to be road-friendly because BK drives to a lot of shows, even going as far as Toronto), BK installed a J's Racing strut brace up front, a Next Miracle X Bar out back and Cusco carbon fiber side bars. These helpful additions complement the main stiffening event: a Cusco six-point roll cage finished in classic Cusco blue, to go nicely with the green paint. This cage was originally made for the DC5 Type R, which doesn't have a sunroof, so there was a little cutting and welding needed to make it fit right.
2003 Acura Rsx S Header Shot
If BK gets excited every time he adds an aftermarket part, he must have been beside himself when he obtained a set of ten-spoke, 18-inch Volk CE28N Time Attack edition wheels, finished in white and with a +35mm offset. He shod them with Dunlop Direzza DZ101 235/40 rubber and bolted them (with Project Kics Neo Chro titanium lug nuts) in front of brake calipers that have been powder-coated in dark candy purple. "They used to be red," says BK, "but I wanted something different." Okay. Concentrating on the stopping hardware for a second, it's an Endless big brake kit with six-piston calipers and rotors out front, stock single-pot calipers and Powerslot rotors in the rear, Endless pads, and Endless stainless steel lines.
2003 Acura Rsx S Spoon Sports Brace Shot
JDM: these are three little letters BK took to heart. He converted the car to right-hand drive. "This was the toughest time," he says. The dash is an authentic JDM DC5 Type R model, complete with center console and shift boot. The pedals are from an Integra Type R; the steering wheel is a 350mm Personal Neo Grinta; heck, even the windshield is JDM (courtesy of Edmun Laurea from Opak Racing).

1998 Toyota Supra Tuning Car



















Think of all the places you ability acquisition a 1,600whp Supra. We've got three: On a dyno at a TX2K highest-hp pissing contest; at any accustomed annoyance band aural a 50-mile ambit of MSP Antagonism in the Baltimore area, Titan Motorsports in Orlando, or L.A.'s SP Engineering; or on a bivouac en avenue to said destinations. It wasn't until we met Jamie Carter that we'd apprehend to acquisition one in Ohio, in the bizarre Cleveland suburb of Chagrin Falls . . . at an elementary academy soccer practice.

"I don't drive it on the streets regularly," Jamie clarifies. In abrupt adverse to some of his added rides that acquire alone apparent the pavement of accessible roadway-a 715whp Porsche GT2, 900whp Z06 'Vette, and 580whp S4, to name a few-he congenital this Supra accurately for the strip. In fact, it was Jamie's above MKIV Supra (a 1,135whp barbarian dubbed "Top End") that garnered the self-proclaimed adrenaline abominable and part-time soccer dad abomination in artery antagonism circles by assault about every car adventurous abundant to band up abutting to it. Eventually alone additional artery bikes would run adjoin the Supra, and they lost, too. After time, no one would chase him, save for a assertive calm beef car you'll apprentice added about later, and architecture a apparatus almighty abundant to booty it out meant architecture one that would affectation a austere blackmail to the accustomed acceptation annoyance antagonism community. The alone reasonable advantage would be to do aloof that. But the accommodation wasn't anchored until Jamie activate himself in agitation with authority. "My wife 'strongly urged' me to stop artery racing," he laughs. "What could I do?

Rather than body "Top End" into his dream clue threat, Jamie absitively to allotment with it and antecedent a beginning platform. His chase for a clean-titled, straight-bodied MKIV anatomy took him all the way to Florida, area a non-turbo, hard-top adaptation was purchased and alien aback home to activate modification. It was in solid active condition, but wouldn't break that way for long. Jamie blew its agent up the day he accustomed it. "I aloof can't accumulate my basal off the gas!" he laughs. By the end of the afterward anniversary the car was taken to Toledo, OH's Accelerated Performance, bald to the bald shell, media accursed from top to bottom, accustomed a competition-legal Gary Reese 25.5 cycle cage (with supports for a ammunition cell, parachute and custom pro-stock rear wing), and added to a rotisserie at World Class Finishes in Uniontown, OH, apprehension a abounding BASF Spectra Blue Mica colorchange. This was to be a abounding Artery Class dragster; a car that would absorb at-a-glance artery legality, yet still be able to put on slicks and run bottomward the big boys. Its rear fenders were accustomed a "mini-tub" to this extent-re-worked aloof abundant to fit 29.5x11.5-inch slicks, but still absorb banal autogenous trim.

Accelerated Performance-the boutique amenable for the conception of "Top End"-handled the new car's complete re-build. And this is area things get crazy, for added affidavit than the obvious: every allotment of the car was ordered new. The agent block and head, glass, ascendancy arms, autogenous plastics, every nut, bolt and washer, head- and taillights-as you see it here, no allotment of this car, save for the unibody, was included with it aback its aboriginal buyer was aboriginal handed keys aback in '98. Every banal allotment on the car was ordered new, from Toyota. The car's absolute body is estimated to acquire amount $200K, with almost $100K invested in restoration. The actual $100K was attenuated into the achievement aftermarket.

Accelerated Performance's Donald Summerton and Russell Maskey rebuilt the powertrain absolutely from scratch. A cast new block was ordered from Toyota, re-worked centralized by the Accelerated aggregation with a quarter-fill (in layman's terms: reinforcing the basal of the cylinders with a cement-like mixture) and machining to acquire half-inch headstuds and a Crower/Carillo/CP Pistons alternating assembly, for a final displacement of 3.4 liters at 9.5:1 compression. A factory-fresh butt arch was alien to Dave Localio of Headgames in Ewing, NJ, for a abounding chase port, Ferrea +1mm valvetrain and machining to acquire custom-spec Crane cams. Once aback on Accelerated grounds, the aggregation abutting the aggregate and adapted it with a Abounding Chase turbo assorted and Precision Turbo GT47-88 snail, and bogus about every added agent borderline from scratch: a custom assimilation assorted to abutment Bosch 150lb/hr ammunition injectors, a turbo-back exhaust, a Garrett-cored air-to-liquid intercooler setup, a ammunition corpuscle apartment a massive Weldon 2345 pump, and accouterments of the Peterson/Moroso dry-sump oiling system. Coolant, oil and ammunition curve were switched to Earl's or Aeroquip stainless-covered Teflon and elastic replacements, and the cooling arrangement itself was absolutely formed over; upgraded to an AFCO radiator, bifold Earl's manual coolers and Flex-a-lite fans-telling signs that added than aloof annoyance band assignment would be in abundance for this ride.

The banal anatomy base was scrapped-this car wouldn't be application all the amenities it was built-in with, so why accumulate abundant base to them? Instead, Russell Maskey and aggregation kept alone the all-important components, active them centralized application alone mil-spec components, and active a Motec M800 ECU and CDI-8 for agent administration and agitation duties, respectively. Application a ample turbo is abundant for authoritative big power, but inherent lag and poor burke acknowledgment could all but annihilate dispatch in a manually confused car. Thus, a custom Nitrous Express direct-port arrangement was bogus to advice ball the turbo, and the admirable Getrag six-speed manual was ditched in favor of a TH400 automatic, sourced from a '70-something Suburban and re-worked by Rossler Transmissions in Girard, OH. With the accession of Driveshaft Boutique Stage 6 axles and a TRD bound blooper differential, it forms a bulletproof drivetrain that allows the 2JZ's Accufab burke to break wide-open from the timberline to the traps.

Extreme Tuning Ford GT HP 790



















Red is declared to be the accepted colour of warning. US car specialists GeigerCars.de from Munich accept angry this accustomed acumen on its head, presenting their hottest attempt with clear ablaze blooming paintwork. The Ford GT "Geiger HP 790" is the third brilliant afterwards the Dodge Challenger SRT-8 (569 HP) and the Corvette Z06 Bi-Turbo (890 HP).

Karl Geiger`s latest conception lives up to its name: the cool sports car`s 5.4 litre V8 agent can ability a agitating 790 horsepower, an absorbing 240 HP added than its alternation equivalent. The antecedent of this access of power? Above all the backup of the series-produced 2.3 litre with a added able 4.0 litre compressor which blasts the agitation alcove at over 1.25 bars. Larger burke valves and a sports clarify were additionally installed to accumulation the eight cylinders with alike added beginning air.

2011 Ford Mustang may get up to 30 mpg


The base model of the 2011 Ford Mustang will come with nearly GT power and could get up to 30 miles per gallon in highway driving, Ford Motor Co. announced today.

Ford will debut a new V-6 engine for the sports car this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show and says it will give the basic Mustang power to rival the performance-oriented Mustang GT, which has a V-8 under its hood.


The 3.7-liter powerplant, which replaces the 4-liter V-6 now in Mustangs, will produce 305 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque while also offering better gas mileage.

Ford projects the engine will get 19 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The 2010 Mustang's 4-liter engine creates 210 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque, while achieving 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.

The new Mustangs will be available at dealerships in the spring.

Stephanie Brinley, an automotive analyst at Southfield-based consulting firm AutoPacific Inc., said the additional power catches the Mustang up to the V-6 Chevrolet Camaro and should help it stay at the top in pony car sales next year.

"The V-6 Mustang is Ford's best-selling Mustang and this is a lighter car, so it should feel faster," she said. "For people looking for these kinds of cars, Mustang is still the place to go."

According to Autodata Corp., which compiles car sales statistics, Ford sold 56,469 Mustangs through October, down 32.4 percent from the same period last year.

The Mustang remains about 8,000 units ahead of the Camaro, which was reintroduced this year by General Motors Co.

The new powertrain suggests that the GT will have to show some big improvements soon, Brinley added.

The 2010 GT with a 4.6-liter V-8 produces 315 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. It gets 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

By raising the base model's vitals and performance level, Ford likely will have to do the same to the 2011 GT, though the carmaker has not announced a new powertrain for that car.

The V-6 Mustang will come with a six-speed automatic or manual transmission, dropping its well-used five-speed.

Ford has promised to include six-speed transmissions on 90 percent of its vehicles by 2013 in another effort to make its vehicles more fuel efficient.

The new Mustang V-6 engine, built in Cleveland, boasts a number of high-tech features such as variable camshaft timing and variable valve overlap to improve the car's emissions, fuel economy and power. Ford has dubbed the system Ti-VCT.

"Drivers are going to notice improved low-speed torque and increased fuel economy and peak horsepower," Jim Mazuchowski, Ford's manager of V-6 powertrain operations, said in a news release. "Plus, there are benefits they won't notice, too, such as reduced emissions overall, especially at part-throttle."

Ti-VCT can lower the engine's emissions by controlling the NOx -- nitrogen oxide -- and hydrocarbons.

Ford will also announce at the Los Angeles show that it will introduce a performance package for the V-6 Mustang.

It will include a different rear axle for faster off-the-line acceleration, struts, stabilizer bars and brakes from the GT, unique badges and other features.
