This is a video that some may have and may not have seen its me vs a e36 bmw with a 6262pte running 20-22 psi. I got locked out of 3rd gear THREE times and caught up at the top of 3rd and passed him bay about a car at the top of 4th. that race was 2 close to call. if i was to guess his car was making anywhee from 450-475 rwhp my car was dialed in at 512 awhp but that nite had complications. enjoy! (im right lane finish line is the bridge).

I’ve made a promise what ever car i get next that i will modify has to have a “legendary” engine in it. meaning im not with the overly modifying of motors. Fuck sleaving, dry-sumping, block gaurd, ect ect. Pistons, rods, cams, boost, boost and boost, haha and maybe some juice. But seriously nothing pains me more that trying to see some turn a frail engine into a mild performing vehicle. its a waste of especially if budgets tight.
Now the only rule is that all 4bangers must be able to handle 400hp reliably, 6 cylinders 550 reliably.
Now ill start with the 4-bangers
-4g63 mitsubishi
-sr20det nissan
-A853 dodge/crysler/mitsu
-3S-GTE toyota
-ej20- subaru
That was in no specific order other than yes mitsu is #1 …. not biased its the truth. Now some may be wondering were you D,B,K series are on the list. Honestly they dont cut it. IMHO from what i know they wont cranks out as much hp STOCK FOR STOCK as the engines I’ve listed and still RETAIN reliability. Honda gets its for design, “They produce a street driven pump gas N/A engine that produces over 120 Hp per litre. Who puts three lobes on a Cam shaft. Who Controls cam timing live. Honds is smart the others are just strong”

Now the 6 cylinders the to two contenders 1st
-APB ,AGB, AZB- b5 s4 engines
-s54 -E46 bmw
-s50 – E36 bmw
-vr6 2.8 r32 ???? – vw jetta/gti
now thats is allll i can think of right now. I hope i didnt offend any honda people but we envy your amazing mpgs lol. so u have that in your corner.
modifying any engine for more that 50% of the power it makes stock that cant handle it is a motor you should stay away from on budget builds or unopened engine builds.

first and formost congrats again to Ghost who is now mr.Ghost haha. thanks Mikel and Andrew for keeping the site going after a flat line. For those who check the site and have read my bio im no longer keeping my car. this time im serious. its already started to part it out. it was a seriously long journey… the longest ive ever owned a single car (2yrs) and the most fun and headache ive ever had with one. 2 clutch ,3 tasmissions 1 set of tires, multiple exhaust tickets, 2 alternators , 2 fuel pumps , countless man hrs of labor, countless hrs and late nites of tuning and learning, and 2 starters i realize its become a cancer to my pockets. Not in the sense its not worth it , but that i cant afford to keep it or get it to were i want it to be, and considered the modifications too much for me to have it run any slower than it has. The car topped out at 513hp @ 7.8k rpm on 93 oct, 29-30psi. Fuel pump leaned it out by far not safe. But i had fun. driving a 500 hp car is def a thrill . Lighting up all 4 tires in 2nd gear amazing. and saying that i dont think anyone in my crew will hit that mark again soon (please guys prove me wrong) is defiantly an achievement. the next time i hit the road it will b bigger then a 3ltr engine. lol i=I’m aiming for a g35 or a ls2 gto. we will see. for now im done tuning (as Gotooning) it’ll be a hobby and a favor to my friends.

So this tranny rebuild is taking ALOT longer than i expected! mainly money probs. i when to for an idea on all the parts i would need to rebuild the tranny to a shep stage 3 specs with double syncro 2nd-5th gears evo3 gear ratios ect ect. now with out a 4 spyder diff it was already costing me 950 not including shipping… add 400 for the 4 spyder diff. still cheaper than a shep but still very expensive! Now on to the good news! i found a shep stage 3 tranny for an undisclosed price lets say a lot cheaper than the gears with out shipping!. Only problem is that its a 1990 tranny the only non upward compatible tranny dsm’s have . so were swapping the internals and we will be good to go!
By the way for people wondering what on earth i broke it was a 3-4th gear gear selector (hence me not having 3rd and 4th gear, bad 2-3-5 gear, bad 1-2, 3-4, hub and 2-5 sycros…. yea tell me about it.

We’ll start with some honda love This customer originally came to MAPerformance for engine assembly. They spec’d out, and assembled a beautiful longblock for him, and he decided he wanted a turbo kit to match!
– V-band schedule 10 ramhorn manifold
– PTE 46mm external gate
– 3″ pie-cut stainless downpipe
– Stainless dump tube

This next manifold was built for an Evo that they had originally set their stock evo ecu horsepower record with. The setup on this car, mated up to one of thier 2.4L’s yielded us 814hp, and 622hp at 41psi
– Custom top-mount schedule 10 T3 manifold
– Twin Tial MVS wastegates (a second one was added after the pictures were taken)
– Stainless 3″ downpipe
– PTE 6765 turbo

K swaps are one of our favorites and boosting them is just the icing on the cake. They had a customer looking for an easily accessible turbo location to mount his Precision 6262. They spent a lot of time routing this perfectly so there is no clearance issues at all and this runner design is sure to provide huge power gains up top….

Lastly, I’ll give you guys a peek at thier new Evo X OEM replacement manifold. Chopped, welded, and ported all in house

For those who dont know, dsm trannys SUCK BALLS! and im too broke to get anything that cost too much. So tomorrow im driving the car to LI using only 1st 2nd and 5th gear maybe reverse haha to kadeems house pull the tranny out get it to heavy so he can open it and rebuild it. Once thats done ill be back in action doing a street tune for 28psi the a track/race tune with a progressive boost raise from 28 to 32 by 8k rpm and then maybe if i can afford race gas a tune on 32 psi or more we will see stay tuned.
