Beyond the popular two-tone treatment, Andy Wong’s ’05 Infiniti G35 Coupe took a departure from what we typically see around here. Usually, heavy audio builds have no power adders and although this one doesn’t have a twin turbo setup, it does have a supercharger.

When audio builds come with two-tone paint jobs and two-tone interiors you know they mean business. Especially when they rock it in cream and orange like my personal favorite frozen treat, the Creamsicle. With a tangy orange interior and smooth van [ … ]

Before we got into the specs on this article, we had to watch the YouTube video of Fishman walking through his install. A grand tour through his ‘Fish Edition’ Expedition yields more surprises than we ever anticipated with hidden compartments, motorized trays and fascinating technology on board.

If you are nuts for car audio, Vegas odds say that you have heard of this guy before. Known as “Fishman” by his peers and named Dave Riveria by his parents, he’s an installer in it for the long haul. Fishman is bent on building one-off masterpieces [ … ]

The exterior and interior of the project is a blend of traditional crime-fighting Spiderman and his evil twin who is bent on helping crime rule the city! There is so much reference to the Marvel comic character that we’re surprised a team of lawyers hasn’t been sent over to his house to disassemble this build. But doing that would leave DeLuca broken since he has chewed through $75,000 and more than six years working on this project.

With no end to the Scion craze in sight, there is always something new on the horizon. We have seen drag Scions, drift Scions, Hot Rod Scions and even some with wooden paneling like the Fords of back in the day. So when Harvey DeLuca’s insane Spide [ … ]

Built upon a strong trend in Japan, the Five Axis Scion xB DJ 2.0 integrates elements of the BoSoZuKu style. The cartoon-esque widebody classic cars, with outrageous racing themed stripes and negative offset wheels were once considered outcasts in the JDM tuning world.

If you are serious player in this game, this car and the style that it represents should need no introduction. Built upon a strong trend in Japan, the Five Axis Scion xB DJ 2.0 integrates elements

When your average enthusiast with a few bucks to throw around gets a hold of a Subaru they can really make some jam easily. But when you are an enthusiast and have the backing of major aftermark [ … ]

The most striking feature of this vehicle is the cutting edge exterior. The outrageous sharp lines are easily as current today as they were five years ago. The sinister satin black paint scheme may appear common today but this was one of the first whips to rock it.

The progress of our quirky, fast-paced tuner scene was rapid during the past two decades. If we can assume the trend really kicked off in Cali in, say 1990, we are talking about 20 years, and the growth has been exponential. There are many people who [ … ]

At the core of the story is that Injen wanted to prototype a V6 intake, which of course is #00001 of the production run. The team also added an Injen dual exhaust with striking titanium tips poking out the back. The motor was filled with some Amsoil 0W racing oil to keep the internals ready for some high RPMs afforded by the Poweraxle ECU reflash and the RPM lightweight crank pulley.

 

Being away from home in the military is probably the toughest job out there if you can call it that. It’s more of a new life away from friends and family in a foreign land where nothing is familiar. The military takes careful measures to ensure th [ … ]
