S14: Enthusiast’s Ride

This S14 isn’t the prettiest S14 but it stood out to me. Being from across the pond it’s probably just another enthusiast’s ride but i thought it deserved some face time on BobsYrUncle so here it is. This S14 definitively looks driven. No shits given type of driving because of all the battle scars but that’s the reason I liked it. If I could get more stats about it that would be awesome but for now all I can show you are the pics.

Enjoy.

240SX: S13 Stunner

Trolling the web I stumbled upon this gem S13 240sx. It’s a little different from one side to the other which caught me by surprise. Dudes running 2 different wheels! Which isn’t bad… and I admit I’ve done it before while being sponsored by wheel companies. Overall car looks great Simple but with that added attention to detail is where it’s at. Check it out and you be the judge.

Product Testing at RS*R: RAN*UP

I know I haven’t talked about my personal car on here much but I’ve been keeping it low key. Total “budget build” meaning if it ain’t a hook up, free or “sponsored” it ain’t happening on my car haha. An luckily it’s been working out and i’m happy with the results.
RS*R contacted me and talked about testing their product RAN*UP and at first i was like hell yah! Of course who would turn down anything from RS*R!? But when i found out that it was a oil additive i was a little weary at first. Staff there told me more about the product and totally sold me on the benefits of running RAN*UP in any car. Enhancing engine efficiency and reducing friction through out all the lubricated parts of the engine while increasing power…  When he said he can prove all this with dyno runs and numbers. I was in for sure.

While i was at their facility who wouldn’t want to take pics. So here’s some random shots before we got started.

After talking about specifics with the engine and what not.. We got to adding fresh oil in the car and started preping the car for the base run on dyno.

After fresh oil and everything was looked at and good to go they proceeded to load the car on the the coolest dyno i’ve ever seen. 4 wheel, length adjustable and super hi-tech.

Baseline dyno started now! 

After a few runs and getting the average of the runs they determined the RWHP making sure the numbers were not chosen from the highest pull or lowest. Which was pretty cool. Coming from the IS build we always went with peak RWHP. But, anyway. After the base run we break’d for lunch, let the car cool and restart the dyno runs to get more consistent numbers.

After Lunch was time for RAN*UP !!! (darn blurry pic)

Back to work on the dyno…

Dyno graph showed 3HP gain and I was stoked to hear that the product worked that well. Below you see the TRQ increase and HP increase from the orginal runs. (note the car has been set up with a lower compression for boost “someday” in the far far away future)

End result RAN*UP is proven! Definitely worth it and something worth trying.

 

 

S13: Wrench time

Today I realized that I haven’t posted in a week sorta neglected the site and I apologize for the lack of updates. I wanted to post up something a little different from the show cars, drift cars or cars with parts some just drool over. Rather, I wanted to share a more of a simple everyday build that someone spent the wrench time and put it together at home while still having street appeal and a track look. I’m not sure if this one hits the track but it looks purpose built.  SR20 under the hood, fitted TE37’s and a clean kit. Very nice. I would probably do without the stickers on the windows but everyone has their own steez.

Enjoy!

Feedback is always appreciated.
