Deeds Not Words!!!
Naturally, everything must progress. The same rules apply to having power as well. First, it's minor bolt-on modifications, thinking a little bit more power would suffice. Then it's, "just a little bit more." Once boost is added to the mix, more boost is needed. Once that doesn't work, then a V8 should get mixed into the equation, and of course, with boost! LOTS OF IT! Nelson Racing Engines of Chatsworth, California has been boosting and building superior V8 powerplants since 1995. If you can imagine it, they can build it. The next best thing if you cannot afford to get a crazy V8 Twin-Turbo setup would be to add a forced induction kit to your existing setup. Normally, I prefer turbo setups, but lately, I've been looking into superchargers more than normal. I have tried both, and I like them both, but they have very different characteristics. I like turbos because of their ease of obtaining shear power. I love superchargers because of their lower maintenance, whining sounds, and of course, the way the power delivers so smoothly. Why did I show this supercharger? This is a Sprintex Supercharger from ATG, in Malaga, Australia. Their superchargers are small, helical twin-screw types that delivers power efficiently. The new Sprintex Supercharger kit for the Honda Jazz (AKA Fit). Godzilla came out for a guest appearance... ...in the Exedy booth. This monster is gorgeous. The much anticipated Scion FR-S is soon to be released. Watch out for future updates. I really hope the real one is close to this. The body lines are very sleek. RWB - RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF. RWB, on special order, creates only one Porsche per customer. Why did I say create? Watch some of their YouTube videos to find out why. Every car that has been worked on by RWB is a work of art. Lots of details and attention, no corners cut. Every car has its own attitude. Giovanna Wheels booth had this beautiful murdered-out Mercedes McLaren SLR. Majorly modified Lexus CT200h, intense. This Bentley was sitting over at the Nexen booth. D3Cadillac widebody CTS-V was at the Toyo Tires booth. Over 1,000 horsepower on this monster. Forgiato Wheels booth had some beautiful cars on display including this SLR as well as the flat orange Mercedes above. Fair enough warning emblem in this De Tomaso. This Charger was completely done. It was a guaranteed show-stopper. Fully decked out with Pioneer. Four subwoofers on the rear upper deck along with a pair of midrange speakers. This was my first time coming to SEMA. There was lots to see, loads of people to meet, and tons of things to do. The cars, the models, the companies. So many new products and vehicles. Definitely looking forward to doing it again next year.
