Damn It These Are Dope

01 Like the Doublemint twins, here's a two-for-one deal we can really get behind. Imagine a tablet PC (read touchscreen notebook you can scribble on like a pad of paper) that can also double as a fully-featured 11.6-inch laptop. Sounds crazy, but this curious hybrid works as a l.G-pound, Linux-powered handheld slate on its own, yet functions as a 3.71b Intel Core 2 Duo system running Windows 7 when docked. The only downside the Pad. www.lenovo.com 999 Never mind that there are sixty million...

Found On Rally Dead

Does anyone else think Ken Block is an idiot I cannot believe he switched from Subaru to Ford Subaru makes the best rally cars, hands down, period. Not only that, but Subie has stood by Ken's side all the way X Games, his gymkhana videos, Rally America the whole nine. And now I hear his Pee-esta broke halfway through its first rally. WTF Smart move, Ken. Way to think it through. -Andrew McDonnell via importtuner.com Well, we gotta hand it to you, John Gorman's All-Trac is definitely quality....

Heritage Car Collection

Inside the Nissan Heritage Car Collection (part i of z) JUNE20IO ISSUE 135 IMPORT'TUNER MAGAZINE A cross between an automotive museum, Barrett Car Show, Antiques Roadshow, and history lesson, my experience inside the Nissan Heritage Car Collection was both profound and spiritual in the most exclusive way. The thing with Zama (as it's often referred to) is that it's not open to the public. While the cars are all pristinely showroom maintained (and supposedly all in running condition), it's not...

Interview By Carter Jung Photos By Carter Jung

Besides being able to look up traffic reports, used C.I. Joe pricing, or epic beard man fights, it has been the greatest enabler of stalking. Prior to the web, digging up 411 on a person required powerful binoculars, rummaging of trash, and questionable ethics, ail of which could lead to potential legal repercussions. Now, all one needs is an ISP, Google, a first and last name, and voil , instant 100-percent legal info. Thanks to Myspace, Facebook, Friend-ster,...

Turbo Vs Super

With our Greddy twin-turbocharged 370Z outputting 136.4 whp more than Dai's HKS GT-supercharged 350Z, comparing the forced induction options of each seems like an apples-to-oranges comparison at first glance. But the torque differences only 37.4 Ib-ft in our favor tells there's more to be considered. In the spirit of competition, Greddy USA sent over dyno data generated when tuning their 350Z bolt-on turbo kit at low boost on a test car, comparable to Dai's 350Z outfitted with the HKS GT...

Lean On It

1 own a '00 Celica with basic bolt-ons that include an intake, header, and exhaust. The car has 125,000 miles and has been flashing a lean cylinder bank 1 check-engine light (CEL). My friends and I sprayed soapy water around the engine while running to see if there's a vacuum leak, but the results were inconclusive. The engine doesn't stall, but I'm beginning to suspect the problem lies with a faulty 02 sensor or a bad catalytic converter. I figured I would ask the pros before buying any...

Z Track Test

Even with the massive Greddy Type 29 front-mount intercooler snapping up the Z's entire radiator inlet, coolant temperatures stayed within acceptable tolerances. Oil temperatures were the problem. Even stock 370Zs overheat their engine oil after a few laps on the track, noted Tyler. I could get about one, maybe two fast laps in before the turbocharged Z got too hot. And the differential was getting hot by then, too. This time, the work-around was a bit more...
