We were impressed by the Corvette’s pace up Mosport's back straight (once we figured out how to turn the stability control off) and a lap time of 1:35 isn’t shabby. However, it’s been quite easy to identify areas where performance upgrades will increase the fun and reduce lap times.

What's that you see peeking out from behind the C-West front bumper cover on our EG Honda Civic project car? Could it be a front mount intercooler? Why yes it is! A Vibrant Performance air-to-air intercooler to be precise, but what's that needed for?

Though the G35 has an impressive equipment list on paper, it doesn't perform on the track the way we'd like. What is encouraging is that most all of the issues can be remedied with quality aftermarket performance products. Stay tuned as we turn project G35 from a great car on paper to a great car on the road!

The Integra Type R is capable and rewarding to drive in stock form, making it difficult to improve with aftermarket modifications, especially in the handling department. We performed back-to-back evaluationsto see if our planned suspension upgrade would deliver the performance improvements we hoped it would.

The US market DC2 Integra Type R is a special car for many reasons: is the first and only Type R designation sold by Honda/Acura in North America. The Type R pushed the limits of performance with a focus on lightness and stiffness with little concern for NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness).
