They said it couldn’t be done, so we did it. We built a 1,000+ horsepower B-Series engine. Had we been among the flock of misguided sheep looking to forums religiously, chances are that our engine combination would be very different. Following BAD forum advice would have likely resulted in missing the targeted horsepower goal while experiencing engine failures along the way. Taking a better path, we relied upon the engineering, engine building and engine development knowledge and experience that we have here at DSPORT. Since there is not another automotive publication in the world that has a staff with Champ Car,…

Our Issue #137 BNR34 Skyline cover car hitting the DSPORT dyno. STAYING THE COURSE Ashton Makenzie agrees with the motto above. “I always set my goals high for my project car builds,” he said. “For my current project, I wanted a car to be reliable, even when taking long road trips, while retaining all of the factory amenities. I don’t compromise on items like air conditioning and power steering, and I won’t allow obstacles to change my build path. My ‘ultimate’ streetcar had to look the part, in addition to having the power to back its aggressive appearance.”

Here is a first look at Infiniti’s latest offering into the premier sports sedan line with their 2014 Infiniti Q50. Introduced in 2003, the Infiniti G35 took on a luxury sport sedan segment already saturated with numerous European offerings. Over the last ten years, the performance of the G sedan never went unnoticed, with its underpinnings derived from the 350/370Z. For 2014, Infiniti looks to challenge its competitors again with a replacement for the G sedan, the 2014 Infiniti Q50. The Q50 offers two engine choices – a familiar 328-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 or a 360-net-horsepower 3.5-liter hybrid. All Q50s whether…
