importfest 2013.

It’s a little late for the Importfest 2013 Toronto coverage, but I’ll start off with the pics I took from roll in the day before the show. We ended up getting a really nice spot this year… and with James in the Tuner Battleground competition, we actually ended up with a lot of space to have a pretty cool set up with the cars.

Elevated guys with super clean bays

Curtis’ S14 is super clean, hard to find ones that aren’t beat to hell.

Navin’s F20/F22 (not too sure) swapped Trueno.

And a trio of well done S2000s at the Nextmod booth. Starting with Jacky’s Voltex kitted, HKS supercharged one up above. And Brian’s Powerhouse Amuse GT1 widebody, turbo one below.

And a Tamon widebody kitted one that debuted at Importfest 2013 Toronto, with Jenvey ITBs.

I was really feeling this iS300 that was at the show.

Kevin is sporting a new Runduce lip as well on his Varis kit.

Varis widebody Evo X….one of the many new builds that came out this year.

james’ updated look [s2000].

So you probably remember James’ Laguna Blue Pearl S2000 on the TE37SL’s. Let me remind you though:

It was a really good look. But he decided to change it up when he found someone selling a set of über rare GTR spec Desmond Regamaster EVOs. I think I would’ve done the same thing in his situation, given my weakness for rare goods.

Titanium risers on his Voltex wing:

a plain brz.

Well… sort of plain anyway. Shot my friend’s car awhile back as well and never ended up getting a chance to post it. It’s pretty plain exterior wise, KW V3 coilovers, some other suspension tidbits and bushings, intake, Perrin exhaust, and Gram Lights 57xtremes. However, he recently picked up a Vortech supercharger, Perrin oil cooler and Koyo rad. Should be a good sleeper when it’s all on!

voltex s2000.

Shot this awhile back and never got around to posting it after Illmotion released their little feature on it. Jacky’s been building his S2000 for awhile, and it’s progressively gotten better and better. After going all out with the full Voltex kit, he surprised yet again with the fairly recently released HKS supercharger (I remember seeing it released at Tokyo Auto Salon in 2012). I don’t think there’s anyone other than Evasive running this kit in North America. Not sure why, it’s a beautiful kit. Perhaps the power that it makes and the price tag has something to do with that. But being a JDM parts whore that Jacky is, I can see why he got it.

Jacky’s pretty big on bringing his car to the track, so according to him, the power level is just right (350whp). He also pretty much drives this daily during the summer. Pretty hardcore.

Since the shoot, he’s changed his exhaust from the Powerhouse Amuse single to Powerhouse Amuse duals. He’s also swapped his Tein coilovers for Evasive spec Eibach coils with external reservoirs, added a J’s Racing roll center adjuster, Craftsquare mirrors, and some other things here and there. The modding is non stop.








been awhile.

Whoa, it’s been awhile since I posted something. It’s been a busy month, with a close friend’s wedding, multiple car shoots, and some other personal things to deal with.
So what do we have… I shot Dan’s NSX a few weeks ago after he dialed in the coils and got his wheels on (though after the shoot, he fine tuned the suspension again).

Fantastic looking car, and he claims it’s the first NSX with concave fronts on stock body. I can’t really back up that claim, but there’s probably not a lot of NSX owners who are willing to bastardize their car for fitment lol.

NSXs are quite mesmerizing  when they’re rolling, kinda hard not to just stop and stare. It *SEEMS* like Dan will be keeping this car for awhile, or so he says… but we’ll see what happens after the winter this year haha.

The car came with Gruppe M exhaust and Taitec headers, pretty awesome pick up indeed. Pretty minty for a car that’s just over 20 years old now and has gone through a number of owners.

Also got the opportunity to shoot DC’s bagged GTI, after he got a set of LMs on.

After playing around with his bag riders setup with autopilot v2, I think I’m pretty set on getting myself the same setup. Comparison shot between H&R sport springs and his bags below. lol. Makes my Passat look stock.
