S2K Gone Wrong?

When it comes to modifying cars, just how far is too far? I’m normally not the type to post up these kinda builds but this thing takes crazy to a whole new level…… Is this going a bit too far? Drop a comment below with your thoughts…

The crazy and sad thing about this S2k is that it’s got so much potential being that it’s from Japan and everything that’s on the car is authentic…..down to the Modulo front lip. If only it didn’t go full retard…..

The SSR Koenig Monsters would’ve been more proper on a Silvia…

Going beyond the “stretch.”

Normally I’d hesitate to use words like “ruined” or “broke” when it comes to other peoples’ cars but this thing is another story..

Phoenix’s Power Tuned TME EVO VI

The Tommi Makinen EVO VI is a reinforced, limited edition AWD machine that any normal car enthusiast would be happy with straight from the factory. But there’s always those few who would step out of the box and take things to the next level, even with a limited production vehicle. Enter the Phoenix’s Power tuned EVO VI TME.

The EVO V and VI’s are my favorites as far as exterior wise compare to EVOs of all generations.

The TME VI takes the aggressiveness to a higher level.

The Volk Racing G25 wheels goes perfectly with this car.

The real showcase of this car is most definitely the engine bay which features a Toda Racing 2.3L stroker kit, a HKS GTII turbocharger, various JUN cams and camshafts, and also the MIVEC head along with numerous supporting mods.

Interior is kept simple and functional.

Big Body Silvia

The Nissan Silvia S15 is probably one of my favorite Japanese sports car ever produced and it definitely have one of the most elegant and free flowing body lines of any car in stock form. But with every factory spec car, there’s always room for improvement and with the S15, only minimal exterior enhancement is required to make it look spectacular. With that said, however, this particular post features a S15 with a more “wilder” demeanor.

C-West is the name of the game here, and it looks damn good!

The C-West GT kit is one of the more rarer wide bodies for the Silvia as most tuners I see go for the Vertex and Origin kits. But I think a well executed C-West kit might just beat out the competitors.

I don’t think there will ever be a car that would look bad on Volk TE37s.

Voltex GT spoiler finishes off the rear end of the car.

Under the hood is a HKS GT-RS powered SR20 cranking out 400HP or so… perfect for street/track duties.

Interior is left simple with a Nardi wheel, Recaro SPG bucket, and a host of electronic gadgets to keep car vitals in check.

Rio Fully J’s

The J’s Racing Type S kit is definitely one of the most classic, best looking body kit out there for the S2000. Before all these new kits that came out, i.e. Voltex, Tamon, even ASM, the J’s Type S was the pinnacle of S2000 exterior and it still is today. This JDM Rio Yellow S is a great example of utilizing and executing the J’s Racing Type S kit to its full potential.

Advan Circuit Meeting 2015

Another weekend, another meeting. This is the way of life for car guys in Japan, and needless to say, I’m a bit jealous. I honestly think one of these days I’m just gonna pack my bags and head to Japan for a year or two and just really indulge myself in their automotive culture. Cause I’m not really about that hellaflush or mad camber kinda life, to me, I personally enjoy track and functional cars over others. You know, events like HKS Premium Days, Hyper Meetings, Attack Challenge, Advan Circuit Meeting, etc; these are the types of meets that I want to be a part of, and that’s just something we don’t have here in the States. But anyways, I saw these photos from the recent Advan Circuit Meeting, and sharing is caring!
