One of our clients is an avid autocross competitor in his Honda S2000.  

He came to us to fix his car and get it ready for competition.  Here is a short write-up he wrote after his first competition in the new setup, which he took first in his class.

Lately, PSI has become more involved with drifting and Formula D competition.  We have already sat down and talked with FD driver Kyle Pollard (link here) and now it is time to talk with a man behind the scenes, Jason Oefelein.  Jason is one of the owners and over the years, he has become more involved with drifting.  We sit down with him and talk about drifting.

Before heading to Pat's Acres this past weekend, Rob Primo stopped by PSI to have his Nissan 180SX tuned by Jason Oefelein.  Rob's competition car is undergoing work in preparation for the 2013 season so he drove the 180.

This past weekend we went out to Pat's Acres Racing Complex, PARC, for some grassroots drifting.  We were lucky to have a rain-free day in Oregon.  Kyle Pollard brought out his FD competition car, a Nissan Silvia, to have some fun during the off season.

We just added another 10 dyno run videos to our over 350 run dyno archive. We always have a wide variety of cars from Imports to American Muscle and both carb and fuel injected. Lately, we have been tuning a lot of Nissan 240's and a majority we have tuned with Apexi PowerFC. To browse the whole archive, click here, if not here are some of the new dyno runs.

A few weeks ago we had a 1994 Nissan S14 on the dyno. It had a SR20 with a T3/T4 twin-scroll turbo and Jason Oefelein tuned it with an Apexi PowerFC. After tuning, it put down 300 whp and 265 ft-lbs of torque at 19 lbs of boost. While the car was on the dyno, the owner's friend took the opportunity to do some filming around the shop. He put together this video of the trip to the dyno.
