2009 Nissan GT-R at Goodwood Festival of Speed - Video

Beasts from the Middle East



There is supposedly a car that has run 8.1@175 mph auto car.



Also apparently running a stock crank, has a Borg Warner 88mm turbo (eat T51Rs for brekky), runs on C16 and drives through a powerglide hahaha. By the owners apparent intentions, Heat Treatments GTR may need to do some defending.

Supreme Court on passengers’ rights against search and seizure

"Cops hate kids , kids hate cops , cops kill kids with warning shots.." - Ice T

Supreme Court on passengers’ rights against search and seizure
We'll get on our political high horse for a moment here, and say that Brendlin v. California, decided on June 18 by the Supreme Court of The United States, represents a bit of an about-face from the high court’s recent “security at any price” stance.

According to the text of the opinion, “Early in the morning of November 27, 2001, Deputy Sheriff Robert Brokenbrough and his partner saw a parked [1983 Buick Regal] with expired registration tags. In his ensuing conversation with the police dispatcher, Brokenbrough learned that an application for renewal of registration was being processed. The officers saw the car again on the road, and this time Brokenbrough noticed its display of a temporary operating permit with the number ‘11,’ indicating it was legal to drive the car through November.... The officers decided to pull the Buick over to verify that the permit matched the vehicle, even though, as Brokenbrough admitted later, there was nothing unusual about the permit or the way it was affixed.”

When Brokenbrough stopped the car, he asked the driver and passenger to identify themselves, and recognized passenger Bruce Brendlin as being wanted for parole violations. Brokenbrough arrested Brendlin and searched the car, finding methamphetamine paraphernalia on Brendlin's person.

After a lengthy appeals process with the State of California, the case made its way to the Supreme Court, where the ultimate decision stated, “When a police officer makes a traffic stop, the driver of the car is seized within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment. The question in this case is whether the same is true of a passenger. We hold that a passenger is seized as well, and so may challenge the constitutionality of the stop.”

The decision lists several points for protecting the passenger; most compelling to us is Justice Souter’s statement that, “The fact that evidence uncovered as a result of an arbitrary traffic stop would still be admissible against any passengers would be a powerful incentive to run the kind of ‘roving patrols’ that would still violate the driver’s Fourth Amendment right.”

The full text of the decision is available at The Newspaper, where Hemmings learned about this story.

CALIFORNIA BILL TO REQUIRE ANNUAL EMISSIONS TESTS FOR VEHICLES 15 YEARS OLD AND OLDER PASSES ASSEMBLY; MOVES TO SENATE

Gotta love California. Now they are trying to get you to test every year , instead of every two years once it gets to 15 years old. I think everything I own is over 15 years old.

Makes me want to buy a Hybrid - "emissions exempt" and put a carbed BBC in it driving the rear wheels.

SEMA article

CALIFORNIA BILL TO REQUIRE ANNUAL EMISSIONS TESTS FOR VEHICLES 15 YEARS OLD AND OLDER PASSES ASSEMBLY; MOVES TO SENATE

California legislation (AB 616) to require annual smog-check inspections for vehicles 15 years old and older has been approved by the California Assembly and has been sent to the Senate for consideration. The bill would also require that funds generated through the additional inspection fees be deposited into an account which can be used to scrap older cars. You may recall that in 2004, a new law was enacted in California to require the lifetime testing of all '76 and newer model-year vehicles. Pre-'76 motor vehicles would remain exempt under AB 616. The bill has now been referred to the Senate Transportation Committee and will be considered on June 26. For more information click here. For details, contact Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.org.

E85 stations up 61% to more than 1220 locations

E85. Our ethanol plan to lessen the US reliance on foreign oil. Sounds like a good short term plan. I like E85 as its about the equivalent of 105 octane fuel. It does get a little worse gas mileage , but its only 15% gas , so it gets a lot better gas mileage , but less overall mileage.

I still think we only have two stations in California. One in San Diego , one in San Fransisco area. Both on military bases. Go California Hydrogen Highway. Our California fuel is already 10% ethanol , why can't we get some good E85 to play with ?

VQ35 supercharged S13

Www.vqswap.com S13 Vortech supercharged.



2009 350Z


The guys over at GT Channel got a hold of a picture of the 2009 Z. Looks good. They are saying upgrade to the VQ37VHR. Sounds like a good thing. Everyone needs another 50 whp, which it should do like the G37 coupe mentioned a little further down the blog.

Not so sure on the wheels , they look a little like some super sized Eneki blades from the 1980's.

Highest AEM RB26 horsepower so far ...



AEM forums

We just finished tuning our Drag GTR32 on the Dyno and we manged to make 1025RWHP at 32psi shocked grin. i will post the Dyno sheet very soon. i think this sets the recored for the AEM EMS GTR user and proves the capability of the AEM EMS.

Husam,

MC-PERFORMANCE



1- 2.6L Engine with Forged 87mm Pistons and H Beam Rods.
2- Stock Nissan Crank
3- 1600cc Injectors X 6
4- AEM EMS
5- AEM 5 BAR MAP Sensor
6- 80mm DBB Turbo
7- HKS DLI
8- Custom 295 Duration, 11.6mm Lift Cams.
9- Open 4in D/P.
10- Single Throttle Intake.
11- Supporting Fuel System
12 - Tomei oil pump

By the Way,

We finalized the tuning of the Car on the Dyno Last night and we made 1065RWHP


Great power from the setup. I thought it would take more turbo , and more boost to make this kind of power. Husam said that on the road the car was making good boost by about 6400 rpm , the Dynojet wasn't loading it enough to see spool earlier. Its where I want to be with my 1045 build. I just might do some slightly different things.
