K-Powered - Under The Hood - Import Tuner Magazine
We dedicated this monthâ??s issue to the K-Series engine and collaborated with Honda Tuning magazine to pay tribute to one of the most popular engines of modern society.

No vehicle within my 4½-year tenure of working for Import Tuner has required as much time and devotion as the masterpiece you see in front of you today. The daily grinds of hardship were magnified tenfold as 2NR and Skunk2 Racing joined forces. We shed and shared the same blood, sweat, and tears, transforming an average, run-of-the-mill Acura RSX Type-S into our latest and greatest creation.

A pair of Jim Wolf Technology cams and sprockets find their way into this Nissan 240SX. Follow along in our step by step installation.

My Project S14 has been in its â??buildâ? process for the past six years of ownership and I haveâ??for the equivalent number of yearsâ??said my next step was motor work. It wasnâ??t until recently that I was able to retire the car from daily duty and put some serious thought into the direction I want to go with the car. The decision to turn the car into a fully race-prepped one allowed me to consider more serious engine modifications.

We purchased Mitsubishi DiaQueen LSD gear oil and spent our weekend flushing the system. Fun times!

I took a break from working on my own car to focus on the fiancéâ??s EVO. Yes . . . I know, I own a Subaru but in my defense, she bought the car before we met. The transmission and differential fluids were well overdue for a change. We purchased Mitsubishi DiaQueen LSD gear oil and spent our weekend flushing the system. Fun times!

Project Subaru EJ205 – Build Log

Follow along as we continue our EJ205 build from our Dec. ’11 issue.

Subaru owners are an interesting bunch; they either love or hate their cars with a passion. I find myself indifferent and caught in the middle of the mix. On one end, I love my â??03 Subaru for a number of reasons, including its factory turbocharged, all-wheel-drive platform and readily available aftermarket parts. I even own an â??05 STI so it goes without saying: Iâ??m a Subie loyalist through and true. So when I experienced engine problems for the first time with my â??03 WRX years back, I was a bit flustered. Whyâ??s that you ask? I had grown up building Hondas and Acuras for most of my teenage years and being new to the Subaru world, didnâ??t know squat about the boxer engines as well as what to look for when problems arose. But, as time progressed, I became more familiar with the EJ205 engineâ??s internal workings as well as its pros and cons.
