It all started at about age 7 when my brother bought me my first Hot Wheels car, an 82' Olds Cutlass Hurst with a chrome paint scheme. I thought it was the coolest thing! I was really bit by the go-fast bug when I was an MECP certified installer for one of the big box retailers. At the time I had a 99' Prelude Type SH that was heavily modified with suspension ground effect, etc. so it looked fast sitting still. The problem was that in reality it was slow! Every modified car that pulled up to the light wanted to race me. Eventually seeing nothing but taillights got old quick so I wanted more and the rest is as they say history. My thirst for automotive knowledge lead me to an opportunity to work for the largest speed parts mail order and retailer in the country. I loved it so much I wanted to know even more so after a short time I took a break and went to tech school and ended up turning wrenches at the local Nissan dealer only to return to the after market industry with the same retailer. Don't get me wrong I love anything that goes fast, but my first love is Classic and Pre-90s RWD Japanese cars. There's just something about the sound of Mikuni carbs on an in-line 4 or 6cyl engine! In fact, I'm currently in the process of building a 1986 Nissan 200sx. I've already removed the 1.8L turbo to swap in a Japan only SR20DET engine I built in my garage with .020 over CP forged pistons, Manley H-beam rods, Ishihara-Johnson crank scraper, and Crower intake and exhaust cams. The turbo has been upgraded slightly to a small frame T28 dual ball bearing unit as the whole build is centered around throttle response not HP. Yeah, I've built small block Chevys, tinkered with some LS based, and Ford modular engines but if you need to find the right turbo, need AN fittings, or anything EFI related I'm your man! People helping people...and their project cars!
