Subaru R-STi - JDM vs USDM: A Friendly Rivalry -- /TUNED
In the US, we never got the best Subaru of them all, the first generation WRX coupe, getting stuck with the fun-but-not-fast 2.5RS version. One of the more popular upgrades for those cars is the "R-STi" drivetrain swap. In the season premiere of Tuned, we look at two approaches: the USDM drivetrain swap, and the JDM drivetrain swap. Which is better? You decide.
"The Myth" of Panama's 900 HP Evo - /TUNED
It's the rainy season in Panama, and that means if we want to go fast,
we're gonna need some AWD performance. Fortunately, we've got the keys to
Race Lab's 900 HP Mitsubishi Evolution 7. Now if we can just find somewhere
to run it....
The Tire-Punishing, 400HP Turbo BMW E30! - /TUNED
The BMW E30 is quickly becoming a cult classic among the DIY, autocross,
and track crowd. And though the M3 version may be climbing so quickly in
price, soon no one will be able to afford one, the 325i, as it turns out,
has some chops as a great platform for tuning. Kameron Baker's homebuilt
E30 is just about the nicest one we've seen, and if you think it looks
great, wait till you see how it drives.
Ryan Gates's 311RS - or - How to Make a Better Evo -- /TUNED
The Mitsubishi Evo X is a great performer for the enthusiast on a budget,
thanks to its very smart drivetrain. On top of that drivetrain sits an
utterly terrible tin can of a body and an interior that seems to come with
the chassis for free. Enter racer Ryan Gates. He's been competing in Evo's
for years, and decided that he wants to build a better Evo. So he's
improved just about everything on the car. We try to do a full test of it
at Monticello Motor Club, but it doesn't exactly go as planned. Is the
311RS the best Evo money can buy? We try to find out.
Subaru Impreza 22B STI: The Original Rally Icon! - Ignition Episode Ep. 98
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago reviews the extremely limited
Subaru Impreza 22B STI. Created to celebrate the automaker's 40th
anniversary and multiple consecutive World Rally Championship wins, the 22B
is a wider, more powerful, and very special version of the STI. And when we
found out there was one in the country, we had to drive it. How does this
right-hand drive, decade-plus old car fare? This week, we find out.
Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

Rode with a friend last week in his 450hp STi and we raced everything we
could have fun with:
430hp Evo 9 - e85, stock turbo
~550hp 2011 GT500 Shelby
460hp Terminator swapped fox body
~500hp 3Dx Evo X
A WRX and a Z06 as well
Quite the night! :)
Oh... the anti-lag DOES work, damn.

The 450 HP Crawford Performance Turbo BRZ - /TUNED
We love the FRS and BRZ twins; they offer an approachable limit of
performance and phenomenal dynamics in an affordable package. And we
learned earlier this season that a bolt-on turbo kit will add to the FRS's performance
without taking away from it's character. But what happens when you double
the BRZ's horsepower and triple it's
torque? We find out.
The World's Fastest DeLorean - /TUNED
What happens when you throw a very large and power Grand National motor
into a 30 year old legend like the DeLorean? Thats what Matt Farah finds
out on this week's episode of TUNED
The Zero F**ks Given RX7 - /TUNED
Would you drive a car built by a teenager in his parents driveway with no
safety features whatsoever? We did, and now we'll tell you why this ugly
RX7 is so brilliant.
The 500 AWHP, AWD, Hillclimbing, Psycho Syclone - /TUNED
We end our fourth season with probably our favorite subject car of all
time, Adam Auerbach's GMC Syclone Hillclimber. This truck is what "Tuned"
is all about; customized in every way possible, 100% function with form
following suit. It's nasty, dirty, evil, and perfect.
The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.
Twin-Turbo Subaru Legacy: How JDM Can You Go? -- /TUNED
Dave Brown likes to do things differently. So, rather than build an R-STi
like everyone else, he spent over two years at his shop Fast of Westchester
turning his 1998 Subaru Legacy into a perfect JDM Tuner Car, right down to
the rare Twin-turbo engine. This is how
subtlety should be done.
