SEMA is considered the largest after market automotive trade
show in the United States. Companies from all over the
world come to display their latest and best product. The
show is 4 days and I only have enough energy to walk one day.
The show is HUGE! Like every year, the show is hosted in
Las Vegas, Nevada. I heard there were at least 10,000
spectators or attendees. Talked to lots of companies and
Not too surprisingly, lots of Australians were
in the show. Autronics and Haltec just to name a few.
Below is a picture of carbon dioxide cooling system. Its
an inline cooling for turbo and supercharger. The cool
chemical passes through the 3" and cool air as it passes
through. Very interesting piece of gadget.
Here is something you don't see everyday.
This is called Cryo Charger. I was talking to the inventor
about this interesting item. This is a modified T3
compressor. Two braided lines are connected to the blades.
As the driver pressure a button and active the solenoid,
the high pressure gas will turn the compressor and create boost.
The creator of this product stated this will provide 5-6 psi for
a small 2.0 Honda motor. Interesting nevertheless.
Here is just a picture of a Turbo Honda Motor.
Here is a picture of John Force. There
were lots of celebrities attended.
Here is one of John Force's racing motor.
How would like to put one this in your ride? The exhaust
pipe is 2.5" each.
Yes! Good old Brembo. Those rotors
are HUGE! The diameter of those rotors is double my hand.
They are drilled and zinc washed.
Here is a top view a Cosworth F1 motor.
Its a V10 with only 3.999 some liter and rev up to 18,000 rpm.
Are you drooling now?
The picture below is the latest model of the
Nissan 350Z. AKA "Fair Lady" Turbonectics made a
single turbo kit for that model. I have a close up
opportunity to exam the details of this kit. All I can say
is that I am not impress with their design.
The picture below is the right side or passenger
side. They use the stock passenger side header.
Polished for the show. A cross pipe is used to connect the
passenger side to the driver side.
Here is a close up picture of the cross pipe.
The polished pipes made those kids drool, but I was not impress.
The question you might ask is why I am not
impress with their design? Well, this kit is for the lazy
man turbo kit. The below picture is the driver side
header. They used stock headers from the car and made 180
degrees pipes along with the Y pipe joining from the other side.
The pipes are very long and create lots of LAG. This type
of design can be accomplished by a local muffler show in about
Again, here is a picture of their wastegate
location. Its 90 degrees off the main exhaust pipe.
Again, its a design flaw.
Here is another picture of the driver side
header along with the complex pipings.
I forgot to take one of their flyer, but the
turbo looks like a T3/4.
Here is something that will make u drool.
4th Generation Magnusson Superchargers. M90 to M112 with
If you don't like the Turbonectics Single turbo
kit, here is something u might considered. HKS
supercharger. New design but little power potential.
Here is the back side of the charger. Its
a complex design with oem look.
Does this engine look familiar? Yes, its a
GS400 4.0 1UZFE motor. This motor was transplanted into a
IS300. This V8 also powered by a T66 single turbo located
at the passenger side. The turbo is considered a low
mount. The owner also have NOS.
This IS400 is using stand alone computer with
after market ignition system. I asked the owner details
about the ignition system, but he wont tell me. Do think
its a secret? lol. Looking at those individual
igniter we know what it is already.
Here is another familiar picture. However,
I would re-route the inlet pipe. Its getting all the heat
from the radiator
I asked the owner how much power he is getting.
He stated that he only running 6 psi and getting mid 700 hp.
I wonder is that with NOS or without NOS and the other question
is rwhp or bhp? Lets assume its bhp. From our
experience 6 psi can produce about 350-400 rwhp. Even with
NOS, I doubt he got mid 700 hp. That mean he must squeeze
at least 200-250. Oh well, what can I say?
Here is a nice little car for your daily driver.
Its a new 2005 Mustang. This is called Mustang GT-R.
Its a 5.0 DOHC rated 440 bhp. Not a bad car to have.
I was trying to get this model out of the
picture. I was interested in this Shelby concept car, but
unfortunately we have to take a picture with her.
Nevertheless, she blend right into the picture. This is an
updated concept car for the Shelby Daytona in the 60s.
Here is another view of her. No! not the
model. The car! lol
What would be a car show without hot chicks?
Here is one for your enjoyment. Stop drooling!
