Cleanest 240SX S14 Revealed

Today I got a new-to-me 1996 Nissan 240SX from Bring A Trailer. The car has a mere 16K miles indicated and is a largely clean example. I'm not sure what I want to do with it yet. As it sits it is bone stock, 5-lug, 5-speed manual and is an SE trim spec. The leather and everything about it smells and screams 1990s. Amazing experience that is definitely once in a lifetime for someone who was still a kid back in the mid 90s.


Truck's Repaired! SCT LiveWire TS+ & Tow Mirrors

Today I got my truck back from PSP Diesel of Houston, TX. These guys did a full tune up of my truck repairing many broken things and making it (hopefully) more reliable. The shop was very professional and turned the job around quickly. We did everything down to the shocks. Can't say it was cheap and I hope the decision doesn't come back to bite me.


Splitting sites again? Welcome to Dmitry's Garage!

I've decided it's time to split my personal blog, into two sites. I plan to keep tech and general life blogging to my personal blog while using the new site for all automotive posts. It's going to take me a little time to build everything out, but I'm very excited to separate out the functions and themes of the sites. This should not impact my youtube channel other than changing some links soon :-)!

Trackspec Motorsports Heat Extractor Louvers

My supercharge mustang generates a LOT of heat under the hood. It's time to let this thing breathe by allowing clean air to pass through the radiator, reducing coolant temperatures, and flowing out of the hood relieving some of the built up heat! The difference is pretty huge and the install is quite easy. I think anyone could do this themselves if you're careful.

Steeda Sway Bar, Race Gas Lund Tune & Riced Out F250

This is a video that's all over the place! We will work on my F250 to rice it out with some new LED head lights, tail lights, third brake lights and a cold air intake! Then I show you the new Steeda sway bar as the fix to the pulley damage on my Stage 2 ProCharger kit from where I tried to run the Pedders sway bar. Finally we review my race gas tune on Sunoco 260 GT Plus unleaded 104 for my mustang. Lund did a great job remote tuning this beast!


Got an F250 Super Duty Toy Hauler

Is this going to be the biggest mistake I've ever made? Probably. I just purchased a 2007 F250 Super Duty with the notoriously troublesome 6.0L V8 turbo diesel. The truck seems to be in good condition, but they are known to be a huge dump of money. Today I picked it up and began some maintenance on it. The truck will definitely need a little love.


Supercharged Mustang Pedders Coilovers & Sway Bars

Today I installed the Pedders Coilovers and Sway Bars kit for my 2016 Mustang GT. This kit provides a nice drop and an improvement in performance. As I understand BC makes the actual shocks for Pedders. Both are brands with experience in racing and street performance. I found this to be a moderate to challenging job depending on your experience with mods and working on cars. If you have a well equipped shop this is definitely doable yourself. On jack stands in a small garage or driveway it may be a bit hard to do.

Mustang APR Chin Splitter & Ford Performance Tow Hook

Today we're going to be installing an APR Carbon Fiber Chin Splitter and a Ford Performance Tow Hook on my 2016 Mustang GT that is ProCharged and being setup for track road racing use. The purpose of the splitter is both cosmetic and aerodynamic. The splitter should help create clean air in front of the car. The tow hook is just a good idea, and yes it connects to the frame of the car. It's not just hanging off the body work like some people assume!

Smelly Fuel Hose, New Tires & Parking Lines

Having finished installing the Fore Innovations Fuel System I found that I had a really strong gasoline smell from the Eaton Startlite hose that I was recommended. I ended up replacing those for a very similar hose, which no longer smelled. I also show you some new wheels, sticky tires and we paint some parking lines for my lift!

New tires and wheels!
