Just returned from another trip to Thailand for the second round of the Thailand Drift Series.
A recap of our trip to FD Seattle from a mixture of sources.
We recently hosted the PacNW Supra Nationals dyno day here at the shop.
The past couple weeks have been really busy around here. With Formula Drift Atlanta coming up and the Oregon Trail Rally going on at Portland International Raceway, we saw a lot of race teams around the shop.
We have joined forces with Taper Pro USA, we run their products on our drift cars. Contact us for prices.
A client stopped by the shop to let us check out his new Chevy Stingray.
Its not often we're able to tune BMWs, but this one was special....
When the stock KA just isn't enough.
We recently installed a Vortech Supercharger kit on a Subaru BR-Z.
What did you get your car?
Here's a Skyline you don't see very often. Only being in production for a couple years, 85-87, it's pretty rare around here. This one came into the shop for an engine/tranny update.
Magnum on bags.
This Mitsubishi Evo X recently came in for a few bolt on goodies.
We recently had a Noble M12 GTO-3R come in to the shop for some tuning. Noble is a small British sports car company so it's no surprise if youve never heard of or seen one in person. These particular models were assembled in South Africa and very few were ever imported into North America.
One of our current projects is this Dodge Ram SRT10. The customer would like to make 2,000HP and break 200MPH in the standing mile. There's a lot of work involved in reaching these goals, but first and foremost is safety....

There are some great shots of Ryan Tuerck in the 2JZ FR-S. We can't wait to see more coverage from the final event of the 2013 season.
We recently have seen a spike in the amount of new BR-Z and FR-S owners inquiring about anything from simple suspension modifications to full chassis builds. Recently, a client came in to request a few tasteful but simple modifications to be done on her daily driven Subaru BR-Z.
"86 Day" is a world-wide event held on August 6th celebrating everything that the Hachiroku stands for, whether be it the older legendary AE86...
...or the new interpretation of the car that Toyota collaborated buidling together with Subaru.
In between working on the various cars around the shop, we spent the later part of this week getting the shop ready for the Summer Cruise-In tomorrow, July 13.
Ryan Tuerck's Formula D Retaks Scion FR-S returns back to PSI after a long stay on the East Coast for rounds 2-4 of Formula D. The team will spend the next week and a half getting the car ready for Round 5 at Evergreen Speedway. Come check out the car this Saturday at our 4th Annual Summer Cruise-In.
Mike Kojima, of MotoIQ, gives us a nerd's eye view on Ryan Tuerck's Formula D Scion FR-S.
In the article, he provides a great overview of the car and the components that make it a competative drift car. Enjoy the article, http://www.motoiq.com/magazine_articles/id/3081/nerds-eye-view-ryan-tuercks-2jz-powered-fr-s.aspx
Many of you don't know what Zooey Magazine is and neither did we when we first heard about it from Katee Sackhoff, Erick's sister.
Above: Katee and Erick at PSI private grand opening at our current location off of HWY 26.
Katee sent a link to Erick regarding an interview she had recently done with Zooey Magazine. They were interviewing her because her show "Longmire" is premiering its second season in a couple of weeks. In the interview, she talks about how she got started in acting and her career. They also ask her about PSI and if we have built her anything, but sadly we have not. But hopefully in the near future, that is somthing that will change.
