A shot of AJC tearing up the lumber yard in Packwood.
We recently got AJC and JTP together in Packwood, WA for a practice session. Yaer Productions was there covering the event. Here is the first video in the series.
Head over to MotorMavens for a write up by MotorMavens.
Check back for the next video as AJC and JTP tear up PGP.
We now have a different car in our showroom. We have gone away from the large displacement V8's and V10's and now a 4 cylinder sits in the lobby. However, what this car lacks in displacement, it makes up for in heritage and styling.
A 1958 Porsche Special 2500.
This Porsche is powered by a 2500cc Polo4.
We recently had this Porsche on our dyno.
Come down to PSI to check out this rare and very beautiful classic Porsche and the other cars that we are working on. At the time of this post, there is a supercharged methanol-fueled beast on the dyno. More on this in the future.
Loren Haleston had the opportunity to join us at Packwood, WA for our client appreciation day. He took a lot of footage and put together this video for us.
Check it out.
Loren will be at our upcoming Summer Cruise-In and Dyno Exhibition on July 30th. See you all there.
One of our clients is a Porsche enthusiast and has many Porsche including this 997 GT3 RS,
He often drives this one or his 911 GT2 to the shop, however this time he brought down his 1958 Porsche Special.
A beautifully restored Porsche Special in front of PSI.
The client wanted to see how the car was running so we strapped it down to the dyno for a couple of pulls.

This Porsche is powered by a 4 cylinder Polo engine from Dean Polopolus.
This is a rare and beautifully restored '58 Porsche Special. This shows you never know what kind of cars will be at PSI, so feel free to stop by.
Recently, a client brought down his 2007 Honda Civic Si to be tuned.
This Civic has a cold air intake and aftermarket headers. The client wanted to get the most out of these upgrades on his daily driver, so he opted for tuning with Hondata FlashPro.

After tuning, this Civic makes 208 whp and 152 ft-lbs of torque. The Hondata FlashPro is a good tuning solution for many late model Honda's. Another application is the Honda S2000. Jason Oefelein tuned a turbo S2000 with DBW with a Hondata unit. Call or come down for more information about Hondata FlashPro and other tuning solutions offered by PSI.
This past Saturday, PSI had the chance to make it out to the Cars and Coffee meet in Tualatin, OR. When we arrived, there were many Ferrari's, Lamborghini's, Porsche's, and more.
Two of the Lamborghini's there were a Murcielago Roadster and a Countach.
This red F430 was one of the Ferrari's there. The other Ferrari's included a 348 and a V12 powered 456. In the background, you can see a Lotus Elise and an Aston Martin Vantage.
There were also several Porsche's from older 911's to newer 911 GT2's. One of our client's and his white 911 GT2 were at the meet.
Jason Oefelein talked to our client and his friend, who also owns a GT2.
Jaguar's were well represented by this E-Type. A Ford GT sat next to this British sports car.
Jason talked to several people about the Nissan GT-R and what we have been doing with them.
This was another good Cars and Coffee meet with a diverse group of cars and owners. We plan to make it to as many of these gatherings as we can throughout the summer.
Import Faceoff was at the Woodburn Dragstrip once again. For the last few years, a high horsepower Mitsubishi Evo tuned by Jason Oefelein ran at Woodburn. Jason went down to IFO to help support this Evo.

Here is a link to a great writeup about the last PGP event from MotorMavens.
Thanks Lucas Perez for mentioning us and Yoshi Shindo for the great photos. Keep up the good work.

After the fun day at Packwood, we headed up to Pacific Grand Prix the next day for an open drift event. We were there to check out some of the best Northwest drifting and also to support Andrew Coomes.

This was Andrew's first time on this track. He was connecting a lot of the corners and definitely getting a lot of smoke.
Justin took a turn driving Andrew's car.
Andrew rode shotgun and got to see first hand Justin's technique.

There were a lot of talented drivers out there.
