G37s Jim Wolf Technology POP Charger Install

Filed under: Performance
by Forbes @ 5:26 pm on July 29, 2008

One of our first G37 customers brought his car by today for a JWT pop charger install. The Jim Wolf product is top notch and as always the install was trouble free.

We made two base-line dyno runs with a best of 279 horsepower and 234 ft/lbs of torque. From the dyno graph above you can see that the torque remains extremely flat across the entire rev range and the overall gains are very nice for only adding a POP charger. The final numbers are 288 hp and 240 ft/lbs of torque.

Rolex Monterey Historic Automobile Races

Filed under: Events
by Forbes @ 6:16 pm on July 24, 2008

On August 15-17th one of the great automotive events of the year is taking place once again, the Monterey Historics. Participants and spectators will travel from around the world to see some of the rarest and most valuable cars on the planet race around the famed Laguna Seca raceway for the event’s 35th anniversary.

This year there will be over 400 race entries comprised of Historic F1, Trans-Am, Can-Am, and IMSA race cars. A 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C Mille Miglia from the Ralph Lauren Collection takes center stage in the Rolex “Moments in Time” display.

Aside from the top notch cars and racing, the weekend will feature numerous autographing sessions and an enhanced Consumer Expo. The Expo is a place where you can find any sort of vintage auto memorabilia; there is everything from vintage gas pumps to actual racing photography from the turn of the century.

Mario Andretti has been named the guest of honor for the Historics this year. His racing career has spanned many decades and he is still the only person to win the Indianapolis 500 (1969), the Daytona 500 (1967), and a Formula 1 world championship (1978). He is a wonderful person to represent the diversity of race cars and the different genres of racing at the Historics given his illustrious career.

Most importantly of all there will once again be a Z Car Corral and your favorite crew from Z Car Garage will be our in full force as always. Tickets that are purchased through the ZONC website include admission to the Z Car Corral.

Hope to see you all there in a couple of weeks!!!
