20th Transport Show 2011

This year was a little bit different as the show was a combination of 3 carshows in one. The hall was basically split into 3 sections, the right side was the exotic old schools, which then transitioned to your 89 and below cars and finally the 90 and above entries.

One section also featured the past 20 winners which went head to head for the ultimate best in show car. My favorite was the 2000gt.

Petron National Drag Race Championship 3rd Leg montage

Just a vid I made from last weekends action.

Featured Car: Gen's Vanni built Y-Tuned Turbo Civic

From the outside you would think that this car would be any other modified Honda. An all steel car, carbon hood, trunk and of course a B series engine. The large front mount intercooler might make you wonder what's under the hood but then again since you see it on regular "gas station" tambay sessions you would say "this car can't be that quick".

Last year, Gen run a best of 11.6 sec in one of the legs of the Drag Race Championships. This puts his car in the Pro class category and boasts to be one of the first street cars in this bracket.

Under the hood the car is powered by a B16EG power plant that produces 508 whp and 301 TQ

List of engine upgrades would include the following

Arias 81mm pistons
Golden Eagle blockguard
Acl race bearings
Eagle connecting rods
STR cam gears
Gates racing timing strongbelt
Crower valve springs and retainers
Ferrea valve locks
JG Edelbrock VictorX intake manifold
JG Edelbrock 68mm throttle body
Staging lanes air to air intercooler

GT3582r tial housing .82 AR
Tial V Band clamps and flanges
Tial 52mm BOV
Tial 60mm external wastegate

Modifications to his car were taken car of Vanni Garcia from Vannitec racing and engine management was tuned by Why Why from Staging lanes. As of last dyno, the car runs @ 500 WHP.

Street Art: Spotted near the mindanao ave exit from Nlex

Random Snaps: Celica spotted @ Subic


Last Saturday I decided to head to Clark to watch the 3rd leg of the Petron Drag Race Championship. Had no sleep so was powered by Cobra energy drink most of the time. Really wanted to watch to watch my friends race unfortunately their cars didn't arrive thanks to the Manila truck ban. The big names were still present though so overall it was still enjoyable to watch.
