Whenever we get a new Project Car, we have a vision of where we want that car to end up looking like. This definitely goes in stages and takes time, but step by step, we get there. For the Mercedes CLA45, as soon as we saw the RevoZport RZA W-117 carbon aero kit, we knew where

With every great supercar comes an incredible braking system usually made in cooperation with Brembo Italy. Some cars such as the SRT Viper have a combination of Brembo calipers with StopTech rotors. But with the amazing engineering of the calipers, pads, and rotors to give the car a well balanced braking setup, you cannot get

With a 8.4L V10 pushing 640hp, what could you not love about this car. Made only for 2013 to 2014 under the SRT brand (now taken back under control by Dodge), these beasts were a huge update in their 5th generation of production. Their pricetags of $130K were definitely warranted when you started to see

Everyone always wants to know what numbers did the car make or what 0-60 or 1/4 mile time did it run. There is so much that really goes on behind tests like this that all that really matters is the delta improvement. To compare to a magazine test or someone elses dyno is nearly impossible.

We like to do things pretty fancy around here when it comes to Porsche products. Having had our 991 Turbo since December 2013, we have had time to build items as well as develop tuning for it. Our latest items actually were started back in February 2014 as seen on one of our Project Car Blogs here.

Our Mercedes CLA45 AMG is already wickedly quick with the addition of our VR Tuned Tuning Box Kit and new prototype Agency Power high flow cat downpipe. But to take it up a notch for noticeable street performance we added our revolutionary VR Tuned Auto Flash to the 2.0L dual clutch car. The Auto Flash

Porsche 991 Turbo tuning is now available from VR Tuned via our new multi channel tuning box kit. The Porsche 991 Turbo and Turbo S are able to make 630bhp from our new Tuning Box Kit. The Siemens SDI9 ECU in the cars cannot be read out because of tuning encryption, so conventional OBDII or

The AutoFlash is one of the newest products on the market and it just plain works! We have been testing the AutoFlash on several cars over the past couple of months with great success. Even our manufacturing partners in the UK have been showing huge performance gains on cars like the Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari 458,

As I type this, thousands of people are about to enter the 2014 SEMA show and get a preview of the car located in booth 32273. But before the car got there, we had to give it some more cool factor other than our white ceramic exhaust, KW suspension, and red Niche wheels. Thats right

Its Project Car wheel time and guess what company we went with? Niche Wheels of course! The manufactures of the wheel industry have nothing but awesomeness in fitments and styling for every vehicle out there. For our Mercedes CLA45 we wanted to step up 1 size from 19 inch factory wheels to 20 inch styles.

There are many exotic cars that come with a front end lift system from the factory nowadays. Cars such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, and even the Porsche GT3 have optional lift systems available. Purely because these cars are low to the ground for improved aerodynamics and not everyone in the world has buttery smooth roads like

Let me be straight forward and say that this Mini Cooper Countryman S JCW edition was really bad ass. It was a rare find in that it was white, had no stripes, had navigation, and was the JCW. I loved the little car and had a dream of it becoming a WRC looking street car.

Our last update on the Project CLA45 was the baseline dyno and some of the modifications discussed that we will be doing. The first major horsepower increase will be from our VR Tuned ECU Tuning Box Kit. The multi channel tuning box is more than a piggyback unit. These Tuning Boxes have high power data

There are several different ways to lower your vehicle to get the perfect handling, ride height, and fitment. You could go with coilovers, lowering springs, air suspension to achieve these results. Typically on our Project Cars, we like to run coilovers. For example on most of our Porsche projects, we have used KW Coilovers. On

With the Mercedes CLA45 AMG in our hands and the modification process underway, the first thing we needed to get was a good solid baseline dyno of the car. This allows us to test mods as we go and see what the gains are as our project develops. Besides dyno testing, we are also doing
