3s- GTE engine modifications explained

One of the best ways to modify a 3s-gte motor.
It is always recommended to ensure that the vehicle is safe and reliable before starting on the path of modifications.

Enjoying the last days of summer we were spoiled with some nice eye candy. I think Gasant of the BM Squad can back me up on this one.

I took some time off on Saturday to make a turn at Advanced Audio out in Lansdowne where BassMaster Inc., in conjunction with Team Autopunks, hosted their first “Sound Off” event. It was also the first sound event for 2012 where I was invited to and surely was one banging one.

Also impressive was Nizaam in his black Conquest doing a 149.51 dB’s in Bass boxing, something the whole crowd …

The Car show was hosted by Stick Shifters and was in the form of a Burn Out, Sound Off and Show and Shine. A number of rides pulled through and it’s always good to see new rides on show.  Here are some snapshots…

Personally, this was surely a great start to 2012’s car …

BM Squad Hook Up at Queens

I remember taking that Sunday afternoon cruise to Sea Point just to check out the guys showing off their pimped out rides. On Sunday I decided to take that same cruise but this time around to Queens Beach. One of Cape Town’s biggest BMW car clubs was having a hook up and photo shoot with SSJ Concepts.
The club has been around for a while and always tries to support the local car scene, pulling up at almost every car show event. They sport some pretty impressive rides ranging from drop …
