A Nissan Outing: The All Nissan Meet @ Baker Tuning

While I was in Dallas this weekend, Danh shot on over to the all Nissan Meet over at Baker Nissan on the North Side of Houston. Coupled with a guest DJ, aka Heavygrinder and local DJ Tito, it was a nice Saturday event. Baker Tuning got the point across that Nissans are their game, and they showed it. Enjoy the eye candy.

Smoky Does Houston: Top Secret Dyno Tuning Day 3.

Wednesday was the last day for Smoky Nagata to dyno tune the last batch of Nissans in Houston which happened to be open to the public as well. Fans from all over stopped by Secret Services Auto to see the legend doing what he does best.

Smoky Does Houston: Top Secret Dyno Tuning Day 2.

As I write this post at 3am, I had just got back from Secret Services Auto about an hour away from where I stay. The dyno sessions are going well, and Smoky is relentless, and a true perfectionist when it comes to tuning. As soon as Nagata-san arrives to Secret Services, he puts on his game face and gets to work. He is a tuning machine!

Dammit Smoky! I told you! I cant read Japanese!

Top Secret 370Z’s Update: Brakes, Body Kits and Balls.

The Mayday Garage crew got a chance to check up on the twin white Z’s being built by Planet Zero and Baker-Jackson Nissan. As you recall, these twin Z34’s are being built in preparation for Smoky Nagata’s arrival here in Houston. These 370’s will undergo a very drastic transformation as they will go from showroom stock, to track/show shock. Maydaygarage will be here documenting this event, and this past thursday, I got a chance to see what these cars were going through.

Gangster Stuff: Greddy 8-Piston BBK for Nissan 370Z from Top Secret Japan

So this past weekend I was rummaging about town and I came across this “top secret” tuner’s house that was hidden in a nook on the west end of town. Well, I wouldn’t say secret, but you get what I am saying. I love it when people build crazy ass rides out of the garage of their homes. This “location” in particular is owned by a Japanese gent who just so happens to be part of the Mayday Collective and an associate of our pals over at Planet Zero. When we stopped by the house this past weekend a few parts had just flown in from Japan, one of which was a set of Greddy 8 piston BBK for the 370z as well as the 6 piston rear from TOP SECRET Japan. Featured here is the front 8 piston with disk. Continue on for more pictures, it really doesn’t get much sexier than this.
