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.

Destined For Greatness: 3 370Z’s Prepare for the Arrival of Top Secret

Secret Services Auto was surrounded by 370z’s last thursday as Planet Zero, Swat Performance and Baker-Jackson Nissan were dynoing their Nissan 370Z’s in preparation for Smoky Nagata’s (of Top Secret Japan fame) arrival and tune starting on March 29th, just in time before Import Reactor Unlimited. I must have counted 5 or 6 370z’s that day in front of the shop, three of which sported a small “Top Secret” decal on the rear window.
