The Civic Build part 02
once again, me and my cousin building up our civic EGs. This is part 02 of the "series". Its kinda short but oh well, its not like we've done THAT much to them.
So far I got my car up and running. I'm going 8 psi on stock internals... lets see how long that will last xD. I've been doing mostly body work to it to see if I can get it sprayed soon.
My cousin on the other hand has a lot of work to do. starting with his motor. An LS/V-tec built for 20 pounds. Hes got most of his forged internals, hes just missing two or three parts then its off to the machine shop to get the block bored 10 over, but his main focus right now is on getting his roll cage in so he can paint his car and assemble it.
Yea... its kinda short. I know... part 03 will make up for that.

Mercedes Benz Factory
Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen: Bremen plant to produce additional model of the C Class model range as of 2011
• Development as a competence centre: Bremen plant expanding production operations to include Coupé of the C-Class
• New variant to be produced in addition to the C-Class Saloon, the C-Class Estate and the GLK as of 2011
• Flexible production: Coupé to be produced with three existing models on a single line
Peter Schabert, Head of the Bremen plant: "Decision another milestone on our way to becoming the C-Class competence centre and a clear sign of trust in Bremen team's capabilities and standards."
Bremen - The Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen is gearing up for the production of a fourth model of the high-volume C-Class model range. As of 2011, a Coupé will be added to a flexible production line, which already produces the three existing models. This will be a new addition to Bremen's current production portfolio in the C-Class segment, comprising the Saloon, the Estate and the compact GLK sport utility vehicle (SUV).
"The decision by the Board of Management to produce the Coupé version of the current C-Class here in Bremen as well represents another important milestone on our way to becoming Mercedes' competence centre for the C-Class and is a clear sign of the trust in the Bremen team's capabilities and standards," says Peter Schabert, Head of the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen.
The Bremen plant is developed into the worldwide competence centre for the high-volume C-Class model series. Allocating production of the new Coupé to the plant is in keeping with this strategy. As announced in December 2009, the launch of the next generation of the C-Class at the plant as of 2014 will see production of the C-Class Saloon for markets in Europe concentrated at a single location together with the production of the other C-Class model variants.
The Bremen plant is already demonstrating the flexibility of its production operations by producing three models (C-Class Saloon, C-Class Estate and GLK) on a single assembly line. The vehicles are able to pass along the assembly line in any conceivable order precisely as customer orders require, irrespective of model, variant (right- or left-hand drive, all-wheel or rear-wheel drive) and equipment. From 2011 the Bremen plant will be integrating a fourth model into the production process in the guise of the Coupé, demonstrating the plant's flexibility once again.
Production portfolio of the Bremen plant.
In addition to the models of the C-Class model series, vehicles belonging to the E-Class are also produced in Bremen, with the Coupé and Cabrio running in flexible configuration on a single production line. The roadsters of the SL- and SLK-Class are also produced exclusively in Bremen. With a workforce of around 12,600, the Mercedes-Benz plant is the largest private-sector employer in the region.
Lamborghini Aventador Twin Turbo LP700-4 By Underground Racing IS FINALLY HERE!!
Underground Racing unveils the FIRST Twin turbo Lamborghi Aventador LP700-4. With an Underground Racing Twin turbo system, this 2012 Aventador is pushing out over 1200HP and reaches 60mph from 0 in an astounding 2.2 seconds. Check out our website for Races and Events where this amazing work of art will be displayed.
Twin turbo Systems for the Lamborghini are now available.

Underground Racing is proud to release the first Twin turbo Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. Our team was very eager to get started with an Aventador project since it was first released from Lamborghini. Once this Aventador made it to Underground, we quickly began to engineer the TT system and full build for this amazing platform. Countless hours of R&D and hard work went into this project. We spent a lot of time driving and studying the inner workings of the Aventador, and this platform is amazing, but it still seemed to be missing something- acceleration. The kind you can only get from a friend I call, Boost!
No doubt the Aventador is much more advanced than the Murcielago and even the LP Gallardo. It seems that the factory really tried to make it hard for the aftermarket world to modify the Aventadors though. However, the Underground Racing team moved quickly through the road blocks that exist. For now, the UR TT Aventadors will only be released with FULL engine builds. Through our research, we have found certain conditions that make this a requirement.
Now that the project is complete, I have to say this is truly one amazing car with the addition of the UR twin turbo build. We clocked the TT Aventador 0-60 mph time in 2.2 seconds on OEM street tires, normal air pressure and on a regular road. This Aventador drives just as it did in stock form, just a lot faster. The Aventador shifting is amazingly fast and we were also able to pick up a bit faster shift time with our Quickshift upgrade.
The Underground Racing TT LP700 system is a true work of art. Unfortunately, due to several attempts by other tuners to build knock off versions of our systems, only limited portions of information and images of the turbo system will be shown. As always, doing what only Underground Racing does with a Twin turbo Lamborghini, we plan to see how far we can push the limits of the TT Aventador at several types of events with our demonstration TT Aventador. Stay tuned for more videos of this beast.
