One of the best parts of Auto Salon is getting to see what trends are emerging from Japan. It’s no secret that we like to mimic the JDM style so pay close attention to see what’s hot, what’s new and what’s still on and poppin’ in the land of the rising sun.
Eco Friendly Tuning
Over the last few years the Japanese have not only embraced lowering emissions and increasing MPGs, but have also taken to tuning vehicles to increase performance and efficiency.
Every year the Japanese continue to refine their already world-class-technologies and somehow find ways to make a wheel a little lighter, a little stronger or just look more badass.
One of the most abundant elements in the known universe is also one of the most abundant elements in vehicle tuning.
Tuners are still finding new and better ways of modifying Japanese classics. With a recent increase in interest on both sides of the Pacific there were some interesting goodies waiting for historic fans.
Multi-piston Brake Upgrades
The lust for a big brake kit is hard to resist and the Japanese aren’t showing any signs of slowing production of new kits with more pistons than you can shake a stick at.
