This issue marks our official redesign issue. If you haven't noticed by now, the magazine has slowly begun evolving over the past three months since I've taken the bulls by the horn. Within that short time span, there have been some gradual improvements and a number of noticeable changes that have occurred along the way with the purpose of improving both the look and the feel of the magazine. The most obvious to the new and improved Turbo magazine is our emphasis on technical features. From entry-level technical tuning to the more advanced engine buildups, we've got our hands in every cookie jar imaginable, imaginable, and believe me when I say it will only get better as the magazine rolls on. From solid tech and detailed new product analysis, no stone was left unturned as we took what we know best and revamped our vehicle selection to offer a wider array of feature cars. As an avid performance enthusiast, I believe it's still important to showcase the popular cars of today, but the Mitsubishi Starions, Datsun 510s, and Toyota Starlets of yesteryear I grew up tinkering around with deserve some long lost love as well. Many of the older production vehicles that have slowly faded in memory seem to have been long forgotten by many of our fellow automotive automotive magazines-including us-which is a complete shame. Mark my word, Turbo magazine will continue to feature the high-quality vehicles you'd come to expect but with some new flavor, as we mix up our vehicle variety from JDM to USDM starting with this very issue.

Long before I began working at Source Interlink Media, I too was an avid reader of the magazine. With every month that came to pass I sat patiently by my mailbox in hopes of a fresh new copy. I carefully perused each and every page in hopes of gaining ideas and tips on how to modify my '92 turbo Integra while in complete admiration of some of the more popular guys back in the day who paved the roads for the import drag scene, such as Archie Madrazo, Tony Fuchs, Junior Asprer, and Myles Bautista. It's been great to see how many of these same guys who made that impact continue to keep to their automotive roots. Rumor has it that a few of these old-school racer heads have been getting back into the quartermile scene, quietly rebuilding their old rides in hopes of showing the young bloods who really owns the streets. Until then, enjoy the fruits of our labor as we bring you another issue we're proud to call Turbo magazine.
