Who: Auto Produce Boss
What: DD Star Turbo Manifold
Rides: SR20DET Equipped RWD Cars
Ah, the HKS TO4Z. Yes, the badass one with the surge holes. The only problem here is HKS doesn't make a manifold to bolt that bad boy to a SR20DET. Now comes AP Boss with their new DD Star manifold (double D, for Drift and Drag). Stainless steel, equal length and top mount. Need we say more? All we have to do now is try to convince AP Boss USA to give us one to 'test fit' on Charles' 240SX.

We previously told you about the N-Spec front bumper that Ings+1 released for the Evo X. But the sides and the rear bumper are now complete. The aero kit comes with optional front canards, brake ducts and Z-Power wing. Ings+1 also offers these body parts in regular FRP and also a hybrid FRP that has the same flexibility as urethane. Now who's going to be first to rock it?

Blitz has never offered too many wheels, but when they do, they make bomb-ass shit. They recently released the BRW Profile 09Mag and 08F, specifically for the GT-R and Evo X (respectively). The BRW Profile 09Mag made of magnesium alloy and comes in 20" supercar size. The BRW Profile 08F has machine cut finish that sparkles from all angles, a great contrast to any dark-colored Evo.

Can't get enough wheels? Neither can we. Work took the time to add another rim to their Emotion arsenal lineup. Unfortunately for some of you with smaller cars, the new 11R only comes in 17" and 18". But luckily for the rest of us that don't own an old-ass car, these wheels come in five flavors; Matte Black, Matte Bronze, Glim Silver, Metal Buff and White. Common lug patterns are stock, and whatever isn't stocked can always be custom-ordered through Work USA.

To top off their 800whp turbo upgrade SSP has machined off custom intake manifolds. And at both ends of the manifold sits 65mm billet throttle-bodies. These are just some of the many things SSP has been offering for the GT-R. Other new items include their all aluminum radiator, finned transmission pan and transmission cooler. SSP is one of the very few companies that's offering 'hardcore' engine performance parts for the GT-R, and not just cosmetic parts like most others. Keep an eye on SSP as they will definitely become a driving force in the GT-R world.
