In keeping with our personal resolutions to maintain complete honesty with you, our readers, at all times, we have a confession to make: we disobeyed direct orders of our higher-ups this month. They wanted us to dedicate this column to "talking trash" on the competition - you know, discuss all the ways why the other mags are screwing up and why they won't win this engine building competition, but after hearing our SR roar to life inside a G-Dimension drift car test-bed, and its GT42R spool up to kick out some surprising numbers on G-Dimension's Dynojet, in its baby steps of tuning -- none of that matters anymore. We'll be heading off to battle in the next few weeks, armed with one of the most potent four cylinders ever built to burn 100-octane gasoline, with its sights set not only on the competition's laughable "best efforts", but a few long-standing records, as well.
Peep next issue for full coverage of the final showdown, pictures of the other guys' engines going up in flames, a champagne-soaked 2NR staff, and full disclosure of the SR20DET that won it all. Until then, check out the guide we've compiled below, of the tuning industry's most knowledgeable manufacturers, builders, and tuners, whose expertise played heavily into the build of this monster SR.
