When you think of 2-door SR20-powered Nissans, you're probably going straight to Silvias, 180SXs and even GTi-R Pulsars. But all those cars have exploded in value in the last few years, so what do you do if you've only got a few pesos in your pocket?  MOOG has answered that question in the latest episode HERE. Spurred into action after Marty bought the finest Toyota Sera he could find on Facebook Marketplace, MOOG went hunting for a car he'd lusted after since he was a young man roaming the mean streets of Grafton: a Nissan NX Coupe! Following on from Nissan's original...

Taking a car that engineers have spent thousands of hours getting right, and then strapping on a turbocharger or supercharger and attempting to double the factory horsepower, sounds like a great way to waste thousands of dollars dealing with busted engines. However, as many have already proven, you can radically improve a car's power output without driving over your own crankshaft. After deciding to sample BRZ/86 life, MOOG wasn't blown away by the Toyota/Subaru coupe's performance as a stock car. He fixed that last week when he fitted an SME turbo kit (watch the episode HERE) and a Gen II Garrett turbocharger to the...
