That is one big turbo.

Today at Gruppe-S at one point or another each employee talked by it and had to stop to look at it and ask what it was for. You could fit a fist in the intake side of this thing...

Dez Ballard time attack driver and his 2008 Subaru Sti get outfitted
with Stoptech 6 piston Big brake kit. 14inch rotor and stainless lines,
that is simply beautiful!

This should really help him slow the car down in the corners with all
that extra horsepower from this Garrett GT35R. No excuse now, let's see
some bad ass time this weekend at Pahrump.

Call Gruppe-S, Stoptech is having a crazy sale on the Big Brake kits,
don't miss out. Contact the sales guys here for more details.

We just got several boxes full of the latest Hankook Tire Poster, featuring out Gruppe-s 350Z and the lovely Hankook Tire Models: Ashley Sarto, Helen Fancik, Kathy Gardiner, and Janelle Ha.

And the best part is that they are 100% FREE! The catch is you have to drop by our shop to pick one up. If you really want..... I'll even autograph them for you.

Or you can go to Formula Drift: Irwindale in October and have the girls sign them, its the perfect excuse to talk to these primo ladies.

After strong performaces at 6 Formula Drift Events, the Hankook Tire / Gruppe S Drift 350Z gets an engine refresh. In preparation for the Formula Drift Finale @ Irwindale Speedway, Gruppe S Master Tech Adam Depner, pulled the Turbo Charged VQ to be completely rebuilt, refreshed and cleaned from top to bottom. Irwindale is a track favorite for Robbie "Bushido" Nishida, so with a fresh car, the finale should be a great event for the Hankook Drift Team.
