PERRIN BRZ/FR-S Oil Cooler

It may be obvious to some that you want to keep your oil cool under heavy load and extreme conditions. This keeps your oil from becoming too thin, or breaking down,which makes it less effective and could lead to premature engine wear or even engine failures! Another reason to keep your oil temps down is it keeps other engine components cooler which is good for HP.

R56 & GT2560 meets PERRIN Water Injection

We have had our Water injection system installed for a very long time on our R56, and it was sitting there doing nothing because there was no way to turn in on. At least there was no way to turn it on using the injector pulse signal. The R56, as many know, is a Direct Injection engine.  This means, instead of the injectors firing fuel in the intake runners, the injectors are fired directly into the combustion chamber.  This is [...Continue Reading...]

2008 WRX Hatch Build Up

It€™s a love hate relationship with any new model of car that comes out.  You either love it, or hate it, but eventually it grows on you.  I personally love the hatchback look from the side, and front, but the back is a little scary.  But a few simple things can fix that.  Getting rid of the chrome parts for painted or black out parts is a huge part of the formula.  Then lower it a bit with some nice [...Continue Reading...]

PERRIN T31 Rotated Turbo kit vs. T3 Rotated Turbo Kit

This is an Nasioc Post we made regarding our older T31 turbo kits and changes we made to make the kit better. FITTMENT ISSUES First off fitment issues with the PERRIN turbo kit, are not common. While we have had issues time to time, we have taken care of those who had them.  I should say we have taken care of those who have called us and explained their problem.  There are a lot of our kits out there, and [...Continue Reading...]
