The GM LS engines are easy to obtain, relatively inexpensive to buy, easy to work on, and have the capability to make sizable amounts of horsepower without breaking the bank. Therefore, the LSX-Swapped and Vortech Supercharged combination has already started to become widely known as the go-to combo for massive, reliable, drop-in power for all kinds of vehicles…and we’re not just talking Chevys here.
Case in point is Vishal Mathur’s Nissan S13 Silvia. Vishal’s car is not the type of thing you see every day, not even in sunny Kissimmee Florida where he runs his shop Speedzone Performance. However, the level of customization on Vishal’s car certainly does work wonders for being the rolling billboard that draws enthusiasts of all types to pick up the phone or stop by the shop and swipe their credit cards and plunk down their hard earned cash in hopes of getting their own rides to reach the same level.
Vishal’s S13 features a Chargespeed Widebody Kit with an R32 GTST Rear Spoiler, VIS Carbon Hood and Trunk, and Wilwood Brakes sitting behind Lenso Spec E Wheels. Suspension is handled via D2 Airride Suspension, with Truhart Suspension Camber and caster kits. The interior features a Cusco 4 Point Roll Cage, and all manner of customized appointments from gauges, quick release NRG steering wheel, and the dash itself, a Carbon Worx unit with Nikworx gauge and speaker pods.
Under the hood is really where it gets serious, with the 5.3L bottom end out of a Chevy Truck got the treatment of 317 Heads with Speedzone port and polishing, Comp Cams custom grind Camshaft, LS3 Lifters/Trays, Voodoo valve springs/retainers, Manley push rods, and a Double Roller Chain Set courtesy of Comp Cams. The boost is provided by a Vortech V-2 S-Trim Supercharger with A&A Corvette C5 Corvette mounting bracketry, feeding through a custom Speedzone intercooler and piping into a FAST 102 Intake manifold and throttle body. The fuel system was upgraded to include FAST Fuel Rails, Injector Dynamics 1000cc Injectors, and an Aeromotive A1000 Pump and regulator. the combo is rounded out by a Dominator T56 Transmission and an ACT Extreme Clutch kit with 6 Puck sprung disk and ACT Steel Flywheel. Tuned on HPTuners by Jeremy Formata (Fast Proms Tuning), the package put down 698hp / 599tq @ 6,800rpm on 11psi. using 93 Octane.

Next up for Vishal is a whole new engine combo, with a larger displacement, built bottom end LSX topped off with a Vortech V-7 YSi and a whole lot more boost!
So, there’s this really big ship that people claim is haunted in Long Beach. The Queen Mary is a retired oceanliner that sailed mainly in and around the North Atlantic Ocean from 1936 to 1967. She’s retired now, of course, and has been converted to a hotel and attraction. One very popular thing to do with the Queen Mary these days is to hold car shows near her, and Wekfest Los Angeles brought out the enthusiasts in droves…many of them lining up along the sidewalk next to the mighty ship hours before the show had even opened. Here are some pictures from the event. Enjoy!
The winner of the “Hottest Supercharged Setup” Award went to Chris Ortez and his wicked G35 Sedan. Chris has been consistently updating his car and it shows, with a totally jaw dropping presentation and attention to detail that we can’t help but respect and appreciate.

On Saturday May 17th the West Coast Tjin Edition x DaYUUM RoadShow headed out to San Francisco, CA for the Nurotag event. This Florida based production made their way to the West Coast for the first time and we had a blast being part of their first West Coast Show and hanging out with several thousand spectators and lots of fine California cars.
The 70×20 West Coast Tjin Edition x DaYUUM RoadShow booth was located in center of the main hall, right next to the stage, which allowed spectators access from all angles to the Tjin Edition x DaYUUM RoadShow booth. This also gave the Tjin Edition team the perfect opportunity to interact with fellow car enthusiast, potential customers for our partners, and let them get up close and personal with our partners amazing products and vehicles on display.
See you next time!
