POWAA Build Part III - POWAA Garage X RZ Crew Garage

Words & Snaps by Ben

We've been hard at work, as you would have read in the Part I and Part II of this high compression NA build for my Toyota Vios' 1NZ-FE. But the work wasn't over yet. 

Luckily, with JC from the RZ Crew providing the build with affordable original parts, but also helping me with the engineering needed to turn this engine into a monster, things went smooth and we were getting nearer to putting the car on the rollers.

The next steps of the build were to install the new engine head, optimise the intake and exhaust, bring some improvements on the drive train and tune the powerplant.

The Innocent Devil

Words & Snaps by Sam

Honda released its S2000 model back in 1999 as a much awaited successor to the S800, which ended production many moons before, back in 1970. After nearly three decades, Honda decided it was about time to create an all new pure and raw, purpose built driving machine, which unlike the exponentially more costly NSX, would be readily accessible to the masses.

Honda decided that the S2000 should remain in keeping with the company’s ideology at the time, which was to produce light-weight, well balanced cars, equipped with high output naturally aspirated engines; providing the perfect recipe for an unadulterated and totally engaging driving experience.

POWAA Build Part II - POWAA Garage X RZ Crew Garage

Words & Snaps by Ben

If you've already read the Part I of this build, you would know that thanks to the RZ Crew Garage, I've kept the delivery guys busy hauling over parts for the build. (If you haven't read it yet, do so!)

With the parts in and the head back from port and polish, it was time to bring everything together. I was hoping for a smooth build, but those of you familiar with custom builds would know how eager Murphy always is to help. (Murphy's Law: "what can go wrong will go wrong").

CAR-ROUSEL - The Feel Good café

Words By Ben, Snaps by June and Ben

Passion is, to me, the best reason to live. It’s what gets me up in the morning and gives me the strength to deal with life’s issues. it is what drives me and what powers POWAA Garage.

Ever since I started this site, I’ve had a clear vision of what I wanted it to be: an avenue to share my passion, and the stories of the people who share that same drive in heir lives.

Aside from tinkering and racing my own car, finding the story behind other motorheads’ builds energises me. When I find a car with a story of passion, I can’t help but want to immortalise it in pictures and share it on this blog.

Recently, I found this passion in something entirely different: a café. A car café, to be more precise, which why it makes sense for me to share it with you, reader.

POWAA Build Part I - POWAA Garage X RZ Crew Garage

Words and snaps by Ben

Ever since I started POWAA Garage back in 2012, I’ve been writing about other people’s stories. This one is special. This is the story of me and Hagane, my 2006 Toyota Vios NCP42.

While the full story of the build will be for another time, I am just going to focus on the latest happenings, which had me jumping around all over the place for about two months now.
