Welcome to the official GReddy USA blog. -Think of this as our online weekly "GReddy Times," a venue for us to report what's going on or what just happened at GReddy USA this week (new products, new projects, racing news, even online store specials.) On our blog you can see what we are up to in the GReddy Sales floor, R&D garage, on the road or even from our Headquarters in Japan.

Another project for the GReddy R&D Team

GReddy has been behind the Scion Racing (now Sparco) Rally xD program from day one, but now that they need some more power (and more importantly torque,) the GReddy R&D team have put together a reliable low boost, quick response custom bolt-on turbo kit to help the Rally xD out of the corners.  Based around a quick spooling TD04H-15G turbo and our e-Manage Ultimate, the kit also features a protected front-mounted intercooler and easy rescue piping to bypass the intercooler (in case of unpredictable rally damage.) 

Here is a quick video of the e-Manage Ultimate data-logging the Rally xD on the dyno (in an early tuning session)  Tuning continues, more details on the project coming soon...

and for those of you, who haven't seen this little rally "dynamo" in action, check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXOajXjjGLc

156+ SoCalEvo.net Evos at GReddy!

Yesterday (Sunday, March 27th) started off as an unexpected rainy day in Southern California, but that did not keep away the 156 hardcore SoCalEvo.net enthusiasts from bringing out their CT9A & CZ4A Evos for some fun.

(At GReddyFEST2, this past September, the SoCalEvo.net group won our Scavenger Hunt for a private group meet.)

With the help of avid SoCalEvo.net members like "AlphaKennyBody" Ralphy and his crew, convoys of SoCalEvo members from Los Angeles, San Diego, Inland Empire and Orange County gathered at the GReddy HQ for a huge SoCalEvo.net car meet and dyno-day.
- Also in attendance was NOS Energy Drinks, Mackin Industries (Ray's/Advan/Project Mu distributors,) and Dsport Magazine.

The day was filled with car enthusiast mingling with GReddy staff and talking about Mitsubishi Evos and GReddy performance products.

One of the highlights of the day was the GReddy "Guess the HP!" game, where everyone in attendance had a chance to guess the HP of 6 Evos that were put on the GReddy Dyno!
The Closest guess for each won a GReddy Goodie Bag! 
Congratulations again to : SoCalEvo's
 "allblackevo," "Fernani," "Fernani2," "Evobros," "Viet-man," & "JDMjunkies42" 
for your awesome guesses!

The winner of the Dyno Contest was SoCalEvo's :

  • "Departed" for the Evo Xs - 357.6hp
  • "ReeseTuning" for the Evo VIII / IXs - 623.3hp

Thanks again SoCalEvo.net for having your Meet at GReddy.
It was a pleasure meeting you all!

2nd Place for the GReddy tC in Rd1

This past weekend was the #11 GReddy Turbo tC debut race in the Redline Time Attack Championships.  And we are happy to report with GReddy Driver Takeshi Aizawa at the wheel in the FWD Street Tire Class, the team finished in a strong 2nd place, only behind the returning 2x Series Champion, Clint Boisdeau, in his proven turbocharged Focus.

Being it’s 1st race, the GReddy Team is very optimistic in closing the gap in future rounds.   This is just the start of the GReddy tC’s evolution and the stock 2AR-FE engine proved very reliable under boost for 300whp.  With upgrades coming in the form of Limited Slip Differential, upgraded clutch, more aero, weight reduction and more boost, the Team is looking forward to our next round of Redline Time Attack
