CAR OF THE WEEK
2013 Subaru WRX owned by Pete Raps
According to Pete, his goal for this car is to build a solid platform for high horsepower. And by the looks of his customization list, he is well on his way to reaching that goal with his investment so far. Current customizations include an STI brake kit and drivetrain, Konig wheels, Feal coil over suspension and a Defi boost gauge. The work performed on the car has been a combination of efforts from Pete and his performance shop, Turnin Concepts. If you want to follow Pete’s build or just check out more pics of his car, you can do so on his MotorCrush profile.
MOD OF THE WEEK
Armytrix exhaust system on a 2009 Nissan 370Z owned by Joseph Starkey
This exhaust system includes high-flow catalytic converters and cat back exhaust manufactured by Armytrix. They produce handcrafted valvetronic exhaust systems that allow the user to control how loud their exhaust sounds with the press of a button. This system replaces the restrictive stock exhaust resulting in increased exhaust flow and improved performance. Even though Joseph installed the system himself, this upgrade set him back a pretty penny. See more of Joseph’s 370z build by visiting his MotorCrush profile or find him checked-in on the LIVE feed.
CAR BIO OF THE WEEK
“Goes by a lot of names: tank, beast, master chief, but has never let us down.”
– Jason Allen on his 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
Thanks for sharing your vehicle’s story, Jason! Nothing is better than a vehicle that you can rely on. Those are some great names for it too. Might we also consider “old faithful”? Seems to fit quite well. If you have any additional name suggestions for Jason shoot him a message on MotorCrush.

PIC OF THE WEEK
2009 BMW 135i owned by Jay Borbajo
Check-out this shot of Jay Borbajo’s slammed 135i in the desert. The car resembles a predator with a menacing stance, only turning more aggressive as it prowls the pavement for its prey. This look is accomplished thanks to various aero upgrades and flawless wheel fitment. If you enjoyed this photo, head over to Jay’s profile and see the rest of the photoshoot.
