Annual WiredonHonda/ProTunerParts Meet Coverage…

I actually wasn’t going to go to this meet because it was all the way out in Riverside and it was quite a drive. I looked up the weather the night before and saw that the high was gonna be like 93 degrees or some shit and I REALLY didn’t want to go. And then I looked up the directions and saw how far it was and I pretty much just got up and walked away from the computer. I’ve never been so reluctant to go to a meet but we’ve had a lot more viewers lately and I wanted to keep the momentum going by giving you guys some good coverage to look at. Plus there’s so much going on in the summer time it’s hard not to go out. I would have just laid in my room all day and not do anything so we decided to go. Big Mike wanted to get together and eat at this one Kebab place too and seeing the homies is always good. We always manage to eat something and share some random laughs so even with the hot weather it would be worth it. By the time I got out there it was like almost 1pm already so there was only about 2 hours left anyway. If it ended up being terrible we would only have to stand around for a little bit. Originally this was going to be two parts since there ended up being so many pictures but I have a couple other things I want to push out this week before the weekend. Okay, enough talking, here we go…

Oh, I decided to give the 10-20mm lens a rest that day so if you have some kind of strange dramatic cloud fetish, you won’t see any of it here. The plus side of using the 70-200 meant that if I was lazy I wouldn’t have to walk far to take pictures. Here’s Big Mike’s car always looking good. He finally got his black braided line for his valve cover to catch can set-up…

A closer look…

DPK David was asked by Falken to come out so he did…

I walked over to the shaded area where he was at and they were fighting off gigantic red ants. Shit was everywhere….only in Riverside…

Lisa Uchida and her timeless award-winning Supra. So happy to see it come back after taking a hiatus for so long…

This meet was at the K&N facility so they had some of their own sponsor vehicles out…

Here’s what the meet looked like…It wasn’t as crowded anymore by the time I got there but the crowd was still decent. Probably had to do with the weather which turned out to not be so bad. It was definitely hot but there was a nice breeze every now and then…

There were som cars parked along the side of the building as well so I walked back there to see what was going on…

Everytime I go out to an event whether it be a show or a meet, and no matter the distance, this guy is always blue taping his front bumper before he leaves and when he shows up. I’m sure the dude has spent enough on blue tape to get a nice clear bra job by now. His bumper is so important to him that I just took a picture of his front bumper…haha…

Ran into Bisi and interrupted his important conversation to say what’s up to him…

Big Mike’s SE37K, NSX brakes, and his $320954.34 lug nuts…

Bisi’s engine bay…

Been seeing this S2K a lot lately and various meets. I’m not really sure what happened but the rear wheels aren’t as aggressive as before. Maybe he adjusted the camber more because the rear wheel doesn’t sit like the way it did…

Saw this S2000 and spotted the Design Craft sticker on the trunk. The hood was closed at the time but I wanted to see if he had the iVTEC kit that Design Craft created and sure enough it did…

Just a quick glance and you probably wouldn’t even notice that the valve cover has been extended. I was actually at Design Craft during the week and got to see their kit first hand. It’s definitely different. They created the kit so that the F20C would have iVTEC like the K-series. The resulting kit gives S2000s something that they were seriously lacking before; Torque….

You can see the extended valve cover closer here as well as the new VTEC solenoid, bracket, and line. I wish I could explain it more indepth to you guys but even I don’t remember all the information. There’s plenty of resources on the web about it and Honda Tuning is also doing a write-up on the whole system…

You can see the dyno of the S2K here. Graph looks a lot smoother through the powerband then stock and with the J’s Racing exhaust, there’s no crazy dip in power from 5750-6500 RPM like on the previous pulls…

Had no idea where Big Mike was until he walked out of the facility a while after we got there. I guess he went on some crazy hour long tour throughout the K&N facility…

Always see this hatch at events. Pretty nice build…the color is similar to Big Mike’s but it’s more like the Falken green and an almost brighter shade…

NOS Energy girls…

The Volkswagon CC that everyone always post  pics of online…Great stance and overall look. Nicul who used to be from Supastar owns this car…I say used to because I don’t know if he’s still in the group or whatever…More emphassis on the whatever part…haha…

Another shot of Lisa’s Supra…

David and Big Mike…

One of the cleanest Hondas at the meet…thumbs-up to this guy…

They were handing out NOS drinks all day…

We were right by Sheepey’s hood but someone told me he had left already. He always bugs me about not hanging out with him so I text him to see where he was at, and sure enough, he was still there…

This isn’t him of course, this is his son from the future. He came back on his time machine to tell Sheepey about the future. Here he is carrying his future lady friend. He hit her with that like memory erasing device or something so she doesn’t remember their trip to 2010…

Sheepey was happy to see his future son but hid behind this tree because he would worry that meeting his kid from the future would disrupt the time space continuum…

Anyways…back in reality, here is the skate Mustang that appeared on Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory with the grip tape on the hood and all…

This Integra was pretty nice. I think he’s trying to go with a “period correct” type of theme…

…judging by his vanity plate…

Jared and Big Mike were impressed…

Tony from itsjdmyo wasn’t around so I thought he would appreciate this…

Future son of Sheepey was in deep thought, probably realizing that his calculations were incorrect and he should have traveled back in time to a better meet, like Eibach or something…Something he had done had changed the future though, because the rainbow guitars on his shirt began to melt away…=O…

Meanwhile, DPK David and Jackie were getting their model on…They didn’t intentionally pose for this picture. I just happen to catch them because they may or may not always pose like this at events…

Caught these funk-fakers with some really fake TE37s with stickers…

Hmm…

David grabbed the camera and took pictures of these “models”…

They were with some booth that apparently vinyl wraps cars or something but they didn’t have any car to display. They did bring out helmets though…and the girls posed with them…Because when your company wraps cars you bring helmets to your booth…

Not sure what happened here but Sheepey was probably telling her a dirty joke that had something to do with peanut butter and a wooden toilet brush or something… I don’t know…

This isn’t creepy at all…

It was about 3pm already and the meet was coming to a close so we got in our cars and headed out to go eat…

We ended up at Mr. Kebab and Big Mike couldn’t stop raving about how great the food was here. The Hookah spot on the right however, “sucks dick” according to Big Mike. Whatever that means…8===>….O=…

Thanks to David being the Michael Jordan of indecision…we sat there for quite awhile because he couldn’t figure out if we should do the family meal or not…We ultimately did of course and it was definitely worth it. The food was bomb as hell…

Food was eaten, great times were had, even better conversations…including one on how to make Pruno, which of course, is jail wine…

After we ate, we stood outside while Jared rubbed all his Mugen in our faces…

That’s all folks, hope you enjoyed it and made it all the way to the end without your phones crashing…I’m out…
