Hondata S300 v3 wide band O2 sensor wiring and set up instructions.

The Hondata S300 has proven to be one of the best “bang for the buck” EMS options for the D, B and H series engines. With the ability to fully control every engine parameter, as well as program in new outputs such as boost control and nitrous, the S300 is a great option for everything from a daily driver to a full blown race car. In this article we will run you through the Brewed Motorsports preferred method of hooking up a wide band oxygen sensor aka WB O2 or air fuel ratio gauge / monitor.

  1. Install your wide band O2 kit per the supplied install...

We have been driving our Nissan 240SX on some Low Impedance Mitsubishi EVO 550cc injectors and running the car on low boost (wastegate spring pressure at 12psi) on a totally stock KA24E motor for some time now. Earlier this summer the KA24E was rebuilt with new pistons and headwork to see how much we could crank out of a motor long forgotten and overlooked.

We will be shooting for 18psi on pump gas and the OEM Mitsubishi injectors were maxed out, it was time for an upgrade. We choose Injector Dynamics 1000cc High Impedance Top Feed Injectors for their excellent tunability. These are some of the best aftermarket injectors and are some...

Soo what better thing to do to unwind after a 14 hour journey from Eureka, CA to Los Angeles than attend the Japanese Classic Car Show in Long Beach. The amount of clean classics at the show was like nothing I had seen before. It made me wish that I had the Datsun 510, maybe next year though! Anyway here are some of the more memorable rides from the show. Enjoy!

Well the summer in Montana has come and is quickly on its way out. Although we will be back to enjoy the winter it was time to get the Nissan 240sx KA24-T drift car down to a suitable environment in order to keep doing what it was built to do. The trip south began the beginning of September. The goal was to make it to Seattle, WA and then drive down the coast on Hwy 101, enjoying the sights and some spirited driving on all of the twisty roads. There isn't much to say besides the fact that I had a perma-smile on my face the whole time and I'm sure put a smile on those faces whom I passed! Be advised that driving a car 2000 miles  Below are...

Here at Brewed we believe having fun with your car is of the up most importance! While drifting is not for everyone, if you've never had the opportunity to hop into a well prepped car and slide around in a safe environment with some friends we truly hope to see you at an event very soon so we can be the first to share the experience with you.

The Brewed Built S13 really has only one purpose, to paint a smile on the drivers and passengers face no matter what the conditions out side may be. With simplicity and reliability a top priority for this build the car will simply never let you down.

In Part 1 of this series we installed the Borg Warner EFR 6258 turbo into the Brewed S13 and shared all the sexy secrets surrounding the new Borg Warner EFR series turbo charger. Now it’s simply time for some fun… take a moment to enjoy some sliding.

Unfortunately, it seems there was a shortage of lights for this Friday night Drift and Drag event creating some very dark spots on the track for our GoPro.

The modern turbocharger has come a long way in the last 10 years, with new lighter and stronger materials becoming available the performance and efficiency of turbochargers has vastly increased. Materials such as Titanium used in turbine wheels and forged Billet CC’d Aluminum used in the compressor wheels are now becoming the standard. 

The EFR turbo charger series utilizes titanium-aluminide turbine wheels. These state of the art turbine wheels are half the weight of the typical inconel turbine wheel found in 99% of all other turbo chargers. The reduction in weight or rotating mass vastly improves low-end response and spool time...
