The First S55 Swapped E30

Old meets new

>> By:

The E30 is a true icon of German engineering and performance. As the years pass by, the prices continue to climb it seems and more enthusiasts want to get their hands on one. To this day I still miss mine, wish I never got rid of it.

Industry Best BMW N54 Intercooler

Late to the party, but the best has arrived!

>> By:

It’s about damn time!” That’s what the industry shouted back when they found out that CSF would finally be releasing a high-performance BMW N54 intercooler. Late to the party considering the platform is now over ten years old, but after the overwhelming success of the CSF’s newer BMW n55 intercooler, CSF had to answer the call and supply an industry leading design to address all the shortcomings of not just the OEM unit, but also other aftermarket intercoolers.

Butchered Back to Life

What once was a Model A

>> By:

When Henry Ford first developed the Model A, I feel like there was never a thought in his head that there would be someone almost a century later hacking it up and turning it into this crazy machine.

Marc’s β€œStreet Legal” Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo

>> By:

It’s been a good year since attending a car event in California and decided to head to the CSF Players show, I was living out of state and hadn’t seen my friend Marc (@pterodactyltactics) in a while, nor had I seen his newest build. When I showed up to the event, I immediately went straight to his car and could not believe my eyes; the build was PERFECT. The Grigio Telesto paint that Marc seems to have on all of his vehicles, the brushed wheels, the bright brakes. You could instantly tell this was one of Marc’s builds, and you once you laid eyes on it you couldn’t stop looking.

CSF x Players Show 2018

The Best Post-SEMA Show Around

>> By:

The 2nd annual CSF x Players Show 2018 was a huge success! The turnout was terrific and the quality of cars that showed up was top notch.  Because SEMA is an industry-only show, the general public is not allowed to attend. When we were planning on the dates for our inaugural show, we had the idea of it taking place after SEMA so that this event can be the public debut of some of SEMA’s top builds. Southern California is dubbed as the mecca of the automotive industry so several builds are local to us and many are friends of ours in the industry. It was a great way to spend a Sunday with friends, family, good food and to top it off admission is FREE!

Bisi’s Wago-van

AWD + 1000hp + Honda Wagon?!

>> By:

Bisimoto is a name that needs no introduction when it comes to the Honda scene. For a few years he has branched out and left his personal mark on a few Porsches that managed to make heads turn and spin at SEMA, but he has returned to his roots with this latest build, the Wago-van.

Sheepey Twin Turbo 458

A joke between friends becomes a booth vehicle.

>> By:

β€œHey, let’s put a $40,000 body kit on a Ferrari and turbocharge it”, we all at times say some crazy things to our friends, but what happens when they take you seriously? Well, this is what happens, you end up with Bright red Ferrari that sounds like a Jetson’s mobile when it’s cruising.

SEMA 2018 Recap

Legends of COOL

>> By:

Now that SEMA is behind us, well by now, it’s way behind us, and I’m finally getting some time to catch up on some coverage from several events. I guess better late than never right? This year’s SEMA was huge for us as it is each year, but it’s exciting to see the CSF brand continue to bloom like the Cereus cactus in Crazy Rich Asians, viewing party and everything! (a.k.a. our booth). It’s an understatement when I say our booth was LIT. It’s also a benefit to having a SEMA Battle of the Builders (BOTB) finalist as a booth car two consecutive years in a row. In fact, we’ve had 3 BOTB finalists in our booth in the past 4 years.

SEMA 2018 Preview

Sneak Peak of builds COOLED by CSF

>> By:

It’s SEMA crunch time and I’m somewhat relieved that we are not building a car this year. Building the #CSFEVOX for SEMA 2017 was definitely a once in a lifetime experience, but very stressful, time consuming and costly. To some, it’s an annual tradition and for those who build a car each year, hat’s off to you!
