*Exhale*… After a long 8 months, I finally had my RSX back – full identity change into a JDM Honda Type-R DC5 build.
CSF Then & Now + Our Relationship with Stanceworks
June 5, 2020
Everyone knows CSF as a cooling system manufacturer but, truth be told, that’s only part of the equation for us.
The CSF Racing & High-Performance Division was founded with different reasoning in mind – a deeper purpose than just pushing out products. Everyone at CSF Race eats, sleeps, and bleeds automotive aftermarket. That’s why we take such pride in our products – not only because we’re proud of what we create, but because of the relationships this allows us to create within the industry.

It was Spring 2019, and I was on my way to work, dodging cars through traffic on the infamous 91 freeway in Southern California. This was pre-COVID-19, so there were tons of semi trucks and commuters clogging up all six lanes of Calfornia concrete. On my usual +/- 1 hour drive to and from work, the light bulb went off my head…
Not Your Average Turbo S

What is a TOPCAR Stinger GTR? …Basically, you take a standard Porsche 991 Turbo S and turn the volume up to 11.
This build features TOPCAR’s Stinger GTR 18-piece body kit including custom front and rear bumpers, fenders, a custom diffuser and a ton of carbon fiber pieces. Painted in a BMW Frozen Grey color with yellow accents, both the interior and exterior have just the right amount of stealth and sport. This is a uniquely customized 991 Turbo S, created specifically for TOPCAR’s customer, Felix Ferro.
Built, Not Bought...

Recently, it seems it’s hard to find true enthusiasts in the car scene – someone that not only enjoys experiencing building a car and what’s left of the Southern California scene, but someone that truly can call it their passion and want to share that passion with others… Steve Samuel (@soofy619) is an exception to this.
Cooled by CSF, Straight from the Factory
March 5, 2020
Big news flooded the car scene back in 2017. For Honda fans, it was huge. The United States was getting its first ever Honda Civic Type R.
For decades, die-hard Honda fans have been importing Type R vehicles, parts, and other components. The company’s high-performance roots are unlike any other, and have been survived by a group of true “grassroots” enthusiasts since the Integra Type R – until the return of the NSX and release of the CTR.

The sound of a V8’s cold start, the satisfying feeling of a perfectly rev-matched downshift, or banging off a car’s rev limiter, sliding through a corner – all things that cannot be fully experienced without the internal combustion engine.
The 630hp Daily Driver That Means Business

Anyone that has truly experienced one, knows M cars are a class of their own. Sure, they sit within that popular luxury-performance segment alongside the -V lineup, AMGs, and more – but, unlike many others, they still sort of have that raw feeling when you’re behind the wheel that makes them so much more fun to drive than their plush counterparts.
The 986whp Build That Dominates the 1/2 Mile
February 10, 2020
We don’t want to be another company that just rocks products on the best looking vehicles – we want to show what our products are truly capable of, and why we make them.
Hence our project cars. Plus, who doesn’t like building badass cars and going fast?
Just Because You’re Old, Doesn’t Mean You Can’t Be COOL

The BMW E30 was your typical entry-level luxury car that started off with a two-door sedan style body. BMW eventually evolved the E30 into four door sedan models, convertibles and estate (“Wagon”) models in its later years. The E30 was the first 3 series to offer not only the estate and sedan body styles, but the first 3 series to offer a diesel engine and all-wheel drive models with the 325iX. The BMW Z1 roadster was also based on the E30 platform. Let’s not forget that the FIRST BMW M3 was built on the E30 platform (you can check out the world famous BMW E30 M3 with an S55 swap cooled by CSF here).
