  • Chasing Baja: The Javier Avila Documentary

    Chasing Baja: The Javier Avila Documentary

    “Chasing Baja” is an inspiring feature documentary and bad-ass thrill ride about Javier Avila, who built his own off-road race truck from scratch on his own dime. We catch up with him as he aims to fulfill his dream of completing the Baja 500! Oh, and did we mention he's accomplishing all of this... from a wheelchair? All of our lives we have been told that we can accomplish anything we desire as long as we put our heart and minds to it. While this is in fact very true and we realize just how true it is the older we get, very few people act on their desires and dreams. A man who's called Jav by his friends is the exception to that rule and thanks to Fixed Heart Films we will have an opportunity to watch his journey from building his first-gen s10 i...

    Chevy S10 2.2L Performance Mods

    Okay, some of you guys have asked for a 2.2l performance sheet… well here you go
    Chevy S10 2.2L performance Mods
    Okay, so, some of you guys have asked for an “Engine build thread” on my findings of the 2.2L performance mods. So here is my build/and idea/ research thread.
    -My Current mods-
    • Custom cat back exhaust
    • K&N intake
    • Polished throttle body
    • 4.10 gears
    This here on a new motor could make about 110 – 115 at the wheels, maybe more.

    Fiberglass Fender Installation


    Hey brothers, Here you go, this is the way I did it. I hope this helps:

    1- I suggest doing one side at a time and get someone to help; it pays off at the end when you are trying to line up the hood. 2-Don?t try to install them on your lunch break. Allow your self a good day to install them. It takes time and a shit load of patience!! The time, effort and patience you put forth will reflect in the end product. 3-Disconnect the battery and take it out 4-Take out your headlights, pull up on the 2 slide tabs lift it out 5-Remove the plastic trim end piece where your windshield wiper mounts...
