It’s a brand new season of Drift Garage and Chris Forsberg and Ryan Tuerck have cooked up something new. This year Forsberg is going to be gutting and upgrading a Nissan Titan. Chris needs a towing adventure mobile for all his other vehicles, so the Cummins-powered Titan XD is going to be a perfect project.
While Forsberg is busy with that, Tuerck is going to keep himself busy upgrading his Scion FRS. The Tuerck "street car" is getting another round of upgrades with a race engine, an anti-lag system, a bigger turbo, and of course, more power. Can't. Stop Modifying.
Formula Drift Champion Chris Forsberg takes us on a tour of garages around the country, from professional outfits to grassroots backyard garages.
On a brand new episode of Garage Tours, Chris Forsberg stops by Fast Intentions in Simi Valley, California. Specializing in exhaust systems and twin turbo kits, co-owners Dan Akre and Tony Meyerson walk Forsberg through the development and fabrication process of their artificially aspirated powerhouses, which include new prototypes for both the Lamborghini LP and Audi RAV 10 engines. After that, Forsberg jumps in the time machine for an under-the-hood look at a 1,000-horsepower 1978 Trans Am (which just so happens to boast a truly crazy 300-horsepower nitrous boost) before calling it a day with a spin in his personal twin-turbo Nissan 370Z.
In this episode of Garage Tours, Chris Forsberg visits Nameless Performance in Woodland, Washington. Nameless is one of the largest manufacturers of custom performance exhaust systems for the Subaru market. Jason Griffith gives Forsberg a tour of the manufacturing division including the fabrication room with a cutting room, welding stations and the final assembly area.
John Hoyenga then tours us through the Motorsports division, introducing Forsberg to the rally program and the new Formula Drift program. Nameless driver Ryan Tuerck pops in to talk about his relationship with Nameless and his 2015 Formula Drift FRS!

There aren't many things in the realm of cars that are foreign to Chris Forsberg. But lowriders and hydraulics are some of those things, so Forsberg decided to get an education in lowriders from one of the best shops in the country for just that on this new episode of Garage Tours.
In this episode Forsberg visits Miranda’s Custom Car shop in Phoenix, Arizona—a lowrider shop driven by the passionate mechanic Luis Miranda whose built a reputation for attention to detail and artistic paintwork. Luis’ affection and commitment to custom lowriders and the lowrider culture runs deep. Miranda handles every process of the vehicle’s fabrications from sourcing parts to engine fabrications, custom upholstery, paintwork, and of course, hydraulics.
Forsberg gets a tour of the yard where vehicles, including some long lean ’58 and ’59 Impalas, are waiting for their transformation. Inside we see works in progress and lowriders in the final stages of customization. And finally! Forsberg gets his first ride in slammed down to the ground lowrider.
Welcome to the second season of Drift Garage hosted by professional Formula Drift drivers Chris Forsberg and Ryan Tuerck. This season we’re getting into TWO totally contrasting drift car builds. Chris Forsberg is upgrading a brand new Nissan 370Z and turning it into a mean street legal twin turbo 700 HP weekend warrior. Meanwhile, Ryan Tuerck has a project of his own upgrading his thrashed 20-year-old Nissan 240SX in an attempt to bring it up to snuff.
The series starts with Forsberg dumping the 370Z engine and Tuerck demoing his missile car to prep it for brand new parts.
Drift Garage airs alternating Tuesdays on Network A, be sure to leave your questions and comments below for Forsberg and Tuerck to answer in next week’s response video.
