Restorations are not to be taken lightly. It’s sometimes argued that a restored car isn’t a “show car” by regular standards, because the end product is maybe something that looks closer to factory original than “heavily modified”. Restoring a car to look exactly like something out of a comic book is another story altogether. Long story… Continue reading PROJECT D: 1987 Toyota Corolla Initial D Replica
GOT BOOST? Scion FR-S Turbo + Infiniti FX35 Supercharger
We often receive inquiries from people who want more power from their vehicle. The level of commitment varies from person to person, and is understandable. Everybody has their pre-determined budget and knows roughly what they want out of it. For some people, that can mean some quick bolt on mods to bring the car up from… Continue reading GOT BOOST?

Mazda RX8 + Honda S2000 (F20C) = RX2000?
Yes, if you read the title, you read it right. We were just having another ho-hum day here at Cyrious Garageworks when we got the call from Steve who had decided that he wanted to leave his old rotary engine in the past and replace it with a stout, reliable Honda F20C. Needless to say our reaction was “Hells… Continue reading Mazda RX8 + Honda S2000 (F20C) = RX2000?
WORLD WAR Z – From The Ground Up Pt. 2
Progress continued on World War Z at a good pace. The wheels were in the process of being produced, so focus was shifted elsewhere, namely under the hood and inside the car. When it comes to custom cars, you can certainly create a plan ahead of time and follow that as much as possible, but… Continue reading WORLD WAR Z – From The Ground Up Pt. 2
WORLD WAR Z – From The Ground Up Pt. 1
It’s not every day that you’re presented with a project created with the sole intention of taking on the entire world. That may be a bit of an overstatement, but when it came to this project aptly named World War Z, we were crossing into a territory that very few in the world, if any, have been given… Continue reading WORLD WAR Z – From The Ground Up Pt. 1

We’ve been fortunate enough to work on an early 240Z, and a late 370Z, as well as a few inbetween, so it almost feels like it’s one… Continue reading Cyrious Z’s!
Build: International Scout II Restoration
Restorations come in all forms, shapes and sizes, and this International Scout II is a prime example of a build where the vehicle came to us looking “not bad” by most people’s standards, but wound up requiring insane amounts of bodywork once we started digging in. Before we get to that though, let’s start right… Continue reading Build: International Scout II Restoration
RESPECT YOUR ELDERS: BMW E30 > 2JZ Swap
“Respect your elders” is what the car said on its windows as it rolled in through the doors of Cyrious Garageworks. Though it is indeed a great car in its own right, the tired old BMW M20 engine under the hood of this 1989 325i was preventing this car from demanding as much respect as it… Continue reading RESPECT YOUR ELDERS: BMW E30 > 2JZ Swap
