Stanley Yan

Stanley Yan always wanted to create his own build. He considered Lexus as the platform for a short time, but says he quickly realized that’d be too cliche. Something like a Honda would’ve been perfect but it just doesn’t have the luxurious features Yan was looking for.

Then there’s the 2007 Acura TL. With it’s unique body stye, Yan immediately knew this was the platform he needed. There isn’t much aftermarket support for the TL, which arguably would turn some builders off, but for Yan, the challenge acted more as the driving force to succeed. He since equipped the engine with a Comptech M62 supercharger, supported with a Hondata FlashPro (dyno tuned), as well as an AccuAir e-Level and i-Level Management System.

Yan has also competed in a number of events and has even walked away with the Best Acura at 2015 DriftCon Afterdark. It seems as if Yan has successfully completed his build, with the final installation of an audio/video system and hardwood trunk floor being planned for the near future.
