Been doing a thing or two to your vehicle, but trying to find the perfect sound that comes from your tailpipes? Here’s some inspiration for you guys …

Boozina Programmable Hooter

Published by on Feb 14th, 2008, No Comments

boozinaLast year imported a few “Sunami Kits” – What we thought as a small novelty turned out to be quite the sleeper hit! – The 10 units flew off their shelves in a matter of days. Granted the Speed & Sound featured only added more to this crazy gadget.

Alas suppliers decided to give them the runabout when it came to product support and stock levels and had to discontinue this. Luckily a new unit arrived recently, the Boozina Kit – One can only wonder what kind of a chemically induced state the creator of this must have been under to choose the name, but this is way better then the Sunami.

At the heart of this kit is the programmable module and serial cable, this basically allows you to load your own range of sounds (up to 4) onto the unit. It comes with 4 default sounds (sirens, horns & Elvis Presley impersonations!?!?) – All software, cables, harness, etc are all included. All in all, not a bad kit for under R800.

Now if i can just get an UmshiniWa chant loaded for my next drive to Bloem.

Issue 71 Speed and Sound

Published by on Aug 6th, 2007, 4 Comments


Issue 71 of the Speed and Sound is hot on the shelves. This jam packed issue features some of the most inspirational vehicles we’ve ever laid eyes on.

Our cover car hails from the Big Boss Auto stable. This ultra rare two door Golf IV will keep you glued to the pages in amazement and awe. One-off wheels and mesmerizing paint job make this VW something special.

Just as rare is the Topsport tuned VW Corrado, yup, you heard right, a VW Corrado running a turbo VR6 lump with looks to match. It’s been a long time coming but finally it’s here, between our pages in all it’s glory.

In a change from what we’ve grown accustomed to, a box-shape Nissan Sentra Coupe graces us with its presence. Fully customized, inside and out, with a meaty turbo power plant to boot.

Hailing from the shores of Japan but now terrorizing the streets of South Africa, Des Gutziet’s Top Secret R34 Skyline is an absolute monster. I drove with him round Wesbank to give you a first hand account of the raw power this beast possesses.

The tech section gives you the run down of your wheels, just about everything you need to know about alloys.

With a health dose of speed and sound, the ICE section plays host to a supercharged M3 with a killer JL sound install. Neeresh also shows you how to build a wall, getting you in shape for some big numbers.


This months installment of VDUB brings you the carnage that was rounds seven and eight of the GTi Challenge as well as pics from the Krugerdorp hillclimb.

The cover car is a force to be reckoned with: A pitch black MK IV GTi that’s as loud as it is strong, with subtlety being the key.

We test the CiTi-R and the new S3 Audi (hey, it’s VAG – we’re allowed to!) to give you the truth about these well-hyped cars.

The Cape has always been big on styling and Noor’s Mk 3 Jetta is cleaner than Kojak’s head.

Shane's Zoopedup Pug

Published by on Mar 8th, 2007, 10 Comments

When it comes to modifying cars, it can be said that the Peugeot is not the easiest but it sure is one of the sexiest. Shane became a Pug fan having loved the 206 from the World Rally Championships.

With his new found passion for Peugeot Shane did what any Zoopedup man does, modify. First he slapped on 17″ Racing Hart Concepts mags to give the car more street cred. Exterior extras also included a mesh grill up front and a Power Flow Tailpipe. Since red was the in thing for his PUG he also installed under car neons (in red) and had the whole interior done in red suede to complement his new sound installation. Which consisted of one 12 Kenwood 1500w DVC sub connected to a 1100W Monoblock also from the Kenwood stable. To head up the install he selected a JVC front loader connected with 200W Kenwood splits to sort out the high ranges.
