If you want to check out the Tjin Edition/UTI Ford Focus up close and you live in the so cal area; the car is parked outside of the Cerritos Ford dealership!
The Tjin family is producing another hot Camaro for SEMA this year only this time instead of Neil “The Ninja” at the helm its his brother Gene “Don’t Call Me Napolean Dynamite” Tjin at the helm. Despite my close ties with the family I couldn’t get too many details about what else they have in store for Gene’s Camaro but I would assume some type of boost will be on hand. If you’re feeling the exterior of this car as much as I am you can head over to the Chevy SEMA facebook page and vote for this car to win best Camaro. If you click the thumbnail below you can get a wallpaper sized version of the pic so you can rep Gene’s Camaro on your desktop.
This just hit the ol’ inbox a few moments ago. It looks like our buddy Neil Tjin is buliding a 2011 Ford Mustang for SEMA this year. Expect a full dismantle and rebuild from the Tjin-master as well as a supercharger, Forgestar wheels, and a custom body kit designed by Neil himself and produced by Extreme Dimensions. If you want to keep up with the build then add neiltjin.com/blog and facebook.com/semabuildups to your favorites!
September 8th, 2010 Laguna Niguel, CA – Tjin Edition continues to push the envelope and step outside the box with their latest project, a brand new 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT. Over the past 7 years, Tjin Edition has partnered with some of the top OEM manufacturers in the world including Chevy, Pontiac, Scion, and Honda; this year for the first time ever Tjin Edition will be joining forces with Ford Motor Company.
Tjin Edition led by Neil, Mei, Gene, and Collin Tjin along with Brian Garin and Mike Hyun from Real Auto Works in Long Beach, California will have their hands full as they are completely transforming a brand new black 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT for this years SEMA show.
Tjin Edition teamed up with Josh Cloud from Gurnade Design Firm, and Cloud was put in charge of producing the rendering for the Tjin Edition Ford Mustang 5.0 GT. As with all Tjin Edition projects, the Mustang 5.0 GT will be completely stripped, gutted, and transformed into a truly impressive piece of automotive machinery. With the new 5.0 -V8 motor in place, it comes as no surprise that Tjin Edition has teamed up with Vortech Superchargers, MagnaFlow Exhaust, American Racing Headers, Nitrous Express and Royal Purple.
Besides the “GO” aspect of this build, this Tjin Edition Ford Mustang 5.0 GT will be sporting a custom DuPont Cromax Pro paint job, which will be handled by Luis Rodriguez from L&R Paint and Body in Orange, California. This one of a kind Mustang will also be outfitted with a Webasto sunroof, Unique Fabrication metal wing, Light WurkZ LED headlights and fog lights, Ignited HID’s, StreetGlow lighting, custom Third Shift Studio emblems, Trent Trick Upholstery bolts, and a custom designed Tjin Edition / Gurnade body kit, which will be produced by Extreme Dimensions.
The Tjin Edition Ford Mustang 5.0 GT suspension will be highly modified with a brand new, fully digital air suspension kit from Air Lift, and an Eibach anti-roll kit and trailing arms. The Mustang fenders will be tucking a custom set of brand new 20″ Forgestar
CF5 (Concave Forgestar 5-spoke) wheels, which are matched up to super wide Falken tires. Sitting nicely behind the Forgestar wheels are a massive set of front and rear Baer rotors and calipers, which will help this supercharged Ford Mustang stop on a dime.
Real Auto Works will be completely transforming the interior and audio set-up in the Mustang with a set of custom wrapped Status Racing seats and harnesses, Auto Meter Ford gauges, a STACK cluster, Innovative Motorsports 0T-2 unit, a AZENTEK smart mirror, a Recaro baby seat, Scosche wiring, Optima batteries, a Metra double-din trim panel, a Pioneer head-unit, and Image Dynamic speakers, subs, and amplifiers.
Weekly updates on the Tjin Edition Ford Mustang 5.0 GT will be available at the 2010 SEMA build-ups Facebook page, (http://www.facebook.com/semabuildups), the Tjin Edition twitter page (http://twitter.com/TjinEdition), as well as on Neil Tjin’s blog (http://neiltjin.com/blog/). Tjin Edition would like to thank Ford and all their amazing partners for this wonderful opportunity, and they are excited to debut their 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT in the Air Lift Company booth (#23533) at this years SEMA Show!

Got a spare $50k laying around and don’t know what to do with it? Well how about owning one of nicest 4 door ER34 Skyline ever built? You read correctly, the “Tjin Edition” ER34 built by Neil Tjin (several times over) is officially up for sale. Got the coin? Hit the dude up!
Neil Tjin’s 2010 Chevy Camaro was easily among the top 5 overall best in the show. In fact General Motors gave this car the award for “best GM” on the show floor and that is saying A LOT because there were some top notch GM’s there. Neil’s style has really come along way from his S14 from way back when to now although some things remain the same in his creation, such as the pin striping and the use of 3-piece forged wheels (iForged on the Camaro). It also seems like he hasn’t gotten tired of the color green yet. I’d bet many people winced when he told them he was going to build a green Camaro but looking at the finished product I don’t think he could have chosen a better color. Nice work Mr. Tjin!
Check it out, UrbanRacer.comhas a preview of what Neil Tjin is building for SEMA this year. If the final product looks anything like the rendering then it I think this will get a lot of attention on the show floor. I look forward to seeing it in person at the show! What do you guys think of it?
This wheel brand has been around for a while now. Its called “One Lug Wheels” and as the name suggests they’re engineered to give a race-inspired one lug look. They have several styles with a one lug design and they’re all pretty hot. The wheel above is the OLW1 which is a forged five-spoke multi-piece design that would be at home on more than a few types of makes and models.
