3G Fit: Boosted

Details on one of the first turbocharged, third-generation Fits.

By Aaron Gaghagen

Last November Honda’s all-new, third-generation Fit starred in the company’s Central Hall display at Las Vegas’ annual SEMA show, where top builders debuted their own renditions of the brand’s nimble, little hatchback. None disappointed, but some stood out more than others. Like this here buffed-up and boosted specimen with its New Jersey plates. We hooked up with the man whose name appears on those plates and learned more about this exclusive build.

Aaron Gaghagen is a veteran video editor and longtime Honda enthusiast. All told, he’s owned seven of them, and has enjoyed every single minute of wrenching on every single one. Except for that automatic one. That was probably a mistake. In 2010 Aaron teamed up with Brian Gillespie who along with another partner launched Nacho Speed Garage, a venture that capitalized on Aaron’s video expertise to do its part in entertaining and educating the Honda masses. Nacho Speed Garage took everything to the next level. Instead of reading magazines and cruising forums for content, Aaron and Brian were generating it themselves. The demise of Honda Tuning magazine in 2014 was the impetus for Aaron to do something even more impactful, though, which led to the creation of VTEC Academy and aims to carry that Honda torch forward in the same spirt of not just Honda Tuning but Nacho Speed Garage.
