APR’s engineers have optimized the FSI head with proprietary, computer-controlled porting conducted on APR’s in-house 5-Axis Centroid CNC machine, our engineers have increased airflow by 17% on the intake ports and an additional 12% on the exhaust ports. Cylinder Head The engine’s boost-to-airflow ratio is reduced by roughly 10% while also reducing intake air temperature and alleviating backpressure. As a result, the spark knock threshold is extended up to 7 degrees allowing for a substantial increase in power.
Through specific Stage III+ calibration changes, this directly translates to a +70 HP gain over APR’s existing BPY, AXX and BWA Stage III Turbocharger System on 93 (R+M)/2 octane fuel and up to +126 HP on race fuel!
Five years prior to release, APR’s engineers began research and development on high flow cylinder heads. With the need to provide the most consistent and technologically advanced head porting solution, APR tested and quickly looked beyond manual head porting – each system is CNC machined to ensure strict repeatability. The goal was simple; a bolt on hardware solution with matching software, to integrate seamlessly into APR’s existing product line.

People love good secrets. So, when Advanced Clutch Technology (ACT) engineers began developing a solution to the common problem with standard two-piece wedge collars found in Japanese pull-type clutches, they engineered Monoloc — a secret design too good to keep quiet about.
Monoloc is a direct replacement and upgrade to the two-piece wedge collar in pull-type clutches for the Mitsubishi Evo, Subaru WRX, Subaru WRX STi and Mazda RX-7. Its one-piece construction eliminates the collar snap ring from bending or popping out of place, which typically leads to clutch failure or severe pressure plate damage.
“The problem usually occurs during racing or ‘enthusiastic driving,’” Dirk Starksen, ACT president and lead engineer on the Monoloc project, said, “The snap ring of the wedge collar sometimes pops out of place and doesn’t seat back into the release bearing. This causes the snap ring to bend and the clutch to stop working.”
Monoloc fixes these issues. The spring tension of the segmented retaining ring has been carefully calculated and tested for optimal performance. The one-piece wedge collar provides uniform loading on the bearing and pressure plate to assure proper alignment, regardless of driver influence or vehicle modifications. In addition, Monoloc’s hardened, Chromoly steel construction will provide years of service.
Monoloc can serve as a upgrade feature for pull-type pressure plates using a standard wedge collar design and is available separately, exclusively from ACT, for $80. It installs just like stock. Also, it is featured in a growing list of several newly-developed pull-type pressure plates available from ACT and distributors.

Hyundai has always produced solid, competent cars, however most new models come off like just another calculated move to keep pace with the competition. With the introduction of the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8-liter that all goes out the window. This Hyundai Genesis Coupe ranks as the second most powerful six-cylinder, rear-wheel-drive coupe in its class, and cynical gear-heads must now all agree that the Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8-liter is without a doubt the most interesting car that Hyundai produces.
First introduced three years ago from a shortened rear-wheel-drive sedan platform, Hyundai’s first Genesis Coupe was fun to drive, but it came up short on street sophistication and the base turbocharged four-banger was a tad under impressive. For 2013 Hyundai has given the coupe a striking facelift, featuring a handsomely revised body styling and improved interior materials, not to mention a new direct-injected version of the 3.8-liter V6.
Hyundai has improved the Genesis Coupe’s base 2.0-liter, port-injected four with a new twin-scroll turbocharger and a larger intercooler. Horsepower jumps from 210 to a vigorous 274. With its thoroughly efficient six-speed manual transmission the new coupe reaches 60 mph in 5.9 seconds, and covers the quarter-mile in 14.4 seconds.
Now, thanks to K&N‘s new 33-2481 high performance air filter, you can make Hyundai’s most interesting model even more exciting. By merely upgrading the OE air filter with a K&N 33-2481 reusable air filter, you can at once improve the overall performance of the new 3.8-liter mill, while also insuring excellent air filtration and engine protection.
Engineered to increase both horsepower and torque, and designed to simply drop into your existing factory air box, the K&N 33-2481 reusable air filter will be the last and only air filter you’ll ever need to buy for your 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe – plus you have K&N’s well-known Million Mile Limited Warranty to back that claim. It takes only minutes to remove the factory installed air filter and to replace it with the new K&N air filter upgrade and to experience the added performance benefits.
Depending on your driving conditions, servicing intervals can go up to 50,000 miles before cleaning is necessary, and cleaning the filter is as simple as following the four easy cleaning steps on a K&N Recharger Kit (part no. 99-5000).

DEI‘s new Titanium Pipe Shield combines the high heat tolerance of proprietary LR fiber technology with a unique rivet-based clamp-on shield design to improve heat dissipation and cooling. Where typical glass fiber shields can begin to fail at 900°F with the Mylar outer material cracking and flaking off, Titanium Pipe Shields provide heat protection up to 1350°F.
Constructed using our LR fiber technology, the outer layer is made from pulverized and stranded lava rock into a proprietary tightly woven weave for durability and strength. The inside material is made of a special high temperature resistant fabric (89% silica) designed to withstand 350 degrees more heat than glass fiber material. Our proprietary fiber technology combined with a unique shield standoff bracket design provides an air gap between the shield and pipe that together provides the maximum potential for cooling and heat dissipation.
Strategically placing a Titanium Pipe Shield near transmissions, brake lines, floorboards, body panels, diesel exhaust stacks or motorcycle pipes, radiant heat can be controlled for maximum protection and performance. Other uses include isolated areas such as sections of the exhaust pipe after the collector, an area that can heat transmission fluid, or along the path of an exhaust system in proximity of gas tanks, differentials and rear fascia. Titanium Pipe Shields are designed for multiple automotive applications as well as marine, powersports, diesel and industrial uses where heat dissipation and thermal control is needed.
