AEM Press Release – AEM Short Ram Intake for Five-Cylinder 2011, 2012, and 2013 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5L!

October 28th, 2014 by Ernest Lo

AEM_21-733C

Volkswagen Jetta drivers wanted more power, better acceleration, and improved drivability from their fine German automobiles and AEM Intakes has been listening. AEM Intakes has designed a short ram intake system for 2011, 2012, and 2013 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5L 5-cylinder models that has been dyno proven to increase horsepower and torque. A stock 2011-2013 VW Jetta 2.5L is fed cold air from a scoop near the front of the vehicle, but is routed to an air filter box molded into the engine cover hovering directly over the hot engine and components. The air is then forced to make a 180-degree turn toward the throttle body. This results in a restricted path of air being passed directly over rising engine heat.

At AEM Induction Systems our engineers design our air intake systems as a fully integrated component of the vehicle. Improved airflow is only part of the power equation. The 21-733C short ram intake system relocates the AEM Dryflow air filter to the front of the engine compartment and with the help of powder coated aluminum air intake tubes it is able to make use of the cool dense air coming from the stock cold air intake scoop. This AEM short ram intake comes equipped with a non-oiled AEM Dryflow air filter 21-203DOSK, which delivers high airflow, excellent filtration, and exceptional engine protection. The mandrel bent aluminum air intake tubes are powder coated in a charcoal gray color for durability and a factory look.

All of the design features of the AEM performance 2011-2013 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5L short ram intake system are tuned to improve horsepower and torque delivery in a usable RPM range. On the dyno, 21-733C produced an estimated additional 7 horsepower at 4,200 rpm and an equally important 9 pound-feet of torque at 4,200 rpm over the factory air filter box and air intake tubes. In addition to increasing horsepower, lowering restriction and increasing airflow will improve acceleration and drivability. This boost in power is exactly what 2011-2013 VW Jetta 2.5L drivers wanted.

The 2011-2013 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5L short ram intake system is an excellent performance upgrade for your 5-cylinder VW Jetta. This is a complete short ram intake system including an application specific heat shield, all the necessary hardware, and step by step installation instructions. To provide peace of mind, AEM Induction Systems stands behind its products with a Lifetime Limited Warranty.

APR Tuned Press Release – New Turbo Muffler Delete for Various 1.8T and 2.0T Engines Featuring an IHI Turbo!

October 28th, 2014 by Ernest Lo

APR_MS100097

APR is pleased to present the high flow, Turbo Muffler Delete for various 1.8T and 2.0T engines featuring an IHI turbo.

All too often OEM components must sacrifice various performance minded characteristics in an effort to appeal to a wide variety of customers. While an enthusiast typically wants better boost response and more power, all while hearing the turbocharger breathe, a non-enthusiast may give up these characteristics for a quieter ride. In the case of the factory IHI turbocharger, a turbo muffler, or Pulsations-schalldämpfer, is positioned at the compressor outlet and is designed to reduce engine bay acoustics.

The APR Turbo Muffler Delete replaces the factory muffler with a straight, uninterrupted piece, CNC-machined from billet aluminum and anodized black. To ensure proper sealing, APR’s engineers took a two-part approach. A Viton seal is included and forms a seal between the base of the muffler housing and the new piece. With the seal in place and the outer flange installed, the muffler delete tube screws into place, forming a full, uninterrupted path for airflow.

K&N Press Release – Performance Air Filter For 2014 Toyota Tundra and Sequoia V8 Stock Air Filter Box!

October 27th, 2014 by Ernest Lo

K&N_33-5017

It would probably surprise a lot of people to read that Japan’s first full-size pickup truck, the Toyota Tundra, is actually built in the United States. The same applies to Toyota’s full-size SUV offering, the Toyota Sequoia. When the Tundra was released in 2000, it signaled another first for Toyota, which was offering a V8 engine in a truck. The Toyota Tundra, and Tundra-based Sequoia, has become exceedingly popular with consumers needing a full-sized truck keeping vehicle sales at or near production capacity.

The 2014 model year Tundra and Sequoia received a facelift and other changes while carrying over previous engine options. The changes my appear skin deep, however K&N engineers had to design a K&N washable air filter to fit the redesigned stock air filter box of 2014 Toyota Tundra and 2014 Toyota Sequoia models with a 4.6L or 5.7L V8 engine.

K&N has built a world renowned reputation with its reusable air filter technology. However, that same high-flow cotton filtration technology means that a K&N air filter provides less restriction than typical paper air filters. Reducing restriction can increase the efficiency of the combustion process. Allowing an engine to breathe easier can help a car or truck by freeing up horsepower and improving acceleration. Better acceleration and more power can come in handy while entering the highway, towing, and even during city driving. The simple drop in design makes a replacement K&N air filter an easy performance air filter upgrade.

Some might be worried that an increase in airflow comes at the expense of filtration efficiency and engine protection. K&N performs filtration efficiency testing following the internationally recognized ISO 5011 protocol to guarantee that our air filters will provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection. K&N makes this testing available on our website to help dispel the myth that a K&N air filter could allow engine damage.

K&N stock replacement air filters for street vehicles are covered by our famous K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty® and will be the last air filter your truck or SUV will need.

Made from cotton instead of paper, this air filter never needs to be replaced. 33-5017 will require cleaning every 50,000 miles under normal highway driving conditions. A K&N air filter can be considered the best car air filter for 2014 Toyota Tundra and 2014 Toyota Sequoia models with a 4.6L or 5.7L V8 engine. Since part number 33-5017 never needs to be replaced, over time it will pay for itself and because it can typically go 50,000 miles without service, it will also save time.

October 23rd, 2014 by Ernest Lo

MeganRacing_MR-LS-MBC117

Megan Racing Performance Lowering Springs for the 2014+ Mercedes CLA250 are constructed of SAE 9254 Cold Wounded Steel, one of the strongest materials available. The high tensile strength and phosphate powder coating delivers outstanding spring rates that are extremely durable and resist premature “sagging”.

The result is a spring that specifically offers race-car handling, yet maintains smooth and comfortable ride characteristics. Carefully matched springs rates provide exceptional handling, response, control and balance. These springs offer a generous drop to your car while remaining very “street-able” by having enough clearance to avoid bottoming-out; and the lowered center of gravity improves performance and increases stability, as well as enhancing the appearance of the vehicle. (Note: Spring rates and drop amount vary by different vehicle application and chassis load.)

AEM Press Release – Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0L Turbo Cornering Improved By AEM Performance Strut Bar!

October 22nd, 2014 by Ernest Lo

AEM_29-0006

Most car or truck enthusiasts picture a cold air intake system when they hear the name AEM. AEM Induction Systems has made great headway and built its reputation on cold air intake systems, but since 1987 Advanced Engine Management (AEM) has been in the business of improving performance. More power is only one aspect of the driving equation. Being able to properly control over 270 horsepower in the turbocharged 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0L is crucial to the performance driving solution.

When a car equipped with a McPherson Strut suspension system, like the 2010-2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0L turbo, is being driven through a turn there is inherent flex in the strut towers and chassis. It’s not uncommon to experience as much as 1/8” of shift in the strut towers during hard cornering. This flex can result in unpredictable handling of the car. An effectively designed strut tower brace will transfer the load incurred by shifting weight between the two strut towers and reduce the effects of chassis flex.

Unfortunately, many of the aftermarket strut tower braces available have a hinged design and therefore offer little support to the strut towers. An effective strut tower brace, like those from AEM, must be rigid throughout its length. Additionally, many of the strut tower braces on the market could interfere with performance upgrades such as a cold air intake system. This is where AEM Induction Systems factors part number 29-0006 performance strut bar for the 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0L turbo into the equation.

AEM performance strut bars are an excellent bolt on solution to the issue of strut tower flex in the 2010-2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0L turbo. AEM performance strut bars are constructed using thin wall mild steel tubing for a good strength to weight ratio. They are built with a rigid design to effectively tie the two strut towers together. Best of all AEM designed the 29-0006 performance strut bar with the AEM cold air intake system and intercooler system for the Hyundai Genesis turbo in mind. AEM performance strut tower brace 29-0006 will not interfere with the AEM cold air intake system or intercooler system for the 2010-2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0L turbo.

The AEM performance strut bar, number 29-0006, is designed as a bolt on chassis upgrade for the 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0L turbo and reuses OEM mounting hardware. The AEM 29-0006 performance strut bar will work with the factory intake system and is guaranteed to work with the AEM cold air intake system and intercooler system for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe turbo. As with an AEM cold air intake system, an AEM performance strut bar is designed to last for the life of your vehicle.

Constructed in the U.S.A with high quality mild steel, and protected with a durable powdercoat finish, AEM warrants that this performance strut bar will last for the life of your vehicle.
