AIRAID Press Release – AIRAID Has 2015 Mustangs Covered!

October 20th, 2014 by Ernest Lo

AIRAID_450-328

The 2015 Mustang is all-new and better than ever, so AIRAID pulled out all the stops to develop the best Cold Air Intake systems for the all-new platform. Building on AIRAID’s extremely popular Cold Air Intakes for late-model Mustangs, AIRAID’s new MXP-Series Intakes for the 2015 5.0L GT and the 2.3L EcoBoost deliver what performance enthusiasts demand: easy bolt-on performance gains and great looks in one complete package.

The new intakes feature a specially designed one-piece rotomolded intake box that draws cool outside air from the factory cold air duct location while having a unique shape that promotes airflow all the way around the filter. The all-new air box design utilizes a lid with a Plexiglass window that adds underhood styling while keeping the filter isolated from hot engine compartment air and allowing the user to keep tabs on filter condition. The massive 1300-cfm air filter is available with traditional oiled filter media in red or SynthaMax dry media in red, blue, or black. All AIRAID filters are washable and reusable while carrying a lifetime warranty.

New application-specific intake tubes connect the air box assembly to the throttle body on the engine. Designed to maximize airflow and eliminate restrictions, the 5.0L intake tube measures 4″ in diameter at the throttle body to support other engine modifications while having a specially formed venturi to ensure accurate MAF sensor readings. The 2.3L EcoBoost intake tube has similar features and is 3.5″ in diameter at the throttle body.

Skunk2 Press Release – New D16/ZC Alpha Series Connecting Rods Lite Version!

October 17th, 2014 by Ernest Lo

Skunk2_306-05-1210

Skunk2 is proud to introduce its all-new Lite Alpha Series Connecting Rods for Honda’s D16A and ZC engines. The Lite rod is just as durable as other Alpha rods however thinner making it much lighter than any other rod out there.

Alpha Series Rods are forged from select 4340 chromoly steel and feature a thinner straight H-beam design, resulting in the ultimate strength-to-weight ratio. The D Lite Rods were designed for the Naturally Aspirated or Low Turbo build D Series. The D Lite rods can withstand up to 450+ hp all while maintaining a light weight design. 4340 chromoly is one of the strongest materials available; however, not all 4340 chromoly is the same. As such, Skunk2 relies on extensive material testing and works closely with its foundry to produce high-quality rods at an affordable price. Comprehensive heat-treating, tempering, and shot-peening processes together ensure that each Alpha Series Rod remains consistent and strong. Finally, each rod is magna-fluxed to ensure integrity and that each process has been completed thoroughly and according to Skunk2’s rigid specifications. Engineers made use of FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to determine high-stress points and implemented features to reduce wear and increase strength.

Skunk2’s straight design distributes stress across a larger area when compared to tapered rods, providing additional support where necessary. Alpha Series Rods are manufactured from two-piece forgings, resulting in optimal grain orientation along the rod cap for increased strength. By orienting the metal’s grain in the direction of stress along the rod cap, perpendicular to the stress exerted along the beam, strength is significantly increased. Skunk2’s two-piece forgings provide a precision-tight fit between the rod’s cap and its beam without resorting to the brittle materials required by other processes. Alpha Series Rods also feature dual oil passages at their pin ends, providing additional lubrication and cooling, which leads to an even stronger, more durable rod. Unlike other designs, Skunk2’s carefully positioned, offset oil passages help deliver lubrication around the entire wrist pin, during each phase of the engine cycle.

Connecting rod bolts endure more stress than any other engine fastener. Each Alpha Series Rod features high-quality, Skunk2-branded, 3/8-inch ARP2000 bolts. ARP2000 rod bolts are forged, heat-treated, precision-machined, and capable of clamping loads as high as 220,000 psi. Precision-machined, bronze wrist pin bushings are also fitted to each Alpha Series Rod for increased wear resistance, and are compatible with most aftermarket pistons without additional machining.

Only Skunk2’s Alpha Series Rods feature our unique design, precision machining, and are capable of handling more than 450 hp, all at an economical price.

K&N Press Release – K&N Intake for More Performance from 2012 & 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 5.0-Liter!

October 16th, 2014 by Ernest Lo

K&N_69-3534TTK

The sight of an original 1969 or 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is enough to make Mustang fans feel like a kid on Christmas morning. The Boss 302 moniker is synonymous with performance as the original car was developed to meet homologation rules for SCCA Trans-Am Series racing. With such a rich racing heritage attributed to the Boss 302 any idea of resurrecting the iconic nameplate left the modern Ford Mustang 5.0 with large shoes to fill. Fortunately for Boss 302 purists the 2012 and 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 5.0L did not disappoint.

The 2012 and 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 5.0L uses the same engine as the Mustang GT. However, extensive modifications were made to the late model air intake tract, including the manifold, cylinder heads, and camshafts. While the Mustang GT 5.0-liter engine is fast, the 2012 and 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 5.0-liter engine produced an additional 32 horsepower and is rated at 444 horsepower from the factory.

K&N air intake designers knew there was room for more performance from the Boss 302. Owners seeking this extra boost in power can now install the 69-3534TTK performance air intake system. 69-3534TTK from K&N is precision-engineered to be a simple-to-install performance add-on. The backbone of this intake system is a free-flowing mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube which helps to minimize restriction, allowing your engine to breathe easier. A durable black powder coated finish is applied to the tube, providing a sleek appearance under the hood that will look great for years to come.

K&N equips 69-3534TTK with the oversized chrome-top RF-1048 air filter, providing a large surface to help increase airflow while providing outstanding engine protection. The filter is made with K&N’s famous high-flow filter media so it’s a washable and reusable air filter which can go up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions. To top it all off, a heat shield shrouds the air filter under the hood, helping to direct air entering the factory fresh air scoop into the engine.

All of the design features of the 69-3534TTK performance air intake system work in perfect harmony to deliver increased performance. On the dyno, 69-3534TTK produced an estimated additional 17.02 horsepower at 6700 rpm and an impressive 10.18 pound-feet of torque at 3400 rpm over the factory system when tested on an otherwise stock 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 5.0L.

The 69-3534TTK performance air intake system for the 2012 and 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 equipped with a 5.0L engine. With simple to follow instructions and no need to make any other modifications to the vehicle, you’ll be on the road in approximately 90 minutes with more horsepower under your right foot.

If all that weren’t enough, K&N backs the 69-3534TTK with the industry-leading K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty. If you’re looking to take your 2012 and 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 5.0L to the next level, look no further than the 69-3534TTK Typhoon air intake system.

MeganRacing_MR-CDK-SFR12-RS

Megan Racing introduces the new SPEC-RS Coil Over system for the 2013+ Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S. Featuring 32 levels of damper force adjustment, where compression and rebound adjustments are separate for increased tuning capability. The coil-over body also features separate spring perch adjustment and full shock height adjustment independent of spring pre-load to retain full suspension stroke while allowing the vehicle to be corner-balanced, which is often an integral part of suspension tuning as an aggressive alignment. These damper kits are then perfectly matched with front and rear Pillow Ball upper mounts for to reduce suspension deflection and camber plates are utilized for strut-type suspension applications.

Compression and rebound settings are easily adjusted through a individual adjustment knobs located at the top of the damper for rebound adjustment and on the external reservoir for compression adjustments.

AEM Press Release – 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra Gain Power with AEM Air Intake System!

October 14th, 2014 by Ernest Lo

AEM_21-8032DS

The Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size pickup trucks were first introduced in 1999, and are now in their third generation of production. The 2014 Silverado and Sierra can boast a level of technological sophistication not previously seen in GM trucks. The demand for more power and greater fuel economy means the new technology isn’t limited to the cab of the truck. The 2014 Chevy Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra are powered by the new Generation 5 LT power plants also referred to as EcoTec3. Features like direct injection, continuously variable valve timing, and active fuel management help meet the mandate for power and fuel efficiency in both the 5.3-liter or 6.2-liter V8 engine options.

A truck engine this refined deserves an equally sophisticated air intake system from AEM Induction Systems. The AEM 21-8032DS Brute Force Air Intake System utilizes a rotational-molded polyethylene enclosed air box and intake tube to reduce restriction and increase airflow to the engine. The enclosed air box helps to maintain near ambient inlet air temperature. Both laboratory and road testing were completed to ensure the AEM Air Intake System will increase performance while staying within factory operating specifications.

An added benefit of the enclosed air box used in AEM Air Intake System 21-8032DS is that the air filter is shielded from debris and water encountered in on-road as well as off-road environments. Plus AEM incorporates a Filter Minder into the design of 21-8032DS, which allows the user to visually monitor air filter maintenance intervals without opening the air box.

At the heart of AEM Air Intake System 21-8032DS is the relatively large and rugged AEM Dryflow Air filter, number 21-2278DK. This over-sized washable and reusable air filter is designed with AEM Dryflow synthetic air filter media. This special filtering media exhibits a three-dimensional property which allows us to achieve high airflow and low restriction without compromising high filtration levels or dirt holding capacity. AEM Dryflow air filters are simple to clean using air filter cleaner part number 1-1000 and do not require the use of oil.

All of the design features of the AEM 21-8032DS Air Intake System are tuned to improve horsepower and torque delivery in the most used RPM range. On the dyno, 21-8032DS demonstrates power gains throughout the RPM range with the largest gain of an estimated 10 additional horsepower coming on at 4,700 RPM. Possibly more impressive is the new torque curve shown in dyno testing. A peak estimated torque gain of 11 pound-feet comes on at 4,400 RPM.

The AEM 21-8032DS Air Intake System is an excellent performance upgrade for your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 or 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 equipped with either V8 engine option. This is a complete air intake system including 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.
