Megan Racing Press Release – New Euro Version Lowering Springs for 2014+ Mercedez CLA250!

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.

PERRIN Press Release – New Shifter Stop for 2015 WRX!

October 21st, 2014 by Ernest Lo

Perrin_PSP-INR-018

Due to the slop of the internals in the transmission, there is an unacceptable amount of horizontal slop within the 1st- and 2nd- gear shift gates on the 2015 Subaru WRX. What should be little to no movement ends up being nearly 1.0 inch of play. This makes for an unnatural placement of shift gates and a lost feeling of which gear you are in. The PERRIN Shifter Stop removes this play, reducing the horizontal movement to 0.12 inches. This makes for a solid connection between the driver and transmission.

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.
