How does BMW produce a direct mail marketing campaign? I’ll give you a hint: they don’t just send a photoshop file over to UPrinting like we do.
No, that’d be too easy. If you’re BMW’s M division you hire high-end marketing firm kbs+ to print the mail with a modified 2013 M6. We’ll let you know when the M6 printing press makes it into the RPMWare catalog. In the meantime, check out the video below to see how they did it.

Hybrid Racing products are available NOW in RPMWare!
Hybrid Racing is your go-to for anything that has to do with the Honda/Acura K-Series swap… and why shouldn’t they be?
Hybrid Racing earned their stripes by being the first to release motor mounts to cram a K-Series into an EG. To follow that up they were the first to releases a plug ‘n play harness, AC kits, shifter cables, fuel line kits and everything else need to make your swap go smooth. ‘Doing’ is what got them to where they are today; doing the swaps, doing the research and doing their homework on what the industry needs. But don’t take our word for it, check out some of their stellar products below:
Hybrid Racing Motor Mounts are quality through and through. All of the steel brackets are be laser cut, robotic welded and finished with a DuPont industrial powder coat unlike conventional black paint. The billet mounts are cut and machined through automated CNC machines, then polished to a high shine finish.dual hole brackets allow you to fine tune engine placement … Hybrid Mounts also offer two settings for engine placement. Dual hole mounting brackets allow you to fine tune engine placement backwards or forwards depending on which axles are being used. With OE style axles, the engine will be placed in the closets position to the firewall. In race dapplications, the engine may be shifted forward to avoid any interference between the larger center bara and the shock forks. A key design decision in the bushings is that it makes minimal physical contact with the mounting bracket or chassis. The shape of the urethane bushing is tapered to prevent binding between the chassis and/or mounting bracket. This allows the urethane to gradually absorb engine movement.
The Hybrid Racing Timing Chain Tensioner functions exactly like the OEM unit it replaces while improving upon the flaws of Honda’s design. The dual-ratchet design features hardened tool steel teeth that mesh with a heat treated chromoly piston. The teeth are crafted from the same Each Hybrid Racing K Series Chain Tensioner is manufactured from scratch …material used for most the ratchets in high-end impact wrenches. The piston is designed to fit into the K series engine’s timing chain guide tighter than the OEM unit does; this helps to avoid misalignment of the ratcheting mechanism and the premature wear that often occurs when aftermarket cams are used in conjunction with the OEM K Series chain tensioner. In addition, the internal oil passageways have been optimized to respond to oil pressure increase faster than the OEM unit; this becomes critical in motors that rev quickly and to high rpms.
Each Hybrid Racing K Series Chain Tensioner is manufactured from scratch. It is not a rebuilt and rebranded OEM tensioner like those sold by other companies. The Hybrid Racing chain tensioner comes with reliability that has been proven through more than a year of the most abusive testing.
The new Hybrid Racing Conversion harness incorporates updated wiring to make for an even easier install, updated install guide that includes more pictures and less text and the integration of the oxygen sensor connector making it super easy to install. No more fumbling with your stock We utilize brand new connectors and pins sourced from the same company that Honda utilizes …O2 sensor connector and cutting and connecting etc. When we construct a Hybrid Racing harness we utilize brand new connectors and pins sourced from the same company that Honda utilizes for their connectors. These connectors are ordered in bulk from Japan and ensure that your getting all new parts. In addition, all new connectors decrease the chance for errors in the harness as we do not solder any of the joints. The Hybrid Racing Conversion Harness allows for full functionality of the factory gauge cluster and comes with full replacement warranty.
