VIP All The Way
5Zigen USA is proud to introduce the company's newest line of exhaust systems for VIP cruisers. All exhaust systems are made in-house at their factory in Osaka, Japan - the international capital of VIP style. MEGA mufflers have been favored among VIP car owners for their majestic tail-end design and 5ZIGEN's deep-tone sound tuning. All systems are JASMA-approved in Japan, which means all decibel readings measure an average of under 90dB. The full stainless axle-back system offers two versions of the tailpipes. The Heat Arrange model (blue burned finish) is available by order in addition to the standard polish finish. Applications include Lexus LS430, GS430, SC400, ES250, Infiniti Q45, G35 coupe, Acura RL, Legend, etc.5Zigen / 310.608.5575

RX-8 Stopping On A Dime
Now you can possess the same advanced brake technology preferred in NASCAR, Formula 1, WRC, Champ Cars and more at an affordable price. Brake Pro's 4-Piston, two-piece AP Racing front brake system is designed to be the ultimate brake upgrade for the Mazda RX-8. Packing a massive increase in stopping power, this kit gives the performance-minded driver full confidence on the street and at the track. As with all AP Racing kits, it's designed to perform with the factory OE master cylinder and is fully compatible with factory ABS subsystems. The aluminum calipers with 13-inch cross-drilled and slotted two-piece rotors are the foundation of this kit. The system comes complete with caliper mounting brackets, DOT-compliant stainless steel brake lines for both front and rear, high performance brake pads, all the necessary high-grade installation hardware and is available in two colors: red calipers with black script or black calipers with yellow script.Brake Pros / 800.711.4123

Gettin Low
ST Suspensions announces their performance coilovers for the 1999 to 2004 Mazda Miata that enable owners to lower their vehicles 1.2 to 2 inches on both the front and rear axle. The preset dampening rates permit customized lowering of the suspension and create an optimized balance of sportiness, comfort and safety. Each coilover is constructed of zinc-plated, threaded strut housings. All ST Suspensions coilovers pass stringent German TUV safety and quality testing standards.ST Suspensions / 559.875.0222

Ripp It Up
RIPP Modifications is proud to announce the addition of a fourth clutch and flywheel program for the fourth generation Mitsubishi Eclipse GT V-6. Constructed using a mix of Carbon and Kevlar, the disc can take all the heat you throw at it, but there's a soft side too. The real trick is in the progressively sprung pressure plate, which gives these clutch kits a smoother engagement. All RIPP clutch kits use an 11-pound flywheel with replaceable center ring and throwout bearings.Ripp Modifications / 718.442.4723

Give Me Bass
Pioneer Electronics USA Inc. is rolling out its newest line of competition-grade SPL amplifiers, designed and engineered to generate massive power necessary for extreme sound pressure levels. The new Premier PRS-D2000SPL and PRS-D1200SPL digital mono amplifiers have the muscle power to handle multiple subwoofers for intense bass.

Carbon Based
Impact Racing CF draft helmets represent the latest in technology, performance and function, resulting in this handmade ultra-lightweight carbon-fiber helmet. The air draft helmet project uses Impact's new solution to air induction that provides A/C, anti-fog and a system to reduce air contamination inside the helmet. The Venturi Cowl Induction circulates air around the head through whisper channels while creating positive air pressure to prevent contaminated air from entering the helmet. The result is cool, clean air and a clear shield all race long. The shell's construction features super-lightweight exotic aerospace carbon fiber with a clear finish. An extended chin foil captures downward airflow to reduce helmet lift and buffeting. The helmet also features interchangeable cheek pads for a custom fit.Impact Racing / 317.852.3067

NOS It Up
NOS High Performance Energy Drink, named after the most recognized brand in nitrous oxide - Nitrous Oxide Systems - is now available in a 22oz plastic, resealable bottle. The NOS beverage includes powerful and healthy ingredients such as: Taurine, Ginseng, D-Ribose, L-Carnitine, Folic Acid and Vitamins C, B6 and B12. In fact, NOS has 140 percent of Vitamins C, B6 and B12. Packing the most power per ounce, NOS is now available in three sizes: 16oz cans, and 11oz and 22oz plastic bottles.Holley / www.holley.com

Strictly Undercover
Lidatek Manufacturers, makers of the world's smallest Laser Defense System, is officially announcing the release of its Stealthy Defense against police speed traps - the LE-30. The LE-30 goes beyond simply detecting a LIDAR [Laser] Gun and sounding an alarm. It immediately locks onto an incoming laser signal, produces additional laser pulses for the laser gun to process and provides the driver with a five-second period of protection, to check and if necessary adjust their speed to the legal limit. The LE-30 then shuts itself down automatically to eliminate suspicions by the police officer attempting to measure the vehicle's speed. It uses real Laser Diodes - just like the LIDAR Guns. Because of its small size, LE-30 installations are virtually unnoticeable.Lidatek / 425-806-2044

Sway Patrol
The new 2007 350EVO sway bars are here for the Nissan 350Z, offering improved dampening characteristics in all three settings and come with all necessary hardware. The sway bars have been designed, tested and proven at the track time and time again on 5Zigen's race 350Z. Setting them apart visually is the extra-tough metallic silver powder coating. The 2007 350EVO bars are designed for track, performance street, Grand-Am and SCCA racing.350EVO / www.350evo.com

ICE, ICE, Baby
No, Vanilla Ice isn't making a comeback. However, ICE Inc., Denver's only cryogenic material enhancement facility and manufacturer of high-tech, computerized, dry cryogenic material enhancement equipment, just completed the final stage of performance testing on their line of NGK manufactured, cryogenically enhanced ICEPlugs. Independent dyno testing showed consistent horsepower gains of up to 6 percent. This gain was demonstrated by dyno testing both test vehicles (a four- cylinder sport compact and an eight-cylinder sedan) in back-to-back comparisons of horsepower output at the wheels. First using new, standard specification NGK plugs and immediately followed by using a new set of the same NGK spark plug with the cryogenically enhanced ICEPlugs. By applying its cryogenic technology to the spark plugs, ICE achieves a significant reduction in the material grain boundaries that cause electrical resistance. By removing these grain boundaries, more electrical energy is transferred to the spark, thus resulting in increased performance. Look out for Turbo's test on the plugs in a future issue.ICE Inc. / 303.295.1900

Just Like Magic
Black Magic introduced the new Black Magic Anti-Static Dust Guard spray. The special formulation uses anti-static agents to help minimize dust accumulation and keep your car's interior surfaces cleaner longer. This spray contains Fadeblock - an exclusive component that provides protection against the sun's harmful rays by diffusing UV radiation that can cause fading, drying or cracking, a valuable component in the summer months.Black Magic / 800.416.1600

Faster Than Superman
FAST XFI Touch Screen Dash/Data Logger's highly advanced system provides vehicle/engine dashboard read-outs and stores information at a rate of 1,000 samples per second for precise data analysis. With the standard 2MB memory module, you'll have over an hour of data stored for later analysis. Optional memory modules up to 16MB are also available. The FAST XFI Touch Screen Dash/Data Logger features a 6-inch, fully programmable LCD touch screen that can display data in multiple ways, such as scales, units and gauge configurations. The durable and attractive unit includes a backlight display so it can be easily read, day or night, and the touch screen system makes inputting your commands a simple, one touch operation. The dash/data logger monitors and displays output from a variety of sources, including frequency (rpm, wheel speed, etc.), analog input and sources that require programmable input parameters, including MAP and MAF.FAST / 800.334.8355

Down For A Three Way?
KW Suspensions 3-way adjustable racing coilover is now available for each Nissan S-series application. KW 3-way adjustable Competition Coilovers, designed to be used in professional motorsports, represent the latest in mono tube technology. KW's 3-way solution offers one of the broadest and most significant adjustment ranges found in the industry today. Virtually unaffected by increasing operation temperatures, the 3-way system can be maintained easily and serviced at the track. KW 3-way systems differ significantly in valve technology compared to conventional mono tube shock absorbers using shimmed valve stacks. The 3-way's rebound forces rely on preloaded jets, using specific needles. A versatile pre-configurable blow-off valve manages the main compression forces. Every system features separate low- and high-speed compression adjustments on the remote reservoir, with low-speed rebound adjustments on the piston rod.KW Suspensions / 559.875.0222

Meshed Up
5Zigen introduces a new wheel from its Sports Engine line LX9000. LX9000 is the legitimate dress-up wheel with the traditional mesh design. As a junior version of the popular SC3000, the classic mesh with polished lip LX9000 suits many styles of vehicles. Sizes start from 16x6.5 to 18x8.0.5Zigen USA / 310.608.5575

Cool Off
DME's radiator diversion panel maximizes the cooling capabilities of the radi-ator. Rather than letting air escape through structural gaps on the vehicle it's re-directed into the radiator. By increasing the amount of airflow passing through the radiator, the radiator's efficiency is improved. Coolant temperatures are kept consistent under all driving and track conditions. The panel is easy to install using standard hand tools.DME / 626.968.5147

Trippin LSD
Making power is one thing, but getting it to the ground is a different story. The factory open differential can waste power by applying too much power to one wheel. To remedy the power loss a limited differential should be added. American Motorsports Co. released a helical-cut limited-slip differential capable of handling up to 800 hp for sport compact vehicles. With the addition of a limited-slip differential, both wheels provide equal power distribution, which allows for better stability around tight cornering. Manufactured from high-grade steel, the differential carries a limited lifetime warranty.American Motorsports Co. / 714.225.1374
