Turbo Intake Pipe
Elevate MSRP: $159
Unlock more airflow for your T5-equipped Volvo C30 or S40 with a turbo intake pipe from Elevate. This high-flow pipe fits between the MAF and the turbo. Unlike the restrictive factory hose that shrinks to just 55mm, the Elevate unit features mandrel bends and a 76mm diameter for better throttle response, plus more power thanks to a 41% increase in internal volume. If that's not good enough, theTIP comes with all factory connectors to look OEM+.
Mk5 Gti Flare Kit & Wheels
Retro Modern Line MSRP: $599 & $299 each
Designed to pay homage to the classic GTIs, Retro Modern Line by fifteen52 has created this Mk5 GTI flare kit to bring some aggression to the exterior, or allow you to fit much wider wheels and tires with a bit of fender work. Made from high-grade plastic, the four-piece fender kit requires the OE GTI side skirts (not supplied) and mounts using the OE mounting locations and 3M adhesive tape. The parts will be available in Spring 2010. RML also has the 18x8.5" Snowflake wheels seen on the car. They're based on the OE Scala wheel and follow an earlier limited run of 15x8" Snowflakes.

BMW Racing Thermostat
Mishimoto MSRP: $60
If your tuned E36 Bimmer is running a little hot, Mishimoto might have the ticket. Its new Racing Thermostat opens at a lower temperature than stock (62°C) to allow coolant to flow through the engine sooner, thus keeping the engine cooler.

The box recalibrates the ECU for more aggressive power transfer to the rear wheels to create neutral handling and better traction off the line.

Super Challenge Brake System
Rotora MSRP: website
Stomping the middle pedal with a good set of brakes is akin to dropping a boat anchor out of the window on the freeway.
