Don't Get Caught
Since the prices of exhaust tickets have risen, it seems that it is not really worth it anymore to get an aftermarket exhaust. Well, Tanabe has the solution with its new Medallion Touring exhaust system. This new product keeps the sound under 93db, this means that you don't need to worry about the law pulling you over for that annoying noise that your car emits with those other exhaust systems. Tanabe has also ensured that the performance would not be sacrificed in that the piping is large enough to produce dyno proven results while maintaining great sound quality. Improve performance with paying the price with the new Tanabe Medallion Touring

Air, Oil and Water
When it comes to the air intake system, only air is desired. That's why AEM came out with this new filter does not require any oiling. It uses a Dryflow synthetic material that absorbs water, allowing it to dry faster and not suck up any water after cleaning. This new filter does not void the factory warranty either because there is no chance of getting oil into the intake tract and ruining any sensors. It is compatible with all existing AEM intake systems as well as most OEM intake systems. The new material is thick and heavy duty but does not impede the airflow into the engine. With this new design and technology, it would seem unnecessary to invest in a different re-usable filter. To take part in this new revolution, go to

Easy Tuning
No more messy or confusing wiring to deal with when using a stand-alone ECU for your Mitsubishi EVO IX, thanks to Motec's new plug and play ECU.

It installs in minutes and all it needs afterwards is some tuning to get your car running correctly. The software that is used to tune is free and can be downloaded. So stop messing with those wires and get your EVO running smooth with the new Motec ECU! Log onto for more details.

Nano Nano
Just when you thought that harnessing the power of the atom to make an explosive weapon was impressive, Eagle One has done something similar with their car care products. Okay, so they don't make weapons, but they do make wax and wheel polish that uses nanotechnology. This means that the wax spray uses minuscule particles that penetrate deeper into the paint surface to fill in scratches and protect your vehicles paint. The NanoWax Spray does not leave swirl marks or hazing to ensure a proper shine throughout. Eagle One's Nano-Polish can be used on chrome and aluminum wheels that features a formula that fills in minor scratched and provides protection against rust, oxidation, salt and acid. This new technology is new step in car care and will keep your car looking its best, even if it is your daily beater. To get more information on Eagle One products, check out their site at
