On The Same Wavelength
It is proven that people can see amber wavelengths better than normal light in the day and nighttime. All Quality Custom Auto Accessories has released their "Armor of Light" series to partake in this phenomenon. This series of products is a line of Universal Turn Signal DRL/Fog Light Controllers. What they do is convert your turn signals into amber daytime running lights so that your car is more visible to other people, in turn offering better crash avoidance at one-third of the energy costs of those other daytime running light converters. In addition, this modification can make your car look more high-tech, therefore making your car the ultimate attention grabber on the streets. Forget the other appearance modifications and get this device for your safety. More info can be had at daytime-running-lights.com

Change Your Oil Forever
Convenience seems to be the theme of new products today. Whether they are designed to be thrown away or kept forever, the point it that they are hassle-free so you don't have to worry. Like those disposable toilet bowl brushes, forget the nasty smell and mess that comes with the aftermath of cleaning the toilet; just throw it all away! Well, the new Lifetime Oil Filter from Pure Power! Is just the opposite. Unlike the throw away filters, save money by using this lifetime oil filter, since it is reusable. These filters have been field-tested and are proven to work 90 percent better than traditional oil filters. So obviously, they flow better and last longer. No need to worry about buying an oil filter anymore, just rinse and repeat.

Maximum Manifold
Planning to use your EVO as more than a streetcar? Want to maximize its performance so it can own everyone on the track? The new exhaust manifold from DC sports for the EVO VIII will help you get the most out of you turbo setup. This race-only manifold features a T-304 stainless steel construction and CNC flanges to ensure proper seal and remain leak-free. It eliminates the stock catalytic converter; so don't try passing smog as it is for off-road use only. For more information on this product, go to dcsports.com.

So Many Gauges, So Little Mess
If I needed to put a bunch of gauges in my car, I personally would not want to clutter my field of view with an A-pillar pod full of them. To me, it looks tacky and draws attention to all the wrong people, including cops. AEM has come up with an invention to remedy this sort of distaste with their new Serial Gauge. This gauge is revolutionary in that it is like having 19 gauges in one. It can simultaneously monitor boost pressure, air/fuel ratio, RPM, vehicle speed and more in its preset channels. Using a series of LED lights, the gauge notifies the user of problems in a certain channel. If you want to use more than one gauge, you can. The system comes with a "daisy chain" that allows the user to string together a series of gauges to individually monitor the desired channels. Unfortunately, it can be only used with their engine management system, but then again, if you need a lot of gauges, you're probably making a lot of power and are using an EMS anyway. So this product is not for those that like showing off their engine vitals to the car next to them for no reason. If you really want to monitor what's going on in your car, this gauge does all of that, literally. For more information, check out aempower.com.

Step Into the Matrix

Pulse Pressure

This unit is a direct bolt on to the fuel rail requires no additional fuel lines to install it. The regulator guarantees a 1:1 off-boost ratio for a perfect air/fuel ratio at idle and is adjustable from 1:1 to 12:1. If it does break, the unit is easily rebuildable; all it needs are new seals. So stop messing with those other regulators that are hard to tune and adjust to the ratio you desire and get this new regulator from Synapse Engineering.
