Rail On Your EVO
Although some people like to use aftermarket fuel rails as dress-up components for their engine bays, Agency Power's fuel rail offers that along with functionality. Their new fuel rail for the '03 and up Mitsubishi EVO's are wider than stock, allowing more fuel to flow through. The main plus side to this rail is that it fits the factory fittings and fuel pressure regulator as well as aftermarket ones with no modification. Larger injectors fit perfectly in this rail, for when you plan to use a bigger turbo. Agency-power.com has more information on this product.


Catch What You Can
The 5Zigen ProRacer oil catch tank features a baffled plate within the tank to prevent any leakage. These tanks come in sparkling silver or flat black, so you can be super blingy or super stealth. Preventing oil sludge from going back into your engine is a good idea, so get this nifty product to stop it from doing so. 5zigen.co.jp has more information.


That's One Cool Nissan
Out of all the new micro-compacts on the road today, the Nissan Versa offers the most powerful engine, or at least the biggest one. Combining power and fuel efficiency is no easy task, but the Versa seems to do it well. So why not make that spectacular engine even more spectacular? The new AEM cold-air intake system can do just that. This new system uses AEM's Dry Flow filter technology for easy maintenance and superior filtration. Best of all, using this intake system does not void the factory warranty. So now you can pay off that Versa with the comfort of knowing that your engine is still backed by the factory and is making more horsepower than before. Now that's a win-win situation! AEMpower.com has more info on how to how to hook your new ride up.

Even Cars Need BracesIt's a no brainer that having a stiffer chassis can make your car handle better. So Cusco has come out with a new line of Power Braces for the new Subaru Sti's and Mitsubishi EVO's. I know I know, those cars handle well already, but these chassis braces help even more by reducing body flex when going into those crazy freeway off ramps. You can buy all of them separately, or all together, to achieve super-baller status. Just check out napsusa.com for more info.


Be In Control
The new EVC (electronic valve control) boost controller from HKS is capable of maintaining boost pressure at high RPM. This is important, of course, because overboosting is a detrimental problem in most high-boost applications. This device also has a new mapping feature so that the user can precisely tune the boost for throttle and RPM. The EVC comes in a sexy black case and has an LCD display with a white background for added style. Log on to hksusa.com for more information.


Rollin' On A Budget
Although Volk Racing's high-quality wheel are often expensive, weekend racers tend to not mind spending a lot of their hard-earned cash on them. After all, most of the Volk Racing line offers lightweight, strong wheels that can stand up to damn near any type of track abuse. The new Volk Racing Gram Lights 57Optimise was made for the racers on a budget. They are available in 17 and 18-inch sizes and come in gun blue, ceramic white and shining silver. Take a look at mackinindustries.com to find out more.


Shock And Awe
Using aftermarket springs or sleeve coilovers with stock shocks is so 10 years ago. OK, OK, so I still do it, but for other people like me, Skunk2 has come out with their new Sport Shocks. They use a dual tube design with precision valving to ensure superior durability, reliability and long seal life. These shocks are designed for use in conjunction with their springs and coilovers. They also have shorter shock bodies and strokes to have more travel at lower ride heights. Maybe I should get myself a set. Join me on a trip to skunk2.com to check out more info.
