Sumitomo Htrz III Tire
Some things are worth the wait. And in the case of Sumitomo Tire's new HTRZ III maximum performance tire, that's definitely the case. Backed by Sumitomo's reputation for precision engineering and innovative technology, the HTRZ III, is a well-balanced combination of Euro performance and street tuner appeal-just what performance enthusiasts want. Designed for today's most popular performance vehicles, the HTRZ III delivers enhanced traction-in wet and dry conditions-exceptional handling and a new level of performance. A highly engineered casing platform coupled with a sophisticated tread design makes the HTRZ III a tire that's functional and looks good. The advanced five-rib asymmetric tread pattern of the HTRZ III merges cornering with straight-line stability for enhanced maneuverability and an excellent ride. Long lateral grooves evacuate water from the center of the footprint while four straight, wide grooves further heighten drainage for improved wet performance. Siped tie-bars reinforce block rigidity for additional control. A 3-D wave wall increases drainage capabilities and reinforces center rib stability. The high-rigidity construction of the HTRZ III, including strengthened, wide steel belts, high-tension casing plies, reinforced construction and the advanced silica tread compound, marks a significant step forward in high-speed steering stability. The HTRZ III is available in more than 30 sizes including diameters between 17-22 inches and aspect ratios of 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50. Featuring a Y speed rating, the HTRZ III is a direct replacement for many performance vehicles and remains a true performance upgrade for tuner segment vehicles like Honda, Nissan and Subaru.

E-Procat Catalytic Converter
Some aftermarket catalytic converters either aren't high flowing or are illegal. The saga of the E-ProCat, which aimed to address these problems, began when a customer asked E-Shift to rebuild and modify his Accord. But the design of the stock exhaust brought the project to a halt. The company challenged themselves to create a better flowing exhaust, one that would not cause a "Check Engine" code and one that was completely OEM-compatible in terms of the exhaust system. The staff at E-Shift compared and evaluated cats that would meet their goals. The E-ProCat was their answer. The E-ProCat comes wrapped for added heat protection, and for a more race-oriented appeal. Gains as high as 29 hp and 21 lb-ft of torque were realized on a '04 Acura TL.
