While many come to see the show cars, you have to remember the annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas is really a trade show for an industry that caters to tuners and garages all across the country. Companies from all over come out to display their new products, several which will hit the streets or racetracks in the next year if they're not already available. In no particular order, here are the top products we saw at the 2015 show.
Making sure your Honda stays fueled is just as important as making sure it's oiled. Hard cornering, acceleration, and braking will slosh that go-juice all over the fuel tank; that means you may start to lose power mid-corner or even into it if fuel travels away from your in-tank pump or pickup. DeatschWerks Fuel Systems showed off their new Modular Surge Tanks that will help make your fuel flow stay consistent, no matter how many g's you put your Honda through.
Love that classic TE37 look but want a deep lip and modern sizing? Then the new TE37V in 18-inch is your retro classic for your modded Civic.
However, if you want a modern take on the Gram Lights 57F, you might get a set of Volk Racing G50 wheels. Same technology-packed forged wheel but in a classic - and modest - five-spoke design.
Of course, if you want to be more budget conscious without much sacrifice, you can't go wrong with Gram Lights. Their new 57Transcend made its launch earlier in 2015 but the SEMA Show was its official unveiling. It features many interesting design cues, but the logo machining on the inside of the spoke is really nice and lets you know you are getting a genuine Rays product. No more decals to worry with here.
If your Honda Accord's seats are starting to look a little too worn, it may be time for an upgrade. Katzkin had this Accord Seat that featured diamond stitching insert and all leather that fits your OEM seat.
You want the maximum lightness but you're out of areas to remove weight? Then a set of titanium lug nuts might be your final step. Project Kics, the makers of the popular R40 Lug Nuts, has the Ti44 Elementek Forged Titanium lug nuts and wheel bolts in titanium blue and silver.
Enkei had their brand new GTC01RR, a lighter weight version of the super strong GTC01. It reportedly has the same weight as the RPF1 but far more rigid to take track abuse. Look for it next year with three different concave faces.
Keeping an eye on vital components as you're driving around the track is very, very important and your OEM dash just doesn't cut it. Racepack introduced the new IQ3S Street Dash, a complete dash that features four user-programmable pages and connects either to your OBD2 connector or any of your popular aftermarket EFI systems.
Not to be outdone, Auto Meter had their DashLink system. This is a Bluetooth enabled OBDII module that wirelessly connects to your iOS or Android device. So you can get full data logging, several different gauges, and G-readings all from your tablet or mobile phone.
And guess what? AEM has its own Dash Display & Logger, too! This bad boy has an improved screen and buttons, LED shift light and warning lights, and a fully configurable CAN bus input.
AEM also came to SEMA with its new X-Series gauges. In addition to being AEMs thinnest yet, its Digital Wideband UEGO AFR Gauge in particular (middle one in the picture; yes, we know it's mounted in a Mustang but that's what they brought to SEMA!) has been independently verified as the fastest responding air-fuel ratio meter on the market.
Need an Ethanol Content, Air/Fuel Meter, boost, and fuel temperature but only had space for a single gauge? Innovate Motorsports has you covered with the ECB-1 Ethanol Content Advanced Gauge. It's shown on an integrated OLED display and you can log them for review on Innovate's LogWorks software.
