Ksport Airtech Suspension Systems
Say "goodbye" to one-size-kinda-fits-all airbag suspension systems of days past that required mixing and matching components, custom fabrication and troubleshooting, and "hello" to KSport's all-inclusive, model-specific, bolt-in, advanced air suspension systems. Each KSport system is developed for a specific vehicle, and comes complete with specific mono-tube dampers with factory-installed air bags, air compressors, lines, wiring harness, instructions, and more. Best of all, KSport dampers are constructed of billet 6061 aluminum, are resistant to the elements, offer 36 levels of dampening adjustment, and height adjustability either from within the cabin, or remotely via a keyfob-style controller.

AP Racing Brake Upgrade
If you're looking to upgrade the style and performance of your tuned WRX or S2000 with a big brake kit, but are wary of the harm in switching to poorly engineered kits, AP Racing has the solution for you with these two newly released kits. Consisting of two-piece, slotted or drilled-and-slotted (your choice) 14-inch and 13-inch front and rear rotors with six- and four-piston calipers for '02+ WRXs and STIs, and 13-inch two-piece rotors with four-piston calipers (front) and drilled or driled-and-slotted replacement rotors (rear) for the '00+ S2K, these kits will provide massive, repeatable increases in braking power, confident pedal feel, and around-town reliability for track day or the daily commute. Couple the combos with 1,300-degree Mintex pads, DOT-approved stainless steel lines and all necessary hardware, and you've got the same bolt-on performance for your ride that top professional race teams trust, at an affordable price.

Jgy Stainless Steel Brake Lines
Possibly one of the biggest drawbacks to modifying older cars is having to deal with worn chassis components like brake lines. Many OE lines are made of rubber that stretch and become brittle over time, leading to decreased braking performance, a "spongy" pedal feel, or complete braking failure. To make life safer and more enjoyable for owners of '91-'98 Nissan Sentras, JGY Custom is now offering complete nylon-coated stainless steel replacement brake line kits, that will help your Sentra's brakes perform better than you ever thought they could.

SP Racing Spool Valve
Free horsepower-you gotta love it. The guys at Chicago-based SP Racing like it so much, they're actually inventing products that make it. Like their new, patent-pending Spool Valve that increases the velocity of exhaust gasses exiting twin-scroll turbo manifolds to help spool turbos faster at slower engine speeds, increasing low- and mid-range torque and power dramatically. Full CNC construction in a variety of popular sizes guarantees performance benefits.
