What's hot and new

Jun 1, 2009

Okada Projects
Plasma Lift Ignition System
The Plasma LIFT coil enhancement for coil-over-plug and other ignition systems has been extensively tested and proven to provide reliable performance in a cost-effective product. The Plasma LIFT connects at the power side of the ignition coil and increases spark voltage, which is especially beneficial for turbocharged engines. When turbo pressure is increased, the engine requires a much higher spark voltage. If this extra voltage is not delivered, it can cause a misfire; Plasma LIFT prevents this misfire.

Snow Performance

The Stage-3G system for gasoline engines is, in fact, the most advanced, most sophisticated water-methanol injection system on the market, featuring the 3-D controller which offers more versatility while providing smooth power gains under all conditions.

BMP Designs
LED Shift Knob
BMP Design’s new custom gear shift knobs feature a clearly visible LED display of the selected gear on the top of the knob in any of four display colors. Simple installation involves only one set screw and two wires. The stylish knob learns any shift pattern by simply passing through the gears and fits most vehicles with shift lever diameters of 10–14mm. Available in three colors: classic titanium, white or black.

Synthetic Universal Power Steering Fluid
Many OEMs recommend changing power steering fluid at regular intervals. Accumulation of wear material and other debris can contaminate the fluid and break down its protection properties. AMSOIL Power Steering Fluid delivers better lubricity and reduced friction and is formulated with a high viscosity index that allows immediate lubrication at start-up and in cold temperatures.

Super Sound Blow Off Valve VD
The successor to Blitz’s popular DD BOV is the Super Sound Blow Off Valve VD. VD stands for Venturi Drive, which creates a very sharp blow-off sound using the venturi effect. A 36mm diameter on the big valve with a special rubber seal ensures a leak-free environment even at high boost. The VD BOV can be vented to the atmosphere or recirculated.

Wideband AF Gauge
Utilizing the latest Bosch 5 wire-heated LSU 4.9 wideband O2 sensor, ProSport’s gauge now has the widest range (10.0:1–20.0:1) of AFR readings on the planet. It features a blue LCD readout in the center of the gauge and bar-graph style LEDs around the outside of the gauge that change from green (rich) to yellow (optimal) to red (lean) for immediate reference to AFR.

Evo X Super Induction Box A
RC’s Super Induction Box is a full aluminum dual-filter replacement for your stock box. The intake has immaculate welds and fits to your stock MAF pipe. The ARC super induction box focuses on low, mid and high engine response. When stepping on the gas, in between the cleaner and the intake manifold, is unused air. ARC invented this induction box to utilize the unused air and give it better airflow and better response.

GT-R Super Racing Dampers
Developed from actual competition, TEIN was able to create a fully adjustable damper for the R35 GT-R that can be easily tuned for any track and weather conditions. Super Racing Dampers utilize a full-length adjustment system to allow shock length and spring preload to be adjusted independently. Separate 16-way adjustments for compression and rebound damping enable the user to fine-tune for any situation. External reservoirs allow for added oil capacity. Spring rates and shock valving were derived from many years of motorsports support, to provide the ultimate damper for competition.

What begins as an itch to lower your car's ride height, turns into a full-blown coilover installation. We should all be familiar with the thought process—because let's face it, wheel gap is just unattractive.
