BMW X6 Styling and Performance Package by AC Schnitzer

Jul 28, 2008No Comments1534 Views
German BMW tuner, AC Schnitzer, has just announced their styling and performance package for the BMW X6.  Schintzer’s first order of business was to address the aerodynamics and bodywork of BMW’s first Sports Activity Coupe. In the X6 by AC Schnitzer the front skirt with its diagonal air intakes and repositioned fog lights are exposed. The skid-plate protection has been removed in favor of a more dynamic contour of the spoiler edge. The rear carries a massive skirt with framed edges. In contrast to the original, all components are painted body-color throughout, so the body appears down stretched

Jul 24, 2008No Comments2093 Views
Ok, so you just dropped $230,000 on a new Ferrari Scuderia only to get it home and realize it only has 510 hp.  Heck, Ford’s Shelby GT500 will put out more than that with nothing more than a K&N air filter swap.  Well, help is on the way from Novitec Rosso, a leading Ferrari Tuner. Novitec introduces a sophisticated tuning program for the new Ferrari 430 Scuderia. At its heart is the Novitec Rosso Supersport Bi-Kompressor engine that bumps power output from stock 510 hp to 717 hp and increases top speed from 199 MPH to 217 MPH.

Jun 21, 2008No Comments7243 Views
  ProCharger is now offering their legendary intercooled supercharger system for the 2007-2008 “new generation” GM trucks. Producing 50-55% power gains on stock motors with 7-8psi of intercooled boost from the P-1SC-1 ProCharger, this system is sure to get you that extra power you’re looking for. GM truck and SUV ProCharger systems deliver the ultimate performance and power increase for towing, daily driving and sport truck applications.  In the lower rpm towing range, Intercooled ProCharger systems will deliver more rear-wheel torque because the intercooled charge air is extremely dense (virtually at ambient temperature), the engine is running

Jun 14, 2008No Comments1436 Views
Even since I met with STRUT at the 2007 SEMA show, I have been looking forward to their new line of carbon fiber components.  The first in this series is a beautiful one-of-a-kind appearance package for the Lamborghini Gallardo. STRUT, the originator of the “jewelry collections for your car” concept, has created an elegant Collection made from aerospace grade carbon-fiber and 316L stainless steel that gives owners the flexibility to further personalize their special automobile. Available for the 2004-2008 Gallardo, this Collection features eleven individual components: two primary grilles with carbon-fiber surrounds and stainless steel, diamond-woven mesh

Steeda Mustang Watts Link Suspension

S197 Mustang Watts Link Suspension Kit from Steeda

May 08, 2008No Comments2086 Views
Converting the standard panhard bar rear suspension to a watts link-type on S197 Mustangs has been a hot topic on forums recently. Saleen included a watts link suspension on its Parnelli Jones special edition Mustangs with much success. Fays2 has their own system that is also getting positive reviews. Now, the engineering masterminds over at Steeda Autosports are throwing their hat into the ring. A Watt’s Linkage replaces the Panhard Bar that was added when Ford re-designed the suspension and made the trailing arms parallel with the length of the chassis. When all of the trailing arms

FAST EZ-EFI Self-Tuning Fuel Injection Conversion

Easy Bolt-on Fuel-injection Conversion

Apr 07, 20082 Comments1994 Views
I have to admit, I am part of a fuel-injection generation. Although I have modified and restored many cars over the years, my personal ride during high school was a 1989 Mustang GT that I shared with my brother. As my unofficial “hot rod school,” we swapped out more parts on that Mustang than I can remember. I never even turned a wrench on a carburetor until years later while restoring a 1965 Mustang with a 289. Heck, I ended up converting that 289 to fuel-injection as well. Finding a simple fuel-injection conversion kit just 10 years
