The Mishimoto 335i Baffled Catch Can

The Mishimoto BMW N54 Baffled Oil Catch Can is designed and engineered to reduce carbon buildup, a common issue with the direct fuel injection N54 engines. The Mishimoto BMW N54 catch can kit uses the proven engineering from the Mishimoto 2-Port Compact Baffled Oil Catch Can with a bronze filter, and internal baffled to better separate the oil from the crankcase vapors. The engineers at Mishimoto designed a CNC-machined lid which features large inlet/outlets in order to match the inner dimension of the CCV hose. This baffled oil catch can will defend your intercooler, intake system, and VANOS system from oil blow-by and help maintain proper octane levels to reduce potential detonation. The kit comes with two direct-fit hoses, which require no modification to the engine cover, and one direct fit mounting bracket that not only is extremely easy to install but also mounts the can in a serviceable location! Two plastic, 3/4” barb fittings connect the hoses to the can.

JRi Shocks Announces Hydraulic Ride Height System Giveaway Winner

Mooresville North Carolina December 17, 2014 JRi Shocks is excited to announce the winner of our SEMA sweepstakes, Ride Height system giveaway. Attendees at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas Nevada had the opportunity to enter a drawing at the JRi Shocks booth for a complete Hydraulic Ride Height system. William Hodge of Houston Texas was the lucky winner who couldn’t believe it when notified by JRi staff following the show.

“I almost deleted the email as spam,” said Hodge “I had no expectations of actually winning the contest and have been thinking about it since!”

Hodge is nearing completion of a ’69 Camaro project that has been underway since 2010. The car was a gift from his parents back in 1997 and has been a part of his life for over 17 years. As luck would have it, the Camaro is equipped with Detroit Speed suspension and JRi's baseline shock package so the JRi Ride Height system makes for an easy addition and a welcome upgrade.

ZAFCO Unveils Winter Tires and more at SEMA Show 2014 – U.S.A

November 13, 2014

Las Vegas, NV – Drivers looking for better traction and mileage can find this news interesting, as ZAFCO exhibited a number of tire brands at Las Vegas Convention Center from November 4th to 7th, 2014. Being an active participant, ZAFCO unveiled a wide range of categories of its very own brand – ZEETEX –including PCR, TBR, Winter, and SUV / 4x4, claiming to offer the best traction and mileage, while favoring the environment as well.
For UHP category, ACCELERA tires seemed to grab the attention of dealers and distributors, as the number of drivers seeking ultra-high performance is pretty sound in the U.S. However, on the other hand, ARMSTRONG and FORCEUM focused on a single category each where they showcased their TBR and PCR categories, respectively.

Typical Applications

BSTFLEX V Titanium Exhaust Wrap

BSTFLEX provide special V Titanium Exhaust Wrap, same material as other titanium exhaust wrap.

Titanium Exhaust Wrap is extremely durable and capable of handling more heat than any other exhaust wrap found in the market today.

Typical glass fiber exhaust wrap is rated at handling 1200 degrees F of maximum direct heat, while V Titanium Exhaust Wrap is capable of handling direct continuous heat up to 1800 degrees F and radiant heat up to 2800 degrees F.

This V Titanium Exhaust Wrap is constructed from pulverized lava rock, extruded into fibers and then woven into a tight weave gives this material titanium-like strength and toughness. This improvement in thermal protection helps reduce underhood temperatures resulting in cooler air intake for improved performance. And less heat in the engine bay means reducing the chances of “heat soak” conditions on vital underhood components.

BSTFLEX turbo blanket heat shield

The turbo blanket isolates the heat produced by your turbocharger, and prevents that heat from damaging, or even igniting, components surrounding the turbocharger within your engine compartment, such as plastic and rubber hoses and electrical wiring, as well as painted surfaces, such as the engine bay and the surface of the hood. Also, it prevents areas of localized high temperature from damaging the engine itself.
