Racing & Performance
AP Racing is proud to introduce the Pro 5000R line of brake calipers. Drawing heavily on our championship-winning Radi-CAL™ design philosophy, these highly optimized, forged calipers offer considerably lower weight and improved cooling vs. conventional designs, while improving dynamic structural rigidity.
The first AP Racing Radi-CAL™ caliper was introduced in 2007, and immediately took the professional racing world by storm. AP Racing has now produced over 80 different Radi-CAL™ variants, winning races and championships in all major motorsport classes around the globe.
With the Pro 5000R range, AP Racing brings this previously unobtainable technology to the club racer and weekend enthusiast. Despite its unmatched feature set, pricing will be similar to the outgoing Pro 5000 range.
Woodland Park, Colorado –Snow Performance now offers braided stainless hose for its Boost Cooler® water/methanol injection systems. The hose is a synthetic methanol-proof EPDM hose that is braided with stainless steel and withstands up to 1250 psi. The hoses are pre-cut for each application making for easy installation that also enhances the engine compartment. "Braided tubing is the standard for fluid systems in high performance applications," says Matt Snow, President Snow Performance. "In recognition of this, we have produced this hose upgrade in custom lengths for all Boost Cooler® systems."
Snow Performance Boost Cooler® systems with the braided hose upgrade, are available for all gasoline and diesel applications. Boost Cooler® water/methanol systems increase air density in the combustion chamber, allowing more timing and boost in gasoline engines for more power. In diesels, more power, fuel economy, with lower exhaust gas temps are the result.

Auburn Gear First to Offer Aftermarket Alternative for Post-2010 Chrysler 9-1/4 ZF Limited-Slip Differential
Auburn’s new 9-1/4 limited-slip differential broadens consumer choice and delivers superior strength and performance for about 25 percent less than OE diff.
AUBURN, Ind. — Auburn Gear, Inc., a leading U.S.-based manufacturer of high-performance differentials, introduced its new aftermarket, limited-slip differential replacement for vehicles with the Chrysler 9-1/4 ZF rear axle built after 2010. Auburn’s new aftermarket 9-1/4 differential is the first to market and is designed for easy installation and higher performance than the original equipment.
Until now, those wanting a limited-slip differential on certain Dodge, Jeep and RAM vehicles made after 2010 had to either specify it as an option in place of the standard Chrysler 9-1/4 ZF open differential or pay to have an OE 9-1/4 ZF limited-slip retrofit performed. Cost was often a barrier, and the OE-made posi-track was the only aftermarket option available.
August 27, 2014- Silent Running (www.sr-car.com) teams up with BareSpeed and Good Mark to bring a new concept to the feature vehicles display. Unlike other display vehicles at SEMA, this 67 Mustang build will feature no interior accessories in order to showcase the benefits of using Silent Running.
Clarence Chan, owner of Bare Speed says, “I saw this car and thought, this is going to be amazing! Everyone else saw this car and just laughed at me. Most people said it needs to be scrapped. I then spoke to Silent Running and told them about the project. They loved the idea, they had not seen the car though. After they saw the first pictures, they were speechless, “Are you sure we can do this by SEMA?” The next call was to Goodmark- I spoke to them about the car and they loved the idea. They knew exactly what I was talking about and agreed it was a great idea.”
MagnaFlow knows performance, and so does the team at APR Performance. So, when it came time to pick a partner for building a 2014 Corvette Stingray to be featured in the MagnaFlow booth, APR’s track and race proven success with the C6 Z06 ZR1 line made them a solid choice for partnership. Watching their process of development for an all-new line of components, designed specifically for the C7 platform reinforced that decision.
“We chose to work with MagnaFlow because they are a top vehicle exhaust system manufacturer. Their exhaust has provided the greatest performance and the right sound we needed for this Corvette Stingray project." – APR Performance Marketing Manager, KC Chou
After the unveiling of the partnership between MagnaFlow and Arlen Ness Motorcycles at the SEMA Show last year, MagnaFlow has raised the bar with two new custom bikes for 2014 from Arlen and Zach Ness.
Inside the show, MagnaFlow is featuring a new custom Bagger from Arlen Ness. Built on a Harley-Davidson® Touring platform, the new Ness custom Bagger is loaded with Arlen Ness part and accessories and an amazing head tuning paint job for that one of a kind look. It’s ready to hit the open road or a world class custom bike show. For the performance edge, Arlen chose the new Redline Tru-Dual system. Redline Tru-Duals offers Ness style with proven MagnaFlow performance and craftsmanship. The Redline mufflers are finished off with distinctive gloss black accent cut end caps to stand out for the crowd. That famous MagnaFlow sound quality can be heard mile after mile with the Redline Tru-Dual exhaust system.
The game has certainly changed for those of us who like to tinker with our cars and especially for anyone who has decided to make a career of it. The invasion of computer technology into the automotive world has been a blessing and a curse. Join MagnaFlow for a class designed to solve some of the problems incurred when modifying an exhaust. We’ll cover Air Flow, Scavenging, Back Pressure, O2 Diagnostics, Converter Efficiency, Tuning and MORE!
