“Covers for Causes” by Covercraft Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

Covercraft enters its second year supporting their Covers for Causes program which contributes a percentage of profit from the product sales to breast cancer research programs.

Marty Lichtmann, President of Covercraft, noted sales are growing and the company vowed their continuing support saying, “Almost everyone I know has been touched by cancer, or knows of someone who has had to battle this horrific disease. Research has made great strides, but needs much more support in the effort to find a cure.”

It goes without saying that women have a tremendous impact on the automotive industry, purchasing over half of the new cars sold in the U.S. and influencing 80 percent of all family car-buying decisions (forbes.com).

Women also play key roles within our automotive industry, with positions in management, design, sales and the aftermarket, along with ownership of repair and parts facilities and dealerships.

Covercraft now offers Fleeced Satin fabric, their newest addition for indoor storage vehicle protection.

Fleeced Satin features a woven polyester outer shell with a super soft white nylon fleece finish inside to provide a gentle touch to fine car finishes.

Fleeced Satin fabric has a slight stretch for a more contoured fir (but not the body-hugging stretch of their Form-Fit® covers).

An excellent value for indoor use (and limited outdoor use – like a weekend car show), Fleeced Satin is offered in three colors – Black, Red and Gray

Covercraft currently has over 80,000 custom patterns in their library, and covers can also be made for one-of-a-kind custom built vehicles using Covercraft’s dimension sheet which specifies all the required measurements.

CORSA Performance Enters Subaru Exhaust Market

BEREA, Ohio – Well-known for their loyalty to all things Subaru, Subaru enthusiasts can now love their vehicles a little more by enjoying the benefits of an exhaust system acoustically tuned to match the performance of the Subaru Boxer® engine.

These systems are available in multiple tip configurations with either dual 3.5” or single 4.5” tips.

CORSA’s patented Reflective Sound Cancellation® (RSC ®) technology allows the exhaust system to dial out the low frequencies that cause drone, resulting in cleaner sound and greater performance, which was flow bench-tested at a 64 percent gain in exhaust flow versus a stock system, according to the company.

Stick on Horsepower!

Stick on horsepower! I-M Shield™ can increase horsepower (up to 12 RWHP!). It works by shielding the intake manifold and reducing the heat radiating up from the top motor. This lowers intake manifold temperatures creating a more dense fuel and air mixture, creating more power. Think of it as an intercooler for your intake, same physics and chemistry just a different way to get there. Heavy duty adhesive will stick to any clean semi-smooth surface. Simply degrease, then clean surface, then wipe with pre-paint cleaner or isopropyl alcohol, let dry, then firmly press the I-M Shield™ onto the underside of the intake manifold. Use provided edging tape to finish the install. I-M Shield™ comes pre-cut for stock and aftermarket applications but may be trimmed with heavy scissors or utility knife! That’s it, literally stick on horsepower, get your I-M Shield and add some Instant-Muscle today.
