AEM Inductions and AEM Electronics 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost Product Launch

For the first time in nearly thirty years, Ford is offering a turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine in the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost. Contrary to most auto makers’ engine line ups, due to an increase in horsepower, torque, and fuel economy, the Ford 2.3L EcoBoost four cylinder engine is an upgrade over the standard 300 horsepower V6. Ford engineers managed to squeeze an impressive 310 horsepower and 320 lb-ft from the 2.3L EcoBoost engine while also earning an EPA estimated 31 highway MPG for the 2015 Ford Mustang. Despite the already impressive power numbers of the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost, owners searching for an extra boost in horsepower, torque, and acceleration can easily do so with the installation of an AEM air intake system with estimated gains of +12 hp and +17ft. lbs. torque.

Aluminum Hygiene: A Sensible Approach to Managing Aluminum Complications

Aluminum Hygiene:
A Sensible Approach to Managing Aluminum Complications

By Shawn Collins, Senior Technical Service Engineer, 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division

Aluminum repairs in general are currently a hot topic and the subject of cross contamination between steel and aluminum is one of the first issues raised, and for good reason. The approach to controlling cross contamination is multi-faceted and requires a systemic plan.
First and foremost, it will be essential to separate the aluminum operations from the steel operations as much as possible. I say as much as possible because no matter how much effort you put into substrate separation, you will never be able to completely segregate these two processes. Many vehicles that have aluminum components also have steel components and vise versa, so complete separation is often impossible.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (November 3, 2015) – In the collision repair industry, heavy duty metalworking can take its toll on tools, abrasive products and especially the collision repair professionals who use them. Key steps of the disassembly process such as weld removal, grinding, panel cutting/sectioning and paint removal quickly wear down traditional abrasive discs and file belts, causing technicians to have to repeatedly stop their work and replace them. The limited cut rate and life of some abrasives mean technicians have to exert more effort and use more product to achieve the desired results.
