DW releases industry’s first dual-stage fuel filter
Oklahoma City – DeatschWerks is announcing the release of their new high flow in-line fuel filters. DW has taken an innovative approach in their filter development to accommodate the corrosive nature of today’s modern fuels. The increasing popularity of ethanol-based fuels such as e10 and e85 has created well-documented challenges in fuel system maintenance. The new DW fuel filters feature an industry first dual-stage magneto-mechanical filter element.

The new C7 Corvette has one design flaw that can easily send it into limp mode with reduced power. Because the engine cooler and oil filter are located in close proximity to the driver side catalytic converter, the engine oil can overheat signaling the ECM to reduce power.
DEI now offers a new thermal control solution with the introduction of the C7 Catalytic Converter Heat Shield. Custom designed to prevent oil temperature from rising in the C7 by blocking heat transfer at the source, this shield is a quick, easy and cost effective solution to prevent a loss of power.
DEI’s new EXO Series™ Protect-A-Boot provides maximum spark plug boot and wire heat protection. Ideal for all grassroots and professional motorsports, including extreme sports, the EXO Series spark plug boot provides top-of-the-line protection for your spark plug wires against high direct or radiant heat.
The EXO Series boot features dual layer material construction of two layers of high temperature Silica glass fiber encased in a tough outer exoskeleton of 304 grade stainless steel mesh. The mesh prevents direct contact with the inner Silica lining and additionally provides an insulating air gap barrier. The dual layer construction and tough exterior provides a higher level of heat dissipation and abrasion resistance for high heat or abrasion prone environments such as off-road and desert racing.
DEI, in support of grassroots motorsports and local, regional and national project builds, offers both racers and builders the opportunity to become a member of TEAM DEI. Team DEI is open to racers of any series from drag to road racing, dirt or oval, to receive support in exchange for promotion of DEI on and off the track.
Each month, a racer or project builder will be selected to be featured through DEI’s website and social media as the featured vehicle of the month.
