More Horsepower and No Bumper Removal - Mishimoto's BRZ/FR-S Air Intake!

Add easy horsepower to your 2013+ BRZ/FR-S with the Mishimoto Subaru BRZ / Scion FR-S Performance Air Intake! We understand that removing the front bumper of your new BRZ/FR-S is not ideal, so our engineers designed this Performance Air Intake to develop a 7 whp / 5 wtq bolt-on power increase with no bumper removal required. In addition to the impressive power increase, our engineering team ensured that safe A/F ratios are maintained throughout the entire powerband. This intake uses a silicone induction hose and aluminum intake pipe that provides a smooth path for airflow. Additionally, the CNC-machined mass airflow (MAF) housing and air straightener ensure laminar airflow across the sensor to provide accurate readings.

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.

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.

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.
