Roush Yates by JMS BoostMAX® Boost Your Vehicle
Mooresville, NC – June 2, 2015 – Roush Yates and JMS have partnered to offer a brand new product line: “Roush Yates by JMS BoostMAX®” for FORD EcoBoost vehicles. It’s the newest product by Roush Yates as the historic company expands into the street performance market.
The digital microprocessor controlled device has been engineered to work specifically with the FORD EcoBoost range of engines (3.5L, 2.7L, 2.3L, 2.0L and 1.6L). The Plug & Play digital product is designed to work in sync with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) sensors that control fuel, spark and timing within the factory powertrain control system. This technology provides a significant improvement in overall performance with a considerable increase in horsepower and torque.
AEM Induction Systems with AEM Electronics built a 2015 Mustang to illustrate its tuner heritage with the new 2.3L Ford EcoBoost Turbo motor. AEM started by creating a Cold Air Intake system for the inline 4 cylinder 2.3L motor that showed an estimated 12 hp gain at 4,500 RPM. The AEM Intake features a couple of unique features with a purpose built mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube and a unique oval Dryflow® clamp-on air filter. AEM Induction Systems further improved performance with a mandrel-bent and powder coated aluminum charge pipe for improved airflow to and from the turbo. After the AEM Induction Systems upgrades, AEM Electronics took the build to another level.

Lake Zurich, IL – New steel alignment tools from Quarter Master® are manufactured to provide dependable clutch-disc alignment, especially in multiple-disc clutch units.
Lake Zurich, IL – This new bellhousing kit from Quarter Master® gives the racer the edge by creating additional ground clearance.
The LGC (Low Ground Clearance) Bellhousing Kit maximizes downforce and lowers the center of gravity by allowing the nose of the car to be as low to the track as possible. The additional ground clearance is achieved through a smaller ring gear and a flat-bottom bellhousing that makes it flush with the bottom of the tightest-fitting dry-sump oil pans. The bellhousing also features both internal and external strengthening ribs to maximize strength and stiffness while reducing parasitic drag. The kit is designed for circle track or road racers using 5.5" clutches and a rear-mount starter. It can be used as a retro-fit option or an entirely new package. Quarter Master® LGC Bellhousing Kits featuring either magnesium or aluminum bellhousings are coming soon for all popular applications.
