You're invited to the Grand Opening of our brand new facility in Sealy, TX! The new shop is just 15 minutes west of our current location in Katy. Bring your family and friends because there will be live music along with food from Bayou City Eats and Cupcake and a Smile, LLC. You'll even get a chance to have your photo taken in a real racecar courtesy of Forever Snapped Photo Booth Rentals! Also, the shop will be opened up so that you can walk through and see first-hand where the Bad Fast rides are made!
Nowadays there’s lots of dealerships offering aftermarket upgrades to new vehicles such as wheels, tires, lift kits, exhaust, etc. When you buy a vehicle with these add-ons from the dealer, the cost of the upgrades is usually bundled in with your purchase price and financing. Is that a good or a bad thing?
We always preach about using good fuel and having a good tune in your performance car, especially your daily driven hot rod. We had a great example this week about why this is so important! The last time you went cheap on the gas for a few tanks and you think it didn’t hurt anything - did you look at your cats?
After some bad luck, the Stampede Mustang came to us in need of a fresh start. We ended up rewiring most of the car, installing a new airbag system, doing some cosmetic and interior changes, and getting the car running so that the owner could enjoy it. After a lot of blood and sweat, the Stampede is back where it belongs!
When you search the internet for different exhaust you’ll typically find the same 5 brands mentioned: Corsa, Borla, Magnaflow, and Flowmaster. They all bring something different to the table whether its a different sound or a more efficient flow. The main result you can expect from aftermarket exhaust is sound. However, some will also yield a gain in horsepower (5-10%) although it’s not usually enough of an increase that you’d be able to feel.
When it comes to serious power-adders there's two main contenders: twin turbos and superchargers. While the two are very different there are some similarities. The main similarity between twin turbos and a supercharger is that they both force air into the motor in order to create more power. To put it simply, the more air forced into your motor, the more power it will make.
