Dealer Upgrades vs Shop Upgrades

Dealer Upgrades vs Shop Upgrades

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?

Melted Cats from a Bad Tune and Bad Gas

Melted Cats from a Bad Tune and Bad Gas

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?

Here Comes the Stampede...

Here Comes the Stampede...

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!

Comparison: Corsa, Borla, Magnaflow, and Flowmaster

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. 

Superchargers vs Turbos: The Ultimate Forced Induction Debate

Superchargers vs Turbos: The Ultimate Forced Induction Debate

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.
