Getting Into The Thick of It – Intercooler R&D, Part 3: Running Numbers

Our engineering department sought to bombard our intercooler with dyno runs, gathering as much data as possible to ensure that it could stand up to the abuse and intensity you plan to put it through. Due to the fact that this intercooler is sandwiched between the radiator and air conditioning condenser, we had to be sure that our core could … Continue Reading ››

Got Trucks, Got Jeeps (VOL. 2) – Catch Can R&D Part 1: The 3.6L Stock System

Blow-By Verified – Oil Catch Can R&D, Part 1: That’s…A Lot of Oil

During combustion, the top side of the piston forces combusted gasses, with remnants of fuel and oil past the piston rings, and into the crankcase. This would force the crankcase to become pressurized without some … Continue Reading ››

In the preliminary hours of a drift event, burnt rubber, race fuel, and the chatter among drivers, are all sights, sounds, and smells familiar to a seasoned grassroots drifter. Pair that with the sound of wrenching through their last-minute prep on their low, loud, and heavily-stickered Japanese rides with mountainous terrain and cramped paddocks, you’d think you were at a … Continue Reading ››
