LEGENDARY COOLING – PERFORMANCE RADIATOR R&D, PART 4 – Dyno Results

It’s been three months since our loaner Z06 last bellowed throughout the shop, but our ears are still ringing. The C6 is the very definition (more like DEAFinition) of the American sports coupe. Boisterous doesn’t even begin to describe our loaner Corvette. By now, though, we all know how hot these cars are, both figuratively and literally. We’re finally at the point where we can test and see just how much of that actual heat we can remove with our new aluminum radiator. 042318_NLT_C6_RAD_WEB_3

Before we could berate your senses with the full-frontal … Continue Reading ››

Piping Hot – Exhaust R&D, Part 6: Pure, Unadulterated, Awesomeness

The last piece of this puzzle has finally fallen into place. Finishing off our offerings for the 2016+ Chevy Camaro SS exhaust systems lands us here with our Race Axleback. The SS has an unmistakable sound, and it’s a sound we don’t want to stray far away from – we only want to enhance it in the most robust way possible, and I feel that the engineers have done just that. I’ll make this simple – this exhaust is mean. _MG_4196r It’s a mix of a modern sounding V8 with the raspy aggressive tone of … Continue Reading ››

The Rise to Power – Downpipe R&D, Part 2: A Working Prototype

Downpipes are a choke point in many turbocharged vehicles when it comes to exhaust flow. As opposed to naturally aspirated cars, less serious thought needs to go into the size of the exhaust piping. In most cases the system just needs to be bigger in diameter, maximizing what you can within the alotted design space. The downpipe on the Camaro 2.0T’s LTG engine is a restrictive point in the exhaust system, a conclusion brought about by our testing. The point of emphasis is the rate at which exhaust gases are expelled out of the turbocharger. That flow is very important to … Continue Reading ››

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

Now is your chance to get special pricing on the Camaro 2.0T intercooler, for more information visit our PreSale Page: Chevrolet Camaro 2.0T Performance Intercooler PreSale

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 effectively combat the effects of heat-soak while performing at maximum efficiency. First, we had to … Continue Reading ››

Piping Hot – Exhaust R&D, Part 5: Decimating Drone

Usually, the first noticeable change people make to any car is how it sounds. As summer starts to heat up, some of us gearheads are starting to take our unicorns, endless money-pits, kind-of-finished projects, or whatever you call your ride, out of storage, or the garage. It’s the season for nightly meets, hot track days and long cruises, giving you the perfect opportunity to showcase the changes you’ve made to your pride and joy since you put it away for the winter. Whether you replaced your catalytic converter with a high flow version, got a full, larger-diameter exhaust, or custom … Continue Reading ››
