Looking for a gift for that performance minded enthusiast in your life? We’ve put together a few items that are sure to please them! This is only a portion of our list, the rest of which will be put out later on this week.
Tired of heatsoak robbing you of precious power? You know the only way to be safe is to wrap it up. Get a DEI Header Wrap Kit and say goodbye to lost horsepower
The Blitz BOV with Dual Drive relieves compressor surge without reducing compressor speed. A smaller port is used for low boost and a larger port is used for high boost. Get one of these to ensure no compressor surge.
The HKS SSQV is a dual stage pull type relief valve, meaning that unlike push type valves, the SSQV cannot leak under any level of boost. The SSQV uses a small primary valve for quick action and a large valve for further venting. I personally use one on my vehicle, and I suggest it! Plus, it’s special edition, and black. That’s baller!
The TiAL Q is the first redesign in 9 years for their BOV. Due to a V-band weld flange, the TiAL Q has a very clean and unique appearance. It is the highest flowing BOV on the market and is great for low to high boost applications.
Hawk has always been synonymous with braking performance. With their unique Ferro-Carbon compound, Hawk’s Street series brake pads combine performance with extended pad life. Aftermarket pads are inexpensive and are a must for any modified car.
Excessive heat can cause resins in your brake pads to vaporize. As brake pads wear, the used material turns into a fine dust which can inhibit braking power. Forget all that and invest in some Powerslot Slotted Brake Rotors. Powerslots exclusive Vac-U-Slots are machined to evacuate all that harmful gas and dirt for enhanced stopping power.
Why should I get stainless steel brake lines? That’s a question I hear all the time. Stainless Steel lines don’t swell like rubber lines, so they firm up your brake pressure. If you do off-road driving, stainless lines can also protect your lines from being punctured as well. Plus…they look awesome.
