Avon Lake, OH (March 15, 2017)…DEI, trusted thermal experts for the automotive aftermarket, now offers a new Black Titanium™ Exhaust Wrap in four available lengths.
Composed of pulverized lava rock extruded into woven fibers, this premium wrap with LR Technology is designed for maximum strength, durability and long-lasting use. Like the original Titanium Wrap, DEI’s Black Titanium Wrap maximizes horsepower and performance by reducing underhood temperatures and maintaining high exhaust gas velocity. Wrapped headers and exhaust also reduces the incidence of heat soak, can prevent harmful burns, protect heat-sensitive underhood components, and reduce the level of heat transmitted through the firewall and floor of the vehicle for a more comfortable interior.

Is Ceramic Coating Worth It?
For any car or boat owner, keeping a car's paint or boats fiberglass and gel coat pristine is always a challenge. The go-to solution has always been the tried and tested application of wax from day one of purchase. Periodic applications (sometimes frequent reapplication) of the same is needed to maintain the wax coat, as it is slowly removed via exposure to the elements.
Times are changing, however, and so has finishing and refinishing technology. Automotive paint nowadays is a bit different and boats have gel coat and painted surfaces. On cars, instead of piling layer upon layer of color pigment to produce a deep shine, a somewhat 'sacrificial' clear topcoat is now applied to give the paint luster. Wax, of course, is still the go-to, as is its frequent reapplication.
Introducing the innovative Ultra Mist Anti Bacteria fumigation system that is designed to eliminate up to 99% (as tested by TUV) of germs, bacteria and fungus lurking inside air conditioning systems of vehicles and properties. Most people take for granted the air we breathe thinking that is safe and clean when in actual fact there are literally millions of germs, bacteria and fungus growing inside the air conditioning system. Until now, it was an extreme tedious and expensive task to clean and remove the germs, bacteria and fungus from air conditioning system as it would take a lot of time and equipment to do so.

Plymouth, Mich. — The Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center announced today plans to unveil their newly engineered lightweight aftermarket frames at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nev., Oct. 31-Nov. 3. Show attendees will be the first to see models of the lightweight alternative for replacing frames on nearly any specialty vehicle. Although not yet in production, this forward-looking engineering could give specialty car owners access to an affordable, stiffer and safer car frame option in the future.
The Center, a representative of the MEP National Network, collaborated with Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow, The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation and the University of Tennessee, Center for Industrial Services Institute for Public Service to create the frame. Although multiple lightweight materials are integrated into the frame’s design, the engineering and design team was able to keep the cost comparable to current production steel frames.

Swing by the SEMA Swisstrax booth #21201 to see what his future holds, snap a photo, grab an autograph, ask him some questions and maybe get some answers. He will be hanging out Tuesday from 2:00 - 4:00 pm and Thursday from 10:00 am -12:00 pm, so why not meet him for yourself? If you feel up to it, ask about the newest flooring addition to his shop.

In the spring of 2016 DW released the DWR1000 adjustable fuel pressure regulator, combining the best aspects of existing regulators on the market and adding improvements in materials and design to culminate in the best all-around regulator on the market today. The DWR1000, which supports up to 1000 HP builds, has been a huge success and proven to be popular in multiple automotive segments, but there is one bit of feedback that could not be ignored. Consumers wanted it to support even more power. So the DWR2000 was born.
The DWR2000, just like the DWR1000, is designed from the ground up with e85 in mind and is constructed with 100% e85 compatible materials such as stainless steel, anodized aluminum, and nitrile, unlike many popular regulators on the market today that contain brass internals, which can corrode and weaken when used with e85.

Chicago, IL – Is one of your everyday activities putting your safety and the safety of others at risk? It is if you’re driving on worn-out or poor-quality brake fluid.

Prestone® produces premium brake fluids with a higher dry boiling point for increased vehicle safety. Prestone® DOT 3 High Temperature Synthetic Brake Fluid and Prestone® DOT 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid ensure optimal brake performance in extreme system conditions.
