No one can deny the outrageous power being produced by the Mitsubishi EVOs and the EVO X is no exception. Their ability to make power relates directly to cylinder pressure and how the compression is managed. Much of that responsibility rests solely [ … ]

Quaker State has formulated its motor oils to meet the toughest industry tests.  Quaker State Advanced Durability that provides 2x the wear protection of the standard industry test. Enhanced Durability, that provides protection to those vehicles that do a lot of stop and go driving or towing, such as the 4x4, SUV & Truck motor oil and Quaker State’s very best Ultimate Durability Q-Horsepower Full Synthetic.

It has to be said that the Quaker State of today is not your Grandpa’s motor oil. Even though, my Grandpa did use it, their modern formulas are so dramatically different that everything has changed except for the name. The company has launched and [ … ]

Prosport (yes, the gauge company) has branched out and built a cost-effective header for the WRX. With an MSRP of only $599 these headers are priced to move. So much so that Prosport increased the stock on hand for 2010 because several times in 2009 it was sold out between production runs. The mission in 2010 is to fill all of the orders with WRX owners looking to crank some more ponies out of their EJ20-powered WRX.

One of the more distinct exhaust notes today is that being belted out by the Subaru Impreza WRX. In stock form it is audible but with an aftermarket exhaust it is unmistakably the 2.0L boxer-4 rumbling away. Opening up the exhaust in these cars doe [ … ]

When boosting the performance of your car, one of the more overlooked sub-systems is cooling. Effective cooling is going to keep your intake temps down, lubrication more effective and make the engine run more efficiently. Upgrading the rad is on [ … ]

Progress Technology anti-roll bars dramatically improve handling by minimizing the traction-robbing body lean that deflects tires. By replacing the skinny OEM rear sway bar and rubber bushings on the Evo X with larger diameter (and stiffer) bar and polyurethane bushings, roll is reduced dramatically.

Proper chassis balance on your ride is one of the most important aspects to consider when thinking about when bringing your car to the track. Sure, your EVO X might be blessed with great capability from the factory, but there is still a supercar fi [ … ]

After countless hours of R&D, they have unleashed their top-mount turbo kit on the market with high acclaim. A scan of their website www.WeArePower.Net shows all of the details of the kit but the real magic happens on YouTube. Their first client is an AP1 owner known as IrishFlame27 has installed the kit and the results are impressive. With some weaksauce 91 octane Ken Peak tuned the AEM EMS to perfection on the stock engine.

Much like the Miata, the Honda S2000 has had an uphill battle to keep out of the “chick car” market segment. With two seats, a drop top and plenty of pretty colors, it is obvious why women were all over this car. The optional lipstick red interior [ … ]

The Optima RedTop is geared towards  high performance starting duties and is designed to deliver exceptional cranking power. The RedTop provides starting and power for vehicles with stock to moderate electrical loads. It works best when the discharge cycle is shallow and the alternator takes over after the battery fires up the vehicle, making it ideal for daily drivers, race or show vehicles with typical electrical requirements and an alternator.



Back when people were into cars in our parent’s day, the choices for batteries were very basic. There were a handful of lead acid cells on the market that were large, heavy and filled with corrosive liquid that could spill when tipped. Today, techn [ … ]
