(PAT)>> WELCOME TO ENGINE POWER. TODAY WE'RE STARTING OFF THE SHOW IN BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY, AT THE NATIONAL CORVETTE MUSEUM ROAD COURSE, OR NCM FOR SHORT.

(MIKE)>> NOW THIS IS A 200 ACRE FACILITY THAT HAS A THREE POINT ONEFIVE MILE ROAD COURSE IN FULL CONFIGURATION, AND CAN BE ARRANGED TO RUN FOUR DIFFERENT COURSES. THIS FACILITY ALSO HOUSES A 22 ACRE AUTO CROSS AND SKID PAD AREA. ADDITIONAL FEATURES INCLUDE THE HOLLEY CONTROL TOWER WITH MEETING ROOMS AND CLASSROOMS. PLUS A FULL GARAGE AREA, TECH INSPECTION STATION, AND FUEL STATION. NCM WAS DESIGNED AND BUILT WITH CHALLENGING FEATURES THAT

SHADOWED THE FAMOUS LE SARTHE IN LE MANS, FRANCE. NOW THIS IS THE DESTINATION AND FACILITY THAT ANYONE NEEDS TO VISIT WHO HAS THE ITCH TO GO FAST AND CARVE CORNERS. NOW AT THIS POINT YOU ALL HAVE TO BE ASKING, WELL WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING THERE? WELL IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE. WE BROUGHT A CAR BUT IT'S NOT EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE USED TO SEEING IN OUR SHOP.

(PAT)>> WHAT WE HAVE IN THE OLE RACE CAR HAULER IS A VERY POPULAR PLATFORM. NOW IT'S SO POPULAR THAT BIG COMPANIES HAVE TAKEN NOTICE, SUCH AS EDELBROCK AND HOLLEY, AND ARE PRODUCING PARTS FOR IT THAT ARE REALLY COOL, NOT TO MENTION SOME OF THESE SMALLER PARTS PRODUCERS WHO ARE MAKING THESE CARS HANDLE, PERFORM, AND EVEN LOOK BETTER EVERYDAY. MEET THE CAR WITH THREE DIFFERENT BRANDINGS AND ONE COOL PLATFORM. IT CAN BE PURCHASED AS A SUBARU BRZ, A SCION FRS, OR A TOYOTA 86.

IT'S A REAR WHEEL DRIVE SPORTS CAR WITH A SIX SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION. [ engine starting ]

(PAT)>> AND A 200 HORSEPOWER FLAT FOUR CYLINDER POWER PLANT.

IT WEIGHS IN AT JUST OVER 2,700 POUNDS. WITH THOSE SPECS WE HAD TO PLAY WITH IT AND TO SEE WHAT

THE HYPE IS ALL ABOUT. OOH, POP MUSIC! PRIORITY ONE, TUNES. NOW THE PERFORMANCE. THE 2,600 POUND CAR WITH 200 HORSE, THAT'S IMPRESSIVE.

ON THE FLOOR RIGHT THERE, THAT'S ON THE FLOOR.

(MIKE)>> I MEAN THIS IS AWESOME.

(PAT)>> 100, I DID IT!

(MIKE)>> NICE!

SO COOL! [ tires screeching ]

(PAT)>> THIS CAR STICKS SO WELL. [ tires screeching ]

(MIKE)>> THAT'S AWESOME, AWESOME!

(PAT)>> YOUR TURN.

(MIKE)>> MY TURN INDEED. WE HAVE BIG PLANS FOR THIS CAR. SO WE'RE DOING A BASELINE TIME TRIAL ON THE TOUGHEST PART OF THE TRACK, BUT FIRST I NEED TO FIND ITS LIMITS, INCLUDING THE SUSPENSION, AND WHAT'S LEFT OF THESE TIRES.

[ tires screeching ]

(MIKE)>> AND THAT'S HOW YOU FIND IT, ESPECIALLY ON STOCK TIRES. AFTER A FEW MORE PRACTICE LAPS I'M READY. NOW WE'LL TAKE THE BEST TIME OF THREE LAPS.

(PAT)>> I CAN HEAR HIM WORKING IT RIGHT NOW. HE'S COMING AROUND.

(MIKE)>> PAT HITS THE TIMER AT FULL SPEED. I'LL BRING IT AROUND AS FAST AS POSSIBLE WITHOUT LOSING EXCESSIVE TRACTION. THE LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY KEEPS IT PLANTED, AND WITH THE BROAD POWER BAND FROM THE BOXER ENGINE, TIGHT SHIFTS, AND SOLID BRAKES, THE BEST LAP IS A RESPECTABLE 1:03:58.

NO WONDER THE HYPE IS SO POSITIVE. WHAT A GREAT PLATFORM TO START WITH, AND WE'LL DO THAT AFTER I RUN OUT OF GAS.

(MIKE)>> WE'RE BACK AT THE SHOP WITH OUR STOUT LITTLE PERFORMER. NOW THIS SCION FRS REALLY SURPRISED US IN ALL

DEPARTMENTS OUT ON THE ROAD COURSE.

NOW IT'S TIME TO START THE TRANSFORMATION. WE'RE GOING TO ADD SOME SERIOUS POWER AND SOUND, AND THAT COMES IN THE FORM OF BOOST AND AN AWESOME EXHAUST SETUP, AND THEY'RE BOTH FROM COMPANIES THAT YOU'RE WELL

AWARE OF, BUT FIRST WE NEED TO GET A BASELINE BACK ON THE CHASSIS DYNO.

(PAT)>> LIKE WE MENTIONED EARLIER, THIS ENGINE IS RATED AT 200 HORSEPOWER. THE TRANSMISSION IS A MANUAL, AND FIFTH GEAR IS ONE TO ONE. GO AHEAD AND GUESS WHAT YOU THINK IT WILL MAKE AT THE TIRES. PEAK POWER IS AT 7,000 RPM, AND WE'LL TURN IT TO THE REV LIMITER, AND HERE'S THE BEST OF TWO RUNS THAT WE MADE. 171 HORSE, 143 POUND FEET OF TORQUE.

(MIKE)>> NOT BAD, 200 RATING AT THE FLYWHEEL. SO IT LOST 29 HORSE. THAT'S RESPECTABLE!

(PAT)>> THAT'S PRETTY GOOD BUT I THINK WE CAN IMPROVE ON THAT.

(MIKE)>> ABSOLUTELY, AND WE'LL DO THAT BY INCREASING THE OUTPUT OF THIS POWER PLANT, DUBBED THE FA 20. NOW THIS IS A VERY IMPRESSIVE ENGINE FOR ITS SIZE.

IT'S AN ALL ALUMINUM, VERY COMPACT BOXER ENGINE THAT HAS DIRECT INJECTION AND HIGH COMPRESSION. IT PRODUCES 100 HORSEPOWER PER LITER AT THE CRANK. NOW IF YOU'VE NEVER SEEN HOW A BOX ENGINE FUNCTIONS HERE'S AN AWESOME LOOK. THE INTAKE SYSTEM IS A LIGHT WEIGHT COMPOSITE DESIGN WITH EXTRA LONG RUNNERS FOR A BROAD POWER BAND. THE ACCESSORY DRIVE IS SLIM LINE AND VERY COMPACT. THIS IS WHERE YOU GET THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE FLAT FOUR ENGINE DESIGN. THE FRONT COVER SPANS THE WIDTH OF THE ENGINE, AND WITH IT OUT OF THE WAY THE HORIZONTAL OPPOSING CYLINDER

DESIGN IS VISIBLE, ALLOWING FOR A WELL BALANCED AND EFFICIENT ENGINE PACKAGE. THE PISTONS ARE 180 DEGREES APART, MAKING THE ENGINE INHERENTLY LOW IN VIBRATION.

THE CYLINDER HEAD DESIGN INCORPORATES FOUR VALVES PER CYLINDER, ACTUATED BY DUAL OVERHEAD CAMS. NOW THIS ENGINE DESIGN INCREASES VALVE AREA ON

SMALLER BORES, INCREASING THE AMOUNT OF AIR FUEL MIXTURE ENTERING THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER, IMPROVING THE POWER AND EFFICIENCY. THE ENGINE DESIGN GIVES THE VEHICLE A LOWER CENTER OF GRAVITY AND BETTER BALANCE FOR A PERFORMANCE PLATFORM.

(PAT)>> MAJOR MANUFACTURERS ARE SUPPORTING THIS PLATFORM BECAUSE QUITE FRANKLY IT'S WELL DESERVING OF IT, AND EDELBROCK HAS JUMPED ON BOARD BY DESIGNING AN EFORCE SUPERCHARGER SYSTEM THAT'S A DIRECT BOLT ON FOR THE FRS AND BRZ. NOW EDELBROCK CLAIMS IT WILL MAKE 242 HORSEPOWER AND 186 POUND FEET OF TORQUE AT THE TIRES WITH THEIR 50 STATE LEGAL TUNE UP. NOW THAT'S AROUND A 40 PERCENT GAIN IN POWER, WHICH IS PRETTY GOOD FOR A LITTLE TWO LITER ENGINE. THIS EFORCE BLOWER IS BASED ON THE EATON TVS 13-20 SUPERCHARGER. TVS REFERS TO THE DESIGN OF THE TWIN FOUR LOBE ROTORS, AND THAT STANDS FOR "TWIN VORTICES SERIES". THE LOBES HAVE 160 DEGREE TWIST, WHICH

INTERLOCK AS THEY ROTATE. THAT DRAWS IN, TRAPS, COMPRESSES, AND FORCES THE INCOMING AIR INTO THE ENGINE. THIS KIT ALSO CONTAINS A HEAT EXCHANGER, AIR BOX ASSEMBLY,

INTERCOOLER PUMP, PLUS ALL OF THE HARDWARE, HOSES, EVEN A TUNER. EVERYTHING NEEDED FOR A COMPLETE ASSEMBLY. NOW WE ARE PUMPED TO SEE HOW THIS CAR FEELS WITH ALL THAT ADDITIONAL POWER. SO NOW IT'S TIME TO START GETTING THIS STUFF INSTALLED.

(MIKE)>> WITH THE CAR ON THE LIFT, THE FIRST THING TO COME OFF IS THE SPLASH GUARD. NOW THE FASCIA SUPPORT IS REMOVED, AND THE ENTIRE FASCIA CAN NOW BE CAREFULLY PULLED FORWARD AND CARRIED OFF. DRAINING THE RADIATOR IS THE NEXT STEP. NOW THE AIR INLET TUBE CAN BE REMOVED, AND THE NOISE GENERATOR ASSEMBLY IS UNBOLTED. REMOVE THE MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR AND PUT IT IN A SAFE PLACE.

NOW THE UPPER AIR BOX ASSEMBLY IS PULLED OUT, ALONG WITH THE LOWER AIR BOX ASSEMBLY AND RADIATOR SHROUD.

(PAT)>> AFTER REMOVING A FEW CONNECTIONS AND HOSES, WE MADE IT EASY TO REMOVE THE ECU AND IT'S MOUNTING PLATE. THE FUEL CROSSOVER LINE IS DISCONNECTED, AND THE PASSENGER SIDE RAIL AND INJECTORS ARE PULLED OUT, AS WELL AS THE DRIVER'S SIDE RAIL AND INJECTORS. NOW UNBOLT THE THROTTLE BODY AND MOVE IT TOWARDS THE FRONT OF THE ENGINE.

(MIKE)>> TO CLEAR THE MANIFOLD ASSEMBLY THIS HYDRAULIC CLUTCH LINE NEEDS TO BE ROTATED TO THE PASSENGER SIDE. NEW BANJO WASHERS ARE INCLUDED IN THE KIT. WE'RE MAKING GOOD PROGRESS SO FAR ON OUR FRS. NOW EDELBROCK MAKES THIS INSTALL A BREEZE WITH DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS AND A WELL ENGINEERED KIT. WHEN WE COME BACK FROM THE BREAK THE WORK CONTINUES.

(PAT)>> WE'RE BACK AND OVER THE BREAK WE PROGRESSED SOME OF THE STEPS ON THIS DEAL THAT AREN'T EXACTLY GLAMOUROUS OR EXCITING BUT NECESSARY FOR THE BUILD, WHICH INCLUDED INSTALLING A FEW LINES AND HOSES, BUT THE NEXT FEW STEPS ARE GONNA BE DEDICATED TO PUTTING ON SOME WIRING. THIS RELAY MOUNTS TO THE FENDER AND IT'S FOR THE SUPERCHARGER'S WATER PUMP. THE 12 VOLT CONSTANT TERMINAL GOES TO THE POSITIVE STUD ON THE BATTERY TERMINAL. NOW THE EVAP CONNECTOR CAN CONNECT TO THE FACTORY HARNESS, AND THE OTHER ONE TO THE EVAP SOLENOID HARNESS. A SUPPLIED FEAD BRACKET CAN BE POSITIONED ON THE FACTORY ALTERNATOR BRACKET AND TIGHTENED DOWN. NOW THE LOW TEMPERATURE RADIATOR, OR AS WE ALL KNOW IT, THE HEAT EXCHANGER, CAN BE POSITIONED IN FRONT OF THE A/C CONDENSER AND SECURED WITH THE CONDENSER'S FACTORY HARDWARE.

(MIKE)>> NOW ALL THE PREP WORK IS DONE AND IT'S TIME FOR THE MAIN EVENT. NOW THIS SUPERCHARGER WILL PRODUCE 10 POUNDS OF BOOST

WITH THE SUPPLIED PULLEY ON OUR FRS' TWO POINT ZERO

LITER FLAT FOUR ENGINE. IT'S EQUIPPED WITH AN INTEGRATED BYPASS VALVE FOR A MINIMAL DECREASE IN FUEL ECONOMY AND HAS A SELF CONTAINED OILING SYSTEM WITH A 100,000 MILE SERVICE INTERVAL. WITH THE HIGH PROFILE DUE TO THE LONG RUNNER DESIGN, IT FITS IN PLACE PRETTY EASY. NOW A COUPLE OF HARNESSES HAD TO BE MASSAGED BUT THAT'S IT.

(PAT)>> THERE YOU GO.

(MIKE)>> HERE'S A DIAGRAM OF THE HEAT EXCHANGER, HOSES, AND PUMP. THE FIRST HOSE IS RAN FROM THE INTERCOOLER TO THE HEAT EXCHANGER. THEN ANOTHER FROM THE INTERCOOLER TO THIS EXPANSION TANK.

THEN TO THE PUMP, AND THE FINAL LINE IS RAN FROM IT TO THE HEAT EXCHANGER.

NOW THE SUPERCHARGER IS TORQUED TO THE CYLINDER HEADS.

(PAT)>> THE STOCK INJECTORS AND FUEL RAILS ARE REUSED AND GO BACK ON AT THIS TIME, FOLLOWED BY THE ECU AND ITS BRACKET.

(MIKE)>> WE'RE GETTING DOWN TO THE FINAL STEPS OF THIS INSTALL. NOW EDELBROCK DID AN EXCELLENT JOB ENGINEERING THIS SYSTEM. NOW THIS IS AN INSTALL THAT ANYONE WITH BASIC MECHANICAL

KNOWLEDGE AND A FEW HAND TOOLS CAN ACTUALLY HANDLE. NOW THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL IS VERY DETAILED AND HAS PICTURES FOR EACH AND EVERY STEP. WHEN WE GET THIS THING ALL WRAPPED UP WE'RE GONNA HAVE A LIGHT WEIGHT SUPERCHARGED REAR WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE THAT FITS RIGHT AT HOME WITH ANY OF TODAY'S MUSCLE CARS. NOW THE EVAP, PCV, AND BRAKE BOOSTER HOSES ARE ATTACHED TO THE NOSE OF THE SUPERCHARGER, AND THE THROTTLE BODY GOES BACK ON. MAKING THE CONNECTION TO IT IS A SUPPLIED EXTENSION HARNESS.

THE INCLUDED BELT IS ROUTED AROUND ALL THE PULLEYS.

(PAT)>> TADA!

(MIKE)>> NICE! AND THE FRONT HALF OF THE AIR BOX ASSEMBLY IS INSTALLED. THEN THE FILTER IS LAID IN.

(PAT)>> AND THE REAR HALF OF THE AIR BOX IS POSITIONED AND SECURED IN PLACE.

(MIKE)>> NOW THE MASS AIR FLOW HARNESS EXTENSION IS CONNECTED.

THE DRAINED COOLANT FROM EARLIER IS PUT BACK IN THE RADIATOR, AND A 50-50 COOLANT MIXTURE FILLS THE SUPERCHARGER COOLING SYSTEM.

(PAT)>> BEFORE WE FIRE THIS UP, ANYTHING THAT GETS SUPERCHARGED NEEDS A BETTER FLOWING AND MORE AGGRESSIVE SOUNDING EXHAUST IN OUR OPINION. NOW OUR CHOICE COMES FROM THE MOST FAMOUS LINE

IN EXHAUST, HOOKER. THIS IS THEIR BLACK HEART SERIES AND IT'S CONSTRUCTED OF 18 GAUGE 304 STAINLESS. IT IS SEVEN POUNDS LIGHTER THAN THE FACTORY SYSTEM. PLUS IT HAS A TWO AND A HALF INCH PIPE DIAMETER. WITH THE STOCK SYSTEM REMOVED, THE RESONATOR AND MID PIPE GO ON FIRST AS AN ASSEMBLY, AND IS SUPPORTED BY THE FACTORY HANGERS FOR MAXIMUM GROUND CLEARANCE. THE DRIVER'S SIDE MUFFLER IS NEXT. IT'S STAINLESS AND SPORTS THE HOOKER LOGO. THE PASSENGER SIDE FOLLOWS, AND TIGHTENING ALL THE CLAMPS MAKES THIS THE EASIEST CAT BACK WE'VE EVER INSTALLED.

[ engine revving ]

(PAT)>> SOUNDS GOOD!

(MIKE)>> ALL RIGHT, HERE WE GO!

(PAT)>> WELCOME BACK. WE GOT THE SCION BACK ON THE CHASSIS DYNO AND SEEING HOW MUCH WE IMPROVED ON THAT 171 HORSEPOWER THAT WE LAID DOWN ON THE BASELINE PULL.

NOW INCIDENTALLY THAT IS 16.14 POUND PER HORSEPOWER. SO NOW LET'S SEE WHAT THAT EDELBROCK EFORCE AND HOOKER BLACK HEART EXHAUST DOES FOR OUR POWER NUMBERS. ARE YOU READY FOR THIS? FIRST PULL, 266 HORSE, 199 POUND FEET. THAT'S A BIG PERCENTAGE WISE IMPROVEMENT.

(MIKE)>> I THINK THAT'S 92 HORSE.

(PAT)>> 58 POUND FEET OF TORQUE.

(MIKE)>> THEY CLAIM 242 ON THE EDELBROCK'S SITE AS THE GAINS AT THE TIRE.

(PAT)>> AND BOY WE'VE SURPASSED THAT WITH EASE. MAKE ANOTHER HIT.

(MIKE)>> YEAH LET'S MAKE SURE. [ engine revving ]

(PAT)>> A LITTLE BIT BETTER, 268 FOR POWER, 203 POUND FEET.

(MIKE)>> NOW WE'RE TALKING!

(MIKE)>> YOU CAN'T COMPLAIN ABOUT THAT.

(PAT)>> THAT IS SO CLOSE TO MAKING 100 MORE HORSE AT THE TIRE. THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE. THIS CAR WEIGHS 2,760 AND YOU DIVIDE THAT BY 268, THAT IS 10.298. SO YOU WENT FROM 16 POUNDS PER HORSE TO 10 POUNDS PER HORSE.

(MIKE)>> NOW HERE'S WHERE THAT GETS INTERESTING TOO. THIS CAR WILL RUN WITH THE FOUR POINT SIX LITER MUSTANG GT AT THAT POWER TO WEIGHT.

(PAT)>> VERY, VERY IMPRESSIVE, VERY IMPRESSIVE, I LOVE IT.

(MIKE)>> FUN LITTLE PLATFORM.

(PAT)>> YOU BET. IF YOU THINK THAT WE'RE DONE WITH THIS VEHICLE WE'RE NOT. WE HAVE ALL THIS EXTRA POWER. NOW WE'RE GONNA MAKE IT STICK TO THE TRACK EVEN BETTER, AND THAT'S COMING UP DOWN THE ROAD.

(MIKE)>> TODAY'S TECH TIP IS GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW TO CLEARANCE A BLOCK TO ACCEPT A STROKER ROTATING ASSEMBLY. NOW THIS WILL BENEFIT YOU IN A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT WAYS. THE FIRST, IT'LL ALLOW YOU TO SAVE MONEY AT THE MACHINE SHOP BY ELIMINATING A STEP THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TO DO, AND SECOND, IT LETS YOU EXPAND YOUR KNOWLEDGE, MAKING YOU A BETTER ENGINE BUILDER.

THE TOOLS YOU'LL NEED FOR THIS ARE REALLY BASIC, A DIE

GRINDER, CARBIDE BURR, AND A CARTRIDGE ROLL.

(PAT)>> WHEN THE STROKE IS INCREASED ON A CRANK SHAFT, BOTH ITS COUNTER WEIGHTS AND ITS JOURNALS MOVE AWAY FROM ITS CENTERLINE. NOW MOST BLOCKS CAN ONLY ACCOMMODATE STOCK STROKES DUE TO ITS PACKAGING WHEN THE TIME THE ENGINE WAS DESIGNED.

SO THE MAJORITY OF THE TIME A CLEARANCE PROBLEM WILL DEVELOP AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CYLINDER IN THE BLOCK. TO FIND OUT EXACTLY WHERE THAT LACK OF CLEARANCE IS WE NEED TO DO A LITTLE MOCK UP, AND THAT INVOLVES INSTALLING SOME MAIN BEARINGS. WE'LL USE THE FRONT, THE THRUST, AND THE REAR BEARING. USE A LITTLE OIL TO LUBE THEM UP, AND DROP IN THE CRANK SHAFT. WITH BEARINGS IN THE MAIN CAPS, THEY CAN GO ON AND WE'LL TORQUE THEM IN PLACE. NOW WE CAN INSTALL THE PISTON AND ROD ASSEMBLIES IN THE FRONT TWO CYLINDERS. THIS IS A SMALL BLOCK MOPAR BUT THE PROCEDURE IS COMMON PLACE IN ANY CONVENTIONAL VEIGHT YOU PUT A STROKER KIT INTO. NOW THE STOCK STROKE ON THIS IS THREEFIVE-80 BUT WE'VE INCREASED IT TO FOUR INCH. NOW THAT'S A 420 THOUSANDTHS INCREASE AND HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING.

(MIKE)>> THE ROD BOLT STICKS OUT THE FARTHEST. NOW IT HITS THE BOTTOM OF THE CYLINDER, MAKING THIS THE INTERFERENCE.

USING A SHARPIE OR PAINT PEN, MARK THE AREA OF THE CYLINDER AROUND THE ROD BOLT. HERE'S A LITTLE TIP. MAKE SURE TO MOVE THE RODS TOWARDS THE BACK OF THE ENGINE AND CHECK FOR CLEARANCE ON THE OTHER SIDE. IT HITS AS WELL. SO ANOTHER MARK IS NEEDED. AT THIS TIME YOU SHOULD PULL THE PISTON AND ROD ASSEMBLIES AND REPEAT THE PROCESS ON THE REST OF THE CYLINDERS. NOW WE CAN REMOVE THE CRANK.

(PAT)>> AND WITH A DIE GRINDER AND A PAIR OF SAFETY GLASSES, THE CLEARANCING BEGINS. START OUT SLOWLY AND GRIND DIRECTLY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MARK. BURRS REMOVE MATERIAL FAST, SO TAKE YOUR TIME. YOU CAN ALWAYS GRIND MORE BUT PUTTING IT BACK IS A PROBLEM. WE LIKE TO SEE A MINIMUM OF 60 THOUSANDTHS CLEARANCE, WHICH IS ABOUT THE DIAMETER OF A STANDARD PAPER CLIP. THE LAST STEP IS TO GO OVER EVERYTHING THAT YOU GROUND ON WITH A CARTRIDGE ROLL.

NOW DOING THIS CLEARANCING WILL SAVE YOU AT LEAST A COUPLE OF HUNDRED BUCKS, WHICH YOU CAN PUT TOWARDS

MORE GO FAST PARTS. JUST BE SURE YOU GIVE THE BLOCK A THOROUGH CLEANING AFTERWARDS.

(MIKE)>> THIS AIRAID COLD AIR INTAKE SYSTEM IS DESIGNED TO GIVE YOUR 2015 THROUGH '17 MUSTANG GT MORE HORSEPOWER, MORE TORQUE, AND IMPROVED FUEL ECONOMY.

NOW IT'S COMPUTER DESIGNED FOR MAXIMUM AIR FLOW AND DOES NOT REQUIRE A RETUNE TO THE FACTORY ECU. NOW THE INTAKE BOX IS ROTO MOLDED AND DRAWS IN FRESH, COOL AIR FROM THE FACTORY INTAKE DUCT. NOW THIS COOL PLEXIGLASS COVER ADDS STYLING UNDER THE HOOD AND ALSO ALLOWS YOU TO CHECK THE CONDITION OF THE AIR FILTER WITH JUST A QUICK GLANCE. NOW THE FILTER COMES PREOILED, IS WASHABLE, AND REUSABLE. NOW YOU CAN GET YOUR ENTIRE SYSTEM FROM SUMMIT RACING FOR $356 BUCKS.

(PAT)>> EVEN MODERN FUEL INJECTED VEHICLES NEED A LITTLE TLC NOWADAYS TO KEEP THEM RUNNING CORRECTLY. ROYAL PURPLE'S MAX ATOMIZER FUEL INJECTION CLEANER IS SPECIALLY FORMULATE TO GET BACK FUEL MILEAGE, IMPROVE THROTTLE RESPONSE, WHICH MAXIMIZES HORSEPOWER. IT'S THE ONLY FUEL INJECTION CLEANER THAT STABILIZES ETHANOL AND WORKS WITH BOTH GASOLINE AND DIESEL FUELS. IT WON'T HARM ANY EMISSIONS EQUIPMENT, AND JUST ONE SIX OUNCE BOTTLE TREATS UP TO 20 GALLONS OF FUEL, AND YOU CAN PICK UP YOURS AT YOUR FAVORITE AUTOMOTIVE RETAILER.

(MIKE)>> IF YOU HAVE A CARBURETOR ON YOUR VEHICLE AND WANT TO PUT AN END TO COLD START ISSUES, HESITATIONS, AND FLOODING WITH A DIRECT BOLT ON REPLACEMENT THIS IS A SMART CHOICE. IT'S HOLLEY'S NEW SNIPER EFI. NOW THIS THROTTLE BODY BOLTS TO ANY 41-50 SQUARE FLANGED INTAKE MANIFOLD. THE THROTTLE BODY HOUSES THE INJECTORS, ECU, FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR, AND ALL THE OTHER SENSORS. IT'S AN EASY FOUR WIRE HOOK UP AND IT'S SELF LEARNING FOR EASE OF USE. NOW THIS UNIT WILL SUPPORT UP TO 650 HORSEPOWER. IT COMES WITH A FULL COLOR HAND HELD MONITOR, BRACKETRY, AND ALL THE OTHER HARDWARE YOU NEED FOR A STRAIGHT

FORWARD INSTALLATION. THE COST, JUST UNDER $1,000 BUCKS.

(PAT)>> WELL IT'S TIME TO PUT THE TOOLS AWAY CAUSE WE'RE ALL OUT OF TIME FOR THIS WEEK. WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME.
