(MIKE)>> WELCOME TO ENGINE POWER. ANOTHER PROJECT VEHICLE HAS MADE ITS WAY INTO THE TECH CENTER, A 2016 MUSTANG GT TO BE EXACT. IT BELONGS TO RISLONE, AND PAT AND I WERE HANDED THE KEYS TO CREATE A SWEEPSTAKES CAR THAT'S SUPER RELIABLE AND MAKES BIG POWER JUST SO ONE OF YOU CAN PARK IT IN YOUR GARAGE. MUSTANGS HAVE IT ALL IN MY OPINION. THE COYOTE ENGINE PLATFORM HAS PROVEN ITSELF IN ALL TYPES OF RACING, AND HAS EXCELLENT STREET RELIABILITY EVEN WHEN PUSHED TO THE LIMITS. INSIDE IS A SUPER COMFORTABLE COCKPIT THAT'S VERY ATTRACTIVE. NOW THIS CAR IS EQUIPPED WITH A SIX SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION. IT HAS A FACTORY PUSH BUTTON START, AS WELL AS TOGGLE SWITCHES TO GIVE IT A RACIER LOOK AND FEEL. A TOUCH SCREEN HEAD UNIT HAS SO MANY OPTIONS IT'S HARD TO FOLLOW. WHAT'S NOT HARD TO FOLLOW IS HOW FAR THE MUSTANG HAS COME SINCE 1964.

(PAT)>> WOO, AND AS ALWAYS THE BUILD STARTS WITH A BASELINE. [ engine revving ]

(PAT)>> WE'LL MAKE ALL THE RUNS IN FIFTH GEAR, WHICH IS ONE TO ONE IN THE TRANS. FIRST RIP 357 HORSE, 350 FOOT POUNDS OF TORQUE.

(MIKE)>> I THINK WE CAN GET A 60 OR 61 OUT OF IT.

(PAT)>> YEAH, ALL THESE ARE REGULAR, CARS LIKE THIS ARE IN THAT RANGE. I MEAN THIS IS CLOSE. NOW IT'S GOT A LITTLE TEMP IN THE REAR END AND THE TRANS. MAKE ANOTHER BANG ON IT AND... [ engine revving ]

(PAT)>> WE TYPICALLY MAKE TWO OR THREE RUNS TO GET A SOLID BASELINE AVERAGE. [ engine revving ]

(PAT)>> ALL RIGHT, 351 HORSE, TORQUE DROPPED JUST A LITTLE BIT AT 349.

(MIKE)>> WOW, THAT'S A PRETTY DESCENT DROP OFF.

(PAT)>> YEAH, AND IT COULD BE THE AIR IN THE BUILDING. IT COULD BE A LOT OF OTHER STUFF YOU KNOW. IT COULD BE JUST ATMOSPHERIC, BUT THAT'S GOOD FOR THESE CARS. THEY ALL DYNO BETWEEN 350 AND 360.

(MIKE)>> LET'S DO ONE MORE JUST TO SAY WE HAD OUR THREE, AND TO THE LIFT WE GO.

(PAT)>> ALL RIGHT. RUNNING THE CAR RAISES THE TEMPS OF THE DRIVELINE FLUIDS, AND SOMETIMES YOU WILL SEE A LITTLE INCREASE IN POWER. [ engine revving ]

(PAT)>> ALL RIGHT, THAT WAS A LITTLE BETTER ON POWER. 354 HORSE, 342 FOR TORQUE. ALL RIGHT, NOT BAD. IT'S TIME TO PUT ON SOME WORK SHIRTS AND DO A LITTLE WORK.

(MIKE)>> YES!

(PAT)>> THIS BUILD AND SWEEPSTAKES IS TO PROMOTE RISLONE'S LATEST PRODUCTS, AND FIRST UP IS THEIR MOST ADVANCED FORMULATION EVER. IT'S CALLED NANOPRIME ENGINE AND OIL ADDITIVE, AND IT'S FORMULATED WITH SYNTHETIC NANO TECHNOLOGY. IT'S MADE FROM TUNGSTEN NANO SPHERES AND THEY CLAIM IT FILLS AND SMOOTHS SURFACE IRREGULARITIES AND BEARING SURFACES IN HIGH WEAR AREAS. IT ALSO CREATES A SPRING LIKE CUSHION FOR EXTREME PROTECTION. IT CAN BE USED IN REGULAR OR SYNTHETIC OILS, BUT WHEN ADDED TO A NONSYNTHETIC OIL IT TURNS IT INTO A PREMIUM SYNTHETIC BLEND. THE SECOND IS THEIR COMPLETE FUEL SYSTEM GASOLINE TREATMENT. IT INCREASE POWER, PERFORMANCE, AND MILEAGE BY CLEANING THE ENTIRE FUEL SYSTEM. IT ELIMINATES NOISY INJECTORS, ROUGH IDLE, HARD STARTS, AND HESITATION. IT COMES WITH AN EASY NOZZLE FOR EASY POURING IN ANY CAR, EVEN THOSE WITH CAPLESS FUEL TANKS. NOW WHEN WE COME BACK WE'LL SEE THE PARTS THAT GO ON THIS CAR AND THE GUYS WHO BROUGHT THEM.

(MIKE)>> WELCOME BACK TO THE RISLONE MUSTANG GIVEAWAY BUILD. PROJECTS LIKE THIS TAKE PLANNING AND INVOLVEMENT FROM SEVERAL SOURCES. LATE MODEL RESTORATION, OR LMR FOR SHORT, STEPPED UP TO THE PLATE AND SUPPLIED SEVERAL PARTS THAT WILL ENHANCE OUR MUSTANG'S HANDLING, BRAKING, AND RIDE QUALITY. NOW FIRST UP IS THIS AWESOME FORD RACING PERFORMANCE PACK SIX PISTON BRAKE KIT. NOW IT COMES WITH 15 INCH VENTED ROTORS AND SIX PISTON ALUMINUM BREMBO CALIPERS. FOR THE HANDLING DEPARTMENT LMR BROUGHT A TRACK HANDLING PACK, WHICH WILL PUT A LITTLE ROAD RACE INTO ANY LATE MODEL MUSTANG. NOW ALL THE COMPONENTS ARE DESIGNED TO WORK TOGETHER. THE SYSTEM LOWERS THE CAR ABOUT ONE INCH FOR A MORE AGGRESSIVE STANCE, AND THIS WHOLE SETUP HAS A FOCUS ON BETTER HANDLING OUT AT THE TRACK. DUE TO THAT MASSIVE FRONT BRAKE KIT, WHEELS AND TIRES WERE ALSO PUT ON THE BUILD LIST. NOW THESE ARE FROM LMR'S IN HOUSE WHEEL BRAND, SVE. THIS IS THE SERIES THREE IN A GLOSS BLACK FINISH. IT HAS A MACHINED LIP AND CHROME RIVETS ALL THE WAY AROUND. NOW THE SPLIT SPOKE DESIGN GIVES IT A KILLER MODERN LOOK. WE'RE GONNA BE RUNNING 20 BY EIGHT AND A HALVES UP FRONT, 20 BY 10'S IN THE REAR, AND ALL OF THEM ARE WRAPPED IN NITTO ENVO TIRES.

(LANDON)>> EVERY MUSTANG I EVER WORKED ON.

(PAT)>> TIME TO MEET OUR SPECIAL GUEST.

(LANDON)>> HOW'S IT GOING EVERYONE? LANDON WITH LATE MODEL RESTORATIONS. BEING REAL MUSTANG ENTHUSIAST AND MORE ENGRAINED WITHIN THE FOX PLATFORM THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE INDUSTRY, WE PROVIDE REAL WORLD VIDEOS.

(PAT)>> LANDON IS LMR'S PRODUCT SPECIALIST AND YOUTUBE STAR. HE'S A BIG ASSET IN SHARING THEIR PARTS LINE AS WELL AS INSTALLS ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND LMR'S YOUTUBE CHANNEL.

(LANDON)>> TAKE IT TO THE TRACK BECAUSE AFTER ALL THAT'S WHY FORD MADE THEM.

(PAT)>> LANDON TELL US ABOUT LMR AND HOW IT GOT STARTED.

(LANDON)>> LATE MODEL RESTORATION, OR LMR FOR SHORT, WAS FOUNDED IN 1999 WITH A SIMPLE CONCEPT TO PROVIDE FOX MUSTANG OWNERS THE RIGHT PARTS AT THE RIGHT TIME.

(PAT)>> NOW WHAT YEAR MUSTANGS DO YOU OFFER PARTS FOR?

(LANDON)>> WE OFFER RESTORATION AND PERFORMANCE PARTS FOR 1979 TO PRESENT MUSTANG AS WELL AS ENCOMPASS OUR INDUSTRY LEADING IN HOUSE BRANDS SUCH AS FIVEO RESTO AND SVE.

(PAT)>> NOW YOU GUYS JUMPED AT THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE A PART OF THIS PROJECT. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?

(LANDON)>> WE JUMPED AT THIS SWEEPSTAKES BUILD TO LET THE MUSTANG ENTHUSIASTS KNOW WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO, AND WHY WE DO IT. WE EAT, SLEEP, AND BREATHE THESE CARS. SO WE WANTED TO LET THE VIEWER KNOW THAT WE ARE POWERED BY ENTHUSIASTS.

(PAT)>> WELL NOW THAT WE KNOW, LET'S GET THE SHOW ON THE ROAD, BY REMOVING THE FACTORY WHEELS AND TIRES ON ALL FOUR CORNERS. UP FRONT THE FLEXIBLE BRAKE LINES CAN BE DISCONNECTED FROM THE HARD LINES, CLAMP ONE OF OUR FLUID STOPPER CLIPS ON THE HARD LINE TO RETAIN THE FLUID. NOW LOOSEN THE CALIPER BOLTS AND REMOVE THE CALIPERS, FOLLOWED BY THE ROTORS. THE BACKING PLATES ALSO COME OFF, ALONG WITH THE FACTORY STRUT. [ impact drill spinning ]

(PAT)>> NOW THE SWAY BAR BRACKETS ARE LOOSENED, AND FROM UNDERNEATH THE SPLASH GUARD IS REMOVED. THAT GIVES US THE ACCESS TO FISH THE SWAY BAR OUT.

(MIKE)>> A SWAY BAR, OR STABILIZER BAR, IS AN ACTUAL TORSION BAR. NOW ITS PURPOSE IS TO REDUCE BODY ROLL BY CONNECTING THE SUSPENSION MOVEMENT OF THE WHEELS AT THE FRONT OR REAR OF THE VEHICLE. NOW ITS MAIN JOB IS TO REDUCE THAT BODY ROLL DURING CORNERING. THE FACTORY BAR IS 32 MILLIMETERS IN DIAMETER. THE FORD RACING BAR IS 37 MILLIMETERS. NOW A THICKER, STIFFER BAR WILL REDUCE BODY ROLL AND DISTRIBUTE THE TURNING EFFORT MORE EVENLY ACROSS BOTH SIDES OF THE VEHICLE. INSTALLING IT TAKES A LITTLE PATIENCE TO GET IT POSITIONED. FOR INSTALLATION THEY COME WITH NEW BUSHINGS AND BRACKETS. THE FACTORY HARDWARE IS REUSED. THESE FORD RACING STRUTS ARE ENGINEERED AND DESIGNED BY FORD PERFORMANCE ENGINEERS. NOW THEY'RE MADE TO WORK WITH THE TRACK PACK WITH THE ONE INCH RIDE HEIGHT DROP. THEY COME PREASSEMBLED, SO NO SPRING COMPRESSORS OR SPECIAL TOOLS ARE NEEDED FOR ASSEMBLY. THEY ATTACH TO THE STRUT TOWER FIRST AND ARE SECURED WITH NEW NUTS FROM THE KIT. NOW THE SPINDLE IS POSITIONED TO THE STRUT AND SECURED WITH THE ORIGINAL SPLINED FASTENERS. NOW THE NUTS ARE TORQUED TO 184 POUND FEET. THE END LINKS CAN BE ATTACHED TO THE STRUT AND THE OTHER END TO THE SWAY BAR. WE'RE GOING FOR A STIFFER, MORE AGGRESSIVE HANDLING FEEL. SO WE'LL USE THE HOLE CLOSEST TO THE BAR.

(PAT)>> OUR NEW BRAKE SYSTEM HAS A ONE INCH LARGER ROTOR DIAMETER, AND THAT IS GONNA DECREASE OUR STOPPING DISTANCE IN A SIGNIFICANT WAY, BUT BEFORE WE CAN PUT THESE ON A NEW BACKING PLATE NEEDS TO GO IN PLACE. NOW THE MASSIVE 15 INCH ROTOR IS PLACED ON THE STUDS. THE CALIPER ATTACHES TO THE SAME MOUNTING POINTS AS THE OLD ONE, AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THEM ON THE CORRECT SIDE. THE BLEEDERS POINT UP. FINALLY THE BRAKE LINE CAN GO ON. AFTER IT'S ATTACHED TO THE CALIPER, ATTACH IT TO THE HARD LINE. DOING IT THIS WAY KEEPS FLUID FROM GETTING ALL OVER THE CALIPER WHEN SCREWING IN THE BANJO BOLT. NOW THAT'S A BIG BRAKE KIT.

(MIKE)>> WHEN YOU BUY A TIRE AND WHEEL PACKAGE FROM LMR THEY ARRIVE TO YOU EXACTLY HOW YOU SEE THEM, MOUNTED, BALANCED, AND TPMS SENSORS INSTALLED. NOW SPLINED LUG NUTS ARE ALSO INCLUDED TO SECURE THEM. THE TIRES UP FRONT ARE 255/35 20'S. THAT WRAPS EVERYTHING UP ON THE FRONT. WE'LL BE BACK IN A COUPLE OF MINUTES.

(MIKE)>> WE'RE BACK AND JUST FINISHED UP THE FRONT SUSPENSION AND BIG BRAKE KIT ON THE RISLONE MUSTANG SWEEPSTAKES CAR. NOW IT'S TIME TO TAKE CARE OF SOME UPGRADES AT THE REAR SUSPENSION. FOR THAT WE HAVE SHOCKS, SPRINGS, SWAY BAR, TOE LINK, AND BUSHINGS. NOW PER THE DETAILED FORD INSTRUCTION MANUAL THE TAIL PIPES AND MUFFLERS ARE THE FIRST THING TO GO. SO LET'S GET THEM OUT. THE EXHAUST HANGERS ARE THE FIRST THINGS TO BE UNBOLTED. THEN TWO CLAMPS ARE LOOSENED ON THE MID PIPES, AND THE ASSEMBLY COMES OUT. A SCREW JACK IS PLACED UNDER THE CONTROL ARM, AND THE TWO LOWER SHOCK ABSORBER BOLTS CAN BE REMOVED. THEN THE TOP TWO, AND IT COMES OUT. NEXT TO BE REMOVED IS THE BRAKE CALIPER, FOLLOWED BY THE ROTOR. THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR IS ALSO UNBOLTED AND LAID TO THE SIDE. THE SAME GOES FOR THE PARKING BRAKE CABLE. NOW WE CAN MARK THE ALIGNMENT CAM'S LOCATION SO THEY GO BACK IN THE EXACT SAME PLACE FOR ALIGNMENT PURPOSES. NOW TWO BOLTS ARE REMOVED, WHICH FREE UP THE TOE LINK. THE SWAY BAR IS UNBOLTED FROM THE END LINK, AND THE LOWER INTEGRAL LINK BOLT IS REMOVED. NOW THE FORWARD LOWER CONTROL ARM TO FRAME BOLT COMES OUT, ALONG WITH THE REAR CONTROL ARM TO FRAME BOLT. NOW THE SPRING IS PULLED OUT AND THE CONTROL ARM DROPS OUT OF PLACE. THE LAST PART TO BE REMOVED IS THE SWAY BAR.

(PAT)>> NEXT THE TOE BEARING GETS REPLACED IN THE REAR KNUCKLE. NOW THE FACTORY ONE HAS RUBBER INSIDE OF IT, AND THE NEW HANDLING PACK ONE IS AN IMPROVED DELRIN DESIGN. NOW THE EASIEST WAY TO GET IT OFF THE CAR IS WITH A BALL JOINT PRESS. IT'S PLACED OVER THE KNUCKLE AND FORCES THE BUSHING OUT AS THE JACK SCREW IS TURNED. BONANZA! THE NEW ONE GOES IN USING THE PRESS AS WELL. MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS ALIGNED AS IT IS FORCED INTO THE KNUCKLE. SOMEWHERE IN THERE. THAT LOOKS LIKE A PRO DID IT. FORD PERFORMANCE'S SPRING AND THE STOCK CONTROL ARM ARE TACKLED NEXT. WE'RE GONNA BE OUT OF TRAVEL HERE ANY SEC.

(MIKE)>> COME ON DOWN.

(PAT)>> IT DOESN'T HURT TO HAVE ANOTHER SET OF HANDS INVOLVED TO GET IT ALL POSITIONED.

(MIKE)>> I THINK YOU'LL THERE NOW. YOU'LL BE ABLE TO WIGGLE THAT BOLT IN.

(PAT)>> NOW THE CONTROL ARM TO FRAME BOLT CAN GO IN. THERE ARE THREE. THE TOE LINK IS NEXT. IT ATTACHES TO THE KNUCKLE WHERE THE NEW BEARING WAS PRESSED IN. THEN TO THE CRADLE USING THE ORIGINAL ALIGNMENT CAM BOLT AND CAMS. TIGHTEN IT MAKING SURE THE MARKS MADE EARLIER ARE ALIGNED. INSTALLING THE NEW SHOCK IS SIMPLE. FIRST ATTACH IT AT THE TOP. THEN TO THE LOWER CONTROL ARM.

(MIKE)>> NOW ALL THE FACTORY RECONNECTIONS CAN BE MADE, LIKE THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR, PARKING BRAKE CABLE, BACKING PLATE, ROTOR, AND CALIPER.

(PAT)>> THE LAST PART OF THE REAR SUSPENSION IS THE SWAY BAR. THIS IS THE SAME BAR USED IN JUSTIN PAWLAK'S FORMULA DRIFT MUSTANG.

(MIKE)>> OUT BACK THE 20 BY 10 SVE SERIES THREE WHEELS ARE WRAPPED IN 275/35 20 NITTOS. LANDON WE HAVE TO GIVE YOU A BIG THANKS FOR HELPING US GET THIS PROJECT TO THIS POINT, AND LMR FOR SUPPLYING THE PARTS. HOW WAS YOUR WEEK WITH US?

(LANDON)>> MIKE MAN, IT WAS A BLAST. IT WAS AN HONOR FOR US TO DONATE A FEW PARTS TO THE RISLONE SWEEPSTAKES CAR FROM LMR DOT COM FOR ALL THINGS '79 TO PRESENT, RESTORATION AND PERFORMANCE PARTS. SHOP THE REAL MUSTANG ENTHUSIASTS AT LMR DOT COM.

(MIKE)>> GOOD DEAL, NOW HOW MUCH DIFFERENT IS THIS THAN YOU DOING YOUR YOUTUBE VIDEOS BACK AT THE SHOP?

(LANDON)>> YOU KNOW MAN, IT'S ACTUALLY VERY SIMILAR, JUST ON A LITTLE BIT LARGER SCALE AND A LITTLE BIT SLOWER PACED. SO IT'S A GREAT TIME.

(MIKE)>> GOOD DEAL, WELL I HOPE IN THE FUTURE WE HAVE ANOTHER MUSTANG BUILD AND BRING YOU IN ON IT.

(LANDON)>> FOR SURE MAN, WE'D LOVE TO BE HERE, APPRECIATE IT.

(MIKE)>> IF YOU THINK WE'RE DONE, WE'RE NOT. SEE YOU IN A MINUTE.

(PAT)>> WELCOME BACK TO ENGINE POWER. WE JUST WRAPPED UP STAGE ONE OF OUR RISLONE MUSTANG GIVEAWAY CAR BY ADDING A FORD PERFORMANCE TRACK HANDLING PACK, MASSIVE 15 INCH FRONT BRAKES, AND AN SVE WHEEL AND TIRE COMBINATION FROM LMR. NOW STAGE TWO IS NEXT AND WE'RE GONNA GIVE YOU A SNEAK PEAK OF THE PERFORMANCE PARTS WE CHOSE TO MAKE THIS S-550 SUPER WORTHY OF ITS SWEEPSTAKES STATUS.

(MIKE)>> POWER ADDERS ARE AS POPULAR AS EVER FOR LATE MODEL MUSCLE CARS. SYSTEMS ARE LITERALLY FLOODING THE MARKET, FROM TWIN TURBOS TO ROOTS BLOWERS, AND CENTRIFUGAL SUPERCHARGERS. NOW WE DECIDED TO GO WITH A PRO CHARGER STAGE TWO SYSTEM ON THE RISLONE MUSTANG. THAT'S DUE TO THE EASE OF INSTALLATION, THE QUALITY OF ALL THE COMPONENTS, AND THE ABILITY TO MAKE MORE POWER ON LESS BOOST THAN THEIR COMPETITION. THE HEART OF THE SYSTEM IS THE NEW PONEX SUPERCHARGER. IT'S MORE EFFICIENT AND MAKES MORE POWER THAN ITS PREDECESSOR, THE PONESC. NOW THE SYSTEM ALSO COMES WITH A MASSIVE INTERCOOLER AND 95 POUND AN HOUR INJECTORS. TO INCREASE VOLTAGE AND FLOW AT THE STOCK FUEL PUMP THEY EVEN INCLUDE A JMS BOOSTAPUMP. PLUS EVERYTHING ELSE YOU NEED FOR A PAVEMENT POUNDING STRAIGHT FORWARD INSTALLATION. WE'RE EVEN GONNA MAKE THE MUSTANG SOUND BETTER WITH HOOKER BLACKHEART EXHAUST.

(PAT)>> WE'LL ALSO BE DOING A TRANSMISSION SWAP ON THIS CAR, AND FOR A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT REASONS, BUT WE'LL GET TO THAT NEXT TIME. FOR NOW EXEDY SENT US THIS FULL CLUTCH KIT TO COMPLETE THE SWAP. IT CONTAINS ONE OF THEIR PUCK STYLE CERAMMETALLIC DISCS FOR BIG POWER APPLICATIONS. PLUS IT IS SFI CERTIFIED AND IT'S SAFE TO DRIVE ON THE STREET OR STRIP, AND IT'S PARTS LIKE THIS THAT WILL MAKE THIS MUSTANG A TRUE PERFORMER FOR ITS LUCKY WINNER.

TODAY'S TECH TIP IS GONNA COVER A COMMONLY OVERLOOKED AND MISUNDERSTOOD SUBJECT, BOLT GRADES AND THREAD PITCHES. HAVING THE CORRECT BOLT FOR THE APPLICATION IS ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL, AND EVERY INDUSTRY HAS SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS FOR BOLTS, BUT USING THE WRONG BOLT AT THE WRONG TIME CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS, OR THE WORST CASE SCENARIO, EVEN FATAL. SO TODAY WE'RE GONNA EDUCATE ON COMMON BOLT SIZES AND THREAD PITCH IN INCH BASED AND METRIC THREADS. BOLT GRADING REFERS TO THE FASTENERS TENSILE STRENGTH AND PSI, MEANING THE AMOUNT OF FORCE IT TAKES TO PULL ON THE FASTENER UNTIL IT COMES APART. BOTH INCH BASED AND METRIC BOLTS HAVE MARKINGS ON THE BOLT HEAD THAT WILL TELL YOU WHAT GRADE THEY ARE. THE HIGHER THE GRADE NUMBER, THE HIGHER THE TENSILE STRENGTH. ALSO BOLT DIAMETER COMES INTO PLAY IN THE RATING. SO STARTING WITH INCH BASED BOLTS, A HEAD WITH NO MARKINGS IS CONSIDERED A GRADE TWO. IT HAS A MINIMUM TENSILE STRENGTH OF 74,000 PSI UP TO A THREE QUARTER INCH DIAMETER, AND THE SAME GRADE TWO BOLT FROM SEVENEIGHTHS TO ONE AND A HALF INCHES IN DIAMETER IS RATED AT A LOWER 60,000 PSI. THE EQUIVALENT METRIC BOLT WOULD HAVE A FIVE POINT EIGHT MARKED ON THE HEAD. NEXT IF AN INCH BASED BOLT HAS THREE HASH MARKS ON ITS HEAD IT'S A GRADE FIVE. THESE HAVE A MINIMUM TENSILE STRENGTH OF 120,000 PSI FROM ONE QUARTER TO ONE INCH IN DIAMETER, AND OVER ONE INCH TO ONE AND HALF INCHES IN DIAMETER IT GOES TO 105,000 PSI. ITS METRIC EQUIVALENT WOULD HAVE AN EIGHT POINT EIGHT ON ITS HEAD. FINALLY SIX HASH MARKS ON THE INCH BASED BOLT HEAD INDICATES THAT IT'S A GRADE EIGHT. THESE BOLTS HAVE 150,000 PSI TENSILE STRENGTH FROM QUARTER INCH ALL THE WAY UP TO ONE AND A HALF INCHES IN DIAMETER. A METRIC BOLT OF THE SAME GRADE WILL HAVE A 10.9 ON ITS BOLT HEAD. NOW LET'S TALK THREAD PITCH. USA INCH BASED BOLT THREADS ARE COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS JUST COARSE AND FINE, BUT TECHNICALLY SPEAKING THEY ARE UNDER SOMETHING CALLED UNIFIED THREAD STANDARD. COARSE THREADS, FORMERLY KNOWN AS USS, ARE NOW UNIFIED NATIONAL COARSE AND FINE THREADS PREVIOUSLY KNOWN AS SAE ARE NOW UNIFIED NATIONAL FINE. THE COARSE AND FINE REFERS TO THE AMOUNT OF THREADS PER INCH ON THE SHANK OF THE BOLT. METRIC BOLTS USE A DIFFERENT STYLE THREAD PITCH TO EXPRESS THE AMOUNT OF THREADS ON THEM. THE HIGHER THE NUMBER, THE MORE COARSE THE THREAD COUNT, AND THAT'S BECAUSE THE THREAD PITCH IS THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE THREADS IN MILLIMETERS. YOU'LL RARELY HEAR A MACHINIST TALK ABOUT COARSE OR FINE. THEY'LL EXPRESS IN THE DIAMETER AND THREADS PER INCH. NOW THERE'S A WHOLE LOT MORE TO TALK ABOUT FASTENERS BUT WE'LL SAVE THAT FOR ANOTHER TIME.

(MIKE)>> A BATTERY IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS ANY OTHER COMPONENT IN THE VEHICLE. THERE ARE CHEAPIES, AND ALSO QUALITY ONES YOU CAN BUY. NOW QUALITY IS WHAT MAKES ODYSSEY BATTERIES A STEP AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION. THEY HAVE 99.99 PERCENT PURE LEAD PLATES INSIDE THE BATTERY. NOW THEY'RE EXTRA THIN, SO THEY CAN FIT MORE OF THEM INSIDE, AND IT GIVES THE BATTERY MORE POWER. NOW THEY'RE VIBRATION RESISTANT AND HAVE A FOUR TO SIX HOUR, 100 PERCENT RECHARGE RATE, WHICH IS THE FASTEST OF ANY SEALED BATTERY ON THE MARKET. NOW THE SERVICE LIFE AS WELL AS THE WARRANTY IS ALSO LONGER THAN THE COMPETITION. ODYSSEY HAS BATTERIES AND MOUNTING SOLUTIONS FOR ALL TYPES OF VEHICLES. TO FIND OUT WHAT BATTERY AND/OR MOUNTING SOLUTION FITS YOUR RIDE LOG ON TO SUMMIT RACING DOT COM.

(PAT)>> IF YOU OWN A EUROPEAN VEHICLE LISTEN UP. POWERSTOP HAS COME TO THE RESCUE AGAIN BY PROVIDING OEM QUALITY BRAKES FOR A LOT LESS THAN YOU'D PAY FOR THEM AT THE DEALERSHIP. THESE EURO STOP COMPONENTS ARE ENGINEERED TO MEET THE STRICT ECER-90 EUROPEAN STANDARDS. THE ROTORS ARE COATED USING GENUINE GEOMET FOR OPTIMUM CORROSION RESISTANCE, AND THEY ALSO USE HIGH CARBON METALLURGY FOR INCREASED PERFORMANCE WITH RESISTANCE TO DISTORTION AND CRACKING. THE PADS ARE HELD TO THE SAME STANDARDS AND MUST DUE TO THE HIGH SPEEDS ON THE NO LIMIT AUTOBAHN. FOR MORE INFORMATION VISIT POWERSTOP DOT COM. WELL THAT'S IT FOR US, WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME.
