Two New Products, Twice The Sass


MBMBAM Lube Bag

Missed us? Sorry. Someone forwarded us over a link to the My Brother, My Brother and Me podcast, and we’ve been incapacitated with a serious case of the funny bones. And, between the peals of laughter, we’ve been trying to come up with the perfect question to ask these modern-era advice dispensers.

So, it goes without saying that the workflow has gone from the raging river of a frat boy with 80 ounces of Natty Ice in his gut to the sad trickle of an aging insurance adjuster with an engorged prostate. For the sake of appeasing the suits, though, we did bust out these two new products. Check it:

Edge Attitude CT/CTS Upgrade KitIn the old days, an attitude upgrade came from dad’s swift backhand. These days, it’s done with fancy electronics found inside of highfalutin performance chips. Since all electronics eventually become obsolete, Edge Performance Chips created a special upgrade kit that lets you swap out your old-school Edge Juice with the new-school CS (color screen) or CTS (color touch screen). Here are the new performance chips:

Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Superchips Tuners (But Were Afraid To Ask)


Superchips

Some questions are best left unasked. Should I have waited 30 minutes after eating before jumping into that pond? Should I have imported a Croatian bride sight unseen? Should I have seen the doctor before it turned green?

Other questions, though, are best left asked. Is this half and half expired? Is that hitchhiker twitching too much to pick up? What’s the difference between the different Superchips programmers? Today, we’ll answer one of those questions. Since dairy and dudes on the side of the road with their thumbs drawn are beyond our expertise, we’ll stick with what we know: Superchips.

No Taxman Here: Just A Pair Of New Accessories From DICE Electronics and VIAIR


Taxman

If you’re a fan of George Harrison, then yesterday must have been like Christmas. Everywhere, everyone was dusting off their Revolver albums and putting Harrison’s “Taxman” into heavy rotation in honor of our annual duty of forking over a chunk of hard-earned cash to the IRS.

Hopefully, though, you got a tidy refund. And if it’s burning a hole in your pocket, we added a couple new accessories onto the site that are worth checking out.

DICE G2 iPod & iPhone CradlesIt’s your typical Ice-T-goes-from-singing-about-dusting-cops-off-to-playing-a-cop story: the O.G. DICE Electronics G2 had a tad too much G for middle-America, but this restyled iPod cradle with diminished G-ness is just right for the amber waves of skittish shoppers. Best of all, this iPod/iPhone car cradle works perfectly with Dice Silverline Pro iPod Car Adapters and the new Dice MediaBridge.

DICE G2 iPod and iPhone Cradles

VIAIR 85P Portable Air CompressorRemember: it’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog. And this 60 psi air compressor from VIAIR packs a mean bite even though it weighs in at a mere 4.25 lbs—that’s less than a Chihuahua!

VIAIR 85P Portable Air Compressor

And if these aren’t of interest to you, here are a few timeless classics worthy of any tax rebate:

  • Trailer Hitches: Get where you’re going and bring what you need in style with a beefy trailer hitch. There are many manufacturers to choose from, but Curt Hitch has a solid reputation for superior fitment and quality that can’t be beat.
  • Tonneau Covers: Nothing beats the slicked n’ tricked look of a custom truck. Give yours that little extra by donning it with a shiny new truck bed cover from Bak tonneau.
  • Performance Chips: Just because your ride looks and sounds stock doesn’t mean it is. Give your ride a stealthy boost of power by tuning it with a Superchips, Hypertech or DiabloSport power programmer.
  • Brakes: If you want to stop faster, you gotta beef up those discs and pads. EBC rotors keep their cool under pressure, much better than those stock rotors you got.  Mate them to a set of Hawk brake pads and you’ve got a winning combination.

Well, times have changed, and now Edge chips has upgraded the diesel tuning experience by reinventing the Attitude with a whole new interface: the CS Attitude and the CTS Attitude. What’s the difference, you ask? Well, the Edge CTS has a touch screen and the Edge CS doesn’t…that’s it.

New 2010 Camaro Performance Chip from SuperChips!


2010-Camaro-Hardtop-Convertible

Lets face it, the new Camaro is HOT! And we want to help make it even hotter, which is why we’ve added a new Street Scene body kit and spoiler to make it look mean.  And now you can give all that show some serious go with one of our performance chips. There’s a handful of tuners that already support the 2010 Camaro, here’s the breakdown:

  • Hypertech Max Energy – For the 6.2L engine, you get an estimated 12+ hp, 20+ft-lbs of torque (manual transmission)
  • DiabloSport Predator– For the 6.2L engine, you get an estimated 10-20 hp, 10-20 ft-lbs of torque (manual transmission)
  • DiabloSport Trinity – For the 6.2L engine, you get an estimated 10-20 hp, 10-20 ft-lbs of torque (manual transmission)
  • Jet Performance Chips – For the 6.2L engine, you get an estimated 15-17 hp, 15-17 ft-lbs of torque (SS, manual transmission)

While these are all good options from companies that have proven their tuning abilities time and time again, now there’s a new guy on the block that’s looking to push the limits and deliver some serious performance gains.  Meet the Special Edition Superchips Flashpaq.

2010-Camaro-Superchips-Flashpaq

The Flashpaq SE delivers performance results that the others can’t touch.  If you’re sporting the SS with a manual transmission, you can now pack an additional 19.9 ponies under your hood and 18.3 ft-lbs of torque.  Did you get the automatic? Good news there too, because the drivetrain efficiencies net you 21 extra horses and 21 ft-lbs of torque!  Now that’s some serious muscle; throw on the standard bolt-on’s and you’ve got a Camaro that’ll lead any pack.  Get yours today at AutoAnything.com.

Jeep Accessories from Smittybilt, New Edge Evolutions & a Truck Bed Slide – An AutoAnything Weekly Update


Yes, another Friday is upon us.  In San Diego, the sun is shining, its a comfortable 80 degrees  outside and there’s a south-western swell working it’s way toward the shore.  Since I don’t want to admit that summer is almost over, I’m going to stay in denial and make the most of it.


If you’re looking to kill a little time, check out the six new products we added this week.  The Edge Evolution has been updated with two new models, the CS (color screen) and the CTS (Color TouchScreen).  A few more jeep accessories from Smittybilt were added, and we teamed up with IFW to give you a high-quality truck bed slide.
Truck Bed Slide
  • Westin Wind Guard – Crack open your windows without letting in deafening wind noise. These vent visors are made by Wade, branded by Westin and molded from sleek plastic that’ll keep the wind at guard.
  • IFW Bed Slide – If you’re not made of the same stuff as Stretch Armstrong, then the BedSlide helps you easily load and unload your truck bed.
  • Edge CS Evolution Programmer – See all of your tuning power in full color with this Edge Evolution power programmer. (CS = Color Screen)

Gas Prices Going Up? Improve Your MPG to keep Fuel Costs Down!


It’s good for a laugh, and I’m amazed they were able to use the AAA logo, but the fact is that summer time drives up gas prices. If you are looking to save some cash at the pump, stop planting your lead foot on the pedals. Alternatively, you can check out our gas saving products. If you’re a car owner, a power programmer like the DiabloSport Trinity. These tuners work by optimizing your air-fuel ratio for higher efficiency. This directly translates into more horsepower and torque, but with the right driving techniques, you can also increase your fuel economy by up to 20%!

If you own a pickup, a truck bed cover can help reduce drag and increase MPG’s, not to mention the added security and better styling that comes with a tonneau cover.

Luckily, RBP Logo Floor Mats are there to catch those ranch-flavored nuggets inside their plush fabric, where they can later be retrieved, blown off, and gingerly savored. And, these floor mats are branded with the RBP logo, so if you’ve also got an RBP grille or badge kit on the outside of your rig, then the proverbial drapes will match the carpet.

That’s all for this Friday, check back next week to get the low-down on our latest product additions!

New Winter Driving Products – AutoAnything Weekly Product Review


Turkey day is right around the corner, which means that fall is now behind us and we are on the cusp of the winter season. Much like that childhood story of the Squirrel and the Grasshopper, we’ve been working hard in preparation for the cold winter months ahead of us. We’ve got three new seat covers from Cal Trend to help keep your buns warm and your style fresh. Available in three styles;

In our Driving Accessories department, you can find our new line of Thule snow chains. We’ve got five chain-linked styles to help you get through whatever the winter weather throws at you.

  • Thule CB-12 tire chains are a standard, economical tire chain that will safely get you from point A to point B without breaking your piggy bank in the process.
  • Thule CS-10 tire chains are easy to slip on any tire and feature a self-tightening system to keep them hugging your wheels. When you’re ready to take them off, just hit the quick release button and prepare to stow.
  • Thule K-Summit tire chains are the creme de la creme of tire chains. Using a special lug nut mounted ratcheting system, these chains require no rear wheel clearance and feature tightening springs that eliminate wheel-slap and maximize grip.
  • Thule XB-16 tire chains are made from heavy duty chain links to claw through even the thickest road ice. Color coded assembly points make for easy installation in bleak weather conditions.
  • Thule XG-12 tire chains are specially made for heavier vehicles, constructed of hardened steel and designed to give extra grip when you need it most.

With these snow chains, you’ll be prepared to go out in any conditions, whether you’re going to the grocery store or hitting the slopes. Now that you’ve got the ability to drive in snowy weather, you should also be able to bring all your gear along too, which is why we added another ski rack, bike rack and a cargo roof bag line that will keep your necessities dry in rain, sleet or snow.

  • The Thule SnowCat ski and snowboard rack can latch onto your factory roof rails and then secure up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards for your mogul/shredding pleasure.
  • The Yakima Beddy Jo truck bed bike rack secures two bikes safely in the bed of your truck, keeping them from getting scratched up, dinged or stolen.
  • The Yakima GetOut roof cargo bag offers up to 13 cubic feet of additional cargo space and provides some weatherproofing, perfect for traveling through mild weather conditions.
  • The Yakima GetOut Pro roof cargo bag has all the same great features as the original GetOut, but has durable weatherproof seams and a bug-splatter-friendly finish.
  • The Yakima FarOut roof cargo bag is a campers dream. This triple-duty cargo bag can be strapped to your roof, used as a backpack or a hanging closest for maximum versatility. Offering 7 cubic feet of storage space, the FarOut cargo bag gives you the most functionality and portability for the buck.

If you’re rolling around in the snow, you should do it with some style. We added some more chrome accessories and another grille guard too:

And if you’re looking for more power, we got you covered there too. Remember last week when we added BBK? Well we got two more kick ass BBK performance products and a few from DiabloSport too.

  • BBK cold air intake systems net you an additional 7 to 21 horsepower by feeding your engine cooler air in bigger quantities than your stock air intake would allow.
  • A BBK intake manifold will let your engine produce up to 24 more horses by flowing even more air directly into your cylinders. Made from premium aluminum, this intake manifold saves weight, adds power and looks great.
  • The DiabloSport Mafia Mass Air Flow tuner will let you maximize horsepower gains from the modifications you make to your intake system, netting you maximum bang for the buck.
  • The DiabloSport PC Interface USB cable lets you hookup your DiabloSport Predator tuner to your PC so you can get the latest tunes and the most power from your engine.

AutoAnything Weekly Product Review: New Gas Saving Chips!


After a couple of late nights and countless pots of coffee, we’ve secured four new gas saving chips and power programmers that’ll plaster a smile on your face like a bug hitting a windshield.

First up is the SuperChips Mileage XS Fuel Economy Programmer: This bad boy tunes your vehicle for optimum fuel economy while giving you a modest boost in power.  It’ll even tune certain vehicles to run on lower-octane fuels to save you extra money at the pumps.  Extra features include speedometer calibration for larger tires, it clears engine codes and it can be upgraded to a Superchips Flashpaq by updating the firmware.  Superchips Mileage XS Programmers are backed by a 1-year warranty.

Then we got the Bully Dog E3 Diesel Downloader and the Bully Dog E3 Gas Downloader: These guys offer 1 engine tune to simplify user experience and improve fuel economy.  Modest power gains of 50hp and 100 ft-lbs of torque can be expected, along with up to 5 more miles per gallon!  These Bully Dog tuners will also clear trouble codes, perform DPF Burn-off/ Mobile Desoot (GM Duramax LMM and Dodge 6.7L Cummins only) and recalibrate speedometers for larger tires, while on-the-fly tuning gives you the freedom to toggle between stock and tuned settings.  Bully Dog E3 Downloaders are backed by a 1-year warranty.

Last up is the Jet V-Force Plus Power Control Module: This is one gnarly hand held tuner.  You can improve horsepower, torque, throttle response and fuel economy with just the touch of a button.  Once you’ve gotten your ride setup, there are 14 different monitoring screens so you can keep your eyes on anything from fuel economy to the manifold pressure to the air/fuel ratio (O2 sensor sold seperately).  The Jet V-Force Plus PCM is backed by a lifetime warranty.

Hype vs. Production: is the Hypertech Max Energy Programmer worth it?


The TV commercials, radio ads, and even magazine pages about Hypertech’s new Max Energy programmer are coming at auto enthusiasts in waves. Among the claims of huge horsepower gains and other handy adjustments, there are also big promises of gas savings. Does the hype measure up to the real-world results? Read on to find out.

Programmers have become all the rage in automotive performance upgrades. Thanks to the nature of computer-controlled engines, a little box is the best and fastest way to tune. Naturally, when the latest and greatest is released by one of the major programming companies, the ad blitz begins.

This time, it’s Hypertech and the new Max Energy programmer. The expectations have been ratcheted up this time, with big and bold claims of huge gas mileage savings, 50+ horsepower for gas vehicles and 120+ for diesels, plus the alleged ability to get big gains on low-octane gas. Enthusiasts who know less about cars and performance have been sent off drooling; gearheads remain quite skeptical.

Let’s look at the horsepower gains first, starting with the claimed 50+ boost to gas vehicles. Of course, you can’t get this with every vehicle the Max Energy fits. This dyno-proven gain belongs to the Ford Shelby GT. Vehicles with less displacement and considerably less performance equipment can’t expect to get even half that much of a gain. Most of the gas trucks will be in the 20 range. Only the Hemi-powered DC cars can get up to that mid-20s range too; smaller V6s won’t even get close. Because of the massive compression, diesels can see some unruly gains from this type of programming. The Max Energy also claims to keep these diesels from suffering high EGT damage, thanks to tuning that keeps power high without over-fueling, even when towing. And, it claims to not de-fuel and kill your momentum.

The big problem with the big power gain claim is this: huge, noticeable HP boosts only happen at RPMs most drivers won’t reach—especially if they have an automatic. Peak horsepower usually happens around 4500-5500 RPM. That’s not to say the smaller gains at lower RPMs won’t be noticeable, but the impressive power only happens when you’re really gunning it.

On to the gas savings claims. This feature is one of the main reasons programmers have become so popular in the two years since $3/gallon became the societal norm. Programmers didn’t previously sell themselves on mileage, but began doing so once the big pinch at the pump began. Hypertech reports test vehicles gaining up to 6 MPG, with others settling in the 1-2 MPG gain range. In terms of real-world experience with programmers and mileage, the gains are almost always more modest than the ad claims. A boost of 1-2 MPGs—if any gain is achieved—is the most common scenario. Many drivers see no mileage gains because they simply can’t keep their foot far enough out of the gas pedal.

Some features of the Max Energy are undisputable. The ability on most vehicles to change tire size for odometer and speedometer corrections is great. Reading engine trouble codes is a mainstay of programmers; it’s present here too. Fuel octane settings are also available for some models to help save some coin at the pump. But, it’s not available for performance cars, and as you adjust the octane down, the power also goes down.

The bottom line on the Max Energy: set realistic expectations before you buy. The massive horsepower gains in the ads are probably far from what you’ll actually get, but you will get enough of a gain in power to notice it everywhere you drive. For gas mileage, don’t expect this programmer to save you from all of your petrol peril. Gaining 1-2 MPG is realistic if you’re not racing; anything more is gravy. If you can also make use of the other cool features, this new programmer is a solid buy. If you were hoping to get 50 hp more, save 6 MPG and run all on ethanol, you may want to pass until a programmer that can do all of those things exists.

Performance chips like the Hypertech Max Energy Programmer, the latest Hypertech programmer, comes with much hype. Do your homework first.
