New Air Intake Systems, Cash Back Rebates and Great Promos – AutoAnything Weekly Update


January has come and gone, the Steelers just barely beat out the Card’s in the Superbowl and Punxsutawney Phil gets to take another 6 weeks of PTO. As exciting as all that has been, we’ve got some breaking news of our own that hasn’t hit the papers yet.

We’ve added two new products, a cold air intake and a beefy throttle body spacer, both from Street & Performance Electronics. We also setup some fantastic promos with our vendors. They’re so good, in fact, that even our little groundhog friend will be sorry he hibernated through the deals.  :)

New Products from Street & Performance Electronics

  • Helix Power Tower Plus Throttle Body Spacer – The Helix Power Tower Plus gives incoming air the perfect swirly, purported to offer up to an extra 22 HP if you gun it or an extra 4 MPG if you feather it. This bolt-on spacer is pretty easy to install, taking about 45 minutes for most vehicles.
  • AirMax Spiral Flow Air Intake – Here again, Street & Performance puts to work the idea that spinning air swirls some extra horsepower out of the engine. This time, it’s a rifled sleeve inside the intake tube that starts the spin and gets all that extra air in line to burn. Good for extra power, torque and maybe even an MPG or two, this spiral flow intake comes with a high flow washable air filter and a steel heat shield for maximum engine gains. The whole kit comes powder coated for a flawless finish.

Promotions and Rebates

If you thought new products were the only thing we’ve been working on, then you should be stoked to know that we’ve lined up some $25 rebates on a few AFE products and some special promos with Truxedo, BAK, Extang, Undercover, Borla and MBRP. Here’s the deal:

$25 Rebate on AFE Stage 2 Intakes, Blade Runner Manifold & Exhaust Systems

AFE – Get a $25 cash card (via AFE mail-in-rebate) on AFE’s Stage 2 intake, the Blade Runner intake manifold, the Mach Force XP & Large Bore HD exhaust systems. The purchase must be made between 2/1/09 and 4/30/09, click the banner for complete details.

  1. AFE Stage 2 Air Intake – More than just an air filter and plenum, the stage 2 kit replaces your entire air intake tract, improving flow dynamics by providing a more laminar air flow straight into the manifold.
  2. AFE Blade Runner – Perfectly complement your air intake with the Blade Runner intake manifold. Larger than stock and constructed from high quality materials, AFE’s Blade Runner intake manifold will flow more air into your engine, letting it breathe easier and make more power.
  3. AFE Exhaust – Available in two flavors:
  • The AFE Large Bore HD Exhaust is a great way to beef up your exhaust tone. The Large Bore HD uses oversized aluminized tubing to free up extra horsepower and give your engine a nice low end grunt. Available in both cat back and turboback styles.
  • AFE Mach Force XP Exhaust – For maximum power gains, look no further than the Mach Force XP from AFE. Up to 5″ stainless steel piping is used on this monster exhaust, thereby minimizing back pressure and allowing your turbo to spool faster and make more boost. Turboback or catback, it’s your choice, but no matter what you choose, you won’t be disappointed by the power gains.

We’ve also worked out a few truck tonneau cover and exhaust promos.  All of these promotions are valid through 2/28/09. Here’s the quick and dirty break down, click the links if you want to get all the details.

  1. Truxedo Tonneau – Free Tailgate seal with the purchase of any Truxedo Tonneau.

To Flip Or Not To Flip? A Tutorial On Real Estate Investment


With all the recent success in the real estate market, one can only imagine where the market will go. I think that the industry may take an interesting turn.

By now every Joe Schmoe knows about the potential of the real estate market. There have been enough television shows, books and stories about flipping houses that the market has become overrun with money hungry people looking to get rich quick. But has anything really changed?

The idea of investing in real estate and properties is nothing new. The potential has always existed, as it always will. The problem is that the actual process of flipping house is much harder than the TV shows let on. Sure, on paper, the concept of purchasing a hidden gem at a great price, slapping on a coat of paint, and reselling for thousands of dollars more sounds great. If only it were that simple.

It’s complicated! The home buying process is a long, complicated, which can fall apart due to numerous factors. Think about it, most people buy one house during their lifetime and spend the next 30 years paying it off. That means the majority of people aren’t versed in housing contracts, mortgages, broker fees, etc. You really need to know what you are doing. If you misread a contract or don’t fully understand the fine print, you could end up dishing out thousands of dollars!

It takes a lot of time! Most people don’t have the luxury of starting off with a lot of investment capital. Most people work full time jobs just to pay for daily expenses. That means they must hunt for houses on breaks, after work and on weekends to find a good deal. Once you find that good deal you need to be able to act quickly. Some houses only stay on the market for a day. Heck, some houses don’t even make it to the market because realtors give their friends first dibs. Then if you’re luckily enough to find a good deal, you’re going to have to contact contractors, realtors, insurance companies, and all the necessary businesses.

It’s expensive! So you think you can understand the process and you have the time, but do you have the money? For a lot of mortgages you need proof of income or proof that you will be able to pay back the bank. If you want to buy at $200,000 home, you will need $20,000 for the down payment. If you can scrounge that much together, you also need money for renovations and money to pay off the mortgage until the house is resold. One more thing – you need credit. So if you happen to come into some money, you still need to have good credit in order to get the loan.

If you’re still interested then go for it. I image this industry can only exist for so long before the payoff isn’t worth it. In addition, there is one key aspect that makes this job so risky – the market. You can’t control the market. You can’t control when and how many homeowners will be selling their houses. What if there is a natural disaster? I live in San Diego and I’m sure the recent wildfires have affected the value of many properties. The houses will probably rise up again, but in the meantime people don’t want to feel like they are in danger.

So where will the market go? Who knows? Maybe people will start flipping trailers.

As for me, I think I’ll check out some Trailer Hitches because I definitely can’t afford to flip a house. My last big purchase was an Edge Evolution programmer.

Performance Programmers Increase Horsepower: Edge Evolution & SCT Livewire


California has a unique freeway system.  Drivers have to stop at a traffic light before entering the freeway.  I drive a Toyota Corolla, which means every trip is a near death experience as I merge into a line of speeding trucks.  I bought a performance chip and now I don’t need to bring a change of underwear on my morning commute.
I recently moved to California from the east coast.  Although I love the climate change and abundance of beautiful beach babes, I’m not too thrilled about California’s unique freeway system.  I can still remember my first experience like it was yesterday; actually it was last week.  I had just gotten to California and was headed to the beach to go surfing.  So I’m cruising on the 8, about to get onto the 15. I look down at my map to check what exit I want to get off at. I glance back up to see red; the brake lights of cars stopped in front of me.  Thank god for ABS.  I slammed my brakes and stopped just in time to avoid crashing into a Ford F150.  “Great, now I’m going to sit in traffic all day,” I thought.  As the line of cars slowly crept forward I could see a light in the distance.  Is that a police car? Maybe, it’s an ambulance? When I got closer I could see that the light was actually a traffic light.  This was the first time I have ever seen a traffic light on a freeway entrance.  I finally reached the light, which turned green for two seconds, and hit the gas.  I was giving my Corolla full throttle, but it wasn’t speeding up quick enough.  Looking in my rear view mirror, I could see the driver of the BMW behind me mouthing curses.  The lane started to approach the highway and I wasn’t going nearly as fast as the flow of traffic.  Apparently, California drivers have lead-foot syndrome.  My lane was merging and truck in the lane next to me that was going at least 30mphs faster than me had to slam on his brakes.  The driver thought it wouldn’t be enough to just curse, so I had a great view of his middle finger when he switched lanes and blew past me.  Now I’m not a slow driver, but let’s face it, a Corolla isn’t a race car.  I ended up making it to the beach in one piece, but I needed to find a solution if I was going to be taking the freeway to work everyday.

I talked to my brother-in-law, who is a mechanic, about my problem.  Basically, he gave me two options.  I could either buy a new car or make my car faster.  I definitely was not ready to buy a new car, especially with all my moving bills.  And the last thing I wanted was to be driving around a “rice rocket” or anything that looked like it came from the Fast and the Furious. He suggested adding a performance chip.  He had installed a few recently and said that they fine-tune your engine to increase performance.  The result is a boost in horsepower, which means some lickety-split acceleration for me.

My brother-in-law suggested getting an Edge Evolution or SCT livewire performance programmer.  I ending up going with the Edge Evolution and have seen a big improvement in my car’s pick up.  Phew!  Eat my dust trucks…Or at least don’t run me over.
