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:

Truck Pal Tailgate LadderThere’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold / And she’s buy-ai-ing a Westin tailgate ladder to heaven. If ever there was a truck bed accessory that inspired generations of teens to suck face behind the school bleachers, it’s this tailgate accessory from Westin. ZoSo!

P.S. We’ve been working on putting together a gaggle of install videos, showing you just how easy it is to bolt raw power onto your ride. Whiiiiiiiieeeeeeee, Whaaaaaaawwwwwwww, Waaaaaaaaaaaaa. That’s a little guitar solo that plays in our head every time we think of automotive horsepower. Squeeeeeeeeeeee, Squaaaaaaaaaaaaa, Doooooooooowaaaaaaaaa. So, check out this trick AutoAnything Airaid Throttle Body Spacer install video, and see what kind of soundtrack your mind comes up with.

Summer Officially Arrives, Bearing the Promise of Tans and Special Savings


Summer Kickback Sale

Wiccans don’t need to be reminded that today’s the summer solstice. Not only are their crystal-clad bodies naturally in tune with Gaia’s shifting phases, but their Twilight calendars also have Crayloa-scrawled pentagrams on today’s box as a reminder. If you’re not a follower of the horned god and moon-drenched goddess and if you don’t have a pentagram-marked Twilight calendar, you at least have us. You’re welcome.

Besides spreading solstice cheer, we’re here with good news: two of the bossest brands in the business, Edge and Injen, are running summer specials.

Edge Accessories

Edge’s sale is twofold. First, we’re reducing our prices on the Juice Attitude, Evolution CS and Evolution CTS. Second, Edge is matching our cut in sales and giving you back cold, hard cash (up to $50) through a rebate when you order one of those programmers between now and August 2, 2010.

Injen Accessories

Injen’s special doesn’t require any math. Simply put: order any Injen air intake system, get a free Hydro Shield while supplies last. So hurry up because supplies will last about as long as a Big Stick at the Puerto Rican Day Parade.

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.

Modern Tuning Makes Maximizing Performance Much Faster


Putting some extra ponies into your daily motoring used to take entire days, cost hundreds of dollars in parts, and usually cause the loss of three or four knuckles. Not so in today’s computer-controlled vehicles, where tuning is about as easy as playing Tetris on a Game Boy. Let’s take a look at performance chips and programmers and how they’ve changed vehicle tuning.

Chances are you’ve seen the Saturday afternoon show geared toward squeezing every droplet of power out of a 50s or 60s classic. You know—the one hosted by two middle-aged guys, one with a toupee that may as well have “this is a toupee” painted on it. They spend the entire half-hour show with a bunch of time-lapsed shots taken of them tearing the engine apart to put in highly-specialized, insanely expensive parts. Once the project’s done, they fire-up the dyno and laud the 3hp gain they received for about 4 hours of total work. If you’re like me, that’s not exactly how you want to spend a weekend, all for 3hp that you may not even notice with your rear-o-meter.

Fortunately, you’re probably also driving a computer-controlled vehicle, like most of the ones sold for the last 25 years or so. That makes tuning much easier, because a set of programming determines the way your engine performs. Replace the programming with a set geared toward performance, and you have near-instant power gains. Don’t get me wrong—there’s a lot to be said for the virtues of a computer-free classic that you have full control over. But, when it comes to getting more power in just a few minutes time without ripping your hands to shreds or spending thousands on obscure parts, a computer-controlled vehicle has a distinct advantage.

How can you make these changes in minutes? With a power programmer or performance chip, like the ones made by Hypertech or Diablosport. These programmers are built to hold performance settings tested by experienced pros for your specific engine. All you have to do is plug it into the OBD-II port beneath your steering column. With simple yes or no commands, you can adjust how you want your engine to perform, upload the new programming, and you’re ready to rock with 25hp or more extra. The maximum time this will take to complete: just 10 minutes.

More Products that could feast the need for speed and ones that I found most promising in power gains are:

catalytic converters
stainless steel brake lines
big brake Kits
afe air filters
dual exhaust
disc brakes
brake controllers
mass air flow sensor
injen

Many drivers who want the extra power are leery of this tuning method. “How can so much power be had so fast, when the TV pros spend hours to get few gains?” they ask. The answer is that automakers down-tune their cars for the masses. Engines are setup to work the same for you, the budding performance enthusiast, as they are for the elderly, who like to travel half the speed limit or through the occasional farmer’s market. You aren’t the average driver, and performance programmers aren’t average settings. It’s a perfect match for you; it’s not a perfect match for your mother.

Some drivers worry about warranty when they’re considering a performance programmer. Not only to the companies that make programmers take safety into account with their settings, they often give you ways to return to stock settings for service visits at the dealership. And, as with all performance mods, you’re protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, a federal law that basically states that your vehicle’s warranty can’t be voided by mods unless the mods can be proven as the source of trouble. In other words, there’s no reason to wait—the true potential is waiting to be unlocked, and you can do it without breaking a sweat.

Maximize your ride with performance chips, available from time-tested brands like a Hypertech programmer and Diablosport.
