Diablosport Press Release – New inTune i2 Provides High Tech Horsepower

August 27th, 2015 by Matt Gold

Diablosport inTune2
Within minutes you could add 15+ Horsepower and 20+ torque no tools required!

If you’re a horsepower junky and you need a fix, look no further. Whether you’ve got a Mustang, F150, or even a 3.5L Ecoboost in your driveway, DiabloSport’s inTune i2 Performance Programmer is an easy way to boost your car or trucks power without even popping the hood

When Performance Matters Most.
If you’re a horsepower junky and you need a fix, look no further. DiabloSport’s number one goal is to make it easy to upgrade vehicle performance with their new inTune i2 performance tuner. It’s an easy way to boost your car or trucks power without even popping the hood! If you’ve ever wished you could buy a performance upgrade that makes the throttle more responsive, optimizes shift patterns, or even adds some bottom-end horsepower, you’re in luck- the i2 tuner is loaded with cutting edge performance programs and vehicle adjustments that optimize performance.

Hardware Horsepower.
No one wants to wait around when it’s time to go fast- so DiabloSport engineered the i2 with some serious hardware horsepower too! Running the latest generation of Sitara ARM processors and 2gb of ram, the programmers interface runs at screaming speeds. The unit’s display is a full color 2.8” resistive touch screen perfect for use even with grease covered hands.

Finally, a tuner anyone can use.
Sometimes the latest vehicle technology can be tricky- heck, sometimes there are so many buttons, knobs and levers in our vehicles that don’t even know what they do! With that in mind, DiabloSport developed a new mode on the i2 tuner called “Easy Tune” which takes the guess work out of installing your performance tune. Easy tune prompts the user to select the type of gas they’re running, asks if they want to remove their speed limiter, or change tire size, and installs the tune in minutes. No more choosing from a long list of options!

Updates. Anywhere.
Update your i2 software on virtually any computer- Mac, Windows, Linux, or you can even update it via Wi-Fi! Software update speeds have been boosted from the original inTune as well- the average update time for an i2 is about 5 minutes.

A window into your ride’s soul.
The i2 retrieves diagnostic data from a vehicle via its OBD-II Connection. Check and clear diagnostic trouble codes, or record key performance data parameters to use during your tune tweaking process! Using the 5 Volt dual band analog input, you can also hook up your favorite analog sensors to your i2 for and even more detailed read out of how your vehicles tune is performing. Export all of your data to a PC and play it back on DiabloSport’s Data Viewer logging software.

Turbosmart Press Release – NEW Blow-Off Valve Kit For Nissan GT-R R35!

August 25th, 2015 by Ernest Lo

Turbosmart_TS-0215-1027

As turbocharged performance cars go, the Nissan GT-R is a legendary giant-killer. The R35’s twin-turbo VR38 V6 offers exotic-beating levels of performance in a much more accessible package. Turbosmart has developed a range of products specifically for the R35 GT-R, and our commitment to this legendary nameplate continues with our latest Smart Port blow-off valve.

The Smart Port is a revolutionary BOV design. The Smart Port’s drive-by-wire friendly staging technology works with the vehicle’s standard mapping to maximise the performance of the valve to deliver the best results for the car, giving you the response of a plumb-back valve, with the high performance benefits of a vent-to-atmosphere valve – a welcome improvement in a vehicle with such massive performance out of the box.

The Smart Port’s piston is made from aerospace alloy with a military-spec coating, reducing its weight and friction, resulting in improved valve response and durability. With faster response and better sealing, the Smart Port allows quicker spool-up and better performance on the drive-by-wire GT-R, while reducing damaging compressor surge.

For more information on this BOV kit, check out Turbosmart.

AEM Press Release – Ford Coyote Engine Harness Adapter for Installing Infinity ECU on Coyote Race Engines Using the Factory Engine Harness

August 24th, 2015 by Matt Gold

AEM 30-3813 Harness
AEM Performance Electronics has released a “Controls Pack” style harness adapter for Ford Coyote 5.0L race engines. The 30-3813 Coyote wiring harness connects to the Coyote’s factory engine wiring harness for quick and easy installation of an Infinity-8 standalone programmable EFI unit onto a Coyote race engine.

DELIVERS COMPLETE TUNING CONTROL FOR THE COYOTE
The Infinity ECU for the Ford Coyote engine has been used successfully in racing since its release a year ago, including on JPC Racing’s 2x record-setting Coyote Turbo drag car that set a new record after switching to the Infinity its first time out. It delivers complete tuning control including Ti-VCT variable cam timing (four cams), Drive-by-Wire (plug included on harness for quick integration of the Ford Drive-by-Wire pedal assembly), active CAN controls, dual on-board Lambda AFR control, dual knock control and speed density fueling to eliminate the MAF. A base map is available for the Coyote for quick start up.

A robust fuse and relay panel is integrated into the 30-3813 Coyote harness adapter. It includes relays for the radiator fan, coils, injectors, Infinity ECU, starter and fuel pump, and flying leads for starter, ECU controlled fuel pump, clutch-switch activated starter safety lockout, ignition switch and tachometer. CANbus support is included for the Electronic Power Assist Steering (EPAS) when using the Ford Racing M-3200-EPAS Boss 302R electronic steering rack, with minor additional wiring.

REQUIRED ITEMS
Two Bosch 4.2LSU sensors are required for Lambda feedback control (PN 30-2001). A MAP sensor (PN 30-2130-50 3.5BAR) and air inlet temp (AIT) sensor (PN 30-2010 3/8″ NPT) is required for conversion to speed density. MAF is not supported. AEM offers higher pressure MAP sensors for high boost applications.

AEM recommends the purchase of its Infinity Auxiliary Sub Harness (PN 30-3510-00) for easy installation of the MAP and AIT. This sub harness connects to the DTM-style 12-pin connector for adding common aftermarket sensors including fuel pressure, oil pressure, boost control solenoid and ethanol content. The expansion port also includes a sensor ground, 5v reference, power from relay and high side output for activating a solenoid, and switched inputs for auxiliary radiator fan, boost target and no-lift shift.

The 30-3813 Coyote wiring harness includes a connector to enable control of the Ford Racing Boss 302 Alternator Kit (Ford PN M-8600-M50BALT). Users who do not have this alternator may need to purchase it for proper connection.

The Drive-by Wire pedal assembly is not included with the 30-3813 Coyote wiring harness. For Drive-by-Wire integration the Ford pedal assembly (Ford PN BR3Z-95836-D) is required.

The Infinity ECU makes state-of-the-art ECU technology affordable for both professional teams and amateur racers. Built around a latest-generation 32 bit floating point 200MHz automotive processor and Real Time Operating System (RTOS), the Infinity is capable of processing 400 MIPS (millions of instructions per second). To our knowledge, the Infinity ECU currently has the fastest processing speed of any aftermarket Motorsports ECU available. This processing speed combined with a RTOS provides more accurate ignition timing for increased power, more responsiveness to truly custom tailor the driving experience to the driver, allows the Infinity to perform more computational features without a sacrifice in processing performance, and enables tuning of features and sub strategies without affecting other features and sub strategies. It allows you to do more, faster, in a more stable programming environment.

K&N Press Release – K&N Gives 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, Charger Hellcat Owners a Boost They Crave

August 21st, 2015 by Ernest Lo

K&N_69-2550TTK

When the Street & Racing Technology (SRT) high-performance automobile group within the Chrysler Corporation announced the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat they must have been greeted with a moment’s worth of resounding silence before the crowd uttered a single “Wow!” An unprecedented 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, as well as a top track speed of 199 MPH, made the 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat the most powerful muscle car to date. Apparently there must have been an outcry from more than one performance minded family guy as shortly thereafter a 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat was announced. 707 horsepower, and the ability to comfortably seat 5 people, make the Charger Hellcat the most powerful, quickest and fastest mass production sedan ever.

Speed junkies are never satisfied. Even with a rated 707 horsepower Hellcat owners are screaming for more power. A K&N® performance air intake system will give 2015 Challenger Hellcat and Charger Hellcat owners exactly what they crave. After establishing baseline power readings, the K&N Hellcat air intake, number 69-2550TTK, was installed on an otherwise stock 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat 6.2L supercharged engine and dyno tested in-house by K&N filters. The results were an astounding estimated additional 38.95 horsepower and 21.01 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels of an already outrageous car.

This kind of performance from a simple bolt-on K&N air intake system may seem hard to believe. However, the concept behind a K&N air intake system is simple. Replacing the obviously restrictive factory induction system with a black powder coated free-flowing mandrel-bent aluminum air intake tube coupled to a high-flow K&N air filter allows the 6.2L supercharged Hellcat engine to breathe easier. A combination of reduced intake tract restriction, straighter airflow, and an application specific air filter heat shield add up to massive gains in horsepower and torque for 2015 Hellcat models.

K&N backs the 69-2550TTK 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat and 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat air intake with a 10-year/million mile limited warranty. Significant testing goes into developing a K&N air intake system, so for those 2015 Dodge Hellcat owners looking to the step up to the next level of performance or just wow their friends, look no further than the 69-2550TTK Typhoon® air intake system.

K&N Typhoon short ram intake, number 69-2550TTK, is designed to provide a guaranteed increase in performance for the 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat and 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat models.

For more information on this intake, check out K&N.
