AEM has released its Infinity-6 (30-7106) and -8h (PN 30-7108) ECUs and Plug & Play Adapter Harness (PN 30-3515) for 1989-’98 Nissan RB26DETT engines from the Skyline GT-R and (PN 30-3517) for 1994-’96 Nissan SR20DET engines from the Silvia. When combined with AEM’s Plug & Play Adapter Harness, the Infinity completely replaces the factory Nissan ECU and can be quickly installed when using the factory sensors (MAP and AIT sensor required and sold separately). A base map for the engine is included.
Supports OEM Cam Angle Sensor
The AEM Infinity ECU supports the Nissan’s OEM Cam Angle Sensor (CAS) ‘360 Degree’ pattern. The base calibration is pre-configured for the OEM CAS. The Infinity ECU can be reconfigured via the Setup Wizard to properly read the 12 crank/1 cam timing pattern on engines using an AEM CAS trigger disk.
Supports Factory VTC
The Infinity ECU supports the factory Nissan Valve Timing Control (N-VCT) system.
Speed Density Fueling Control
The Infinity ECU does not support the factory Mass Airflow (MAF) sensor. A MAP sensor and an Air Inlet Temperature (AIT) sensor are required. AEM offers an auxiliary MAP/AIT sensor adapter harness (PN 30-3510-00, sold separately) for seamless integration that provides speed density fueling control and allows users to eliminate the factory MAF sensor.
Closed-Loop Wideband Feedback Control
The Infinity ECU includes an on-board UEGO wideband air/fuel ratio (AFR) controller. A Bosch 4.2LSU UEGO sensor (PN 30-2001) is sold separately and an Infinity wideband extension cable (PN 30-3600, sold separately) is recommended.
Plug & Play Harness with Expansion Port
AEM’s sealed, weatherproof Plug & Play harness for the Nissan RB26DETT (PN 30-3515) and SR20DET (PN 30-3517) includes an AEMnet port for communication with other AEMnet enabled devices.
An expansion port with a weatherproof 12-pin connector is included in the Plug & Play Adapter Harness for adding common aftermarket sensors including fuel pressure and ethanol content. The expansion port also includes a sensor ground, 5v reference, power from relay and switched inputs for boost target, no-lift shift, etc.
Signal Conditioner for ATTESA AWD System on R34 Skylines
The Infinity has a signal conditioner that ensures proper operation of the AWD system on R34 Skylines.

The Password:JDM Dry Carbon Fiber Gurney Flap / Wickerbill is a short lip that protrudes upward from the upper trailing edge of the 2013+ Civic Si 4DR’s factory wing. It’s used to enhance the wing’s downforce characteristics by separating the airflow on the back side of the wing, primarily that which comes over the top of the wing. The result creates a localized high pressure zone on the top side of the wing generating downforce.
When used in conjunction with a functional front splitter / canards, you will be able to enhance the overall aerodynamic characteristics of your 2013+ Civic Si 4DR.

The AWE Tuning 991TT Intercoolers leverage generations of Porsche Intercooler engineering, dating back to the 996. Cast end tanks designed in-house using sophisticated CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software, specially designed cores, power testing and dyno-fueled refinement, and more.
Goals set, torture testing executed, Porsche 991TT Performance Intercooler Kit born.
More Volume. More Fins. More Cooling. More Performance.
Compared to the 991’s stock intercoolers, the AWE Tuning Porsche 991TT Performance Intercoolers’ cores are 17% larger (523 cubic inches vs 448 cubic inches). In contrast to the stock cores, AWE Tuning Porsche 991TT Performance Intercoolers are a high flow bar and plate style, and are built to our charge row and fin count specifications. These specifications result in 20% reduced air temperatures and 50% improved pressure resistance through the cores. These lowered air temperatures and freer flow allowed the AWE Tuning Porsche 991 Turbo S to achieve dyno-verified max gains of 26 HP and 21 ft-lbs of torque at the crank when used with the AWE Tuning 991 Turbo Performance Exhaust and S-FLO Carbon Intake, and G.I.A.C Stage 2 Software, translating to almost a full second reduction in 60-130mph acceleration times.
More Carbon Fiber.
We’ve designed the biggest cores the 991TT rear fenders could fit, and as a result of the size difference, the OEM ducts couldn’t be utilized. To feed fresh, cooler air to the intercooler cores, proper flowing ducts are mandatory. Cue AWE Tuning Carbon Fiber ducts. The result: straightforward and bolt-in, seamlessly mating to the AWE Tuning Performance Intercoolers. No trimming or cutting necessary and the AWE Tuning Fitment Guarantee.
In addition to the superior core and end tank design, the AWE Tuning Porsche 991TT Performance Intercooler Kit also features thick wall 6-ply silicone hoses with gentle curves to prevent bursting under pressure. They are attached to the factory intake and turbos by stainless steel high force t-bolt clamps, and a molded lip is integrated where the hoses meet the turbos to duplicate the factory locking mechanism. Further, our hoses use a Nomex braiding, instead of more common polyester, for superior strength. The very best materials and industry leading engineering separate this kit from all others on the market.
Whether you’re simply running enhanced software, or planning on a larger turbo upgrade for your car, the AWE Tuning Porsche 991TT Performance Intercoolers are exactly what you need to deliver proven, consistent power.

The VA series 2015 Subaru WRX is quite a departure from the previous generation Subaru WRX. The Impreza name has been dropped completely in all markets and the WRX body has taken on a more distinguished look from the standard Subaru Impreza. Most significantly changed from the outgoing 2014 WRX is the all-new 2.0L FA20DIT direct injection boxer engine and twin-scroll turbocharger. The VA series 2015 Subaru WRX is the first WRX to move away from the EJ-series engine. Drivability of the WRX has been improved thanks to the twin-scroll turbo which helps peak torque numbers come on twice as soon and makes slightly more horsepower than the 2.5L EJ engine. Also new for the 2015 WRX is a standard 6-speed manual transmission previously only available to those who stepped up to the WRX STi. This combination of the new 2.0L FA series engine, and the six-speed manual transmission, provides the 2015 Subaru WRX owner with a much different driving experience than the car it replaces.
In just its first year in production the 2015 Subaru WRX 2.0L FA20DIT has become a popular platform for tuners and aftermarket upgrades. K&N has added its expertise in performance air intake systems to the must have list of bolt-on modifications for 2015 Subaru WRX 2.0L models. The K&N 2015 WRX 2.0L intake, number 69-8006TTK, is both aesthetically pleasing and highly functional. K&N dyno testing shows that performance air intake 69-8006TTK produced an estimated gain of 9.16 horsepower at 4,800 RPM with an incredible estimated increase of 18.01 lb-ft of torque at a low, and commonly used, 3,100 RPM. These numbers represent peak estimated power gains. Significant power gains were witnessed across the entire RPM range which aids in improving the driving experience for during daily driving or a day at the race track.
The K&N air intake for the 2015 Subaru WRX 2.0L positions the reusable K&N high-flow air filter in a location near the front of the car to help pull fresh air into the engine by utilizing the factory cold air ducting for superior airflow and superior performance. Bringing in cooler outside air can result in more power. The K&N RU-4960 over-sized reusable air filter is fitted to the inlet of a mandrel-bent aluminum short ram air intake tube. This K&N aluminum intake tube is protected by a flat black powder coat finish chosen in order to blend with original equipment parts under the hood of 2015 Subaru WRX 2.0L models. An application specific black powder coated air filter heat shield is included in the K&N air intake system for the 2015 WRX which helps deflect engine heat away from incoming fresh air.
The K&N 69-8006TTK performance air intake system is an easy to install performance upgrade for 2015 Subaru WRX 2.0L FA20DIT H4 models. By following K&N’s simple step-by-step instructions, owners of 2015 WRX models can experience more power and better acceleration in about 90 minutes or less using basic hand tools. The K&N 2015 WRX 2.0L turbo air intake system 69-8006TTK maintains all necessary factory connections and does not require additional modifications to experience a boost in performance. K&N backs its air filters and air intake systems with a 10-year/million mile limited warranty so Subaru WRX owners can rest assured knowing that their air intake upgrade will provide improved performance for years to come.
K&N Typhoon Air Intake System 69-8006TTK is guaranteed to provide an increase in horsepower and torque on the 2015 Subaru WRX 2.0L FA20DIT H4 models.

Now available for pre-order, HKS has revised the popular FR-S/BRZ Supercharger Kit to make even more power. The V3 Supercharger kit features a revised inlet pipe with a larger inside diameter than the previous version. The restrictor plate has also been removed, as well as a larger supercharger pulley.
These changes optimize the airflow into the supercharger, allowing a slower spinning, but more efficient airflow. The reduction in supercharger speed, along with the less restrictive air flow, allows for a larger volume of air and cooler intake temperatures than before, creating more power than previous variations of the kit. In addition, the V3 Supercharger is available with an optional Flash Editor with pre-programmed tunes for 91 octane and E85. A 93 octane calibration is also available exclusively through HKS USA and participating HKS USA Pro-Dealers.
