Voodoo13 Press Release – 350z Rear Traction Rods Now Available

May 19th, 2016 by Ernest Lo


Voodoo13 adjustable rear traction rods replace the OE arms which use rubber bushings which over time wear out and can adversely affect toe change under extreme acceleration and braking. The bumpsteer curve can be adjusted by changing the length of the traction rods.

Precision CNC machined adjusting rod from high strength 6061-T6 aluminum coated in MIL-A-8625 Type III Hard Anodize, CNC laser cut and bent steel brackets with TIG welded construction and stainless steel CNC’d spacers are used to ensure they will withstand abuse from street cars and track cars.

We use QA1 XM Chromoly Steel heim joints that are heat treated for strength and durability. The spherical rod end is self-sealing and self-lubricated because of their Nylon/PTFE injection molded race that keeps out dirt and debris.  Note: the 7/8″ heim used in this particular application may make noise when switching from the OE traction rod which uses a rubber bushing.

AEM Press Release – 2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost Gains Horsepower and Torque with AEM Charge Pipe Kit

May 18th, 2016 by Ernest Lo


The Ford Mustang is the quintessential pony car. 50 years after its inception, the Mustang is still charging strong, and with a complete redesign in 2015, there are no signs of taming this wild stallion. The 2015 Mustang comes with long-awaited independent rear suspension and, for the first time since around when Ronald Reagan was President, a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. This new 2.3 liter Ecoboost, however, is far from the atrocity of the last turbo-go-round in a Mustang. It’s quite brilliant, actually, with direct injection and a twin-scroll turbocharger producing 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque at the crank. This Ecoboost is just itching to make more power and with an AEM 26-3001C charge pipe kit, more horsepower and torque are guaranteed to be available under your right foot.

The 26-3001C is an easy to install performance upgrade for the 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3 liter Ecoboost. It comes with two charge pipes – hot side and cold side. The charge pipes are mandrel-bent, made from lightweight aluminum and help to streamline airflow from the turbocharger to the intercooler, as well as from the intercooler to the throttle body. Reinforced hoses connect the charge pipes to the turbocharger, intercooler and throttle body and are secured with blank zinc-plated hose clamps for a sleek aesthetic that complements the durable gunmetal grey powdercoating on the charge pipes.

The hot charge pipe features a precision machined fitting that accommodates the factory BOV (blow-off valve). A rather unique feature of the cold charge pipe are its two provisions for 1/8” NPT ports for you to optionally add either a water-methanol or a nitrous oxide injection system along with a temperature/boost sensor probe for these modifications. Seldom do aftermarket charge pipe kits provide such accommodations. Water-methanol is very popular in high-boost-pressure turbocharged builds to help reduce inlet air temperatures (IATs) and help prevent engine knock. This allows for higher boost pressures to make even more power. 1/8” NPT plugs are provided should you not install a water-methanol or nitrous oxide system, or the sensors for those systems.

Remember we said the Ecoboost is itching to make more power? Let’s head to the dyno. When equipped with the 26-3001C charge pipe kit and 21-740C cold air intake system, a 2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost produced an estimated additional 19 horsepower and 18 pound-feet of torque at 5500rpm over a completely stock vehicle. Those power gains are to the wheels and are definitely noticeable when driving the vehicle.

The 26-3001C can be installed in about 90 minutes or less with basic hand tools and comes with step-by-step installation instructions. It’s also backed by AEM’s Lifetime Limited Warranty so you can feel confident it will withstand some true pony car power. Unleash some turbocharged ponies under the hood with the 26-3001C charge pipe kit and 21-740C cold air intake. Order yours today!
