One for our North American readers …

Hot air isn’t a good thing if you have an engine with a turbo or supercharger. Boost makes horsepower, but it also creates a lot of heat. The more boost, the higher engine temperatures can get. The next thing you know, you’ve got detonation issues and big problems.

A Snow Performance Stage 2.5 Boost Cooler solves that problem by injecting a water/methanol mix into the engine’s air intake. The system’s VC-50 progressive controller uses a MAP sensor to inject the mix in proportion to manifold boost pressure – the higher the pressure, the more water/methanol More >


Webcon now manufactures a heatshield for use on the Weber DCOE and DCO/SP range of carburetors.

With warmer temperatures and the consequent higher under-bonnet temperatures, just around the corner, hot fuel handling issues (especially with modern Ethanol fuels) are likely to become apparent on many carburettor-equipped kit and classic cars.

However, many of the heat-related running issues on Weber 40 and 45 DCOE installations can be easily and quickly reduced by installing these new Webcon Heat Shields. They deflect rising hot air around the body of the carburettor as well as providing an effective insulating air barrier underneath the carburettor.

Beat the discomfort of excessive heat and noise inside your ride is with Design Engineering’s Advanced Thermal Acoustic Coating. ATAC is a sound and heat barrier coating you can spray, roll, or brush on.

It uses ceramic bead micro-sphere technology to successfully dampen noise and vibration while simultaneously reflecting away unwanted heat up to 375 degrees F.

The water-based coating is non-toxic, cleans up easily, and covers up to 75 square feet on vehicle floors, trunks, and firewalls – basically, anywhere you want to reduce heat and sound. ATAC Thermal Acoustic Coating dries quickly to a More >
