The new C7 Corvette is one of the most anticipated cars coming out this year. GM’s financial problems kept a new Corvette off the the table, leaving the C6 in production for nine years, long enough that even Chevy’s own Camaro SS was starting to threaten the Corvette’s dominance. Now with nearly a decade of technological advancement to catch up on, the latest ‘Vette is lighter, faster and more fuel efficient.

In 1979, Ford Motor Company introduced a new version of the Mustang. The new “Fox body” Mustang was smaller, and introduced entirely new styling with a lean, angular look. The new styling and numerous performance options created an instant hit for Ford, and by the time the Fox body was retired at the end of the 1993 model year, this was the longest-running Mustang generation ever produced.
Nowadays, these cars are plentiful, inexpensive and have a highly developed aftermarket parts selection, which means that one of these little fireballs can make a great choice for a car project. Whether you are looking for a sport coupe for some autocross fun or want to create a drag strip terror, you can’t go wrong with a Fox body Mustang.

In the commercial driving industry, fuel-economy and exhaust issues are increasingly consequential, especially as gas prices remain high and emission restrictions tighten. The benefits of upgrading a big rig’s exhaust system, therefore, become increasingly attractive. Though the inspiration for integrating better-performing exhaust parts into big rigs is often more oriented toward reducing the environmental impact of fuel consumption and emissions than the average consumer who is interested in beefing up their ride, the focus on these issues means that the commercial driving industry is in a position to lead the way in improving exhaust technology.
Anyone serious about their vehicle understands that to maximize performance it takes more than aftermarket parts. The way cars are built, it is important to program the engine to work more efficiently for your needs and aftermarket parts. Remote tuning is an essential step in this process. Here’s how it works.
What truck has eight mufflers that rotate that solves the ultimate exhaust question: “What does it sound like?” That would be MagnaFlow’s 1949 Chevrolet Truck. And yes, really it does have eight rotating mufflers that rotate to listen to different, exhaust sounds.

Heat is an engine killer. While most drivers will never experience excessively high oil temperatures, those who race or tow heavy loads can experience over-heated oil. Over-heated oil is bad for three reasons:
- As oil is heated above 200 degrees Fahrenheit (and stays at these sustained temps) breakdown of that oil is accelerated.
- As oil is heated above 200, it’s a less effective engine lubricant.
- In addition to lubricating the engine, oil also helps to cool your motor. If the oil is too hot, it’s less effective at cooling the engine because it can’t absorb as much heat.
Enter the oil cooler, which keeps engine oil at an acceptable temperature, helps cool the engine, extends oil life, and reduces engine wear.
If you’ve ever wondered why someone would remove a perfectly good factory-spec exhaust system and replace it with a loud after-market exhaust system, I’ve got three great reasons for you: Read more
