Screen shot 2013-06-03 at 9.14When you put the pedal to the floor, a number of things happen. The most direct result is the opening of the engine’s throttle body, which allows large quantities of air to enter the combustion chamber. On the extreme end of performance, some cars have throttle bodies for each cylinder but most vehicles use only one. Thus, making sure you are getting the highest performance out of your engine can often mean investing in a high-quality throttle body. For the absolute best, turn to BBK.

However, if you are working on a project car or simply looking for more power and reliability from your ride, upgrade your alternator with a unit from Powermaster.

Screen shot 2013-05-21 at 7.54Many aftermarket kits focus on moving maximum oxygen into the engine. Air filters, superchargers, turbochargers, cylinder bores, etc. all aid in providing as much H2O as possible. These systems certainly are critical, but making sure your engine is able to remove increased exhaust gas is just as important. Even with a standard engine, many factory headers are unable to efficiently handle exhaust at high RPMs. This can lead to spent gasses remaining in cylinder chambers, decreased performance and increased engine strain. To alleviate these issues, turn to Hedman Hedders.

Screen shot 2013-05-19 at 10.26While it may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of suspension, the engine is a key part of your vehicle’s chassis. Making sure that it is firmly mounted is critical for both straight line speed and overall handling. A solid engine mount can ensure rigidity, safety and greater performance. For one of our very own project Mustangs on Motorz, we used engine mounts from Energy Suspension.

Screen shot 2013-05-15 at 10.40One of the most frustrating parts of any big project is coming across components that can’t be disconnected with the tools you have. Often these components were fastened using specialty methods from the factory. Unfortunately many of these specialty tools are not available on the market.

Race Ramps Mustang MotorzWhether it’s to perform maintenance on a lift or to show your ride off on a display stand, getting your vehicle off the ground can be a considerable challenge. While there are ramps available on the market, few of them take into account low profile, ground kissing sports cars. By using a ramp that’s too steep, damage to bumpers and wheels can easily occur. Avoid all the risk by using the innovative solution from Race Ramps.

Motorz TV Birthday Cake

On May 9, 2008, we published the very first episode of Motorz (which started out as “Truckblog TV”) and now, five years and a total of 74 episodes later, we are still going strong. Our distribution has never been wider, our fan base has never been more loyal, our sponsors have never been more abundant and supportive, and our production quality has never been higher!

As we turn the corner down the road to our 6th year and 6th season, we have some great changes in store for you. We are beginning to film 12 new exciting episodes for S06 and you will see several changes to the show. I can’t give out any details yet, but we are all very excited about the changes and I know you will love them too!

I’d like to personally thank everyone for 5 wonderful years of Automotive Improvement® — the Motorz crew, fans, sponsors, my family and friends. None of this is possible without you, and I simply cannot thank you enough.

Chris
