SKUNK2: Alpha Valve Spring and Titanium Retainer Kits

Skunk2 is proud to introduce its Alpha Valve Spring and Titanium Retainer Kits for Honda’s B-series VTEC and K-series engines. Each kit includes Skunk2’s high-quality dual valve springs and race-proven titanium retainers that are the result of nearly two decades of racing and engine building experience.

Each Alpha Valve Spring is manufactured exclusively from super-clean, chrome-silicone wire milled in Japan. By using inner and outer springs mated together through a slight interference fit and with differing frequencies, Alpha Valve Springs are able to prevent valve float and maintain valvetrain stability at engine speeds in excess of 10,000 rpm.

Skunk2’s industry-leading Alpha Titanium Retainers are designed to significantly reduce valvetrain mass, resulting in more horsepower and improved valvetrain stability. Similar to Skunk2’s already popular Pro Series Titanium Retainers, Alpha Titanium Retainers feature radius-cut edges for additional rocker arm clearance and reduced weight, strategically positioned lightening grooves, and reduced overall heights for better valve seal clearance and even further weight reduction.

Alpha Titanium Retainers are manufactured using the latest 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) and FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to ensure that each is optimized for strength as well as for reduced weight. Skunk2 engineers then test and prove their designs on the engine dyno as well as the race track. Once approved for manufacturing, only medical-grade titanium that’s been ultrasonically inspected and certified is used. Following CNC machining, each retainer is then individually inspected to ensure proper hole diameter, taper, and that each are free from machining defects to ensure proper installed valve spring heights and pressures. Finally, each retainer is serialized for your protection, including valuable information, like material batch specifics as well as production and inspection dates.

Skunk2 designs, develops, and tests its entire valvetrain lineup in-house to ensure superior quality and maximum performance gains. During development, each valvetrain component is tested both on the dyno and the road, including 11,000 rpm drag racing engines and 17,000 rpm superbikes. Manufactured from the best materials available, Skunk2 valvetrain components provide exceptional performance, reliability, and quality and remain standard-issue on each Skunk2 vehicle that we build and support.

MEGAN RACING: Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2010+ Rear Camber Kit

Wheel alignment is absolutely crucial when modifying your car. Alignment can effect every aspect of your driving experience, from straight line stability, under-steer, over-steer, acceleration, braking and tire wear. Although stock components allow slight alignments from the stock suspension settings, they often are not able to properly align the car after the suspension has been modified. From the factory, most cars are set to have under-steer and for optimum tire wear at stock height; under-steer is often undesired from a performance standpoint but is always dependent on driver style, therefore the adjust-ability of the alignment of a vehicle is critical when tuning for speed. The clock does not lie and having the vehicle alignment can make seconds of a difference.

Megan Racing Inc. has developed reinforced and adjustable control arms to accommodate the needs of the aggressive and performance oriented tuner. Being constructed of a Lightweight Steel-Alloy which is able to withstand the stresses of extreme competition, these arms are powder-coated with a 3-Stage process to ensure durability and protection against the elements.

Megan Racing has now developed camber arms for Genesis Coupe enthusiasts that will help attain a higher level of control and performance. Constructed of a Reinforced Rubber Bushing , these control arms remain light weight while being able to take the punishment of competition and extreme conditions. A 3-Stage powder coating process the control arms will easily combat the elements for years of performance.

SPECIFICATIONS & FEATURES:

-Applications: 2010+ Genesis Coupe

– Made with high-strength and anti-cranking rubber material

APEX-i: Smart Accel Controller

The A’PEXi SMART Accel Controller offers instant and direct throttle response for vehicles equipped with Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Systems. Throttle response that is delayed from ETC or better known as Drive-by-wire throttle is greatly improved with this simple unit and a vehicle specific plug and play harness installation which is connected between the factory accelerator pedal sensor and wiring harness within a few minutes.

PRODUCT FEATURES
[ECO Mode]
There are 3 ECO Mode options. Throttle response time will delay compared to factory throttle simulating the accelerator pedal being pressed gently which can result in fuel economic efficiency due to decreased initial load from the output of the accelerator pedal, in some cases can reduce fuel consumption by up to 10%. The ECO Mode can also be used to desensitize vehicles with abrupt throttle response from the factory, as seen on some vehicles such as the Toyota Tundra Truck.

[Lo-Throttle Mode]
Throttle response will delay from normal mode based upon throttle pedal percentage range. Throttle will react to how the user presses on the pedal between idle-to-full throttle range.

[Boost Mode]
Throttle response time will become quicker and results in improved accelerator pedal feel. Returns to normal mode once pedal is pressed to fully open throttle.

[Hi-Throttle Mode]
Improved throttle response based on throttle percentage range, in this mode throttle will respond as if depressing the pedal in full throttle. Returns to normal mode once pedal is pressed to fully open throttle.

Details:
– Simple and Easy push button switch design
– Full-Color A’PEXi Logo LED Switch in 7 different colors per mode
– Reverse-Gear cancel harness is an added safety feature that is an installation option to revert to factory throttle setting when reversing vehicle
– Requires SMART Accel Controller Vehicle Specific Harness for installation and use (+ $70.00)
– Total Package Price: $269.00 (Controller – $199.00 + Harness – $70.00)

Applications: (vehicle specific harnesses)
***Be sure to cross-reference the vehicle specific harness application guide for your specific vehicle***
