DC SPORTS: Turbo Manifold

DC Sports Turbo Manifolds are the perfect upgrade for customers looking to extract the most power from their factory turbocharged vehicle. Because of the high temperature demands of turbo applications, we use special manufacturing techniques to virtually eliminate the chance of failure, including preparing the plasma cut materials for welding, using a slower weld process and thicker rod for deeper weld penetration and purging the inner tube sections with Argon gas to strengthen the backside of the welds.

Power Slot: Brake Rotors for Sports car, SUV, Truck or Sport compact

Power Slot® Rotors
Power Slot® rotors are 1-piece, slotted, direct replacement discs for your factory brake system and stock calipers. They offer improved cooling as well as other advantages the competition doesn’t offer.

Launched in 1998, Power Slot® was the first premium slotted replacement rotor program in North America. Innovations include e-coating, double-disc grinding, full machining, mill balancing and center-split castings, as well as the availability of directional vanes, cryogenic treatment and the use of Power Alloy. Today, Power Slot® covers more than 2500 applications, all machined in Power Slot’s® California manufacturing center. Every Power Slot® rotor is a direct replacement for a factory brake rotor, allowing the retention of factory calipers in the system.


Power Slots
Power Slot® rotors feature a signature “short slot” design. The slot improves brake system performance by wiping away the debris of used friction material that otherwise accumulates between the rotor and pad. This keeps fresh pad material exposed to the rotor surface and helps prevent pad glazing. The edges sweeping the pad slightly increase the effective coefficient of friction, or “bite,” amplifying brake system response to pedal input. By providing an escape path for water, slotted rotors can also improve initial brake response under wet conditions.

AEM Electronics: Wideband Failsafe Gauge

The Wideband FAILSAFE Gauge provides the ability to accurately tune AFR, while actively protecting your engine by constantly monitoring AFR curves and activating a user-defined failsafe strategy if it runs lean.

The Wideband FAILSAFE Gauge is a Universal Exhaust Gas Oxygen (UEGO—“you-way-go”) controller with an internal boost sensor, an internal data logger and a full color Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display. It includes technology to activate a failsafe strategy in the event AFR falls outside of a user-defined operating window. If the AFR falls outside of the set operating window, the Wideband FAILSAFE Gauge triggers a user defined output function that can save an engine from catastrophic damage.

WHY YOU WANT ONE
This product is a must have for all tuned performance engines, either forced induction or naturally aspirated, fuel injected or carbureted. Any high performance vehicle owners who want a highly accurate AFR tuning tool with logging and a protection strategy that can save an engine from catastrophic failure will want this FAILSAFE device.

WHAT IT DOES
After the engine is tuned and a safe operating window of AFR is established, the Wideband FAILSAFE Gauge continually monitors AFR and boost or vacuum to make sure that AFR does not fall out of the defined operating window at a given boost or vacuum level. If the Wideband Failsafe detects an out of range AFR reading, the gauge triggers a low side output (ground signal with a 1.5 amp draw max) that can save your engine from catastrophic damage.

Use the gauge’s intuitive software to configure the low side output, create a user-adjustable time delay strategy to prevent false alarms, and customize the gauge lighting to flash and alert the driver if an alarm is triggered.

WHY USE A WIDEBAND AIR/FUEL CONTROLLER?
Accurate AFR data is critical when tuning an engine. Running rich (very low air/fuel ratio, excessive fuel) can cause a loss in power and fuel economy, while running too lean (very high air/fuel ratio, not enough fuel) may result in serious engine damage. Using a wideband air/fuel controller during the tuning process allows you to monitor AFR and adjust tuning parameters to optimize them for maximum power and efficiency.

The Wideband FAILSAFE Gauge is an ideal engine tuning tool. The highly accurate Bosch AFR wideband sensor is maintenance free and never requires free-air calibration, enabling you to fine tune AFR from an AEM programmable engine management system, any other programmable EMS or piggyback programmer. For carbureted applications, it can tell you when it’s time to swap carb(s), change jets or simply modify fuel pressure.
