New turbo core assemblies from BorgWarner

BorgWarner Turbo Systems Aftermarket introduces replacement core assemblies for high performance turbocharger applications.   The AirWerks® SX-E super core is a complete turbo, less the turbine housing. The chief advantage of the new program is that, as more advanced technology is developed, the latest turbo upgrades become available without having to replace the turbine housing, which is the most expensive part. New part numbers are purpose-engineered for both diesel and gasoline high performance applications and are available in S200 and S300 frame sizes.   SX-E cores contain the following new features: -360 degree thrust bearing (S300SX-E only) -Compressor cover integrated speed sensor port and pre-machined boost port -Flexible compressor cover outlet options (S300SX-E only) -Forged-milled compressor wheels with extended tip technology -Optimized compressor stage aerodynamics -Interchangeable with existing turbine housings for upgradability   For further details contact your BorgWarner Regional Sales Manager for additional details   1849 Brevard Road, Arden, NC 28704...

The 30-3813 Coyote wiring harness connects to the Coyote’s factory engine wiring harness for quick and easy installation of an Infinity-8 standalone programmable EFI unit (PN 30-7101) onto a Coyote race engine. DELIVERS COMPLETE TUNING CONTROL FOR THE COYOTE The Infinity ECU for the Ford Coyote engine has been used successfully in racing since its release a year ago, including on JPC Racing’s 2x record-setting Coyote Turbo drag car. It delivers complete tuning control including Ti-VCT variable cam timing (four cams), Drive-by-Wire (plug included on harness for quick integration of the Ford Drive-by-Wire pedal assembly), active CAN controls, dual on-board Lambda AFR control, dual-knock control and speed-density fueling to eliminate the MAF. A base map is available for the Coyote for quick start up. A robust fuse and relay panel is integrated into the 30-3813 Coyote harness adapter. It includes relays for the radiator fan, coils, injectors, Infinity ECU, starter and fuel pump, and flying leads for starter, ECU controlled fuel pump, clutch-switch activated starter safety lockout, ignition switch and tachometer. CANbus support is included for the Electronic Power Assist Steering (EPAS) when using the Ford Racing M-3200-EPAS Boss 302R electronic steering rack, with minor additional wiring.

Engine Masters Challenge and Kaase’s bold proposition for 2016

Engine Masters Challenge and Kaase’s bold proposition for 2016

By Alfie Bilk: Winder Georgia: Jon Kaase, winner of Thursday’s Vintage class in this year’s Engine Masters Challenge at the University of Northwestern  Ohio in Lima, has proposed that the perennial three top performing teams, Bischoff Engine Services, School of Automotive Machinists and Jon Kaase Racing Engines, should be sequestered in the same class and all three should compete using the same engine make and model. In so doing, engine shops could enter the contest without butting heads with them—unless they wanted to—and “to make it more interesting,” said Kaase, “we should consider selecting an engine that’s unknown to us—maybe a Flathead V8 or a Buick or similar.” In this year’s EMC, rules had been dramatically altered to the delight of some and the disquiet of others. In the changes, the Challenge had been elevated from a one-class contest, where winner took all, to include five classes—one for each day of competition. Accordingly, Monday was devoted to the Mopar Hemi; Tuesday, Spec Small-Block; Wednesday, GM LS; Thursday, Vintage; and Friday, Big-block. Needless to say, the advantage of the new rules soon became obvious: about half of the competitors entered were rewarded with money—$12,000 and $3,000 for each winner and each runner-up respectively. Also, peak horsepower and peak torque were worth a further $2,000; that is $1,000 for each category. In addition, with the increased number of winning engines as well as their broad diversity, the magazines could run significantly more feature articles about them than in the past. Hemi Mopar: Monday Bischoff Engine Services of Guildford, Indiana, won the Hemi class, which consisted of two late-model Hemis and two 426 Hemis....

Performance fix for mild-mannered engines

Performance fix for mild-mannered engines

By Sam Logan: Grand Rapids, Michigan – TorqStorm’s new billet aluminum centrifugal supercharger is not designed for racing use. Instead its purpose is to increase a stock engine’s power output by an average of 40 percent. Presented with a life-time warranty, its gearbox and bearing housing are constructed of 6061-T6 billet aluminum alloy. It functions by blowing through a fuel-injection throttle body or carburetor. Engineered and supplied in convenient engine kits, these include a blow-through bonnet and the plumbing materials that connect it to the supercharger as well as all necessary mounting hardware. Neither fuel system plumbing nor carburetor or throttle body is included. Flowing sufficient air to support 700+hp, the TorqStorm unit employs ceramic bearings, tool steel straight-cut gears and a billet compressor wheel in the style of a turbo impeller. An adjustable belt tensioner is also included as is a useful V-band clamping arrangement that allows rotation of the cast aluminum compressor cover and thus easy routing of the boosted air to the bonnet or intercooler. Available in natural alloy or black anodized or with a micro-polished finish, TorqStorm charger kits feature their own self-contained oil supply further simplifying installation and eliminating the need for oil feed lines. Finally, TorqStorm provides a vacuum-controlled blow-off valve, which serves a dual purpose. First, it only allows boost to occur above light throttle; that is when vacuum falls to a preset level. It also releases excessive boost pressures, which prevents damage to the system when the throttle suddenly closes on deceleration. Prices start at $2,800 For more information contact: TorqStorm 3001 Madison SE, Wyoming, Michigan 49548 Telephone (616) 706-5580 or...
