Truck Torque: Adding a Cam for Muscle Where it Counts
The LS engine remains the darling of the performance world, but does that mean all LS owners are looking for the same thing when it comes time for upgrades? Obviously not, or every LS story would be about adding a cam, springs and a turbo, but such is not the case. While some may be

Hybrid 6.0/6.4L Power Stroke Short Block Build
In most racing circles, hearing the phrase “there is no replacement for displacement” at some point is fairly common. And, in most cases, the adage rings true. Increasing cubic inches is a great way to add power and performance to a race engine. When properly built, Ford’s 6.0L Power Stroke is actually a good platform

OEM Audio Plus Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro Audio System Upgrade
It’s no secret that auto manufacturers are working to put aftermarket audio companies out of business, whether intentional or not. With systems like Ram’s 12-inch Uconnect and 19-speaker, 900-watt, Harmon Kardon offering, there’s little more that could be desired. And nearly every manufacturer offers a large touchscreen infotainment system that just a few years ago

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Gets A ProCharger P-1SC-1 and 550 Wheel Horsepower!
If you’ve been in the truck scene long enough, it’s of no surprise that the popularity of SUV’s has only grown stronger. Late-model SUVs are not only safer to drive than their predecessors, but many can pack a serious punch in stock trim right from the factory. That said, the affinity towards these people haulers

Volant Performance Intake Kit Install
One of the first modifications many pickup owners opt for is adding a cold-air intake kit. They are easy to install, relatively inexpensive, and oftentimes provide immediate feedback with a louder growl and slight bump in power. Unfortunately, over the years, many companies have come along to try and cash in on this by offering

For the money, there is no better way to increase your trucks horsepower potential and also instill an increased level of confidence than with a bolt-on cold-air intake (CAI) kit right from the box. They’re easy to install and fit perfectly! Thankfully, the aftermarket has proven itself and CAI kits are flying off the shelves.
