Get More MPG Out Of Your Diesel
Banks Power has come up with a new-generation diesel tuner that's aimed squarely at helping to take some of the sting out of today's sky-high diesel prices. Working in concert with Banks' free-breathing Ram-Air intake systems and Monster exhausts, the EconoMind can deliver fuel mileage gains as high as 20-percent. Even though the Banks EconoMind tuner was designed to provide fuel economy first and foremost, that doesn't mean its users will ever have to take a back seat in over-the-road performance.

Stop Your Big Toy
The brakes on the new Tundra are very good; in fact, they stop the truck from 60 to 0 in 131 feet. The factory built 13.9-inch rotors and dual-piston calipers for the truck, but there is something you can install to shorten the stopping distance even more. A performance set of brake pads like the ones from Hawk feature specific friction materials to increase stopping power for your needs. For the Tundra, Hawk Performance offers pads in its LTS Ferro-carbon friction compound, Performance Ceramic, and Ferro-carbon, severe-duty SuperDuty compound. Contact Hawk to see which pads will work best for you and your Tundra.

Uninterrupted Air Flow
Wilson has expanded its throttle body range to include new flanged high-performance single-bore units for forced-induction EFI engines. The flanged mouth of the throttle body is counter-bored to accept a machined aluminum mating ring. The mating ring is secured to the throttle body by a V-clamp. The other end of the mating ring is counter-bored to accept a 4-inch-od alloy tube, which can be welded to the mating ring. The result is a smooth, tubular, pressurized air passage from the intercooler to the throttle body-no steps, no restrictions, no hose clips.

Classic Rims
Stockton Wheel's 36-series wheel is exactly like the original Ford wheel and is built in a variety of sizes from 15x5 to 17x9 in 5 on 4.5, 5 on 4.75, and 5 on 5.5 bolt patterns. The 36-series wheel comes in either a chromed or powdercoated finish or in raw steel so you can paint and match to your truck. If you want to finish off your wheel with some chrome, the company also stocks the original polished stainless steel Ford hubcap with the correct ribs and V-8 logo in the center. Additionally, Stockton Wheel replicates the original polished stainless steel trim rings in up to 17-inch-diameter sizes and offers them in a smooth or ribbed style.
