Mini Motor Power
One of the most frequently asked questions we get here is "How do I get more power from my four-cylinder S-10?" There is finally a definitive answer to that question thanks to DeKerlegand Turbo Systems. The company makes a complete turbo kit for GM 2.2L engines. This kit will bring a completely stock 2.2L S-10 from mid 18s to low 15s 1/4-mile ETs. Power to the wheels will increase from the stock 100hp rating up to around 200 hp. The kit's boost level is set at 8 psi. However, it is capable of producing around 400 hp to the wheels when combined with a built engine and the fuel and ignition components needed to support boost levels of 20 psi.

Slow That Big Ship
Pickups and SUVs can now enjoy shorter stopping distances, eliminate fade, and have greater wear resistance thanks to The Brake Man's Super Brake kit. Using OEM-style rotors treated with The Brake Man's proprietary thermal process, and brake pads with an exclusive blend of friction materials, The Super Brake Kit results in performance that rivals aftermarket "big" brake systems at a fraction of the cost. During tests, the kit reduced stopping distance by 30 feet during a 40-mph panic stop. That's the difference between just getting scared and calling your insurance company.
