Now, thanks to AMP Research, this large, truck-based SUV can be easily outfitted with arguably the best step assist on the market today. Uniquely designed for Sequoia, the AMP Research Power Step, a full-length running board that automatically lowers when any door opens, then retracts under the rocker panel when the doors close, is now available for this powerful and roomy eight passenger SUV. A weather-tight motor and drive system does all the work in one smooth operation. Safety features include a 600 lb. weight rating per side, and anti-pinch technology that prevents the step from moving if resistance is encountered while in motion. [Read more…]

Morristown, NC – MAHLE, always with its pulse on the race scene, is pleased to now offer a Twisted Wedge PowerPak piston kit. Utilizing the unique chamber and valve angles of a Twisted Wedge head is a relatively easy and affordable way to add up to 100 more horsepower. However, typical small block pistons will not work with this unique head design. That is why MAHLE has developed the Twisted Wedge PowerPak, a complete race ready piston kit that perfectly complements to these unique canted valve heads. The kit comes complete with deburred, dual coated pistons, ultra flat 1.5, 1.5, 3mm low drag rings, high grade German steel wrist pins, and race proven round wire locks.
Designed for sportsman class racing, MAHLE’s Twisted Wedge pistons are forged from high strength MS124 aluminum alloy, recognized for its ability to provide excellent piston and cylinder wall wear characteristics. CNC machined, precision pin fitting for either .927 or .912 high quality wrist pins and forced pin oiling are standard features of the PowerPak, as well as MAHLE’s phosphate and Grafal® piston coatings. The dry film phosphate coating that gives MAHLE pistons their characteristic gray color resists microwelding in the ring grooves and galling in the pin bores. Grafal®, a proprietary compound, is applied only to the piston skirt and improves the piston’s stability while providing for quieter operation and reducing drag. MAHLE’s precision ring grooves when seated with MAHLE’s provided ultra flat rings ensures less parasitic loss and improved ring seal for increased power.
