14 n Performance & Hotrod Business n May 2014 SUPERCHARGERS, TURBOS & NITROUS PRODUCT FOCUS: Turbo Insulation Covers Thermo-Tec Automotive Products, Greenwich, Ohio, presents its T3/T4 and T5/T6 Turbo Blankets that feature an easy-fit design for quick installation. The high-quality blankets keep the turbine spooled up and eliminate turbo lag issues. A dual- layer construction design increases horsepower, improves durability, reduces under-hood temperatures and enhances performance by maintaining the temperatures inside the turbo. The kit includes grommets and wiring, and a universal turbo cover that fits all turbo applications including diesel trucks is also available. The following collection of the latest superchargers, turbo and nitrous oxide systems show the types of power-adders available to aftermarket shops. And don't miss Mike Mavrigian's article on the steps to take when building engines for forced induction, beginning on page 52. Nozzle Holder-Check Valve Combo Snow Performance, Woodland Park, Colo., presents its new Nozzle Holder-Check Valve Combo that ensures safe, reliable water-methanol injection. Snow Performance developed its nozzle holder as a more reliable and consistent method to restrict unwanted directional fluid flow in the Boost Cooler water-methanol injection system. Designed to replace the solenoid or external check valve, it has been improved over standard designs with a larger sealing surface for increased reliability and safety and withstands the rigors of higher pump pressures and flow rates. Race Fogger Kits NOS, Bowling Green, Ky., a Holley Performance Products brand, introduces three new Dry Nitrous Kits—a single-stage and two dual-stage kits. NOS dry Pro Race Fogger kits are designed to be used with standalone engine management systems like the Holley Dominator and HP EFI systems that have programmable dry nitrous capability. The systems allow for complete control of the fuel, nitrous and ignition for repeatable results. The kits come with jetting for 175-, 250-, 300- and 350-hp levels, but can support up to 500 hp per stage. LS Series Perimeter Plate Nitrous System ZEX, Memphis, Tenn., a COMP Performance Group member, presents its LS Series Perimeter Plate Nitrous System with three advanced nitrous technologies, each created to give LS applications a significant power advantage over conventional plate systems. Adjustable from 100 to 250 hp, the complete, race- ready system uses three cutting-edge technologies to provide optimum spray efficiency and fuel distribution for both cable and throttle-by-wire engines. It is a direct fit for all 90mm and larger, four-bolt-style throttle body/manifold combinations. PHBMAY.indd 14 4/2/14 11:03 AM
