AIRAID Racer Corry Weller Takes Production 1000cc Points Lead at LOORS Arizona

At the mid-point of the season Corry has a firm grip on the Production 1000 cc UTV class

Corry celebrates a 3rd place finish earlier this season. She's now #1 in points in Production 1000

Corry Weller knew as soon as she saw her first short-course race in 2006 that she had found her calling. With the help of her husband Jason and their successful UTV business, Corry began racing short course in 2007 in the highly competitive UTV class, going Pro after only her first few races.

In 2017, the AIRAID-supported driver is pursuing championships in the Arizona Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series in both the Production 1000cc UTV class and a class she and her husband created for drivers to compete as a reasonable cost, SR1.

Corry took a few moments to update AIRAID on her most recent race. Here's what she had to say:

AIRAID: Corry, you had about a month of between rounds 3/4 and 5/6. How did you keep yourself busy?

Corry: We were racing in the Lucas Oil Off Road Series with Jason at the wheel in Ensenada, Mexico.

AIRAID: OK, now you’re back in Arizona for Rounds 5 and 6. We heard the weather was a little tough to deal with. How did you deal with the heat?

CW: We came back for the Lucas Oil Regional Races at Wild Horse Pass, on what would prove to be a very hot weekend. Fortunately, the races were night races, and we would only have to deal with the intense heat for practice and qualifying both days.

AIRAID: So how did qualifying for the Production 1000 cc UTV go?

CW: Our DragonFire Racing YXZ chassis was still dialed from the Lucas Oil Off Road Race, so practice went smoothly for us throughout the afternoon. Qualifying time came around, and we burned off as many solid, mistake-free laps as we could, putting us barely behind 1st place into a 2nd place qualifying time. With the inversion of two, however, I would be on pole and starting the race - the best place to be!

AIRAID: So you’re starting from the pole. What happened during the race?

CW: I was in control of the field coming up to the green flag, and as soon as I passed the start cones I dropped the hammer, and away we all went! My Weller Racing teammate, Paul O’Brien was on my outside, and suddenly swerved just a little into my right front wheel, putting me back just enough to where he got a nose on me going into turn one. From that point on, the chase was on, and I stayed glued to him the entire time, making sure he knew I was right there and pressuring him in every corner.

AIRAID: Were you able to get back around him?

CW: On such a one-lined track, it’s very hard to pass unless you push someone up in a corner, and I didn’t want to do that to my teammate – plus, I enjoy a good challenge! I drew up alongside of him a couple of times as we drag raced into turn one, but he had the better line, and he would get a nose on me every time. In the final lap, on the final corner, I chased him down and drew up next to him again as we raced to the checkers, but he would beat me by a nose!

AIRAID: On Saturday night you ran round 6 of the Production 1000 series. How did that go?

CW: Qualifying went pretty much the same, with me winding up on the pole once more, with O’Brien on the outside again. This time, I wanted to get ahead of him on the start, and as I hit the start cones, I waited just a second, and then gassed it. We both drag raced into the corner, side by side through turn one, and down the back stretch, and then into turn 2, where he had a better line and I had to give a little not to get into his driver’s side rear. He squeezed out ahead of me, and then I played chase once again.

AIRAID: Were you able to get around him on Saturday?

CW: I was determined not to let him beat me again, I got creative and tried a couple of new shift points, since I could hear that he was shifting in the air on the bigger table tops. To do that, you had to hold the revs just a tiny bit longer, and you weren’t in peak power for that time. I started shifting up just before the table tops, and that gave me just enough extra speed to slingshot around him and make my pass for the lead just after halfway through the race. Once I was clear, I could run my fast lines, and I kept and extended that lead until the checkered flag!

AIRAID: You guys invented SR1 as a driver’s class, rather than a money and horsepower contest. How did you do in the SR1 races?

CW: My SR1 qualifying on Friday night went pretty good, and I pulled off a second place qualifier, which again, put me on the pole for the start of the race. During practice I was trying out a new, stiffer swaybar (since mine had broken in the race before), and I liked how it felt. The track was holding a lot of moisture at night, which made traction very different from practice and qualifying.

AIRAID: And how did the round 5 race go?

CW: I controlled the field in my Optima Batteries SR1 as we rolled through our parade lap, and as soon as I hit my cones, I mashed the gas and off we went! I got into the lead early, and drove as clean and mistake free as I could, which kept me in the lead, despite a lot of heat from several VERY fast racers. I would cross the finish line in FIRST place in the SR1 class – which was my first win in a few rounds! Felt good to get back on the podium after dealing with some issues with my SR1 for so many races.

AIRAID: And how did you do in round 6?

CW: My qualifier for round 6 wasn’t a good one, as I got into lap traffic too early, and when I attempted to burn off a lap before my last one due to a crippled car that wouldn’t leave the track, I wound up wasting the last lap, which was my fastest, due to that same car suddenly veering back onto the track and trying to go again, right in front of me. So, my third lap was actually my fastest, putting me into a fifth place qualifying position, which was terrible for my points, and put me mid-pack on the start.

Many of these tracks have only a single line making passing difficult in racing conditions

AIRAID: How did the race go?

CW: I piled on the tearoffs, and knew this would be a battle just to get to a podium position with all of the fastest guys in front of me on a very easy track. I held my line on the start, and was actually able to get around several cars within the first two turns, but then I noticed my SR1 was having issues on the low end, whenever I was trying to come out of a corner. It felt like the motor had tightened up on me, and it just wasn’t happy anywhere below 7,000 RPM. I stayed in it, and drove the best race possible, but still only finished in 4th after a lot of battling to stay in that position.

AIRAID: Where are you in the points now?

CW: In Production 1000 I am first in points with a 14-point margin and in SR1 I am in second in points with six points between me and first.

AIRAID-Sponsored Drivers McGrath and Heger Finish on Podium in Chandler, Arizona

AIRAID-sponsored Yamaha YXZ at Lucas Oil Off Road Driven by Brock Heger

AIRAID-sponsored Yamaha YXZ at Lucas Oil Off Road Driven by Brock Heger

The season opener of the 2017 Lucas Oil Off Road Series was strong and a good insight of what is to come the rest of the year. Between Brock Heger and Jeremy McGrath they received five trophies on the first weekend of racing. Brock raced in two classes, his Pro Lite and Production UTV, which is a new class for the national series. Brock was not sure going into the weekend if his AIRAID Yamaha YXZ would be ready for the first race due to the uncertainty of even competing in the new class because he got it back from the performance shop for tuning on the Friday of the race, barely making it to practice. Each time Brock got on the track he improved his times throughout the weekend from the first practice all the way to the races where he finished fifth in Round 1 and then third in Round 2. If he keeps this pace up he will be on top of the podium real soon.

Brock didn’t stop his progression there since he also raced in his Pro Lite and was very fast but the weekend did not start out the way he hoped for. In practice, another driver hit Brock causing him to roll multiple times and damaging the truck. The team was able to get the truck back together and Brock was able to get focused and put it behind him. Brock qualified first and started on the front row of Saturday’s race. When the green flag started waving, Brock was on the gas and not looking back. He led every lap of the race finishing with the fastest lap and his first win of the season.

For Sunday’s race he would start on the second row, where he would battle with the leaders the majority of the race. But there was some contact during the race where Brock ended up with a flat tire and during a caution he was able to make it into the hot pits where the team was able to get it changed and keep him on the lead lap. With only six laps remaining, Brock knew he had to charge as hard as he could towards the front. One by one he passed the other trucks making it all the way up to the leaders on the final lap.

Going into the final turn he was right behind them when the leader made a mistake and went up on two wheels trapping second place on the outside. With a split-second decision Brock cut to the bottom of the track and was able to pass both trucks and move on to the checkered flag for his second consecutive win. Brock said, “After the flat tire I thought to myself there goes the points, so the only thing for me to do is to just charge towards the front to get the most points. On the last lap I had caught Haile and Jerrett and was looking at trying to get around Hailie before the finish line for points when somehow I came out of the final turn with the lead. They say things just happen and this is one of those times.”

Jeremy McGrath had a very successful opening weekend in his AIRAID, Maxxis Tires Pro 2. Jeremy was up in the front all weekend from qualifying laps to the races. Starting the season out strong meant that Jeremy had some great battles with some other great drivers like Bryce Menzies, Rob McCachren, and RJ Anderson. Jeremy stayed in the top five throughout the race battling around third and also for the lead. With the top drivers all battling for position they would swap back and fourth throughout the race. At the end of the race Jeremy would end up on the podium in third place.

The racing in round two was just as intense with Jeremy battling in the front group. The top four were battling all together throughout the race, and at the wave of the checkered flag Jeremy was in the fourth place position just missing the podium. Opening weekend was a strong start to the season in which Jeremy was still coming out third in points after two rounds. Jeremy said, “I feel great about the JM2 program right now. My truck was solid and I feel confident we will be winning races soon. I am really proud of Brock Heger and all the guys on the team, we are having a lot of fun racing.”

The team is planning on bringing the same momentum into the next rounds at Estero Beach, Mexico. The track in Mexico is completely different than the other tracks in the series. Brock is looking forward to the next rounds at a track that he really likes since Brock got his first Pro Lite podium at Estero Beach back in 2015. Brock is hoping to bring his 2017 momentum into the race, and that includes his sweep in the season opener and also his win in his desert car this past weekend. Watch out for this young driver to show everyone how fast he is no matter if he is in his Yamaha YXZ, his Prolite, or his desert car. Also watch for Jeremy to be up front and on the podium in his Pro2. With these two teammates showcasing their speed, watch for their energy to feed each other and be even stronger working as a team.

Boost power on the 2008-2011 Cadillac CTS 3.6L V6 with an AIRAID Cold Air Intake

2008-2011 Cadillac CTS 3.6L Performance Intake - AIRAID 253-252C CAD System

2008-2011 Cadillac CTS 3.6L Performance Intake - AIRAID 253-252C CAD System

Thanks to its 5.4L Hemi V8, the 1955 Chrysler 300C was the first mass-produced American car to have over 300-hp. Cadillac also offered a 5.4L V8 in 1955, but it could only manage 270-hp. Fast forward to 2008, and the freshly minted Cadillac CTS offered a 3.6L VVT V6 that pumped out and incredible 304-hp. That was four whole Shetland pony's more than the old Hemi-powered Mopar, and it wasn't even Cadillac's fire-spitting performance model (i.e. Cadillac CTS-V).

Now one might argue that the contemporary Chrysler 300C produced more than 304 horsepower from its 5.7L Hemi V8. But the direct injected Cadillac 3.6L LLT V6 was one of the first naturally-aspirated American V6 engines to crack the 300 hp mark. It would be years before the Chrysler 3.6L Pentastar V6 could compete, so the 2008-2011 Cadillac CTS 3.6L was for a time, the most powerful V6 American luxury sedan. And thanks to the AIRAID 253-252C Cadillac CTS cold air intake system, you can increase the power of your Cadilac 3.6L LY7 or Cadillac 3.6L LLT even further.

Thanks to modern technological advances, the Cadillac 3.6L V6 is able to create V-8 power from a relatively small package. This happens because the fuel and air mixture is able to be compressed in such a way that more power can be created from a relatively small amount fuel. An AIRAID Cadillac CTS cold air intake system is able to maximize the power output by increasing the amount of oxygen-rich cold air that reaches the cylinders. Under normal circumstances, the OE intake system pulls in air from outside the engine compartment via a plastic air box located near the radiator. Before air can reach the engine however, it must first get extruded through a thick paper air filter to remove any contaminants.

In theory, this will prevent engine damage and make that Cadillac 3.6L V6 operate more efficiently. Except, all of the dirt that the OE 2008-2011 Cadillac CTS 3.6L air filter removes, builds up between the paper creases (hence the term 'surface loading' filter) and blocks airflow. Not only does this limit the amount of oxygen that will ultimately reach the combustion chambers. It causes the air that does make it through, to slow down and heat up. Cold air on the other hand, has more oxygen molecules than warm air, and velocity allows more air to get compressed into the cylinders. So pumping lots of cold air into the motor will cause the fuel to burn hotter, which yields more horsepower, more torque, and much faster throttle response.

To do this, the AIRAID 253-252C cold air dam intake system swaps out the factory air box and paper air filter, with a big blue AIRAID SynthaMax high-flow performance air filter. This washable synthetic air filter is made from two different layers of polyester. The outer layer of needlefelt polyester is designed to capture larger contaminants without reducing airflow.

The second layer of denser wet-laid/chemical bonded rayon and polyester stops the finer dirt particles, so you get maximum filtration, without creating restrictions. These Cadillac CTS performance air filters are considered 'depth loading', because the dirt gets stored inside the filter material, instead of on the surface. This allows a much higher volume of air to enter the system, and the special AIRAID cold air dam isolates the high-flow filter from the hot air inside the engine bay.

Once the clean air has passed through the filter, it enters a low restriction polyethylene intake tube. A unique molding process causes the tube to funnel air to the motor at a higher velocity than the narrow OE intake tube, and the wide-angle curves virtually eliminate air turbulence.

All of these features combine to yield more horsepower and torque, and a more immediate response from the gas pedal. An AIRAID 253-252C cold air dam intake will also reduce your maintenance cost, because that big 360-degree AIRAID SynthaMax air filter won't have to be cleaned for up to 50,000 miles (depending on road conditions).

AIRAID-Sponsored JM2 Motorsports Team Wins Big South of the Border

AIRAID Filters Production UTV finishing second in both days of racing

AIRAID Filters Production UTV finishing second in both days of racing

The JM2 Motorsports team headed south of the border to Estero Beach, not to relax, but to overcome any challenges that would be thrown that at them from a track on the beach. The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series rounds three and four were held in Ensenada, Mexico, next to the Estero Beach Resort. Jeremy McGrath and Brock Heger were both able to handle everything that was thrown at them and finish strong.

Brock started out the weekend up front in his AIRAID Filters Production UTV where he would battle in the front both days. Each race, Brock would battle for the lead throughout both races, just missing the win and finishing in second both days. After finishing strong both days over the weekend, Brock would over take the lead in the championship points.

In ProLite, Brock came into the weekend with the points lead after sweeping the first two rounds in Chandler, Arizona. Brock started off strong, qualifying first for Saturday’s race. He would battle for the lead in the beginning of the race before he would take the lead and finish on top of the podium for the third straight race. The next race Brock started on the second row. The top four trucks would battle the entire race while pulling away from everyone else. They would battle the entire race with the top four finishing the exact way they started with Brock finishing third place. After Brock’s strong weekend, he would remain the points leader in both the Pro Lite and his UTV. Brock said, “My Pro Lite was working amazing all weekend. This track is unlike any other race during the year. Set up is everything! I think Jeremy and I have an advantage with awesome support from Maxxis Tires and ICON Suspension guys here at the race making sure we have what we need.”

Brock wasn’t the only one standing on the podium in Mexico. Jeremy had a very strong weekend in his Maxxis Tires, AIRAID Pro2 as well. It all started in qualifying and then carried it into the race. For Saturday’s race, Jeremy started on the front row and with the green flag he would jump out into the lead and stay there until the checkered flag waved, giving him a first place podium finish. On Sunday, Jeremy was fast once again, qualifying number one for the race, but drew an inversion of six. Starting on the third row Jeremy knew he had a hard race ahead of him. With all the sand and dirt flying into the truck from the roost in front of him, the AIRAID filters were going to be put to the test.

The filters held up strong, keeping everything out of his motor, but other parts on the truck weren’t so fortunate during the race. Jeremy said, “Starting from the 6th position is hard to come back from at any race, but Mexico is the hardest. The roost was insane and I did my best to charge to the front. I had some heavy contact in turn three that left me with a bent tie rod. The truck was difficult to keep straight and a 5th was the best we could do today. My team did an amazing job, it was great to have my family here and the people in Baja are so welcoming! We sure do love Mexico and the win on Saturday felt great!” With Jeremy’s win and a fifth place finish, he is second in points in his Pro2.

Mexico was both a strong weekend and a strong start to the 2017 season for the JM2 Motorsports team. They will be heading out to rounds five and six at the Utah Motorsports Complex in Tooele, Utah, in June. So watch for Brock and Jeremy to be up in front and battling for the win every time they are out on the track.

AIRAID Can Add Power to Fullsize 1996-2000 Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac Trucks & SUVs

AIRAID 202-240 Air Box Intake for all 96-00 GMT800 4.3L Vortec V6, 5.0L Vortec V8, and 5.7L Vortec

AIRAID 202-240 air box intake for all 96-00 GMT800 4.3L Vortec V6, 5.0L Vortec V8, and 5.7L Vortec

For the 1996 model year, General Motors released a new line of Vortec engines for its GMT800 Chevrolet, Cadillac, and GMC fullsize pickup trucks and SUVs. The name is derived from the unique intake ports and cylinder walls, which are designed to create a vortex between the air and fuel as they enter the combustion chamber.

Thanks to this novel setup, the 4.3L Vortec 4300 V6, 5.0L Vortec 5000 V8, and 5.7L Vortec 5700 V8 were able to make considerably more power than the preceding generation of engines, even though they were the same size. These GM Vortec motors were used in a number of different cars, trucks and SUVs. But the AIRAID 202-240 Air Box Performance Intake System is only designed to work with the following GM trucks:

  • 1996-2000 Chevrolet Silverado C1500 (up to 1999), C2500 & C3500
  • 1996-2000 Chevrolet Silverado K1500 (up to 1999), K2500 & K3500
  • 1996-2000 GMC Sierra C1500 (up to 1999), C2500 & C3500
  • 1996-2000 GMC Sierra K1500 (up to 1999), K2500 & K3500
  • 1996-1999 Chevrolet Suburban C1500/C2500
  • 1996-1999 Chevrolet Suburban K1500/K2500
  • 1996-1999 GMC Suburban C1500/C2500
  • 1996-1999 GMC Suburban K1500/K2500

AIRAID improves power on all GMT800 trucks & SUVs with the Vortec V6 or Vortec V8

AIRAID improves power on all GMT800 trucks & SUVs with the Vortec V6 or Vortec V8

The idea behind the General Motors Vortec engine design is to increase the velocity and volume of air entering the combustion chamber. That way the air will be able to mix more thoroughly with the fuel, which allows the engine to create more power by burning the fuel more completely. The stock air intake system however, can't provide enough air for the 4.3L Vortec, 5.0L Vortec, or 5.7L Vortec to reach its performance potential. And that's where the AIRAID 202-240 cold air intake system comes in. Instead of relying on the restrictive factory air box and 'surface loading' paper air filter. The whole intake system gets replaced by a high-flow AIRAID SynthaMax air filter, that is surrounded by a specially designed Cold Air Dam (CAD). When the hood is closed, a rubber gasket on top of the CAD seals out hot engine bay air, creating a virtual cold air chamber. The oversized AIRAID performance air filter can then ingest a much higher volume of cold air, as it rushes in through a hole in the side of the fender well.

All of that oxygen-rich cold air is then cleaned as it passes through the washable synthetic air filter. It's made from two distinct layers of non-woven polyester, that have been specifically developed to trap and hold even the smallest dirt particles. Then you can just wash it out and keep going. No oil treatment required. Plus, it's backed by the AIRAID No-Hassle Lifetime Warranty, so it will probably be the last air filter that you have to buy.

Because the AIRAID 202-240 cold air intake utilizes the factory intake tube, all of the stock sensors and ECU settings remain unchanged. This allows for a simple installation, and 50-state street legal status.

AIRAID Now Offers a Trail-Ready Toyota FJ Cruiser Performance Air Intake

AIRAID Cold Air Intake for 2007-2009 Toyota FJ Cruiser

An AIRAID cold air dam intake offers a durable performance upgrade for the 2007-2009 Toyota FJ Cruiser

In 1951, Toyota test driver Ichiro Taira used a treacherous hiking trail to drive a BJ-Series 4x4 prototype up the side of Mt. Fuji. He made it to checkpoint 6 (7,841 ft/1.4 miles), which was the farthest that a motorized vehicle had ever been up Japan's iconic 12,388-ft volcano. The Japanese and American governments were extremely impressed by the power of Toyota's 6cyl 4x4 (remember; the Willys Jeep and Land Rover Series I only had wheezy 4 cylinders), and immediately placed orders for the Toyota BJ20 (the name stands for Type B engine/Jeep).

The Land Cruiser name was adopted in 1954, and a 1955 redesign brought with it a more powerful 3.9L Type F engine (based on a GMC truck engine design), along with the now-famous FJ designation. The more refined Toyota FJ40 debuted in 1960, and it became the marque's best-selling model in the U.S. from 1961-1965. If you look closely at the 2007-2009 Toyota FJ Cruiser, you'll see FJ40 influences in the front grille, the shape of the wheel arches, and the curved rear quarter windows. But the similarities don't end there.

Under the retro bodywork is the same platform used under the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado (a.k.a. Lexus GX)/Toyota 4Runner, but it's been modified to allow for 9.6 inches of ground clearance, 8-in/9-in of front and rear suspension travel, and 34-degree/30-degree approach/departure angles. This dedicated continent-conqueror is powered by the durable Toyota 1GR-FE 4.0L V6, which in the 2007-2009 FJ Cruiser, churns out 239-hp and 278 lb-ft of torque. However, there's still plenty of power to be had from this motor. So the mad scientists at AIRAID created the AIRAID 512-179 cold air dam performance intake system, and they engineered it to withstand anything the trail can throw at it.

Like all internal combustion engines, the Toyota 1GR-FE 4.0L V6 has to pipe air to the cylinders, where it's mixed with the gas and ignited by a spark plug. The explosion consumes the oxygen molecules and forces the piston back down, turning the crankshaft, and ultimately the wheels. Before the air can reach the motor, it has to enter through a hole in the fenderwell, then travel up a narrow intake flex tube and force its way through a layer of dirt on the paper air filter that lives inside the air box.

This limits power output because the corrugated surface inside that narrow intake tube causes the air to swirl around and heats it up. Then, all of the dirt that's collected on the 'surface loading' OE Toyota FJ Cruiser air filter, restricts the amount of air that can actually reach the throttle body. If you reduce these airflow restrictions and lower the temperature of the air charge, the additional oxygen molecules will allow the engine to extract more horsepower and torque during the combustion cycle. And that's where the AIRAID 512-179 cold air intake comes in.

In place of the restrictive stock 2007, 2008, or 2009 Toyota FJ Cruiser intake system, this AIRAID FJ Cruiser cold air intake utilizes a high-flow AIRAID SynthaMax air filter that sits just in front of that fenderwell air intake hole. To keep hot engine air out of the system, that big synthetic performance air filter is surrounded by a rugged steel heat shield that mounts directly to the fenderwell. The filter and CAD attach directly to the air box with a flexible urethane coupler, which is designed to absorb vibrations and chassis flex when you're out on the trail.

On top of the AIRAID heat shield a thick rubber gasket is used to seal against the underside of the hood and keep hot engine air from reaching the air filter. It also cushions against vibration and chassis flex, just like the flex coupler. Unlike many Toyota FJ Cruiser cold air intake systems, the AIRAID 512-179 CAD performance intake system is engineered to be just as durable as the truck it's bolted to.

With a trail-ready mounting system in place, the oversized AIRAID SynthaMax performance air filter can provide your 2007 to 2009 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4.0L with the oxygen-rich cold air it needs to give you more horsepower, more torque, and much faster throttle response. This oil free performance air filter is made from two specially designed layers of synthetic material: 1.) The outer layer of needlefelt polyester is designed to capture large dirt and debris, for optimum filtration in wet or dry conditions. 2.) The inner layer of chemical bonded rayon/polyester features a non-woven fiber structure that stops fine dust and airborne contaminants that may not be visible to the naked eye. Whether you're driving through the urban jungle or a real one, the dual-layer SynthaMax air filter material provides maximum engine protection.

In addition, airflow is significantly increased, because all of that dirt gets stored inside the material (called 'depth loading') itself. The filter won't need to be cleaned for up to 50,000 miles (depending on driving conditions). However, if you do a lot of driving in dusty/muddy/dirty conditions, we recommend checking the filter more often. And if you plan to use the FJ Cruiser's 27.5-in water fording capability, you can even get a water resistant AIRAID 799-456 filter wrap.

The AIRAID 512-179 is designed to fit the following vehicles:

2009 TOYOTA FJ CRUISER 4.0L V6 Fuel Injection - All Models
2008 TOYOTA FJ CRUISER 4.0L V6 Fuel Injection - All Models

Gorgeous 1975 Chevy C10 To Be Auctioned in Memory Of Custom Car Builder Mark Cain

Marc Cain died of complications of ALS shortly after the 2016 SEMA Show

Lyon McClenahan of the Finish Line Speed Shop built a C10 truck to memorialize friend Marc Cain

If you’ve seen a vehicle that’s been on display at the SEMA Show, whether online, in the pages of a magazine, on televisions, or perhaps even in person, then you know that these customized rigs are among the finest creations from the most creative builders from across the country.

And while we’re sure that at least once or twice you’d wished that you could drive one of the vehicles on display, here’s your opportunity to actually own one and help a great cause at the same time.

That’s exactly the opportunity that Lyon and Jennifer McClenahan of Finish Line Speed Shop in Bremerton, Washington, want to provide you. According to Lyon, "We built the truck in honor of a good friend and local custom car builder Mark Cain who lost his battle with A.L.S. shortly after we returned from SEMA 2016. The truck will be auctioned off this spring with proceeds going to A.L.S. research in Mark’s honor."

AIRRAID U-Built-It kits provide all the straights and turns a builder would need to make an intake

Under the hood is a 5.3L LS motor drawing air through an AIRAID U-Build-It Master Kit

The 1975 Chevrolet C10 truck debuted at the SEMA Show in 2016 in the Covercraft Car Covers booth in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, about as prominent a location as you’ll find. Upon learning of the upcoming auction and examining the truck up close, Street Muscle Magazine wrote, "So what can the new owner expect from this beautiful truck? The list is long, for sure, but it will be a vehicle that you’ll cherish."

That long list includes a PorterBuilt Fab front Dropmember with AccuAir ENDO-VT E-Level Ride Management system, VIAIR Compressors and Dominator 2600 air bags front and Dominator F9000 rears. According to Lyon the truck, "Lays frame when aired out, about 12-inches." Rear suspension is also by PB Fab, using their four-link kit, while QA1 shocks all around handle damping duties.

Under the hood is a significantly more modern 2006 5.3L LS V8. Bolted to the back of the LS is a Chevy 4L65E driving a 12-bolt fitted with a Detroit Truetrac LSD wrapped by a 3.73:1 ring and pinion. Intake air is channeled through an AIRAID 101-302 U-Build-It Master Kit directly into the AIRAID 200-512-1 PowerAid Throttle Body Spacer, which is designed to increase part-throttle torque and improve mid-range power. The spacer utilizes a unique, patented Helix Bore to spin the incoming air charge as it passes through the throttle body spacer. This increases the velocity of the intake air and improves atomization of the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. Spent gases are moved from the engine compartment by a Hedman C10 LS Swap Ceramic Coated Header with Stage 8 Locking Header Bolts.

POWERAID Throttle Body Spacers are manufactured from Aircraft Grade Billet 6061-T6 aluminum

The unique "Helix Bore" design of the POWERAID spacer creates a spinning action of the incoming air

Inside the cab, the driver controls the C10 via a CON2R custom steering wheel with a Finish Line Speed Shop logo in the hub, which is mounted to a tilt column and shifter assembly from Ididit. Covercraft Floor Mats created unique floor mats and a dash mat with the Strike Out A.L.S. ribbon. Keeping driver and passenger (even more) cool is a Vintage Air HVAC system. While the seats remain the OEM bench, they’ve been re-covered and feature suede inserts with Rostra seat heaters.

Tunes are blown out through a Bluetooth controlled head unit via a KICKER IQI interface. A custom enclosure behind the bench seat houses three eight-inch subwoofers powered by a dedicated amplifier, while upper registers are handled by two sets of 6.75” speakers mounted in the doors and powered by a four-channel amp, all courtesy of Kicker. On the inside DEI Boom Mat sound deadener and insulating were installed throughout the cab to keep the tunes in and road noise out.

Under the cover is the compressor and pressure tank for the air ride system

The trunk cover assembly in the bed was created from the two edges of a C-10 hood

More interior details include custom pinstriping on the glove box, ash tray, H3 Performance Fire Extinguisher and inner front fender filler panels with House of Kolor striping paint by the talented Ron Wall of Off The Wall Kreations.

Vital information is provide to the driver via a Dakota Digital HDX gauge cluster, while a Rostra Precision backup camera is cleverly embedded in the rear view mirror.

You hardly need to tilt your head to spot the Centerline Smoothies wheels, perhaps one of the most attention-getting components on the truck. With 22” x 9” all around wrapped with 265/35R22 Toyos in the front, and 285/35R22 Toyos in the rear to say they make a statement is, well, an understatement.

A feature that Lyon is particular proud of is hidden in the bed of the truck. Lyon describes it as a “notch cover in bed of truck, which was fabricated out of two square-body Chevy truck hoods put together for a hinged cover we refer to as the Trunk.” Describing the trunk, Lyon said, “It uses the factory hood latch assembly and has another tailgate handle in the bed floor riser that releases the latch assembly. The tailgate must be in the down position to see the handle and the fuel filler.”

The time and date of the auction has yet to be set but AIRAID will keep you up to date

The customized C10 will be auctioned to benefit resaerch into Amyotrophic Laterals Sclerosis (ALS)

Of course it’s the outside appearance that first draws the attention of the crowds. According to Lyon, “All trim, bumpers, mirrors, handles etc. were blacked out and the side trim, wheel moldings, and door handles had the center groove brushed aluminum finish.”

There’s always plenty of attention and admiration wherever the truck is parked, perhaps as much for its paint as any other feature. The paint comes from the world-renowned House of Kolor, with S2-LE03 Blood Orange over KD3004 Red Sealer and BC26 White with Ice White Pearl side covers.

To complete the package and make it auction ready, there’s a custom billet badge of the Strike Out A.L.S. ribbon mounted to the tailgate. A fitting tribute to a good friend to many, who was never too busy to help out on someone else's project.

S197 Ford Mustang GT Owners Get Horsepower and Torque Boost with an AIRAID Air Intake

S197 Ford Mustang GT Cold Air Intake - AIRAID 452-304 MXP System

S197 Ford Mustang GT Cold Air Intake - AIRAID 452-304 MXP System

In order to capture a slice of the burgeoning "Baby Boomer" market, Ford's General Manager Lee Iacocca decided to create an affordably priced "youth oriented" coupe, complete with an a la carte options list (a first in the "low priced" segment). To create a buzz for their innovative little 'Mustang', Ford launched the biggest media campaign the automotive world had ever seen. When it finally went on sale (April 17, 1964), buyers responded to the hype by snapping up nearly half-a-million Mustangs in the first calendar year. 40 years later, those 20-something Boomers were now 60-something. So Ford decided to pander to their pension-funded sense of nostalgia, while simultaneously trying to attract younger buyers to the Mustang line. The result was the 2005-2009 S-197 Ford Mustang. And it not only helped to bring a whole new audience into the showrooms, but it almost singlehandedly reignited the infamous Detroit muscle car wars. And if you need some help fending off those pesky Camaros and Challengers, AIRAID has an S197 Ford Mustang GT cold air intake that'll do the trick.

To make a performance splash, the 2005-2009 Ford Mustang GT was fitted with an all-new 4.6L modular V8 engine. The blue oval engineers gave it a special intake system that could vary the air velocity to increase the horsepower and torque depending on the RPMs. The AIRAID 452-304 MXP high performance intake system is designed to maximize the effect of the 4.6L charge motion control valve system, by delivering a much higher volume of cold air than the OE Ford Mustang intake system can provide. It does this by replacing the restrictive air box with a high-flow AIRAID SynthaMax performance air filter that's surrounded by a unique molded cold air dam. The wide-angle intake tube is also made from the same high density polyethylene material, which is almost completely resistant to heat soak. This means the air charge will remain cool, even as the engine temperatures rise.

With the air temperature well controlled, the multi-layer AIRAID Ford Mustang 4.6L performance air filter can remove contaminants from the air, and store them inside the non-woven synthetic material. Thanks to this 'depth loading' design, airflow won't be reduced by a layer of dirt. This dirt will remain inside the filter, until it is time to clean the filter, at 50,000 miles (depending on road conditions). At that point, you can simply wash it out and keep going. All the oxygen-rich air this Ford Mustang performance intake system provides, can then be used by the 4.6L modular V8 to extract more power from the fuel, by burning it more completely. However, the AIRAID 452-304 MXP high performance intake system is a 'Race Only' system, and must be accompanied by an appropriate 4.6L ECU tune. This will adjust the cam timing, spark timing, and modify the fuel/air mixture to work with all of the additional oxygen that this AIRAID S-197 Ford Mustang cold air intake will provide. The actual horsepower and torque improvements will depend on the specific tune that you use, along with the modifications and condition of your 2005-2009 Ford Mustang GT or 2008-2009 Ford Mustang Bullitt.

AIRAID Makes a Bolt-On Air Intake System for 1991-1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ 2.5L

1991-1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ 2.5L Cold Air Intake System - AIRAID 312-176 CAD Intake

1991-1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ 2.5L Cold Air Intake System - AIRAID 312-176 CAD Intake

By the early-1980s, American car buyers were starting to value comfort and style more than outright function. This shift in taste hit AMC's Jeep Division particularly hard, and their legendary Jeep CJ7 off-roader was starting to languish on dealer lots. Since the company desperately needed to regain market share, they wisely decided to create a new 4x4 that people might actually want to buy. The result became known as the Jeep Wrangler YJ, and it drew immediate ire from Jeep loyalists over its "flashy" styling and perceived "softening" (the Wrangler YJ didn't have as much ground clearance as the CJ-7, and the suspension was tuned for better on-road behavior). Nevertheless, the plucky little planet rover proved itself to be just as capable as its predecessor, and Chrysler's marketing muscle helped to attract younger, more affluent Wrangler buyers. Many of these customers however, didn't buy the YJ Wrangler for its off-road capability. So to them, the standard AMC 2.5L engine worked just fine in the city, or cruising down the beach. But if you want to get more power out of your 1991-1995 Jeep Wrangler 2.5L (w/o ABS), an AIRAID 312-176 Cold Air Dam performance intake system can provide the extra torque you're looking for.

Whether you're driving to work, or driving over a dead tree in the middle of the woods,

your Jeep Wrangler 2.5L relies on outside air to burn the fuel inside the motor. It comes in through a small hole at the bottom of the air box, then the air is forced through a layer of dirt that collects on the surface of the paper Wrangler YJ air filter. Not only does the air box restrict airflow, those 'surface loading' filters further reduce the amount and velocity of air that reaches the motor. This results in lost power. An AIRAID 312-176 Cold Air Dam intake is designed to increase horsepower and torque by reducing these restrictions. It does this by replacing the OE air box with a high-flow AIRAID SynthaMax air filter, surrounded by a rugged self-sealing Cold Air Dam. When the hood is closed, it rests on a rubber gasket that prevents hot engine air from reaching the oversized AIRAID performance air filter. This cold air chamber is positioned to direct a much higher volume of cold air into the intake. But first, that air has to be cleaned.

It doesn't matter where you drive, there will be dirt particles in the air. To stop them from reaching your motor, an AIRAID SynthaMax performance air filter uses two distinct layers of synthetic material. The first is made from needlefelt polyester, and it's designed to stop large dirt and debris in wet or dry conditions. The second/inner layer of wet-laid, chemical bonded rayon and polyester traps fine dust, and other contaminants that may be too small to see with the naked eye. This low restriction material provides unparalleled airflow, because the dirt stays trapped inside of the material, instead of on the surface. Plus, you won't have to clean it for up to 50,000 miles (depending on road conditions).

Once the air has been cleaned, it passes into a low restriction intake tube that has been aerodynamically designed to reduce airflow restrictions and air turbulence. This allows air to travel to the intake and a much greater speed, which improves the fuel and air mixture. Combine the velocity with the additional oxygen molecules in the cold air, and you have a much hotter fuel detonation that results in considerably more horsepower and torque. And since none of the factory emission control components are modified, the AIRAID 312-176 Cold Air Dam intake system is street legal in all 50 states.

The AIRAID 312-176 is designed for the following vheicles:

1995 JEEP WRANGLER 2.5L L4 Fuel Injection - All Models
