When people talk about the muscle or pony cars of the 1960s one of the cars they are referring to is the Ford Mustang. Originally based on the platform of the second generation North American Ford Falcon, the Mustang was originally introduced in 1962 as a two-seater concept car that evolved into a four-seater concept in 1963 before the production model was unveiled in April 1964 for the 1965 model year.

Two engines were available to power the 1965 Mustang –- a 200-cubic inch six-cylinder that delivered 120-horsepower and a 289-cubic inch V8 that generated 210-horsepower and was offered in hardtop, fastback, and convertible body styles.

From 1967 until 1973 the Mustang got bigger, but not necessarily more powerful. It physically became more massive, which permitted the use of a big block engine for the first time.

In its second generation starting in 1974 and lasting until 1978, Lee Iacocca, the driving force behind the creation of the original Mustang and who by this time was President of Ford, demanded that the car be made smaller and more fuel efficient. When the second-generation model was finally released, it was the same size, shape and had the same overall style as the original 1964 model. In order for it to meet new U.S. Government emission and safety regulations its performance capability was reduced.

Two engines were available to power the 1974 model –- a 2.3-liter I-4 that was used on the Ford Pinto and a 2.8-liter Cologne V6 that also powered the Mercury Capri.

A 302-cubic inch Windsor V8, which had been used to power a version of the first generation Mustang, was re-introduced in the 1975 model year with the C-4 automatic transmission, power brakes, and power steering.

It was available in coupe and hatchback and there was also a Ghia Model, the so-called “luxury” variants, that was designed by Ghia of Italy, which had recently been acquired by Ford.

The third-generation Mustang was introduced in 1979. It was based on the platform that was originally developed for the 1978 Ford Fairmont and Mercury Zephyr. Despite a smaller rear seat, the car could accommodate four people. Body styles included a coupe, notchback, hatchback, and convertible. Trim levels included L. GL, GLX, LX, GT, GTS, Turbo GT, GT-350, SVO, Cobra, Cobra R, and Ghia. The engines that powered the third-generation models included electronic fuel injection rather than a carburetor.

The fourth generation Mustang was unveiled in 1994 and it was the result of the first major redesign in 15 years.

A 3.8 OHV V6 that generated 145-bhp in 1994 and 1995 and 150-bhp in 1996 through 1998 powered the cars. The powertrain included a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 4-speed automatic.

The 1999 model featured a 3.8-liter V6 with a new split-port induction system was the standard engine and delivered 190 bhp. A 3.9-liter variant of the Essex engine replaced the 3.8-liter V6 in 2004. Models that were available during the fourth generation included the Bullitt, Mach 1 and the Cobra, the first Mustang to feature an independent rear suspension.

The fifth-generation Mustangs were manufactured from 2005 through 2014. A cast-iron block 4.0-liter SOHC V6, which generated 210-horsepower, powered the cars from 2005 to 2010. Mustangs released in 2010 and beyond featured a new 3.72-liter (227-cubic inch) aluminum block V6 engine that produced 305-horsepower and 280 lb-ft (380 N-m) of torque.

GT models featured a 32-volve 5.0-liter (302.13-cubic inch) engine known as the Coyote that produced 412-horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. A 5.4-liter supercharged V8 aluminum block V8 that offered 550-horsepower and 510 lb-ft (690N-m) of torque powered the GT500.

In 2012 a new Mustang Boss 302 model was introduced with an engine that delivered 444-horsepower and 380 lb-ft (520 N-m) of torque.

An upgrade of the fifth-generation Mustang was introduced in the second quarter of 2012. The Shelby GT500 featured a new 5.8-liter supercharged V8 that produced 662-horsepower. Shelby and Boss engines included a 6-speed manual transmission.

Boost Low-RPM Torque in Your 2016 Camaro V6 with a POWERAID Throttle Body Spacer

The AIRAID 250-609 POWERAID Throttle Body Spacer comes with all the mounting hardware you'll nee

The AIRAID 250-609 POWERAID throttle body spacer comes with all the mounting hardware you'll need

Back in 1969, you could buy an entry level Chevy Camaro SS for $3,023 ($19,911 in today's money), and it would be equipped with a 350 ci V8 that made a staggering 300-hp. That was a lot of pony power back then, and it could propel this 3,400 lb Mustang-fighter to 60 mph in just 6.8 ticks. Fast forward nearly 50 years and the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro can be equipped with a 335-hp 3.6L V6, and galloping to 60 mph takes just 5.1 seconds. No matter how you look at it, that's an incredible advancement. The all-new 6th generation 2016 Camaro V6 also gets considerably more miles-to-the-gallon than the 1969's 10 mpg, and the optional dual-mode exhaust system can really make this brute sing. But if you want to increase your torque between 800-3,000 RPM, then you're going to need an AIRAID 250-609 POWERAID throttle body spacer.

The 3.6L V6 in your 2016 Chevy Camaro uses a wide range of cutting edge technology to squeeze V8 power from just 6 cylinders. One of these hi-tech power extractors is the direct injection system, which sprays a precise mist of fuel into each cylinder so it can mix with the air more thoroughly before detonation (known as atomization). This potent air/fuel mixture creates a stronger detonation, which results in more power. If you want to increase the effectiveness of the Chevy direct injection system, you need to increase the velocity of the air going into the cylinders. That way the oxygen molecules will become more evenly distributed, which increases their ability to blend with the fuel molecules. To do this, the AIRAID 250-609 throttle body spacer has a special 'helix bore' that causes the air to spin as it exits the intake tube. This causes the air to swirl around inside the cylinder, creating a sort of vortex that sucks in the fuel mist, mixing the two together more completely.

Think of it this way, if you squirt chocolate syrup into a glass of milk while you stir it, you're going to create a much richer glass of chocolate milk, than if you just dumped in the chocolate and tried to smush out all the lumps. Translate that into a fuel/air mixture, and the richer blend will create a hotter detonation, which pushes the cylinder down with more force, turning the crankshaft and ultimately the wheels. This additional torque will be available lower in the rev-band and less throttle input will be needed to reach it. So from 800-3,000 RPM, the 250-609 POWERAID throttle body spacer will give your 2016 Camaro V6 much sharper throttle response, and it'll accelerate faster from a stop and on part-throttle. Plus, it takes less than an hour to install, and it's backed by the AIRAID No-Hassle Lifetime Warranty.

Proudly Made in the U.S.A., just like your Camaro, the AIRAID POWERAID 250-609 throttle body spacer is CNC machined from a billet of aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum, and features an attractive red anodized finish. The proprietary helix bore was engineered for the specific airflow requirements of the 2016 Camaro 3.6L V6, and it can be installed with no under-hood modifications.

The AIRAID 250-609 is designed to fit the following vehicles:

This past weekend we stepped into Vic’s Garage at the famed Edelbrock Museum to be a part of NMCA West’s 2016 Championship Awards Ceremony honoring the fastest and finest that the West Coast has to offer.

NMCA West Street Car Nationals is entering its 6th season and features 12 drag classes for racers to compete in from Sportsman to Pro Comp and everything in between. As part of this amazing 4 race series held at the Autoclub Speedway in Fontana, California, NMCA West & Hotchkis Sports Suspension will bring back the Hotchkis Cup Auto X Series presented by Nitto, that has been such a huge success as part of this series.

The evening started with a couple hundred autocross competitors and racers, plus dozens of series sponsors enjoying Vic Edelbrock Jr.’s Museum and Car Collection in Torrance, California. Steve Wolcott of Promedia Events, the NMCA Series Promoter, was on hand to get the party started. He had the distinct honor of introducing the series' major sponsors and of course the man of the hour, the events host and emcee Brian Lohnes, the Co-Creator of Bangshift, announcer for NHRA and the NHRA on Fox Pro Mod Show. Close to 150 awards were given in recognition for the racers achievements.

AIRAID driver Jordan Priestley shares a few words or experience and quite a few "thank yous"

You may recall that our AIRAID-sponsored team driver, Jordan Priestley managed to compete in more than 25 different events in his AIRAID equipped 6th Gen Camaro “Evilynn”. With 4 successful NMCA West Hotchkis Cup Auto X Series events under his belt, Priestley walked away with the Modern Muscle Class Championship as well as the grand prize, the coveted Hotchkis Cup and the title of Hotchkis Cup Auto X Series Champion. To be eligible to win the Hotchkis Cup Auto X Series Championship a competitor must participate in all 4 two-day events and be consistent, consistently fast that is, yielding the greatest number of points to keep them at the top. That is the equivalent to 8 days of racing autocross with some of the series' most capable and talented drivers. In addition, your ride needs to keep up on all 8 days! For some folks, 8 events equals an entire race season. Not for Jordan! Our AIRAID team driver managed to race 20 other events, some of which were also 2-day events.

Here’s a look at all of the 2016 NMCA West Hotchkis Cup Auto X Series Champions:

AIRAID Offers Two Jr. Air Intake Kits for 2015 & 2016 2.3L Ford Mustang

Replacing only those elements that most impacts performance keeps the price down

The AIRAID Jr. Kit specifically targets the most restrictive elements of the Mustang’s OE intake

The 2.3L turbocharged EcoBoost engine was designed specifically for the Mustang, to meet the needs of drivers looking for outstanding performance and fuel efficiency. Compared to other versions of the four-cylinder EcoBoost, the intake manifold has been changed and a low-inertia twin-scroll turbocharger has been utilized to provide better breathing and higher output direct fuel injection, twin independent variable camshaft timing, developing 310 horsepower.

Producing that much power, reliably and day after day takes a stout engine. Ford’s started with a high-pressure die-cast aluminum cylinder block with ladder-frame bearing caps and DOHC 24-valve cylinder head and added to it a forged steel crankshaft, piston-cooling jets, steel piston ring carriers, premium bearing material, upgraded valve seat materials, and forged steel connecting rods. Covering up the bottom is a deep-sump, die-cast aluminum oil pan.

Owners of 2015 – 2016 can boost that output even further with their choice of one of two AIRAID intake systems. Both the 450-730 and the 451-730 are available for the 2015-2016 Ford Mustang 2.3L.

What makes the AIRAID kits so effective on the 2.3 L Mustang is that the EcoBoost engine is turbocharged, and one thing that a turbocharged engine can’t get enough of is air. Ford has demonstrated how the spark will continue to advance and the fuel system continues to deliver incremental gasoline to develop horsepower with an increase of airflow into the turbo.

The AIRAID Jr. kit requires no drilling and installs with simple hand tools

The AIRAID Jr. kit comes with detailed instructions and can be installed on a Saturday morning

In order to achieve that improved inflow of air into the engine, AIRAID has developed the AIRAID Jr. kit, which replaces only those components in the intake system that most limit performance, while leaving the other, less critical, parts in place.

While the AIRAID Jr. kit is a more affordable solution, you won’t achieve quite the same power gains as a full-on AIRAID kit. Though it’s a great starting point for enthusiasts on a budget or for those who’ve never installed an aftermarket intake system and want to see what kind of difference one can make.

The AIRAID Jr. kit specifically targets the most restrictive elements of the Mustang’s factory intake system, the intake tube and the paper filter, in order to help boost power and mileage. AIRAID has two solutions for EcoBoost Mustangs that will improve breathing, and result in increased horsepower and better response. There’s the 450-730 SynthaFlow oiled cotton gauze filter media recommended for those who frequently encounter dusty driving conditions and the 451-730 SynthaMax dry synthetic filter media which is recommended for everyday street driving. The AIRAID Jr. kit also includes an AIRAID modular intake tube. As with other AIRAID intake systems, the AIRAID Jr. Kit helps to straighten and improve air flow to the engine for improved throttle response, plus increased horsepower and torque.

And there’s no need to purchase a new paper filter each time the old one gets dirty when you can upgrade to a serviceable AIRAID Direct-Fit Replacement Filter for often less than the cost of two stock replacements. The AIRAID Jr. kit is easy to install, comes with detailed instructions, can be installed in a Saturday morning with only common hand tools, and requires no drilling.

The SynthaFlow oilled cotton filter is better suited to dirty and dusty conditions

SynthaMax dry synthetic filter media is recommended for everyday street driving

The 450-730 is both washable and reusable. Cleaning your AIRAID SynthaFlow air filter restores full air flow efficiency and maintains optimum engine performance. Best practice is to clean your AIRAID filter every 30,000 to 50,000 miles of normal driving and more frequently if your travel off-road or in heavy dust conditions. The best and easiest way is a quick, three-step process with the AIRAID SynthaFlow air filter cleaning kit which contains a 12-ounce pump bottle of cleaner and an eight ounce squeeze bottle of special filter oil.

The 451-730 is also washable and reusable. Cleaning your AIRAID SynthaMax air filter restores full air flow efficiency and maintains optimum engine performance. Best practice is to clean your AIRAID filter every 30,000 to 50,000 miles of normal driving. If you’re driving in off-road dusty conditions, consider the 450-730 filter. The best and easiest way is a quick, three-step process with the AIRAID SynthaMax dry filter cleaning solution, which contains a 24-ounce pump bottle of cleaner.

And of course both 450-730 and 451-730 are backed by AIRAID’s “No Hassle” Lifetime Warranty, which is simple. If you are ever dissatisfied with the materials, workmanship or performance of this air filter, call us at 800-498-6951 and we will be happy to assist you. You don’t have to worry about a warranty card; AIRAID filters are warranted for life.

Both the AIRAID 450-730 and the AIRAID 451-730 are designed for the following vehicles:

More Power for your Dodge Ram Truck Thanks to an AIRAID Cold Air Intake System

The cold air dam panels help provide a free-flowing supply of cooler outside air into your Cummins

The cold air dam panels help provide a free-flowing supply of cooler outside air into your Cummins

It was 1978, the midst of the gas crisis, and the OEMs were burning the midnight oil to be the first to market with a more economical diesel pickup truck. GM and Dodge tied for being the first to market, but neither would even get a look from today’s diesel owner. Chevrolet stuffed a 120 horsepower 5.7-liter Oldsmobile diesel into a C10. Chevrolet continued to offer the 5.7 in C10s through 1981, replacing it with the much better 6.2-liter in 1982. Dodge offered a 4.0-liter Mitsubishi diesel inline six with 100 horsepower. Dodge dropped the Japanese motor after 1979 and remained diesel-less until 1989. During that time period Chrysler was in discussions with International Harvester for a diesel engine for Ram trucks. Instead, Ford came in with a better offer of $500 million and left Dodge on the outside.

Left with no option to either develop its own diesel V8, or partner with a company with the expertise to develop one on Dodge’s behalf, neither of which the cash-strapped company could afford, the Dodge division went out and purchased engines from diesel specialist Cummins. What broke with Detroit tradition is that engines developed or purchased outside the company are given names that fit within the existing company nomenclature and all marketing materials pretend that the engine is a product of the company. Dodge didn’t do that with Cummins. It made the availability of a real diesel, not a converted passenger car engine, the center point of its marketing. And in doing so, started driving truck sales in 1989 like Dodge had never seen before.

Fast forward to 1994. The Generation 2 Cummins 6BT turbodiesel engine is introduced. Along with smaller detail changes is the replacement of the original fuel pump with one of higher capacity, allowing for greater power production. It offered 175 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. To better meet emissions, Dodge switched first to the Cummins ISB and then the Cummins ISB CR diesels. By 2002, the Cummins 5.9-liter was producing 245 horsepower and a whopping 505 lb-ft of torque.

The 360-degree air filter is washable and reusable and less restrictive than paper filters

If you own a Cummins-powered Dodge Ram truck, particularly an earlier model, an upgrade you should definitely consider is the AIRAID 302-139 cold air dam (CAD) air intake. They’re engineered to provide a steady, free-flowing supply of cooler outside air for your turbocharged diesel to draw from, which the ECU reads, adds more fuel accordingly, and produces more horsepower and torque.

A critical factor is the 11.5” by 7” oval tapered AIRAID premium air filter that’s housed inside an air box providing outstanding air flow and filtration. The filter utilizes a reusable, dry, non-woven synthetic filter media. To maintain performance, clean your AIRAID filter every 30,000 to 50,000 miles for normal driving, and more frequently if your drive in off-road or heavy dust conditions. The best and easiest way is with the AIRAID 790-558 premium dry filter cleaning solution.

Incoming cold air from outside the vehicle is directed through a new air intake tube with a smooth, low-restriction interior thanks to its construction of cross-linked, high-density polyethylene. This cold air dam intake system also has provisions for the factory mass air sensor and filter minder gauge, so there’s no need to recalibrate your truck’s ECU.

Installation of the 302-139 cold air dam is simple, with easy-to-follow instructions. You need only a few basic hand tools and around 90 minutes to increase the power and responsiveness of your Cummins-powered Dodge Ram truck.

The 302-139 cold air dam is backed by AIRAID’s “No Hassle” Lifetime Warranty, which is simple. If you are ever dissatisfied with the materials, workmanship, or performance of this air filter, just give us a call at 800-498-6951 and we will be happy to assist you. You don’t have to worry about a warranty card. AIRAID filters are warranted for life.

AIRAID Offers Two Cold Air Intake Options For The 2016 Camaro SS; Both Add Horsepower

With both dry and oiled filters, AIRAID provides enthsuiasts a choice

Either system that you choose you can count on an increase of an estimated 10 horsepower

If you happen to own a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS, then AIRAID has a unique opportunity for you. In most cases when you replace the stock intake with a cold air system, you have to choose between a synthetic filter that doesn’t require oiling and an oiled filter that offers better performance in dusty and dirty conditions. Now AIRAID offers both. There’s the 250-333 MXP air intake kit with an oiled SYNTHAFLOW filter or the 251-333 MXP air intake kit with a SYNTHAMAX dry synthetic filter element.

Either system that you choose you can count on an increase of an estimated 10 additional horsepower at the rear wheels over an unmodified 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS – which equates to a larger gain at the flywheel, where the manufacturer rates engine power.

The sixth generation of Chevrolet’s pony car was introduced in 2015. It was moved onto the Alpha platform, which it shares with some Cadillac models. This provides the opportunity for advanced technology to migrate easily between the models that share the Alpha platform. Oh, and production of the sixth generation Camaro has been moved back to the United States from Canada.

To create a 2016 Camaro SS, Chevrolet starts by installing the LT-1 Generation V small block as developed for the Corvette. And while still a pushrod design, it features high-tech upgrades like direct injection, variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation. The 6.2 L aluminum V8 produces 455 horsepower rating at 6,000 rpm and 455 lbs-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm.

The replacement of the airbox both increases flow and reduces incoming engine heat

A one-piece roto-molded air box addresses the shortcomings of the original Camaro design

But as mentioned above, there’s room for improvement. The AIRAID MXP cold air intake kit starts with the replacement of the restrictive factory housing with a one-piece roto-molded air box that addresses the shortcomings of the original Camaro design. The MXP air box incorporates an aluminum lid that shields the air filter from hot engine air and provides easy serviceability of the air filter.

Housed inside the air box is either an AIRAID SYNTHAFLOW (250-333) or SYNTHAMAX (251-333) air filter, connected to a tuned high-velocity stack to speed air into the intake tube.

The SYNTHAFLOW filter media utilizes multiple layers of cotton gauze combined with a proprietary blend of synthetic materials, resulting in a superior filtration system that allows plenty of free-flowing air for maximum performance, but not at the cost of letting contaminants through. The SYNTHAMAX air filter media consists of an inner and outer layer of wire mesh which will not deform or collapse under high air flow. The inner filter media consists of two layers of proprietary synthetic materials that have separate performance characteristics, designed to work together for a combined function of outstanding air flow (low restriction) and exceptionally high filtration.

Air is directed through a new air intake tube constructed of cross-linked, high-density polyethylene designed using extensive computer modeling to maintain proper mass air flow readings and calibration. This MXP air intake system also features provisions for the factory mass airflow sensor.

Installation of either AIRAID MXP air intake system is fast and simple, with highly-detailed instructions. You need only a few basic tools and not more than a couple of hours to increase the power and responsiveness of your 6.2L Camaro. Cleaning your SYNTHAFLOW and SYNTHAMAX filter is simple: clean your AIRAID filter every 30,000 to 50,000 miles for normal driving, or more often if you’re driving off-road or in heavy dust conditions. If you have a SYNTHAMAX filter, spray it with the AIRAID 790-558 premium dry filter cleaning solution. If you have the SYNTHAFLOW filter, the 790-550 kit combines a bottle of cleaner with a bottle of specially-formulated filter oil.

No need to disassemble the intake system just to clean the filter

The MXP air box incorporates an aluminum lid that provides easy access to the air filter

Both 2016 Camaro SS MXP air intake systems are backed by AIRAID’s “No Hassle” Lifetime Warranty, which is simple. If you are ever dissatisfied with the materials, workmanship or performance of this air filter, call us at 800-498-6951 and we will be happy to assist you. You don’t have to worry about carrying around a warranty card; AIRAID filters are warranted for life.

More Grunt from Your 2006-2007 GMC Duramax When Equipped with an AIRAID Air Intake

The cold air dam houses a massive nine-inch tall filter that can deliver the cool, fresh air

The cold air dam houses a massive nine-inch tall filter that can deliver the cool, fresh air

The GM Duramax LBZ is a 6,599 cc (402.7 CID) turbocharged diesel V8 engine that debuted for the 2006 model year and was available, among other applications, in GMC Sierra trucks until the end of 2007. It is essentially an improved version of the engine it replaced, but with a more sophisticated computer that squeezes out increased power and torque over the previous LLY motor.

The LBZ Duramax features four valves per cylinder in aluminum cylinder heads and an iron block. Bore and stroke are close to square, at 4.06 in (103 mm) x 3.90 in (99 mm) respectively. The 2006-2007 Duramax LBZ produced a class-leading 360 horsepower and 650 lb·ft of torque.

Beyond the revised engine programming, other changes included: cylinder block casting and machining changes to strengthen the bottom of the cylinder bores, more durable main bearing materials, revised pistons that lowers the compression ratio to 16.8:1 from 17.5:1 to compensate for the improved fuel delivery, thicker connecting rod center sections, revised cylinder heads shaped for the best performance from the lower compression, maximum injection pressure increased from 23,000 psi to over 26,000 psi, all new seven hole fuel injectors provide better fuel dispersion, and also now spray directly onto glow plugs for faster cold start, and a more efficient variable-geometry turbocharger that delivers smooth and immediate response and lower emissions.

If there’s one thing that a turbocharged diesel wants more of, it’s intake air. More intake air can be compressed and accordingly the engine’s high-powered computer can add incremental fuel so that the burn is more energetic, producing increased power at the wheels. A fast, simple, and inexpensive way to increase the power of your LBZ-engine Sierra is the installation of an AIRAID 202-189 MXP air intake system.

The 202-189 cold air dam intake kit takes around 90 minutes to install with common hand tools

The 202-189 cold air dam intake kit takes around 90 minutes to install with common hand tools

The entire 202-189 AIRAID MXP air intake system is designed to maintain proper mass air flow readings and calibration through the use of extensive computer modeling. Part of the secret is the cold air dam that addresses the shortcomings of the restrictive factory air box design, while incoming cold air from outside the vehicle is directed through a new air intake tube with a smooth, low-restriction interior thanks to its construction of cross-linked, high-density polyethylene. This MXP air intake system also features provisions for the factory mass air sensor and filter minder gauge, so there’s no need to recalibrate your truck’s ECU.

Another critical factor is the AIRAID premium air filter that’s housed inside the cold air dam providing outstanding air flow and filtration through its reusable, dry, non-woven synthetic filter media. Maintenance of the 202-189 is simple: clean your AIRAID filter every 30,000 to 50,000 miles for normal driving, or more often if you’re driving off-road or in heavy dust conditions, with AIRAID 790-558 premium dry filter cleaning solution.

Installation is of the 202-189 AIRAID MXP air intake system is fast and simple, with highly-detailed instructions. You need only a few basic hand tools and a couple of hours to increase the power and responsiveness of your LBZ-powered GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD truck.

Plus, the 202-189 MXP air intake system is backed by AIRAID’s “No Hassle” Lifetime Warranty, which is simple. If you are ever dissatisfied with the materials, workmanship or performance of this air filter, call us at 800-498-6951 and we will be happy to assist you. You don’t have to worry about a warranty card; AIRAID filters are warranted for life.

The AIRAID 202-189 is designed for the following vehicles:

AIRAID Team Driver Randy Johnson and His Take on this Year's OUSCI

View of Randy Johnson in front of the Orange Peeler Camaro t his shop D&Z Customs

AIRAID team driver, Randy Johnson and the Orange Peeler

AIRAID Team Driver, Randy Johnson, is accustomed to being in the public eye. Whether in print, on television, or even at the track the one of a kind builds that come out of his shop are meant to be played with! D and Z Customs, named after his children Dylan & Zoey, has been featured in and on more than a dozen top performance magazines.

Randy and wife, Tobie, opened their shop in January 2007. Randy’s passion for mechanical tinkering began at a very young age like so many others playing with Hot Wheels and building models. As a boy he spent his days watching and helping friends rebuild classic cars. When he wasn’t working on cars he was buried in his most recent issues of car magazines brushing up on the latest vehicle restoration techniques and dreaming of his next “toy”. His mother now says the only way she could get young Randy interested in reading was to let him read car magazines.

Built by Randy Johnson and D&Z Customs, the Camaro is affectionately known as Orange Peeler

Back in 1993 a friend of Randy's took him to a Porsche Club autocross event and had Randy ride along. From that moment on he was hooked. Back then he started autocrossing his daily driver, a Volkswagen Jetta GLI. Since the early days racing was on and off until 2009, when OUSCI came calling. OPTIMA's Ultimate Street Car Invitational these days is the annual season finale to OPTIMA's Search for the Ultimate Street Car Series. As the series has grown so has the desire to get your hands on a coveted invite. And there are a couple of ways to do that. You can win your way in through a series qualifying events, charm your way in through the Spirit of the Event Award, point your way in at the end of the season having earned enough points or have a car on the SEMA Show floor that captures the attention of the likes of Jimi Day and Cam Douglass of Optima Batteries and receive a Golden Ticket. Back in 2009, the Golden Ticket was the ONLY way to earn an invite to this incredible event. And that's just what Randy Johnson did is his 1970 Camaro. Then he did it again in the AMX built for Jimi Day, affectionately named AMXess. And then again in his 1973 Camaro in 2012. You see where we are going with this. Randy Johnson knows OUSCI.

But wait a minute. In 2014, the crew at OPTIMA introduced a new series that would allow them to double the size of the OUSCI field by introducing qualifying events that would take place all over the country. Once described as USCA, the Ultimate Street Car Association, this series has morphed into an action packed, televised, race reality show with more than 400 drivers having participated to earn a spot in the field of 100 cars that round out OUSCI. Even though the format changed from early days the premise remains the same; get some radical cars out on to the track and see what they can do. With this new format we have seen the competition get a little tougher and the cars get a little faster, year after year. This is definitely the series to race, not just watch!

No stranger to competition, Randy has competed in Goodguys events that focus on challenging the drivers technical abilities, with smaller, tighter courses. He's competed in other events such as Car & Cones, The Midwest Muscle Car Challenge, the Motorstate Challenge where he earned a podium finish, a number of USCA and OSUSC qualifying events with multiple Top 5 finishes, and of course multiple OUSCI events.

He believes in being prepared for competition both on the track and off. That includes maintaining even the simplest of parts right down to his AIRAID universal intake. Being physically fit as well as mentally fit is all part of the game plan. He said that if he's not mentally focused and fit it shows throughout the event when the pressure is on to perform. Randy's been affiliated with the AIRAID brand for the last six years and understands what great performance feels like and he believes AIRAID gives him that extra edge on the track.

The widened front and rear quarters allow for increased width in suspension make for better handling

This year Randy earned his invite to OUSCI based on his stellar performances in his C5 CORVETTE "DZ06". At the various track events he attends he made the decision to not only make his car stand out in the crowd, but he wanted it to out perform the crowd as well! He told us that virtually every part on his "DZ06" Corvette has been changed or modified. It started with an upgrade to a Lingenfelter dry sump 640 HP LS7. Once that was complete he upgraded to a Tremec TR6060 transmission. Then he added the Centerforce twin disc clutch, plus the custom Magnaflow exhaust and Ridetech suspension for optimal handling and ease of adjustability. Then to he added some Wilwood Disc Brakes behind the custom copper Forgeline wheels. And he didn't stop there. The exterior has been highly modified too from the wider front & rear fenders to support increased suspension width, to the custom nose piece and carbon fiber hood. Then he added a one off D&Z Customs spoiler, custom fabricated rear panel & finished it off with a totally custom paint scheme using a candy copper stripe. Randy’s new set-up proved to be a good one for OUSCI this year with his solid finish in the top 20. And the competition this year was fierce.

The 2002 Corvette DZ06 of Randy Johnson's looks fast on the road course too!

But this year didn’t come without some hard lessons. He had been struggling with the ABS system throughout the year, when a loss of brakes at Road America very narrowly averted a real disaster. Needless to say with some long nights and a whole lot of internet searching, he was finally able to diagnose the ABS issue and what a difference it made in his confidence on the track.

Over the years he has learned a lot from his experiences as a performance driver. He's learned what his limitations are and what his cars limitations are! He's also discovered the delicate balance that allows him to keep pushing those limits a bit further each time he gets behind the wheel. This in turn helps him to better serve his customers and sponsors. He's also learned that he enjoys giving back to the racing community and looks forward to doing some instructing in 2017. He recognizes the importance of lending a helping hand to other drivers and said without the support from his wife and kids, he wouldn't be able to do what he truly loves. Randy said it's really friends and family that inspire him to participate and do my very best.

For 2017 Randy Johnson has set some goals for himself and he feels very optimistic. He wants to add to his podium finishes, improve his driving skills and looks forward to positively representing his sponsors and their brands. We asked if there was one thing he could share with his younger self what would that be? "It would be to offer more encouragement. I’d tell myself that yes I was on the right track and to not get discouraged with failures and that in time I’d get better at whatever I set out to do."

Breathe Extra Air Into Select 2010 - 2015 Mustang V6 & V8 Engines With AIRAID Air Filter

850-500 is designed to increase horsepower and acceleration by improving air flow to the engine

AIRAID direct-fit filter is a drop-in replacement for your Mustang's stock paper air filter

Mustang fans rejoiced when Ford introduced a redesigned 2005 model year Mustang at the 2004 North American International Auto Show. The fifth-generation Mustang's styling closely parallels the now hugely popular 1969-1970 fastback models, including the Boss 302. Ford's then senior vice president of design, J Mays, called the Mustang design "retro-futurism."

The 2010 model year Mustang was released in the spring of 2009 with a redesigned exterior which reduced drag by 4% on base models and 7% on GT models. The output of the 4.6L V8 engine in the Mustang GT 4.6 L V8 was raised to 315 horsepower.

There was a wholesale update of engines for the 2011 model year. A new 3.7L aluminum block V6 engine weighed 40 lbs. less than the engine it replaced. With 24 valves and Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing (TiVCT), it produced 305 horsepower, almost as much as the 4.6 L V8 of the previous year. GT models received a new engine as well, the now well-regarded Coyote engine. The 32-valve 5.0L V8 produced 412 horsepower, and served as the basis for the Boss 302 engine that debuted in 2012, which produced 444 horsepower.

Surprisingly, each of these engines, from the 3.7L V6 to the Boss 302 utilizes the same air filter. And an AIRAID 850-500 not only fits each of these Mustangs, but adds performance to boot!

This AIRAID direct-fit replacement filter is a drop-in replacement for your vehicle’s stock paper air filter that is designed to increase horsepower and acceleration by improving air flow into the engine. With more air, the engine computer recognizes it can add more fuel, the result being a more energetic combustion. The air filter is constructed with multiple layers of cotton gauze & non-woven synthetic filter media and provides significant improvements in air flow and filtration compared to typical replacement filters.

A full set of illustrated installation instructions are included with the AIRAID Filter

Everything you need to install an AIRAID filter in your covered Ford Mustang is in the box

And there’s no need to purchase a new paper filter each time the old one gets dirty when you can upgrade to a serviceable AIRAID direct-fit replacement filter for often less than the cost of two stock replacements? Installation takes only a few minutes and is as simple as replacing your stock filter, and the 850-500 is both washable and reusable. To maintain performance, clean your AIRAID filter every 30,000 to 50,000 miles for normal driving, and more frequently if your travel off-road or in heavy dust conditions. The best and easiest way is with the AIRAID 790-558 premium dry filter cleaning solution.

And of course the 850-500 is backed by AIRAID’s “No Hassle” Lifetime Warranty, which is simple. If you are ever dissatisfied with the materials, workmanship or performance of this air filter, call us at 800-498-6951 and we will be happy to assist you. You don’t have to worry about a warranty card; AIRAID filters are warranted for life.

AIRAID Air Intake Adds Horsepower to 2004-2008 Dodge Durango and Chrysler Aspen 5.7 L Hemi

2004 - 2008 Durango and Aspen 5.7 L Hemi SUVs benefit from an Airaid Aire Box System

The AIRAID system replaces the stock filter housing with a large open-air intake for more power

It’s well-known to most enthusiasts that the Chrysler Hemi engine returned in its third iteration in the Dodge RAM pickups in 2000. While not an exact Hemi, as purists like to point out, it has enough in common with the previous two generations (1950s and 1960s) to earn the right to carry that legendary name. And from there we think of the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, and Dodge Challenger all carrying the 5.7 Hemi. But hardly anyone thinks of the Dodge Durango and its twin the Chrysler Aspen as being powered by the same 5.7L Hemi.

If you’re in the market for a pre-owned mid-sized SUV with plenty of power (or if you already own one), you could do much worse than a 2004 to 2008 Durango or Aspen. Do a quick online search on a 2008 Durango and you’ll find all the leading automotive used car ranking sites give the Durango between four to five stars out of five (the same goes for the Aspen).

Of course, the original rating of 345 horsepower might seem a little low compared with newer models from many other manufacturers, but we have a solution: an AIRAID 302-143 AIRAID air intake system, which will increase horsepower and torque.

The cold air intake system replaces the restrictive factory air filter housing with a large open-air inlet shielded by cold air dam panels. This air box system connects to the factory air intake tube, as well as adding additional cold air passages directed to the filter. Together they provide a steady, free-flowing supply of cooler outside air into your engine. The cold air dam panels also keep the filter isolated from engine compartment heat by sealing to the underside of the hood via blade-style rubber weather stripping.

The Air Box System replaces the restrictive factory air intake system, increasing horsepower

The AIRAID air box system feeds additional air into your engine while sealing out power-robbing heat

The AIRAID premium filter used in the 302-143 kit is a high performance air filter constructed of multiple layers of complementary filter media combined with AIRAID’s proprietary filtration technology resulting in a superior filtration system. AIRAID premium filters efficiently filter dirt particles in a way in which ordinary cotton-gauze performance filters cannot.

The AIRAID air box system is easy to install with common hand tools, and can be under the hood of your Durango or Aspen in less than a Saturday morning. Oh, and if you happen to own a 2004 – 2006 Dodge Durango with the 4.7 L non-Hemi V8, this kit will fit your SUV as well, improving its performance and response.

And AIRAID’s "No Hassle" Lifetime Warranty is simple. If you are ever dissatisfied with the materials, workmanship or performance of this air filter, just give us a call at 800-498-6951 and we will be happy to assist you. You don’t have to worry about a warranty card. AIRAID filters are warranted for life.
