October 5th, 2009 5 comments

23 year old Matt Brookshier of the L.A. Chapter Nokturnal Car Club truly has a passion for modifying cars with style and performance. His love for cars began from childhood. “My family has always been into cars,” said Brookshier. “My brother built his first muscle car in the early 90′s, and ever since then, I have been interested in building my own.” Brookshier’s first car was a 1987 Chevrolet Camaro IROC. “After high school I met some guys that shared my love for cars and they had a unique style,” he said. “I knew right away that this was the beginning of a new hobby building cars to display at DUB shows.”

Matt Brookshier’s latest project is a 2007 Chevy Avalanche. This unique Avalanche has an upper and lower E&G Classic mesh grill, suede & vinyl throughout the cab with custom matched doors and panels, 26″ Dub Bombers wheels wrapped in Kuhmo Ecstas, a full air ride with dual port Parker valves leading to a 4 ply Contech bag, 1″ bullet proof plexiglass in the bed to protect the Alpine sound system and many other modifications.

This 5.3 liter Avalanche is equipped with an AEM Brute Force Intake System 21-8023DP. “I have been using AEM for about a year now,” said Brookshier. “I prefer the dry filter over an oiled filter. The AEM intake has performed great and gives me the extra horsepower I lost when I installed the 26″ wheels. Installation was very simple. I did it myself.”

Brookshier’s custom 2007 Avalanche has attended a number of local cruises and car shows as well as DUB L.A., DUB Phoenix, DUB San Jose and the Ludikrs Car and Truck Show.

The upcoming car and truck show season will bring more exciting ideas and creative perspective to a rapidly growing industry. “I have a few ideas in mind for next year,” said Brookshier. “We’ll have to wait and see what is in store for the future.”

Matt Brookshier’s 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche with a 5.3L engine has the following modifications:

Engine – AEM Brute Force Intake (#21-8023DP), Color Matched Engine Cover, Front Radiator Cover and Fuse panel, 260 amp dual alternators powering dual batteries.


Exterior – Color Matched exterior plastic pieces and lower front valance, All of the emblems were taken off, the front Chevy emblem was colored match along with upper and lower E&G Classic mesh grille, 8K HID headlights, and covering the sound system in the bed area is a 1″ thick plexi glass which is also bullet proof.


Interior – Sting Ray and Elephant inserts, suede and vinyl throughout the cab with double white stitching, Custom color matched plastic doors and panels.

Suspension – 26″ Dub Bombers wheels wrapped in Kuhmo Ecstas, full air ride with dual port parker values leading to a 4 ply contech bag, feeding the air are 2 (9) gallon tanks and 1 (5) gallon tank which is filled by 4 (380) ViAir compressors, the truck hops 1 foot in the front on compressed air with NO BOTTLE.


Audio and Video – 4 Alpine 12″ Type X Subs and 3 sets of Type X components, 5 Alpine Amplifiers with everything fiber glassed in the bed, 2 15″ TVs custom fitted on the tailgate, each door panel has a 17″ TV on it, each seat has a 11.4″ TV, both visors are 12.2″ with a 7″ in-dash receiver, and topping it off is a 17″ flip down.


Courtesty AEM.

2006-2009 Honda Civic 1.8L Get 4 Horsepower with AEM’s New 21-686C Cold Air Intake

September 22nd, 2009 No comments

AEM 21-686C Performance AEM Cold Air Intake System for 2006-2009 Honda Civic with the 1.8L engine.

The infamous Honda Civic… this car has been around for as long as most of us can remember. Honda first introduced the Civic as a two-door coupe in the early 70’s and ever since its release the Civic has been one of the best-selling compact cars of all time. Fast-forward almost 40 years and the Civic attracts a variety of drivers. You can see the Civic being driven by anyone from young adults that recognize its sporty side to elderly folks that want a car with good MPGs.

Well, a small displacement engine such as the Civic’s 1.8-liter four cylinder that gets good gas mileage (~29 MPG) often leaves the driver with a desire for more power. In the case of the Civic, there happens to be additional horsepower ready to be unleashed. AEM recognized the car’s need for an air intake system and designed a Cold Air Intake System for the 2006-09 Honda Civic with the 1.8-liter engine (part number 21-686C). During the design phases, AEM was able to not only design a more efficient air intake system that looks and sounds great but also squeeze additional horsepower from the 1.8-liter powerplant.

The new AEM 21-686C Cold Air Intake System completely replaces the restrictive factory intake system of the Honda Civic. By replacing the factory airbox and air filter with a mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube that optimizes airflow and filtration more power was gained. AEM’s dyno tests have recorded a 4 horsepower increase at 3,800 RPM on the 2006-09 Honda Civic 1.8L. This increase in horsepower brings the stock baseline power of 98 wheel horsepower up to 102 wheel horsepower with the AEM 21-686C Cold Air Intake System installed.

The 21-686C intake routes an AEM Dryflow 21-201DK air filter in the wheel well where the air filter can draw cool air safely. The 21-201DK air filter features a flange inside diameter of 2.5-inches (64mm) and an overall height of 5.125-inches (130mm). The oil-free DRYFLOW technology is extremely durable and easy to clean.

Takeda USA Releases a Retain Short Ram Intake for the 06-09 Lexus IS250/IS350 V6-2.5L/3.5L

September 17th, 2009 No comments

Part Number: TR-2004P

The Takeda Retain Short Ram air intake replaces the bulky and inefficient factory intake by increasing air volume and improving air velocity for increased horsepower, torque, and improved throttle response.

The TR-2004P utilizes specially designed clear coat polished aluminum intake tubes to guide the air into the motor and provide an aggressive style. Takeda air intakes use the brand new Pro Dry S filter from aFe, which uses a progressive synthetic media, requiring no oil to recharge for maximum convenience and filtration. The Pro Dry S filter is 99.2% efficient so it prevents all of the dirt and debris from entering the motor.

The TR-2004P comes with a lifetime warranty and come complete with polished aluminum tubes, Pro Dry S performance air filter, Urethane couplers, clamps and all hardware necessary for a simple installation.

In recent testing, part number TR-2004P produced an astonishing 13hp and 11ft. lbs. of torque and increased air flow by 22% over the factory vehicle.

AEM Introduces Cold Air Intake System for 2005-2008 Audi A4 2.0L Turbo B7

September 9th, 2009 No comments

The European segment within the Sport Compact community has made a huge impact in the automotive scene. Exciting releases from renowned Euro manufacturers have helped to fuel the Euro markets popularity to another level. Such releases include the 1-Series BMW stuffed with a six-cylinder twin-turbo engine and the V8-powered E92 BMW M3. Even a couple years back, Volkswagen stirred up the industry with their R32 while Audi showed what dreams are made of with the Audi R8.

AEM’s new Cold Air Intake System for the 2005.5-2008 Audi A4 2.0L Turbo (PN: 21-681C)

Along with great cars, the Euro community brings a style that is proprietary to their clique as well. Often times, this Euro-inspired look ignites others in the sport compact community to adopt the Euro style or technique of tuning. A handful of key Euro styling trademarks are now considered mainstream to import and domestic enthusiasts alike. Extremely clean lines, subtle exterior arrangements, ridiculously-low ride heights and aggressively-deep offset wheels are all style queues that we can thank the European enthusiasts for.

Another gift that came from the Euro scene in the mid nineties was the compact Audi A4. Since the German car manufacturer introduced the A4 model in 1994, the A4 has become a staple in the European car lineup. The A4 chassis is offered in a variety of configurations. It is available in front-wheel drive or in Audi’s ”Quattro” permanent four-wheel drive system. The A4 is also available as a sedan (saloon), a wagon (Avant), and previously as a convertible (Cabriolet). Performance spinoffs of the A4 are also offered, such as the slightly higher performance Audi S4 and of course the race inspired Audi RS4.

For enthusiasts looking to get into a European vehicle, the 2005-2008 (B7 chassis) of the Audi A4 is a great option. The popular engine choice for the B7 would be Audi’s 2.0-liter turbocharged FSI (Fuel Stratified Injection) powerplant. This engine features an increased power output from previous years bringing power up to 200 horsepower. An excellent way to increase the performance of the Audi A4′s 2.0 TFSI engine is AEM’s newly-released Cold Air Intake System, Part Number 21-681C.

AEM’s 21-681C Cold Air Intake System for the 2005.5 (from 5/05) to 2008 Audi A4 2.0L is CARB exempt for these models which means it is 50 state street legal. The intake features a semi-closed heat shield design, a powder coated gun metal gray finish, and a DRYFLOW air filter. AEM engineers created a heat shield that fits snugly into the space between the right headlight and exhaust manifold with the turbocharger. The engineers also took the extra step of molding a heat shield that fits both HID headlight equipped and non-HID headlight equipped models. To withstand the high engine bay temperatures seen under the hood of the Audi, AEM has covered the heat shields in a durable powder coated black finish. Connecting directly to the turbo inlet, the AEM kit includes a smooth mandrel-bent aluminum inlet pipe that replaces the restrictive factory equipment from filter to turbo. Once the intake pipe is connected to the turbo inlet with the supplied transition coupler, the other end is topped with an AEM DRYFLOW 21-202DK performance air filter. The 21-202DK air filter’s construction consists of an inside diameter of 2.75-inches (70mm) by a height of 5.25-inches (133mm). Another nice feature of the AEM Audi A4 intake is the retention of the factory fresh air duct which draws in cool air from the front fascia of the A4.
