T-Rex Grilles: An American Original

By John M. Arnaud

Southern California–based T-Rex Grilles might be a relative newcomer to Performance Corner, but the company has been pumping out cutting-edge grille designs for nearly two decades. With a variety of series to choose from—X-Metal, Torch LED, Graphic, and Billet, to name a few—T-Rex has a style to fit your aesthetic.

Last week Performance Corner had T-Rex National Sales Manager Tom Ameduri in the office to share ideas, swap stories, and build a more effective partnership. Tom learned about all the programs we’ve put together to support local jobbers, and we discovered a few things as well. Like when T-Rex says its products are made in America, they really mean it: everything, from materials and labor to manufacturing and shipping boxes, originates domestically. The company is also ramping up production with a faster, more efficient laser cutter.

We love having these meetings because they give us the chance to connect people with people, from warehouse distributors and manufacturers to all of us here at headquarters and our nationwide network of aftermarket jobbers. Thanks for coming out to see us, Tom: without the support of manufacturers like T-Rex, our program wouldn’t be possible!

Putting in Work with Putco

By John M. Arnaud

Known for its broad range of truck and SUV accessories, Putco is a giant in the truck aftermarket industry—and rightly so. From bed rails, grilles, and aesthetic trim to protective finishes and an astonishing selection of premium lighting, Putco has something for just about anyone wanting to set their pickup apart.

That’s why Performance Corner was thrilled to have National Sales Manager Scott Majors and Western Regional Sales Manager Desia Anderson in house to talk shop and get a sneak peek at what’s coming down the pike on Putco’s production schedule. (Don’t ask, we can’t tell you…yet!) What we CAN say is that we have Putco down to shoot some In the Garage and AAM University videos next year, so you can look forward to detailed installations as well as some educational series straight from the horse’s mouth.

Many thanks to Scott and Desia for taking the time to come out to see us. Without the support of manufacturers like Putco, our program wouldn’t be possible!

MSD (2700): Atomic AirForce Manifold for 2014-2015 Chevrolet Corvette LT1

If you’re looking for bolt-on power and torque for your new LT1, the new Atomic AirForce intake manifold from MSD is the answer! This all-new polymer intake will increase the performance of stock and modified versions of the Direct-Injected LT1 engine.

MSD initiated the clean-sheet AirForce design by addressing the performance shortcomings of the OEM manifold. Through the use of Computational Fluid Dynamic modeling, MSD was able to optimize the plenum volume and improve runner layout. Unique bell-mouthed runner openings, optimum runner length, and minimal shrouding ensure maximum airflow and cylinder-to-cylinder balance.

The LT1 intake is a two-piece molded design that allows for porting and runner modification, while the polymer construction minimizes weight and heat absorption. MSD also made it easy to accommodate power adders by equipping the AirForce LT1 manifold with integral port fuel injection bosses at the base of each runner.

The AirForce LT1 intake accepts an OEM electronic throttle body as well as aftermarket electronic throttles up to 105 mm.

The company boasts the number-one-selling chassis harness in addition to a variety of fuel injection management systems and other electrical components.

K&N (71-2545): Blackhawk Induction Air Intake System

The K&N 71-2545 Blackhawk Induction Air Intake System for the 2011-2016 Challenger/Charger/300 6.4L is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air intake system that is guaranteed to gain power. It replaces your vehicle’s restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing. This low-restriction system allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air than it would from the stock air intake. More air means more power and acceleration. This product comes with black components including a K&N high-flow air filter and heat shield. The tube features an attractive, textured, black powder-coated finish and an engraved K&N plate welded on–creating a clean, high-performance look under the hood. The intake tube accommodates the factory air temperature sensor and crank case vent hose. The oversized cone-shaped air filter is made from an oil-free synthetic filter medium that can be used for up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is needed, depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install, usually only 90 minutes or less using existing factory mounting points and commonly available tools.

Note: Cannot be sold in California and not legal for use in California or other states adopting California emission standards.
