Toytec Suspension Upgrades on a 2016 Toyota 4Runner

We recently did a nice suspension upgrade on our customer’s 2016 Toyota 4Runner. The vehicle is used as a daily driver but our customer also enjoys off-roading it on the weekends. Finding the balance between a daily driver and a dedicated off-road Toyota can be challenging. Personal preference and needs come into play, and there is no right or wrong approach to this.

AJW Performance is an authorized Toytec Suspension dealer, and Toytec makes a bunch of great options for, you guessed it; Toyota!

We had a customer give us a call about upgrading the suspension on his 2009 335xi. With blown shocks making the handling and ride quality unbearable, it was time to upgrade to ISC Suspension N1 coilovers!

The ISC Suspension E90 xDrive coilovers (part number B005-4) offer 32 way dampening adjustment as well as ride height adjustment and 3 separate valving options.

06 STI OEM Motor build pt. 2

After making a solid list of everything that was needed to get this car back on the road, parts started showing up! We started with assembling the heads and making sure all the valves/buckets had the proper clearances. Once we had our measurements the proper buckets were ordered.9b1bc56a-9852-49ae-b53f-4787904ed47c_zpsjvkheoxr-1

Next we started working on the brand new short block and started installing all of the short block parts. A brand new oil cooler and oil pump are on!

After the heads and block are assembled, its time to piece them together with a set of ARP head studs!

06 STI OEM Motor build pt. 1

We received a phone call from a car dealer in New England with some terrible news. They had a very clean 2006 STI that developed a noticeable knock.  They were referred to us from a previous motor build customer, which we always appreciate!

It is never fun to see such a clean car break, but as always we are ready to tackle the job! We received the car and began the tear down process. The oil pan was full of different size bits of metal, we could tell this wasn’t going to be pretty. After removing the motor from the car and separating the heads from the block, this is what we found in cylinder 3:

Perrin has just release their latest version of their Equal Length Headers. This time they have dubbed them the E4-Series. This series of headers comes in a normal sized Equal Length variant as well as a Big Tube Variant that makes more Horespower. Both are lovely looking pieces and have Perrin’s quality welds and are made of 304 Stainless Steel. Perrin has always impressed us, and that’s why we use a lot of their products. We still currently have their previous version of the big tube headers on our RSTi.

Product Spotlight: 08-14 WRX and STi Coilovers by ISC Suspension

We talk about ISC Suspension a lot here at AJW Performance it’s primarily because we are such huge fans of their products! ISC Suspension has been creating quality and affordable coilovers for quite a few years now. They know what people want and they find ways to give it to them without breaking the bank or cutting corners. Their coilovers for the 2008 – 2014 WRX and STi are no exception. These two vehicles (WRX, and STi) have been huge sellers for Subaru in the past few years. The GE, GV, GH, and GR have been some of the best sellers for AJW Performance over the past few years. Primarily we see the most demand coming from the GR and GV crowd. Introducing the Widebody to the WRX was a great move on Subaru, and allowed Subaru owners with WRX’s to have a great looking car with a little bit more wheel base.

ISC Suspension now Offering BRZ/FRS Drift Bars!

ISC Suspension is always coming out with new and innovative products. To continue their drifting oriented products and following a great year of Clubloose North Drifting they are now release the Drift Bar that they used during the season to the public. This Drift Bar is amde of the same material and in the same process as the one that was on their drift BRZ. It’s a solid piece and looks and feel great on the car. It fits right under the front bumper like an OEM crash bar and is much more secure than the bar that the car comes with. It is worthwhile to note that this is for people who drift or track their car. This is not a replacement for the OEM crash bar and has not been tested in front end collisions. However it is great for avoiding barriers as well as tire barriers :).

ISC Suspension Releases Ford Mustang Coilover Suspension Kits

The boys and girls at ISC Suspension have done it again. This time they have released a new coilover kit for the 2015-2016 Ford Mustang. The New Ford Mustang has really been a head turner as more and more tuners turn to Mustangs and other Ford vehicles. Ford has really begun to turn heads with their recent addition of the Ecoboost Mustang, Focus ST, and coming soon, the Focus RS. These Mustang Coilovers are really incredible and we’re excited to have them in our store!
