fluid_film

For those that are not familiar with Fluid Film, it is an oil like substance that is used to coat the underneath of your vehicle. This is much better than products like PUR 15 and other undercaotings that don’t last and don’t prevent rust. Fluid Film is used by many businesses to protect vehicles and multiple surfaces. It’s a simple once a year application and is cheap and reliable!

As seen in the video above Fluid Film has many different uses and applications. The fact that it can be used as a lubricant and a undercoating show how unique it is. It’s truley a revolutionary product that can really save you thousands of dollars down the road. In New England Salt and Stand can really corrode and destroy vehicles. Thanks to Fluid Film that problem is solved.

Here is another video showing Fluid Films effectiveness after 3 months. As you can see water just flows right off of it and does not allow anything to get to the actual Metal. This is exactly what you want to protect your vehicle and AJW Performance is bringing it to the table for customers here in New Hampshire.

So what are you waiting for? We have open availability now for Fluid Film services! Stop by the shop on October 23, 2015 to get the service for 50% off or $50.00! Call us today at 603-715-9076 or e-mail us at info@ajwperformanceproducts.com or sales@ajwperformanceproducts.com

Product Spotlight: ISC Coilover Covers

Some History on ISC Coilover Covers:

About a year ago the product development team sat down to try and come up with an idea for something that would help to prevent the damage that coilovers experience during New England winters. After going back and forth with a few ideas the team came up with a plan to develop something simple but effective. The end result was the ISC Coilover Cover or to some people the coilover “sock”. This Coilover Cover is made of neoprene, the same material that many manufacturers use in their wet suits. On one side you have the ISC logo and on the other a strip of strong velcro. While the velcro enclosure is enough to keep the Coilover Cover on, zip ties are also included for added security.

300MMCOILCOV 370MMCOILCOV

The first testing of these covers were on a backcountry snowmobile. These sleds experience lots of exposure to the elements and after a whole winter with these covers on the sled’s coilovers looked like new. We also had our employees run them on their personal vehicles, and the results were really impressive. Much less surface corrosion than without through a pretty rough winter this past year in New Hampshire.
300MMCOILCOV_1
While the point of these covers was originally protection from winter elements it does not mean that they are not usable or beneficial for use in areas that do not experience snow. These covers also keep sand, dust, dirt, mud, and other natural elements away from the threads of your coilover shafts. At ISC we wanted to create a product that would be affordable and help people save money. We have received a lot of feedback over the past year that has been overwhelmingly positive! Below are some quick facts vs fiction on our coilover covers.

FACT: ISC Coilover Covers are designed to withstand natural elements like sand and moisture.
FACT: ISC Coilover Covers are strong and affordable.
FACT: ISC Coilover Covers work on almost ALL major coilovers.

FICTION: Coilover Covers are only useful for people in the winter.
FICTION: Coilover Covers don’t last long
FICTION: Coilover Covers only fit ISC Coilovers

Get prepped with some Coilover Covers. These are available now with a rebate on ISC’s store or for 15% off. Visit them at http://iscsuspension-na.com

Corsa Performance Exhausts w/ $50 Rebate

AJW Performance now offers Corsa Performance exhausts and from now until December 31, 2015 they are offering a $50 rebate. This makes for a great deal since these exhausts are super high quality. Rebates have been a big thing this year for manufacturers to promote sales so we want to try and get them out to our customers as much as possible.

Some people may not be familiar with Corsa Performance in relation to import vehicles however they have been in business since 1998. Corsa Performance exhausts feature premium stainless steel construction including hangers and CNC cases. They also utilize Corsa’s no drone RSC technology, madrel bends, Torca clamps, and special pro series tips. These tips are usually offered in stainless steel or black diamond. Corsa also uses precision MIG, TIG, and Robotic welding for the best durability and aesthetic appeal. Corsa Performance’s RSC or Reflective Sound Cancellation Technology ensures that their exhausts do not drone. Corsa is world renowned for their ability to manufacture exhausts that have zero drone and sound great!

Corsa rebate

Corsa Performance currently makes exhausts for a few different Subarus mainly modern variants. Their 2015 WRX and STi Exhausts sounds wonderful! They also have exhausts for the 08-14 Subaru WRX and STi Sedan and Hatchback.

Below you will find some sound clips for the 2015 STi and the 2015 WRX.

Both exhausts sound great and one of the biggest advantages to these exhaust is that there is NO DRONE. Other exhausts will give you a headache after driving with them for so long due to the drone but with Corsa Performance you get an exhaust that flows 60-68% better than stock as well as eliminating Drone.

To stay true to our Subaru Roots we have decided that our first sale will be a stage 2 power package for 08-14 WRX and 08-15 STi Owners! The 08-14 WRX and STi have been very popular, and in 2011 became even more sought after with the addition of a widebody for the WRX. 08-10 WRX’s are considered “narrow bodies” while 11+ are “wide bodies”. The 2015 STi while on a different chassis still utilizes many of the same parts.

These packages are for catless variants, however we do offer catted and other brands of downpipes as well.

Exclusive to Canada, the 2014 Subaru WRX STI Tsurugi Edition brought a new level of sophistication to the WRX STI lineup. This potent 4-door delivered more comfort and included exciting new features such as luxurious leather seating, distinct 18-inch Enkei wheels and a 10-inch Kicker® subwoofer to name but a few. The vehicle was limited to 500 models, and our graphic designer could think of no better car to use for the flyer for our ad geared towards the GR Chassis WRX and STi! It’s name comes from Tsurugi which in Japanese culture is a double sided sword. The meaning was meant to symbolize performance and luxury all in one. A double hitter! (Source: Subaru.CA)

Klaus Schuler Rotated Build

After a long night of hard work, determination, and intensity we have finished Kalus Schuler Jrs Motor build! The build like every build comes with its fair share of challenges however we were able to successfully provide Klaus Jr with a motor that can easily put down 450 WHP. On the break in map the car made over 300 WHP at just 14 PSI. That’s impressive, and the GTX3076R is a formidable turbocharger! Below you will find a list of modifications that we used for Kalus’s build to get him to his goal. The primary item backing this enormous amount of power was Klaus’s Perrin Rotated Kit. These kits are special order items only, however with Perrin’s rotated tuner kit you can choose your own turbo and waste gate for some customization!

Klaus Schuler Rotated Build

Klaus came to us with a Spun rod bearing! He decided that this time he wanted to go big, and we mean really big! After a lot of discussions with the AJW Performance team Klaus decided to go with a rotated turbo kit from Perrin Performance and a GTX3076R a big massive Turbocharger! Kalus also utilized various supporting mods such as a brand new STi BBBB short block with Manley forged pistons. He also went this some MSI fuel rails, Perrin headers, and more! We will cover more of Klaus’s build in the next blog dedicated to this car. We are going for a reliable 450 WHP, so we’re pretty excited to see this build come together so quickly!

Kyle installs the new ACL Orbit Oil pickup onto the motor. Orbit performance oil pumps are designed with high output and volume capabilities required for high RPM performance engines (see flow data chart). The gerotors are precision machined from steel-copper alloy (FC0205), an exceptionally durable metal that assures dependability and durability. Tight housing and gerotor tolerances provide optimum pressure and flow requirements. Housings are die cast DC-12 aluminum and are anodized to prevent corrosion. All pumps are individually inspected and tested.

Motor Build for Casey Cobb

Hello again everyone! For you who follow our blog you know we JUST finished up a motor build for Jason Nelson. Around the time we finished that motor build we began interacting with Casey Cobb who had spun a bearing in his EJ255. Spun bearings can be common with Subaru WRX/STis as well as ringland failure and slew of other issues. Casey came to us trying to make a budget of about $6,000 dollars and was hopeful that we could get his motor up and running for that price.

We sat down and discussed the available options on what we could do, some things would have to be skipped like replacing the pistons for forged ones, and head machining was to be kept at a minimum. We were able to fit in some good pieces though such as a Killer B Oil pickup, and baffle. We also utilize a brand new STi short block, and Casey’s heads were clean enough that we were able to provide a thorough cleaning to them to keep them from failing. While this was not the ideal situation, we understand what it is like to build on a budget. Casey wanted to get the car back and running and was eager to get the car back.

This was a truly special feat, and we were able to finish this build in only one and a half weeks. Some shops have a waiting time of over 2 months! Thankfully we were able to get Casey in fast and get the parts here even quicker. When Casey dropped the car off we already had almost all of the parts here. Parts that we did not have were available within 2 days!

4E3CD65B-918F-4B69-BEA6-FEEA5CD9D9B5_zpskf4lh2ib

Above: Casey’s motor close to completion and ready to be dropped in.

Casey decided on the following parts at the end of the day for his Motor Build:

STi Short Block BBBB

OEM Subaru Gasket Kit

Killer B Oil Pickup

Killer B Oil Baffle

Torque Solutions Timing Belt Guide

Subaru STi Oil Pump

Subaru Blue Coolant

Gates Timing Belt Kit

One Step Colder Plugs

Perrin Pitch Stop Mount

OEM Subaru Clutch and Flywheel

Below you will find various photos of Casey’s motor and vehicle through stages of repair. We’re excited to get the car back in Casey’s hands so that he can enjoy it!
