Brand Spotlight: Remus

By Todd Schafer on January 30, 2014

CEO of Remus Exhaust Angelika Kresch

Remus, one of the premier sport exhaust systems distributors in the world, started from humble beginnings in 1990.  The company had little more than a flyer and a plan when Remus CEO Angelika Kresch’s husband went to the Frankfurt IAA Auto Show in September 1990.

He promised prospective clients a delivery schedule of Christmas 1990 without even having a production hall completed.  The five employees that Remus had at the time, which included Mrs. Kresch and her husband, worked to the bone 24/7 to meet their clients’ demands while simultaneously growing their business and improving their products and production techniques.

Five years later, the fruits of their labors paid off.  Remus had made a name for itself and has continued to grow exponentially over [...]

aftermarket intercooler

By Todd Schafer on January 25, 2014

Installing an aftermarket intercooler can substantially increase the performance of the engine by 5% to 10% with a reduction in temperature levels of about 35 degrees to 40 degree centigrade.  Though after an aggressive drive the intercooler might face issues of heating up.  A basic tip of tuner activity in this sphere is that the larger the size of the intercooler the longer it can avoid soaking up heat on the engine and getting too hot.  Many companies make quality aftermarket intercoolers including AEM, APR, Agency Power, Alta Performance, Evolution Motorsports, HKS, Injen and Perrin.

This brief guide is only a vanilla version, not specifying any particular model car or intercooler.  Your actual install will probably be somewhat different.  It is intended to give you a idea of what you will be required to do if you decide to take on this upgrade.

By Todd Schafer on January 21, 2014

I firmly believe there are some things you just don’t buy online – like a new or used vehicle. Some things you have to hold in your hands before you make the purchase to ensure you’re getting what you want. But if you shouldn’t buy a car online, then why would you buy car parts online? Today I’m going to go over the pros and cons of buying aftermarket parts online so that you can decide whether or not doing so is a good idea for you.

Pros:

The most obvious reason to buy aftermarket parts online is because they’re cheaper. You get to choose from a wide range of vendors who are competing with each other for your business and driving the price of their goods down for your convenience. That doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed to find the part you want for less online, but with a [...]
