What Is A Super Steer And How Does It Work?

The Original PERRIN Part... Uppipe...

The term uppipe, where did this come from?  Definitely not from Subaru, but most likely from some crazy Subaru Enthusiast.  Where ever this term came from, I remember first seeing the term use on I-Club forums (now known as NASIOC).  This strange part people were calling an Uppipe is what drove me to start coming up with high performance parts for Subarus. Over the years I have this term so much that I added it to my Microsoft Word Dictionaries. […Continue Reading…]

The PERRIN PWI-1 system stood out amongst competitive systems because of it being one of the first truly progressive water injection systems. The new PWI-2 is still just as progressive as the older system but it stands out from the crowd for a few other reasons. Less expensive non-progressive systems are simple and cheap, and are restricted to a fixed volume of water that can be delivered.  These systems […Continue Reading…]

Foam Filter Q&A, why they are the best.

Everyone has an air filter on their engine (at least you should!) and this goes true for all types of things that that suck in air constantly.  Yes even you have a filter; your nose has them built into it as does your air passageway.  But we are talking about your car here which sucks in way more air than you do, so it has much more special filtering needs.  Also we are talking about a filter for your performance […Continue Reading…]

We finally got around to retesting all our parts on the new 09 JCW.  WE have very good results on our 07 and 08 R56 Minis when we tested every single ALTA part back to back.  To this day we have proven these results over and over again with customer cars and new R56’s we purchased. You will see below once again we have proven the same parts on this new 09 JCW. We have learned  a few things over […Continue Reading…]
