Internal combustion is best in high-fidelity.
It’s a never ending debate; who makes the best sounding V8 engine. Could it be the new Shelby GT350 Mustang, or perhaps a 40 year old Detroit Diesel 8V92? Perhaps you have an affinity for small-displacement European V8s or an oddball 2-stroke Johnson Outboard boat engine? It’s a topic that once broached can lead to hours clicking the next recommended video on YouTube.

SVTP wraps up its coverage of PRI 2016.
PRI 2016 was chock full of go-fast goodies, and it’s safe to say that 2017 should be a pretty fruitful year for gearheads. Our friends at Race Star are introducing a fantastic looking set one-piece forged wheels, and BMR is entering a new market with their Fox-Body rear lower control arms. To cap it off Watson racing has a slew of new race parts aimed at the 1/4 mile crowd.
Race Parts Wonderland
SVTP takes you inside the best show of the year.
If SEMA has become a car show then PRI is definitely a car-parts-show. The annual Performance Racing Industry Tradeshow is easily one of my favorite events on the calendar. There you will find everything from hard-core racing parts, to blowers, to exhaust, to safety equipment, to machine tools, to celebrities. If you love go-fast parts and turning wrenches then this is the place for you.

The annual SEMA show is always a good time, but for me personally one of the highlights is seeing what our SVTP Vendors have been working on. The size of the show always makes finding all the booths you want to see a bit of a scavenger hunt, but the reward make all the walking worth it. You truly never know what you’ll see, but chances are it’ll be something awesome that you want (such as the Batmobile).
OEMRadio’s audio system rids the Track Pack cars of their anemic 4″ screens.
Jesse from OEMRadio ([email protected]) is providing a solution for the rather weak factory four inch screen/”entertainment” system. Stock is woefully inadequate at best as much as many rationalize that they don’t listen to the radio anyway. IMHO, a great performing pony car doesn’t have to be a one dimensional experience. A 14hr jaunt to Georgia affirmed my own discontent after growing weary from squinting at my cell phone for navigation purposes. The 4″ system would be right at home in a Mustang GT, circa 1993, but not on 2016 GT350.
