We present a little plumbing knowledge and Fragola Performance System’s top ten tips every enthusiast should know about proper plumbing, focusing on techniques that consumers need to know when plumbing a car for performance applications.
In this tech piece, we’ll take a look at the differences between the two oiling methods, look at the components utilized in both systems, educate on the lesser-understood dry sump avenue, and answer the question “when and why should I dry sump my engine”?

The first mod many of us do to our cars is a cold air intake. We got with JLT and Brenspeed to install a JLT intake kit for a 2013 along with a custom tune from Brenspeed using SCT’s new iTSX. We then strapped the ’13 on our Dynojet and took it to Irwindale for some eighth mile track testing.

Canton has engineered these new Coyote oil pans to provide not only an added degree of oiling function, but much effort has been targeted at the form side of things, and the result is three top-of-the-line oil pans to fit virtually any application for which you can drop a 5.0L Coyote powerplant into.
Every garage, engine builder, or race team has a torque wrench, and we all use it a considerable bit! But when was the last time you gave more than a moments glance at your torque wrench?

There’s no denying that piston engines shake, some more than others. The vibration that is created by an engine has to be controlled somehow, and this is the reason why torsional dampers exist. But what are dampers? Is their power to be found by having the correct one for your application?

A new series of hydraulic roller camshafts from Comp Cams delivers four different grinds on the same stick to equalize airflow on 4-barrel manifolds. Called the 4-Pattern, the new cams draw heavily from Comp’s experience with NASCAR teams. They’re available for small- and big-block Chevys and small-block Fords.
When you need a custom or trick damper for your race car or street/strip machine, ATI has custom solutions that can reduce weight, clutter, and total number of parts, and perhaps improve overall engine output and increase engine longevity.
Rather than hide what makes an engine work, we’d prefer to embrace the chaos and turn it into something that looks and functions better than new. One way to accomplish that is with a complete race-spec plumbing makeover, but the expense of replacing every bit of rubber can be prohibitive…
