The guys over at ChevyHardcore / CorvetteOnline did an install of the aFe CONTROL PFADT Series FeatherLight Coilovers on their C5 Corvette back in 2014. After 3 years of daily driving, it was time to refresh these PFADT Coilovers, and they came along to see what all is involved.
The beauty of the PFADT Coilovers is that they are designed to be rebuilt and refreshed, taking the performance back to a brand new setup. From the article:
"With our Featherlight dampers rebuilt and back on Project Y2k, we’ve restored the outstanding handling and precise adjustability we loved so much when they were first installed. If you’re considering a switch to a coilover suspension, keep in mind that aFe’s are designed to allow the components subject to wear to be replaced when needed. If you’re already coilover-equipped but have noticed your car doesn’t have quite the same spring in its step that it used to, do yourself a favor and get them brought back to life with a rebuild."

aFe POWER engineers have been having fun this week when the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor entered the building. Teams from Intake, Exhaust, Tuning and Suspension were working alongside each other to begin measuring and prototyping new performance products for the new 450hp 3.5L Twin Turbo EcoBoost, different from it's base model F-150 cousin.
aFe POWER SCORCHER GT 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Tuning Module
The SCORCHER GT is a plug and play module capable of adding horsepower and torque with a 30 minute installation. Check out the dyno chart below, and compare the baseline Raptor dyno test to the initial results from the aFe SCORCHER. Final tuning has not been completed, but we already have a solid gain of +30hp and +27 lbs. ft of torque at the wheels!

aFe POWER Momentum GT 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Cold Air Intake System
The aFe Intake Team has already CAD designed and 3D printed a Momentum GT Series Cold Air Intake prototype for the 2017 F-150 Raptor and testing is underway. The Momentum GT Air Intake Systems feature an extremely large air filter, designed to increase the air flow and incorporate a scoop to pull fresh air from the front of the Raptor.
Here's a sneak peek at what aFe POWER has in the works:
aFe POWER 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Cat-Back Exhaust System
The new F-150 Raptor is also spending time on the rack in the aFe Exhaust department, as they quickly begin to fabricate a new cat-back exhaust system to improve the exhaust flow, as well as give the 2017 F-150 an exhaust note worthy of the name Raptor.
aFe POWER 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Sway-A-Way Suspension Options
The new 2017 F-150 Raptor has an upgraded off-road suspension from the factory, but for those with true off-road inspirations and desire nothing but the best, the Sway-A-Way suspension team here at aFe is already working on a new SAW coilover package that can take the abuse of the hardest driver.
Keep an eye on aFe POWER for much more coming for the new Raptor!

aFe Power is growing in popularity worldwide. To further help this growth, we are excited to announce the addition of Flavio Pauletti as our factory representative in Europe. Flavio started his career working for a company based in the United Kingdom selling and promoting their products and services. The company was “Safety Kleen” and is one of the world’s leading providers of mechanical parts washing & chemical application services. In 1995 Flavio formally opened his own business; INMEDIA, which offers intermediation services to those companies wishing to promote, support and sell their products internationally. In 2000 Flavio started representing a company more in line with his passion. The Italian company “Dimensione Sport” (Dimsport), which is widely known for their chip tuning software for cars called “RACE” and an electronic device/module for improving car performances called “RAPID”. Flavio took a virtually unknown product in Europe and developed it into the business that it is today.
Flavio will be representing aFe Power throughout Europe to help develop the market. Flavio will be based out of his office in Torino Italy. Flavio will be reporting directly to Kevin Floody. The week before SEMA, Flavio will be joining us to spend time throughout our entire factory to learn as much about what we do.
Welcome aboard Flavio!

Round 8 Finale of the Formula Drift Championship Leads to Wild Finish!
The 2016 Formula Drift Championship season came to an exciting conclusion this past weekend, holding its final round of the season was held at the famous Irwindale Speedway or, as those in the know call it, the “House of Drift”. The sold out event was sold out and had over 600,000 online viewers watching from all over the globe!
Thirty-two drivers prepared themselves in hopes of winning the final race of the season, but everyone’s eyes were focused on four drivers, each with a chance to win the sought after 2016 Formula Drift Title. Two-time champion Chris Forsberg led the championship standings with Fredric Aasbo, past champion Vaughn Gittin JR., and Aurimas “Odi” Bakchis all giving chase. With a 36-point lead over second, Forsberg, driver of the NOS Energy Drink Nissan 370 Z, had a solid lead coming into the final round. That lead was soon in question as Forsberg had an upset during his run against Patrick Mordaunt. Forsberg lost control and hit the outside wall preventing him from finishing the competition, giving Aasbo and Gittin a small glimmer of hope. They both battled hard for a shot of grabbing first in points. Unfortunately, Gittin was knocked out of the top 32 early, leaving Aasbo for a chance at the championship title. Aasbo, heading for an upset title win, made contact with Matt Field, preventing him from advancing to the next round. This gave Forsberg his 3rd championship title since Bakchis was too far behind in points.
Now that the crown of the 2016 Formula Drift Championship had been settled on a winner, the question remained on who would win the event at Irwindale Speedway. The final battle came down to aFe POWER sponsored Dai Yoshihara in his Subaru BR-Z, and Matt Field, driver of the Gears of War 4 Nissan S14. The final battle was a nail bitter as both teams wanted to win and finish the season on a high note. The stage was set for both drivers, in a two out of three face-off that would determine who would take home first place. Yoshihara was victorious in the first run, but he needed to come out on top again to take home the win. As Yoshihara mimicked every move Field made, a victory for Yoshihara looked obvious. Unfortunately, Yoshihara’s power steering broke on his second run, sending the aFe POWER sponsored BR-Z into the wall and cutting the run short. Field went on to win the season finisher of the Formula Drift series. While Yoshihara crashed, he still finished strong in second place at Irwindale Speedway, wrapping up the season in great stride taking 6th place in points.

This past Saturday's Pirelli World Challenge came down to an astonishing last lap pass. Veteran sports car champ Johnny O'Connell chased and caught young gun Austin Cindric to win at Sonoma Raceway. Cindric, the driver of the No. 6 K-PAX Racing McLaren 650S, sat on the pole position from the start of the race while Johnny O'Connell, driver of the No. 3 Cadillac Racing Cadillac ATS-V, started from third.
It was a game of chess on the track, as O'Connell stayed behind the McLaren throughout the entire race observing the faults in his opponent's vehicle waiting for the perfect chance to pounce. Austin meanwhile focused on running a perfect race, minimizing the chance of making mistakes. The 12 turn, 2.38-mile road course was a 50-minute event with a total of 31 laps ran during the race. For Cindric the event seemed to go on forever as O'Connell was lurking behind in second putting the pressure on the young 18-year-old for first. It all came down to the last lap on turn six. O'Connell found himself close enough to capitalize on the opportunity when Cindric lost rear traction in his McLaren 650S, this left the inside lane open for O'Connell to pass and beat him by 0.716 seconds for an exciting photo finish!
The race was Johnny O'Connell's 19th victory in the Pirelli World Challenge and coincidentally his 60th overall win as a driver for GM. For Austin Cindric, he continues to chase that elusive first win as this is his second runner-up finish in the year.
Round 20 and the final race for the GT and GTA classes will take place at the famed Laguna-Seca Raceway.
Stream it live on - www.motortrendondemand.com/watch-live/ or watch the race on October, 16th 2016 at 3:00 p.m. on the CBS Sports Network.

When the second generation Nissan Titan pickup truck was revealed, many wondered how it would fair against heavyweights Ford, Dodge, and Chevy. Powered by a Cummins 5.0L V8 turbo diesel, producing a hefty 310 HP and 555 Lb. x ft. of Torque at the crank. Completely redesigned inside and out the new Titan XD offers a high level of luxury with brute strength all in one package. aFe POWER will rely on our vast experience with Cummins Engines to give this truck the complete aFe POWER makeover.
The intake development team got to work the second this truck rolled into the shop. Pictured above, you can see our experienced team of engineers have already developed a 3D Printed Momentum HD Intake with testing fully underway in real world conditions. The Momentum HD features a roto-molded one-piece housing to protect the air filter from hot engine bay temperatures, including a larger diameter intake tube for maximum airflow for improved horsepower and torque. A large, clear sight window is used for a hassle-free filter inspection and unique aggressive styling. The included urethane plug can be used to block off the auxiliary air inlet, or you can add our optional air scoop which will be available for purchase for increased airflow.

The intercooler charge pipes were next on the list to tackle for the Nissan Titan XD. The stock intercooler pipes are 2-1/2” inlet and outlet diameters from both the cold and hot side tubes. We will be featuring two packages, one will be an OE upgrade for those wanting to keep their stock intercooler, and the other will be a complete intercooler kit upgrade. The OE upgrade will feature a hot side charge pipe with a 2-1/2” inlet and outlet diameter, featuring fewer bends than what the OE has for increased airflow. The cold side charge pipe will have a 3” inlet and outlet diameter increasing airflow and minimizing restriction. The complete kit will feature an upgraded intercooler core and new 3” charge pipes on both the hot and cold side for increased cooling efficiency.

Nissan Titan XD DPF Back Exhaust System
The stock exhaust for the Nissan Titan XD was too boring for an aggressive looking truck, the R&D exhaust team didn’t waste any time in developing a tougher looking exhaust system for the Titan XD. The LARGE BORE XD exhaust system is crafted from either a 4" or 5” mandrel-bent stainless steel or aluminized steel for maximum air flow and aggression. We use high-quality band clamps and OE-style bayonet hangers for a secure and leak-free seal, and offer your choice of either a large stainless steel polished or black intercooled exhaust tip. Both systems fit the Titan XD crew cab with the standard bed (151.6” Wheelbase/6-6 ft. bed).

If you crave more performance, then our Scorcher HD Tuner Module is the answer you’re looking for. The factory tuning always leaves something more on the table when it comes to tuning, the Scorcher HD tuner module unlocks that hidden performance for everyday use under your command. Unlike other handheld Tuners that will flash your trucks computer and risk voiding your warranty. Our module relieves you of that concern, by leaving no trace on the ECU for the dealership to pick up upon scanning when returned back to stock. We achieve performance gains by altering the pressure sensor signals to increase boost and fuel levels to an optimum point throughout the entire RPM range.
All of our Scorcher HD modules are easy to install, requiring no cutting, drilling, or splicing. The Scorcher HD Tuner Module for the Titan XD connects to the stock wiring harness with factory connectors for an effortless installation. Our new generation of Scorcher Modules allow you to quickly change between power levels with a simple push of a button.

Nissan Titan XD Rear Differential Covers
aFe POWER Rear differential covers offer increased protection, simply by supplying increased fluid lubrication and reducing temperatures to vital parts in your Titan XD’s differential. We offer our rear differentials in either our Street Series (RAW Finish) or our Pro Series (Black Powder Coated Finish). Both feature built-in cooling fins to maximize heat transfer for cooler fluid temperatures. A built-in magnetic drain plug helps capture loose metal particles that could be floating around, this helps prolong the life of both your fluid and differential over time. Available with our Pro Series covers, we include a sight glass plug which allows you to perform a quick visual fluid inspection, and a magnetic fill plug for added protection.
That's Not All for the Titan XD.....Stay Tuned!
That’s not all we have in store for the Nissan Titan XD. Stay tuned as our newly acquired suspension company SWAY-A-WAY are in the early stages of developing coilovers and shocks for the new Titan XD.
