Hot Floor No More
Design Engineering has come up with a versatile thermal and sound-control barrier product to cut the heat in the cab. Unlike other products, the Floor and Tunnel Shield is designed to be used underneath (outside) the truck to stop heat before it gets inside. It can withstand 1,750 degrees F direct continuous heat while reflecting almost 90 percent of that heat away and only needs a 1/2 inch of clearance. In addition to the great thermal properties, the Floor and Tunnel Shield also offers relief from unwanted noise.

Install It Right IF You Dare
IF Customs introduces an install kit for the popular Oasis HP1000 Trailhead compressor. This 2.5hp 12-volt motor pumps out 8 cfm at 100 psi (14 cfm at 0 psi), but it draws 180 amps. IF has found that one Optima run in parallel with the vehicle's primary battery increases overall system efficiency and keeps the computer from killing the battery. The complete kit comes with everything you see here. The brackets are tough enough to install under your truck's bed, either bolted or welded on. The kit can be purchased complete, or just order the parts you need.

A Better Nozzle
Nitrous Pro-Flow, a division of Wilson Manifolds designed its patent-pending V-Force nozzle to provide a unique flow of nitrous and fuel that actually prevents excessive fuel wash, thus resulting in more power. The oval spray pattern completely fills the port unlike other nozzles that use a fan or wedge spray pattern that can cause a power-limiting disruption in flow. Each nozzle is CNC-machined from 303 stainless (with 1/16-inch NPT thread) and uses stainless entry fittings, not zinc-plated steel, so corrosion is never an issue.
