RaceTec and AutoTec Pistons added to our online store

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Competition Components is pleased to offer the Racetec and AutoTec piston lines to our online store. Racetec was founded by Wayne Brooks, who was the former owner of JE Pistons. RaceTec Pistons are designed and engineered by true piston experts. Experts, who understand the intricate and complex automotive aftermarket industry and more directly performance engine applications like no other manufacturer can. Our State Of The Art designs utilize knowledge gained throughout our combined years in the automotive and piston racing industries. We are also the only piston company that is using a state of the art D.T.S. Engine Dyno to help in the development of our designs. Having our in house dyno along with our customers to develop and refine piston design has helped us to deliver a superior product. Considerable design and manufacturing experience have been implemented to deliver the tolerances expected by the highest level of race engine builders and yet “keeping it user friendly” to accommodate the entry level and Saturday night racer.

The AutoTec Line is a precision machined product, offered at very competitive pricing. Made out of 4032 High Silicone Aluminum Alloy, it has great wear resistance, a low expansion rate, is very durable, and is very low in friction. These pistons accommodate multiple uses including. Your local auto shop, muscle car restorations, performance street rods, as well as many spec racing classes. They can also withstand mild nitrous kits and small turbo or super chargers. Just about everyone can benefit from the excellent value the AutoTec line carries.

Bill Amsdill’s 10 Second Street Strip 73 Oldsmobile Cutlass

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Bill is a pretty typical Olds guy. He likes his cars to be fast and look good, but he also likes to be comfy when he takes his wife Cathy out cruisin’. Their 73 Cutlass does all of that and more. Bill picked up the current engine from a guy in Ohio that had difficulty keeping the combo running. Bill and the previous owned agreed on a price and Bill brought the engine to us in milk crates, which we freshened and tuned up.  It consists of a stock block with the Mondello bottom end girdle and matching oil pan. The crank is an Eagle 4.250 stroke cast unit, with their ESP H beam rods attached. The pistons are Probe pieces, with Total Seal conventional rings sealing them up. The heads are Edelbrock Performer RPMs that have been CNC Ported and had 2.19/1.68 Stainless valves in them. The valve springs are dual from PAC, and with lightweight tool steel retainers, Scorpion Roller Rockers, and a Jomar Stud Girdle.  The Cam is a street roller from Scott Brown at Competition Components with 268 @ .050 and .700 lift. The Intake is a port matched Edelbrock Victor, with a  Holley Dominator converted to run on E85.  A TCI Converter is plugged into the TH400, connected to a 4.10 gear.  Bill runs Warren Gear in Michigan, so you only get one guess as to where the 12 Bolt was assembled. The car is raced in the same trim as it is driven, full 3″ Exhaust to the bumper,  9″ Hoosier radial slicks. and weighs in at a portly 3985lbs. The car has run a best of 10.85, and has been in the 10.90’s regularly. With some more ironing out and testing, as well as a few smaller mods, we are looking to see Bill and Cathy’s Olds in the 10.70’s

F.A.S.T. digital air/fuel ratio meters added to product line

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

If you are looking to tune up your car or truck or boat for optimal performance, look no further than FAST’s line of digital air fuel meters. The engineers at fast have done a great job developing this line of air / fuel meters including setups for ethanol and diesel.

Check out V8TV’s feature on these meters here.

With no laptop required, FAST™ has developed three simple, easy-to-use air/fuel meters for gasoline, diesel and ethanol/methanol (E85) fuels. Available in single or dual sensor units, these meters give tuners the power to read two wide-band O2 sensors individually or average them together for maximum accuracy of the engine’s air/fuel ratio reading. The FAST™ Air/Fuel Meters include several enhanced capabilities, including the built-in data logging capability that plays back recorded information on a lighted, full graphical display screen rather than using a laptop computer. Additional features include outputs for external data loggers, digital gauges, as well as a narrowband simulator function that allows you to feed your engine’s computer a factory signal while using the wide-band sensor for air/fuel measurement.

Competition Components offers all of these FAST air Fuel meters, as well as a full line of FAST accessories. Product listing here
