Show Report: NAIAS 2018 (Detroit, Michigan)

The Fast, the Present, and the Future
Show Report by Marissa P.

The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) kicked off in Detroit, Michigan a couple weeks ago and as always the automakers pulled out all the stops trying to outdo one another. Nearly everyone premiered new takes on old classics and even gave us a glimpse of the future.

Dodge certainly didn’t shy away from the competition with its display of the 2018 Dodge Demon. The Demon proudly boasts that it is a drag strip-ready car straight from production. Don’t get your hopes too high though, as-is the car won’t pass an NHRA safety inspection it will need a few a few extras before you can head down one of their tracks.

Ford, however, wasn’t going to…

How to Improve Engine Response

Ah, engine “response.” That elusive term that is hard to define, but you know it when you feel it.

Simply put, the term “engine response” refers to how quickly your engine responds to a change in throttle position. Ideally, your engine reacts instantly when you push on the accelerator pedal and lets power drop back down the moment you let off.

As your engine gets older, responsiveness can begin to drop, causing hesitation and surging when you don’t want it. Correct engine responsiveness can also help reduce fuel economy, as your engine only develops the power you need right when you need it.

To help ensure your engine stays responsive like when it was new, our engineering and tech support teams here at Rislone have put together…

Engine Mods That Actually Work

If you’re going to the trouble and expense of modding your car, you want your mods to actually deliver real-world gains. Adding significant performance to your vehicle can be a challenge (in terms of time and money), so it takes some careful research and planning. When all the work is done and you take your vehicle out to experience the performance improvements the first time, it’s all worth it, though.

We’ve put together this list of engine and vehicle mods that have been proven to work and make your car a lot more fun to drive. This is based on our own experience, and what our customers talk to us about on our tech lines and at annual auto shows like SEMA and the Woodward…

How Much Horsepower Is Enough?

Your first response should be, there’s no such thing!

OK, this is kind of a trick question. The answer depends on the kind of driving you do, what you expect out of your car, and how much reliability you want. People who race their car and enjoy spirited driving can never get enough horsepower, while many daily drivers are content with the power they already have. The further you go up the horsepower ladder, the less reliable – and probably less drivable – your car will become. That’s because it’ll become less a general-purpose transportation machine, and more something purpose-built for performance. But that’s another story.

Regardless, here at Rislone, we know every customer has unique power and performance goals. But if you want to realize…
