Nissan and Toyota Rein Automotive Oil Pan Kits
CRP Automotive has added three new Rein Automotive Oil Pan Kits to its line of oil-pan service kits for high-volume vehicle applications. The new additions include Nissan (PN ESK0199) and Toyota (PN ESK0200, ESK0201), and cover popular Nissan models, including Altima, Murano, and Quest, as well as Toyota Celica, C-HR, Corolla, Matrix, MR2 Spyder, Prius, Prius AWD-E, Prius Plug-in, Prius Prime, and Prius V models. Total program coverage exceeds 7 million VIO in the United States and more than 900,000 VIO in Canada.
Rein Automotive oil pan service kits are designed to be direct-fit replacements for the original part and include all the necessary accessories needed to complete the service. Unlike other oil pan replacements, every Rein Oil Pan Kit comes with an OE-quality gasket and a new drain plug. A tube of Ajusil silicone sealant is provided for applications that do not use a gasket. This allows technicians to order a single part number and receive all the necessary components for the repair, saving time and improving efficiency.
Element Series Light-Ready Front Bumper for ’16–’21 Toyota Tacoma
Go Rhino launched its Element Series Light-Ready Front Bumper for the ’16–’21 Toyota Tacoma. The centerpiece of this new bumper is Go Rhino’s patent-pending Power-actuated Hideaway Light Bar Mount, which allows the driver to reveal a 20-in. double-row LED light bar at the flip of a switch from inside the cab. The Element provides for larger tires and additional ground clearance for off-road capability, and dramatically improves the appearance of the factory vehicle.
The Element bumper’s 1/8-in. (14-gauge) steel shell is faced with mesh panels to help reduce weight and improve airflow. Each side wing hides three mounting points for optional cube lights, and the corresponding mesh panels are removable and paintable for easy customization. Two exclusive dual-function, inverted 1-inch-thick steel tow hook/D-ring mounts are fully welded to the bottom of the shell and can accept up to 7/8-in. shackles.
BK Connect Indoor Pass-by
Test and measurement specialist HBK has created the BK Connect Indoor Pass-by, a tool designed to help automotive manufacturers ensure their vehicles comply with strict, pass-by noise regulations.
Pass-by noise tests have typically been performed outdoors, an indoor method is now also accepted for type approval, as it provides a more stable environment for development testing and noise source identification. HBK’s BK Connect Indoor Pass-by software was created in line with legal standards, covering the full spectrum of pass-by testing, making it ideal for automotive testing needs—from simple conformance assessments to noise source contribution analysis.
The indoor pass-by measurement software includes automatic measurement plans, a predefined test setup, which can be uploaded ahead of time to focus on test operation, plus the ability to define source and indicator microphones for Source Path Contribution (SPC) analysis. Test data is accessible on the BK Connect Team Server for inspection, comparison and reporting, using a Pass-by Data Viewer.
Ignition Power Package
The Ignition Power Package includes the Digital HP Capacitive Discharge Ignition Box and a Flame Thrower III Canister Coil. These two products work together to provide more power, faster starts, higher RPM range, and quicker acceleration.
Digital HP Ignition Box
When it comes to getting the most performance out of your engine, having a powerful spark—and at the precise moment—is key. Plus, with today’s poor fuel blends, a higher energy spark is even more important whether your engine is stock, hot rodded or built for maximum power.
The Digital HP Ignition Box delivers 172 mJ of Spark Energy and features an integrated 3-step digital REV limiter delivering multiple spark all the way to redline. Key features also include an RPM triggered output, adjustable start retard, locking automotive connector, tachometer output lead, and onboard error logging all in an ultra-small form factor. Download the ”Specification Sheet“ for all the details.
- Integrated 3-Step Digital REV Limiter
- Locking Automotive Connector
- Multiple Spark All the Way to Redline
- Tachometer Output Lead
- 172 mJ of Spark Energy
- Ultra-Small Form Factor
- RPM Triggered Output
- Onboard Error Logging
Flame Thrower III Canister Coil
The ignition coil of your engine is responsible for producing a high-voltage spark eight times (on a V8) for every revolution of the camshaft. This means that even a short drive into town could require well over a million sparks. In short, a coil must be engineered to perform in a harsh environment while delivery consistent, reliable performance.
High voltage canister coils allow larger spark plug gap for added power, smoother response and improved fuel economy.
- 45,000 volts
- Ultra-low 0.32 primary resistance
- Charges to peak current typically 30%-70% faster than other coils
- Rapid charge time means maximum spark energy is sustained to higher engine RPM
- Legal in all states
