Hey guys,

Improved Racing has just started accepting group buy pre-orders for our V8 swap aluminum FD strut tower bar. These bars are made in batches through group buys every couple of years, so they are difficult to get and if you don't pre-order you're not guaranteed to be able to get one.

Pre-orders close February 28th and the new bars are expected to ship around April 12th.

These bars provide more engine clearance than any other strut tower bar while still clearing the factory hood. That means they will clear most V8 and 20B swaps. The optional integrated brake master cylinder brace helps improve brake feel by preventing the firewall flex issues these cars have under braking. With pre-orders only, you have the option of LHD, RHD, or no brace. Pre-orders also get the option of black anodized finish or plain aluminum finish.

You can read more details and place your pre-order here: http://www.improvedracing.com/strut-bars/strut-tower-bar-and-master-cylinder-brace-for-mazda-rx-fd3s-p-37.html

One change we are working on for this batch is making the brake master cylinder brace compatible with the 929 master cylinder. Currently it will clear but the brace is not useful as there is no space for the adjustment screw.

Please note we only make a handful of extras, and the extras are usually all LHD, with brace, and black anodized. So if you don't pre-order you might have to wait a couple of years to get one, especially if you want custom options!

Post up if you have any questions and I'll be happy to answer them!

Valid for Cyber Monday only, ends at midnight EST. Use discount code BMRSBF18.

Improved Racing / Heat Shield for Oil Cooler Adapters
« on: October 25, 2017, 10:34:20 AM »
We now have a heat shield available to help insulate our oil cooler adapters from exhaust heat. This can also be used to shield the factory water-to-oil coolers on some LS motors from the cats as well. It can also be used longways on smaller pipes. You can use it to insulate your transmission or diff and lower fluid temps, for example.

It's made from basalt, ceramic insulation, and silica fabric and can withstand temps up to 2,462F.

Here's the link: http://www.improvedracing.com/oil-cooler-adapters/basalt-silica-exhaust-pipe-and-catalytic-converter-heat-shield-p-854.html

We just released a new thermostatic adapter with oil lines that exit out of the front and bottom of the adapter. This provides more clearance for certain headers, allows clearance for the LSX and LS Next engine blocks, and does not interfere with the knock sensor in Gen IV LS engines.

Improved Racing / Thermostatic Remote Oil Filter Mount
« on: March 04, 2017, 01:13:06 PM »
We just launched a remote oil filter mount with a built-in thermostat. If you're running a remote filter and a cooler, this will save you space and cost!

An oil thermostat is critical for any vehicle running an oil cooler and driven on the street. Without it, your oil may never reach operating temp, resulting in premature engine wear and damage.

The filter mount is available with a 185F or 215F thermostat. It has female -10AN ORB ports with optional adapter fittings for -6AN, -8AN, -10AN, or -12AN lines.

The large M22x1.5 filter thread accepts a large number of filters in many different sizes. It also includes a mounting bracket for multiple mounting options.

Improved Racing / C5 Corvette Trap-Door Oil Pan Baffling Inserts
« on: January 30, 2017, 01:35:41 PM »
We now have trap door oil pan baffling inserts available for the two-piece C5 Corvette "batwing" oil pan.

These inserts snap right into the factory pan and are very easy to install, requiring only the removal of the bottom oil pan access panel.

Adding these trap doors around the pickup significantly reduces oil starvation. These can typically handle up to 1.4 G's without any loss in oil pressure.

Note this kit will not work with the earlier single-piece C5 Corvette oil pans.

As most of you know, Improved Racing makes a high-clearance strut tower bar for the FD Rx-7 that will clear V8's and other common swaps while still clearing the factory hood. We typically organize a group buy every couple of years to make more strut bars and it's that time again.

If you want one of these strut bars, now's your chance to get one. To sign up just visit our website and place a pre-order. Here is the pre-order link: http://www.improvedracing.com/strut-bars/strut-tower-bar-and-master-cylinder-brace-for-mazda-rx-fd3s-p-37.html

Pre-order's close on January 31st, 2017. In the unlikely case we don't receive enough pre-orders to justify a production run, we will either extend the deadline or issue full refunds to everyone who ordered. You may also cancel your pre-order at any time for a full refund with no penalty.

These strut bars are made from solid 6061-T6 aluminum yet only weigh 4.5 lbs. They feature an optional brake master cylinder brace, which solves the firewall flex issue these cars have.

By pre-ordering you get several custom options:
  • Left-hand drive, right-hand drive, or no master cylinder brace
  • Black anodized finish or plain aluminum
  • Custom laser engraving of your choice on your bar. By customer demand, we will likely abandon the separate plaque in the center of the bar and laser engrave the bar directly instead.

Please note that we only plan on making as many bars as we have orders, and won't be making them again until at least a year from now. We may have some extra bars left over if someone cancels their order.

New! Oil Cooler Thermostat for Gen V LT1 / LT4 Engine

Improved Racing's thermostatic oil cooler adapter for the C7 Corvette oil pan is now available!

  • 100% bolt-on in place of the factory heat exchanger, just above the oil filter
  • Rebuildable
  • Auxiliary port can be used for a sensor, turbo oil feed line, or oil accumulator with optional fittings
  • May also fit other applications with GM Gen V small blocks, except the 2016+ Camaro SS
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • Made in the USA


We are also working on complete oil cooler kits for the C7 Corvette that will use this adapter and a custom cooler.

Improved Racing / Single Piece Replacement LS Oil Pan Gaskets for Only $24
« on: November 14, 2016, 01:29:48 PM »
We now have replacement LS oil pan gaskets available for $24. Unlikely the factory gasket, which is made like a jigsaw puzzle of 4 pieces, these are made from a single piece of aluminum. The gasket seal is silicon like the factory gasket. Designed using original GM CAD models for a perfect fit.

At $24 bucks these are less costly than the factory gasket and won't give you any sealing issues.

Available here: http://www.improvedracing.com/gaskets-seals/single-piece-replacement-oil-pan-gasket-for-gm-ls-engines-p-660.html
