FilterMag can extend the life of your engine by trapping and holding wear-causing metal particles all the way down to 1 micron-too small for a standard oil filter to stop. The secret? Rare earth magnets force metal shavings to stick to the inside of the oil-canister wall without reducing oil flow. FilterMag magnetizes itself to the outside of your oil filter so it can never fall off, and it's reusable every time you perform a filter change. Check out www.filtermag.com for all the details.
Shine Like A Star

Its special combination of ingredients will make your paint look like it's dripping off of your vehicle, with a high-gloss shine and shimmer that's sure to impress even the toughest critics. Premium Carnauba Plus No. 53 also includes a liquid crystal polymer for extended longevity and durability. For more information, go to www.classicindustries.com.
RevXtreme has just introduced its latest oil-separating catch can. This model uses a thin carbon-fiber overlay on an 1/8-inch-thick aluminum body to cool and condense the oil suspension into droplets, where they are trapped and collected in the bottom of the can for drainage later. It includes a unique inner-disc baffle system that keeps crankcase vapors in contact with the cooling surfaces for a longer period and forces the outgoing vapors to make one more cooling pass as they enter the upper outlet chamber. An integrated PCV/check valve controls the amount of flow and prevents backflow. According to the company, "That's why it's the most effective oil-separating can on the market today."
