Boom Mat Jeep Wrangler Side Window KitAVON LAKE, OHIO (FEBRUARY 22, 2013) – Boom Mat™, a division of Design Engineering, Inc. (DEI) and a leading brand of automotive performance acoustical and thermal insulation, introduces a new Jeep Wrangler Side Window Kit that compliments Boom Mat’s Sound Deadening Headliners.  Boom Mat’s new Jeep Wrangler Side Window Kit is a simple peel and stick kit that dresses up the area around the rear side windows. It  installs easily inside hard-top equipped Jeep Wranglers to minimize annoying outside noise with high quality marine grade acoustical foam that resists mold and mildew insulating passengers from outside heat or cold with an R4 value.  When using the Side Window Kit in combination with the headliner, typically a 3 to 4 decibel noise reduction is achieved.  This is a significant reduction in interior noise level that will make it much easier to have conversation or listen to music...



Big Diesel Dry Nitrous System with CryO2AVON LAKE, OHIO (JUNE 28, 2013) – Leave it to Ny-Trex, the official nitrous system of Diesel Motorsports, and DEI’s CryO2 division to design a diesel nitrous system that not only adds quick horsepower, but also takes advantage of every purge to keep your intercooler cool. The Big-Diesel w/ CryO2, designed for use with any intercooled turbo diesel engine, provides all the horsepower benefit of nitrous oxide with a purge sprayer that will cool your intercooler as you purge nitrous to prevent unwanted gas pockets.

Injecting super cooled liquid nitrous oxide into a diesel engine lowers charge air temps and acts as an oxidizer to promote a clean burn. Purging is part of the advised practice to maintain a safe and reliable system. The CryO2 sprayer mounted in front of the intercooler sprays liquid nitrous oxide directly onto the intercooler core, effectively jump-starting the intercooler.  Other systems simply release valuable nitrous oxide into the air during a purge. The Big-Diesel increases intercooler efficiency by reducing incidence of pre-stage heat-soaking that robs power and creates problems in the long run.



DEI Floor And Tunnel Shield IIAVON LAKE, OHIO (JUNE 28, 2013) – DEI’s newly introduced F&T II is an easy to apply heat shield that reflects direct continuous heat up to 1,750°F.  This newly improved lightweight shield effectively reflects heat from hot exhaust pipes, or protects items that come in direct contact with hot exhaust pipes such as seat pans, body panels or fairings. Versatile in its application it can also be strategically applied to protect a motorcycle, ATV or UTV against damage from road and track debris.

F&T II bonds to most any surface including: metal, aluminum, carbon fiber, plastic, and fiberglass. To install, simply trim to fit, peel and apply. The patented finely woven glass-fiber self-adhesive backing is water resistant and withstands up to 450°F of direct heat.

Designed for multiple applications it is equally effective for automotive, marine and RV use; any vehicle’s location where radiant heat can damage components and adversely affect performance. For automotive applications this includes firewalls, transmission tunnels, floor boards, fuel cells or under the hood that can greatly affect driver cabin comfort.



DEI Motorcycle Pipe Wrap KitsAVON LAKE, OHIO (JUNE 18, 2013) – DEI’s all-in-one Motorcycle Pipe Wrap Kit provides a quick and cost effective way to wrap exhaust pipes to improve overall performance and protect against leg burn. Developed to increase thermal retention for any branded motorcycle, ATV/UTV or snowmobile, DEI’s pipe wrap kit increases exhaust flow to a higher velocity to increase horsepower.  The side benefit is that riders are also at less risk of getting burned as it reduces heat transfer up to 50%.

Each kit contains two 2” X 15 ft. rolls of heat insulating pipe wrap that reduces heat as much as 50%, eight 8” and four 14” high grade 304 stainless steel locking ties with 100 lb. tensile strength and a 12 oz. can of HT Silicone Spray; DEI’s high temp coating that provides added protection against abrasions, oil and road grime and prolongs the life of the wrap.

This highly durable wrap is constructed of temperature resistant woven fiberglass that is pre-heat stressed then coated with a vermiculite coating, a proprietary bonding agent that can withstand extreme heat from 1200º F direct or 2000º F radiant...
