1)  Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show, Dec 14-16  Stop by booth 1153 at the PRI tradeshow in Orlando, Florida to check out what's new for 2007.  We plan to display some of our newest products, updates and accessories, including:

New, automatic valve spring tester.
New automatic valve opener for flow bench testing.
New Cam Test Stand and Cam Analyzer features.
New sensors for our DataMite II and Black Box II, especially for dyno testing.
New updated version of Engine Analyzer Pro, v3.5 * (free to anyone who has purchased EAP v3.3 since July 2006).
New updated version of Port Flow Analyzer, v3.5 * (free to anyone who has purchased PFA v3.0 since Oct 2006).
And more.

* The Engine Analyzer Pro v3.5 and Port Flow Analyzer v3.5 will not be released until after the PRI show.

Also check out booth 1155 next to us for Tri-Mark Performance.  They do custom porting for all types of engines, including ASA, USAR, NASCAR, ACT and NTPA.  They specialize in "stealth" porting for cast iron heads and crate motors.


2)  Engine Analyzer Pro v3.5  After the last newsletter, we got several inquiries about the new Engine Analyzer Pro v3.5.  Well, we finally got the documentation done so you can see what we've done.  Click on the following link to view "Appendix 10 New Features in Version 3.5" from the Pro's User's Manual:  http://www.performancetrends.com/PDFs/EAP%20Supp35.pdf

This preliminary v3.5 will not overwrite your older v2.1 or 3.3, but will be installed to a different folder.  This will be a free update to anyone who has purchased v3.3 since July 2006.  If you find any problems with this preliminary program, or have comments, please email us at:  feedback@performancetrends.com


3)  December Schedule  Because of the PRI trade show and holidays, the office will be closed on certain days.  However, even when we are closed, we do try to respond to urgent phone messages.  Here's the days we expect to be closed:

Dec 23-28 for Christmas


4)  Christmas Is Coming  Many of our products make great Christmas gifts.  For computer programs, most all can be purchased by downloading demo versions from our website, and then calling with a credit card for an activation code.  This means you can order at the last minute, and still have a gift for that racer on your Christmas list.  Popular gift ideas include:
