Timeless Muscle Magazine Features 1968 GTX

The team at Timeless Muscle Magazine did a great article covering a 1968 Plymouth GTX that was wired with our Infinitybox system.  The car is owned by Len W. and was built with help from Shironaka Enterprises.  The article was written by Rick Seitz and the stunning photography was shot by Grant Cox.  This car looks great, performs like a champ and has our Infinitybox system at its heart managing all of its electrical system.

The guys wired this car with our 20-Circuit Kit.  This kit forms the electrical backbone of the car.  It is powering all the lights, ignition, starter, fuel pump, cooling fan, horn and other accessories.  They added our inLINK remote option to get our integrated security and immobilization feature.  They also added our inRESERVE active battery manager.  This accessory constant keeps an eye on the car’s battery voltage and actively disconnects all the electrical draw if the voltage gets too low.  This feature always keeps enough charge in the battery to crank the engine and never lets the battery deep cycle.

This picture shows the 6.1L New-Gen HEMI engine sitting comfortably under the hood.  The engine bay is clean and well laid out.  You can see the primary Mega fuses that are included with the 20-Circuit Kit in the lower right coming off the battery.  You can also see the POWERCELL neatly mounted on the firewall by the brake booster.

This mounting location shows off two key strengths of the Infinitybox system.  First, our hardware was designed to handle the heat, shock, vibration and chemical exposure found in the toughest automotive applications.  Second, our distributed architecture makes wiring the car much easier.  That front POWERCELL is controlling all of the electrical functions in the front of the car.  These include the headlights, high-beams, front running lights, front turn signals, horn, cooling fan, ignition power to the ECU, power to the starter solenoid and power for the dash.  All of these functions wire locally to the front POWERCELL.  They do not need to be wired back to a central fuse box in the car.

We thank Len, Rick and the team at Timeless Muscle Magazine for this great article.  Our team at Infinitybox is proud to be a part of this car.  You can read the full article in the magazine by clicking this link.

1952 Pick Up Featured in Hot Rod Magazine

Hot Rod Magazine just published a feature article covering an awesome 1952 Chevrolet 3100 pick up truck.  From the curb, this looks to be a modest and clean restoration.  When you get into the details, you’ll see that this is a high-performing resto-mod, ready to take on anything that gets in its way.

Under the truck is a TCI chassis equipped with a Currie 9″ rear end and a 4-link rear end.  Up front is the TCI independent front suspension.  Under the hood is a supercharged and heavily modified LS9.  This entire package delivers a truck with plenty of power and handling.

Here’s what Mark did electrically with our Infinitybox system.  He started out with our 20-Circuit Kit.  This is his electrical backbone in the truck.  His MASTERCELL and two POWERCELLs are controlling his ignition, starter, headlights, turn signals, running lights, high-beams, horn and cooling fan.  He then added inMOTION to control his power windows and power locks.  Lastly, he added inTOUCH NET so that he could control the whole truck from the Kenwood head unit in the dash or the smart phone in his pocket.  The finished product is a clean electrical install with features that no other wiring harness can offer.

This picture shows the details in the interior plus the Kenwood head unit that is his interface for inTOUCH NET and the rest of the Infinitybox system.

Finished Factory Five Cobra

Ten years ago, we started selling our Infinitybox systems.  We found our first success with guys building Factory Five Cobras.  These guys are tinkers.  They want something that they built, not bought.  They want their cars to be different and unique.  Our Infinitybox system has been instrumental for hundreds of Factory Five Roadsters, Hot Rods, GTM’s and 818’s for 10 years.  With our system, guys can simplify their electrical system plus get features that no other system can provide.

We received these great pictures from Infinitybox customer Dan M.  He’s just finishing his Cobra build and is very proud of the results.

He squeezed the Ford Coyote 5.0 under the hood.  Check out how clean the engine compartment is.

Factory Five Cobra wired with the Infinitybox system.

Ford Coyote 5.0 installed in Factory Five Cobra wired with Infinitybox system.

He wired the system with our standard 20-Circuit Kit.  This universal system is powering all of the electrical functions in the car including the ignition, starter, head lights, high-beams, turn signals, brake lights, fuel pump, horn and cooling fan.  He integrated our system to the Ford ECU for the Coyote to simplify control of the ignition, starter solenoid, cooling fan and fuel pump.  You can download the Infinitybox wiring diagram that shows how to connect to the Coyote harness by clicking this link.

Dan added inLINK as an option to his kit to get our security functions.  Since this is an open top car, he wanted to do everything that could to prevent theft.  Since his 20-Circuit Kit is controlling the ignition, fuel pump and starter, the security functions built into the Infinitybox system completely immobilize the car when he locks it from the inLINK key fobs.  If a would-be thief were to try to hot wire the car, the Infinitybox system eliminates the ability to start the engine unless it is unlocked from the inLINK key fob.

Lastly, Dan added our inRESERVE battery management solenoid to his kit.  inRESERVE is an active battery management system that disconnects the battery if the voltage starts to drop.  This helps to reduce damage to the battery from deep-cycling and always leaves enough power in the battery to start the car.

This picture shows the rear POWERCELL mounted on the frame of the car.  It also shows some of the included harnesses, the primary fuses included in the kit to protect the power harnesses and the inRESERVE solenoid.

We wanted to end this blog post with a quote from Dan.  He sent us an email with these great pictures and these comments about our Infinitybox system.

“I can’t thank you enough for the help you gave me and the system your company produces. I am planning on post pictures and a write up on the Factory Five Forum over the weekend. I will be telling other builders that if you are worried about wiring you car then Infinitybox is for you, it makes a complicated part of the build much easier to understand and complete. Thank you for a wonderful product.”

Thank you to Dan W. for sharing these pictures and the comments about our system.  We appreciate this and are proud to be a part of your car.

inTOUCH NET in Action

A lot of people will remember a customer video that we promoted about a year ago.  In this video, Richard S. was showing off his ability to start his car from his iPad using our inTOUCH NET.  It is a very memorable video because Richard is very excited about what he can do with our Infinitybox system in his car.  He posted another video last night showing our inTOUCH NET in action and we wanted to share it.

Richard Sherman’s Kongquest, wired with the Infinitybox System.

Richard has been building his KONGQUEST for several years.  It is a late 1980’s Conquest with a complete Corvette drive train under the body.  He has done a remarkable job building the chassis and even integrating in the Torque Tube into the system.  Here you can see the chassis of the car.

Richard Sherman’s Kongquest, wired with the Infinitybox System.

This is a very unique build and Richard didn’t want a typical electrical system.  He came to our team at Infinitybox to get the latest & greatest in automotive wiring technology.  He wired the car with our 20-Circuit Kit, inMOTION and inTOUCH NET.  There is nothing else in the market like our Infinitybox system.  No other company can give you the control and features in your custom car or truck build.  inTOUCH NET is extra unique.  We can give you complete touch screen control of all of your electrical features through any smart phone, tablet or select head units.

Factory Five Type 65 Race Car

The Factory Five Type 65 Coupe is near and dear to our hearts.  It is the car that lead us down the rabbit hole to develop our Infinitybox system and all of the accessory components.  You can learn more about the kit from Factory Five at this link.  We just received an email from a customer who finished his Factory Five Type 65 race car and wanted to share pictures of the final product.  He wired this car with our Infinitybox 20-Circuit Kit.

Factory Five Type 65 Wired with the Infinitybox System

Shaun L. spent almost 10 years building this as a race car.  He went down an unconventional path by using a GM Crate LS2 instead of the traditional Ford route.  That makes car really unique.  That LS2 is paired to a Tremec TKO600 transmission running through a Moser fabricated Ford 9″ rear end, geared at 3.55.  He also built a custom 3-line set up for the rear end.

With these pictures, we received some very warm words from Shaun.  He said:

“I just wanted to share with you the completion of my Daytona Type 65 coupe after almost ten years. It has been a long build, with time and money always is short supply, but an awesome adventure. I am very impressed with your 3 cell system and even more in your continued support years after the initial sale. I have and will continue recommending your products to fellow builders and racers. Thanks again for all your assistance over the years, cheers.”

We take a lot of pride in the products and service that we provide.  Feedback like this is very important to us.

Player’s LTD Camaro

For those who were following us early on in our history, we did a lot of work with James Shipka and his One Lap of America Camaro.  We really cut our teeth on this car and learned a lot about the business.

James and his team came back to us last year with another race car project.  This one is pretty unique.  James found a Camaro originally built for the Player’s LTD series.  General Motors built these cars specifically for this race series and were driven at tracks all across Canada.  The main tracks were Shannonville, Grand Prix Molson, Race City, Mosport, Moslon Indy, Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres, Westwood, Cayuga Speedway.  You can learn more about the cars and the race series by clicking this link.

James was looking for a powerful but simple electrical system for his restoration of this Player’s Camaro.  We recommended our Express Track Car kit.  This gives our customers everything that they need to wire all of the electrical functions of a race car.  It comes pre-configured to control your ignition, starter solenoid, lights, fuel pump, water pump and cooling fans.  At its heart, this kit starts with one of our POWERCELLs.  The kit also includes a pre-engineered CAN switch panel that mounts in your dash.  A simple 4-wire harness connects the switch panel to the POWERCELL.  Lastly, the kit also includes one of our IOX input modules for wiring simple switches into the system.

This picture shows the POWERCELL mounted behind the passenger door in the car.

Here you can see the switch panel mounted in the center console.

This is a very simple but powerful application of our products.

You can follow the entire build series for the Player’s Camaro on Facebook by clicking this link.  Thanks to James and his team for sharing the pictures.  We’re proud to be a part of your project.
