About Prothane

With an idea of developing outstanding performance parts out of urethane PROTHANE Motion Control formed its company back in 1991 and they knew that the key to success was in designing and producing a product that would meet customer demands for a primo quality part. The fact that they are still in business and successful after all these years is a testament to their dedication and innovative urethane formulas as well as their aim for customer satisfaction. They started PROTHANE Motion Control with fewer than one hundred parts and the company has managed to mushroom that number into a potpourri of parts for nearly every car in the industry. One of the secrets to the success of Prothane Motion Control is the fact that they utilize the very latest in high tech equipment like the SolidWorks 3D CAD based program used in the design phase to assure you of a preeminent replacement part that will fit perfectly. The research and development team at PROTHANE Motion Control has the important task of developing new high performance and longer lasting parts to replace the factory parts that are made of rubber and become weak, especially those areas that are subjected to a lot of stress. The urethane products by PROTHANE, such as Prothane bushings, are manufactured from start to finish in their facility in the United States where everything can be closely monitored to assure you of a preeminent product for your car. Car manufacturers use rubber as a cost saving measure and, particularly during performance driving, this can result in these parts wearing and causing poor handling but with a urethane part from PROTHANE this will not be a problem since they are much more durable than your original factory installed rubber part. The transmission mounts in your car, as I am sure you know, serve a very important role and that is to support your car’s powertrain and concurrently isolate the vibrations produced by your car’s powertrain from the chassis. When your transmission mounts become weak or broken from age or excessive force such as in racing or other forms of high powered driving you could experience several problems: a belt driven fan could possibly hit the fan shroud, the fan could hit your radiator hose, heater or radiator hoses could fail and it could possibly cause your throttle linkage to bind; and none of these would be fun, particularly not at the track. The transmission mounts available on the LMPERFORMANCE web site for your iconic Firebird and Camaro from PROTHANE are of a much smoother product and much more resilient with its polyurethane fabrication and sui generis built in safety interlock feature making them ideally suited to the performance driver who uses his Firebird and Mustang on the strip or for racing. Also available on the LMPERFORMANCE web site are the motor mounts for your Mustang made with steel constructed housing and the primo quality PROTHANE bushings, and urethane Insulation and they are a sure bet for the discriminating driver who wants a more reliable motor mount that will stand up to the harsh treatment it gets at the track. If you have a Camaro, check out these great BMR Motor Mounts that will give you a boost in performance!

About Prothane

Prothane was launched in 1991 when it started offering superior performance urethane based products. At the time, they started with less than 100 part numbers. Using its special formulations, precise engineering methods and attention to customer’s needs has fueled their growth. They now offer an extensive line of urethane based performance products for cars and trucks. Whether it’s sport compact, European, or domestic car or truck, Prothane has products for it!

How Are Urethane Colors Rated?

Prothane kits are stocked only in red or black urethane. (Hardness/Durometer Ratings Are Not Affected By The Color)

Does Urethane Squeak?

High frequency vibrations that can be heard rather than felt cause squeaking. It is usually created by lack of lubrication, poor installation, incorrect part, or urethane that may be too hard for the application.

Research and Development

Prothane Research and Development focuses on finding the weak and high stressed areas of vehicles’ components where rubber bushings and mounts have become worn and damaged. Using the OEM part as a base, they develop a high performance part to replace it.

Engineering and Design Process

They design all their high-performance components using SolidWorks, a three-dimensional CAD based program. This makes sure all of their research and innovative designs will create the ultimate performance replacement parts for any vehicle.

In-House Machining and Manufacturing

All of their products’ machining, and manufacturing processes are performed in-house in the USA. This allows a high-quality product from beginning to end.

Ford

These are some of the items you can find at LMPerformance for your Ford

The Ford Motor Company, founded by Henry Ford on June 16, 1903 and based in Dearborn, Michigan, is an American automaker and the world's fifth largest automaker based on worldwide vehicle sales. It is one of the most profitable companies in the world, as well as being one of the few to survive the Great Depression and it is the largest family-controlled company in the world, having been in continuous family control for over 110 years. Ford now encompasses two brands: Ford and Lincoln. Late Model Performance can provide parts for 54 models of these American icons whether for street use, racing or off-road the answer to your quest is here.

The quintessential Mustang is well represented at Late Model Performance with a capacious array of parts for chassis and suspension, drive train and transmission, electronics and tuners, interior and exterior accessories, engine components, exhausts, gauges, lighting and induction parts. With body kits from Street Scene, 3dCarbon, RK Sport, Xenon, DURAFLEX, Couture, Carbon Creations the proud Mustang owner has a wide array of types of kits to choose from. The first thing you need to do is decide on the type of material whether fiberglass, polyurethane, ABS plastic, carbon fiber and composite. Polyurethane parts, like the ones manufactured by 3dCarbon, Xenon, Couture and RK Sport, are heavier than fiberglass, not necessarily ideal for racing if weight reduction is the main objective; plus, specialized preparation is required for paint to adhere correctly and it is susceptible to warping under extreme heat. It is; however, extremely flexible, virtually unbreakable and resistant to abrasion and temperature, oil, gasoline and other solvents. Carbon fiber parts, like the one available from the renowned manufacturer Carbon Creations, are ideal for racing because of their extreme strength and light weight; plus, they come clear-coated and don't need to be painted. The significant downside to carbon fiber is its higher cost of production resulting in a more expensive product. The composite creation by Extreme Dimensions, DURAFLEX, is an excellent choice because it is a unique blend of flex resins, fiberglass and plastic that is much stronger than fiberglass and has maximum flexibility; and additionally, it comes with a black primer finish for ease of painting.

Bumping up the horsepower on your Mustang just makes sense and Late Model Performance can help you do that with PYPES’ Exhaust systems, one of the paramount manufacturers of exhaust systems on the market for price and superior quality. PYPES' Mustang exhaust products are made of stainless steel materials for quality and durability and PYPES crossover pipes include dual 409 stainless reinforcement plates at the welds where they are needed most and all pipes are mandrel bent, to allow for the maximum flow of exhaust gasses, which boosts acceleration. With the conjunctive Crossover design it is not unusual to see an increase of anywhere between fifteen and twenty-five HP. A straight path is afforded by the Open Port Exhaust when it is uncapped; however, but you still benefits from the crossover technology and can expect between ten to fifteen HP. An options that is available on this system is the PYPES PYPE Bomb which utilizes a unique louvered core resonated dual wall 304 stainless tip to give you that American Muscle Car sound but not that popping associated with other lesser kits.

The Loudmouth Exhaust by SLP Performance has transformed many cars like the CAMARO SS into modern muscle machines and you can do that too for your Ford car whether it is a CAMARO or not. The exceptional properties; such as exceptional flow characteristics, lighter weight, ease of installation, stainless steel in its entirety and hand-polished dual wall tips in addition to its incredible sound make it an easy choice when thinking about a performance exhaust system.

Another undisputable winner, B&B (Billy Boat) produces a variety of exhaust systems for your Ford, whether it be a Crew Cab, Super Cab, F-150, Expedition or the Mustang. You can be assured of top quality and performance with a B&B exhaust since they are manufactured using the highest yet most practicable quality stainless steel and are engineered to exact specifications when mandrel bent so that you will have undisturbed air flow.
