LS9 Supercharger Kit
GM Performance Parts’ (GMPP) LS9 supercharger kit enables engine builders to use the power-adder behind the Corvette ZR1 on any engine with LS3 heads or the LS3 port configuration – including some engines using GMPP’s LSX-LS3 or LSX-LS9 six-bolt heads. The supercharger uses Eaton’s advanced Twin-Vortices Series (TVS) four-lobe rotor design for a broader, more efficient performance range. “Enthusiasts have been asking about this exciting performance component since the Corvette ZR1 debuted,” said Dr. Jamie Meyer, product integration manager for GM Performance Parts. “Our LSX376 crate engine was developed specifically for forced induction, so the LS9 supercharger kit complements it perfectly to create a robust and very powerful engine.” For more information on the GM Performance Parts LS9 Supercharger, go to www.gmperformanceparts.com.
As any racer will tell you, to add performance to any car, subtract weight. The original steel body panels of the ’69 Camaro are heavy. These aluminum panels from Classic Industries drastically reduce weight and improve performance while maintaining an original appearance.
Each kit includes L/R fenders, hood, deck lid, header panel, valance panel, and both front and rear bumpers for ’69 Camaro models. These beautiful new panels are available in your choice of anodized finish or EDP coated and with either a 2- or 4-inch cowl-induction–style hood. Order yours today by calling 866-656-1707 or go to www.classicindustries.com.
Chassisworks’ ’70- 81 Camaro frame system is made up of three separate subframe systems that can be used individually with the factory subframe and rear frame rails or used collectively to form a bumper-to-bumper full-frame assembly. The system uses Chassisworks g-Machine front suspension, which can accommodate front tires, 295 to 351 max, and the Chassisworks g-Bar rear suspension system makes room for rear tires of 335 on up to 365 max (when available), and bolt-in subframe connectors. For more information on Chassisworks’ Second-gen Camaro Frame System, call Chris Alston’s Chassisworks at 888-388-0205, or go to www.cachassisworks.com.
Engineers at RHS have recently designed a 23-degree aluminum head for small-block Chevy applications that is CNC-ported from the factory. The precision, accuracy, and durability of the new RHS Pro Elite 23-Degree Aluminum Cylinder Heads are derived from the precision CNC-porting of the intake and exhaust runners, as well as the combustion chamber. The CNC-ported 228cc intake and 82cc exhaust runners optimize volume, atomization and velocity, while the 69cc combustion chambers are CNC-ported to relieve valve shrouding that occurs in “as cast” chambers when the edge of a valve is in close proximity to the combustion chamber wall. For complete information on the RHS 23-degree aluminum small-block Chevy head, call RHS at 877-776-4323 or visit them online at www.racingheadservice.com.

Cooler LS Juice
ZEX has designed the new LS Series Perimeter Plate Nitrous System with three advanced nitrous technologies, each of which gives LS applications a significant power advantage over conventional plate systems.

LS Space Saver
The new LS MAF Conversion Kits from Spectre Performance make LS swaps easy and can save up to 4 inches on the front of the motor thanks to an LS7 blade-style drop-in MAF. Designed for use with Spectre’s 4-inch Muscle Car Cold Air Intake Kits, or any aluminum intake that the sensor pad can be welded to, the MAFS conversion kits are recommended for applications which require more airflow, additional space, or are highly customized. Spectre blade-style MAF kits offer a more robust design and are less prone to flow sensitivities than the standard boot-style MAFS and are available in both 3-wire and 5-wire configurations. For more information, call Spectre Performance at 909-673-9800 or click on over to www.spectreperformance.com.
