Ultra HP

A total of 30 new features and upgrades have been engineered into Holley’s new Aluminum Ultra HP carburetor. Most notable are the all-aluminum construction, which makes them 38 percent lighter, and totally redesigned fuel bowls that increase fuel capacity by 20 percent. The fuel bowls incorporate 10 new features including internal baffling to help control fuel slosh, a fuel trough to direct fuel to the jets, and a fuel shelf, which minimizes aeration and promotes more consistent metering. The air bleeds have been moved outward for a smoother transition of airflow into the venturi and contoured hex-head squirter screws have been added for streamlined airflow as well. They’re available in an all-new Hard Core Gray hard coat anodized finish with black billet for superior corrosion protection. They’re also available in natural tumble-polished aluminum with your choice of black or red metering blocks and base plate and come in 600, 650, 750, 850, and true 950 cfm.

Locked and Loaded

From the broad range of products by Chris Alston’s Chassisworks comes a selection of billet quick-release steering wheel hubs that feature a unique polygon-indexing mechanism with a positive-locking collar latch to create a hub system that eliminates play and is much easier to use than pin-lock designs. The billet steering shaft adapter is designed for welded installation with 0.75-inch ODx0.049-inch wall steering-shaft tubing and features an engraved orientation arrow on the indexing post. A broad spring-loaded hub collar must be manually compressed as the hub is placed onto the shaft adapter and provides a positive click, indicating that the hub is correctly latched. Multiple hub styles are available. Billet hub and adapter sets start at $69. For complete details visit cachassisworks.com or call 888.388.0205.

Quick-Release Extinguisher

A portable fire extinguisher doesn’t really make sense if you can’t use it quickly and safely in an emergency. Mac’s Custom Tie-Downs’ new Quick-Release Fire Extinguisher Bracket combines Mac’s trademark rugged construction with the convenience of a quick-release tab and the ability to accommodate most standard hand-held extinguishers. Like all Mac’s products, the quick-release bracket is made in the USA and features CNC-machined billet aluminum construction and stainless steel hardware. The bracket is available with tubular or panel mounts for use on rollbars, cages, floorpans, or motorhome interiors within easy reach. The aircraft-style ball-detent pin maintains a snug fit for maximum security but can be removed with one hand. Simply pull the pin and you’re ready to put out a fire.

Drop-In Fuel Pump

It’s here! Fifth-gen Camaro in-tank Stealth Fuel Systems from Aeromotive. Hot Rod magazine listed the fuel system on these modern muscle cars as one of the “top 10 weak points.” In fact, it’s recommended that you upgrade your fuel system at 550 hp. The new Camaro system is a complete drop-in, single fuel pump assembly for ’10 and later Camaros. The system provides a single A1000 or Eliminator fuel pump capable of supporting big horsepower, and it drops right into your factory tank. It still incorporates the factory jet siphon system, includes an integral 100-micron pre-pump filter, and an ORB-08 return line port. Now you can plumb a true return-style system into your Camaro to support extra power without the worry of the siphon system while maintaining your factory fuel tank.

Fifth-Gen Street/Strip Converter

The performance and reliability of TCI StreetFighter torque converters are now available for ’10- 11 Chevy Camaros. Built tough enough to handle more radically prepared street/race applications, furnace-brazed components increase the unit’s strength to withstand high-horsepower and nitrous applications. The extra-durable, heat-treated splines, sprag races, and hub will stand up to harder launches off the line, while the aftermarket billet front and clutch assembly stop the chance of converter clutch slippage under heavy throttle racing requirements. But with its combination of strength and drivability, the StreetFighter torque converters offer excellent performance for street use as well. The StreetFighter torque converter is a must whenever horsepower has been increased. For more information visit tciauto.com, or call them at 888.776.9824.

Ultra-Light Timing Light

Plus-size for Performance

Wilwood Engineering announces new, heavy-duty 14-inch diameter iron rotors in two styles for increased braking performance on today’s vehicles using larger-diameter wheels.

The SRP rotor is zinc-washed, cross-drilled, and slotted for an aggressive high-tech look for the street, while the GT rotor handles the higher temperatures encountered in track days and serious competition events. Both the SRP and GT versions are available in a choice of two thicknesses: 1.10 inches and 1.25 inches, and are cast with Wilwood’s staggered, directional vane technology to improve airflow for cooler running.
