g-Connection

Chris Alston’s Chassisworks brings a new level of chassis stiffening systems to ’67- 81 Camaro/Firebirds. This system is designed for vehicles equipped with OEM or Chassisworks' front frame clips.

Cool Coating

Eastwood’s new Internal Exhaust Coating features an exclusive formula developed with thermal coating properties to cover the inside of exhaust system components that traps heat inside the tubing in both new and used exhaust systems. The results offer reduced radiated heat from headers and exhaust manifolds leading to lower underhood temperatures and less heat absorption by nearby parts and surfaces. Eastwood’s Internal Exhaust Coating also prevents rust and corrosion from forming on the inside of the exhaust system, thus extending the life of the components. Included is their exclusive 2-foot-long extension hose with a wide-fan, 360-degree aerosol extension nozzle, which allows easy application. For more info, call Eastwood at 800.343.9353 (source code CP 712) or go to eastwood.com/cp712.

Clearanced Cooler

Improved Racing has released a low-profile oil cooler adapter for the GM LS series engine. Designed to clear large-diameter long-tube headers, the adapter provides nearly half an inch of additional clearance over competing products. The unit’s angled cutout maximizes clearance where headers typically interfere. To further maximize clearance, the traditional aluminum gasket has been eliminated in favor of Viton O-rings, and the mounting holes are counter-bored. The adapter features two 1⁄8-inch NPT ports for sensors or a turbo oil supply line. It is machined from billet 6061 T6 aluminum and is anodized in black for durability. Anodized aluminum O-ring adapter fittings for -10 AN or -8 AN lines are included. For more info, call Improved Racing at 407.494.3278 or go to improvedracing.com.

The housing end is precision CNC-machined from billet steel to ensure the highest strength possible. The ZR1 drive hub uses a forged housing and dual bearing packs with 33 splines. It also incorporates the ZR1 active wheel speed sensor. This feature allows the addition of anti-lock brakes and traction control. Unlike other floater assemblies, no regular maintenance is required. Priced at $5,499, the Speed Tech Full Chicane 9-inch rearend will make a great addition to your Pro Touring Camaro.

Cooler Hose Ends

That’s why Summit Racing Equipment has introduced its own brand of -AN hose ends with a black hard-anodized finish. They are ideal for use in street-driven and race vehicles and will increase the underhood “cool factor” exponentially, especially when used with stainless steel braided hose or black-finish braided and smooth hose. Summit Racing offers two types of -AN ends and adapters: Swivel-style hose ends and Twist-tite hose ends. Both types are available in straight, 45 degree, and 90 degree configurations and are available in the following sizes: -4 AN, -6 AN, -8 AN, -10 AN, -12 AN, and -16 AN. Summit Racing offers its own brand of Braided Nylon and Twist-tite hose in black to complete any plumbing job, and has a large selection of black-anodized -AN hose ends, adapters, and hose from Russell, Fragola, Aeroquip, and Earl’s.

ZL1 Flexplate

When retrofitting the ’12 Chevy Camaro ZL1 for racing with an automatic transmission, the TCI GM LSA Flexplate is a must. Engineered to prevent runout, ring gear bounce, and other damaging problems, these flexplates offer unmatched strength and protection. Thicker than factory flexplates, the SFI 29.1-approved TCI plates are precision-ground from ultra-durable A36 steel. They are dynamically balanced for performance and electro-coated for protection against the elements. This is the perfect upgrade for any increased horsepower ’12 Camaro ZL1 that has been converted to an automatic transmission. The flexplate is also a valuable tool for vehicles other than Camaros with LSA engine transplants and automatic transmissions. Visit tciauto.com, or call 888.776.9824 for more information.
