Block Huggers

The Hooker LS Cast Iron Exhaust Manifolds are the perfect solution if you are looking for manifolds that can fit in a tight engine bay or where maintenance-free characteristics are desired. They are designed to hug the engine block so they fit into a wide variety of replacement and engine–swap applications. Their contoured design aims the exhaust directly at the exit port for improved flow. Being cast iron means they will provide years of leak–free performance with less underhood noise than traditional headers. The manifolds are available in five finish options: cast-iron gray ceramic, silver ceramic, titanium ceramic, black ceramic, and as cast.

Shocking Transformation

QA1 is proud to announce that all of their popular aluminum shocks have undergone a major design transformation and now have multiple valving options for many different race and street applications. This new design provides 18 clicks of adjustment per adjuster knob and offers an improved operating range that has been optimized to enhance performance by providing a softer ride at the low end of operation while retaining a very firm high end for performance and handling applications. Each adjustment has been carefully defined to provide the ideal force curve to maximize performance. In addition, the adjustment mechanism itself has been improved with smoother operation and the addition of a positive stop. This adds up to improved performance across the entire line of QA1 aluminum shocks. For additional information, call 952.985.5675 or visit qa1.net.

Atomic EFI

MSD’s Atomic EFI system was designed with two goals: simplicity and performance. Simplicity was achieved when they rewrote the industry standard for easy installation and programming. Performance was served through improved driveability from idle to full-throttle blasts. The throttle body features a common four-barrel square-bore flange for a universal fit. They incorporated the ECU into the throttle body to reduce the wiring and connections. While they were at it, the four main sensors were grouped inside the ECU for even less underhood clutter and wiring. The Atomic comes with a compact handheld monitor that allows you to select a number of parameters to match your engine combination. This will get the engine to fire up and it will start learning your combination immediately. See more Atomic EFI information at atomicefi.com or call 915.855.712.
