Hose 'em Down
Anyone who has worked with braided-steel hose lines knows how frustrating installing hose ends can be. Sure, braided hoses may look great when fitted to your engine, but fighting with even slightly frayed braided-steel hoses can cause you to wish for simple neoprene hoses instead. To the rescue are the new Powerhouse Products braided hose and fitting assembly toolkits, which quickly and neatly install hose ends without any of the hassle. Two kits are available, each designed to work with three different hose sizes: small (-4, -6, and -8 AN) and large (-10, -12, and -16 AN). To use the Powerhouse Products braided hose and fitting assembly toolkit, the tool is first separated into its two halves, lubricated, then fitted with the appropriate-size hose end. Mount the tool in a vise to keep it steady, feed the end of the braided-steel hose into the opening in the tool, and twist it until it stops-completing the installation. Simply remove the tool from the vise to reveal your freshly installed hose end. For more information, contact Powerhouse at 800-872-7223, www.powerhouseproducts.com.
Get In Gear
Looking to bump up the horsepower on your '92-and-newer two- and four-valve Modular Ford engines? Ford's 4.6/5.4L two- and four-valve engines have the capacity to make huge horsepower. But with the factory timing gear set up, you can't "tune" your camshaft timing, a critical adjustment that affects engine performance. Now that's all changed with the introduction of the new COMP Cams Ford 4.6/5.4L SOHC and DOHC adjustable cam gear set, which provides up to 12 degrees of camshaft advance or retard for a 24-degree total window of adjustability. The ability to adjust the camshaft timing is particularly important when performance engine modifications are completed, such as when decking the block or milling the heads, procedures that can change camshaft-to-crankshaft centerline positioning and alter cam timing. The new COMP Cams Ford 4.6/5.4L SOHC and DOHC adjustable cam gear sets install in exactly the same way as the original factory gears, come equipped with a cam gear sensor, and work with the Ford OE timing chains. Each gear features a billet aluminum hub and steel outer gear for outstanding durability and light weight. For more information, contact COMP Cams at 800-999-0853, www.compcams.com.

It Puts The Lotion On The Skin
Skin MD Natural is not your typical hand or body lotion. It is, in fact, a completely new category of product that looks like a lotion, but acts very differently on the skin. Most lotions only attempt to artificially add moisture to the skin. Shielding lotions instead are designed to create an invisible, protective barrier that helps keep harmful chemicals out and keep natural moisture in, letting Mother Nature provide the necessary healing to repair skin at its deepest levels. Skin MD Natural shielding lotion helps stop harmful chemicals such as petroleum products, paints, solvents, and even soaps from absorbing into and irritating your skin. It also makes cleanup easier after working on your vehicle. It lasts for hours, is fragrance-free, and is non-greasy. As well as protecting your skin, it's also very healing; one of its main ingredients is aloe. For more info, call 800-540-4790, or visit www.SkinMDNatural.com.
