As-cast Meets CNC
Edelbrock's new RPM Xtreme cylinder heads for GM LT1/LT4 engines offer the best combination of as-cast port design and custom CNC porting technology. By blending the affordability of as-cast ports with custom CNC porting in the critical areas (combustion chambers, intake entry, exhaust exit, and intake/exhaust bowls), Edelbrock engineers are able to improve airflow and overall performance. Additional features include LS1 valves and conical springs for improved airflow and high-rpm valvetrain stability. This proven combination yields a powerful cylinder head at a lower cost than typical fully CNC'd heads. The new heads are available complete, or as machined casting minus valves and springs.
Drop It Like It's Hot
Speedway Motors now offers a Chevy pickup dropped axle for '47-54 trucks that makes it easy and affordable to get your truck in the weeds. This dropped axle is designed to lower the front suspension approximately 3 inches to give your truck a stunning profile without affecting its ride quality. Built with a strong 2-inch DOM tubing center, and machined billet steel ends, this tough axle accepts stock-style kingpins and spindles with some slight modifying of the steering arms and tie rod assembly.
