Get Pumped

Aeromotive is proud to announce the official release of their new 340 Stealth Fuel Pumps. These high-output, in-tank, electric fuel pumps are direct bolt-in replacements for more than 65 popular EFI applications. The 340 is also ideal for use as a universal replacement for applications that require more flow to support forced air power adders such as turbo and supercharged applications.

What sets the 340 Stealth Pump apart is its superior flow throughout a wide pressure range. Compared to other popular aftermarket pumps, at 40 psi the 340 boasts more than 340 gph. That’s over 30-percent more flow. This pump is ideal for applications requiring more flow while retaining the factory lines and mounting provisions available in the Original Equipment (O.E.) configuration.

How do they get so much flow from such a compact package? The 340 Fuel Pump utilizes an innovative turbine style pumping mechanism. This allows for more flow at pressure with increased durability. That’s good news for those of you with applications using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). The turbine pumping mechanism won’t be damaged due to the increased load of PWM systems.

Available in 3 different inlet styles, these pumps also come with an universal inlet filter and all drop parts for quick and easy installation.

Cleaner Coils

These new LS Coil Brackets from MSD may be the easiest option in the world to make an LS engine look better. The brackets have been designed to bolt into the stock location and get rid of that ugly stamped metal bracket.

Made with cast aluminum for strength and machined to a beautiful finish, these brackets have the look you want under the hood. The brackets can be installed in just minutes using MSD’s supplied hardware. Original Equipment coils will bolt in perfectly, but for a really great look and extra spark energy under the hood, MSD recommends their Multi-Spark Coil line.

A Cut Above

The MicroCut 600 is a real workhorse, with 40 amps of power that allows you to cut up to ½-inch steel, but it’s small size and light weight, just 22 pounds, means you can take this powerhouse anywhere. And with inverter technology it’s energy efficient—the MicroCut 600 only needs 30 amps of 220 volt power!

Infinite amperage adjustment lets you control the cutting power of the MicroCut 600. Dial the current down to 10 amps to perform precise cuts on thin gauge sheet metal. Crank the power up to 40 amps for serious frame fabrication and bracket building. Whatever projects you need to tackle, the MicroCut 600 is up to the task.

The 13-foot plasma torch for the MicroCut 600 features our new “shoulder contact” electrode and cutting tip for longer consumable life. This tip design means the arc starts instantly without high frequency, so you can start your arc right through rusty and painted metal, while reducing the possibility of damaging an on board computer or any other sensitive electrical equipment you might be cutting near. And like all HTP equipment, they back the machine with a 90-day money-back guarantee. Try the machine in your shop, if you don’t like the way it cuts, they’ll take it back, no questions asked.

Witch Doctor

If horsepower wasn’t so expensive, every truck at a show would probably have a 1,200hp mill underhood. It’s not a perfect world though, and sacrifices have to be made for the sake of saving some cash. Lunati has limited those sacrifices with the introduction of its Voodoo line of crankshafts for Chevy, Ford, and Pontiac engines.

Quality is abundant with the Voodoo cranks, starting with the 4340, non-twist alloy steel they are CNC-machined from. Lunati didn’t stop there, outfitting its Voodoo cranks with weight-reduction holes precision located in each rod journal allowing for quicker rotating assembly acceleration and improved engine acceleration. Voodoo crankshaft counterweights are profiled to reduce windage and parasitic operating loss, something typically reserved for high-end race cranks.

Not sold yet? How about more sought-after crankshaft features like micropolished bearing journals and a nitrile treatment for improved bearing journal surface strength and wear resistance? The Voodoo crankshafts are precision indexed and dynamically balanced before leaving the Lunati warehouse, too.

Heavy Duty Rear

Responding to the requests of their dealers and customers, the Heidts Automotive Group engineering team has developed a high-horsepower, universal application of the award-winning Pro-G IRS design and geometry.

The new Universal HHP IRS features a fully-welded and boxed, cut-to-fit upper cross member, heavy-duty upper and lower control arms, fully welded uprights, heavy duty constant-velocity joints and axle shafts as well as Heidts’ own cast center section that can be loaded with a wide range of gear ratios and posi-traction differentials. The HHP IRS also makes use of standard 10½-inch inboard-mounted disc brakes with four-piston Wilwood calipers. Based upon the intended vehicle application, the Heidts sales team will help the customer select the proper spring rates for the coil-over shock assemblies. To aid in custom installations, the HHP IRS is available in both 56- and 58-inch frame rail width versions.

Water-Free Car Wash

Meguiar’s has developed the all new Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere. This specially designed formula cleans and protects any vehicle without the need for water, a hose, or a bucket (in most cases).

Perfect for urban dwellers, those with limited access to water, or the hot rodder that just arrived at a cruise, Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere safely lifts away dirt and grime while leaving behind a protective layer of hydrophobic wax. In as little as 15 minutes, this new formula can morph a drab and dirty appearance into a stunning, clean and shiny car, without a drop of water. What’s more, depending on how dirty the car is, a single bottle, along with the help of a few microfiber towels can wash and wax up to five average sized cars.

To use this spray, simply mist onto the surface of the vehicle and wipe away using a Meguiar’s Supreme Shine or other high quality microfiber towel. Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere’s unique chemistry insures a scratch-free finish when used as directed, as special lubricants and cleaning agents safely loosen and then gently remove the dirt. Follow with a quick wipe from a clean, dry towel and the surface is left with a beautiful, glossy, just-waxed finish.

Heavy Handling

Trucks are the perfect application for an air suspension. The weight load can vary by several thousand pounds from trailers, people, or other cargo and with a traditional leaf spring suspension, you are forced to endure a harsh ride quality when unloaded in order to accommodate any anticipated cargo when loaded. With air suspension, however, you can adjust the spring rate via air pressure to be appropriate for any cargo load, light or heavy!

RideTech has introduced their new HD four-Link rear suspension to fit a wide variety of trucks. The HD four-link offers a huge improvement in not only ride quality, but also load capacity and handling performance as well. By virtue of its highly adaptable design and weld-on installation, it will fit a wide range of ½- to 1-ton trucks.

The HD four-link features 1½-inch diameter 0.188-inch wall DOM tube four-link bars, large durable poly bushings, 2-inch diameter ¼-inch wall tubing bridge, ¼-inch thick plate steel brackets, and Firestone airsprings with a total load capacity of around 7,000 pounds.

Popular options for the HD four-link include the new RideTech impact forged Monotube shocks, your choice of universal or model specific panhard bar kits, and a variety of compressor and control systems to fit any budget or performance level.

Stay Charged

Battery cables can be one of those things we don’t give much thought to until something goes wrong and we are left with the bitter realization that not all battery cables are created equal.

Thankfully the folks at Ron Francis Wiring have done the research for us and created the ultimate battery cable set. Their new under hood cross-link one gauge cables have a temperature rating of 255°F (underhood temperatures vary from 212°F to 240°F). They offer more current carrying capacity and less voltage drop, making them far superior to typical auto parts store or welding cable. Their high-grade lugs stay round longer, insuring a tight seal and corrosion resistance. The kit comes in top post (PN TP-6) or side post (PN SP-6) and include 6-feet of color-coded positive and negative cables (longer kits for trunk mount also available). Each cable includes matching rubber boots for added protection and a more finished look. All kits also come complete with a crimping tool, extra lugs, and heat shrink tubing.
