n Performance Products Stock your shelves with these go-fast goodies. LS Block Jeep Tuner Bully Dog Technologies, American Falls, Idaho, presents its GT tuner for Jeep applications featuring exclusive road and trail tuning for 2007-'13 Jeep Wranglers. Exclusive features include the ability to calibrate late-model Wranglers for a change in axle gear ratio without putting them into limp mode, sway bar disconnect, axle locker controls, traction control on/off, engine fan on/off, idle-up and more. The GT mounts cleanly and unobtrusively on the windshield or dash and provides real-time monitoring and feedback for a variety of parameters. Circle Track Shock Absorber QA1 Precision Products, Lakeville, Minn., presents its new 20 Series Circle Track Shock Absorbers. The 2-inch outside diameter sealed monotube shocks have a precision machined bearing mount providing ample clearance and increased strength. They are designed for racers who need a sealed shock and are looking for valving that's specific to their application. 52 n Performance Business PBMAY 2.indd 52 n Dart Machinery, Troy, Mich., introduces its LS Next Block, offering significant changes to the bottom end architecture of the LS engine platform. By eliminating the "Y-block" design and utilizing conventional main caps and oil pans, Dart's design addresses problems resulting from the engine's separated crankcase bays. Windage is greatly reduced, resulting in increased power and improved lubrication. The main webs are much stronger because the bayto-bay breathing windows are not required, allowing the cylinder barrels to be extended by 0.375 inches into the crankcase. -2 Premade Brake Lines Fragola Performance Systems, Southington, Conn., offers its new -2 Premade Brake Lines made with -2 PTFE stainless steel hose. Made in the U.S. and available with steel or aluminum -3 nuts, the lines are designed for use when increased pedal feel is desired. Offered in multiple standard and custom lengths, the lines are lightweight, with crimp ends manufactured of aerospace-quality aluminum to mil spec tolerances. Nuts are available in steel or bright dip black, red or blue aluminum. Header Bolts PROFORM/Specialty Auto Parts USA, Roseville, Mich., presents its Wedge Locking Grade 8 Header Bolts. Designed to solve the constant problem of header bolts vibrating loose, the 12-piece set of 1-inch header bolts covers GM V-6, 265-400-ci small-block, Buick, Olds, Pontiac ('79 and earlier), Mopar big-blocks 383-440 (except 413) and AMC V-8 applications using 3/8inch bolts. A 3/4-inch length is also available in 12- and 16-piece sets and are commonly used for cast iron heads. The 1-inch length bolts are recommended for aluminum heads.
