Solid Roller Lifters COMP Cams, Memphis, Tenn., presents its Sportsman Solid Roller Lifters. They are designed as premium-quality, high-value components for Sportsman and professional racing along with high-end street machines. The lifters are available in both needle bearing and bushing configurations. They are offered in two configurations: a traditional needle bearing axle/wheel design or an optional bronze bushing axle/wheel setup. Each design features two pressurized EDM oil feeds as well as an edge-orifice feed to the wheel. Drag Racing Hub & Brake Kit Mark Williams Enterprises, Louisville, Colo., offers its new Drag Racing Front Hub Assembly and Disc Brake Kit designed for fifth-generation Camaros including the COPO. The kits provide less weight and reduced rolling resistance. The lightweight hub assembly is a direct replacement for the OEM hub and features an aircraft aluminum housing, triple low drag bearings and a lightened, heat-treated aircraft alloy hub. The brake kit includes the Slot- Drive disc attachment system that allows components to expand and contract without creating warping stress. Smaller Ring Packs MAHLE Motorsports, Fletcher, N.C., presents its PowerPak Smaller Ring Packs, now available in 1.0mm, 1.0mm and 2.0mm rings packages in many of the popular PowerPak piston assemblies. The shorter, narrower rings are more conformable, allowing them to maintain increased and more consistent contact with the ring groove and cylinder wall. The result is improved combustion sealing and oil control, and a reduction in frictional drag and weight. 10-Piece Screw Extractor Kit Malco Products, Annandale, Minn., presents its fast and effective 10-Piece Screw Extractor Kit. Five extractors with matching drill bits accommodate threaded fastener diameters from 1/4- to 5/8-inch. The left-handed cobalt bits create a pilot hole and also loosen or even remove stripped-out heads or headless fasteners with left-turning momentum. Straight fluted extractors provide two-way bite in the pilot hole to loosen a frozen screw or bolt. Classic Series Accessories Edelbrock, Torrance, Calif., offers its popular Classic Series Air Cleaners and Valve Covers, now available in a natural as-cast finish. Edelbrock first produced the valve covers in the late-1950s and they continue to be a hit today. They're made of heavy- gauge sand-cast aluminum in the USA at Edelbrock's foundry for premium quality, fit and finish. new/mc/accessories/vcc_classic.shtml Power Stroke Side Charge Pipes Sinister Diesel, Roseville, Calif., introduces its new, high-performance Hot and Cold Side Charge Pipes for 2003-'07 Ford Power Stroke 6.0-liter engines. The new intercooler pipes are 100-percent mandrel bent aluminum tubing that provides unrestricted airflow from the turbo to the engine, eliminating engine lag caused by restrictive or leaking factory charge pipes. The long-lasting aluminum pipes deliver cool air for improved efficiency, horsepower and fuel economy, and are finished with a Sinister Blue powder coat. Wheelie Bar Wheels Engine Works, Piney Flats, Tenn., offers its Wheelie Bar Wheels that are made in the USA from solid billet 6061-T6 aircraft-grade material and designed to replicate the front wheels of any race car. Each wheel is molded with a polyurethane material that won't dent or give like a rubber wheel can. The wheels have a load capacity of more than 10,000 foot-pounds, with a 4-inch outside diameter and 3/8-inch through-hole for mounting. Three styles are available. High-Flow Exhaust Manifolds Pacific Performance Engineering (PPE), Fullerton, Calif., presents its High-Flow Exhaust Manifolds with Up- Pipes that increase exhaust flow by 20 percent over stock and are 50-state emissions legal.
