May 2014 n Performance & Hotrod Business n 107 LS7 CNC-Ported Cylinder Heads RHS, Memphis, Tenn., presents its Pro Elite 3.900-Inch Bore LS7 CNC-Ported Cylinder Heads. The rectangular port heads bolt on all GM LS 5.7- to 6.0-liter blocks and provide up to 100 hp. Offered in CNC and P-Port (unfinished runner) versions, the intake ports are raised 0.220 inches from the stock location for a straight line of sight into the cylinder, and utilize the LS 6-bolt head design compatible with the RHS LS Race Block and GM LSX Block. Hemi Throttle Body FAST, Memphis, Tenn., introduces its 87mm LT Throttle Body that expands the FAST Big Mouth line to include late- model 5.7-/6.1-/6.4-liter Hemi applica- tions. Offering an increased throttle bore size for added horsepower on EFI systems such as XFI on Hemi engines, the throttle body provides an easy way to switch an engine from the factory throttle-by-wire to cable pull for com- patibility with aftermarket ECUs. The 87mm bore allows increased airflow to enable higher horsepower. It features a black powder-coat finish and raised FAST logo. Touchscreen Controls Rottler Mfg., Kent, Wash., offers its SG9M and SG8M Cylinder Head Valve Seat & Guide Machines that now feature touchscreen controls. The machines have been proven from high-production to one-man shops, including Jasper Engines and AJPE Alan Johnson Performance Engineering. The new touchscreen con- trols are a result of the company's contin- ual innovation and product enhancement. High-Performance Battery Chargers CTEK, Twinsburg, Ohio, and NorthStar Battery introduce a partnership to sell a line of High-Performance 12-Volt Battery Chargers. The new NorthStar Battery Chargers by CTEK are multi-step, fully automatic primary switch mode chargers for batteries that can support fast charging. The new chargers are weather-resistant with unique Supply and Reconditioning modes, and a patented desulphation function. LS Engine Swap Pan Holley Performance Products, Bowling Green, Ky., presents its Front Clearance Oil Pan for GM LS engine swaps. The new pan has all the same attributes of the company's original LS Retro-Fit oil pan, plus a redesigned front for additional clearance. It provides maximum clearance for vehicles where the steering linkage is behind the engine crossmember. The factory- style cast aluminum pans use factory gaskets, filter mounting and cooler ports and provide structural rigidity. They come with an oil baffle and pump pickup, and specialty racing baffles are available. Motor & Transmission Mount Set Energy Suspension, San Clemente, Calif., presents its early Ford small-block V-8 Motor and Transmission Mount Set. Designed to stabilize the drivetrain and achieve more power-to-the-ground performance, the poly- urethane set fits mid-1960s to early '70s small- block Ford/Mercury vehicles. The mounts are durable, yet more compliant than solid mounts and help prevent drivetrain damage by stabiliz- ing the engine and transmission. Race-proven, Hyper-Flex polyurethane and zinc-plated metal components are designed to outlast rubber mounts. GM Pro Coil Springs QA1 Precision Products, Lakeville, Minn., presents its 600- and 650-pound GM Pro Coil Springs, made in the USA. Designed for GM coilovers, the springs provide performance-style handling and support vehicles with heavier front-end weights.
