July 2015 n Performance & Hotrod Business n 39 Jeff RoetHlisBeRgeR Turn One Inc., Saginaw, Michigan PHB: Has Turn One introduced any completely new steering systems lately? Turn One has released a power steering pump for Chrysler SRT8 engines (2005- '11 model years) and Pontiac GTO (2005- '06 model years). We have also released our Vari-Flow Adjustable Flow valve that allows for flow rate adjustments from 0.5gpm to 3gpm in 0.5gpm increments. In addition to the Vari-Flow, Turn One will be releasing an adjustable-effort steering gear in Fall 2015 that has been approved for NASCAR use. This steering gear will allow for effort changes from "one-finger" steering to "manual effort" steering. PHB: What should shops consider when selecting a steering system for their customer's project vehicle or for an original restoration project? First, the shop would need to determine the application of the vehicle. For instance, will the vehicle be used for street, track or both? This plays a role in determining which power steering system requirements will need to be met. The best thing to do for an original restoration project would be to rebuild the original components and bring them back to factory specifications. PHB: What alternatives to a com- pletely new system are available for customers with limited budgets? Turn One offers power steering rebuild- ing services to return factory components back to factory specifications. In some cases, Turn One can even upgrade your existing pump to perform better than factory. PHB: When is it a better idea to replace the original front end and steering with a complete modern front suspension and steering? When you are looking for performance. That would be the best time to upgrade the steering and/or suspension with after- market performance parts. | 270-781-9741 THE AMAZING INTRODUCING Holley's patent pending fuel reservoir system designed to reduce fuel starvation issues present in hard cornering, acceleration, stopping, inclines, and low fuel conditions! STOP FUEL STARVATION! • Greatly reduces potential for air to enter into fuel system which can result in poor engine performance and/or stalling • Surface tension and fluid wicking allow the HydraMat to continue to draw fuel from the tank or cell even when part of the mat is uncovered • As an area of the HydraMat is uncovered, tiny pores seal off through surface tension, forcing fuel to be drawn from other areas of the mat where fuel continues to be available • Unique internal reservoir assists in keeping fuel available at the pickup even under extreme fuel slosh conditions • Eliminates need for specialty reservoirs, sumps and pick up pumps saving cost and greatly reducing complexity Race Proven! See all the secrets of the HydraMat at!
