54 THE SHOP MARCH 2018 LS Engine Coil Pack Heat Shield Design Engineering Inc. (DEI), Avon Lake, Ohio, offers an LS Engine Coil Pack Heat Shield that insulates and reflects heat away from the coils, effectively reducing under-hood radiant heat that can cause coil failure. Designed to greatly extend coil life over the life of the vehicle, the shield is made from double-sided aluminum and high-temperature foam core and works on both factory and aftermarket coils including MSD and ACCEL. Easy to install and sold as a pair, the pre-cut shield fits under the coil bracket and is designed to work with factory valve covers. Diesel 650 Clutch Holley/MSD, Bowling Green, Kentucky, offers the Hays Diesel 650 Clutch, a single-disc unit developed specifically to handle diesel engines that make up to 650 foot-pounds of torque. The clutch sets include a matched pressure plate and a single, heavy-duty, high-torque steel- back clutch disc for improved drivability and a true stock pedal feel for smooth, chatter-free engagement. They are available for Dodge 5.9-liter Cummins and Ford 6.0- and 7.3-liter Power Stroke applications. LS Valve Cover Conversion Kit Billet Specialties, La Grange, Illinois, offers an LS Valve Cover Conversion Kit that allows the use of perimeter-style small-block Chevrolet valve covers on LS engines while hiding the coils underneath for a classic and clean look. Recessed wire channels drop the wires, and the kit works with LS3 coils. Precision-machined from 6061-T6 billet aluminum with recessed wire channels for the plug wires and the coil harness, the made-in-the-USA kit retains the factory LS gasket for a leak-free seal and features hidden oil fill caps on each side. Stainless hardware is included. Gas Engine Additive LIQUI MOLY, Hauppauge, New York, introduces Speed Tec Gasoline gas engine additive.
