18 n Performance & Hotrod Business n February 2015 Drive Belt Belt Drives Ltd., Anaheim, California, presents its Falcon SPC (Sport Plus Carbon) Drive Belt. Designed and manufactured by Goodyear, the belt provides up to 33-percent more tensile strength than conventional ara- mid reinforced belts. Additionally, the high-temperature rubber compound provides improved flex and service life, while a patented fabric-reinforced tooth surface can increase horse- power at the rear wheels, improve wear resistance and sustain belt-pene- trating debris without breakage. GT-R Engine Upgrades Manley Performance, Lakewood, New Jersey, presents three new engine products for the Nissan GT-R. A 10mm billet Stroker Crankshaft offers a stroke of 98.4mm, and the increased displacement can contribute to significant perfor- mance gains with total reliability. The company's Pro Series Turbo Tough connecting rods are forged from 300M material and equipped with ARP2000 bolts. And Bore Grade drop-in pistons enable engine builders to precisely match the Nissan factory cylinder designations that are stamped on the block. Early-Style Saginaw Power Steering Pumps Tuff Stuff Performance Accessories, Cleveland, introduces a new line of old-style Saginaw Power Steering Pumps that are designed to fit early GM muscle cars and hot rod appli- cations. Made from 100-percent new compo- nents, the pumps feature a reservoir made from 20-gauge cold rolled steel and are furnace-brazed. The pumps have a 5/8-inch keyed shaft for use with a bolt-on pulley (not included) and have a 5/8-18 pressure port. Boss 429 Oil Pan California Pony Cars, Ontario, California, introduces a 1969-'70 Boss 429 Oil Pan with oil pick-up. The system is designed with a windage tray to keep oil from being drawn into the crankshaft at high rpms. The heavy-duty steel casing ensures protec- tion from premature damage, and each oil pan includes an oil pick-up tube designed with built-in precision fixtures and a thin wire screen that delivers increased flow. The oil pan is an exact reproduction of the original (C9AZ 6675 A). Oil Pumps Melling Performance, Jackson, Michigan, introduces a brand-new Shark Oil Pump with asymmetrical helical cut gears for small-block Chevy applications. The Shark pump offers smoother output than a traditional spur gear oil pump, along with reduced power requirements and higher volume output. The pump has a cast iron housing with steel helical cut gears, and the new gear design provides the engine with an improved flow of oil without the usual pulsing found in traditional gear pumps. Metallic Ceramic Coating Tech Line Coatings, Seymour, Tennessee, presents its CBX Metallic Ceramic Coating, designed to be used on combustion chamber surfaces. CBX is formulated for engines utilizing nitrous oxide, a supercharger or tur- bocharger. It provides a hard, durable thermal barrier over- lay to any coated component, offering reduced part tem- perature, resistance to deto- nation and increased combus- tion chamber efficiency. More efficient oxidation of fuel also occurs, leading to increased power output. CBX allows minimal transfer of heat into the coated surface.
