0803chp_07_z Shocks 1/12

What it is
Rod Shocks coilovers for early Novas, Chevelles, and Camaros.

Why we like it
Don't let the name fool you; these coilovers are offered in both Comfort and Sport models and even allow you to adjust the ride height.

What we'll do with it
Associate Publisher Jonathan Ozeretny keeps telling us he's going to get his hands on an early Nova. We doubt it'll happen, but if and when it does, we'll install a set and teach him a thing or two about corner carving.

0803chp_10_z Couplings 2/12

What it is
Clamshell quick-disconnect couplings.

Why we like it
Who doesn't like quick-release anything, especially when it comes to AN fittings? XRP's latest creation features a threadless, fixed-cavity design for full flow, with no restrictions whatsoever.

What we'll do with it
The next time we're playing with braided lines, you can bet we'll want to give the Clamshells a test-fitting, regardless of the application.

0803chp_11_z Digital_degree 3/12

What it is
Digital degree system.

Why we like it
Installing a camshaft dot-to-dot is a generally accepted practice, but let's face it, unless you degree your 'stick to exacting specs, you're not taking full advantage of your camshaft. This piece appears to be user-friendly and claims to precisely calculate and display the intake centerline in crankshaft degrees to 0.1 degree.

What we'll do with it
Considering it's a rather unique tool that we've never had a chance to experiment with, we'll set up a friendly in-house competition using a conventional degree wheel and see how off we were from the required specs.

0803chp_09_z Caliper 4/12

What it is
Billet aluminum four-piston calipers for first-, second-, and third-gen Camaros and '78-87 G-bodies, with late-model GM trucks in the future.

Why we like it
It has a lightweight construction, center bridge bolts that reduce caliper flex in heavy breaking, and stainless steel pistons, which help to keep brake fluid from boiling.

What we'll do with it
Staffer Nelson just about tripped over himself when he we first noticed MP's latest offering. Once he gets his third-gen back up and running, we expect nothing less than a detailed report with before and after brake numbers.
