Adjustable Cog-Swapper
Just when we thought there was nothing new in the short throw shifter market, LSR Performance sent us some pictures of its new Tri-Ax shifter for the 2010 Camaro. Made from billet steel, the new Tri-Ax shifter is fully adjustable in both height and throw, which means you can tailor it to your driving style and position. The shift knob can be lowered from the stock height down to an inch lower, while the throw can be reduced anywhere from 20 to 33 percent. Four different shift knob options are available, including the stock knob, and everything is made right here in the USA.

Pump it Up
Having trouble keeping your highly modified LS cool? PRW Industries has just released its new high-flow aluminum water pump for the Gen III and IV LS family, which promises to significantly improve cooling on the street or track. Built from a pressure-injected aluminum alloy, these pumps feature precision cast-iron impellers, steel hubs, and heavy-duty 3/4-inch shafts with sealed roller ball bearings. Available in both polished and "as-cast," be sure to check these out the next time you think about doing a cooling upgrade.

Street Eliminator
Let's face it, we all want race car parts on our street cars, but sometimes they just can't handle the abuse of daily driving. Take regular C-Clip eliminators for example, which are usually built with ball bearings that end up leaking and failing during prolonged street use. Enter Strange Engineering and its new Street/Strip C-Clip eliminator kit, which utilizes Timken tapered bearings capable of withstanding severe side loads and constant use. These kits are available for most 10- and 12-bolt GM rears and can even be ordered with a complete axle kit directly from Strange.

Crank it up
Callies Performance has officially reintroduced its LSc line of crankshafts, which offer a ton of strength in a budget-friendly package. Available in both 3.825-inch and 4-inch strokes these cranks come fully machined and nitrided for enhanced strength and wear resistance. Depending on your PCM and sensor combination, you can order your crank with either a 24- or 58-tooth reluctor wheel, which makes for a smooth install right out of the box. Of course, the best part here is the value, with the entire assembly coming in at under $550.

Retrofit Super Pan
Ever tried to do an LS retrofit, only to realize your stock oil pan won't clear anything in the engine bay? Check out the new cast-aluminum retrofit oil pan from JZ MotorWorks. Featuring a 5.5-inch sump, this pan is a full 2 inches shorter than the current "muscle car pan" while still retaining a factory style screw-on oil filter adapter, eliminating the need for a remote mounting solution. Perfect for almost any GM swap including S-10s as well as B-, G-, and F-bodies, this unit ships complete with the required oil pan baffle, pickup tube, and drain plug.

Perfect Plate
Looking for that last perfect interior piece for your '83-92 Camaro? Hawks Third Generation probably has you covered, especially after launching its new four-speed automatic shifter plate. The new plate is an exact reproduction of the original and comes with white ('83-89) or yellow ('90-92) print depending on what year you need. Best of all, these plates won't cost you an arm and a leg, and they are guaranteed to refresh your tired center console area.
