Better Breathing

Big-Block Headers

chp 02 December 2011 Chevy High Performance Parts Big Block Headers 3/9

Manufactured from high-grade stainless steel, these manifolds give performance enthusiasts a superior alternative to cast-iron manifolds or noisy, leak-prone tube headers. They tuck tighter against the block than other header designs, allowing much more room for frame and steering clearance. Large, smooth 17/8-inch primary ports, combined with 3-inch outlets, result in fantastic flow characteristics and horsepower gains. Additional features include extra-thick manifold flanges, which not only eliminate leaks, but also allow the manifolds to be port-matched to the gaskets and cylinder heads, if desired. Manifolds are available highly polished or unpolished, and have standard three-bolt header flanges. Gaskets and stainless steel hardware are included with each pair.

Price: $500 (unpolished)/$600 (polished)

Good Looks

2X4 Dual-Plane For LS Powerplants

chp 03 O  December 2011 Chevy High Performance Parts Dual Pane 4/9

The technology of the LS pushrod engine is now mated with the impressive multi-carb looks and performance of the muscle car era. The Holley GM LS1/LS2/LS6 2x4V dual-plane manifold was designed in the tradition of the great dual Holley 4160 induction systems that competed on dragstrips, in Trans-Am, and at Le Mans in the ’60s. The dual-plane equal-distribution layout produces great midrange torque without compromising top end power. The LS engine architecture does not use an intake-mounted water neck or distributor so it’s perfect for two Holley carburetors or throttle bodies and this intake manifold design takes full advantage of that opportunity. Carbureted (PN 300-120) and EFI (PN 300-121) versions support a 1,500- 7,000 rpm powerband, making it appropriate for any street/performance or muscle car enthusiast.

Bright Action

High/Low Light Switch

chp 05 O  December 2011 Chevy High Performance Parts Wire 6/9

This electronic module replaces the ordinary dimmer switch. When the headlight switch is on, the module resets to the low beam circuit. Alternate momentary grounds switch between high and low beam headlight circuits. When the headlight switch is off, holding the momentary switch to the ground activates the “Flash to Pass” safety option on the high beam circuit for as long as the momentary ground is held. The module accommodates standard sealed beam and halogen headlights in two- and four-light configurations and includes a 30-amp circuit breaker. The module takes the current load off the headlight switch. Instead of passing power to the low and high beam circuits, the headlight switch simply provides a “headlights on” signal to the module. The module can be attached to other modules with the supplied locking wedge or stand alone with the included mounting bracket.

Price: $89
