Get A Little Cooler

Flex-A-Chill Coolant Additive

chp 01 March 2012 Chevy High Performance Parts Coolant Additive 2/8

Flex-a-lite introduces its first-ever engine-coolant additive. Flex-a-chill delivers cooling and protection that reduces the temperature of the cylinder heads without the need of additional coolant gels. With a lower pH level (8.5) than many competing products, Flex-a-chill is designed specifically to protect your expensive aluminum engine parts and radiator from electrolysis that corrodes the parts from the inside out. The formula also contains organic compounds that will prevent contaminates, such as calcium and magnesium from developing into scales that clog your cooling system. Flex-a-chill is a “bubble buster” for the water in your cooling system, providing improved contact, and better contact means better heat transfer by as much as 20 degrees F.

Fresh Look

Aluminum LS Valve Covers

chp 03 O  March 2012 Chevy High Performance Parts Valve Covers 4/8

Holley’s cast-aluminum valve covers for GM LS engines provide a fresh, refined look without the need to relocate the coils. There’s no question the factory “coil on cover” design give the LS that signature high-tech look, but the factory brackets and coil location leave room for improvement. They incorporate a radiused shape, angled coil mounting, and a billet fill cap. Plus, the coils mount directly to the cover with no need for a bracket in-between. They fit most popular LS-series engines and come in Black Krinkle, satin, natural cast, and polished or paint to match your vehicle’s theme.

Upper RPM

Short Travel Race Hydraulic Lifters for SBC, LS1, and BBC

chp 06 O  March 2012 Chevy High Performance Parts Hydraulic Lifters 7/8

Short Travel Hydraulic Roller Lifters from COMP Cams are engineered specifically to perform at higher engine speeds. When performance engines are equipped with hydraulic lifters, high rpm is often limited by the incorrect position of the lifter’s internal piston, as the lifter inevitably “pumps up”. This improper location results in open valves and therefore leads to lost power to potential engine failure. The new Short Travel Race Hydraulic Roller Lifters limit that internal movement to a minimum, which cuts down on these issues and allows higher engine rpm.

Under Pressure

Liquid-Filled Gauge Kit

chp 07 O  March 2012 Chevy High Performance Parts Guage 8/8

Serious racers know that optimum nitrous system performance is generated when nitrous bottle pressure is maintained between 900 and 1,000 psi. To monitor this accurately, ZEX released a liquid-filled gauge option for their popular nitrous pressure gauge kit. The gauge offered in this kit is not only more accurate, but the liquid filling helps protect the gauge’s delicate internal components from severe vibration, commonly found in race cars and serious street/strip type vehicles. The ZEX liquid-filled gauge kit is specifically designed for AN-4 sized nitrous delivery lines and includes the 0- to 1,500-psi range gauge and an inline AN-4 adapter.
