On the Fly Dyno

Dyno-Shaft On-Vehicle Dynamometer System

chp 02 August 2012 Chevy High Performance Parts Dyno Shaft 3/8

AEM’s Dyno-Shaft On-Vehicle Dynamometer system eliminates this guesswork by providing real, accurate readings that are produced by measuring a vehicle’s torque and rpm at the driveline, while you drive! The Dyno-Shaft is a true on-vehicle dynamometer system that delivers horsepower and torque numbers as accurately as the most respected dynamometers, with the major advantage being that it measures power while the vehicle is under operation in real-world conditions. It is not an accelerometer-based system, so it will not skew readings due to uphill or downhill transitions, crosswinds, vehicle aerodynamics, wheelspin, vehicle weight, or the myriad other factors that can affect the accuracy of GPS/accelerometer-based units.

Buckle Up

Retractable Harness Belts

chp 03 O  August 2012 Chevy High Performance Parts Belts 4/8

The Corbeau three-point retractable harness belts encompass everything you are looking for in a comfortable, stylish, and safe harness belt. The Corbeau retractable belts use an inertia reel to allow your harness belt to function like your stock belts. This allows you to move around in your car but under any sudden movements the belt locks. Corbeau takes this even further by providing a knob that allows you to change your belt from retractable mode to full-time harness mode. That means if you go to the track or off-road and don’t want your belts to retract, just turn the knob and you are in a fully functional harness belt.

Programmable Ignition

Coil-On Plug Ignition Controller

chp 07 O  August 2012 Chevy High Performance Parts Ignition 7/8

The engineers at FAST have taken the XIM to a whole new level. The coil-on plug ignition controller, originally developed for use with FAST XFI systems, is now available in a stand-alone kit for GM LS1/LS6 and LS2/LS3/LS7.These kits enable programmable control of the popular late-model coil-on plug ignition systems, independent of the fuel delivery method or any factory computer. The stand-alone XIM features easy-to-use onboard dials to create a customizable timing curve (instead of using a collection of preset curves) and to adjust a vacuum advance feature and rev limiter. This bolt-on solution to coil-on plug ignition is the easiest and most reliable way to run a carburetor or the FAST EZ-EFI. This is a complete kit; it does not require an XFI unit or OE computer. These kits are ready to run out of the box, but do allow some optional tuning features if desired.
