Those looking for a true racing clutch with factory driving characteristics for their 2010- 14 Camaro will find Quarter Master's Optimum-SR 10.4-inch single-disc LS clutch kit ideal. The kit's lighter weight (50 percent lighter than stock) creates a reduced moment of inertia (MOI), allowing the engine to rev and de-rev quicker than with the stock clutch. All these features knock seconds off the stopwatch while still delivering a stock pedal feel and chatter-free operation. Capable of holding up to 500 lb-ft of torque and 700 hp, the kit comes with the clutch, flywheel, release bearing, and release-bearing adapter. Legal for use in the Pirelli World Challenge and Continental Tire series, the clutch's race-capable design can also easily be used for street driving.

Eddie Motorsports has introduced a new line of custom billet aluminum fender/core support braces for first- and second-gen Camaros. The new fender braces are CNC-machined from the highest quality 6061 T6 aluminum. They feature a race-inspired windowed design and can be customized to fit your build style with their optional aluminum inserts. The fender braces replace the stock steel components and are a direct bolt-on part with no cutting or drilling required. These billet fender braces are sold in pairs; include stainless steel fasteners; and are available with a raw machined, highly polished finish, or in a variety of Fusioncoated or anodized colors. Kits start at just $149 per pair. You can find out more by calling 888.813.1293 or visiting eddiemotorsports.com.
Chevrolet Performance recently announced the all-new ZZ5 350 crate engine. The ZZ5 350 has the new Fast Burn cylinder head design and a beehive-type valvetrain to support greater performance and high-rpm durability. It's rated at 400 hp, a 15hp increase over the previous 350ci crate engine with earlier Fast Burn heads. The new head design with the beehive valvetrain is also included on an updated version of the ZZ383 "stroker" crate engine, which boosts power from 425 to 450 hp. Engines with the new Fast Burn head/valvetrain design complement their enhanced high-rpm performance with the low-rpm torque for which the classic small-block is renowned—at least 300 lb-ft by only 1,500 rpm. On the street or at the track, it translates into an immediate feeling of power that's sustained across the entire rpm band. More information is available in the 2014 Chevrolet Performance Parts catalog, which can be downloaded for free at chevrolet.com.

Two versions are available, one for LS1-style cathedral port heads and one for LS3/L92-style heads, and are sold as either a single manifold or a fully assembled system.
