High-Horse Fuel Pump
Aeromotive, a marketer of premium-quality fuel delivery systems and components, introduces the company’s first series of brushless fuel pumps. Designed specifically for extremely high-horsepower vehicles, the new brushless series of pumps offer improved performance and efficiency, especially for ethanol-fueled, street/strip applications. Through years of research and development, Aeromotive created four new brushless pumps: the Brushless A1000, the Brushless Eliminator and the 3.5-gpm and the 5.0-gpm Gear Pumps. The company’s new brushless technology creates less heat, draws less power and eliminates the potential for wear—ideal for dual purpose applications requiring a continuous duty fuel pump and are engineered to last a lifetime.

004 Product Preview Detroit Speed Independent Rear Suspension 4/4

C2/C3 IRS Rear
The Detroit Speed engineering team leveraged the company’s ’72 Corvette test car as a proving ground for the entire suspension system, identifying the weaknesses in the original manufacturer parts and set up to improve the handling, ride quality and overall strength of the car. The C2/C3 Corvette DECAlink rear suspension kit allows Corvette owners the flexibility to use the original 17-spline differential assembly or upgrade to a 30-spline or a Hammerhead 12-bolt differential. The system features a two-piece cast-aluminum/steel cradle assembly, which makes for changing differentials much easier. Detroit Speed predicts C2/C3 Corvette owners can expect ease of installation with the new DECAlink rear suspension kit.
