Compact LS Drive System
Holley is pleased to announce the release of their Complete Mid-Mount Accessory Drive Systems for GM LS engines. These drive systems pull all your accessories in tighter than ordinary accessory drives for a clean, compact look. At the heart of it is the revolutionary “bracketless” design (patent pending), where all accessories attach directly off the water pump. The system will work on all standard wet-sump, non-factory supercharged GM LS engines. It contains everything you need in a single system for a fast, easy installation.

GC Cooling’s Smart Fan will automatically turn on at 150 degrees at 50 percent speed, increasing to 100 percent at 200 degrees, reducing both fan noise and current draw. It additionally starts the airflow process sooner to keep engine bay temperatures lower. Most importantly, GC Cooling’s Smart Fan features no additional boxes to mount and installation is simple with no programming required. For more information visit gccooling.com or call 515.645.5908.
