Cut It Out
The original Doug's Headers announced a new-and-improved version of their popular all-stainless steel construction electric exhaust cutouts in 2 1/2- and 3-inch diameters. The engineers at Doug's have taken their famous electric exhaust cutouts and dramatically decreased the size, for more versatile installations, while lowering the price. These cutouts feature a rugged gear reduction, 12-volt DC motor and a rotating gate for a leak-proof seal every time they are opened and closed. Unlike butterfly style cutouts, the Doug's cutouts don't have the leaky gasket sound and, when fully opened, there are no exhaust flow obstructions. A pre-wired harness with an illuminated rocker switch is supplied for easy installation. Uncork your exhaust with the flip of a switch from you dash. The cutouts are ideal for racetracks that don't require mufflers. They are available in singles or pairs and in complete kits with Y-pipes for easy installation. Call Doug's Headers direct at 909.599.5955 for more information or to locate a local dealer near you.

First-Gen Sidewinder
Ever wondered why your car feels faster on a cold morning than it does on a hot afternoon? The answer is air temperature. Cooler, denser air packs more oxygen into the combustion chamber. On a typical summer day, the air temperature in your Camaro's engine bay can spike well over 200 degrees, and your fan shroud funnels hot air straight to the carburetor. The new Spectre ProFab Sidewinder intake for first-generation GM F-bodies pulls cool ambient air from around the radiator and channels it straight to the carburetor through dual mandrel-bent intake tubes. Dyno testing on a typical 350hp '68 Camaro showed a 40-degree inlet air temperature drop. The result: over 20 hp and 25 lb-ft of torque. Real world driving with constant fresh air circulation would produce even greater power gains. For more information on the Sidewinder or other intake systems from Spectre Performance, go to or call them at 909.673.9800.

Spring Fever
Since the beginning of the GM LS1 engine, aftermarket performance has consistently improved for this impressive powerplant. And with the ever-increasing aggressiveness of LS1 cam profiles being used by builders today, engineers at COMP Cams decided to design a valvespring that could both reduce stress and increase valvetrain stability in these applications. After intensive R&D, rigorous Spintron and dyno testing and exclusive development processes, the No. 26925 Street/Strip Dual Valvespring came to life. This 'spring is engineered for street/strip hydraulic roller and some solid roller LS1 camshafts and features a 1.320-inch outside diameter and a 0.660-inch maximum lift. This lightweight, high-lift dual 'spring is also polish-finished to actually help with the reduction of stress in the valvetrain. Although engineered with GM LS1 engines in mind, these 'springs can also be used with many other popular engine applications. For more information about the COMP Cams No. 26925 Street/Strip Dual Valvespring or any other COMP Cams product, visit them online at or call 800.999.0853.
