No matter where you're driving this season, you can bet it will be hot. Nothing kills power and breaks down parts more than heat. Fortunately, an inexpensive and convenient way to combat engine heat is to use a radiator coolant additive like Purple Ice, Royal Purple's specially formulated high-performance synthetic coolant additive. Purple Ice is convenient to use. Simply add the product to the coolant reservoir. Purple Ice was engineered to reduce the surface tension of the coolant, which improves heat transfer throughout the cooling system. It has also been shown in independent tests to reduce engine temperature in street cars and trucks as much as 30 degrees or more. Purple Ice also protects against corrosion and the formation of scale deposits in the radiator, and lubricates water pump seals. For more information on Royal Purple visit www.royalpurple.com or call 281.354.8600.

Edelbrock announced the delivery of the E-Force supercharger system for '10 Camaro SS manual transmission cars. This system dramatically improves the horsepower of the stock LS3 engine, from 426-599 hp (as measured at the engine flywheel), while reducing parasitic loss through the use of an integrated bypass valve. It utilizes the same Eaton Twin Vortices Series (TVS) Gen VI rotors as found in the ZR-1 Corvette. Torque is maximized by the integration of 12-inch-long intake runners in a nested configuration that allows the entire assembly to fit beneath the stock hood. The E-Force supercharger system (PN 1598) includes all the parts needed for a 50-state legal installation (EO pending), including a hand-held programming module for updating the ECU, larger injectors, and a high-flow reusable air filter. Retail price is $6,595.87. For more information, visit www.edelbrock.com or call 888.409.1552.
Keep Your Ride Looking Rad
Has keeping your bare-steel projects from rusting become a full-time job? Have you tried multiple remedies only to wind up with an oily mess or expensive issues when it comes time to paint? After years of suffering the same problems, Troy Trepanier and the crew at Rad Rides have come up with the solution: Rad Rides Metal Protectant. "Not only is this the best-performing, non-oil-based corrosion inhibitor we have ever used, it is completely body shop friendly," Trepanier says. Simply spray it directly on the metal or on a cloth to seal your surface against corrosion. It will also prevent oxidation on any raw metal and seal it with no change in appearance. This product is a true mega penetrant, ultra lubricant, corrosion inhibitor, and water repellant all in one. Order a can online at www.radrides.com or call Rad Rides at 815.468.2590.
