FAST billet fuel rails feature larger internal diameters to dampen pulses and provide increased fuel volume, so the fuel injectors never run dry. The machine-built rails and fittings feature superior strength and precise specifications to prevent leaks, cracks, and improper fitment. High-volume, steel-braided fuel lines ensure longevity and the high level of durability required for demanding high-performance applications. These Fuel Line and Connection Kits fit '98-02 F-bodies only; crossover lines fit all FAST LSX and LSXR Intake Manifolds.

Precision Ported
Engineers at RHS have recently designed the only small-block Chevy 23-degree, cast-iron head for 360-434ci engines that is CNC-ported from the factory. The precision accuracy and durability of the RHS Pro Elite SBC 23-Degree CNC-ported iron cylinder heads are derived not only from the CNC-porting of the intake and exhaust runners, but the CNC-ported combustion chamber as well. The CNC-ported 240cc intake and 85cc exhaust runners optimize airflow volume and velocity while the 53cc combustion chambers are also CNC-machined to relieve the valve shrouding that occurs when the edge of a valve is in close proximity to the combustion chamber wall. Overall, the full CNC-porting process provides more consistent runners and smoother port-to-chamber transitions, thereby increasing both airflow efficiency and horsepower.

For racing classes that mandate the use of cast-iron cylinder heads, RHS has designed the ultimate advantage by utilizing the latest in airflow technology.

Cooler Air = Instant Horsepower
With all other factors remaining equal, the easiest way to add horsepower to a carburetor-equipped muscle car is to lower the temperature of air entering the engine. Spectre's newest breakthrough is the DTM intake system. By pulling air from outside the engine bay, Spectre saw impressive gains of 20 hp and 23 lb-ft of torque peak on a standard 350ci crate motor-equipped test car. That equated to an impressive 6.71 percent increase-all from swapping to a DTM intake!

The DTM is also one of the lowest air intake systems on the market, making it a perfect benefit for hot rodders with tall-deck engines and high-rise manifolds that want to avoid swapping to a new hood for clearance. The Spectre DTM intake system is currently available for '67-81 F-bodies, '64-72 Chevelles, and '66-74 Novas. All necessary brackets, adapters, hardware, and complete step-by-step instructions to make installation easy are included. Click on over to or call 800.821.4868 for more information.

Trick Shift
Trick Shift was originally developed by B&M for racing applications, but has also become a popular high-performance fluid for street applications. Formulated as a performance automatic transmission fluid, synthetic Trick Shift features the latest synthetic fluid technology suitable for most late-model automatic transmissions as well as many manual transmissions. Not an additive, this safe and effective formula of extreme pressure agents, foam inhibitors, and exceptional thermal stability will provide a long service life for your transmission. Applications include street, racing, off-road, towing, and heavy-duty fleet use.

B&M Trick Shift meets or exceeds Mercon or Dexron III requirements and may be mixed with all other types of ATF but works best by itself.

Attention In The Tower!
Minimize strut tower deflection in your fifth-gen Camaro with a 4-Point Strut Tower Brace from BMR Fabrication. Constructed from large-diameter 1.75x0.120-inch tubing, this product maintains frontend stability by canceling tower deflection. The BMR 4-Point Strut Tower Brace (STB014) mounts directly to the top of the strut towers at the highest leverage point for the greatest amount of stability. Additionally, two forward links tie the towers to the fender/core support area to further reinforce the frontend. Billet aluminum strut retainers replace the OE stamped-steel parts for an improved look as well. Installation time is only three hours and is available in black hammertone or red powdercoat.
