With the birth of the LS7 engine, FAST engineers developed a revolutionary manifold that is capable of producing big gains for the powerplant-the LSXR 102mm Intake Manifold. However, the new FAST LS7 manifold requires the use of one of two FAST custom fuel rail kits designed specifically for it-either an OEM-type or an upgraded billet aluminum kit. With high-strength, lightweight, red anodized aluminum construction, the FAST LSXR 102mm Intake Manifold Billet Aluminum Fuel Rail Kit delivers performance in addition to a show-car quality appearance. The OEM-type fuel rail kit ships with all necessary components and will provide the proper function for use in factory vehicles, as it enables easy connection to existing fuel lines. For more information about the FAST LSXR 102mm Intake Manifold Fuel Rail Kits for GM LS engines call 877-334-8355, or go to www.fuelairspark.com.
Cool Hood-Cool Engine
Anvil Auto has just released a new carbon-fiber hood for the fifth-gen Camaro. Designed to emulate the air outlets found on the Aston Martin DBS, hot air and built-up pressure from high speeds are deftly evacuated from the engine bay, thus cooling the engine and presenting less front-end lift. The two openings are lined up with the front scoop found on SS models for an integrated, yet functional, appearance. Available in carbon/fiberglass as well as full-carbon versions and choice of gloss or satin finishes. For more information, call Anvil Auto at 888-723-8882 or visit them on the Internet at www.anvilauto.com.

LS Conversion Oil Pan
Swapping an LS engine into your favorite hot rod or muscle car just got much easier thanks to the new revolutionary LS conversion oil pan from Mast Motorsports. Like the OEM LS oil pan, Mast's LS conversion oil pan is manufactured from rugged cast aluminum, and a thick pan rail maintains the oil pan as a stressed member. The short front pan depth and optimum sump depth balances oil capacity while fitting virtually any chassis. The factory pan gasket and oil filter are utilized for a perfect seal and ease of service. Pro Touring and racing fans will love the fact the Mast LS conversion oil pan is cored and baffled for excellent oil control. And "cast-in" clearance fits aftermarket or Mast short-stroker windage trays. Innovative oiling circuitry with -10AN fittings eliminates need for expensive adapters for remote oil coolers and oil filter. For more information, call 888-417-8334 or visit Mast Motorsports at www.mastcamaro.com.

Let It Bleed
Installing a master cylinder is generally an easy mechanical accomplishment with the most difficult part being bench bleeding the unit. Without the correct parts to do the job properly, bench bleeding can be a messy and wasteful chore. In order to make the job much easier, all non-remote Wilwood tandem master cylinders (one pushrod, two outlets) are now delivered with a bench bleeder kit. The kit comes with several nylon brake fittings that can be screwed into the master cylinder ports. The fittings have a connection for a section of plastic hose that can be directed back into the master cylinder when the bleeding process is being done. By directing the brake fluid back into the master cylinder where it belongs, the mess and waste is no longer a problem. This bleeder system can be used and adapted to many other master cylinders so the kit, PN 260-11593, can also be purchased separately. For more information about Wilwood master cylinders or the bleeder kit, call Wilwood Engineering direct at 805-388-1188, or visit their website at www.wilwood.com.
Thank You For Smoking ... Your Tires
With the new TCI Universal Illuminated Burnout Kit you can add extra flash and show off the power of your engine like never before by lighting up your tire smoke during burnouts. This new kit comes with the popular TCI RollStop, which allows simple engagement of the brakes for easy burnouts while high-powered, pulsing blue LED lights illuminate your tire smoke. The Universal Illuminated Burnout Kit can be installed with virtually any brake system-car or truck, classic or late model. Both durable and waterproof, it is manufactured from high-strength 6061-T6 aluminum to resist damage. The included RollStop has a precision solenoid valve that can withstand 3,000 psi of pressure and draws only one amp of current, and it can hold your brakes indefinitely without overheating, which means longer burnouts and bigger smoke clouds.

In 2011 the MSD 6A and 6AL will be all new! New digital control. New power. New rotary dial rev limiter. Same great MSD style. The ignitions have been redesigned from the ground up with the performance enthusiast in mind. The engineers put all digital controls inside so that the box delivers more power while drawing less current from the vehicle's electrical system. Then they added a sealing, locking connector that all of the wires are routed through to add to the clean look and make installations even easier. Finally, for the 6AL the rev limiter was turned into two rotary dials and moved to the face of the ignition for easy adjustment in 100rpm increments. Visit www.msdignition.com for more information.
