Other than removing the cylinder and weighing it, there has never been an easy way to monitor how full a nitrous bottle is. ZEX has remedied that problem by developing the industry's first nitrous level gauge. This gauge displays how much nitrous is left in the bottle with both an illuminated LED indicator and a numerical fill percentage readout. It also accurately measures how much nitrous is being used. The ZEX Nitrous Level Gauge is compatible with any manufacturer's nitrous system and installs with an easy five-wire hookup. The gauge can monitor any commonly available nitrous cylinder from 1-30 pounds and can monitor nitrous systems jetted up to 500 horsepower. It also features built-in automatic dimming for night use and is easily reset when refilling the nitrous bottle. For more information go to zex.com or call 888.817.1008.
Patterned for Performance
To make the most power from your engine you need to optimize the air ingested and captured by avoiding valves closing too soon or too late. Any conventional center layout single throttle body or carbureted V-8 intake manifold features longer outboard runners and shorter inboard runners, meaning that each valve event should occur at a different moment. COMP Cams' 4-Pattern Camshafts are the very first series of cams designed to accommodate this difference in length and avoid valves closing at the wrong times. Available for big- and small-block Chevy and small-block Ford carbureted or fuel injected applications, the cam design is exclusive and unique to COMP, and each one comes with a full Adcole report. The introduction of COMP Cams' 4-Pattern Camshafts means that proven race car technology is now available for your street machine.

Third-gen Upper Console Assembly
If you're the owner of a third-gen Camaro you've no doubt had to replace at least one piece of cracked, faded, or rotted plastic.

Camaro Central comes to the rescue with the introduction of their all-new Camaro Upper Console Assembly and Radio Face Plate for '82- 92 Camaros.

But, if your car has the power window, hatch, or convertible top accessories, or you need a good place for a fuel pump or nitrous switch, the Camaro Central console has etched cutout markings on the underside for easy installation of the switches. Suggested retail price is $199.95. For more info go to camarocentral.com or call 800.990.1969.
