The Kool Factor
Summit Racing Equipment has introduced its own brand of -AN hose ends and adapters with a black hard-anodized finish.
Swivel-style fittings are made from aerospace-quality aluminum. The reusable hose ends have a swivel end that can be rotated to make connections easier to create. The fittings are designed for use with most fuels, including alcohol and nitro methane, and are compatible with most brands of -AN type braided and smooth hose.
Twist-Tite Fittings are lighter and easier to use than traditional -AN fittings. The aluminum fittings have a socketless barb end—just slip Summit Racing’s Twist-Tite hose over the end and the connection is complete.
Fitting styles: Straight, 90 degree, 45 degree; sizes: -4 AN, -6 AN, -8 AN, -10 AN, -12 AN, and -16 AN.
Wall of Steel
The Smoothie firewall for ’57 Chevys is a brand-new custom firewall. An exact steel reproduction of the original with the exception of the small holes inboard of the hood hinge area are eliminated, plus no heater box or valve hole, no wiper hole, accelerator hole, steering box hole, master cylinder hole, or clutch rod hole.
The firewall maintains its basic original shape so A/C and aftermarket wiper system is easily installed. Cut holes as you need them, where you need them. Fits all ’57 passenger cars and wagons (PN SFW-57, $474.99).
Real Deal Steel
The Legend Returns
Classic Instruments now offers a line of Holman Moody gauges. With assistance and help from George Poteet, the line of gauges is available directly through Holman Moody.
A calibrated controller kit (PN 19256514, $1,312.50) from Chevrolet Performance enables the quicker and easier adaptation of GM’s 5.3L V-8 for hot rod projects, and works with ’07-09 versions of the engine.
The kit includes: two oxygen sensors, two oxygen sensor mounting bosses (for installation in the exhaust system), mass airflow meter, mass airflow meter mounting boss (for installation in the air intake system), throttle pedal assembly (for use with the electronically operated throttle), specific oil pressure sensor that is compatible with the harness, complete wiring harness with fuse box and necessary cam sensor and MAP sensor jumpers, programmed controller, instruction sheet, and 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.
All that’s needed to get a vehicle running with it are power and ground sources, a 58-psi (400 kPa) fuel pump, and an electric cooling fan.
