Keeping Pace

Pace combined the eight-stack fuel-injection system and mounted it to a Chevrolet Performance ZZ383 and then added a FAST EZ-EFI ECU and harness. The dyno results where 430 hp at 5,200 rpm and 475 ft-lb of torque at 4,300 rpm. More surprising was the tight air/fuel ratio reading, which stayed between 13.3 and 13.6 throughout multiple pulls on the dyno. During pull number 2, the FAST system started learning and making self-adjustments that further enhanced the engine’s performance. Pace plumbs the injection system with the new TechAFX premium fuel-injection hose and fittings. Each ZZ383 engine is dyno tested to ensure proper engine break-in and trouble-free installation.

The motor comes with a General Motors limited two-year/50,000-mile parts and labor warranty. Order PN GMP-12498772-8STK ZZ383 engine with eight-stack EFI ($11,249.95)

Combo Play

Wilwood’s combination proportioning valve simplifies mounting, plumbing, wiring, and brake proportioning adjustments. The combination block maintains full isolation between front and rear fluid circuits and can be used in conjunction with any tandem outlet or dual-mount master cylinder assemblies. The rear circuit has a single inlet and single outlet with the adjustable proportioning valve. The front circuit has a single inlet with two outlets. The combination proportioning valve (PN 260-11179) can be run as a single outlet with one outlet plugged, or used to split the plumbing on its way to the front calipers. The brake light switch is immediately activated by pressure in the front circuit. The sturdy forged body incorporates two 5/16-inch through holes for secure mounting to the frame or a reinforced chassis brace.

Stop and Drop

Fatman Fabrications has introduced spindles that will handle better brakes and a 2-1/2-inch drop while retaining their stock GM front suspension.

A special outer tie-rod end arrangement is included so that bumpsteer is prevented. GM 12-inch-diameter disc brake rotors are used with either a 5- or 4.75-inch bolt pattern make it easy to match stock GM rear axle bolt patterns.
