Weld Racing’s latest addition is the RT-S line of forged wheels; the S71, which is a traditional “Weld-Star” design, and the S74, a sophisticated multi-spoke design. Wheel sizes range from 15x3.5 up to 20x17.5 (S74 available in 18- and 20-inch only.) These are forged from primary aluminum alloys in the United States; they are lighter, stronger, and polish to a brilliant shine, resisting oxidation better than other alloys. These are the perfect wheels for today’s powerful hot rods and street machines.

Universal Exhaust Cut Out
The Raceland Exhaust Cut Out will allow vehicle owners the ability to control their exhaust system with the simple click of a button. When installed, the exhaust bypass system allows vehicle owners to reroute their exhaust flow to avoid power-restricting mufflers or resonators to enhance performance as well as the sound of their vehicle. The supplied wireless remote activates an electric flapper valve in the bypass system. With the flapper closed, the exhaust gases flow normal, as the factory intended. When the remote is used to open the flapper the exhaust gases are then allowed to either bypass the exhaust restriction or immediately exit the vehicle. The Exhaust Cut Out is constructed of stainless steel with heat-wrapped electrics to ensure many years of performance to come. These are currently offered in 21/2- or 3-inch diameters and will work on any automobile, SUV, or truck.

Pro Elite 23-Degree CNC-Ported Aluminum Heads
These revolutionary cylinder heads are designed using the RHS exclusive Clean Cast Technology to deliver superior port-to-chamber transitions for greater airflow. The CNC-ported 228cc intake and 82cc exhaust runners optimize volume, atomization, and velocity, while the 69cc combustion chambers are CNC-ported to relieve valve shrouding that occurs in “as-cast” chambers when the edge of a valve is in close proximity to the combustion chamber wall. CNC-machining the combustion chamber also improves the airflow efficiency of the cylinder heads. The 2.055-/1.600-inch intake/exhaust valve seats allow for superior airflow, thereby significantly increasing horsepower. In addition, these 23-degree SBC heads feature a refined water jacket for better water flow that reduces engine hot spots while an extra-thick deck allows angle milling and improves head gasket retention in boost and nitrous applications.
