It’s a Gas
’62-67 Nova Straight-Axle Frontend
Straight-axle cars have traditionally been a handful to drive on the ’strip, and even worse on the street. After months of engineering and consultation with some of the finest minds in the business, this first-gen Nova straight-axle kit will allow you to drive down the interstate comfortably. It has a front-steer design that allows for not only perfect drag link alignment to yield near zero bumpsteer, but plenty of room for even big-blocks. Almost any oil pan will fit, and there is plenty of room for the biggest headers. The front framehorns and crossmembers are a perfect fit for your stock radiator support, and with eight threaded inserts installed, it will bolt right up and make it easy to install your fenders, grille, and headlight buckets. These front frameclips are the finest quality available, jig built and fully TIG welded with the closest tolerances in the industry. This kit comes complete with all the top quality components you’ll need to build your gasser, right down to the 12-point Grade 8 bolts to attach it to your Nova.

Built for Power
Ram 12-inch Clutch Sets
Ram announced heavy-duty clutch sets (pressure plate and clutch plate) for upgraded GM LS-powered vehicles, including the Camaro through 2011, with the following increases in torque capacity. Measuring 12 inches in diameter yet operating within the confines of the conventional flat-style OEM 168-tooth flywheel, Ram’s HD set transmits torque capacity of up to 550 lb-ft, their Powergrip 650 lb-ft, and the Powergrip HD 750 lb-ft. The friction linings featured on these single-plate clutch sets are either organic or metallic or a combination of both. A familiar trail blazed by Ram, they use organic materials on their HD style to provide smooth engagement and a metallic construction on their high-end Powergrip HD series. Their metallic 900 series contributes a higher coefficient of friction with formidable holding power. On their intermediate clutch set, the Powergrip, they use both materials—placing the organic side toward the flywheel and the metallic side toward the pressure plate. Ram’s 12-inch clutch sets are engineered to fit directly to the 111/2-inch OEM clutches with flat flywheels. However, on ’05-current applications where recessed flywheels are standard fitment, Ram provides a replacement flat flywheel from billets of aluminum or steel.

The new Camaro System is a complete drop-in, single fuel pump assembly for ’10-and-later Camaros. The system provides a single A1000 or Eliminator Fuel Pump capable of supporting big horsepower. The best part: It drops right into your factory tank. It still incorporates the factory jet siphon system, includes an integral 100-micron pre-pump filter and an ORB-08 return line port. Now you can plumb a true return-style system into your Camaro to support the power you’re making without the worry of the siphon system and while maintaining your factory fuel tank, all while saving you money!
