Be Cool has expanded its industry-proven product line with its new Be Cool OE Series radiator that combines a modern aluminum core design with a factory-appearing finish, and correct-appearing, ribbed factory tank design of a stock OEM copper/brass/lead unit. Now 1955-57 Chevrolets, 1968-72 GM A-bodies, 1967-69 Camaros or 1955-72 Corvettes can still look original, but they wont overheat with a new Be Cool OE Series radiator. Not only will your new radiator look stock, it won’t leak, either. More than a dozen models cover most GM stick and automatic applications. These new Be Cool OE Series aluminum radiators feature an OE black finish and come with a new factory OE replacement radiator cap where applicable. Automatic transmission versions feature transmission cooling line fittings in the original thread size and location.

Cobra Automotive now offers an exact duplicate of the original 289/271-hp factory hi-po harmonic balancer. This new balancer is made from the original Ford blueprints and is identical in every way (other than the original Ford logo and part number), with the original timing scale perfectly engraved along the outer surface. The new balancer has a totally correct appearance. This is a fully balanced replacement piece that eliminates the use of old hi-po balancers that allow the timing marks to continuously move because of the dried-up inner rubber liner. It will bolt onto any 289 hi-po engine from 1963-67 or any 289 engine to give it the same appearance as a 289 hi-po. It comes nicely packaged with the correct original part number, #C6OE-6316-A, on the outside of the box. The price is $295.

For those who wish to add a turbo or any power adder to their new 5L ‘11 V-8 Ford Mustang Coyote, forged pistons will be necessary, so Diamond is announcing a new series of low-silicon 2618 forgings, comprising a variety of compression ratios from 8.5:1 to 11.5:1 as well as in four different bore sizes. The piston illustrated (P/N 30113) has a 6cc dish, and when used in conjunction with the production 57cc Coyote cylinder head, contributes a compression ratio of 9.5:1, which is ideal for running pump fuel. It will also accommodate a small turbo producing 8-10 psi of boost. To protect the top ring from the increased heat generated by power upgrades it is positioned .300-inch down from the crown. Diamond also upgraded the piston pins, selecting 4130 chrome molybdenum material. Double spiral locks secure the pins, and Diamond offers three optional barrier coatings for these pistons: hard anodizing, Teflon skirt coating and a ceramic thermal barrier crown coating. The anodizing, a Type 3 hard coat, protects against excessive combustion heat and detonation damage. It also increases corrosion and wear resistance and creates a hard surface finish approaching 70 Rockwell. It contributes an excellent adhesive surface for the Teflon skirt coating—a moly-based dry-film lubricant that reduces friction and scuffing.

Lower the front of your 4th Generation F-body 1-inch without affecting suspension travel with a set of lowering A-arms from BMR Fabrication. Based on their proven traditional A-arm design, these lowering A-arms are constructed from a combination of 1 5/8-inch and 1 1/4-inch DOM tubing and feature 3/16-inch laser-cut steel plates and CNC-machined ball joint cups. The BMR lowering A-arms (AA020) utilize a combination of low-deflection, internally fluted polyurethane bushings and Teflon-lined XR series spherical rod ends with stainless spacers. The result is a high quality tubular A-arm that not only reduces weight by 10 pounds, but lowers the vehicle without the typical geometry and alignment concerns.  Installation time is only two to three hours. It’s available in black hammer tone or red powder coat.

What you’re looking at is a front disc brake kit for purists, a new kit now available from O’Brien Truckers. These folks have come up with a way to combine Wilwood disc brake stopping power with a classic look we all love. It may be hard to believe this is a disc brake front end, but that’s what this is—really!  It uses a traditional-looking front backing plate that incorporates a very attractive (and fully functional) cooling scoop with what appears to be a Buick-style finned brake drum. But what’s going on behind this backing plate is a whole other story. On the other side is Wilwood’s Dynalite Pro Series hub kit with front-mounted, billet four-piston calipers, pads, vented rotors and a set of custom caliper brackets.  The kit comes complete, for $1,595 unpolished or $1,795 polished.

Featuring next generation high power SMD LEDs, these bulbs work great in most stock taillight and turn signal housings. With 36 LEDs mounted radially, along with nine forward-firing LEDs, these bulbs emit light brighter than a standard incandescent bulb and fill out the entire housing without any focused hotspots. Longer lifetimes up to 30,000 hours, faster on/off response time, and resistance to vibration make them a perfect alternative for standard filament bulbs. The 1156/1157-x45-T comes in red, amber and white and are available along with a large selection of other automotive LED bulbs and LED accent lighting solutions.

The new Ford 5.0L engine in the ‘11 Mustang is an amazing performance package. Now with the addition of the new Roush exhaust for this engine, it can also have the growl and menacing throaty bark that an American V-8 muscle car needs. Drivers will experience an aggressive sound under acceleration, yet refined under steady state or cruising conditions, without the dreaded drone inside the cabin. The Roush 2011 exhaust kit uses 409 stainless steel in the construction of the pipes and muffler and has an open-chambered design that will not deteriorate over time. There are two versions available, the difference being the shape of the tail pipe. The round tips fit the Ford or Roush Mustang rear valence (P/N 421127, suggested retail $399); the Roush square tip design gives the car a totally different look, but requires the use of the Roush rear valence. The suggested retail on the square tip kit is $440 (P/N 421126; requires part 420009, $175).

Brute Industries, Inc., manufacturer of Race Ramps, announce the release of Hook Nosed Rack Ramps as a lightweight alternative to the heavy steel ramps typically used with four-post lifts. Weighing as little as 9 pounds each–less than one-quarter the weight of factory steel ramps–Hook Nosed Rack Ramps are easy to move and store. They provide a 6.7-degree angle of approach, enabling vehicles with low ground clearance to get on the lift without scraping the front end. Hooked Nosed Rack Ramps come in three sizes, which can accommodate tires up to 16 inches wide on the bigger model. They are designed as a direct replacement for the heavy factory steel ramps used on a variety of popular four-post lifts. Their patented, super-lightweight, 100 percent solid construction ensures that the ramps are highly durable, virtually indestructible and very stable–with the ability to support a 6,000-pound vehicle. The ramps’ textured coating prevents sliding across floors, including epoxy-coated floors, yet they will not scratch or otherwise damage the floor. They are easy to clean and won’t rust.

Viair is proud to introduce the world’s first automatic portable compressors, the VIAIR 400P-Automatic (2.54 cfm, 33 percent duty cycle), 450P-Automatic (1.66 cfm, 100 percent duty cycle) and 400P-RV Automatic (2.54 cfm, 33 percent duty cycle) with extended reach and inflation abilities. VIAIR automatic portable compressors offer automatic shut-off that simplify tire filling in a revolutionary way. Rather than rushing from the tire back to the compressor to shut it off, you can let the compressor run. The automatic function of these compressors turns the units on and off for you, while you move from tire to tire. This is especially useful for applications where compressor speed and long run time is desirable. All units are capable of 150-psi maximum working pressure and come with their own gas station-style tire inflation gun with high performance air pressure gauge onboard. Additionally, these heavy-duty compressors come with heavy-duty battery connection cables, an inflation tips kit, heavy-duty sand tray with rubber over-mold and a heavy-duty carrying bag for added portability.
