Now Wilson Manifolds has added a full range of elbows to its lineup covering everything from 90-105mm throttle bodies.

Now Wilson Manifolds is offering a fully CNC-machined billet elbow that arcs from a 4500-series Dominator-style flange on one end to a 105mm throttle body opening on the other. The elbow incorporates a computer-optimized transition from the throttle body to the intake manifold plenum for maximum power and optimum airflow distribution.

Based on RetroTek’s unique, award-winning technology, the Smart Shift system consists of three major components: the backlit billet keypad, a cutting-edge main controller, and the compact actuator.

Finally, the custom actuator was designed by RetroTek to work with over 20 domestic transmissions. The actuator is extremely durable, and shifts are perfectly timed and in-synch with the trans. All mounting hardware is included, and a simple pan-rail design allows for two-bolt installation. The compact Smart Shift system is also compatible with the heavy-duty gear boxes and transfer cases found in off-road racing and rock-crawling, and Smart Shifts have been installed in several pre-runner and trophy endurance race trucks.

BMR Fabrication  is proud to announce its new V6 S197 Strut Tower Brace, an easy and inexpensive way to fortify V6 Mustang handling.

The BMR V6 Strut Tower Brace solidly connects the front strut towers for improved handling and steering response, minimizing strut tower deflection and firmly planting the tires for maximum grip. BMR builds all of its strut tower braces out of heavy-duty 1.250-inch diameter DOM tubing welded to 3/16-inch thick laser cut mounting plates, and all BMR suspension parts are MADE IN THE USA. They feature smooth mandrel bends and a rear offset that provides excellent hood clearance and allows easy access to most engine accessories.

Developed primarily for intense sun environments and long-term storage, WeatherShield® HD features an immersion encapsulation process which places a UV, moisture and dust-proof barrier inside the material fibers, resulting in a superior all-around protective fabric. Its full warranty insures maximum protection for five years under normal usage.

WeatherShield®HD protects against dust, tree sap, bird droppings and acid rain, plus it “breathes” allowing trapped moisture to escape. Corrosion and abrasion free nylon zippers provide easy access to the door and resist binding in all weather conditions.
