'97-'17 Corvette End Links from Hotchkis Sport Suspension

During performance driving sessions of the C5, C6 or C7 Corvette, Hotchkis Sport Suspension identified the need for a stronger and adjustable end link. The adjustability allows the sway bars to be corner balanced for improved handling on the course.

The new Corvette End Links feature a three-piece design based around a PTFE lined Heim joint for smooth articulation and quiet operation. The swaged stud allows for 50° of angle to extend the alignment and setup. Hotchkis supplies the Links with Grade-8 nylock nuts, jam nuts and stainless washers to provide even clamping loads at each mounting point.

The End Links measure 3.375” – 4.063” from center-to-center and will strengthen the connection of factory sway bars or with a set of Hotchkis’ beefy and durable Sport Sway Bars. The new End Links are available as a pair, PN 2585.

• Improved strength for performance driving
• Adjustability adds increased balance and handling
• Durable Aurora 3-piece heim joints

Aeromotive Fuels 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Dragster

Lenexa, KS, (August 20, 2018)…In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Mustang Cobra Jet, Ford Performance unveiled their new limited production, drag racing special Cobra Jet at the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit this week. Ford described it as the fastest production Mustang on the drag strip, capable of quarter mile times in the mid-eight-second range trapping at 150 mph. Fueling this hot new machine down the track is Aeromotive’s Pro Series Fuel pump.

While horsepower figures have not been released yet, prevailing thought is that it will be substantial considering it comes with a bored-out 5.2-liter version of Ford’s Coyote V-8 and a 3.0 liter Whipple supercharger. Additional features include a nine-inch solid rear axle, height-adjustable coilovers, an NHRA-certified roll cage and FI-certified racing seats. Only 68 of the commemorative Cobra Jets will be built with a choice of two color options: Race Red or Oxford White. The price is set at $130,000.

MAHLE Motorsport PowerPak Pistons and PowerPak Piston Kits For Ford Coyote and “Voodoo” V8 Crate Engines

MAHLE Motorsport now offers PowerPak Pistons and PowerPak Piston Kits for two of Ford’s more popular high-rev crate engines, the Ford Coyote all aluminum 5.0L crate engine and the 5.2 liter “Voodoo” V8.

PowerPak pistons are designed and manufactured with the same stringent standards as the track dominating Cobra Jet pistons MAHLE produces for Ford Racing; each being machined with the same attention to detail for performance, strength and durability, and backed by hours of R&D testing.

MAHLE PowerPak pistons feature hard anodized top ring grooves to eliminate micro-welding similar to MAHLE original equipment pistons. All PowerPak pistons are phosphate-coated to protect against galling in the pin bores prior to application of MAHLE’s proprietary Grafal® anti-fraction skirt coating.

MAHLE Motorsport Mazda MZR PowerPak and PowerPak Piston Kit

Designed specifically for the extreme load of today’s highly boosted direct injected engines, MAHLE Motorsport now offers a PowerPak and PowerPak piston kit for the Mazda MZR machined from MAHLE’s ultra-strong, lightweight, 2618 alloy slipper skirt forgings. Utilizing advanced machining capabilities from MAHLE manufactured equipment, the pistons are machined with advanced crown and profile designs to ensure peak performance and durability. The pistons are then triple-coated beginning with a phosphate dry film lubricant to protect the pin bores from galling, followed by an application of MAHLE’s proprietary anti-friction Grafal® coating applied to the skirts. Due to the higher cylinder temperatures and pressures associated with boosted, direct injected applications, the top ring grooves are also hard anodized to protect against micro welding.

Aeromotive Phantom Returnless EFI Fuel Pump

The Aeromotive Phantom Returnless EFI fuel pump and baffle system has a built in by-pass valve set for 58-PSI of line pressure, eliminating the need for an external regulator and return line from the engine. The all-in-one Phantom fuel system adapts to any fuel tank from 6- 11” in depth and includes the patented Phantom foam and bladder baffle to maintain fuel flow and pressure even when the tank is low on fuel.

“Designed to be quieter, more efficient and affordable, this system is ideal for EFI conversions and motor swaps for early model muscle cars and street rods,” states Steve Matusek, president of Aeromotive.
