2015 SEMA Trick Truck Parts
Filling a handful of exposition halls with miles and miles of aisles full of the latest and greatest go-fast and look good components, it’s hard to make a list of the coolest parts of the SEMA Show. Instead, we compiled a few of what we thought were the neatest, most groundbreaking new products of the show. Take a look and stay tuned for full tech stories on a number of these components.
Holley’s Hi-Ram Intake Manifold for LT1 Engines
Holley’s proven Hi-Ram intake design is a well-known performer in the LS world, so to say there was a bit of excitement about the new LT version of the same manifold would be to put it lightly. Capable of adding even more fuel to the engine via port injection above and beyond what the direct injection system is capable of, means the potential of these engines is well over 1,000 horsepower.
Wilwood’s Aluminum Dropped Spindle for C10 Trucks
Wilwood unveiled a brand new forged aluminum spindle for Chevy C10 pickups, based on similar components found on modern muscle cars. Designed with a 2 ½-inch drop, these are the perfect foundation for that brake upgrade on any C10 frontend.
Eddie Motorsports’ Handsome Handles
Looking to swap out those rusty, corroded door handles? Look no further than Eddie Motorsports’ expansive new line of custom billet interior and exterior door handles. Available in a variety of finished, with a myriad of modifications, these will put the finishing touch on that custom truck.
Earl’s Affordable EFI Plumbing Options
Fuel vapors escaping from cheap hose can make a garage a miserable place to be. Don’t let your truck weep fuel vapors but upgrading your rubber hose to Earl’s new Vapor Guard hose.

Custom C10 Sounds by RetroSound
C10 trucks are huge right now, so it’s no surprise that RetroSound pulled out all the stops on their latest design, a Long Beach BC Radio for ’67-72 C/K Chevy pickups. A modern stereo, complete with built-in SiriusXM compatibility, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, wireless audio streaming, and USB ports, will look the part in any truck, be it a restomod or full custom.
EFI Conversions Made EZ With Holley’s In-Tank Fuel Module
Making EFI conversions even easier is the job handled by Holley’s new universal in-tank fuel module. Convert that factory fuel tank to an in-tank, returnless EFI fuel system quickly and easily, while adding the benefits of Holley’s Hydramat system in the process.
Con2r’s Classic Clusters
Con2r has been developing some amazing gauge designs recently and their latest for ’47-53 Chevy trucks is no exception. Part of their Superstock line, this pair consists of a 0-120mph speedo, fuel level, and temp gauge in one cluster and an 8,000rpm tach, voltmeter, and oil pressure gauge in the other.
Chevy’s LT1 Offered in a Connect & Cruise
One of Chevrolet Performance’s latest crate offering from its Connect & Cruise line is the 6.2L LT1. Representing the 5th generation of the iconic Chevy small block design, the new LT1 is a technologically advanced V8 featuring direct fuel injection combined with a bulletproof 6-speed Tremec T56 transmission.
Affordable EFI Thanks To FiTech
An EFI system for under $1,000 is almost unheard of, but that’s exactly what FiTech promises. Good for applications up to 600 horsepower, their four-injector throttle body fits any 4-bbl intake manifold and contains the ECU, simplifying installation.
Hinges For the “Other” ‘50s Chevy Trucks
After the Tri-Five Chevy trucks, the ’58-59 models don’t seem to get as much love. Things are changin’ however, starting with their addition to the popular Eddie Motorsports billet hinge line. Available in polished, satin, and black finishes, these aluminum beauties are sure to be a hit given the failure rate of the stock version.
