High-Flow HeadsAir Flow Research introduces its new LS1 aluminum cylinder head designed specifically for late-model Chevy Corvettes, Camaros, and trucks. The LS1 head features 2.020/1.600 valves that flow 300-plus cfm at 0.600 inches of lift while retaining the stock 205cc port volume; that's a 70-cfm increase. It is available in two CNC-ported runner sizes: 205 cc and 225 cc, with 66cc and 76cc combustion chamber volumes available in both versions. AFR's LS1 head is a direct bolt-on replacement head, so no special parts are required. Structural features such as Air Flow Research's trademark 3/4-inch-thick head deck, reinforced rocker stud bosses, and thick-walled runners provide durability.

Notch that PipeThe Tubing and Pipe Notching Tool from Proform is great for fish-mouthing hard-coolant lines, exhaust system tubing, rollcages, anywhere you need to prepare tubing or pipe junctions prior to welding. The Tubing and Pipe Notching Tool is constructed of heavy-duty steel and high-grade aluminum for rigidity and it's lightweight. The vise portion handles 1/2- to 2-inch-diameter tubing and is clearly marked in 1-degree increments, which makes it a snap to create accurate, ready-to-weld junctions. The beefy 3/4-inch-diameter shaft practically eliminates hole saw deflection, ensuring each cut is as clean as possible.

Nitrous FiltersMost people don't realize that the nitrous they refill their bottle with may not be very clean. Debris inside the fill tank can easily be transferred into the bottle and this includes dirt, rust, or corrosion. Nitrous Pro-Flow, a division of Wilson Manifolds, offers stainless-steel nitrous filter adapters that help prevent debris from damaging sensitive solenoids, spray bars, and nozzles. Nitrous Pro-Flow designed its filter adapters to provide protection for the entire system without impeding the flow of nitrous. The stainless-steel body has a removable mesh screen filter that fits standard and high-flow bottle valves with AN-4 or AN-6 lines.

They are offered in both stainless and heat-treated 8740 chromoly steel. Both are nominally rated at 170,000 psi, which is substantially stronger than Grade 8 hardware.

Buyers have a choice between conventional hex and 12-point heads in both polished stainless steel or black-oxide-finished chromoly.

More StopThe first performance modification most enthusiasts make to their truck is going to larger tires and wheels. Unfortunately, the braking distances increase as tire size grows. Now, Performance Products has prepared the Baer EradiSpeed +1 Brake Upgrade to overcome this problem. At an affordable price, the Baer EradiSpeed +1 systems include oversized rotors and mounting brackets for the factory calipers. The larger rotors provide more stopping leverage compared with stock brakes and have additional metal in the friction area to maximize pad contact. Cooling and overall weight are controlled with directional-curved veins, cross-drilling, slotting, and aluminum hats. Rotors and caliper mounts are zinc-washed to prevent rust.
