Kaase P-38 Cross-Ram For Windsor
Kaase’s new P-38 cross-ram induction system for Ford Windsor engines was designed to deliver impressive low-to-mid-range torque, while utilizing a low-profile for greater hood clearance.
Depending upon the camshaft and cylinder heads that are used, the cross-ram’s lengthy runners awakens the engine’s torque production and induces its best driving characteristics from around 2,500 to 6,800 rpm. Compatible with factory-style and aftermarket street and race cylinder heads, Kaase’s new Cross-Ram system is available as a fully assembled kit or as individual components.
The complete engine management system, comprising ECU, sensors, injectors, and wiring harness, is tailored to operate efficiently with a high-flowing intake manifold. The P-38 Cross-Ram also includes incorporated fuel rails and trumpets.

Is This The Best Extension Cord Ever?
Designed as an easy way to help keep an extension cord neat, safe, and out of the way when not in use, RoboReel delivers 50 feet of 12-gauge cord with a “smart” three-outlet receptacle ball on the end. RoboReel features a rugged, circular casing that can be placed virtually anywhere (including being mounted on the wall, ceiling, or on the back of your truck), rotates 360 degrees for easy access to anything within a 100-foot diameter and with the touch of a button, turns on, off, and retracts. For added safety, RoboReel features redundant thermostats to prevent overheating and fire hazard, and features a 15-amp circuit breaker to protect those valuable tools. The cord winds in fast and slows down to docking speed—at the touch of a button—to prevent whipping action that can cause injury or damage. It will not retract when in use, and if the extension cord is ever stepped on or obstructed during its wind in, retraction will stop immediately. If extension cord is ever completely severed, power will shut off in less than a second to help prevent electrical injuries. RoboReel’s high-impact plastic construction is oil, gas, chemical, and UV resistant, and it is fully protected by a four-year or 4,000 winds (Whichever comes first) warranty. Suggested retail price is $329.

Put Your Cowl To Work
Good airflow and cool air increase horsepower, a power-adding fact that has resulted in numerous ram-air and cowl-induction hood designs on popular muscle cars. Now, thanks to rigorous real-world testing by Spectre Performance engineers on the dyno, salt flats, and racetracks across the country, easy bolt-on airboxes can put that cowl-induction hood to its intended use.
With high-quality fabricated aluminum construction and three different intake options, Spectre’s cowl induction air cleaners will fit most popular performance carburetors or TBI with a 51⁄8-inch opening. The road-race-styled airbox seals against firewall, drawing cold fresh air from the factory cowl vent area, while the round and straight back designs seal to underside of most OEM and common aftermarket hoodscoops, creating a true ram-air effect for maximum power and a high-tech look.
Every Speed By Spectre Cowl Air Box comes with a Spectre hpR filter, which comes pre-oiled, and is washable and reusable with excellent flow and filtration. All Spectre filters come with a lifetime warranty.
