Track Max Hydraulic Roller Race Camshafts for Ford 5.0L
Trick Flow has offered its stage 1 and 2 high performance hydraulic roller camshafts for the late-model 5.0L pushrod engine since it came out with its cylinder head and intake packages for said engine. In the years since those cams debuted, performance expectations have greatly increased, and Trick Flow saw a need to meet those expectations and has done so with its new Track Max Race Camshafts.
Trick Flow's Track Max Race Cams are dyno-proven to produce a wide power curve over the entire rpm range, not just at a particular rpm point or peak. They are cut from premium blank cores and checked for proper hardness before being precision ground to within exact tolerances.
TFS-51303004 offers a 242/246-degree duration at 0.050 with a valve lift of 0.595/0.595-inch with 1.6 ratio rocker arms. Lobe separation comes in at 110 degrees. TFS-51303005 is a step up with a 250/254 duration split at 0.050, and the same 0.595/0.595-inch valve lift and 110-degree lobe separation. These cams are hot off the SEMA show floor, so check www.trickflow.com for updates and availability.

Interstate Batteries Introduces AGM Battery
Vehicles are equipped with more electronics than ever before, including the advent of Start/Stop technology in newer automobiles. Interstate Batteries looks to meet the power demand and cranking dependability of these on-the-go consumers with its new MT7 absorbed glass mat (AGM) battery, available this fall in group sizes 34, 65, and 78.
Whether you have a classic car fitted with modern power amenities, or a late-model vehicle equipped with numerous electrical accessories, the MT7 AGM battery is ideal for handling the cranking and reserve power demands, and can accommodate the cycling demands for drivers who plug in additional devices, such as cellphones, backup sensors and GPS navigators.
The new battery features Interstate's Pure Matrix Power, a 99.99 percent pure, non-alloy lead in ultra-thin plates. Interstate claims its new battery outperforms conventional batteries, delivering twice the life of most absorbed glass mat batteries and three times the life of flooded batteries. And, as an AGM battery, the MT7 AGM has all the typical AGM benefits of being leak proof, vibration resistant, maintenance free, and installable at any angle (except upside down).
Dual-Exhaust FloorPans For '65-'66 Mustang
As part of the GT and High-Performance dual exhaust package, the factory installed these reinforcement plates to support the muffler hangers. Without these supports, the stock factory floorpan could suffer metal fatigue from the weight of the dual exhaust system. These plates will properly support the exhaust, preventing floorpan warping damage.
Classic Tube's reinforcement plates are the same gauge metal as the factory originals and are pre-drilled for the hanger stud brackets. To provide concours originality, they are exact reproductions of the Ford factory stampings.
The configurations of the right and left plates are identical to the OEM parts, and the '66 models even have additional holes provided for seatbelt nutplate access. These plates are made in the USA with U.S. materials. Retail price is $29.95 each.
Snap-On Micro-Cordless Impact Driver
Versatile and efficient, the new Snap-on 1⁄4-Inch Hex Drive Micro-Cordless Impact Driver with Quick Change Chuck (CT661QC) is the perfect cordless impact for hard-to-reach areas. This new Micro Impact Driver offers a hefty 50 ft-lbs of torque output, as well as a patent-pending oversized variable-speed trigger that allows for one-hand operation to toggle quickly from forward to reverse.
Twin-beam lights illuminate your work area (handy for under dash use), while a built-in brake stops the tool from throwing sockets and fasteners. Charging the battery is a quick 30 minutes and a built-in gauge measures the state of the battery charge.
750-CFM Street Demon
Demon Carburetion has introduced a new 750-cfm Street Demon carburetor. The 750 looks identical to its forerunner, except for the size of its primary throttle valves, which have been enlarged in diameter from 13⁄16 to 111⁄16. The main venturii diameter has also been enlarged, and predictably, the calibrations have also been increased.
As with the 625 that came before it, the 750 accommodates square- or spread-bore intake manifolds with an adaptor plate supplied in the drop kit. It also benefits from the 625's unique fuel bowl that is integrated with the main body. Available in either aluminum construction or in an exclusive automotive-spec composite, the composite bowl demonstrates its driveability credentials particularly in hot stop-start conditions. Because it reduces heat transfer by as much as 20 degrees Fahrenheit, it contributes to faster hot restarts. A single fuel inlet simplifies installation and two-stage metering rods accommodate most tuning requirements, without carburetor disassembly or removal. A reliable electric-assist bimetal coil choke is provided for cold starting.
Street Demons will be available in three part numbers and finishes: 1903, all aluminum tumble-burnished; 1904, tumble-burnished with composite fuel bowl; and 1905, all aluminum hand polished. Prices are $369.95, $399.95, and $469.95 respectively.
