Mighty Demon 850 Annular Carburetor
Demon Carburetion has introduced a new 850-cfm carburetor with annular boosters for high-performing big-block engines and large displacement or high-revving small-blocks.
Prepared with 1.560-inch venturii and intended to operate with 425- to 540ci engines with camshaft durations of 240-plus degrees at 0.050, this new carb is aimed at street car use, bracket racing, and heads-up class racing.
Years ago, Demon envisioned the possibility of increasing idle speed without disturbing the throttle plates from their correct position. The ingenious concept involved inserting a screwdriver in the air cleaner stud hole and making an adjustment. This innovation, known as the Idle-eze, is provided on this new 850 annular model, as is four-corner idle adjustment, power valve backfire protection, and a kick-down mechanism that accepts Ford's transmission linkage. As expected, this Mighty Demon features billet metering blocks and baseplate as well as throttle plates mounted on Teflon-coated throttle shafts that prevent galling in the bores of the aluminum baseplates.
Professional Dry Nitrous System
NOS research and development continually strives to push the performance envelope to the next level. NOS has developed three new dry nitrous kits: a single-stage and two dual-stage kits. NOS dry Pro Race Fogger kits are designed to be used with stand–alone engine management systems like the Holley Dominator and HP EFI systems that have programmable dry nitrous capability. This allows for complete control of the fuel, nitrous and ignition for the most repeatable results possible! Kits do not come with Bottle or electrical pack kits.
Features include eight NOS fan spray nozzles, two Pro Race solenoids capable of 500-plus horsepower, and nitrous jet sizes for 175, 250, 300 and 350 hp.

Air Hammer It
The new Blue-Point XL Air Hammer Drift Set (PHGL37KT) is the perfect solution for breaking free hard-to-reach bolts and pins that have seized due to rust and time.
Designed for suspension work where rusted shock and strut bolts cannot be accessed with conventional length punches and tapered drifts, the new Blue-Point XL Air Hammer Drift Set (PHGL37KT) provides the extra driving force of an air hammer where needed and its five-inch long parallel shaft design will not get stuck. The set includes the three most commonly used sizes (8 mm to 5⁄16-inch, 10 mm to 3⁄8-inch and 12 mm to 1⁄2-inch) and a canvas pouch for storing.
X-Celerate Your Cleveland
The Weiand X-CELerator single-plane intake manifold for 2V-headed Ford 351 Clevelands (PN 7516) has been re-tooled. According to Weiand, that means the popular Ford intake is now even better looking and higher flowing than ever. A revised runner design smooths airflow while giving the intake an even better appearance. The Weiand 7516 is built to support engines with an operating range of 1,500-7,000 rpm, and it accepts square-bore carburetors.

Designed for carbureted classic and performance vehicles, Driven's Carb Defender is designed for the unique needs of classic vehicles that spend much of their lives in storage between cruises and special events.
Special corrosion inhibitors work to prevent expensive repairs and diminished performance caused by ethanol-blended pump gasoline and the moisture it attracts. High levels of ethanol dilution in motor oil can lead to rust and other corrosion problems in the fuel system and inside the engine. This new additive, however, controls combustion chamber residue, plus cleans and protects surfaces of the fuel system and intake tract. The additive treats up to 25 gallons of ethanol-blended gas, and is recommended at each and every fill-up.

MSD High Speed DynaForce Starters
In many race engine applications, such as with blown alcohol or magneto-fired ignitions, an engine requires more rpm to fire up. MSD's new High Speed DynaForce Starters are designed to deliver higher cranking rpm to fire up your high horsepower race engine.
The High Speed starters feature all new components beginning with a 3.4-horsepower motor that spins a unique gear set combination resulting in higher cranking rpm for your racing engine. MSD incorporates a durable solenoid that will operate with 12- and 16-volt electrical systems.
Inside the downsized housing you'll find a balanced armature that receives guidance by two ball bearings for smooth engagement and thousands of starts. Another handy feature is that the billet mounting block can be rotated in different positions to help clear oil pans and exhaust systems.
MSD offers its DynaForce starters for Ford 289, 302, 351W (PN 50902) and Ford 351M, 400, 429 (PN 50922).

More FE Power, Please
Ford's venerable “FE" Series V-8 engines are often overshadowed by the more popular Windsor and Cleveland-headed small-blocks. But these engines were once the kings of dragstrips, road courses, and circle tracks, appearing in everything from passenger cars and trucks to the iconic Le Mans-winning GT40 Mk IIs and NASCAR Ford Galaxies. Now racers and street performance fans alike are rediscovering the FE as an affordable alternative to the small-block Ford.
Lunati's hydraulic and solid flat-tappet cams, as well as hydraulic and solid roller cams, help the FE to produce horsepower and torque numbers that were unheard of back in the engine's prime. Lunati cams for the Ford FE are engineered to deliver maximum power as well as complement the addition of the latest aftermarket aluminum cylinder heads, intake manifolds, headers, and ignition systems.
With several different lobe profiles available, there is a cam to match nearly every build. However, if one of the many cataloged cam profiles just isn't what you are looking for, Lunati can also custom design an even more potent cam profile for your specific Ford FE 352-428 V-8 application. Additionally, if you aren't sure about exactly which camshaft best complements your build, Lunati's race experienced technical support service is there to help guide you to the right cam profile for your needs. Lunati also offers a complete line of matched valvetrain components for the Ford FE engine family.
