Racers every day are finding E85 as a cheap alternative to race gas, and now Holley has raised the bar on E85 race carburetors.

They're available in 600, 650, 750, 850 and 950 cfm and all come in the exclusive Hard Core Gray hard-anodized finish. They have E85 specific metering blocks, high flow power valve, 0.130-inch stainless needle and seats, 50cc secondary accelerator pumps, and secondary jet extensions installed.

Dial In Your Handling and Comfort

For serious enthusiasts, a set of adjustable shocks allow precise damping adjustments on each corner to match the car, track surface, and the driver's own driving style. Hotchkis Sport Suspension's all-new Hotchkis-Tuned Adjustable Performance Series aluminum shocks have been specifically designed to meet these needs while still returning a comfortable ride on the street.

Hotchkis tested these shocks on the road, on the track, and in the lab to develop a shock that meets the needs of the racing enthusiast. Utilizing the latest cutting-edge monotube shock technology, each Hotchkis APS shock absorber is built with a lightweight, smooth-bore, type-III hard-anodized aluminum body. Internally, they feature digressive disc technology, a high-flow piston, specially formulated oil, and high pressure nitrogen for consistent performance under varying conditions and temperatures. Polyurethane bushings are also installed at each end for superior vibration damping and shock control.

Like all Hotchkis Performance suspension products, the Hotchkis-Tuned APS Shocks are manufactured in the USA, come with all necessary hardware, are covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty, and best of all, they are designed as a direct replacement to the original equipment shocks.

Lightweight Oil Pumps For Big-Blocks

Big-block Ford oil pump failure is an all too common occurrence, as the casting develops a fracture at the section change around its mountings, which rapidly propagates like a sound wave and the oil pump falls into the oil pan without warning. Though the stock oil pump behaves reliably within its stock environment, for engines that are tuned or modified, Jon Kaase Racing Engines (JKRE) now offers a robust, upgraded, cast iron oil pump.

JKRE now offers a new, vastly lighter aluminum version to supersede its earlier iron units. Available for front sump or rear sump applications, these new Kaase pumps retain their sturdy, long section mountings and use the same impeller mechanism employed on their championship-winning Kaase 820 CID Pro Stock engines. Equipped with dual oil feeds to the rotor to improve idle and high-rpm oil pressure, they are supplied with the necessary gaskets and the highest grade ARP mounting studs and 12-point nuts. Pricing is $275. These new pumps accommodate stock and aftermarket oil pickup assemblies and are bench-tested before shipping.
