Start Me Up
In the unending quest for weight reduction, here's a cool item. A high-torque mini-starter not only saves weight, it has more cranking power than an original, standard-size starter. Another advantage is that the small unit works in confined spaces when the full-size unit won't, so it's the hot ticket when you're using headers or engineering a custom application.
