Now That's A FanFlex-a-lite has developed a new 27-inch electric fan for '73-'02 Chevy fullsize trucks and '65-'86 Ford trucks with 28-inch radiators. The new 27-inch electric fan is a dual 13-1/2-inch fan that pulls 4,600 cubic feet per minute and eliminates the stock belt-driven fan and shroud. These electric fans improve horsepower and gas mileage, reduce fan noise, improve A/C output, and allow more control over the cooling parameters.

Cool ClampsPi-Thon Design Inc. developed the FireLock coupler to greatly improve exhaust system appearance, while making assembly and disassembly much easier. Each FireLock is CNC-machined from billet T-304 stainless steel and uses two internal compression rings to clamp down on butted sections of exhaust tubing. No slip fits or tubing expanders are required. Simply cut your tubing to the proper length, slide the ends into a FireLock, and tighten the threaded outer ends. The stainless-steel material is great for resisting corrosion in harsh environments, is easy to clean, and is an ideal match for any of the stainless-steel exhaust systems on the market.
