aFe's new Magnum Force Stage 2 cold-air intake system offers '03-'06 F-250/F-350 Ford truck owners a companyclaimed increase of 67 lb-ft of torque at 1,300 rpm. By integrating a battery relocation kit, aFe's system accommodates a 12-inch 360-degree radial high-flow, washable/reuseable air filter, for improved airflow. aFe's new high-performance Magnum Force system requires no underhood drilling, cutting, or fabricating, and it is installed using the factory mounting locations.
Advanced Flow Engineering (Afe)
let's face it, few things serve to grab our attention at a car show or cruise night more than a car with a thumping, high-performance idle. The Thumpr camshafts from Comp Cams are a new series of retro-fit hydraulic roller camshafts designed for use in '55-'98 262-400ci small-block Chevrolet engines that were originally equipped with flat-tappet camshafts. Thumpr camshafts are available in three different grind profiles, each one of which will produce a rough, racy exhaust note, as well as horsepower and torque gains at a different rpm range. Their hydraulic roller design means that they will deliver a power increase over an identical hydraulic flat-tappet grind without sacrificing reliability or ease of maintenance.
Get The Clunk Out
Flaming River has designed this Tru-Steer steering shaft to get rid of the clunk in the steering system of '99-'07 gM trucks. The shaft is Flaming River's EZ Fit shaft, a heavyduty, spring-loaded shaft that helps absorb chassis flex and road-vibration, and it has 3 inches of slip and collapsibility. Precision-machined stainless steel pinch bolt-style upper and lower yokes provide an OEM shaft connection to the steering box and the steering column for performance, corrosion-resistance, and a positive, trouble-free installation. Custom applications are available for suspension and body lifts.
Banks has introduced the Banks Bullet, a budget-priced, entry-level diesel tuner/boost gauge for the '01-'04 Duramax lB7, as well as '03-'07 Cummins and Power Stroke pickups. The 2-inch gauge-mount device has Stock, Tow, and Sport power levels, which are changeable on-the-fly at the push of a button. Banks claims the Bullet adds as much as 60-plus hp and 100-plus lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels, offers built-in AutoRate and ActiveSafety safeguards, and stacks with any aftermarket chip or programmer.

Let Mother Polish The Wheels
Mothers PowerBall family now includes the PowerBall Mini MD or Metal Doctor. It's just like the PowerBall but in a more aggressive form to remove nicks and scratches in minutes, saving time and money. Just chuck this thing into your cordless drill and start polishing out the imperfections. When used with Mothers PowerMetal Scratch Removing Polish, this time-saving tool restores damaged wheels, diamond-plate, and virtually any uncoated, polishable metal. Perhaps best of all, the PowerBall Mini MD is washable and reversible.
The Second Amendment
NCD Customs now offers an extremely superior alternative to the stock Nissan Titan upper control arms (UCA) that traditionally make contact with the coil bucket when even the smallest lift kits are installed. The NCD UCAs are designed as a simple bolt-on solution, fitting all '04-'07 two- and four-wheel-drive Nissan Titans. The NCD UCAs improve off-road handling, provide increased droop, and allow for longer shocks to gain clearance for larger wheel/tire combinations. Also, they can be used with almost any lift kit on the market that would normally retain the stock UCA.
Watt About My Rearend?
Named after its inventor, James watt, the watts link is used as a means to center the rear axle. The team at KP Components has designed a true Bolton watts link kit that is geared for the home installer. The kits are designed for the '88-and-later Chevrolet and gMC trucks using the factory 10-bolt rearend. Earlier gM applications like the '67-'72 and '73-'87 trucks, along with the Ford F-150s, will also be available in the near future.
