The LS Rollers And The Rockin' Band
Proform has a new addition to its line of performance valvetrain products. These new roller rockers for the GM LS1 and LS6 engines are engineered to replace the factory rockers and fit under the stock GM valve covers. Roller rockers reduce internal friction and wear, as well as prolong valvetrain component life. They can be used with all types of engine oil and additive lubricants. They are available in 1.7-ratio or 1.8-ratio and can be installed with normal handtools.

These aftermarket valve covers from PML will fit the heads found on many crate engines and factory powerplants in '87-'98 Chevy and GMC trucks and SUVs. The sand-cast aluminum construction is stiffer than stock, so the two center bolts aren't needed to keep a seal. The PCV/breather/oil-fill holes are also removed from the top surface, but if these holes are needed they can be cut into the intake side of the cover. The slightly taller than stock covers are available in as-cast, black, or Chevrolet Orange powdercoat with brushed fins and script, and in polished finishes.
New Mamba Offroad alloys are unique in design and rugged. Mamba wheels feature a diamond-cut, clearcoated finish and, depending on wheel style, include forged 6061 aluminum trim bolts, studs, and nuts. Each design includes a two-piece, die-cast aluminum center cap with stainless steel hardware. Four styles are available in 17-to 22-inch sizes and with offsets for stock-height and lifted trucks.
