Early-Nova rack-and-pinion Cradle System
It's a given that improved steering response and better handling are good things in any vintage vehicle, and Flaming River Industries now offers both for '62-67 Novas with its rack-and-pinion steering conversion system. This new setup uses a precision jig-welded rack cradle, which bolts directly to the stock frame mounting holes-no modifications required. The rack cradle positions a quick-ratio (311/42 turns lock-to-lock) manual rack-and-pinion that maintains correct steering geometry, minimizes bumpsteer, and allows full turning radius. The system includes the steering column (in paintable, mill-finish stainless steel, or polished stainless) along with all necessary hardware and wiring. This manual rack system is for cars with small-block engines with stock-type oil pans, running manual or automatic transmissions. Use of rear dump-style headers, which Flaming River is now making, is recommended. More interested in F-bodies? Manual and power-assist systems for '67-69 Camaros are also available.

As an added benefit, the rack cradle strengthens the factory frame. -Steve Cole
First-class seating
MicroSuede LG1 seats
We all like a little luxury and comfort in a musclecar. Corbeau USA agrees, as evidenced by its new LG1 seat, now available covered in MicroSuede. Standard features on the LG1, which weighs in at 30 pounds, include high-density, injection-molded foam, ergonomic design, and integrated shoulder, kidney, and thigh support. The LG1 seat, which comes harness-belt ready, is fitted with leatherette high-wear patches and a fully adjustable seat back with a fingertip-controlled lever. The LG1 seat is also available in leather, in a wide version, and with inflatable lumbar support.

Pump It Up
The reciprocating-piston Race Pump breaks with traditional fuel-pump design and delivers the goods: 204 gph at an unregulated pressure of 60 psi, anywhere between idle and 10,000 rpm. The valveless, variable-displacement design means the Race Pump only provides as much fuel volume as is needed, while an anti-drainback design maintains line pressure even with the engine off. The Race Pump requires only 25 percent of the usual pushrod force, weighs a third as much as most diaphragm-style pumps, and is considerably smaller. CNC-machined from 6061-T6 billet aluminum and hardcoated for long-term durability, the Race Pump features stainless steel internals and proprietary seals designed for both gasoline and methanol applications.

Tighten Your Belt
Adjustable Belt Tensioner for LS Engines
Katech Performance is known for its track-ready performance products, and brings lessons learned on the track to the street with its adjustable belt tensioner for Gen III and IV small-blocks. This tensioner was developed for ASA racers, who were experiencing belts jumping off during downshifts, a problem also detected on street cars, especially high-mileage examples. The lightweight tensioner is machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum and features a higher pulley sidewall, providing more secure belt placement (a factory belt is used). Katech Performance's adjustable belt tensioner features a black anodized finish, with red or blue available at extra cost.Price: $135

Trained Seals
Seals-It Firewall Grommet Sealing System
A clean firewall is a sure sign of attention to detail, and Earl's Performance Products has added a way to sanitize those pass-throughs. These unique firewall seals stretch to allow a fitting to pass through, yet also grip the hose, keeping out fumes and debris. Seals-It firewall grommets are made from a fire-retardant, space-age rubber bonded to an anodized aluminum bezel, which is installed with pop rivets or sheetmetal screws. The outer aluminum outer bezel for all seven grommets is dimensionally the same; the difference is in the opening on the rubber seal, allowing Seals-It firewall grommets to work directly with all styles of Earl's hose and fittings.

Cold Play
Nitro Blast Extreme-Performance Brake Rotors
Using a bit of cold therapy in a spot that's usually hot, Power Stop's Nitro Blast slotted brake rotors are cryogenically processed at -300 degrees F and then heated, a process that actually improves the properties of the disc material. The rotors are then stress-relieved to prevent cracking and warping. This results in a stable rotor with a larger, smoother contact area that is highly resistant to abrasion. According to Power Stop, Nitro Blast cryogenically treated, slotted brake rotors will last twice as long as conventional rotors.

Nitrous Express E85-Compatible Nitrous Systems
Proving that even skyrocketing gas prices can't keep a serious gearhead down, Nitrous Express has introduced the first of many E85-compatible nitrous systems. The new kits are very similar to existing setups, but have a recalibrated fuel-delivery side and upgraded solenoids to handle the ethanol that makes up most of E85. According to NX, E85's extremely high octane rating and relatively low price gives street guys a fuel they can run in a high-compression, nitrous-boosted engine without fear of detonation. A multitude of setups are available, delivering shots ranging from 35 all the way up to 1,000 hp.
