ANNOUNCING UNIQUE OIL FILTER ADAPTER FOR ALL LS ENGINES WITH AFTERMARKET OILPANS: THE FIRST OF ITS KIND

Written by Moore Good Ink Lakewood, NJ: Stef’s, the acclaimed oil pan maker from New Jersey, is celebrating its 20-year anniversary with the introduction of a unique, new oil filter adapter for LS engines. It is the first of its kind. For the able LS engine trans-planter, the problem has not been one of finding the desirable power unit, rather one of getting it to fit within the surroundings of a different engine bay. Often the original cast aluminum oil pan presents clearance issues. Horizontally mounted Stef’s new oil filter adapter will fit all LS engines with aftermarket steel oil pans, including the LS1, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 9. It also fits aftermarket blocks including those of Dart, Chevy LSX, RHS, and World. Designed for convenience with easy filter changing and improved header clearance, Stef’s new adapter features internal oil passageways of 5/8in diameter, offers provision for oil cooler hoses, and is supplied complete with oil filter and mounting hardware. The adapter kit comprises the adapter body, which is made of billet aluminum 6061 T6; filter element; mounting bolts and O-rings that seal the adapter to the oil pan; two removable AN-8 bungs, for oil cooler hoses; and a nipple to secure the oil filter to the adapter. Assigned with part number 6742, Stef’s complete LS oil filter adapter kit is priced at $240.30 and is available for immediate delivery. For printable catalog fact sheet click here.

First hand-adjustable pump/bypass combination from Weldon—lifetime warranty included

Written by Moore Good Ink Cleveland, Ohio: Weldon, the only racing fuel pump maker who uses all-metallic internal pumping components-no plastics or Phenolics permitted-has announced a new and innovative fuel pump with an integral bypassing regulator. Called the Sportsman, it is light weight (4.1lb) and supports race engines producing over 1200 horsepower. Rated as continuous-duty and with a convenient, hand-adjustable knurled knob on the bypassing regulator (no adjusting tools required), Weldon’s Sportsman features multiple mounting provisions on its base and is therefore easily interchangeable with most similarly rated fuel pumps. Because its internals are made entirely of tool steel, including the pump ring, pump rotor, and pump vanes, the Sportsman’s inner working parts will neither fracture nor deteriorate with heat nor will its flow be impaired when fuel pressure is increased. Operating on 12 to 16 volts this 4.1lb fuel pump has impressive pumping power with surprisingly low amperage draw. Efficiencies in the pumping chamber have a decisive effect on reduced amp draw which, in turn, liberates more electrical current to power other components. Inevitably, these efficiencies are further demonstrated in a cooler running pump-and cooler running fuel. Featuring AN-10 inlet and outlet ports and AN-8 bypassing port (all ports chamfered and counter bored for O-ring seals) the Sportsman boasts a Teflon diaphragm with a 1.7 sq. in. surface area. Thought to be the largest in the industry, this diaphragm effectively reduces fuel pressure fluctuations and is compatible with all fuels. The Sportsman, which is priced at $432.00 and fully covered by Weldon’s famous lifetime warranty, qualifies for contingency awards in NHRA, NMRA, and NMCA events. For printable catalog factsheet...
Kaase equips Boss Nine with stack injection

Kaase equips Boss Nine with stack injection

Written by Moore Good Ink Winder, GA: Jon Kaase has adapted the Boss Nine to fuel injection. The system includes an intake manifold with a hidden plenum below and stack injection above. Five-time winner of the Engine Masters Challenge, Kaase has succeeded in investing this new stack injected Boss Nine engine with exceptional torque and tractability – qualities not usually associated with stack injection. But the hidden plenum on the underside of the Boss Nine intake manifold equalizes the pressures in all induction tracts and provides the engine with a clean, consistent idle, excellent part-throttle performance, and instantaneous throttle response. The plenum also provides for brake vacuum and empowers the MAP sensor, which has a major influence in the metering of the fuel. Compared with a carbureted Boss Nine equivalent, the new stack injection system gives a surprisingly good account of itself. On a typical 520cu in engine with 9.8:1 compression ratio, hydraulic tappets, and running on pump fuel, the stack injection engine outpaced its carbureted rival by an extra 30lb ft torque. Although 520cu in has been the most popular engine displacement, Boss Nines are available from 429 to 600cu in. So far the most desirable engines in Kaase’s Boss Nine series have been those producing between 500 and 1,000 horsepower. Constructed with either a cast iron or a cast aluminum engine block and topped with Kaase’s efficient hemi cylinder heads, Boss Nine engines were developed using four intake manifolds. These accept 4150 and 4500-style carburetors, as well as Keith Wilson’s EFI system, and various BDS blower units. For printable catalog fact sheet click here. For further information...

RAM INTRODUCES BEST TOOL EVER DEVISED FOR ADJUSTING CLUTCH PEDAL HEIGHT

Written by Moore Good Ink Ram has pioneered a new clutch pedal adjuster (PN 78300) that not only corrects the pedal height of all aftermarket high performance clutch systems but also OEM systems. In addition it’s designed to function with any OEM or aftermarket hydraulic clutch system and eradicates all concerns associated with the over-travel of the release bearings. (Release Bearings with excessive travel can destroy the bearing or cause the clutch diaphragm to travel over center, resulting in high rpm engagement troubles) Compared with factory-style originals, most modern high performance aftermarket clutches require less travel to disengage. As a result, the pedal often sits higher than the enthusiast might desire; in fact, the factory pedal could often benefit from a slightly lower position. Available for immediate delivery and priced at $138.95, this new Ram HSA (Hydraulic System Adjuster) is easily installed and adjustable without lifting the car if the valve is mounted under the hood.
