All Aboard The Wiring Express
Ron Francis Wiring has done it again with their new Express panel system! The Express features 18 circuits with an optional internal electric fan cooling sensor, wiring, and built-in relays. It easily handles alternators that put out 140-plus amps, and it can accommodate every accessory requirement of a modern car. Like all Ron Francis panels, the Express includes a variety of special features, including their trademark "Select-a-Circuit." This unique and patented innovation allows you to power your accessories from direct battery power or from the ignition depending on how you position the fuse. The company's popular new Synergy series headlight switch is also part of the harness package, with a knob and bezel color-trimmed by you. A matching ignition switch and a full range of other switches are available to create a full set. For more information, contact Ron Francis Wiring or one of their dealers at 800-292-1940 or www.ronfrancis.com.
Bad Is The New Good
Leroy Brown better move over, because there's a new bad man in town! Barry Grant's BadMan, a new series of inline induction systems from Triple-D Induction, is now available for small-block Chevys. With interchangeable venturi sleeves, airflow ratings are available from 500 to over 1000 cfm. This unique, all-new Demon inline four-barrel carburetor combined with a Triple-D Aero-ram intake manifold provides even and superior fuel distribution. This allows larger camshafts to operate at low engine speeds with low vacuum and improves low-speed idle, part-throttle drivability, and fuel consumption. The BadMan has no gaskets to leak under float level, and has only three adjustments: two idle-mixture screws and one idle-speed screw. Designed with simple carburetor tuning and maintenance in mind, the BadMan is available in two finishes: "as cast" or silver powdercoat (shown). Models to suit big-block Chevys and LS1s are already under development. Get a hold of Barry Grant Inc. at 706-864-8544, or visit their Web site www.barrygrant.com.
