Your Tranny Can Stand The Pressure
Automatic transmissions are complex parts, mysterious boxes filled with fluid and strange-looking components that are oftentimes a challenge for even an accomplished transmission builder to understand. If you have a GM 700-R4 transmission in your truck, don't take chances with low line pressure and premature failure. TCI's new '82-86 GM 700-R4 Constant Pressure Valve Body puts an end to TV cable and line pressure problems. While the TV cable still needs connection for proper transmission operation, the TCI 700-R4 Constant Pressure Valve Body provides more freedom when setting part throttle shift points and works with a wide variety of cable brackets and carburetor styles.

Step On The Class Pedal
Lokar is excited to launch their new Competitor Series throttle assemblies designed with a unique internal spanner nut ensuring perfect pedal tension. By adding this built-in tensioning feature, Lokar has eliminated the possibility of excess slop in the throttle pedal. Another milestone of the Competitor Series throttle pedal is its larger and incredibly sturdy mounting base, which has an amazingly sleek and narrow appearance. The base is available in either a centered or an offset version that will raise or lower the center of the throttle assembly an entire inch. All of these features coupled with a spring-loaded throttle pad, Delrin bushings, and superior design have made the Competitor Series throttle pedal a real standout-or should we say "on." Available in a brushed or black finish. For more info, call Lokar Performance Products at 877-469-7440, or visit www.lokar.com.
