New from Performance Online, Inc. is their lightweight aluminum D52 dual-piston caliper, which is part of their Power Regulator Series. POL's calipers are completely redesigned and replace the popular large GM D52 caliper found on both cars and trucks from the late `60s through the early `90s and used on many IFS kits. The new caliper has many improvements, such as aluminum construction for lighter weight and quicker heat dissipation, trick-looking casting for better appearance (polished shown), and dual 47mm pistons. Slider pin insulators provide quiet and smooth operation throughout the caliper movement area, unlike many other aluminum calipers. POL's calipers are all-new and come loaded with semi-metallic D52 pads. Please contact Performance Online at 800-638-1703, or visit their website at www.performanceonline.com.
Phoenix Transmission Products is now building all its performance automatic transmissions with a special seven-part cleaning and burnishing process that produces a beautiful semi-polished finish on the case--inside and out. This process closes up porosity in transmission cases, reduces stress points, and strengthens the material to resist cracking. The process uses only biodegradable materials and has eliminated the use of paints and harmful chemicals as well. In addition, all external hardware on these transmissions is cadmium-plated to resist corrosion and stay looking good for years to come. For more info, contact Phoenix Transmission Products at 866-SHIFT-UP, or online at www.phoenixtrans.com.
