Let Your C10's Big-Block Breathe
Hedman's new mid-length headers for big-block's maximize power and flow without sacrificing ground clearance. Chevrolet C10 and C20 pickup trucks have become increasingly popular among enthusiasts thanks to their plentiful numbers, an abundance of available parts and, in the case of the C10, a stock car-style truck-arm suspension that perfectly complements a lowered stance. Adding to the popularity of these trucks is the availability of classic big-block Chevy power, whether originally equipped or as a transplant. Big-blocks need to breathe, however, and if your truck is lowered, traditional long-tube headers can have major ground-clearance issues leading to scraped and dented primary tubes. Now, with the release of Hedman's new mid-length headers, C10/20 owners can get the most horsepower possible from their big-blocks, without having to worry about costly header or exhaust system damage caused by diminished ground clearance. Hedman's mid-length headers deliver maximum exhaust flow, while maintaining a lower profile than traditional long tubes. With 1¾-inch mandrel bent primaries, these headers have the capacity to complement heavy-breathing naturally aspirated or supercharged big-blocks. They also feature integrated ball-and-socket style flange collectors for a durable, gasket-free seal. They fit 1967-1987 Chevrolet and GMC ½-ton and ¾-ton trucks equipped with the factory 396ci or 454ci V-8 engine as well as aftermarket big-block Chevys that utilize factory-style heads. These headers are built so well that Hedman guarantees them for life and the HTC-coating for five years. For more information, call 562-921-0404 or visit www.c10headers.com.

Trans Dapt Makes Your Rearend Look Good
There is no better way to finish off the look of a well-built classic pickup than by replacing the old, beat-up, or rusted differential cover. Whether you're building your vehicle for show, street, track, or off-road, a new Trans Dapt powdercoated aluminum differential covers with polished accents will give you the unique, eye-catching appearance you are looking for. Helping to set Trans Dapt's differential covers apart from the competition is their satin-black powdercoated finish. Paint can fade, crack, peel, or flake off, especially when subjected to road debris and the heat generated by the differential gears. Powdercoating is stronger, lasts longer, and retains its luster much better over time. They are also easier to maintain than a chromed or polished piece as the powdercoating doesn't require any special polishing or cleaning to maintain its looks. Adding another dimension to the design, the ribs on the cover have been polished to create a unique two-tone look that stands out without being overly showy. Trans Dapt's differential covers are available for many of the most popular axles and vehicle applications including the Dana 25, 27, 30, 44, 60, and 80 as well as Dodge, Ford, and GM cars, trucks, and SUVs. These covers also come complete with a matching gasket and mounting hardware, making installation a breeze. For more information on Trans Dapt's powdercoated differential covers call 562-921-0404, or check out www.tdperformance.com.
