AMSOIL's Reformulated Silicone Spray
AMSOIL Silicone Spray has recently undergone a reformulation and packaging redesign. The product is delivered by means of an aerosol spray that effectively lubricates and protects non-metal surfaces with a dry lubricating film, making it ideal for applications that may be damaged by conventional lubricants such as grease or oil. AMSOIL Silicone Spray provides outstanding protection where light-duty or silicone lubricants are recommended, including rubber, plastic, nylon, upholstery, vinyl, wood, cardboard and other nonmetal surfaces. Silicone Spray's special non-staining formula is also excellent for waterproofing and protecting leather boots, shoes, jackets, suede, and more. It leaves a clear, odorless film and locks out water while keeping applications contaminant free. For more information about AMSOIL synthetic motor oils and performance products contact your nearest AMSOIL distributor, or call AMSOIL at 800-777-8491, or go to www.amsoil.com.

CPP has tuned the torsion bar and valve for smooth operation and excellent road feedback. They also work with factory power steering pitman arms and 3⁄4-30 rag joints, as well as the popular 7⁄16-inch tube size (11⁄16-18 inverted flare) pressure and 3⁄8-inch tube size (5⁄8-18 inverted flare) return port fittings.

Headers for LS1/LS6 Swaps in Chevy C10s
Patriot Exhaust Products has recently introduced an LS1/LS6 “Clipster” style header for the popular 1973-'87 Chevrolet C10 pickups. Header part number H8087 uses longer 1¾-inch primary tubes, which results in more horsepower and torque when compared to tight-tuck or block-hugger styles. These headers will accommodate stock factory steering setups, and most aftermarket conversion suspensions as well, and can be used with most aftermarket motor and transmission mounts designed for the LS1/LS6 engine transplant like Patriot's own SK100 mount kit. Extra ground clearance makes “slammed” trucks drivable and above framerail exhaust system installation easy. Headers come with welded oxygen sensor bungs in the collectors for fuel injection applications. Part number H8087 comes with a raw finish for individual customizing or with Patriot's very popular polished high-luster metallic ceramic coating for increased resistance to corrosion and thermal fatigue part number H8087-1. Patriot Headers come complete with high-temp gaskets, header bolts, reducers, and complete instructions.
