LOWRIDER Essientials

You can never have enough "toys" so be sure to add these to your list of "must haves"

Car culture is built around the desire to build and create, but along with it comes the never-ending search for parts, time, projects cars and of course money. As with all of our home garages, we’re always on the search for the next new thing and below we’ve compiled a short list of some of the hottest products for this month.

While some of these products are car specific, other’s are more universal, so be sure to check out these latest offerings and visit the manufacturers websites to see what else they’ve got for you and your ride.

The direct bolt on unit promises to offer a trouble free installation and now you can ride in confidence knowing that you’ve got a product which lives up to the Hoppos name.

EDELBROCK CROSS-RAM LS3 INTAKE

You’ve just completed an LS3 motor swap but something still isn’t right; and that’s probably because you’ve got a bland looking motor that needs a little oomph in the arena of looks and low-end performance. That said, Edelbrock is here to breathe some life into each of those departments.

Designed for Gen IV engines with LS3, L92 and L76 rectangular port cylinder heads. The Cross-Ram LS3 is a must have for anyone looking to improve performance between 1,500 – 7,000 rpm. The unique dual-plenum design features 13″ long runners with flanges that will accept two, 90mm GM LS3 throttle bodies. In addition, the unique cross-ram dual-plenum design is ideal for twin turbo applications. When matched with high flowing air filters and inlet tubes, the dual-plenum system gives neck-snapping performance with plenty of options for engine builders and tuners. Dyno testing resulted with gains of 27 horsepower and 28 ft-lbs. of torque over a popular aftermarket manifold.

AMSOIL GREASE GUN

The new AMSOIL Deluxe Grease Gun Kit is must for any garage of shop. Their new grease gun provides improved performance and added functionality, thus making the job of greasing equipment even easier. The unit develops up to 3,500 psi, ensuring grease is adequately applied to the application and the two convenient grease-distribution options (flexible hose and rigid pipe) help as well. The pistol-grip design and rigid hose allow one-handed grease application, while the flexible hose eases access to hard-to-reach locations. Some added features include a plastic tip cover to protect against debris and an easy-to-use plunger simplifies loading.
