(JOE)>> HEY WELCOME AGAIN TO THE SHOP. JUST LIKE A CERTAIN FAMOUS BURGER JOINT COMMERCIAL, WE LIKE FOR YOU GUYS TO HAVE IT YOUR WAY. AND WE KNOW THROUGH READING YOUR EMAILS YOU LIKE THE TECH TIPS WE BRING YOU FROM TIME TO TIME THAT MAKE YOUR

ENGINE PROJECTS MORE EFFICIENT AND AFFORDABLE. SO WITH THAT IN MIND WE'VE COLLECTED SOME OF OUR MORE

POPULAR TECH TIPS FOR TODAY'S SHOW, BEGINNING WITH ONE THAT TEACHES YOU HOW TO DO YOUR OWN ENGINE DETECTIVE WORK.

(JOHN)>> SOLVING AN ENGINE MISFIRE CAN ACTUALLY MAKE

FOR SOME PRETTY SERIOUS DETECTIVE WORK SOMETIMES. NOW I KNOW A LOT OF GUYS THAT WILL ABSOLUTELY GO AHEAD AND REPLACE EVERYTHING, ALL THE WAY FROM THE CAP AND ROTOR DOWN TO THE PLUGS. THE PROBLEM WITH THAT IS THEY DON'T ACTUALLY KNOW WHERE IT WAS COMING FROM. SO TODAY WE'RE GONNA GO OVER SOME DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS AS WELL AS A CHEAP AND INEXPENSIVE TRICKS TO GO AHEAD AND PIN POINT THOSE ISSUES, FIX THEM, GET YOU BACK OUT ON THE ROAD SAFELY. AND WHILE THIS ZZ FOUR SOUNDS STRONG, IT'S ONLY RUNNING ON SEVEN CYLINDERS. WE DISABLED ONE TO SHOW YOU HOW TO FIND IT. USE A TEMP GUN, WHICH YOU CAN GET AT ANY PARTS STORE, AND CHECK EACH EXHAUST HEADER TUBE. NOW IF YOU HAVE A CYLINDER THAT READS MUCH LOWER THAN

THE OTHERS, CONGRATULATIONS.

NOW YOU KNOW WHICH CYLINDER'S THE CULPRIT. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A TEMP GUN, WELL HERE'S AN OLD HOT RODDER'S TRICK. SIMPLY MODIFY A WATER BOTTLE, IT'LL WORK EVERY TIME. COULD IT BE A PLUG, WIRE, OR COIL PACK? TO FIND OUT TRY SWAPPING THE DEAD CYLINDER PLUG WITH ONE OF THE OTHERS. IF THE MISS MOVES TO THE OTHER CYLINDER, IT WAS INDEED A BAD PLUG. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE, DO THE SAME SWAP WITH THE PLUG WIRES, OR IN SOME CASES COIL PACKS. OBVIOUSLY WE'VE GOT A BAD WIRE. SO AFTER A QUICK, CHEAP SWAP, PROBLEM SOLVED. OKAY WE SHOWED YOU HOW TO DIAGNOSE A CYLINDER MISFIRE WITH NOTHING MORE THAN A USED WATER BOTTLE AND A LITTLE BIT OF TIME. NOW IF YOU'VE GOT A DEAD CYLINDER PAST THAT, WE'RE GONNA NEED TO GO AHEAD AND LOOK INSIDE THE MOTOR.

NOW THERE'S A COUPLE OF TOOLS THAT ARE ENGINE SPECIFIC TO GO AHEAD AND HELP ME DIAGNOSE THOSE PROBLEMS WITHOUT STARTING TO SNATCH PARTS. CHECK COMPRESSION FIRST, IT'S THE EASIEST WAY TO CHECK FOR RING ISSUES, AND/OR HEAD GASKETS WITH THE ENGINE STILL IN THE CAR. WE'RE USING THIS MATCO DIGITAL COMPRESSION TESTER. NOW IT HAS THE ABILITY TO STORE RESULTS FOR UP TO 12 CYLINDERS AND DISPLAY INDIVIDUAL CYLINDER READINGS, PEAK READINGS, AND THE AVERAGE READINGS

ACROSS THE CYLINDER BANK. WITH THE IGNITION DISABLED AND THE THROTTLE BLADES OPEN, HAVE A BUDDY TURN THE MOTOR OVER ENOUGH TIMES TO HAVE THE COMPRESSION STROKE HIT AT LEAST FIVE TIMES OR UNTIL THE COMPRESSION TESTER STOPS RISING AND LEVELS OFF, PERFECT FOR THIS ENGINE. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK ALL THE CYLINDERS. THEN JUST SIMPLY COMPARED THE NUMBER. WE'RE LOOKING FOR GOOD, CONSISTENT AVERAGE, MAKING SURE THAT NO ONE CYLINDER IS MORE THAN 10 PERCENT AWAY FROM ANY OTHER CYLINDER. ALRIGHT NOW WHAT IF YOU'VE GOT ONE THAT'S STILL BAD? WELL THE EASIEST WAY TO VERIFY RINGS IS TO GO AHEAD A LITTLE BIT OF 30 WEIGHT MOTOR OIL AND TRY AGAIN. NOW IF YOU STILL HAVE A LEAK, WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO GO AHEAD AND LOOK FOR A BURNT OR BENT VALVE. WE DO THAT WITH A LEAK DOWN TEST. WITH THE CYLINDER AT TDC, WE'LL USE THIS TOOL FROM MATCO WHICH REGULATES AIR PRESSURE AT 90 POUNDS IN THE CYLINDER WITH THE VALVES CLOSED. BUT WE KNOW THESE VALVES ARE GOOD, BUT IF YOU HAD A BAD INTAKE VALVE, WELL I CAN ACTUALLY MIMIC THAT, SHOW YOU WHAT TO LOOK FOR BY SIMPLY OPENING THIS VALVE UP. IF YOU'VE GOT AIR COMING OUT OF THE CARBURETOR, YOU KNOW YOU'VE GOT AN INTAKE VALVE PROBLEM. NOW THE EXHAUST SIDE. WITH THE EXHAUST VALVE CRACKED OPEN YOU CAN SEE THE AIR COMING OUT OF THE EXHAUST. IT'S PRETTY COOL EH? WELL IF THE COMPRESSED AIR WAS ACTUALLY CAUSING BUBBLES IN THE RADIATOR OR WE HAD SOME MILKY LOOKING OIL,

CHANCES ARE WE'VE GOT A BLOWN HEAD GASKET. SO THESE ARE SOME STEPS FOR YOU TO DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEMS YOURSELF WITH SOME CHEAP TRICKS AND SOME SPECIALTY TOOLS.

AND WITH A LITTLE BIT OF TIME YOU WON'T WASTE A WHOLE BUNCH OF HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS YOU NEVER ACTUALLY NEEDED.

(JOE)>> IT DOESN'T TAKE AN EXPERT ENGINE BUILDER TO UNDERSTAND WHY YOU GET MORE STRENGTH AND DURABILITY FROM FOUR BOLT MAINS ON YOUR HIGH PERFORMANCE ENGINE BLOCK COMPARED TO TWO BOLT MAINS. RECENTLY WE SHOWED YOU HOW TO CONVERT A TWO BOLT MAIN BLOCK TO FOUR BOLT BY FIRST HAVING A MACHINIST DRILL EXTRA BOLT HOLES. THEN ADDING A NEW SET OF MILODON BILLET SPLAYED CAPS. THAT WAS FOLLOWED BY LINE BORING TO GET THE CAPS BORED CLOSE BEFORE A FINAL LINE HONE.

(JOHN)>> NOW ALL OF THAT CAN COST OVER $400 DOLLARS DEPENDING ON YOUR APPLICATION AND THE AVAILABILITY OF PARTS. SO HERE'S A CHEAPER, MORE COST EFFECTIVE WAY TO ADD STRENGTH TO YOUR BLOCK BY CONVERTING THESE FACTORY STYLE BOLTS TO AN ARP STUD. SINCE THE BOLT INSTALLS DIFFERENTLY, IT'S GONNA GIVE A DIFFERENT GAUGE READING. BUT WHY ARE STUDS BETTER THAN BOLTS IN YOUR MAIN CAPS? WELL CONSIDER THIS, A BOLT HAS TWO FORCES OF FRICTION WHEN IT'S TORQED DOWN. FIRST THE THREADS STRETCH FOR A CLAMPING FORCE, AND THAT'S GOOD BUT IN ADDITION IT ALSO TWISTED AS YOU TORQUE IT. A STUD IS ONLY INSTALLED FINGER TIGHT. WHEN THE NUT DRAWS DOWN ON IT IT ONLY PULLS ON ITS LINEAR AXIS. THIS MAKES FOR BETTER TORQUING AND A MUCH STRONGER FASTENER.

(JOE)>> NOW REINSTALL THE CAPS, THEN THE WASHERS AND NUTS, AND DON'T BE STINGY WITH THAT ULTRA LUBE. NEXT YOU CAN TORQUE THEM DOWN TO SPECS.

( )>> WITH THESE ARP STUDS, THE HOUSING BORE CLOSED UP AROUND FOURTENTHS TO A HALF A THOUSANDTHS.

(JOHN)>> HERE'S A CRITICAL FOLLOW UP TO THE SWAP, TOUCHING UP THE LINE HONE AT YOUR MACHINE SHOP TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS BACK AND ROUND.

THIS INSURES THERE'S NO BIND OR UNWANTED FRICTION ON THE CRANK SHAFT. NOW WE'RE BACK AROUND TO SIZE AGAIN. HEY THANKS FOR YOUR HELP TODAY JOHN. NOW BEST CASE SCENARIO, IF YOU DIDN'T TOUCH UP THE HONE, LOCK UP THE CRANK SHAFT WHILE YOU'RE

ASSEMBLING IT JUST TO FIND OUT IF YOU'VE GOT TO GO TO THE MACHINE SHOP.

(JOE)>> YEAH BUT THE WORST CASE SCENARIO IS IT SEEMS FINE UNTIL YOU MAKE THAT FIRST PASS AT THE TRACK AND, WELL IT COMES UNGLUED AND THAT'S

GONNA REALLY COST YOU.

(JOHN)>> YEP, SO WITH THE PRICE OF THE STUDS AND THE LINE HONE, IT ONLY SET US ABOUT $150 DOLLARS. AND UNLESS YOU'VE GOT DEEP JOE ELMORE POCKETS, IT'S DEFINITELY AN IDEAL WAY TO BEEF UP YOUR BOTTOM END WITHOUT LEANING OUR BANK ACCOUNT.

(MIKE)>> SOMETIMES IT'S THE BASIC LITTLE DETAILS THAT

OFTEN GET OVER LOOKED, BUT CAN ACTUALLY MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN THE LONG RUN. NOW WITH THAT IN MIND, TODAY WE'RE GONNA SHOW YOU SOME QUICK TECH TIPS THAT WE'VE LEARNED OVER THE YEARS THAT CAN HELP MAKE YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE IN THE SHOP OR GARAGE

A LITTLE BIT EASIER. FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU'RE A RACER OR A GEAR HEAD AND YOU HAVE SEVERAL CAM SHAFTS LAYING AROUND THAT YOU USE

ON REGULAR BASIS, HERE'S A SUPER CHEAP AND SUPER SAFE WAY TO STORE THEM. FIRST SPRAY THE CAM SHAFT DOWN WITH WD 40. POSITION IT INSIDE A PIECE OF LEFT OVER OR NEW ROLL BAR PADDING, AND USE ZIP TIES AROUND THE PADDING TO SECURE THE CAM SHAFT. AND IT'S LUBED TO PREVENT RUST. NOW YOU WON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH OIL SOAKED CARDBOARD BOXES. AND IF YOU DROP THE CAM SHAFT, YOU'RE NOT GONNA

DAMAGE A LOBE OR A JOURNAL.

(JOE)>> HERE'S A LITTLE PROBLEM WE ALL FACE FROM TIME TO TIME, A STUD OR BOLT THAT NEEDS TO BE SECURED BUT THERE AREN'T ENOUGH THREADS HERE FOR A LOCK WASHER OR A NYLON NUT TO TAKE HOLE THERE.

SO WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO? WELL HERE'S A QUICK FIX THAT MIGHT BE RIGHT IN YOUR OWN TACKLE BOX. IT'S JUST STANDARD NYLON FISHING LINE. I THINK THIS IS 15 POUND TEST. I'M GONNA TAKE A PIECE, RUN IT THROUGH A REGULAR NUT LIKE SO, MAKE A LOOP, TAKE THE NUT, THREAD IT ONTO THAT STUD OR BOLT. NEXT TIGHTEN IT DOWN REAL GOOD, CUT AWAY THE EXCESS, AND YOU HAVE JUST MADE YOUR OWN NYLON NUT AND THAT BOLT'S NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

(MIKE)>> IF YOU'VE GOT A VEHICLE WITH A MECHANICAL

FUEL PUMP AND YOU DO YOUR OWN JET CHANGES IN YOUR CARBURETOR, HERE'S AN EASY WAY TO GUARANTEE FAST FIRE UPS AND AVOID ALL THAT EXCESSIVE ENGINE CRANKING. USING THE FUEL I DRAINED OUT OF THE BOWLS INTO OUR DRAIN CUP, I'M SUCKING IT UP WITH, WELL US PARENTS CALL THIS A SNOT SUCKER. WITH IT FULL WE'LL SQUIRT IT DOWN INTO THE OVERFLOW VENT, AND THIS IS ACTUALLY FILLING THE BOWL BACK UP. WHEN THE FUEL REGISTERS IN THE SITE WINDOW, GO AHEAD AND REPEAT THE SAME THING FOR THE OPPOSITE BOWL. NOW YOU'VE GOT A PRIMED CARBURETOR, HIT THE KEY, AND ENJOY AN IMMEDIATE FIRE UP.

(JOHN)>> WE GET A LOT OF QUESTIONS FROM YOU GUYS HERE

ABOUT IGNITION SYSTEMS. WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE, AND WHICH ONE MIGHT BE

RIGHT FOR YOUR PROJECT?

SO TODAY WE'RE GONNA GO OVER THE TWO MOST COMMON TYPES AND AN EASY AND AFFORDABLE WAY TO UPGRADE YOURS FOR MORE HORSEPOWER. BUT NOW FIRST WE'VE GOT TO GO OVER WHAT THEY ARE AND HOW THEY WORK. THIS DISTRIBUTOR IS CALLED A HIGH ENERGY IGNITION, OR WHAT MORE GUYS CALL AN HEI. NOW IT IS AN INDUCTIVE DISCHARGE SYSTEM. AND IT'S ACTUALLY A STAND ALONE UNIT. IT TAKES ONE POWER SUPPLY AND HOUSES ITS OWN COIL. NOW THEY WERE USED IN MILLIONS OF STOCK TYPE VEHICLES BECAUSE THEY CREATED PLENTY OF SPARK AT LOWER RPM. NOW THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WITH AN INDUCTIVE DISCHARGE IGNITION SYSTEM IS THAT THE COIL CAN'T KEEP UP AT AROUND 5,500 RPM OR SO. IT CAN'T FIRE AND RECHARGE IN TIME RESULTING IN A LOSS OF HORSEPOWER AT THE TOP END. THE OTHER TYPE IS WHAT'S KNOWN AS THE CAPACITIVE DISCHARGE IGNITION SYSTEM, OR WHAT MOST PEOPLE CALL A CDI. NOW THE BEST PART ABOUT ONE OF THESE IS IT CAN CREATE A

FULL SPARK THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE RPM RANGE. SO YOU'LL NEVER LOSE POWER AT THE TOP END, BUT IT WILL REQUIRE SOME TYPE OF IGNITION BOX, WHICH ACTUALLY HOLDS A SMALL CHARGE FOR THE COIL TO DRAW FROM BEFORE IT MAKES ITS OWN POWER FOR THE SPARK PLUGS. AND THAT'S BECAUSE IT DRAWS POWER DIRECTLY FROM THE BATTERY. NOW SUMMIT RACING OFFERS A MULTIPLE SPARK CDI BOX

THAT ALLOWS YOU TO UPGRADE ANY TYPE OF INDUCTIVE

IGNITION SYSTEM TO A CDI. IT COST LESS THAN $150 BUCKS AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY A NEW DISTRIBUTOR.

THE FIRST STEP IN UPGRADING AN HEI IS TO REMOVE THE CAP AND ROTOR BUTTON.

THEN WE CAN LOCATE THE IGNITION MODULE, REMOVE THE CONDENSER AND MODULE, AND DISCONNECT THE WIRES.

WE CAN USE OUR INSTRUCTION SHEET TO HELP US DIAL IN

EXACTLY WHICH MODULE WE HAVE. ONCE WE CONFIRM WE'VE GOT A FOUR PIN, IT'LL TELL US EXACTLY WHICH DIAGRAM WE NEED TO USE. THE BOX COMES WITH WHAT I CALL A BAG OF GOODIES. IT ACTUALLY INCLUDES ALL THE WIRES, CLAMPS, AND EVEN TOOLS YOU MIGHT NEED TO DO THIS JOB. NOW YOU MIGHT HAVE SOME STUFF LEFT OVER, AND DON'T WORRY, THAT'S OKAY. REMEMBER, WE SAID THIS THING WILL UPGRADE ANYTHING FROM A TFI FORD TO A CHRYSLER. HEY YOU COULD EVEN USE THIS ON A POINTS STYLE DISTRIBUTOR AND HIDE THE BOX FOR THAT FACTORY LOOK WITH THAT NEW STYLE PERFORMANCE. NOW ONE THING I LIKE TO DO IS GO AHEAD AND REMOVE THE TERMINALS FROM THE PLASTIC CLIP, SLIDE ON SOME HEAT SHRINK. THEN USE A LITTLE BIT OF LOCTITE DIELECTRIC GREASE TO PREVENT FORMING CORROSION.

ONCE THEY'RE SNAPPED IN PLACE, A LITTLE BIT OF HEAT WILL SEAL THEM UP FOREVER. THESE PROVIDED CLAMPS WILL KEEP THE WIRES FROM GETTING RIPPED APART BY THE ROTOR BUTTON, AND THEY JUST GO RIGHT BACK INTO PLACE WHERE THE OLD MODULE WAS. AND NOW YOU CAN PUT THE REST BACK TOGETHER. NOW THE WAY YOU WIRE ONE OF THESE SYSTEMS UP IS JUST AS EASY AS A CONVERSION.

HEAVY RED AND BLACK GOES STRAIGHT TO THE BATTERY. NOW THE LITTLE RED WIRE IS LABELED 12 VOLT SWITCH. IT GOES RIGHT TO WHAT USED TO RUN YOUR HEI IGNITION.

THE GRAY WIRE'S FOR A TACH OUTPUT, ORANGE AND BLACK ARE FOR YOUR COIL POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE, AND OBVIOUSLY THE GREEN AND PURPLE GO TO WHAT WE JUST INSTALLED IN THE DISTRIBUTOR. NOW IF YOU'VE BEEN NOTICING A LITTLE BIT OF SPARK BREAK UP AT THE HIGHER RPM LEVEL, WELL IT MIGHT BE TIME TO GO AHEAD AND ADD SOME SPARK ENERGY.

TRUST ME, BY CONVERTING TO ONE OF THESE CDI IGNITION BOXES, YOU WILL FEEL A DIFFERENCE.

(JOE)>> IN THE 16 PLUS YEARS WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS SHOW WE'VE HAD A LOT OF LEGENDS OF HIGH PERFORMANCE. PEOPLE WHO MADE THEIR MARKS AS RACERS, OR INNOVATORS, OR BOTH, AND YOU KNOW ONE THING THEY SEEM TO HAVE IN COMMON IS MOST HAVE A BIG HEART. THEY'RE GEARHEADS WHO LIKE TO GIVE BACK, AND THAT'S SOMETHING WE DISCOVERED ON A RECENT VISIT TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. ( )>> WE'RE RAISING MONEY FOR KIDS, WE'RE HAVING FUN. WHO AM I? I'M VON HOT ROD. WHAT DO I DO? I PIN STRIPE, PIN STRIPE ANYTHING, CHECK THIS OUT,

LOOK AT THIS, WATCH THIS.

(JOE)>> WHEN BIG HEARTED GEAR HEADS WANT TO RAISE MONEY FOR CHARITY, THEY KNOW WHAT TO DO. BRING IN THE COOL CAR, CRANK UP THE ROCK N ROLL, AND COUNT THE CONTRIBUTION. SINCE 2005 THE EDELBROCK FAMILY HAS ATTRACTED GENEROUS GEARHEADS TO THEIR ANNUAL SATURDAY SHOW CALLED REVVED UP FOR KIDS. THIS ONE WAS SPECIAL BECAUSE IT'S THE COMPANY'S 75TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR. FRIDAY NIGHT BEFORE THE CAR SHOW SCORES OF INDUSTRY ICONS GATHERED IN VIC'S GARAGE FOR A FUND RAISING DINNER TO HONOR THE MILESTONE.

THE NEXT DAY THE EDELBROCK HEADQUARTERS LOT STARTED FILLING UP WITH AN IMPRESSIVE MIX OF HOT RODS, LIKE THIS PHOTOGENIC 1929 FORD ROADSTER THAT SITS ON '32 RAILS.

(TOM)>> I SOLD THE ENGINE OUT OF IT IN 1960 OR '61, SOMETHING LIKE THAT, FOR COLLEGE TUITION AND NEVER PUT IT BACK TOGETHER. I SHOULD HAVE DONE IT AND FINISHED IT BY 1963. SO NOTHING ON IT IS NEWER THAN THAT. IT'S ALL THE PARTS THAT I COLLECTED.

(JOE)>> HEY HOW ABOUT THIS BLOWN BANTAM FUEL ALTERED. OWNED, BUILT, AND ONCE RACED BY HARRY BURKHOLDER.

(HARRY)>> PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME, WHAT GAVE ME THE AUDACITY TO BUILD A CAR LIKE THIS AND THINK WE COULD CLIMB IN IT AND DO IT. AND I SAY, NOBODY TOLD US WE COULDN'T.

(JOE)>> SOME GUYS FROM OHIO TECHNICAL COLLEGE

BROUGHT A MERCURY COUGAR THEIR STUDENTS BUILT IN HONOR OF THE EDELBROCK ANNIVERSARY. LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS BROUGHT THEIR SKILLS TO COMPETE IN AN ENGINE BUILDING COMPETITION. AWARDS WERE HANDED OUT FOR SEVERAL CAR SHOW CATEGORIES.

EVEN AN ELWOOD DEAD RINGER LOOK A LIKE WON ONE. ( )>> NOW LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE BLUES MOBILE HERE. IT'S GOT A COP MOTOR, IT'S GOT COP TIRES, COP SUSPENSION, COP SHOCKS. IT'S THE MODEL BEFORE CATALYTIC CONVERTERS, SO IT RUNS GOOD ON REGULAR GAS. IS THIS THE NEW BLUE MOBILE OR WHAT?

(JOE)>> BUT THE TOP HONOR EACH YEAR IS THE VIC'S CHOICE AWARD. ( )>> 1929 FORD ROADSTER, FLAT HEAD VEIGHT, TOM LIEB, COME ON UP. THIS IS AN HISTORIC TROPHY GUYS.

(JOE)>> PROCEEDS FROM THE ANNUAL REVVED UP FOR KIDS GO TO NUMEROUS CHILDREN'S CHARITIES.

(VIC)>> THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT, AND WE WILL CONTINUE WITH A STRONGER MOVEMENT. INSTEAD OF ONE EVENT A YEAR WE MIGHT, WELL WE'RE LOOKING FOR A SECOND ONE NOW AND A THIRD ONE.

(JOE)>> SO WHILE IT'S A FUN CAR SHOW, IT'S ALSO ONE THAT LIFTS THE SPIRITS OF KIND HEARTED HOT RODDERS. THESE DAYS WE HAVE SMART PHONES AND SMART TV'S. NOW THERE'S A SMART DIAGNOSTIC TOOL CALLED THE HOOK FROM POWER PROBE. IT USES THIS POWER PROBE TIP HERE TO AUTOMATICALLY SWITCH TO THE CORRECT TESTING TOOL YOU NEED. IF IT SENSES RESISTANCE IT'LL DISPLAY OHMS. IF IT SENSES VOLTAGE IT'LL DISPLAY IT. NOW IT ALSO HAS A HOT SHOT MODE AND WITH IT YOU CAN QUICKLY POWER UP VARIOUS COMPONENTS. NOW THIS THING IS A TIME AND MONEY SAVING DEVICE, AND A MUST FOR ANY SERIOUS TECH GUY. OH IT ALSO COMES WITH A HANDY CARRYING CASE. AND IN CASE YOU WANT TO KNOW THE PRICE, ABOUT $500 BUCKS.

(MIKE)>> THERE'S NOTHING LIKE THE SOUND OF WIDE OPEN EXHAUST AT THE FLIP OF A SWITCH. NOW DOUG'S ELECTRIC EXHAUST CUTOUTS ARE MADE OUT OF ALL STAINLESS STEEL AND FEATURE HEAVY DUTY DRIVE MECHANISMS. PLUS THEY'RE MADE TO SEAL.

SO THEY'RE LEAK PROOF OPEN OR SHUT. THEY COME WITH A PREWIRED HARNESS, TOGGLE SWITCH, AND FUSE. NOW YOU CAN GET THESE THINGS AS A KIT OR INDIVIDUALLY FROM SUMMIT RACING.

(JOE)>> WHEN THIS CUSTOM PAINTED EDELBROCK ANNIVERSARY MUSTANG LEFT THE HORSEPOWER SHOP, IT IMMEDIATELY GOT A BLOCK IT FABRIC COVER. BLOCK IT FROM KIMBERLY CLARK WAS ALSO USED IN THE COVER FOR THIS '69 CAMARO. IT HAS A SOFT INNER LAYER TO PROTECT THE FINISH WITH A BREATHABLE SECOND LAYER THAT ALLOWS MOISTURE AND HEAT TO ESCAPE WHILE PREVENT WATER FROM GETTING IN. PLUS TWO STRONGER OUT LAYERS PREVENT DINGS AND KEEP OUT HARMFUL U/V RAYS. COVERS FOR CARS DOT COM SPECIALIZES IN THE RIGHT PROTECTION FOR THOUSANDS OF APPLICATIONS. SO THEY'VE GOT ONE TO FIT YOUR MAKE AND MODEL. BUT IF YOU'VE DONE MODIFICATIONS, SAY LIKE A BLOW POKING UP OUT OF THE HOOD, YOU CAN GET ONE CUSTOM MADE.

NOW THEY OFFER SEVERAL TYPES OF THIS BLOCK IT FABRIC FOR A COVER THAT SUITS YOUR INDOOR AND OUTDOOR NEEDS. OH WANT A LITTLE SPECIALIZED SILK SCREEN WORK, THEY'VE GOT YOU COVERED THERE TOO. THE GUYS AT TRICK FLOW HAVE TEAMED UP WITH QUICK FUEL TECHNOLOGIES TO PRODUCE A SERIES OF FOUR BARREL CARBURETORS FOR EVERYTHING FROM STREET TO ALL OUT RACING. NOW THIS IS THEIR STREET HEAT 650 CFM CARBURETOR, AND AS THE NAME IMPLIES IT'S FOR THE STREET AND BRACKET RACING. NOW THIS IS THEIR DEDICATED BRACKET RACING 850 CFM TRACK HEAT VERSION. THEY'VE ALSO GOT THIS BAD BOY ON THE BLOCK, A DOMINATOR STYLE 1050 CFM CARBURETOR DESIGNED FOR BIG BLOCK SERIOUS ALL OUT RACE CARS.

NOW YOU CAN GET MORE INFORMATION AND PRICING ON THIS SERIES AT SUMMIT RACING DOT COM. WELL WE'VE HAD FUN, HOPE YOU HAVE TOO, WE'LL SEE YOU SOON.
