Easy Plug Removal
Reaching down into an engine bay is a tedious task for anyone from the garage mechanic to the do-it-yourself driveway junkie. Powerhouse Products' new spark plug sockets are a great way to help weave your way through tight spots and remove your spark plugs with no sweat. They feature a unique side opening that doesn't require the usual spark plug length clearance and can be turned and slipped over the spark plug so that it can be removed in the standard manner with a box or open-end wrench.

COMP Cams has released its new Retro-Fit hydraulic roller lifters for Chrysler engines that are designed to fit three classic Chrysler platforms. They are designed for small-block (273-360 cid), big-block (384-440 cid), and Hemi (426 cid) engines providing increased durability as well as better throttle response, increased engine vacuum, and top-end horsepower. The cams are true drop-in replacement components and do not require any type of lifter bore or other engine modifications prior to use.
Portable Shock Kit
Having the ability to tune your shocks both in the shop and in the dirt is extremely beneficial. The new, portable N2 nitrogen kit comes with the essential tools to accurately adjust and recharge rebuildable shocks, air shocks, and hydraulic bumpstops. For easy and compact travel, the heavy-duty storage case with molded foam compartments holds a new, 20cf nitrogen bottle (available in steel or aluminum), a 450-psi regulator for those high-pressure recharges, and a high-pressure hydraulic hose.
