LS Show Off
The General Motors LS engines are a convenient way of making reliable power, but it’s not so convenient trying to hook up aftermarket gauges to monitor them. Painless Performance now offers the solution with the PERFECT LS gauge controller. The compact LS gauge controller simply plugs into the OEM OBD-II connector and receives information from the factory engine sensors. It then converts the data into five different output signals for your aftermarket gauges, including vehicle speed, rpm, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and fuel level (when used with a factory sending unit).

The completely waterproof, state-of-the-art 500-amp solenoid has the versatility to be mounted in multiple locations depending on your application needs. Every winch is finished in a rugged UV-resistant matte-black coating with stainless steel hardware, oversized aluminum crossbars, a four-way roller fairlead, and a forged hook.

Sultan of Spark
Performance Distributors (Davis Unified Ignition) introduces the LS S.O.S. (Sultans Of Spark) ignition coils for LS/Vortec applications. The new technology in these coils allows you to open up your plug gaps to 0.065-inch to burn fuel more completely and produce more power and performance. The Davis Unified Ignition S.O.S. coils produce 28,000 volts under load, which is 7,000 more volts under load per coil. Superior thermal epoxy leads to improved heat transfer and vibration resistance. They mount in the stock location and the additional energy results in quicker starting and a smoother idle.

Short Strap
Those familiar with hauling vehicles on a trailer understand the problems that arise when the distance between the vehicle and the tie-down fitting is too close for conventional tie-down methods. To solve this problem, Mac’s Tie Downs has created the new Cinch Pack, a 10,000–pound-capacity assembly that shortens to two feet in length. Available in four colors (red, blue, black and yellow), the Cinch Pack meets the high standards that customers have come to expect from Mac’s. The Cinch Pack consists of four 2-inch by 6-foot cinch straps, four strap wraps for securing your tie downs when they aren’t in use or wrapping up excess webbing, and comes in the Mac’s signature duffle bag. With the Cinch Pack you no longer have to worry about whether you’ll be able to tightly and securely tie down your load when space is limited.
