FEED THE BEAST: Cutting Edge Gen III Induction Technology From Wilson

The system starts with Wilson's new Billet Bank Intake manifold, using an F1-style "breadbox" design housing tuned-length runners. Designed with state-of-the-art solid modeling software, the cylinder banks are machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum. Each manifold is heli-arc welded for precise fit and structural integrity, and CNC ported for maximum power.  Once the manifold is constructed, “The Beast” begins to take shape. Wilson engineers add a patented Nitrous Pro-Flow V-Force port injection nitrous system, which is adjustable from 150-500 horsepower. Fuel and nitrous port locations are precisely set according to years of dyno research and development. The system includes high-flow solenoids, billet distribution blocks, exclusive V-Force nozzles, stainless steel hard lines, a nitrous purge solenoid, braided stainless steel connector hoses, precision stainless steel jets and Weather Pack electrical connectors. Finally, a flow-matched Wilson billet throttle body - from 78mm to 95mm depending upon application - and matching billet high-flow fuel rails are added for optimum performance.  The result: the ultimate Gen III induction system, capable of producing earth-shattering horsepower and torque.

X MARKS THE SUPPORT

The Hotchkis Sport Suspension X-Brace for ‘67-69 F-Body convertibles was designed to add rigidity to the chassis by replacing the flimsy factory brace that was often discarded. As an added benefit this brace allows for the use of larger tube exhaust systems, that often require removal of the factory brace.  Fabricated from 10-gauge steel, this brace features extra reinforcing gussets, laser etched Hotchkis logo, powdercoated gloss black finish and stainless mounting hardware (plus anti-seize for the stainless fasteners).  With this often-overlooked finishing touch for any convertible restoration, and a set of Hotchkis convertible sub-frame connectors, you will achieve better chassis rigidity and a lower center of gravity than the coupe! Hotchkis kits come with all the hardware necessary for you to “Install on Saturday, Drive on Sunday” plus a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty.  For additional information visit their web site at: www.hotchkis.net.
