New street machine gear: Edelbrock air cleaners + Haltech DTM4 can hub + engine mounts + more

We test some new street machine gear and gadgets on the market

EDELBROCK AIR CLEANERS

Edelbrock air cleanersThe perfect companion to the Edelbrock finned alloy rocker covers we showed you last time, this new line of Edelbrock air cleaners includes three models for single- or dual-quads, providing the right look for any nostalgia rod or muscle car. Additionally, the small oval air cleaner provides adequate bonnet clearance in demanding applications. The Classic Series air cleaners are available in either polished aluminium or a durable black powdercoated finish. They come with a medical-grade, pre-oiled cotton gauze element for excellent filtration, and will work with all popular 51/8in necks on popular carburettors and throttlebodies.

HALTECH DTM4 CAN HUB

The hub features four DTM4 ports and can be used for connecting up to three CAN devices, including Haltech IQ3 dash units, I/O Expanders and Wideband Controllers. You can also piggyback multiple CAN Hubs together if more devices are required. The hub comes with a DTM4 to DTM4 CAN cable, and a large range of cables are available separately between 75mm and 3600mm in length. For more information head to haltech.com

DIGITAL GAUGES

gaugesMade in the USA and inspired by the dash display of the classic Lotus Esprit that James Bond drove in the 1977 film The Spy Who Loved Me, these digital gauges from Intellitronix are decidedly cool. Each gauge features a built-in microprocessor to precisely measure functions like air/fuel ratios, oil pressure, water temperature, voltage, fuel level, and transmission temperature. Extra-bright LED lights and bar-graph displays make reading the gauges easy on the eyes, with clearly visible data that won’t distract you while driving. The 21/16in-diameter gauges come in a variety of colours – choose from Torch Red, Royal Blue, Aviation Green or Arctic White interfaces, with options for chrome or black bezels. In-dash mounting hardware is included. For more information, hit up Summit Racing at SummitRacing.com.

METALMASTER BEAD ROLLER

The 25mm driveshafts are supported in quality bearing bushes and incorporate greasing nipples for extra protection. The machine also includes a stand and six sets of rolls: 8, 10 and 12mm single-bead rolls and 2, 3, and 6mm stepped rolls.
