Street machine gear: Reproduction XA-XC mirrors, positioning jacks, intake manifolds + more

We check out some new gear on the market; Falcon XA-XC mirrors, billet brake calipers, Tru-Fit sound deadening and more

Reproduction XA-XC Falcon mirrors

Falcon XA-XC mirrors

BECAUSE they hang off the side of your car, mirrors are often the first casualties in a car-park bingle. And unfortunately, if you own an XA-XC Falcon, it’s become increasingly difficult to source new-old-stock mirrors for your classic ride. Fortunately, Rare Spares now offers reproduction left and right units for XA-XC Falcs, including a remote-operated right-hand version true to factory options. To find out more, head to rarespares.net.au.

Vehicle positioning jacks

vehicle positioning jacks

SHIFTING a non-driving car around your workspace is rarely a fun task, especially if you’re working solo. But with these HAFCO VJ-860 vehicle positioning jacks, you’re not held back by the limits of your steering system, allowing for easier movement of your car within a confined space. Getting your pride and joy onto the jacks is easy as pie, too – simply slide the rollers around each tyre and pump the hydraulic foot pedal. Sold in pairs, each jack is good for 680kg. To find out more, visit machineryhouse.com.au.

Tru-Fit Resomat

sound deadening

TRU-FIT has been in the automotive flooring game for three decades, offering up complete solutions for in-car carpeting. The company’s Resomat Premium sound deadening is designed to not only cut down on cabin noise and heat, but improve audio quality.

Resomat is not bitumen- or butyl-based, meaning it stays soft and easy to remove if need be. Visit trufitauto.com.au or call 1300 335 896 for more info.


Intake manifolds

intake manifolds

BRIAN Tooley Racing Equalizer 3 intake manifolds are now available through RaceMAX. They feature profiled and O-ringed port openings, an underslung plenum to make the most of under-bonnet space and a 102mm profiled throttle bore. There are versions to suit both cathedral and rectangle ports. These manifolds are known to offer optimum performance in the 6000-8000rpm range and beyond, with moderate to high boost levels. Email sales@racemaxdirect.com.au or call (02) 9791 5030 to find out more.


Reciprocating saw

Ryobi saw

THE humble reciprocating saw has become a staple of home engineering, renowned for its ability to chop things into smaller things.

Ryobi’s ONE+ saw features a variable speed trigger, and is designed to cut down on excess vibration to maximise comfort. Like the rest of the ONE+ range, it runs on a rechargable, interchangeable 18V battery. For more info, visit ryobi.com.au.

Right now, they’re available for 5455, 5855, 6662 and 6762 turbochargers with V-band inlets, with a variety of extra options to hit the market in the near future.
