Fasteners need to be tightened properly to achieve the required clamping pre-load or your engine could have big problems down the road. In this video, we show you how to check the accuracy of your torque wrench, and explain the need for proper fastener lubrication to get an accurate "squeeze" on critical engine parts. ARP developed their Ultra-Torque assembly lubricant for this reason, as it allows fasteners to reach their target clamping force without the need for repeated torque cycles, it offers a high melting point to stay on the fastener, and it is non-metallic.

Our friends at Car Craft Magazine were kind enough to include a picture of the 1969 Camaro "ZR9" on the cover of the Januay, 2016 issue! Thanks Car Craft!
The 1969 Camaro "ZR9 " was an invited guest at the 2015 Car Craft Magazine Summer Nationals in Milwaukee, WI. The car was on display in the Pro Builders Shootout area, and the crowds really ejnoyed seeing the car in person. This gallery attempts to capture some of the thousands of cars on hand in this inagural Milwaukee location. The Car Craft Summer Nationals is a great event, complete with the car show, as well as an autocross for participants.

The GM LS Engine is a super-popular swap candidate for many reasons, but they are not very attractive as-installed in their original cars. In this video, we show you some different LS style engines in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop and some things our crew did to make these versatile engines look as good as the Muscle Cars in which they are installed! Some of the tricks include using adapters to install traditional small-block parts like retro-looking Edelbrock Elite II valve covers and air cleaner on the 6 Liter V8 in the red 1965 Impala. We also show a ZR1-style LS9 installed in the ZR9 Camaro, the L92 V8 in the '64 C-10 pickup, and some Eastwood ceramic engine paint to keep them looking great.
Holley Performance Products tall LS valve covers are the latest addition to our extensive line of GM LS engine components that will add a custom touch to your engine bay and help you to stand out from the crowd. These valve covers were designed to add an additional 0.54” of internal clearance over factory height valve covers. The valve covers retain Holley’s signature integrated angled coil mounts, and the hi-tech look and performance of coil-on-cover applications. The Holley tall LS valve covers fit LS1, LS2, LS3, LS6 and LS7 engines using coils with a standard LS3 bolt spacing of 72mm. These valve covers come ready for installation with an OE style baffle and ventilation system, lengthened factory style mounting hardware, plus a billet aluminum oil fill cap. Installers are encouraged to reuse or replace the original gaskets specific to their application.
The Holley tall LS valve covers are die-cast to ensure high quality and detail. They are offered in four finishes to best fit your individual style. See more at www.holley.com.
There are a group of hardcore hot rodders who choose to DRIVE their hot rods and custom cars across the USA to the SEMA show each year, and they call their trip the Driven Dirty Tour. This year, we met up with some of the cars and people in Albuquesque, NM as they headed west.
