    Would the "$10 off a camshaft" apply to a custom ground cam?

    Thanks Mike - I am about to order your frame pads/mount kit for a 455 into a 67 Buick Special. What are the pro's and con's between the aluminum and cast iron frame pads?

    The aluminum pads are more susceptible to corrosion if used in a DD type car. They do weigh about half of cast iron if that's a consideration, but should be as strong. This is basically what the catalog states.

    How much of an improvement are the no-hop traction bars over stock (69 Skylark) ? I am building a 550+HP engine.

    They improve it quite a bit, they're basically a cheaper alternative to getting a whole new rear end suspension setup. They essentially reverse what the suspension is doing. The stock suspension is trying to lift the rear end when under load, by putting the no hop bars on it makes the chassis try to push the rear end down. By putting more of a downward force on the rear end, this results with better traction.

    I packed the fuel block off plate in the same box with the no hop bars and I wrapped the bars and little bushing thingies in newspaper to prevent them from chipping each other, so be sure to unwrap everything before you toss the paper
