Chris Alston's Chassisworks designed this 9-inch rearend to bolt into Fox-body Mustangs. The housing comes in a variety of configurations and has all the bells and whistles attached to it. The optional antisway bar is welded underneath the housing and is mounted inverted when compared to traditional antisway bar setups. We assure you it works just as well. There are provisions to add aftermarket coilover shocks, and the rearend is pictured with VariShock adjustable units. Alston had his new upper and lower control arms bolted to this housing. They feature large Heim joints and heavy-duty construction to withstand the rigors of high horsepower and torque in heavyweight vehicles. For more information: www.cachassisworks.com.

We've always been fans of Canton Racing Products. Its parts fit well and are aesthetically pleasing. Here is the drop-in coolant tank for '03-'04 Cobras, '99-'04 Lightnings, and '02-'04 Harley Davidson F-150s. It is a replacement tank for the aftercooler's water and ice. It fits in place of the battery, which must be relocated. The tank's higher capacity allows for more ice and water-helping drop the air charge temps on the dragstrip or the street.

Currie Enterprises has mostly been known for its bolt-in rearend housings, but the company offers a complete line of suspension components as well. Here are the Currectrac control arms for the S197 Mustangs. The sturdy control arms come with greaseable ends and urethane bushings. For more information: www.currieenterprises.com.

Ctek boasts about having the smartest battery chargers in the world, and we don't doubt it after its representative, Ron Piasecki, went through the features of the Multi US 3300. This charger was designed for long-term charging, making it ideal to charge your Mustang's battery over the winter months while it hibernates in the garage. It is fully automatic, so just set it and forget it. We also liked the fact that you could leave the battery hooked up without hurting on-board electronics. For more information: www.ctek.com.

Jesel ValvetraIN knows how to impress even the most hard-core crowd. Its shaft rocker-arm system is bolted on to a wild, billet SBF cylinder head. We didn't know what to look at first-the fancy rocker arms or the Ultra Pro billet heads. The heads are made from billet aluminum and carved out using a five-axis CNC machine. The race-only heads have water jackets, which is an amazing accomplishment since the machining is so complicated. It is a process that can only be duplicated by a select few CNC specialty shops. The heads flow 457 cfm (intake) and 290 cfm (exhaust) at 0.850 lift. The rocker arms are Jesel J2K and are standard equipment on Nextel Cup engines. For more information: www.jeselonline.com and www.ultrapromachining.com.

Ford Racing Performance Parts brought all sorts of neat rides, and we loved the FR500C (shown) in blue. This factory-built hot rod has made a lot of noise on racetracks across the United States and abroad. The car looks so great that we wish Ford would come out with a street version and bring back the "R" moniker that has been missing since 2000. We can see ourselves cruising around in a Shelby GT500-R with a carbon-fiber front splitter and sweet-looking wheels. For more information: www.fordracingparts.com.

John Gullett had his record-setting Pro 5.0 Mustang on the property. The tube-chassis Mustang rolls down the quarter-mile with a sick, twin-turbocharged engine from Al Moody Racing Engines. The small-block Ford engine wears a pair of Yates heads and runs two 88mm turbochargers from Turbonetics. Gullett throws the gears in a five-speed Lenco transmission. Dan Parker is responsible for converting the chassis from an IHRA Pro Stocker to a low-6-second Pro 5.0 car. Best time to date has been 6.36 at 226 mph. Gullett has a new Escort that is scheduled to run in the NHRA Pro Modified ranks with a big-block and larger turbos. Expected times are in the low 6s or maybe even the high 5-second zone.

The heat is coming on strong from the LS-series crowd, and more cubes from your modular engine is a sure way to stay ahead of the competition. Livernois Motorsports has a variety of rotating assemblies, and this particular crank, rod, and piston combo is a stroker kit for 4.6L engines. The crankshaft is a forged unit, and the rods come from Manley. The pistons are manufactured by Mahle and built to Livernois' specs. Kits are available for Two-Valve, Three-Valve, and Four-Valve engines. For more information: www.livernoismotorsports.com.

As expected, BBK displayed many new products, mostly for '05-up Mustangs. One interesting item was a throttle body that didn't require computer tuning. A shiny, new intake manifold cover was also on display. BBK included an assortment of shorty and long-tube headers for '05-'07 Stangs. The headers are available in various sizes and coatings. For more information: www.bbkperformance.com.

John Nobile elected to have his '07 Mustang GT's first public appearance at PRI. The car was built to compete in IHRA Pro Stock, where Nobile won the championship in 2005. It has an 814ci engine from Jon Kaase Racing Engines, and RJ Race Cars built the new ride. Nobile had his low-six-second warrior in the Ram Clutches booth. For more information: www.ramclutches.com.
