Be Elite

Edelbrock's new Elite II Series engine dress-up accessories are a new and modern take on a classic Edelbrock design. The original Elite Series accessories have been a staple in the Edelbrock performance catalog since 1985, and the new Elite II Series accessories are a streamlined modern design that pays homage to the original. They retain the classic raised fin look with gloss black accents between the fins. This new design provides a classic look that will make any engine stand out from the crowd.

The Elite II Series air cleaner (PN 4266) is 14 inches in diameter and includes a high-quality 3-inch pre-oiled and washable filter with the Edelbrock exclusive Pro-Charge clean strip for excellent filtration. Elite II Series valve covers are a heavy-gauge, die-cast aluminum construction that are finished off with a high-quality polished finish for a show-winning look. The tall profile valve covers are designed to clear most roller rockers and valvetrain components, while the low profile versions are designed to clear all air-conditioning, alternator brackets and aluminum rockers.

It's A Cinch

Those familiar with hauling vehicles on a trailer understand the problems that arise when the distance between the vehicle and the tie down fitting is too close for conventional tie-down methods. To solve this problem, Mac's Tie Downs has created the new Cinch Pack, a 10,000-pound capacity assembly that shortens to 2 feet in length.

With the Cinch Pack, you no longer have to worry about whether or not you'll be able to tightly and securely tie down your load when space is limited. Available in four colors—red, blue, black, and yellow—the Cinch Pack meets the high standards that customers have come to expect from Mac's. The Cinch Pack consists of four 2-inch x 6-foot Cinch Straps, four Strap Wraps for securing your tie downs when they aren't in use or wrapping up excess webbing, and comes in the Mac's signature duffle bag.
