    If you have an "Automotive Minded" person in you life, these gift suggestions should be considered.

    1. Tire Air Change Kit. This kit comes with everything you need to change the air in your tires. This highly recommended but often overlooked maintenance item is much easier now. Remember to change your air every 3000 miles or twice a year. $25

    2. Blinker Fluid. You knew it existed but, WOW, is this stuff hard to find. 4oz bottle. $12

    3. Synthetic Blinker Fluid. Better yet! 4oz bottle. $24

    4. Light Bulb Filaments. Why throw away a perfectly good turn signal or stop light bulb when you can just install a new filament? Premium Filaments, made in the USA! $1 each.

    5. Manifold Heat. Yes, your exhaust manifold should be HOT. If it's not, you may need this item. Sold by the pound. $3.50

    6. Steering Wheel Gaskets. All SIZES available! Email for specific application. From $9.99

    7. Tie Rod Tensioner. Is your tie rod limp? Tension it with T-50! $14.99

    8. Alternator Batteries. (4 required, replace them all!) From $2.99

    9. Fan Belt Buckles. Specify brass or chrome. Gold available special order. $14.99

    10. Muffler Bearing Manual. Print version $59.95

    11. Muffler Bearing Manual. CD version $49.99

    12. Universal Muffler Bearing Tool Kit $105.59

    13. Muffler Bearing Hi Temp Synthetic Lube (the only kind we sell!) $40.24

    14. Muffler Bearings From $19.95

    15. Muffler Bearing Gasket Kits From $9.99

    16. Momentum (required for tackling some off road obstacles). Sold by the lb-ft/sec $0.50

    17. Microsoft Windows Eliminator. If your car or truck begins to run poorly, (long time to start, frequent crashes, etc.), it's computer, (ecm, ecu, black box, etc.), may have become infected with this nasty computer virus. This product will safely remove the virus. $199

    18. Mirror Image Flipper Film. Did you know that the image you see in your rear view mirrors are reversed! This is a manufacturing flaw that the auto companies have kept secret for years as the recall would cost BILLIONS! This film can be cut and placed over any mirror to correct the image. Now you'll be able to read signs in the rear view mirror! $5 per square ft.

    Yeah. But the only people I know are high performance freaks and those OEM thingys just dont excite them.
    These are are on my gift list for all my Hi PO buddys:
    "O" Pipe
    [​IMG]
    You've heard of the Y pipe.. the X pipe.. the H pipe.. nothing can touch the O pipe!!! It provides 100% backpressure feedback on ALL engines!! Torque increase and kuneutson valve float brings in much lower revs so you don't hurt your motor! Pipe shown is powdercoat black for car with DUAL EXHAUST. Not CARB Legal. Please specify Stainless or Powdercoat and also if you are using dual or single exhaust. 3" diameter.
    _________________________________________________________________
    -Cross Drilled Brake Lines-
    [​IMG]
    Want improved braking? Why just cross drill those rotors? Introducing KaleCo cross drilled brake lines! Improved airflow through lines provides superior brake cooling. Brake fluid is exposed to cool moving air, almost instantly reducing heat, and providing shorter stopping distances! All lines are made of quality latex. Brake lines come in: Black, Yellow, Red, or Blue. Please specify color when ordering!! Warning!! You must replace ALL brake lines at once as to prevent mismatched pressure feedbacks! You may mix colors.
    ________________________________________________________________
    -Radiator Insulation Bezel-
    [​IMG]
    The weakest part of your car is the likely the radiator. It is a simple matter of physics when we tell you this: Energy is lost through heat. Transmissions, as they lose more and more heat, begin to cause more loss of power. However, that's only a small part - The worst part is the radiator! All sorts of heat is lost through the radiator - in essence - losing the horsepower through heat! Not anymore!! KaleCo brings you the Radiator Insulation Bezel - Simply slip over your radiator and enjoy the power! KaleCo radiator insulation is made from only the finest asbestos, and is guaranteed to trap 90% more heat!

    Here comes Santa:D

    And if you have a Ricer on your gift list...................................
    -Piston Return Springs
    [​IMG]
    KaleCo has produced the highest quality piston return spring to date! High temperance material coated in a thick rubber sleeve resists engine temperatures up to 2500'f. KaleCo piston return springs FORCE the pistons back into the motor, no longer rely on gravity! This effectively increases your revs, horsepower, and peak torque! You must buy one return spring per piston. Rotary engines require some cutting of rubber sleeve. A Chevy 350 showed 15hp / 15ft-LB gains from this mod!:thumb: :thumb:

    Way back when Me and a friend of Mine told His Mom that that She needed new "piston return springs" in Her car that was having troubles. We were kind enough to explain to Her how they worked and that if She explained this to the shop manager at the dealer then they could find the problem a lot easier.:wink1: She "hunted" Us down the next day to chew Our a$$ for making Her look like an idiot at the dealer:D Damn that woman was pissed at Us for a good week.:haha: :haha:

    I have metric tires and of course the air change is way more expensive for them.
