New Hypertech Power Programmer Covers 2004 GM Trucks and SUVs With A Single Part Number - 50-state street legal under CARB Executive Orders D-260-12
(4-13-2004) – The truck market is booming, and Hypertech has released Power Programmer™ #30022 for 2004 GM trucks and SUVs. This single part number covers the entire line of GM vehicles powered by 4.8/5.3/6.0 and 8.1-liter V8 engines including the Hummer H2.
Hypertech’s exclusive Power Tuning program is the fastest and easiest way for a truck or SUV owner to improve vehicle performance. The dyno-developed and road-tested fuel and ignition tuning software contained in the Power Programmer produces gains of up to 22 horsepower and 29 ft.-lbs. of torque (depending on application) at the touch of a button. The Power Programmer gives truck and SUV owners the power to reprogram the onboard computer to match their specific needs and driving styles. That’s why Hypertech Power Tuning is the first and most important upgrade that an enthusiast can install on a new vehicle.
The Power Programmer for 2004 GM trucks and SUVs contains Hypertech’s exclusive “Dual Fuel” calibrations for both regular and premium gas. Hypertech Power Tuning for regular grade fuel is substantially more powerful than stock tuning with either regular or premium fuel, giving drivers increased power without the additional cost of premium gas. In most engines operating at a compression ratio less than 9.0:1, regular fuel with optimized tuning makes just as much power as premium fuel with optimized tuning. But in vehicles with higher compression ratios you may choose to download the Power Tuning program for premium fuel in situations that demand maximum power for passing, towing and off-roading – the Power Programmer contains both programs.
Hypertech’s Power Programmer is a powerful self-contained automotive computer that allows GM, Dodge or Ford owners to customize their vehicle’s onboard computer to work properly with aftermarket accessories. The rpm limiter can be adjusted in precise 100 rpm increments to extend the engine’s operating range for more pulling power and faster acceleration. The top speed limiter can be raised to match the speed rating of factory-approved high-performance tires. The powerful Power Programmer can also customize automatic transmission shift points and firmness for quicker acceleration and extended transmission life. Truck enthusiasts who have installed non-stock tires or rearend gears can use the Power Programmer to properly adjust part-throttle shifting and to correct the speedometer and odometer readings (as required by law).
The Power Programmer has the ability to read and clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) stored in the vehicle’s onboard computer. This feature allows the owner to view detailed information on the vehicle’s operation without purchasing expensive diagnostic computers or scanners used by dealership technicians.
Hypertech Power Tuning can be installed in minutes through the vehicle’s underdash diagnostic connector without tools or knowledge of computers. The Power Programmer downloads and stores the stock tuning, which can be restored at any time. The Power Programmer is emission legal (approved or pending in 50 states) and does not void the factory warranty.

Rechargeable Snap-on Spotlight Provides Brilliant Beam For Auto Technicians and Car Lovers CTB-Series Battery Pack and Halogen Bulb Offers 1,000,000 Candle Power
(3-11-2004) - Whether it's searching for a wrench that's fallen in the service bay, working under a vehicle's hood at the crack of dawn, or lighting up a dark garage on an overcast day, the new Night Spot Halogen Rechargeable Spotlight (CTL3918) from Snap-on Tools Company helps users illuminate just about any job at hand. The spotlight shines with features including cordless convenience, versatile positioning options and an ultra-bright halogen beam.
Using a 55-watt halogen bulb, the Snap-on® Night Spot offers light bearers a hand-held spotlight with a beam as bright as 1,000,000 candles. The light features a "soft start," or gradual build to full brightness, which sustains the life of its internal electronics. A built-in dimmer switch located on the back of the lamp head allows users to raise or lower the intensity of the beam, and conserve battery power. When the light's temperature becomes too hot, the dimmer
automatically activates to lower the beam intensity and prevent the unit from overheating.
A range of rechargeable batteries including the 9.6-, 12-, 14.4- and 18-volt CTB-Series Packs provide power for the spotlight and allow users the freedom to move anywhere. Average battery run times range between 10 and 34 minutes, depending on which battery pack is used and the beam intensity that is selected. All battery packs are quickly rechargeable with the Snap-on® Versavolt (CTC318) battery charger. Battery packs and chargers are sold separately and available immediately from Snap-on Tools.
The Snap-on Night Spot is housed in an impact-resistant and temperature-enduring polymer external shell, which is designed for durability and long life. A front-fixed metallic lens guard prevents damage to the bulb and protects users' hands from heat exposure. A forward facing trigger guard prevents accidental activation or deactivation of the unit. The light is also equipped with a spare halogen bulb, which is secured by a clip inside the lamp.
With two hanging hooks on the back of the unit, the Snap-on Night Spot spotlight can be hung and positioned in a number of different angles, freeing up users hands. The battery packs provide a stable base for the light to stand upright. The lamp can also be positioned on its back to point upwards.
Technicians and car lovers can find more about the Night Spot Halogen Rechargeable Spotlight (CTL3918) and Versavolt (CTC318) battery charger by contacting their local Snap-on representative, by visiting http://www.snapon.com.
(3-10-2004) - Dust, mud and water can wreak havoc on a bike, causing parts to wear out prematurely. Sadly, some lubricants only compound the problem, turning that bike into a messy, gooey dirt magnet.
Fortunately, Royal Purple’s Max-Chain is a lubricant of a different color. The advanced high-performance synthetic lubricant provides excellent protection for chains, open gears and exposed metal surfaces—even in dusty or wet, acidic environments.
Max-Chain forms an extremely durable, long-lasting film, so you don’t have to apply it frequently. The non-tacky film does not collect dust or other airborne contaminants, and it protects against abrasive wear.
Because Max-Chain provides excellent rust and corrosion protection in all situations, including salt spray and acidic environments, it also works beautifully for preserving parts during extended storage. The tenacious, EP lubricating film of Max-Chain also protects heavily loaded surfaces.
Max-Chain is a unique, thixotrophic lubricant blended with a solvent carrier. It can be applied easily; just spray or brush it on. It’s environmentally responsible, too: Max-Chain® biodegrades to leave only small quantities of calcium carbonate and calcium sulfate, both of which are naturally occurring, pure minerals.
(3-9-2004) - Performance Distributors’ new “Instant Timing Knob” Racing D.U.I. is a real technological breakthrough! You can now actually change your timing with the simple turn of the Instant Timing Knob. You don’t have to loosen and re-tighten your distributor hold-down clamp. Simply turn the knob to advance or retard your timing. ½ Revolution equals one degree of timing and one full revolution equals two degrees of timing.
No timing light required. Plus, crew chiefs can now avoid those wicked hand burns that occur so often when rotating a distributor in a hot race engine. In addition to the accuracy of the Instant Timing Knob, each D.U.I. distributor’s mechanical advance is calibrated on a distributor machine throughout the entire rpm range. This distributor helps you tremendously when you’re making a quick pit stop. Helps you hook-up better when the track is slick or when you’re trying to put that extra horsepower to the ground. Also very useful on the dyno.

(2-28-2004) - Earl’s Performance Products has introduced a brake line kit for the 2003 Non-Brembo and Brembo equipped Nissan 350Z’s, P/N 28C180ERL that delivers improved brake pedal feel, quicker braking response and shorter braking distances.
Earl’s HYPERFIRM® brake lines boast many features that no other brake line kits can duplicate. HYPERFIRM brake lines are made from extruded Teflon™ hose covered with a braided stainless steel sheath; the same design that has been used in racing for years.
The braided stainless steel sheath over the Teflon hose resists line “swell” and gives unmatched abrasion protection. By resisting line swell, HYPERFIRM brake lines provide much better brake pedal feel/firmness, reduce ABS pedal “thump”, and reduce the time for the effective pressure to reach the brakes and start to slow the vehicle. Testing has shown that braking distances can be shortened by up to 10 percent by changing to HYPERFIRM brake lines.
The braided stainless steel/Teflon HYPERFIRM brake line design is supplemented by Earl’s patented “Whip-Stop Dampner”, (where required) which prevents fraying; a feature that allows this line to meet all D.O.T., T.U.V. and J.W.A. standards for street use – the only Teflon hose to meet these extremely rigid international requirements.

(2-18-2004) – Once again leading the pack, Edelbrock is now producing performance products for Chrysler Magnum V8s, including heads and a manifold.
Performer RPM Chrysler Magnum Heads for 1992 & later 5.2L (318 c.i.d.) and 1993 & later 5.9L (360 c.i.d.) Chrysler Magnum V8s offer substantial performance improvements for street/strip and off-road performance use and are an easy bolt-on upgrade, right out of the box. The heads feature 180cc intake ports and 75cc exhaust ports with 58cc combustion chambers, yielding a slight increase in compression over the factory heads. They are available bare (#61779) or complete and assembled with high quality components like stainless steel 2.02” intake and 1.60” exhaust valves, seals, springs and retainers (#61779). These heads offer more flow than stock and will accept either adjustable aftermarket rocker arms or stock Magnum valve train parts. All Edelbrock heads are sold individually.
Stock Magnum intake and exhaust port locations make these heads an ideal choice for use with Edelbrock’s new RPM Air-Gap manifold. This new manifold, #7577, allows the use of a carburetor on these originally fuel-injected engines, making them the perfect upgrade for early muscle cars and street rods. The dual-plane manifold design incorporates the same race-winning technology that’s been used on Edelbrock Victor Series competition intakes for years, offering outstanding performance in the 1,500 to 6,500 rpm range. The air-gap design features an open air space that separates the runners from the hot engine oil resulting in a cooler, denser charge for more power.

(2-16-2004) – Hypertech’s new Power Programmer™ #30021 maximizes the performance of 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engines in 2001-2004 GM vehicles, producing impressive gains of up to 92 horsepower and 151 ft.-lbs. of torque over stock. Hypertech’s exclusive three-stage Power Tuning™ program delivers these extraordinary performance improvements without even opening the hood!
Duramax owners can safely choose one of three different levels of performance. Each level has been developed to allow sustained operation while towing the maximum allowable gross combined weight rated suggested by the factory. Stage 3 Power Tuning (90+ horsepower gain) delivers best performance under virtually all driving conditions. Stage 2 (plus 70 hp) is optimized for continuous high engine loads such as towing a trailer up a steep grade, while Stage 1 (50 hp gain) is calibrated to safeguard the engine under the most extreme operating conditions of heat and load.
The Power Programmer for Duramax diesels also allows truck enthusiasts who have installed non-stock tires from 24 to 38 inches in diameter to correct the speedometer and odometer readings (as required by law).
Hypertech’s optimized Power Tuning calibrations for fuel, spark and turbocharger boost were developed on computerized dynamometers and road tested for thousands of miles on the highway. Hypertech Power Tuning can be installed in minutes – without tools or knowledge of computers. Plug the Power Programmer into the underdash diagnostic port, answer a few simple “Yes/No” questions, and the Power Programmer does the rest in less time than it takes to drink a cup of coffee. The Power Programmer downloads and stores the stock tuning, which can be restored at any time.
The Power Programmer has the ability to read and clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) stored in the vehicle’s onboard computer. This feature allows the owner to view detailed information on the vehicle’s operation without purchasing expensive diagnostic computers or scanners used by dealership technicians.
Hypertech Power Programmers are available for most Dodge, Ford and GM vehicles.

(2-5-2004) - Ford's Mustang Cobra becomes an even more potent performance car with Hypertech Power Tuning. Hypertech's new Power Programmer™ #41027 for 2003 Cobras contains three dyno-developed and road-tested Power Tuning programs that boost the output of Ford's supercharged V8 by up to 88 horsepower and 105 ft.-lbs. of torque (depending on application).
Hypertech engineers worked with Ford performance enthusiasts to develop all-new Power Tuning programs for the Cobra. Extensive testing revealed that a single Power Tuning program could not maximize the performance of the supercharged Mustang. That's because aftermarket overdrive pulleys for the factory-installed supercharger are a popular modification made by Cobra owners. Hypertech's research and development team knew that is was essential to match the optimized fuel and spark curves to the increased airflow and higher manifold pressure produced by aftermarket supercharger pulleys.
Hypertech engineers developed three distinct Power Tuning programs for the Cobra engine with a stock 3.25-inch pulley (approximately 8.5 psi boost), an aftermarket 3.0-inch pulley (approximately 12.0 psi boost) and an aftermarket 2.8-inch pulley (approximately 14.0 psi). These three different calibrations, developed exclusively by Hypertech, match the fuel flow and ignition timing to the engine's operating conditions in both stock and modified form.
The Power Programmer for 2003 Cobras contains the software for all three Power Tuning programs. This allows a Cobra driver to select the Power Tuning program that perfectly matches the supercharger pulley to maximize power while preventing harmful detonation. If the pulley diameter is subsequently changed, the Power Programmer can easily reprogram the onboard computer to accommodate the new pulley diameter.
Hypertech's Power Programmer is a self-contained automotive computer that gives Cobra owners the power to change other operating parameters. For example, the engine rpm limiter can be adjusted in precise 100 rpm increments to extend the engine's operating range for faster acceleration. The top speed limiter can be raised to match the speed rating of factory-approved high-performance tires. The on/off temperature of the electric cooling fans can be adjusted for 160-degree and 180-degree thermostat to increase power and prevent engine-damaging detonation. Cobra enthusiasts who have installed non-stock tires or rearend gears with ratios from 2.73:1 to 4.56:1 can use the Power Programmer to correct the speedometer and odometer readings (as required by law). Also, the Power Programmer has the ability to read and clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) stored in the vehicle's onboard computer. This feature allows the owner to view detailed information on the vehicle's operation without purchasing expensive diagnostic computers or scanners used by dealership technicians.
Hypertech Power Tuning can be installed in minutes through the vehicle's diagnostic connector without tools or knowledge of computers. The Power Programmer downloads and stores the stock tuning, which can be restored at any time. The Power Programmer is emission legal (approved or pending in 50 states) and does not void the factory warranty.

(2-4-2004) - Nearly every week during the racing season, crew chiefs and their teams depend on tool storage wagons to transport, organize and store their most prized possessions-the tools and equipment used to service high-performance racecars. With the introduction of the Snap-on® Tool Wagon (KRLP7002A), the same type of tough, mobile and reliable tool storage units made for professional pit crews at the racetrack are now available for technicians and racing fans to use in the garage.
The Snap-on Tool Wagon holds and totes a large assortment of tools, equipment and accessories, offering 90,000 cubic inches of storage space. The roll cab features 12 drawers,
including a larger top drawer that holds tall sockets, wrenches and oversized tools. A variety of
shelves, compartments and other storage options, including a screwdriver rack, 14- and 30-inch
sliding trays, 12-inch can holder and 10-inch tote tray, are included with the unit.
Opening the unit's front riser door provides access to a stainless steel workbench that offers
a brilliant, smooth and enduring work surface. The opened door is supported by gas springs and a two-point lock-rod system that provides security and prevents the door from slamming closed.
Two side lockers each contain two drawers and adjustable shelves that can hold larger accessories and items that stand upright.
The Snap-on Tool Wagon provides a full range of mobility for transporting tools. An
automotive anti-scrub steering system makes turning tight corners easy and increases
maneuvering in confined spaces with a 150-inch outside turning radius. A twin cam disc brake
system stops the unit from moving by locking the wheels in place. Lowering a smooth-action
brake lever allows the wheels to move and the wagon to roll freely and raising the lever applies
the brakes and brings the unit to a halt.
The unit also features eight-inch chrome wheels, 16-inch pneumatic tires and dress plate
fenders similar to the ones used at professional racetracks. A heavy-duty 12 gauge steel platform and seven-gauge steel twin beam supports offer the unit additional strength.
The Snap-on Tool Wagon is available in five vibrant colors, including Snap-on® Red,
Royal Blue, Ultra-Yellow, Deep Cranberry and Gloss Black. The tool wagon also sports the same Snap-on Racing logo that is proudly worn by several professional racing drivers, teams and cars.
Optional accessories, including aluminum and rubber diamond plate toppers, jack stands,
magnetic cup holders, nylon covers, wrench racks, literature bins and a chrome rear bumper, are available for purchase to create a customized unit.
Automotive technicians and racing fans can find out more about the Snap-on Tool Wagon
(KRLP7002A) by contacting their local Snap-on representative, visiting http://www.snapon.com or calling toll free 877-SNAPON-2 (877-762-7662).
(2-4-2004) - The problem with most factory fuel tanks is that they were never designed to provide the fuel required by a high horsepower motor under hard acceleration. Most factory gas tank pickups are located in the front portion of the tank, allowing the fuel pump to ingest air during acceleration. This can cause a momentary loss of fuel pressure which can be enough to make you lose a race. You can eliminate this problem by installing one of Competition Engineering's Fuel Tank Sump Kits Part Nos. C4040 (3/8" NPT) or our NEW C4041 (1/2" NPT). By installing the kit in the lowest portion in the rear of the fuel tank, you can guarantee that your engine will receive consistent fuel pressure under the hardest acceleration. Each kit has been manufactured in-house from mild steel for ease of welding and has two pre-welded 3/8" or 1/2" NPT bungs to ensure adequate fuel flow. Installation instructions are included as well as a template for baffling of the tank. Fittings not included. Welding required.
