1. Engine Electronics
With ’80s muscle cars and trucks showing up more in the hot rod world there are bound to be a few false readings and values from spent sensors causing issues with a stock fuel management system. Duralast offers a vast number of drivetrain sensors, solenoids, and switches that provide a direct plug-in fit and are to OE specifications. From mass airflow to temperature sensors, crank, or cam position to knock sensors, Duralast has your engine management replacement sensors ready! Plus, every sensor is built to meet or exceed the OE design so you can be assured that each new sensor will function with the OEM (or aftermarket) fuel management system. In addition to sensors, Duralast also offers a full line of vehicle electronics parts to complete the job as well as many other OE and better-quality replacement parts.

2. Digital Climate Controls
The DCC-4000 plugs directly into Vintage Air Gen IV A/C systems, offering the user full climate-control functionality. Select your preferred temperature and the DCC-4000 takes it from there, varying fan speed and cooling needs to hold this comfortable level. Available with a chrome or black housing finish, the display color theme is user-configurable, as is the orientation of horizontal or vertical. If using the popular HDX or RTX Series of instrumentation from Dakota Digital, all color themes and brightness levels automatically sync for a fully integrated package.

3. The Vintage Touch
Lokar Performance Products has a line of throttle and kickdown cables as well as plug wires that will appeal to hot rodders looking for that final nostalgic detail. Using their proven design, Lokar now offers cables and wires in a variety of colors derived from an outer covering of woven cotton strands that harken back to the vintage era of hot rodding. To protect the cotton, each cable is clearcoated for years of maintenance-free performance.

These new Vintage Series cables feature an extruded PTFE inner lining for smooth operation and will adapt to most factory and aftermarket throttle assemblies. Just like every Lokar product, each cable is made in the USA and is backed by a lifetime warranty.
