Hot New Products available and more coming soon  October 19, 2009

As the cold weather moves in to North East Ohio we are hard at work bringing some new products to market for our beloved Pontiacs.  This month we are able to introduce the new KRE North Wind intake manifold.  We will be working on the website in the coming weeks to provide some good detail on the intake and what we have found in some of our initial testing. 
As you know, we used this intake on the CF-71 Freedom Bird 440 and we were very pleased with the results.  We also liked the fact that we did not have to grind the runners in order to get our bolts started like we do on other aftermarket intakes.  See more below....
We should have more new parts and info releases very soon.

Here is a shot of us installing the new KRE North Wind intake on the CF-71 Freedom Bird 440.  Notice our teflon 4150 open carb gasket!  It was nice to see that we have a low rise intake manifold design that really works!  Another plus was the CNC port match that was performed by KRE.... matched up VERY well with their 310 CNC port and the TIP-120230 intake gaskets.  Quite a time saver!
