For Nova owners looking to modernize their ’68-74 X-body (Nova, Ventura, Omega, Apollo) with an LS swap, Hedman Husler has developed headers, engine mounts, and transmission-specific crossmembers that ease the installation process, because they were developed to work together. The motor and transmission mount kits use sturdy, powdercoated steel mounting plates, and high-performance polyurethane pads. Husler offers these American-made swap-specific headers in a variety of tube diameters, lengths, and finishes to match your performance needs.
Forty-plus years of wear and tear on your coveted Chevelle has surely affected vital suspension bushings even if they have been replaced with OE rubber components. Now that we got you thinking about upgrading, consider Energy Suspension’s updated Chevelle body mount set, complete with zinc-coated sleeves and mounting hardware, making them even more impervious to the severe conditions encountered under your car. Paired with the proven performance of polyurethane, these mounts are soft enough for cruising, yet firm enough to handle lefties and righties. For ’68-72 Chevrolet Chevelle (except convertible) order PN 3.4170. (Add to part number “G” for Black and “R” for Red.)
Mopar guys have never been a large force in the cornering and handling area of hot rodding, but maybe that’s because they never had a steering box like this: Borgeson Universal is now producing a modern quick-ratio power steering conversion box for all ’62-79 Mopars. This Borgeson conversion box ($749) is a remanufactured modern power steering gearbox that has undergone extensive modifications to be a direct bolt-in for ’62-79 Mopars. The Borgeson conversion box will fit with zero modifications to the stock K-member and is a direct bolt-in to the factory mounting location with only minor steering column modifications. The Borgeson conversion box is a quick 14:1 ratio power steering box with only 3.5 turns lock-to-lock and a firm, modern feel. The conversion box is offered with either a 1⅛- or 1¼-inch sector shaft to fit the two available original pitman arms.
