Hays Twister GM 6L80E Full Race Torque Converters

Holley announced the release of Hays Twister Full Race Torque Converters for GM 6L80E six-speed automatic transmissions. Designed specifically for blown, nitrous and turbocharged trans-brake applications, they're available in four different stall-speed ranges: 2400-2800, 2800-3200, 3200-3600 and 3600-4200.

The torque converters are internally welded (not brazed), which the company says provides longer life and greater consistency, and are also spray-welded, in select areas. Heavy-duty Torrington bearings and carefully selected stators with high-flow vents and channels promote cooling, and a custom-designed anti-balloon plate prevents converter swelling.

CleanLine Fuel Filters

MAHLE Aftermarket's new CleanLine fuel filters were designed by the company to lower maintenance costs for injection nozzles and fuel pumps. According to MAHLE, the spin-on filters offer exceptional water separation efficiency throughout their lifetime. The company also says that the dust retention capacity is also significantly higher than that of conventional filters.

From 2020, two variants of the new CleanLine filter will be available worldwide, with single- or two-stage separation. The single-stage variant filters dirt particles and water in one step. The two-stage variant filters in two separate steps: first the dirt and then the water via a water-repellent, synthetic fabric.
