New Products From Raybestos Powertrain, BDS Milwaukee Tool
One-Piece Carbide Hole Cutters
Milwaukee Tool added to its lineup of metal cutting solutions with the new Milwaukee One-Piece Carbide Hole Cutters. Featuring a one-piece solid design, these Carbide Cutters promote stable and accurate drilling and provide added durability and dependability cut after cut.
The One-Piece Carbide Hole Cutters are designed with carbide for longer life and smooth cuts in stainless steel and other hard metals. The carbide teeth provide increased life and heat resistance keeping bits cool throughout operation. These new cutters have a 3-flat shank, optimizing each cutter for use in drill/drivers and making them perfect for fast, mobile cutting applications. The new cutters will be available in sizes ranging from 3/4-in. to 4-1/2-in. and will be sold individually and in 4-piece or 8-piece kits.
Atomic 2 Master Kits
The new redesigned Atomic 2 EFI system now features an 865 CFM throttle body with integrated ECU, full-color touch screen, 4-wire hookup, and several easy-to-use new features.
The new Master Kits include a complete fuel system: an external fuel pressure regulator pre-set to 58.5 PSI, 20 feet of 3/8-in. EFI-rated fuel hose, fuel pump, filters, all necessary hardware and a bulkhead fitting to return fuel into the fuel tank.
Trailline Tube Doors for Wrangler JK, JL and Gladiator JT
Go Rhino’s Trailline Tube Doors for the Jeep Wrangler JK, Wrangler JL and Gladiator JT removes that final barrier to the total, immersive outdoor experience while offering a stylish alternative to factory doors at an affordable price point.
Manufactured from 2-in.-diameter steel tubes fully welded onto 16-gage steel plates, these doors are designed for both utility and ease of installation. The easy-grip ball latch handle double-clicks (easy close vs hard close). Adjustable rubber plungers balance the door to the frame to eliminate vibration and rattling when closed, and adjustable limit straps allow the doors to be opened safely.
The cast-steel hinges are application-specific to the JK or JL/JT and utilize each model’s unique factory hinge pin and the factory nuts. The steel hinges are bolted all the way through (no weld nuts) which allows for precise alignment during installation and ensures the doors closely follow the vehicle’s body lines and frame.
Classic Go Rhino hex-pattern cut outs raise the style level up several notches and the front doors feature a striking 6-in. adjustable mirror. All tube door frames are available in textured black powder coat with matching black hardware.
API CK-4 Premium Heavy-Duty SAE 10W-30 Diesel Engine Oil
Champion Brands recently launched API CK-4 Premium Heavy-Duty 10W-30 Diesel Engine Oil (Part# 4154N), which is designed to provide robust performance for the next generation of heavy-duty engines. The American Petroleum Institute (API) a few years ago launched new diesel specifications.
API CK-4 effectively replaces API CJ-4 and is backward compatible with most diesel applications where currently an API CJ-4 oil may have been recommended. It requires more from the oils in terms of shear stability, oxidation resistance and aeration control than its predecessor.
Champion API CK-4 Premium Heavy-Duty SAE 10W30 Diesel Engine Oil controls oxidation, aeration, corrosive acids, sludge and varnish precursors which allow for extended drains and minimized wear even under the most extreme conditions.

Chevrolet 2K Piston Series
Diamond's highly regarded “2K” series of shelf-stock forged aluminum pistons for robust 2,000-hp power-adder builds has been expanded to include the LT2K model to compliment Chevrolet Gen V LT1/LT4 cylinder heads.
Forged from 2618 aluminum alloy, the LT2K pistons incorporate special inboard webbing to provide additional structural support for turbocharged supercharged or nitro applications. The crowns are 3D milled for a perfect finish and the underside machined to remove any unnecessary weight. The pistons feature lateral gas ports to enhance ring sealing and come with a 1.5 x 1.5 x 3.0 mm Total Seal piston ring package.
Other important attributes include a moly skirt coating to reduce friction, extra-strong Trend H13 tool steel wrist pins and enhanced pin oiling. Diamond LT2K pistons are offered in a variety of bore sizes, compression heights and piston crown configurations.
Turbo Tuff Tai-Beam Rod For Highly-Boosted/Nitrous Oxide Sport Compacts
Manley Performance has expanded the availability of its highly-acclaimed Turbo Tuff Tri-Beam forged steel connecting rods for highly-boosted or nitrous oxide-fed Sport Compact applications. The exclusive “Tri-Beam” configuration is a hybrid incorporating both I-beam and H-beam features.
Based on forgings of 4340 aircraft quality vacuum degassed steel or 300M alloy, the I-beam is undercut so it has ribs that resemble a shallow “H.” The ribs continue around the pin end to reinforce it and maintain pin bore roundness. Similarly, the caps are ribbed to reinforce the big end and ensure housing roundness.
Other attributes include large radius cap corners with a shallow bolt spot-face to improve fatigue strength and pin holes at the 10:00 and 2:00 position on the small end to improve wrist pin lubrication. They are shot-peened to MIL spec and magnafluxed, then equipped with special high strength ARP rod bolts; either the 220,000 psi rated ARP2000 models or 260,000 psi Custom Age 625+ bolts.
Tri-Beam rods are conservatively rated at 1,000 flywheel HP (4340) or 1,400 HP (300M) for 4-cylinder engines and increase for additional cylinders. They are now available for more than 30 engine types, including Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Renault, Subaru and Toyota applications.
