K&N's Performance Gold Oil Filters are designed to remove harmful debris in your engine's oil. These street/off-road performance racing oil filters are available for most engines, with taller high-capacity race units available for some applications. K&N designed its filters with a 1-inch wrench nut for easy removal, drilled safety wire holes for racing, a resin-impregnated filter media providing maximum filtering surface, an anti-drainback valve that eliminates dry starts and prevents oil from draining back into the crankcase during engine shutdown, and an internally lubricated gasket providing a positive seal while allowing easy installation and removal of the filter.

Crane Cams'(r) Anti-Pump Up performance hydraulic lifter allows an engine to reach its maximum potential through much closer tolerances than original equipment. It also offers precise oil metering and control, and exclusive internal valving prevents hydraulic lifter pump up with performance camshaft profiles, even at up to 6,500-7,000 rpm. Crane engineered and manufactured these lifters for competition and high-performance street use where hydraulic lifters are required by class rules or by preference. A premium-quality pushrod seat-retaining clip permits precise, durable zero-lash adjustments. To help improve break-in, each lifter face is coated with a high-performance lubricant.
