E-Z Living

Fuel Air Spark Technolgy’s (FAST) second-generation EZ-EFI is the newest of the company’s electronic-fuel-injection systems for classic Pontiacs. It features an eight-injector, die-cast throttle body, which supports up to 1,200 horsepower; ignition-timing control; and E98, E85, and E15 ethanol-blend-fuels compatibility. Other features include an improved inlet, which allows the throttle body to flow more air than the first generation EZ- EFI; a new secondary shaft throttle-stop adjustment, which provides precise idle-airflow adjustment and balance; a proprietary fuel-pulse damper, which creates ultra-precise fuel control; needle-bearing-supported shafts (instead of bushings); and an integrated fuel-rail design with crossover for tighter packaging. According to the manufacturer, “Setup includes the market’s fewest connection wires, including a new high-quality wiring harness and a sleek mesh-type loom.” A square-bore intake manifold or square-bore to spread-bore adapter is required. The price has not been announced. Fuel Air Spark Technology (FAST); (877) 334-8355; www.fuelairspark.com


Gauge Rage

Ames Performance Engineering ’65-’67 GTO Rally gauge clusters restoration kits feature stamped-steel housings and faceplates with screen-printed accents just like the originals. Behind the classic-looking gauge faces, however, you’ll find state-of-the-art stepper motors, which precisely control the needle movements on the tachometer, water temperature, oil pressure, and fuel-level gauges. This kit requires you to reuse your original speedometer head and needle, turn signal, headlight tubes, and gauge surround; ’65 to ’67 GTOs, LeMans, and Tempests not originally equipped with Rally gauges must use an adapter harness (sold separately). The price is $349. Ames Performance; (800) 421-2637; www.amesperf.com


Keep the Change

Hawks Third Generation now offers correct-reproduction ashtray lids for ’97-’02 Trans Ams and Firebirds. (“This was a factory original part, which was prone to breaking,” company owner Bruce Hawkins says.) They’re made from injection-molded plastic, just like the originals. Choose from Ebony or Graphite, and be sure to specify whether you have a manual- or automatic-trans console, as the parts numbers are different. The price is $24.95.
