The Granatelli Motor Sports 12V Electric Vacuum Pump Kit
1. Boost Vacuum … Electronically
The Granatelli Motor Sports 12V Electric Vacuum Pump Kit is an all-new design using forward-thinking technology not seen before in this segment. What does this mean? The Granatelli design utilizes a rotary vein–style pump with an enlarged diaphragm to ensure maximum suction while remaining nearly dead quiet and vibration free. Utilizing an MAVP (Manifold Absolute Vacuum/Pressure Sensor), it eliminates the need for old-school vacuum switches and relays. This configuration also guarantees an incredibly quick vacuum recovery time ensuring 17- to 23-inch Hg vacuum all the time. It comes in four standard configurations: bare (no outer shell), black, chrome, or gunmetal gray ABS plastic outer shell. They even offer custom color options for a nominal fee. These kits comes complete with 5 feet of ⅜-inch supporting vacuum hose, proper wiring harnesses for an easy install, and vibration dampeners, all while maintaining a common mounting hole configuration.

Line of Motul Classic Motor Oil formulas
5. Keep Classic Engines up to Snuff with Motul Classic Motor Oil
Motul took its 170 years of motor oil know-how and bottled it in the reformulated Classic Motor Oil line to provide even more protection for engines of a “certain age.” The additive blends are specifically suited to accommodate the tolerances and gasket materials of vintage engines to keep them running strong. Motul Classic Motor Oil formulas include: Classic Motor Oil, Classic 2100, Classic Eighties Motor Oil, and Classic Nineties Motor Oil. The Classic Motor Oil is a mineral-based 20W-50 weight oil made for engines fitted in vintage cars or bikes built after 1950. Ideal for use in classic car engines running looser engine tolerances, the oil has mid-level detergents to prevent carbon deposits, molybdenum to boost performance, and can also be used as a break-in oil. The semi-synthetic Classic 2100 15W-50 weight oil is made for naturally aspirated and turbocharged engines built after 1970. It contains more ZDDP to keep flat-tappet cams protected and offers better cold viscosity to reduce wear during startup. The synthetic base allows for stay-in-grade viscosity that keeps oil pressure constant and has modern detergents to prevent carbon deposits. Classic Eighties Motor Oil is formulated for use in vehicles with higher compression naturally aspirated, supercharged, and turbocharged engines. The semi-synthetic 10W-40 weight oil is high in ZDDP and molybdenum for superior antiwear protection and performance whether you’re running an original or rebuilt engine underhood. Classic Nineties Motor Oil is a mineral-based, semi-synthetic multigrade 10W-30 weight oil that works in ’90s-era engines and emission systems. It has low viscosity, sheer stability under pressure, and a balanced additive package with plenty of ZDDP and molybdenum. These additives work to protect your engine even during storage and extended periods of disuse.
