The Hedman Performance Group had a busy booth this year at the 2016 SEMA Show. Aside from the displays filled with awesome new parts, one of the biggest reasons for the popularity was the unveiling of the PCHRODS “50/50” Camaro built by Rob Phillips. We also debuted lots of new parts that help make your ride faster and perform better. Von Hot Rod joined in the fun as well this year, greeting fans and pinstriping items for them as well as helping with the giveaway of his two custom-built Hedman Hedders lamps.

CW Restoration Shop has a second vehicle it is bringing out to the 2013 SEMA Show – a 1957 Chevy Cameo pickup. This pickup hosts a number of upgrades from the Hedman Performance Group on its small block powerplant including a set of Hedman Hedders, Hamburger’s Performance Valve Covers, and a Trans Dapt dipstick. Emphasizing the smallest of details is what this truck is all about. Looking at the finish of the wood in the bed, the trim and gauges on the dash, and colored accenting throughout shows the kind of attention to detail that this world class builder put into this project.
This beautiful Cameo will be on display in the Griffin Thermal Products booth (#24935) of the SEMA Show in the Central Hall, so make sure you stop by and check it out. For more pictures of the build, check out the gallery below or head on over to CW Restoration Shop’s Facebook.
The second race of the National Muscle Car Association’s NMCA West series drew hundreds of racers and muscle car fans to the historic Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, CA. Always the favorite venue of the season, the weekend was packed with full-throttle racing action and more than a few upsets. The Hedman Hedders Nostalgia Street Car class was once again one of the largest classes of the event, with 41 cars making the grid for the start of elimination racing on Sunday morning. Though the field was packed with seasoned veterans like Mike Nordahl (who won 3 Wallys in a single event last year), Ron De Hoop, Steve Cox, and Frank Coscarelli, stiff competition and some very determined racers would see many of these icons fall.

Billet aluminum oil filter relocation kits mount anywhere and plumb easily thanks to -12AN fittings and 180-degrees of rotation.
Whittier, Calif. (Oct, 2012) –Take the biggest, most powerful engine you can find and make it fit into your car’s engine bay – that is the basis of hot rodding. However, doing that can create any number of clearance issues, especially around the location of the oil filter. Even with the factory engine, there are still instances when filters can be hard to reach. Oil filter relocation kits were developed for just this reason, although with all of the different engine and car combinations, not everyone could use the same filter bases. Thankfully, Hamburger’s Performance Products has made an adjustable filter base that gives you complete freedom to mount your filter virtually anywhere. Read the rest of this entry →
Once a year the Southern California classic, muscle car, and hot rod communities descend upon the Orange County Fairgrounds to attend the Cruisin’ for a Cure Charity Car Show. Benefitting the City of Hope Foundation and raising money to fund Prostate Cancer research, this car show is the largest charity classic/custom auto show in the world and had over 3,400 cars in attendance for 2012. But this car show is more than just a fundraiser; it is a place to celebrate the automotive lifestyle. To help embrace this lifestyle, the show has more than just the normal rows of parked cars. Weaving throughout the show grounds is a half-mile long “Cruisin’” route that allows owners to fire up their rides and take part in one of the staples of American car culture – cruising.

New CNC-machined two-piece timing cover for GM LS-Series Engines from Hamburger’s Performance looks fantastic and makes valvetrain adjustments a snap.
Over the past five years, the GM LS engine family has quickly become the hottest horsepower-per-dollar powerplant on the aftermarket, thanks to huge advances in airflow technology and a plentiful supply of LS1-LS9 engines. Drag racers, hot rodders and tuners know one of the easiest ways to make big LS power is through cam changes and valvetrain adjustment, a task that used to require removing pulleys and dropping the oil pan – until now. Hamburger’s Performance Products is proud to unveil a new precision-engineered billet timing cover that makes GM Gen III engine cam changes and adjustments a clean, easy job.
When most people think of keeping a motor at operating temp they think only of a radiator and keeping coolant in said radiator. Well, I recently spent some time with boys over at Deuces Wild Hot Rods in Fillmore, California, where we were playing around with ways to keep their truck alive on the road and racetrack. Their so-called shop truck has been testing the limits of the Ford’s stock 390 FE oiling system.
If you’re not familiar with the truck, it was featured in the October 2010 issue (“The Evil Twin”). Since then, the truck has been modified to compete in autocross and various road course events around Southern California and Arizona while still being roadworthy. Except for the exterior performance items, the motor has completely stock internals. Read the rest of this entry →
