The love of cars and the passion to go faster is in our blood, no matter where we live. The UAZ 469 is popular platform for Europeans to modify for rally racing. When this engine is modified one of the week links in the engine design is the aluminum pushrod. In an over rev situation these pushrods can bend causing power to be lost. In some cases it can throw a pushrod out of rocker adjuster. The aluminum tube and steel insert was not designed for this type of rpm.
We have designed and built a Chrome Moly tube pushrod with steel tips. We have duplicated the metric radius on the both the ball end and the cup end to make these a direct replacement. This upgrade will give stability to the valvetrain of any UAZ 469. In addition we have rally race cam profile that will give the engine an extra 30#/ft of torque and 20HP over the stock OEM cam. Customer must supply cam core.
From the days of simple mechanical injection to today’s highly technical electronic fuel systems 1 thing still remains the same. The camshaft is the brain of the engine. Without it nothing works, with the wrong one she won’t make power, with right one….well your competition doesn’t know because all they see is your black smoke ahead of them.
I finally got around to getting my Impala up and running. It really runs good. Need to map some on it, but it has never run this good. It runs almost the same ET as the old cam did with a 250HP shot of nitrous. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Srj_eXdhYgM
