Designed as plug-and-play, direct factory replacements, the kits reduce shifter throw by up to 40%. Precisely made with 6061 billet aluminum and a hardened steel lever shaft, the conversions are height-adjustable to fit driver preference. Replacement Radio Retro Mfg., Henderson, Nevada, introduces the RetroSound New York, a direct-fit replacement radio for 1974-2000 Mopar, 1982-2002 GM and 1979-1991 Ford vehicles that came equipped with a standard 1.5 DIN factory unit. The New York looks and fits like the original factory radio but includes modern technological features, including an Apple Made-For-iPod/iPhone built-in interface, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone calls and wireless audio streaming, 32,000-color customizable display and backlit buttons. Volkswagen Jetta GLI Springs H&R Special Springs, Bellingham, Washington, introduces progressive Sport Springs specifically designed for Volkswagen Jetta GLI models. The springs refine handling for a more dialed-in driving experience and improved ride comfort, lowering the vehicle approximately 1 inch in the front and rear. Reducing fender well gap and lowering the vehicle's center of gravity improves handling balance and the car's profile. The springs are 100% made in Germany. Camry Exhaust MagnaFlow, Oceanside, California, presents a new Cat-Back Exhaust System for 2018-'20 single- and dual-outlet Toyota Camry models, part of its popular Street Series line of products. The system replaces all components after the catalytic converter, creating dyno-proven performance gains and replacing the factory exhaust note with a signature sound. The systems are finished with a set of polished exhaust tips etched with the MagnaFlow logo. C10 Truck Suspension UMI Performance, Philipsburg, Pennsylvania, introduces a new line of Suspension Components for Chevrolet and GMC C10 truck models. Sold individually or as a kit, the truck parts offer a modern, lowered performance ride. The combination lowering spring and drop spindle combo brings the front end down 4.5 inches while the rear flip kit lowers 6 inches total. The suspension is controlled with improved rebound control, gas-charged monotube shocks. Sway and body roll are eliminated with increased-rate sway bars. PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS Gauge Link AutoMeter, Sycamore, Illinois, introduces DashLink II that displays the accuracy and precision of the company's gauges on a smartphone or tablet in real time. Advanced hardware and software provide instant feedback on how a vehicle is performing from an Apple iOS or Android-enabled device, all with easy OBD-II plug-and-play installation.
