Holley Performance Products

Hooker Blackheart Mustang Giveaway!



A lot of our customer and fan base has the notion that Holley is a little biased towards GM products, especially when it comes to late model stuff. Recently, we got our hands on a 2015 Mustang GT to use for research and development. Since then, we have installed a complete Hooker Blackheart exhaust on it, in addition to other goodies from DiabloSport, Eibach, and soon to be added NOS nitrous system. We have taken it on the Hot Rod Power Tour, displayed it at the Holley NHRA Hot Rod Reunion, and this weekend you can catch it at the Goodguys PPG Nationals in Columbus, OH on July 10-12. In its time with us, we have quickly grown to love this awesome rendition of the Ford pony car! But as the old saying goes, "If you love something, set it free." We will be setting this iconic pony car free, for free! Click the picture above, or RIGHT HERE, to enter to win the Hooker Blackheart Mustang! In the mean time, you may see it at some other events we will be attending this year.
  • (July 9-12) NHRA Route 66 Nationals - Joliet, IL
  • (July 10-12) Goodguys 18th PPG Nat'ls - Columbus, OH
  • (July 17-19) Jegs Summer Door Car Shootout - West Frankfort, IL

Weiand Fabricated Oil Pan Kits for '58-02 SBC

You remember the old days… when gassers ruled the strip in the 50’s, 60’s, and early 70’s! They were nose up with speed parts easily seen underneath. Weiand aluminum oil pans helped them get down the strip with increased capacity and fins to keep them cool! Times and styles have changed, but Weiand is back and proud to announce the release of fabricated oil pan kits for 1958-2002 Small Block Chevy applications!

Holley's Employee Rides - Tim Grillot's '78 Ford Fairmont Futura

While a 1978 Ford Fairmont Futura may not immediately elicit the response of some more recognizable cars,  the Fairmont belonging to Holley's Exhaust Business Unit Manager certainly packs more than meets the eye. Underneath the plain-jane body and malaise-era paint lies a very auspicious drivetrain that creates one of the most dangerous sleepers you will ever see at a drag strip.

This humble looking car has an equally humble history. Grillot says that the car was actually an impulse buy. It was such an impulse that he borrowed money from strangers to purchase the car. You might think that he had a vision for the car, but you would be mistaken. Tim just "thought the car was cool." The rest was just details.

The car came into Tim's possession with the factory-installed 302 cubic inch small block and automatic transmission still intact. It only showed about 80,000 miles on the odometer and had a very well cared for interior. Tim has managed to keep that interior intact while preparing the car for Hot Rod Drag Week's Small-Block Power Adder Class. In place of the 302 now sits an iron block DOHC 4.6L powerplant from a 2003 Terminator Cobra.

As you may expect, there is a plethora of Holley parts in the mix. A Dominator ECU controls all of the fueling and ignition parameters of the engine and it is also tasked with controlling the boost produced by the Precision turbo. Fuel is delivered by a Holley 12-1600 pump through Earl's lines all the way up front and into the Holley 120 lb/hr injectors. Tim also took advantage of the Dominator's ability to control GM drive-by-wire throttle bodies as all air enters the engine through a 90 mm GM DBW throttle body. A Holley Digital Dash allows him to monitor every aspect of the tuneup from the driver's seat.

Be sure to check out our full blog post on Tim's car to see how he has transformed this unassuming Fairmont into a 9-second sleeper!
