While looks are important, but if it doesn’t perform it’s not worth being there

Everyone loves to see chrome inside of their engine bay. But the important thing to remember is not to sacrifice functionality just for the look the product. It has to be able to handle the needs your engine requires regardless of how it looks. The good news is for all of you LS engine owners out there is that Powermaster Performanceis now creating a vast arrangement of chrome alternators for LS engines.

Powermaster products are all made in the US, “We’re just a bunch of h0trodders ourselves, that enjoy making hot rod parts,” Said Brady Basner of Powermaster Performance. “We think of things that we want to put on our cars we are working on at home.”

The first thing you notice when you look at the new line of alternators is how they look amazing, “While looks are important, but if it doesn’t perform it’s not worth being there,” Basner explained. “We are doing chrome alternators, high amp alternators, one wire, and side post. Anyway you look at it, we can fit an alternator on a LS engine.”
