Eaton has introduced a new automotive aftermarket performance ring and pinion product line that provides vehicle enthusiasts the opportunity to choose from a variety of options and configurations to increase vehicle performance and improve horsepower.
The gear sets come in two varieties – street and competition – and can be ordered with an optional isotropic Super Finish process, which coats the gears with a highly polished surface engineered to reduce friction, improve wear resistance, increase oil retention and eliminate the need for break-in. The reduction in friction can increase horsepower from 3 to 5 percent, according to Eaton.
“These new ring and pinion sets from Eaton are ideal for the performance enthusiast. Whether for street applications or competing on the track, these sets pair great with Eaton’s broad portfolio of performance differentials,” said Tim Bauer, vice president, Aftermarket, Vehicle Group, North America. “Eaton has a long history of providing quality automotive performance differentials for aftermarket enthusiasts, and these new ring and pinion sets are designed to continue that tradition and deliver on the expectation of quality, reliability and enhanced vehicle performance.”
Eaton Performance ring and pinion gear sets are available in a wide range of axle ratios for Chrysler, Dana, Ford and General Motors axles.
