C5 LGM Longtube Header Install
The headers are a full 32” True Long Tube header that has been dubbed, "The most powerful C5 header on the Planet”! This header includes a complete header with a 3/8” flange and incorporates a “Race Style Merge Collector”, to a full 3” X pipe, and continues in 3” right up to the original 2 bolt muffler flanges. This makes this a full bolt on application that requires NO cutting or welding, and leaves the factory system completely intact incase you ever want to easily put the car back to stock. (C5) More...

LS1 to LS6 PCV conversion
So many LS1's have oil consumption issues and GM took a stab at fixing it on the LS6. In this article I show you how to convert your LS1 over to the newer LS6 style PCV system. This will require cutting away a small part of your engine block, however, it sounds a lot scarier than it actually is. This mod can be done for about $65 in parts. (F-Body & C5) More...

Infopic: The LS1 "magnet trick"
If you are installing a camshaft into your LS1/LS6 and you aren't removing the heads, you can either take your chances and hope the lifter retainers hold the lifter up and keep it from falling, or you can buy 16 retractable pen magnets with the pocket clip on them. You bend out the pocket clip, reach in with the magnet until it grabs hold of the lifter, then you extend the pen magnet until you have JUST enough extension to let the pocket clip hold onto the head. You need to keep it under tension, loose pen magnets won't do you much good.
