NEW: 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...

LGM Wilwood C5 Front Brake Package
For C5 Corvette enthusiasts looking for more stopping power either at the track or on the street, Wilwood has the solution. In this install I'll put on a pair of of huge 6 piston Wilwood calipers and some nice 2 piece wilwood rotors from LGM on the front of a C5. Not only does it look amazing, it performs. (C5) More...

Meziere LS1 Electric Water Pump (F-Body Version)
For years talk of electric water pumps had been circulating through the LS1 community, and finally Meziere has delivered.

Did you know?
The LS6 PCV system pulls its vacuum from the valley cover under the intake manifold,whereas the LS1 PCV system pulls its vacuum from the valve covers. GM changed this on the LS6 in an attempt to reduce oil usage. Its effectiveness is questionable, but it does make for a cleaner engine bay without all the PCV piping.
 
F-Body Cam and Valvespring Swap
By far, one of the best mods you can possibly ever do to your LS1/LS6 is to install an aftermarket camshaft in it. Here I go through the whole process of selecting and installing an aftermarket camshaft, along with the various valvetrain upgrades that are required. Frequently asked cam related questions are also answered. (F-Body) More...

C5 Column Lock Bypass Install
One of the most common and annoying problems with the C5 model Corvette is the steering column lock getting stuck! There is nothing like walking out to your car after a hard day's work only to find your $45k sports car is immobile due to a faulty lock. Fortunatly, there is a way around this. A column lock bypass will disable the factory locking mechanism, while allowing the car's computer to still beleive everything is working problem free. Here we show how to install one. (C5) More...

LS1 Head Swap
Finally I dug in and did a headswap on an LS1. This turned out to be VERY easy, but a lot of work. I strongly recommend you have a helper during this install, and all the recommended tools listed on the page. Anybody that can turn a wrench (and not get frustrated when something goes wrong) can do this install no problem. (F-Body) More...
