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...

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.

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...

Did you know?
LS6 blocks (which, starting in 2003, are also LS1 blocks) are made of a slightly darker duller metal than the pre-2003 LS1 blocks. This may be an easy way to tell what kind of block your car has.

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: Y-Body vs F-body underdrive pulley
Both of these pulleys are ASP underdrive units. As you can see, the LS1 crank pulley on the vettes looks quite a bit different than on the f-bodies. The main difference is that the belts and accessories all sit further back on the engine since the steering rack on the vette is so close to the front of the motor.

C5 Suspension Spring Swap
One of the great things about the C5 Corvette is that it achieves great handling while still offering a luxury like ride. For a majority of people, this base (FE1) suspension is perfect. For some of us, we want just a *little* more than the next guy. Here I detail how to change your stock suspension springs out for something a bit more responsive. (C5) More...

Throttle Body Swap
Here I show how to go about removing/reinstalling the throttle body. It is VERY easy for a novice to do. I ended up replacing my stock one with a ported unit from Mike Morgan Motorsports, but noticed no performance gain what so ever. (F-Body) More...
