For C5 Corvette enthusiasts looking for more stopping power either at the track or on the street, Wilwood has the solution.

Meziere LS1 Electric Water Pump (C5 Version)
For years talk of electric water pumps had been circulating through the LS1 community, and finally Meziere has delivered.

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...

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.

Infopic: How to port your throttlebody
First do some preliminary porting, making sure you DONT port right at the opening where the blade contacts when shut. Grind down the ridge thats about 1/2" in front of the blade and try to smooth it all out. Then, use JB weld to fill in the big port making sure the epoxy gets DEEP into the hole and wraps around inside the hole so once it sets, it can never fall out. Let it dry, then smooth the epoxy out and drill the hole in the epoxy for the PCV hose. On an F-body, you'll need to drill two holes. The Ybody only needs one.
