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 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...

Did you know?
The heads between all the GenIII motors are interchangable. LQ4 (6.0L), LQ9 (6.0L), LS1 (5.7L), LS6 (5.7L), and LR4/LM4 (4.8/5.3L) heads are all interchangable. However, combustion chamber size, port volumes, and valve size does vary between these different head castings.

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...

BMR Swaybar Install
If you've been fortunate enough to drive a true modern sports car, you probably noticed how tight and responsive the car felt. While the F-body may not be a true sports car, you can get it one step closer by upgrading the suspension. One of the key parts of the suspension is the stabilizer bar, a.k.a the anti-swaybars or "swaybars" for short. Here I'll detail how to remove and replace your stock bars for a set of aftermarket ones. (F-Body) More...
