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...

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: 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.

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...
