NEW: 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...

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...

Did you know?
The floorpans in a C5 corvette are made of balsa wood, sandwiched between 2 layers of fiberglass. This was done for weight savings and interior noise reduction.
 
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...

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...

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...
