Corvette Engine Parts

Many people don't understand the strain improving performance products and increasing engine HP can put on their vehicle's smaller components. Coolant systems, engine mounts, oil systems, and other Corvette engine components can break down more quickly under the increased stress. Upgrading your Corvette's engine with C5 Corvette engine component products will help your vehicle handle its increased power and performance better and live a longer life, even with high stress engine modifications. These improvements themselves, while also helping with vehicle life, can improve performance on their own. The unique Corvette 160 degree Thermostat and upgraded Corvette spark plug wires have incredible performance benefits also.

  • C6 Corvette Spark Plug Wires

    C6 Corvette Spark Plug Wires

    $89.99
    The MSD 8.5mm Super Conductor Wire is "the" performance wire.Engineered from the inside out, the 8.5 offers everything you have everwanted in a wire; incredibly low resistance without electronic interference! In a single 12 inch length of Super Conductor Wire there is only 40 - 50 ohms of resistance! That is the lowest resistance of any helically wound wire. To accomplish this, we use a copper alloy conductor due to it's great voltage carrying capabilities. The low resistance results in less loss in spark energy so more reaches the spark plug. The conductor is wound extremely tight around a special center core. So tight in fact, that there is over 40 feet of conductor wrapped into a single foot of plug wire. This winding procedure, combined with a ferro-magnetic impregnated center core, produces an extremely effective Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) "choke". This choke, or suppression capability, keeps the EMI inside the wire where it cannot interfere with other electronics on your vehicle. The outer sleeve that surrounds the conductor assembly is just as impressive. A proprietary blend of silicone and synthetic material produce a sleeve that is highly resistant to high heat as well as abrasion and tears. The MSD 8.5mm Super Conductor Plug Wire is available in Universal Kits and Bulk Lengths.

    C6 C5 Corvette Coupe and Convertible K&N Oil Filter

    $9.99
      High Performance Replacement Oil Filter for all C6 Corvettes (2005-2007) Coupe and Convertible (excluding Z06). K&N Performance Gold Oil Filters Originally developed for demanding auto race applications, our premium oil filter is rapidly becoming a favorite among consumers for its durability and easy removal. We’ve changed oil filters and several of our product development technicians are sportsman class drag racers. They insisted we offer an oil filter that corrected the “headaches” they experienced over the years changing oil filters. Our Oil Filters Have Nuts We have all been there: Whether it’s remembering where that disappearing canister tool is; or having oil leak all over your garage and yourself; or finally giving up and pounding a screwdriver through the filter just to get if off. Each of our automotive and marine oil filters comes with a 1" nut welded to the top of the canister so they can be easily wrenched-off with a standard tool. Our motorcycle and ATV oil filters come with a 17 mm nut. Heavy-Duty Construction for Extreme Conditions To satisfy the demands of racers, our oil filter has many features over and above the requirements of most vehicles. We use thicker canister walls for extra strength and durability which reduces the risk of damage from loose rocks and debris. The heavy-duty construction will withstand higher oil pressures found only in racing environments without bursting. The drilled hole on the nut is for a safety wire attachment. Required for many types of racing, the safety wire prevents blown oil filters from falling on the track and representing a hazard to other race vehicles. This extra engineering offers peace of mind for consumers who want only the best. HP-1017 (2007+) HP-1007 (2005-2006)

  • Corvette C5 Green Filter

    Corvette C5 Green Filter

    $69.99
    Replacement Green Filter for the stock C5 (1997-2004) Air Filter About Green Filters 1995 was a great year for music (The Velvet Underground’s epic box set Peel Slowly and See was released), movies (Mel Gibson’s Scottish smash-hit Braveheart took the Oscar for best picture), and motorsports (Green Cotton Air Filters was founded). Green Filters was born from a lofty ideal: to design, develop and supply high-quality cotton air filters to the racing industry. Since its fledgling days, Green Filters has far surpassed its own goals. After creating a winning cotton filter design, Green Filters gained wide recognition by some of Europe’s biggest race teams. Peugeot, Citroen and other motorsports teams trusted Green Filters to deliver the perfect blend of airflow and filtration to their million-dollar speed demons. Green Filters rapidly developed an international reputation for excellence in engineering, and they adapted their technology for the automotive aftermarket. In no time, Green Filters became Europe’s largest cotton air filter manufacturer. These days, Green Filters are widely available throughout the United States, thanks to authorized deals like Southern Car Parts. Why are Green Filters so popular? They have incredibly deep pleats, which increases the filter’s surface area by 10-20% over a stock paper filter. Plus, the medium and fine cotton gauze layers trap and hold dirt, dust and moisture particle as small as 0.50 microns. This blend of flow and filtration allows Green Filters to unleash extra horsepower, torque and fuel economy.
