Mid America Motorworks has released two new wheel and wheel/tire packages for C3 Corvettes. The first is the Kelsey-Hayes YJ8 wheel, originally manufactured from 1976-1982. It's been meticulously recreated for Mid America using the latest CNC machinery. The second is a classy reproduction of the Corvette Rally wheel. Both wheel styles can be bought separately or matched with a set of BF Goodrich Radial T/A all-season tires-mounted, balanced, and ready to bolt on. According to Mid America, these "cost-effective Corvette wheel and tire packages will save all C3 Corvette owners a lot of time, money, and aggravation. In addition to the savings, your C3 will have the best-looking wheels at any automotive event." For more information, visit www.mamotorworks.com.
Katech Performance has unveiled its ClubSport exhaust system for the C6 Z06, ZR1, and base model with NPP exhaust. When combined with a crossover-style pipe, it's said to shave 30 pounds while adding a deep, aggressive tone. Using the factory baffle system to turn off one side of the exhaust during low-rpm cruising, the ClubSport exhaust cancels out the sound waves that cause drone. The result is a deep, race-car-like sound at high rpm, along with a pleasing tone at moderate levels. The kit includes two over-axle pipes, two ClubSport mufflers with Corsa quad tips, and an installation kit with a hose and clamps. Go to www.katech.com for all the details.

Bump Your Sump
Aviaid, the company responsible for the lubrication system in the GT3 championship-winning Callaway Corvettes, has developed a three-part retrofit dry-sump oiling system for the C6 Z06. The first component is a specially baffled insert that drops into the tank and prevents the oil from sloshing around and getting into the intake manifold. The system's second component is a unique cage insert for the oil pan that keeps lubricant near the pick-up. It's joined by a louvered windage tray that prevents power-robbing windage. Finally, Aviaid offers a single-section dry-sump pump that mounts to the cylinder head and augments the OEM pump, vastly improving scavenging and evacuation (oil-pan modifications required).
