1. This is My Stop

Wilwood Engineering's new ProMatrix rotor kits for '05-'13 Z06s and Grand Sports are direct dimensional replacements intended for sport driving and competition. SV-GT rotor kits deliver the highest level of performance for racing, while SRP rotor kits provide uncompromising performance for street driving and occasional track use. SV-GT rotors are fully machined, face slotted, and dynamically balanced. SRP rotors (shown) feature a drilled-and-slotted pattern and an available black E-coat finish, which gives a high-tech look while staving off rust. Both types are machined from staggered vane castings poured in Wilwood's Spec 37 proprietary cast-iron material for unmatched durability. Check it out!

2. Sounds of the '80s

Mid America Motorworks' new Monza-style mufflers are a direct-fit for '84-'91 Corvettes. They're constructed from 304 stainless steel and feature a new adjustable neck design that allows for a fast, no-modification install on your C4's current exhaust system. Then turn on your ears and listen to the perfectly tuned and balanced exhaust note Corvette owners love. Choose from angle-cut quad or ZR-1-style tips, both of which come hand polished. Check it out!

3. Mid-Century Modernism

Dakota Digital's VHX Series of instrumentation for '58-'62 Corvettes features chrome housings, lighted needles, backlit faces, and a full-character message center for all displays. The gauges rely upon solid-state sensors and precision stepper motors for the ultimate in accuracy, and feature a limited lifetime warranty for complete support both now and in the future. VHX Series instruments utilize either a factory or aftermarket wiring harness, and are compatible with stock, modified, and late-model drivetrains. Systems are available with a blue or red display color and either a satin-silver or carbon-fiber-style face.

4. Mamba Jamma

Zip Corvette's exclusive Mamba Air Intake System for '06-'12 LS7 and '08-'12 LS3 Corvettes is made from 100 percent carbon fiber, using manufacturing techniques borrowed from NASCAR and IndyCar. The result is what's described as the strongest and most durable Corvette air-intake system on the market today. The Mamba squeezes as much air as possible into the throttle body, while its extra-large washable air filter is custom designed for maximum flow. Zip says the intake has yielded improvements of 20-plus rear-wheel horsepower when coupled with the Mamba Air Intake Scoop (sold separately)

5. What Goes Around

HRE Performance Wheels' new Monoblok P40SC series rims are stronger, lighter, and more aggressively styled than any of the manufacturer's previous offerings. The wheels are available in five different styles, 19- and 20-inch diameters, 8- to 13-inch widths, and a variety of custom offsets. Each one starts as a single block of aerospace-grade 6061-T6 aluminum forged in California. After a painstaking design-and-engineering process, it's machined into its final shape at HRE's cutting-edge facility in San Diego.

6. Vinyl to Victory

PlastiKote's new vinyl paint is the speedy, easy-to-use solution for touch-ups on your Corvette. Use it on interior vinyl surfaces such as upholstery, dashboards, visors, and panel coverings, or on exterior surfaces like auto tops. The paint comes in 11 different colors and won't flake or rub off. Check it out!
