JET Power For Your LS1
If you have invested big money in a high-flowing intake manifold, throttle body, and heads but are still drawing air through the stock 75mm LS1 MAF, it's time to pick up JET Performance's Mass Air Sensor Conversion Kit. Even bolt-on cars could benefit from a 90-cfm flow increase, which should add up to 10 hp. The 85mm sensor, adapter harness, and all necessary hardware are included for the conversion.

May The Schwartz Be With You
At 505 hp the LS7 is impressive enough, but with Schwartz Extreme Performance's special touch, say hello to 730 horses. This naturally aspirated, pump-gas crate motor uses a retuned GM ECU, custom spec cam, modified heads, and custom 17/8-inch headers to achieve a boatload of added power. The Schwartz LS7 is available with the standard nylon intake or a GM Performance Parts aluminum intake with a modified stock 90mm drive-by-wire throttle body, custom spacer, and 103mm MAF housing for an old-school look with new-school performance. This crate motor boasts a perfect 920-rpm idle and a broad powerband up to 7,800 rpm. Prices start at $22,000.

Set The Pace
Finally, front-wheel-drive V-6s get a little help in the performance department from PaceSetter Headers. The 3.1L and 3.4L '97-'03 Grand Prix, '97-'05 Century, and '00-'05 Monte Carlo and Impalas can benefit from CNC-machined, port-matched 3/8-inch-thick steel flanges, 15/8-inch 16-gauge primaries, 3-inch mid-pipes, and a stainless steel flex joint. EGR hook up is provided, but these headers are for off-road use only. Non-supercharged 3.8L models use a 21/2-inch mid-pipe. However, all applications are available with both a black paint and ARMOR Coat finish for very reasonable prices.

Seal The Power
The rings are one of the most overlooked areas of an engine build, yet also one of the most crucial. Total Seal has just expanded its line of Advanced Profiling Steel Ring Sets to include LS1, LS2, and LS7 applications, as well as aftermarket pistons from 4.000 to 4.185 inches. The AP steel top ring sets are available in either Total Seal's patented Gapless or conventional style. Conventional ductile moly is also available for LS1 and LS2 motors, as well as overbore sizes. Total Seal rings are designed to hold up to the extreme abuse racing imposes, while being as gentle as possible on the cylinder walls.
