The kit incudes a low-profile, seven-speed wiper motor with five delays, low speed, and high speed; a rotary switch; a wiring harness; and a CNC’d aluminum adapter plate that uses the stock firewall bolt pattern.

Brake It to the Limit
Wilwood’s new front disc-brake kit for ’53-’62 Corvettes is claimed to significantly enhance safety and performance while decreasing unsprung weight when compared with the stock drums. The base package includes high-performance, 12.19-inch vented rotors; a choice of black- or red-powdercoated six-piston calipers; and BP-10 metallic-composite Smart Pads. (Other rotor and pad configurations are available optionally.) Application-specific brackets, premium-grade hardware, and alignment shims are also included.

Pump Your Ride
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering’s (LPE) new C5 fuel pump promises improved flow (225 lph at 60 psi pressure) in high-performance ’97-’03 Corvette applications. Designed to fit without vehicle modification, it’s ideal for turbo- or supercharged engines making up to 600 hp, and naturally aspirated engines generating up to 700 horses. (For higher-output applications, LPE suggests adding a Boost-A-Pump voltage booster.) The pump, housing, filters, internal wiring harness and fuel line, and detailed installation instructions are all included.
