Sema 2007's Latest & Greatest Corvette UpgradesThis year's SEMA show rocked the Las Vegas Convention Center like no other trade show can. Because most of you cannot attend this event, we always try to give you an editorial photograph, so to speak, of what the SEMA show had for all us Corvette affectionatos. The SEMA show has acres and acres of the newest automotive technological advances known to man, and we thought we'd give you a small sampling of some of our favorite items. Hopefully, we will be able to use some of these products on our project cars this year. Enjoy!

Smooth Sailing
Billy Boat Performance Exhaust has just launched their new C6 Corvette Z06 Fusion catback exhaust system. The new Z06 exhaust is 3 inches from the factory, yet it necks down to 2.5 inches as it enters the mufflers, reducing exhaust flow and performance. The T-304 stainless steel system uses the PRT center muffler section for high exhaust flow and enhanced sound control, while the rear section is a 3-inch version of the B&B Bullet system, using an additional small resonated muffler at the back of the system. The muffler tips are double walled, 4-inches round, or 4.5-inches oval. The entire system comes completely polished and retains the OEM Z06 vacuumcontrolled exhaust butterflies.

Pour On "Z" Power

Test results prove that carefully selected combinations of Comp Performance Group products can transform your stock ZZ4 into a small-block powerhouse with bullet proof reliability.

Clearances around all wire harnesses, vacuum lines, and A/C lines are greater than any other system on the market, closely matching clearances from GM. Also included in the package is a pair of 3-inch high-flow catalyst converters, which flow into a full 3-inch, integrated PowerFlo-X Crossover assembly.
