Protection With Style—C7 Style

Why does your new C7 Corvette need a set of floor mats from Lloyd Mats?

To protect those new carpets on your C7’s floor and cargo areas, these premium-quality mats are just what you need—and they’re available in colors matching the OEM C7 Jet, Gray and Brownstone carpet colors, with your choice of over a dozen beautifully reproduced logos and combination badges found on the new Stingray.

Lloyd Mats is the largest aftermarket manufacturer of logo floor mats for all Corvette models and years, and is the only licensed manufacturer of mats for the new C7 Stingray. Lloyd is the only licensed mat manufacturer for the C6 Corvette, as well.

They’re sold through a network of Corvette specialty retailers, as well as from hundreds of online and authorized GM dealer locations.

Another LS-Swap Must-Have

Here’s another must-have if you’re swapping an LS-series V-8 into an early-gen Corvette: An “Econo-Series” LS-swap oil pan from Hamburger’s Performance.

It clears your Vette’s factory engine crossmember, thanks to its rear-mounted sump and lower profile than a stock LS-series oil pan—which also means better ground clearance than with the stock pan.

Built from two-piece stampings of extra-thick 0.055-inch steel, each pan is jig welded, then block-fit tested for the best possible fit and finish. Hamburger’s LS engine swap pan uses the factory O-ring seal to ensure an OE-quality seal.

You’ll need to relocate your oil filter, but Hamburger’s has you covered with a pair of integrated -10 AN fittings that make hooking up a remote engine oil filter a breeze.

Like all Econo-Series Oil Pans, the LS swap pan is built with a reinforced mounting flange to withstand the higher stresses created by high-horsepower engines, and to provide additional block rigidity. It comes with everything needed to install it, including a magnetic drain plug, specially designed oil pump pickup, and hardware.

Get On The Ball (Joints)

Attention Corvette restorers and builders: QA1’s Ultimate Ball Joints are now offered with additional stud length options, and are available pre-assembled.

Their innovative and durable design, which provides infinite preload adjustment, means smooth, bind-free operation. Engineered to withstand years of use, QA1’s ball joints feature precise ball-to-race conformity that provides an even load distribution for unbeatable wear resistance and increased longevity. With their simple construction and assembly, they can be easily cleaned, inspected, and rebuilt—and can be adjusted while they’re still on your Vette.

Available in popular bolt-in, press-in, and screw-in styles, they come pre-assembled with your choice of standard-size studs, or studs up to an inch longer than stock. These longer length QA1 ball joints can help to improve your Vette’s overall geometry by increasing straight line stability and improving roll center and can also help to free up bind, allowing your Vette’s suspension to operate smoothly through its entire range of travel.

And, with prices starting at just $44.95, you can’t afford not to install them!
