Better Breathing for C7s

Looking to upgrade the exhaust system of your ’14 Corvette Stingray? Check out Billy Boat Performance Exhaust’s new C7 header/X-pipe system.


It’s hand-crafted from T304 stainless steel and TIG welded with 17⁄8-inch tubes arranged in a 4-into-1 merge collector, a configuration that maximizes scavenging. Downstream, the crossover pipe further improves scavenging and refines the system’s tone.

Tri-Y header configurations are also available, as are high-flow catalytic converters.

TQs for Your C5/C6

RideTech’s TQ (Track Quality) Coilover Suspension System offers today’s Corvette owner the ultimate in ride quality and handling performance.


TQ coilovers are equipped with a single rebound adjustment and a dual-stage (high- and low-speed) compression adjustment. Additional features include an impact-forged aluminum body, CNC-machined billet hardware, and high-quality Delrin spring washers that allow bind-free pre-load adjustments.

Each coilover uses a remote reservoir that is connected with a 30-inch braided line for easy installation on your ’97-’04 or ’05-’13 Corvette.

New Tech, Classic Style

What’s better than classic Corvette style? How about combining that style with 21st Century wheel tech, as Classic Reflections Coachworks has done with its ’58-style wheels for C5s and C6s.


Available in 17-, 18-, 19-, and 20-inch sizes, they feature include billet aluminum construction, a C1-style spinner, and a “whitewall” that’s actually part of the wheel—giving it the look of a retro 16-incher.

They’re manufactured for Classic Reflections Coachworks by Evod, a company that knows a thing or two about making high-tech wheels for Corvettes.

Show the Colors

We’re talking about the colors on your ’79 Corvette’s gas-lid emblem, which have likely faded over time.


TrimParts’ reproduction ’79 Corvette gas-lid emblem is manufactured from the correct die-cast zinc, then beautifully chrome plated and painted with historically accurate colors. Even better, it’s a direct-fit replacement for the original, complete with the appropriate mounting studs.

More Power, No Tuning

Airaid’s new cold-air intake system can add up to 23 horsepower to your C5, according to the manufacturer.


Thanks to its unique design and massive air filter (which can flow 1,600 cfm), it’ll support power levels of up to 800 hp while still providing plenty of underhood clearance. It’s available with your choice of a traditional oiled filter or Airaid’s own SynthaMax dry filter material in red or blue.

The system is a direct bolt-in for ’01-’04 C5s, and it’ll also fit any ’97-’00 C5 that’s been converted to the later-style mass air sensor.

Want EFI? Get QFI

Quick Fuel Technology’s QFI is a bolt-on, throttle-body EFI system that combines a carburetor’s superior fuel atomization with EFI’s precise fuel control.


Features include 62-lb/hr injectors, an onboard ignition driver, and full timing control with an integral two-step rev control. The system also offers a variety of programming solutions, including self-learning capability, a handheld controller, or laptop tuning.

QFI is designed for 4150- and 4500-style-flange intake manifolds, and is compatible with nitrous oxide, superchargers and turbochargers, and (with minor modifications) E85 fuel. It’s available as a base kit, or in a “master” version that includes an inline fuel pump and fittings. Choose from a polished-aluminum or Black Diamond finish.
