Crank on It
Odyssey Extreme Series 12V automotive batteries promise enormous cranking power and intense, deep-cycle reserve power, too. Their secret is 99.99-percent-pure virgin-lead flat plates, which are thinner than conventional lead-alloy plates and allow for a denser matrix within the battery case. According to the manufacturer, Extreme Series batteries deliver up to 2,250 amps of cranking power for five seconds (850 cold cranking amps), last from 3-10 years, and can go a full two years between charges while in storage. Choose from all popular BCI group numbers.

You're off of Restriction
Hedman Hedders' direct-replacement headers for C4 Corvettes maximize exhaust flow and maintain the factory catalytic-converter locations. Choose from Standard Duty or Ultra-Duty Elite Series, the latter featuring bulletproof 3⁄8-inch flanges and thicker-walled 14-gauge primaries. Both versions come with 15⁄8-inch (diameter) mandrel-bent primaries and 3-inch ball-and-socket–style collectors. Weld-on header reducers, meanwhile, allow the collectors to easily bolt up to the factory exhaust and create a durable, gasket-free seal. Mounting hardware, instructions, and an E.O. sticker for your engine compartment are all included.
