My 1973



Components, lubricants and more found on my 1973 Corvette.



Mallory Hyfire 6AL Digital CD Ignition

High output multi-spark ignition system. Built-in easy-to-adjust digital rev

limiter - 4,500 to 12,000 RPM - no chips required! Latest microprocessor-controlled circuitry. Lightweight aluminum housing - maximum heat transfer. More performance and lower power draw. Quicker acceleration and throttle response. Works with points, OEM or aftermarket electronic ignition, or magnetic crank triggers (exc. hall effect).

Keith Black Performance Pistons

Keith Black Pistons have everything you want in a performance piston:

the strength to withstand high compression and heat and lightweight design. Forged from high-silicon aluminum alloy, then CNC-machined and heat-treated for strength up to 30% greater than stock. They are also engineered with race-ready features like high upper compression-ring locations, gas-accumulator grooves, drilled oil returns, and spiral-lock

retainer grooves.

K&N High Performance Air Filters

The unique design features multiple layers of oiled cotton fabric which captures the airborne dirt particles. These dirt particles cling to the fibers of the filter and actually become part of the filtering media. This process, known as depth loading, allows the K&N air filter to retain significantly more dirt per square inch than a paper filter. The cotton fabric is sandwiched between pleated aluminum screen. Pleating increases surface area which in turn prolongs service intervals. Pleating exposes substantially more surface area compared to a flat element like foam.

The XStream Air Flow Top not only adds filter area, it actually redirects airflow inside the filter to pull in more air through the side pleats for even greater performance efficiency. Cleanable and reusable, the XStream Air Flow Top filter delivers the best protection available for your engine, and comes in a wide range of applications.

Hooker Headers

The Hooker line of Super Competition™ & Competition™ headers, mufflers and catback exhaust systems are the most complete

on the market. Since the golden era of drag racing in the 1960s,

Hooker has helped more racers reach the Winner's Circle than

any other header company. Street to race, Hooker exhaust

technology will make your car or truck perform and sound better.

Accel Superstock 4000 Spark Plug Wires

Designed to upgrade an OE ignition system for high spark delivery levels

for street-driven applications. The 8mm 450°F-rated silicone jacket is extruded over a tightly woven, rugged fiberglass braid which is applied over a high dielectric strength EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) inner insulation for ignition wire performance that exceeds SAE specifications.

Valvoline VR1 Racing Oil

The #1 selling racing motor oil. High zinc provides race-level protection for any vehicle.

  • High zinc/phosphorus provides extreme wear protection, including flat tappet applications
  • Additional friction modfiers to help deliver maximum horsepower
  • Enhanced anti-foam system protects engine during extreme stress
  • Compatible with gasoline or alcohol fuels


More NASCAR Sprint Cup and top NHRA crew chiefs use Valvoline. Valvoline Racing Oil's exclusive chemistry is designed to reduce friction and enhance power. It is among the most popular engine lubricants in all types of racing including paved and dirt ovals, and drag racing.

High performance applications with oversize cams and extra added horsepower will require about 1200ppm of Zinc. Valvoline VR1 Racing Oil contains 1300ppm of Zinc and 1200ppm of Phosphorus. Formulated for race engines, but compatible with passenger vehicles too.
