Company Background Information

We know Corvairs.  Whether it is a performance street driven Corvair, a restored show car, a regular daily driver, or a Racing Yenko Stinger, we know how to make it perform, reliably and economically. Performance Corvairs is a company that supplies many performance parts built specifically for the Corvair. The company started out supplying high performance ignition wires for racing Corvairs. Silicone Wire Systems, the original company, now supplies ignition wiresets for all types of cars, but we still specialize in the Corvair. The largest Corvair parts retailers sell our Wire sets. The sets are still hand-made in San Jose, CA, using the proper tooling and only the best materials. We have been in business for more than 40 years and have proven our dedication to Corvairs.
