eBay Motors is the destination to find new, used, hard-to-find and one-of-a-kind auto parts. We’re home to 40+ million parts from trusted local and international sellers and eBay’s Money Back Guarantee.

We’ve partnered with The Straight Pipes, the notoriously down-to-earth, tell-it-like-it-is, Canadian car review team for this year’s ultimate project build challenge – modifying a 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06.

Project Build ’22 – How it Works:

  • Step 1. Review the car
  • Step 2. Track test and dyno for baseline
  • Step 3. Order all the parts using eBay’s My Garage – a one stop shop customized by vehicle
  • Step 4. Build it, dyno it, measure for power gains
  • Step 5. Track test, and drag race a supercar and take it to a car show

The Straight Pipes team are no strangers to car reviews. Their YouTube channel ranks amongst the very best automotive news & entertainment channels in the world with 500+ reviews and 1.5 million fans.
