After our visit to CORSA Performance last month we headed over to Smokey’s Dyno and Performance in nearby Akron, Ohio to check out their first class custom shop. Smokey’s is a full service tuning shop offering everything from ECM tunes to custom wheel and tire installation. They specialize in all makes and models but, of course, we were there to talk Corvettes.

Welcome to Operation Air Flow where we’ll take a bone stock 2009 Corvette and bolt on some extra horsepower via a Carbon Fiber air intake and Sport exhaust system from CORSA Performance. After each item is installed we’ll hit the dyno for some real horsepower and torque numbers. The end goal is to show you some easy ways to unlock some extra ponies from your ride.
If you’ve been to any of the major Corvette shows over the last several years you’ve probably seen the crew from CORSA swapping exhausts on Corvettes faster than a C6 ZR1 runs 0-100mph. Some of you may even have CORSA products on your ride already. Ever wonder where your products came from? Yeah, we did too. So last weekend during the Corvettes at CORSA show we took the opportunity tour CORSA’s headquarters in Berea, Ohio.
If you’re not satisfied with the standard 460 horsepower of the 2014 Corvette Stingray, then you might want to talk to the folks at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
They’ve just released several packages that will dramatically boost the Stingray’s output, starting with a jump to 550 horsepower and climbing in increments of 50 all the way to 750 horsepower.
Last weekend we made a run down to CORSA Performance’s corporate headquarters in Berea, Ohio to take in their 12th annual Corvettes at CORSA show. Rain threatened, but never materialized which made for a dry, yet hot and muggy Midwestern summer day for roughly 250 Corvette owners. Read on to see more from this year’s show.
Our friends at Zip Corvette have been pretty busy these last few months putting the finishing touches on their newly redesigned website for Corvette parts and accessories and now they are ready to show it off. If you are in need of a few (or many!) parts for your Corvette or want to be the best-dressed owner at your monthly club meet, check out the new Zip-Corvette.com.
