[PIC] 2016 Corvette's New Carbon Fiber Visible Hood


We first saw the return of RPO B92 at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash event where it was on display on the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition. But that hood was covered with a Jake graphic and with the car roped off and parked indoors, it was hard to get a really good look at it let alone a good photo. Now we have some new pics from our friends at Kerbeck Corvette showing the B92 hood on a new 2016 Corvette Z06.

With all the attention given to the outstanding C7 Corvette these days, the C5 seems to have taken a back seat in the public’s eye.

[Operation Air Flow] Episode 3: Dyno Time for our CORSA Exhaust and Intake Install

It’s time to button up Operation Air Flow. In Episode 1 we installed a CORSA carbon fiber intake on our 2009 Corvette coupe with the help of our friends at Smokey’s Dyno and Performance. Then in Episode 2 they helped us bolt on a CORSA Sport performance exhaust system. Prior to each episode we ran our C6 on the dyno at Smokey’s so we could compare the stock horsepower and torque numbers to those after each component was installed. Now it’s time to share the results.
