Just days after Ken Lingenfelter of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering said the new C7 may not be capable of producing much more than 700-hp, Hennessey Performance Engineering has announced it plans to offer two very powerful engine performance upgrades for the 2014 Corvette Stingray later this year.
For months now, in the aftermath of the Jalopnik renderings, critics of the polarizing new C7 rear end have been threatening to perform “plastic surgery” on their own and change what the GM designers came up with.
Now it appears that those who don’t like the new treatment at the back of the 2014 Corvette Stingray can really do something about it, thanks to the folks at www.corvetteitalia.it.
CORSA Performance is well-known for their exhaust systems among Corvette owners and at SEMA they have introduced a new air intake product which will be available in early 2013. CORSA’s Performance Intakes are designed to increase the amount of air flowing into your C6 Corvette, providing increased performance and better fuel economy over the stock air intakes.
My grandpa always used to say that there’s nothing wrong with listening to what a smart person has already figured out for you.
I thought of him as I was reading how Justin Abbott, the vice president and technical supervisor at Zip Corvette Parts, tests and develops parts for their extensive catalog.
Since the introduction of the dual mode performance exhaust on Z06 Corvettes back in 2006, owners have been doing this very simple mod to keep the NPP’s butterfly valves open so they can enjoy that deep exhaust rumble all the time. Since it’s such a popular and easy mod to do, we though we would make a quick video about the fuse and its location, as well as give you a couple of before and after sounds so you hear the difference.
