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’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.

If 460 horsepower from the factory isn’t enough to satisfy your need for speed from your 2014 Stingray, then you might want to check with the good folks at Edelbrock.
Edelbrock has just revealed an all-new E-Force Supercharger kit that won’t break the bank but will deliver numbers on par with the upcoming 2015 Corvette Z06. The company says its supercharger will produce 624 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque.
Our friends at Zip Corvette are hosting their 3rd Annual “Cruising in the Fast Lane” car show at their headquarters in Mechanicsville, VA this Saturday from 10am to 3pm.
Over 400 Corvettes are expected to converge at Zip Corvette for a full day of fun, food and of course, Corvettes! The best news is that there is no entry or registration fee to join the fun. Just bring your Corvette. They’ll take car of the rest!
It’s time for the Corvette community to rally around one of our own as an early morning fire Saturday destroyed the RPI Designs fiberglass plant in Beloit, Ohio.
RPI offers many C5/C6/C7 Corvette parts and accessories, ranging from custom body color painted parts to exhaust systems, grills, and more and says on its website that it’s shipped over 110,000 orders to satisfied customers since 1999.
Fortunately, no one was injured in the weekend blaze, which gutted the 8,000-square-foot plant that made plastic aftermarket parts for Corvettes and Camaros. No cause has been determined, but the building was insured.
