Better Breathing Corvette Z06

One of the benefits of doing corner worker duty, that I failed to mention here yesterday, is that you can get to know your co-competitors better.  One of my corner co-workers, Eric, brought his car to the 10/19/2008 SASCA autocross.  It’s a screamin’ yellow Corvette Z06.

It’s relatively street stock.  Most of the modifications I could see were aesthetic in value, but it sure looked faster.  Being that it’s in the ASP (A Stock Prepared) class, there is more that Eric didn’t tell me.  On the performance side, he did say he made a major effective performance upgrade by adding a K&N cold air intake & filter.  Eric thinks it has added at least 10HP, if not more.

I know that as a present and past user of K&N filters, this accessory is the most cost effective accessory you can put on your car or truck.  It is just a simple air cleaner swap, fitting in place just like your standard, factory air cleaner.  The guys at K&N seem to know what they’re doing, as the car just breathes better, runs smoother & it accelerates more strongly, like it has additional torque.

I feel so strongly about K&N filters, that I firmly believe this should be your FIRST performance upgrade to your car or truck!  To assist you in this, I will be putting up a new ad on the page this weekend – you’ll see it when I change over to my new WordPress blog theme.  Tomorrow, I hope.  In the meantime – ENJOY!

Racing Ready is on the move!
