The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 that served as the Daytona 500 pace car is mechanically identical to those available at dealerships. It is also the fastest vehicle ever offered by Chevrolet and General Motors. Drivers can go from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds with its 7.0 liter all aluminum racing inspired 505 horsepower engine. The Corvette’s top speed is 198 mph.
K&N Engineering, Inc. developed a 63 Series Air Charger Intake System (63-3060) for the 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 7.0 liter V8 engine.
K&N dynamometer tests show a horsepower gain of 27.22 horsepower @ 5600 RPM on this super car. A Z06 is the closest experience many will have to the experience of sitting in a race car. The 63-3060’s aerodynamically engineered tube allows for more air to flow into the engine.
“The design of the K&N Air Charger Intake System had to meet and exceed the demands of a motor that makes 500 horsepower,” said K&N Performance Kit Manager Bert Heck. “In order to do this the K&N Air Filter included in this intake system is made from carbon fiber and very large. We also put an air foil in the large intake tube to provide extra strength and to help streamline the incoming air once it passes through the K&N Air Filter. Our K&N Air Intake System provides less restriction which results in more power.”
It takes less than 90 minutes to install most K&N Air Intake Systems with common tools.
