I've installed both and sold many more. Like on my car no tune is needed. I know tuners say tune it but gms tune is so rich that intakes are still safe

Don't waste money on cat back. Do the corsa x pipe and get.it ceramic coated. Oem mufflers sound so good with the corsa on.

Car sounds raspy with X-Pipe only. If you like the sound of an eBay powered Honda Civic then by all means X-Pipe your car.

I've installed 13 corsa x pipes on the z06s. Not one complaint about rasp but the Borla x pipe does not sound as good.

I'm doing the corsa x pope on my own car next week I'll put up more vids. Also ask anyone on here or on other vett forum about corsa x pipe all say the same thing sounds great no issues of rasp..... the 2nd x on the corsa mid pipe makes a nice difference

Do I need a tune if I go with your 9% crank pulley for the z06?

Also, is it a do it yourself install?

Thanks!

Hey Tony,
corvette7tuning.com is advertising the AFES CAI for 499 plus free shipping. It is for the c7 so I'm assuming it is the same model

Doesn't the c7 already have a CAI! Seems like all these aftermarket CAIs boil down to the filter. They all get attached to the same place as the OEM. Seems like a lot of $$ for a filter. Or is there something more to this?

I gained 40 rwhp and on the z06 least amount I've seen is 36 rwhp gain.

On c7 ones I've sold to and install about 20 at wheels.

I also have the ram air boots now.

Oh and on a buddy's z06 we installed the afe and he went .4 faster at the track same day

Would you add a cold air intake to your 2016 Z06 AFE is what I'm looking at I put one on my new 2015 Platnium 5.0 and it sounded great before I added dual Flowmaster exhaust
