Z06 has improved performance with K&N on the track
The Corvette was a big hit at SEMA, and it also received a lot of attention at
the National Corvette Museum at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Kentucky.
“High-end performance is already a big benefit from K&N,” said Widner.
“We noticed the additional benefit of K&N with the boost in low end performance at Spring
Mountain. We ran our Z06 against a Z06 with stock intakes and noticed quicker
acceleration off the turns and in the straightaway with K&N.”
Widner also takes his cars to Silver State Classic Challenge and the Bonneville
100. “We have three Denali’s that haul around our cars and we use K&N products
for the extra tow power,” he said.
