2015-2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 6.2L supercharged V8 K&N air intake

K&N Filters used carbon fiber for the 2015-2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 6.2L supercharged V8 performance air intake system because an aluminum, or HDPE, intake tube wouldn’t do this car justice

Now in its seventh generation of production, the C7 Chevrolet Corvette, introduced for the 2014 model year, incorporates cutting edge technology such as an all-new 6.2-Liter LT1 V8 engine. Chevrolet boasts 460 horsepower, and a zero to sixty mph time of just 3.8 seconds for the standard C7 Corvette Stingray models. While the 6.2L LT1 engine found in 2014-2016 Chevy Corvette Stingray models is certainly no slouch, Chevrolet took the Corvette to a whole different level of performance with the 2015 Corvette Z06. The 2015-2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a higher performance version of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with a 6.2L supercharged & intercooled LT4 engine. Chevrolet rates the 2015-2016 Corvette Z06 with an astounding 650 HP and 650 lb-ft of torque.

The 2015-2016 Z06 package doesn’t just equip a standard C7 Stingray with a forced induction V8, there are many differences including fenders which are extended by 56 mm front and 80 mm rear

The 2015-2016 Z06 package doesn’t just equip a standard C7 Stingray with a forced induction V8, no, in fact there are many differences including fenders which are extended by 56 mm up front and 80 mm in the rear. Plus the 2015-2016 Corvette Z06 sports extensive use of carbon fiber throughout the Z06 specific body panels, and aerodynamic aids. So when it came time for engineers at K&N Filters to design a performance air intake system for the 2015-2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 6.2L supercharged V8, the usual mandrel-bent aluminum, or roto-molded HDPE intake tube just wouldn’t do this car justice.

The K&N performance air intake, number 63-3090, for 2015-2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 models takes advantage of the lightweight and stellar looks of a fully carbon fiber air intake tube

That’s why the K&N performance air intake, number 63-3090, for 2015-2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 models takes advantage of the lightweight and stellar looks of a fully carbon fiber air intake tube. The 2015-2016 Z06 carbon intake tube even has a provision for the factory mass airflow sensor molded into it. The use of carbon fiber in this K&N air intake system doesn’t end with the tube. The oval-tapered high-flow performance K&N air filter is finished off with a carbon fiber top plate holding the legendary K&N pleated oiled cotton media between the fully carbon fiber air filter base and flange. Durable reinforced rubber hose connects these pieces while special black zinc coated hose clamps keep it all together. A powder coated mild steel application specific air filter heat shield finished with durable edge trim completes the 2015-2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 K&N intake package.

An additional benefit of installing this K&N air intake on a 2015-2016 Corvette Z06 is the amazing growl released by the supercharged LT4 V8 when the accelerator is pushed to the floor

Just like the Corvette Z06 package, this K&N air intake system performs even better than it looks. K&N performs in-house dyno testing to ensure that each K&N air intake system will provide a guaranteed increase in horsepower. K&N installed performance air intake 63-3090 on an otherwise stock 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 supercharged 6.2L V8, and the results were almost mind blowing. The fact that replacing the restrictive factory air intake tract with a K&N air intake made an estimated additional 50.71 horsepower and 62.85 lb-ft of torque on an already incredible car speaks to the 2015-2016 Z06 model’s potential with a few bolt on upgrades. But as the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, so feel free to take a look at the K&N 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 dyno chart for yourself.

An additional benefit of installing this K&N air intake on a 2015-2016 Corvette Z06 is the amazing growl released by the supercharged LT4 when the accelerator is pushed to the floor. But once at cruising speed the growl is tamed to a purr and shouldn’t detract from the day to day driving experience. Like other K&N air intake systems, the carbon fiber top and bottom filter used in this air intake is washable and reusable with a K&N Recharger air filter service kit. The entire air intake system is backed by a 10-year/million mile limited warranty to give K&N users the confidence to invest in a K&N performance upgrade. Taking that philosophy one step further, K&N will warrant that when used properly, K&N products will not cause engine damage and will not result in a vehicle
