K&N Corvette C7 Cold Air

K&N Gives Corvette C7 a Blast of Fresh, Cold Air

The 2014-2015 Chevy Corvette is a pretty remarkable machine fresh out of the factory: a 460-horsepower engine, capable of getting you up to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, still manages to get you a respectable-for-the-pop 29 highway miles per gallon. Despite those impressive specs, K&N has managed to help you get even more out of it.

K&N Air Filter
K&N Air Filter

With its cold air intake for the new 6.2L Corvette, K&N guarantees more horsepower and torque by replacing the restrictive factory air filter box and accordion hose with a free-flowing, high-density polyethylene air intake tube that minimizes restriction and increases airflow to the engine.

Dyno tests showed 12.51 more horses on average at 4,998 RPM and an extra 16.63 lb-ft of torque at 4,004 RPM. Merge it, pass it, punch it: you’ll enjoy a boost across your Vette’s entire RPM range.

The 63-3081 is married to one of K&N’s high-flow carbon-fiber air filters, which is washable and reusable and capable of going as far as 100K miles between cleanings (depending on driving conditions).

Also Features:

  • Quick installation time of 90 minutes or less with standard hand tools
  • Maintains all factory connections and does not require additional modifications
  • K&N’s Million Mile Limited Warranty

Royal Purple

Getting the Most out of Royal Purple’s Royal Flush Cleaner

Royal Purple’s Royal Flush is a safe, effective, and inexpensive product for cleaning sludge and varnish from oil circulation systems while in service. This corrosion inhibitor and lubricant is available in two viscosities and can be used in three main ways:

Royal Flush
Royal Flush
  1. Added to existing oil to clean varnish and sludge before draining existing oil.
  2. As a temporary oil fill to clean varnish and sludge from equipment before refilling with new Royal Purple oil.
  3. As a temporary oil fill for cleaning and flushing a polyglycol oil that is incompatible with the new oil to be used.

Though Royal Flush is accompanied by thorough use instructions, Performance Corner got the following four pro tips straight from Royal Purple headquarters:

  • It is best to first drain the existing engine coolant, then pour in a bottle or two of Royal Flush and fill with water. Existing coolant should be drained into containers and disposed of properly (it is not suitable for release into the environment).
  • Once the mix is in-system, the engine should be started and allowed to run for at least 5 minutes after the thermostat has opened (about 15–20 minutes for most vehicles)—the longer the better. Particularly contaminated systems may benefit from running all day with this mix. Assuming no freeze/boilover protection is required, the system can safely drive for a day on the mix.
  • Concerning the removal of stop-leak products: Effectiveness will depend on the type of stop-leak used, how long it has been in the system, and how it was dosed. Royal Flush will not remove inorganic stop-leak products (those containing silicon, aluminum, copper, etc.).
  • Royal Flush will not harm your system—no matter how much you use. Though the formula also poses very low risk to the user, we nonetheless recommend that it be treated with respect and handled as little as possible.
