General Motors Performance now offers a warranty-compliant air intake upgrade for the current generation of Chevrolet Corvette, capable of boosting maximum horsepower by as much as 17.
Using a revised airbox and a dry media filter (as opposed to many oiled-up aftermarket options), the intake can reduce restriction by as much as 30 percent. On the Corvette ZR1, with its supercharged 6.2-liter LT5 V-8, it cuts restriction by 26 percent and adds 17 horsepower for a total of 772. Corvette Z06 owners too can gain performance from the intake, which frees up the intake by 28 percent and generates an additional 11 horsepower for the car’s supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V-8, for a total of 661 horsepower.

Owners of naturally-aspirated Corvettes get a 30 percent restriction reduction and presumably some extra induction noise but no extra power on the dynamometer. A trip to a local tuner may be able to free...

I put this in my car Nik. The dealership stated 9 HP but and I didn’t feel any increase. There is a bit more induction noise at higher loads but nothing Dodge Hellcatish for distinctive supercharged sound.
The price is about $900 however I got it for far far less from them due to a relationship thing buying 3 cars there last year.
I got it for the looks only and wasn’t after HP. As it’s factory and doesn’t require a tune, the warranty is also unaffected.
It’s also an easy install with no modifications required if anyone wants to put it on themselves.
Is it a serious performance upgrade...?? Hell no. Not without some other stuff done that this mod will possibly support. So if anyone is considering it, don’t expect to feel a performance difference...it’s for show and personal pleasure. 😂

Here it is installed in my car.

I like the JAKE Corvette racing logo..... That looks pretty cool. I checked this out on ebay, and you're pretty much spot on regarding price. All said and done it would be about $900.00 shipped to my door. Hmmmmm......$900 for 11 hp.......... If you were raving about an increased induction noise, I might be more inclined to purchase it. I also like the sounds of 661hp and the logo, along with knowing my engine is breathing easier.................maybe Santa will help me out..........although I haven't been a good boy this year............again............. :)

As I have the NA engine I would get nothing or very little other than looks for approx. $900
I'll keep my wallet closed for now - at least for this mod.
But I do appreciate reading about it and Derek's evaluation.

I had it installed at my local dealer and negotiated the parts price when I did the order and they did better on the install price. Nice piece I must say and it does look like a bigger box than stock. On my 2017 Z06.
