I recently bought out A/O Engineering's remaining parts cache'. They no longer offer the Forced Air kit. As of this time, I am the only supplier of the A/O parts.

I am bringing to market a slightly improved, new design of Forced Air for 1984 -1996 Corvettes. BFR Air Blast kit.

Not sure if I'll become a supporting vendor here but most likely will.

I am looking for the licence plate intake portion ,I bought car and someone has cut out behind the plate for air intake but just covered the hole with the plate.I have a fpk cold air intake but fresh air to it can't hurt and I would like to fill the hole in the bumper with something besides a plate.Plate intake and hose if possible since it is cut out behind plate.

Probably not something that I'll have on my plate anytime soon. Noteworthy though.

I have been running one for years. I couldn't tell you if it makes and difference or not as far as power goes. Keep in mind these cars tune themselves on the fly to a certain degree. If you are able to get increased air flow into the plenum at triple digits then you will need more fuel runing through the injectors to get more power. I think the biggest advantage is getting fresh air from in front of the car instead of getting it from under the hood. Cold air itself makes a significant difference and 30+ degree mornings are noticeably better !

I'm down, I don't think you'll have a problem selling em or at least parts for it. I was gearing up to make my own.

Great Plan!!!
Weren't you at one time looking into making a replacement for the 49th street rocker panels, or whatever they were called?
If so, seems like you have the makings of a "Vette Daddy Package"
Just think....... fame and fortune.
OK at least fame on CF and within the ZR-1 community.
It's great to see so many hard to get parts attracting those that want and can respond to the opportunity and demand. That is the way buisnesses are built.
Carter, Jerry, Mark, David the master trader, AKA as "David the buyer, installer, de-installer, next part please, pass it on and spread the joy" etc......................
You guys should gather and start your own C-4 Shopping Mall.
Guess I'll have to thank Obama for building that!
Look forward to seeing your finished product(s).
and...........
THANKS!

Marty

Yep. The 49th Street Rocker project was put on hold until recently. Updates coming as new molds are made.

Did you get an Air Cleaner Lid? I've not been able to check yet but thought with the responses you've had maybe the situation is taken care of. I will likely check later today or Sunday AM.
