Default Kong Airfoils?

Noticed a new item on Kong's site, description is sparse and no numbers. Has anyone heard or have firsthand exp? Doing other blower work soon and while things are apart it may make sense ...

I just installed one in a 2010 zr1 I built for someone. Nice looking piece and when you are going for a max effort build we opted for it.

Like he said, for max effort and if you're already in there porting and reinforcing the bricks, go ahead and add.
I have in my combo as well.

The OP is referring to the airfoils, not the divider. I noticed this item on his site as well, just got the divider and sent an email regarding the airfoils as Iím very interested in them. They look to be a nice supplement to the divider and was looking for some test info to confirm that. If anyone has any info about this part Iím anxious to hear it.

There's a single air divider that goes in the middle of the the lid and a pair of air foils that go on the exit side of the bricks. Two different items.

The airfoils are two separate items on one order. The divider that was linked in the video is one item on one order (which I have already). These are two separate items that people mistakenly think are the same piece.

If you happen to baseline before and after on Dyno, I would sure be interested in those numbers. My only upgrades left are blower related and want to ensure I do everything at once.

Unfortunately I wonít be able to baseline as Iím just installing the cooling mods before I do any of the engine power mods (Kong expansion tank, kong welded bricks, kong divider and now kong airfoils).
