Unless one is doing some more serious mods that need a tune this is pointless. 11 hp on a Z06 is NOTHING.

Yes. This is very underwhelming. Is it oem on new models? Makes you wonder why they invested resources in designing it.

At least they're honest

It tells you how efficient the stock setup is for a LT1. I would be shocked if any system would add more HP on a stock LT1.

Yeah, sure.

CAIs and oiled filters are basically snake oil. This one is just very expensive snake oil.

It takes brass ***** to claim no more power, but wow, for $500 you get a 30% restriction reduction.
