Want additional power for your C7 Corvette? Of course you do! Max Energy Tuning extracts every bit of energy possible out of every molecule of fuel, giving your Corvette additional power at both part-throttle and wide-open throttle.
In order to increase engine efficiency, horsepower and torque, Hypertech’s engineers first optimize the spark and fuel curves over the entire rpm band. With the additional power and optimized transmission functions, drivers use less fuel to accelerate and maintain cruising speeds without the torque converter un-locking and transmission down-shifting to a lower gear.
Hypertech Max Energy Power Programmer for your 2014 Corvette features:
Optimized engine tuning for premium octane – +34hp and + 19tq
Lower or Raise top-speed limiter to match speed rating on high-performance tires… Continue reading

1984-1987 C4 Corvettes commonly fall victim to headlight motor failure. The result: your corvette “winks” with one headlight up, one down. Frustrating, we know. And slightly embarrassing.
Here’s the problem: straight from the factory, the 1984-1987 headlight motors used nylon gears to rotate the Corvette headlight assembly. With the weight of the headlight assembly, the nylon gears eventually strip where they come in contact with the metal worm gear. Chevrolet recognized this problem and redesigned the motor for the 1988 Corvette, but that didn’t do much to help the early C4′s.
Here’s the solution: new Bronze Headlight Gears that won’t strip. You don’t need a whole new headlight motor, you just need to replace the gears. Once you replace the nylon gears with bronze, your headlight motors will operate as they were designed and you’ll be able to expect many years of reliable service.
The replacement procedure is not very difficult and can be done in about 45 minutes per side. To make it even easier, Zip has documented the entire process for you.
Read our technical article 1984-1987 Corvette Headlight Motor Gear Replacement and we’ll walk you through the replacement with step-by-step instructions and photos… Continue reading
Back when the 1973-1982 C3 Corvettes were rolling out of the factory and into the hands of eager owners, many do-it-yourself weekend warriors went straight to work removing the factory installed emission system because it robbed horsepower. We didn’t think we’d ever really need it, so we just threw the whole smog system on the junk pile.
Boy, were we wrong!
Today, C3 show cars are REQUIRED to have the smog system if they were originally equipped that way. In addition, an intact system is needed to get the car registered or to renew license plates in some cities and states. Come to find out, an operating smog system is very important afterall!
But as owners decided to undertake this re-installation project, they found that most smog systems were hard to locate and very expensive.
Your mission….should you choose to accept it….is to install the emission system on your 1973-1982 Corvette in just one afternoon. Continue reading
