We all know that Corvettes make a lot of power stock. But since when is stock power ever enough for the true Corvette enthusiast?
Corvette owners are always on the quest for just a little more sound out of the exhaust tips. To get that ever-so-sweet sound and the seat-of-your-pants rush that follows from your C6, Zip recommends a set of Kooks Long Tube Headers. They will help bring back that famous rumble from the 60′s and you’ll see upwards of an 25-30 horsepower increase at the rear wheels!
So what does that type of an increase really look like? Consider this: if your Corvette has 400 horsepower stock at the flywheel, you’ll enjoy a new rating of about 440-450 horsepower. What could be better than that? You get more HP than a 1967 big block Corvette and a distinctive growl while maintaining more than 20 mpg. It’s the best of both worlds!
Follow along with Zip’s technical article “2005-2013 C6 Corvette Kooks Header Installation” as we install a set of Kook’s 1-7/8 headers on a 2005 Daytona Orange C6.
No doubt about it – this is a tough install all the way around. We do not recommended this project for a novice do-it-yourself weekend warrior. But our article offers step-by-step installation instructions with photos that will help you get the job done. It’s well worth your time and hard work. Kooks headers are second to none when it comes to modifying a 6th generation Corvette. If it’s state-of-the-art sound and performance you’re after, you can’t go wrong with Kooks.
