Just wanted to say i installed the Halltech Stinger intake last night that i purchased from a forum vendor. After about 66 miles of test driving last night, to work and back today, and then just a little bit ago in 86 degree temps.... all i can say is damn! This system really woke up my car! I had a west coast filter on before w/ the factory air bridge so i wasnt sure what type of gains to expect. But i notice from the start the car just seems to want to lunge forward, and it sure pulls hard all the way up through the range, not that i broke the law or anything ;)

I did have a few "oh **** is that a cop behind me" moments on the highway, but it turned out not to be the law dogs just granny in a big crown vic. :surprised And needless to say my traction control system came on a few times, also i hit a mean second gear scratch on the freeway onramp that made me smile real big. I think my car loves this thing as much as i do!

Installation was pretty good, though it took me probably more than an hour to install since im not the most handy guy in the world. I did have to modify the black rubber A.I.R. hose that attaches to the top of the warhead filter because in factory form it kept pulling on the elbow so it didnt seal correctly.

After all is said and done, the red airbridge as well as the filter itself looks great and performs great as well. So much for my decent gas mileage...for now anyways... :D

:cheers:

Your post just seriously swayed my decision. I was torn between the Halltech and the WCC Hurricane intake. The halltech has great reviews, guess its time to make that order! Enjoy your newly awakened vette! :thumbsup:

Wow. First let me say that i did not have the complete Hurricane setup f/ West Coast, i just had the West Coast filter that i believe they use in the Hurricane setup. If that makes any sense. So i cant accurately compare against what you were looking to buy. But comparing the west coast filter against the Halltech Warhead filter, the Halltech is quite a bit bigger. My friend has a Blackwing and its even bigger yet, but i went with the Halltech because for the money it came with the airbridge and filter and as you say the reviews all seem very positive.

Here is a link to Corvette Garage where i ordered mine from, they seemed like pretty good guys and constantly kept me updated on the status of the order. http://www.corvettegarage.com/product/halltech-stinger-intake-system-for-c5-and-z06-corvette.html


Best of luck to you.

The DC Z, with just headers, cat back and Halltech Stinger puts down 393 RWHP. And, I think I just picked up weight with the cat back and cool sound, not really any HP.

Headers....now thats worth waiting for! Just think how good the car will respond with the headers in the cooler temps. :partyon:

Great numbers. I guess thats why im in no hurry for a cat back, if the gain is minimal especially for what most cat back systems cost. I kind of like the stock tips even if they are small.

I do want a custom tune though, and there is a guy in my area that people seem to travel from other states to get him to tune their vettes. I guess he might be next on my mod list.

Im curious what type of numbers im making right now with the stinger & the predator.

Need your car back up here for a day of R&D for our new Killer Bee AAIS for the C5.

We have Katech's endorsement of the Killer Bee AAIS, after they made 12 HP 11 ft. lbs torque on the Street Attack Z06. Here is their dyno comparing the Killer Bee AAIS vs. the stock Z06 AIS:





We have a Killer Bee AAIS for the C6 which requires reflashing the LS7 MAF code for proper calibration, and our new 103mm MAF sensor. 15 RWHP on the C6.

No need for programming on the 06-08 Z06 or 08 C6 LS3.

The beauty of the Killer Bee conversion on the C5 will be the loss of the crappy Delphi 85 MAF sensor.

This is what goes in its place:
