The current-generation Chevrolet Corvette — yes, the one with the engine in the back — punches well above its price class in terms of performance. Plus you can see the engine beneath the rear glass of the fixed-roof models (the engine is covered for the convertible models). Lingenfelter Performance Engineering now offers the high-performance look of carbon fiber — and more power — with the new Performance Design Carbon pTR Intake Manifold for the 2020 and new Corvette. Lingenfelter claims gains of 25 horsepower at the rear wheels, but using the company’s extra-cost throttle body and the available Corsa-brand exhaust system. The top section of the manifold has five layers of carbon fiber and the lower is constructed of glass-reinforced nylon. Lingenfelter says the unit was designed to work with the stock LT2 engine, and the $2,100 manifold package includes the “appropriate” conversion parts. Note that the manifold does not fit convertible models. Get more details at
