The Technology Behind the ACS C8 RQ Intake Ports

The science

The science behind the ACS C8 Corvette RQ Intake Ports is all about efficient air management. These intake ports serve as air scoops on the side of the car, capturing air during motion and directing it into the engine compartment, an area that greatly benefits from cooling. This becomes particularly crucial during high-performance driving, where engine heat management is vital for optimal performance.

By funneling cool, outside air into the engine bay, these intake ports can help maintain a lower ambient temperature around the engine. A cooler engine bay also means less heat soak, a phenomenon where components can absorb excessive heat, negatively affecting their performance and potentially leading to damage over time.

Furthermore, the intake ports' integrated grill outlets facilitate a forced induction of air while simultaneously still enabling hot air to escape and the keep the functionality of the existing vents apart of the rear hatch. This airflow setup helps create a balanced and cooler environment for your Corvette's engine to operate.

The material

The PC Composite material used in our intake ports is second to none. Combining durability, lightweight properties, and thermal resistance, it stands as the optimal choice for engine components. This material contributes directly to the ports' performance, ensuring they can withstand high temperatures and perform optimally in all conditions.
