One of the most annoying flaws of the C5 Corvette relates to the amount of dirt and road debris that accumulates inside the engine bay. This performance hood seal will help to eliminate that build up.
As an added benefit, when this seal is applied, the air intake can operate more efficiently as loss of vacuum pressure is eliminated in the engine compartment. The natural vacuum effect created allows the air intake to collect air at a faster rate. Those Corvette owners with a modified air box or after market intake will need this seal to prevent water from seeping into the air filter potentially damaging the engine internally.
