C1 Corvette Crankcase Ventilation Systems
A crankcase ventilation system helps to reduce pressure under the hood of a C1 Corvette by getting rid of blowby gases traveling through engine connections. Venting harmful gases before they get a chance to reenter the intake can aid in function and potentially prolong the life of your first-gen engine.
Top Flight Automotive sells C1 Corvette crankcase ventilation technology made by Eddie Motorsports. Use CNC-machined valve cover breathers with a polished or black finish. We stock C1 ventilation systems that modernize the appearance of the engine bay while helping to keep horsepower levels consistent.
C1 Exhaust Upgrades
Help your first-gen Corvette breathe without restrictions. Our catalog features exhaust upgrades from trusted manufacturers like Hooker, Granatelli, Auto Accessories of America and Design Engineering Inc. Incorporating an aftermarket exhaust header is one of the most popular upgrades to make on a C1 Corvette. Increase the flow of exhaust gases with a painted or unpainted Hooker exhaust header.
Keep your stock engine and reduce back-pressure by creating more room for gases to leave engine cylinders and travel through exhaust connections.
