Corvette Z06 with Rear Mount Turbo

June 24th, 2016

Corvette Z06 with Rear Mount TurboThis is another turbocharged Z06 Corvette – with a unique twist. Instead of the run-of-the-mill front mounted, flow-through turbo, this ‘Vette has the turbo mounted in the rear. This design helps to remove some heat from the engine compartment. The turbocharger is connected to the exhaust near the outlets and an air-to-water intercooler is mounted in the trunk, almost directly above the turbocharger. A second heat-exchanger is located in front of the radiator.

This car is still in the developmental stages and already running in the 9-second range. With a few more events under their belt, this team figures to drop into the 7-second range. This is heads-up drag racing action.
