Twin Turbo Corvette is World’s Quickest C7

January 28th, 2020

I can remember a time, not very long ago, when power adders were a rarity. If you encountered a fellow racer with a turbocharger, a supercharger or even nitrous, it was something that was remembered. Today, everybody has a power adder. They usually have multiple power adders, in fact. I mean, who doesn’t need a kit of nitrous to get out of the hole, a little turbo to scroll you to the big turbo and a big turbo to get you across the finish line? That’s racing in the 21st Century. Our feature car; a beauty of a Chevrolet Corvette Read More

N/A Vette Z06 Takes on Ninja ZX14 – Street Hits

December 18th, 2019

Once in a while, it’s refreshing to see a car that is built without power-adders. Turbochargers, superchargers and nitrous are great, but nothing accelerates quite like an engine built with the sole purpose of producing horsepower. In today’s environment of economical turbo and super chargers, this all-motor ‘Vette is making his mark. The 2009 Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06 has a (LS7) 7.0-liter engine. Internals are stock except for Diamond (14:1) pistons. Cylinder heads, camshaft, intake manifold and fuel rail are all Frankenstein. Fuel injectors are by FIC and the cold air intake is a Vararam. Exhaust headers are Kooks 2-inch Read More

With a 460 cubic-inch motor and a 118-millimeter turbocharger, this potent Chevy is expected to rule the field if he can get all those ponies to the pavement successfully. In addition to the big LSx engine and turbo, this car has Kook’s stainless exhaust headers, a dry-sump oiling system, and it has been swapped to a solid rear axle setup.
