Corvette enthusiasts know that perhaps the easiest way to get more power from an engine is to add a supercharger and some other go fast parts. But that may not necessarily be the best way if you’re planning on turning your Corvette into a dedicated racer.
Katech Performance is showing a different route performance junkies and dedicated racers can take with the Stingray’s Gen 5 LT1 V8 by going back to the naturally aspirated 427 “stroker” design which Katech says its capable of producing upwards of 703 horsepower and 625 lb-ft on 93 octane fuel.
Corvette fans know that the 2015 Corvette Stingray is one of the great bargains of all time when it comes to performance per dollar, even at the manufacturers suggested retail price. The National Corvette Museum (NCM) will give someone the most incredible bargain of all—the performance of a 2015 Stingray coupe for $10. That’s right, for a mere $10 some lucky person will get the keys to a Torch Red Corvette Stingray coupe in what must be the best performance bargain ever.
If that 650 horsepower Corvette Z06 isn’t powerful enough for you, you might want to check out this upgrade from the folks at Late Model Racecraft.
They’ve just released a video showing this beautiful Velocity Yellow Z06 that they have upgraded to coax out 743 wheel horsepower, making it what might be the most powerful C7 Corvette Z06 tested on a dyno so far.
Have you seen the Gold Digger videos where a guy stands next to a really expensive car and asks women if they want to go for a ride? Those that say yes are assumed to be “gold diggers” as they think the guy has some deep pockets. But put that same guy next to a beat up Honda Accord and he gets rejected every time.
That’s the premise of this video only with a twist. A pretty girl is the protagonist and the bait car is new Torch Red C7 Corvette Convertible.

Sometimes a sad story does have a happy ending.
You may recall the poor fellow whose 2015 Corvette Z06 suffered a blown engine the day after Christmas, of all days, after he had enjoyed driving the supercar for just 891 miles.
But don’t fret any longer for Lawdogg149, as he is known on Corvette Forum.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray and the 2015 Corvette Z06 have won plenty of awards over the past few months.
The Z06 added to that stack of trophies this week by being judged the “Sexiest Vehicle” in the Detroit News’ Readers’ Choice awards for the 2015 North American International Auto Show.
While modding Corvettes is pretty common here in the States, it’s also a phenomenon that happens across the globe as owners search for more power. One such tuner located in western Austria is O.CT Tuning who recently went to work on the C7 Corvette Stingray.
