[VIDEO] Another 2015 Corvette Z06 Hits the Dyno and Shows 572 RWHP

Yesterday when we posted the dyno graph from Vengeance Racing which showed the new C7 Corvette Z06 generating 585 rear wheel horsepower and 617 lb-ft of torque, we speculated that more dyno tests would be needed to see if Chevrolet was sandbagging conservatively estimating the power numbers for the new supercharged super car.

We now have a new video from the guys at High Tech Corvette which features a black 2015 Corvette Z06 on a Mustang 1100 dynometer and those results were equally impressive.

2015 Corvette Z06 on the Dyno Shows 585 RWHP

Last week an Arctic White Corvette Z06 was picked up by the guys from Vengeance Racing who proceeded to do a massive burnout in the dealer’s lot before taking their new super car back to their shop in Cumming, GA.

Once the Z06 was safely ensconced in the tuner’s garage, it was immediately placed on the dynojet to see what its baseline horsepower and torque numbers were.

[Operation Air Flow] Episode 3: Dyno Time for our CORSA Exhaust and Intake Install

It’s time to button up Operation Air Flow. In Episode 1 we installed a CORSA carbon fiber intake on our 2009 Corvette coupe with the help of our friends at Smokey’s Dyno and Performance. Then in Episode 2 they helped us bolt on a CORSA Sport performance exhaust system. Prior to each episode we ran our C6 on the dyno at Smokey’s so we could compare the stock horsepower and torque numbers to those after each component was installed. Now it’s time to share the results.

[VIDEO] Hennessey Shows Off the HPE650 Corvette Stingray

Most of us will never have the chance to drive, much less own, a supercar like the 2014 Hennessey Performance HPE650 supercharged Stingray or the upcoming 2015 Corvette Z06.

But while we’re dreaming, let’s go ahead and compare what we know about these two dream cars and try to come up with a conclusion about which one we’d take.

If you want exclusivity, then the Hennessey might be your best option. Only 100 of the cars will be produced, and with an engine tune that cranks out 650 horsepower – 25 more than expected in the Z06, the Hennessey definitely will have its fans.

[VIDEO] Late Model Racecraft's Twin Turbo 1100-HP Corvette Stingray

It was just a couple of weeks ago that we showed the video from Vengeance Racing in which they claimed to have the first C7 Corvette Stingray on the planet with 1,000 hp. Now we got another Stingray to show that makes even more power thanks to guys at Late Model Racecraft.

I really like how the Corvette Stingray sounds on these dyno videos. Like this one from Late Model Racecraft after a Heads/Cam swap. With those upgrades, the car is pushing 470 rwhp. Headers coming next.

[VIDEO] LG Motorsports Adds Long Tube Headers to 2014 Corvette Stingray

Now that the tuners have their hands on the new 2014 Corvette Stingray, we’re starting to see the aftermarket world works its magic. LG Motorsports has a Z51-equipped Corvette Stingray and they’ve already added a set of their popular Long Tube headers to the LT1. Still equipped with the stock GM tune and air assembly, LG saw a gain of 30 hp and 45 ft-lbs torque.

[VIDEO] Pfadt Planning P58 Edition Corvette Stingray

Like some other well-known tuners and performance shops, Pfadt Race Engineering has been itching to get their hands on the new 2014 Corvette Stingray. Pfadt has big plans for the C7 Stingray with a new line of parts and a performance upgrade package they’re calling the Pfadt P58. The package is expected to boost the LT1 from 460 hp to approximately 580 hp.

But before all that can move forward, they first needed to pick up the car.
