[PICS] Vengeance Racing's 1088 Horsepower Corvette Z06


We’ve been fans of Vengeance Racing ever since we saw them leave a massive burnout in a Chevrolet’s dealership parking lot with one of the first Corvette Z06s delivered. Since then, the Georgia tuning shop has continued to make multiple changes and upgrades as they research the deep well of tuning opportunities available on the base 650 hp super car.

[Operation Air Flow] Episode 4: Name That Tune


Late last summer we partnered up with CORSA Performance and Smokey’s Dyno and Performance on our Operation Air Flow project as a way to show some easy ways to get more power out of your Corvette. We began with a CORSA carbon fiber intake on our 2009 C6 and then backed that up with a CORSA Sport performance exhaust system. For Episode 4, we headed back to Smokey’s for a custom ECM tune to help get the most out our freer breathing LS3.

[VIDEO] Late Model Racecraft Restomods a 1958 Corvette with an LS7 V8

There is just something that excites us when we see a well-done Corvette restomod. Some builds like to keep the stock look of the exterior while dropping in a monster V8 under the hood. We’ll this restomod built by the pros at Late Model Racecraft isn’t one of those.

If you were to pull up next to this matte-black 1958 Corvette roadster, you would notice right away there is something special going on there. And when that stoplight turns green and the restomod roars to life and leaves you all slack-jawed while staring at the disappearing taillights, you’ll wonder if that C1 was built just to haunt your dreams.

Last year we had some help upgrading a C6 Corvette with a new CORSA carbon fiber air intake and exhaust system as part of “Operation Air Flow” and the good folks at Smokey’s Dyno in Akron, OH served as our temporary installation headquarters.

Smokey’s recently had another visiting Corvette up on their dyno – a new 2015 Corvette Z06 with the Z07 performance package. Check out the dyno action as well as a little POV driving in the Corvette Z06 from the web magazine Winding Road.

[VIDEO] Hennessey Puts the 2015 Corvette Z06 with a 7-Speed Manual on the Dyno

Hennessey Performance Engineering recently decided to find out how much the 2015 Z06 convertible’s engine loses between crank horsepower and rear wheel horsepower.

According to their dyno figures, the Z06, with the standard 7-speed transmission, produced 570 RWHP, down 12.4 percent from the crank figure of 650 HP. No word on the decline in torque, but based on other tests, we’d figure that number is virtually identical to the RWHP, in other words, 570 ft-lbs.

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.

[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.

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.
