Lingenfelter: Corvette's New LT1 Engine Will Challenge Tuners

Tuners have had a field day with the LS family of V8 engines from General Motors, improving their performance levels to pull upwards of an amazing 1,000-hp from them in some cases.

Now that the LT1 motor has upped the ante to at least 450-hp in the base Stingray for the 2014 model year, tuners should be able to get even higher numbers than they are with the current LS1 motor, right?

Eager gearheads would do just about anything to make their ride stand out from the crowd. Enter customizer Les Dunham and the Corvette Caballista. His Dunham Coach Motor Car Company built just 50 Caballistas between 1977 and 1982. The example seen here is a later model based on 1982 Collector Edition Corvette.

[VIDEO] Project Sacrilege: World's First Automatic Corvette ZR1

Really high performance sports cars like the Corvette ZR1 and Z06 always seem to come only with six-speed transmissions.

But not anymore.

On a forum post on Camaro5.com earlier this week, Howard Tanner, owner of Redline Motorsports, which bills itself as South Florida’s premier EFI performance shop, announced that his crew has been working hard to develop the world’s first ZR1 Corvette with an automatic transmission.
