We’ve featured the gents from FuelTech previously who have been working on their C8 Corvette for about a year now. FuelTech uses port injection fuel delivery through a custom LT2 intake manifold and a dedicated fuel cell and engine management system to get around the stock C8 Corvette’s encrypted ECU to control their innovative twin-turbo set-up.
Our previous video from them showed their own 2020 Corvette putting out 754 horsepower late last year. Now they are back and have claimed the world record for horsepower on a C8 Corvette with a dyno run of 1075 RWHP. The previous high horsepower benchmark belonged to Emilia Hartford and her twin-turbo Corvette, which set the mark at 1,022 rwhp.
FuelTech’s founder Anderson Dick explains that they were limited in their previous set-up to around 750 hp and 4 psi of boost due to the C8’s stock clutch which would start slipping at those power levels. That’s something we saw previously with the early twin-turbo builds from Late Model Racecraft and Emelia Hartford. A Dodson clutch upgrade from Cicio Performance was performed and with the increase in the clutch disc count and better friction material, FuelTech was able to increase the boost to 21 psi which resulted in a dyno of 1,075 whp and 888 lb-ft of torque.
As part of the video, Anderson also shows off the FT600 engine management system that was integrated into the Corvette’s cup holders. The unit provides an easy-to-read interface showing the car’s RPM, MAP, and dual O2 sensor readings, and it provides a number of customization features at just a touch of a button.
