So I just heard the Z06 engine has 3 modes, 4 cylinder, 8 cylinder without blower (term they used) and 8 cylinder with blower.
Absolutely!What would be really cool is like the C4 ZR-1 that had the valet key where if you had to give the car to someone to drive you could keep the key and they would only have 200hp. It would be nice if with the Z06 we could say lock it down in 4 cylinder mode so that "if" someone else, even the dealer, had to drive it they wouldn't have access to all 625+ hp.
More likely the internal bypass is computer controlled instead of the usual vacuum/pressure operation.I'm guessing they are going to be using some sort of clutch-activated lower supercharger pulley that can be electronically controlled.
Neat stuff. I wonder how quickly the engagement cycle will be and/or if it will be controlled by throttle position in various modes.
