We took possession of our new C7 test car this week. :) Automatic, carbon roof, red interior (didn't really care too much for, but it was in stock), wheels, and will be getting a factory spoiler installed.






We'll be hauling it out to the track for baseline testing. We'll have cameras set up everywhere, checking for driveline/suspension weakness and tendencies. Suspension/Bushing upgrades will be developed from this type of testing. Also, we want to get a feel for the automatic trans, converter, etc..



From there, we'll be starting on our turbo development. For now, the powertrain will remain 100% stock, including exhaust. We want to get an idea of what someone with a stock C7 can expect with this setup. After extensive testing, and revisions (if necessary), we'll build jigs and look at mass production. We look forward to becoming sponsors on this site and working with you guys. :)

After we get through with baseline testing, we do plan on building the transmission, installing a converter, and developing our own rotating assembly, head studs, cam/valvetrain, and head packages. We will push the envelope and see if we can crack 1000hp or so in the long term.

Stay tuned for updates..

Thanks!

Got underway this week..








Having flanges machined for 1 7/8" tubing. We'll be starting on a set of stainless 4-1 turbo manifolds late next week once they machine shop delivers those. Twin billet Precision billet 62's will be mounted up front, and feed in to a custom air to water intercooler. More pics as the build progresses.
