Thanks for checking out my ride. I have a 2001 Z06 Corvette that I had supercharged up at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE). This is an Eaton roots blower that (along with my other mods) has increased the rear wheel hp to 495. With a 15% powertrain loss, thats about 574 hp at the flywheel.
You may also notice that the nose is different, this is the Tiger Shark nose clip.
Here are a few pictures of the blower installation -
Here's John Lingenfelter admiring his work.
A shot of the blower without the hood.
Here it is on the dyno. Thats Graham Behan doing the dyno tuning. He is the former GM / Lotus engineer that designed and built the LT5 motor for the Corvette ZR1. He now works up at LPE.
Once she was done, we were ready to head out. As you can see, John works on quite a few Vette's...
Other modifications I have done include a LG Motorsports G2 long tube headers and X Pipe, Borla Stingers, Hurst shifter, Lingenfelter GT2 camshaft, 50 lb injectors, 160 degree thermostat, upgraded fuel pump, aluminum flywheel, spec 2 / 3 hybrid clutch, balanced and blue printed the motor, intercooled the supercharger, forged pistons, and a Blackwing Intake. I also have a 500 watt Bose system in the car.
The above and below pictures are of the car up at the National Corvette Museum.
The car was the centerfold in December 2002 "Corvette Fever" magazine.
Here is a shot of the car on the dyno with my CCW rims. I have 11.5 X 18 on the back and 10 X 18 on the front. I went with Pilot Sports, I got 335 30 18 for the rears and 275 35 18 for the fronts. I also have an extra set of back tires with G-Force drag radials for the track. I can hook up a lot better now.
Here is the dyno sheet. 495 wheel hp works out to about 574 flywheel hp.
Here is my other toy, a 2005 Lotus Elise.
The car is Laser Blue with a red leather interior. I ordered it with the Touring and Sports packages.
And here is my daily driver (Can't really drive the other two in the rain!) Its a 2004 GTO I have already installed a K & N filter, Stainless Works headers, Corsa cat back system and nitrous dry kit running a 100 shot. Mike Norris tuned the car in Orlando and I ran a 12.3 at 112 in it. The stripes are painted, not stickers.
Finally, here is my last car, a 2005 Mini Cooper S. Actually its my wife's but I bought it so I guess technically its mine too. She can't drive a manual so I had to buy the automatic. :p It has the paddle shifter so I can at least drive it kind of like a manual...
Thanks for stopping in!
