This Katech LT1 427 Durability Test Is Fasinating
What makes this different from other dyno testing is that it’s a test of the Katech LT1’s endurance in harsh environments, rather than just a test for peak performance.
Making 1500 hp in your Z06 is very possible, but your pockets will have to be about as deep and big as your imagination.
Ever wonder what a 1,500 horsepower ZR1 Corvette sounds like on a dyno? Well, this 50-second video clip below will probably be music to your ears.
In practice this Cordes Performance Racing C7 Corvette is pumping out a lot more horsepower than our beloved Z06.
First thing’s first: we know the 2015 Corvette Z06 in bone-stock form makes 585 horsepower and 617 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. Why do we know this? Vengeance Racing just got their hands on a brand-new Z06. They are the first tuner we know of to do so, and they immediately got the car on the dyno once they got it back to the shop. But it’s what they did before they drove the car off the lot that has a lot of people going crazy on Facebook right now.
