Millennium Yellow C5 Corvette Packs 737 Supercharged Horsepower

By -

Supercharged C5 Corvette

You might mistake this for an average C5 Corvette, but with a built drivetrain, it is far from stock.

The most attractive aspect of the LS1 engine is how well it responds to performance modifications and while scrolling through the C5 Corvettes For Sale section, we came across a car that is a great example of that aspect. Listed for sale by “AtlasInTheGym”, this bright yellow Corvette has an LS-based stroker motor fitted with a big supercharger, sending 737 horsepower to the rear wheels by means of the stock manual transmission with an upgraded clutch.

The Introduction

When the OP listed his stunning supercharged C5 Corvette for sale, he provided the following information.

C5 Corvette Blower

For sale is a built 6.3L supercharger corvette. It made 737hp and 655tq. Still plenty of room to grow. Sales slips for over $10k worth of work and that’s only half the parts. About 3k miles on the build. 95k on the body. Willing to trade for the right camper or dually truck only. Asking $18,000

The OP also included a ton of pictures, many of which show receipts from the build, but there were also a handful of shots of the car itself. We don’t get any full engine bay shots or whole shots of the rear end, but we do get a look at the laminated dyno sheet and a bunch of receipts.

Did we mention the receipts? There are lots of them.

The Big Build

The key feature of this 2001 Corvette is the 383-cubic inch stroker motor under the bright yellow hood. This engine began its life as a 5.3-liter V8 block that was bored and stroked to 6.3 liters or 383 cubic inches. That built block is topped by AFR cylinder heads that are fitted with long tube headers and a fully-upgraded exhaust system.

Of course, the most important component under the hood is the A&A Corvette Ti trim Vortech supercharger, which works with the upgraded fuel system to produce 737 horsepower and 655 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels.

That is significantly more power than the new C7 Corvette ZR1 sends to the wheels, but if you saw this C5 in a parking lot, you might look right past it as being nothing more than your average, stock LS1 car. Meanwhile, this 2001 would likely beat any stock C7 when properly driven.

If you have been on the hunt for a built-and-blown C5 Corvette, this car is hard to look past. It is spotless around the outside and the engine has been properly built to deliver monster power in a street-friendly package.

A lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years, Patrick Rall is highly experienced in the automotive world. He has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now auto journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

“Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500,” says Rall. “He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car: a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16. Meanwhile, I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

“Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group,” adds Rall. “While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

“Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never ‘work’ a day in your life. I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

“My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

“Being based on Detroit, I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.”
