Twin-Turbo C6 Corvette Z06 Packs 1,300 WHP Punch
With enough cash, you can own this insane C6 Corvette Z06.
When it comes to certain things in life, we just can’t get enough. Potato chips, horsepower, you name it. And even though you’ll inevitably reach the bottom of that air-filled chip bag, unleashing more horsepower is generally as easy as opening up your wallet. But if you head on over to the Corvette Forum Marketplace, you can obtain this insanely powerful C6 Corvette Z06 at a fraction of the build price.
The parts list on this Corvette Z06 reads more like a wish list. It all starts with an LME-built LSX 427 block stuffed with a Callies Dragonslayer crank, Ultra Billet H-beam rods, a custom cam, and Wiseco pistons. CNC-ported Trick Flow 245 heads sit up top, along with an Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake. But of course, the real power adder here comes in the form of twin Precision 6766 turbos. It’s all good enough for 1,345 dyno-proven horsepower.
As you might imagine, this particular Corvette Z06 is more straight-line racer than corner carver. So you won’t find some multi-geared transmission behind that fancy engine. Rather, an RPM-built Powerglide handles the 1-2 shift with no problems. RPM also supplied the Stage 6 rear differential, which is stuffed with 3.42 gears.
Aside from the large beadlocked Billet Specialties rear wheels wrapped in drag radials, there isn’t much on the outside of this Corvette Z06 that clues you in to what’s going on underneath. Just a HiTech carbon fiber hood and Katech spoiler. And that’s about it. But once you spool up those massive turbos, the element of surprise obviously vanishes.
Regardless, we can’t think of a better way to spend our extra cash than this. If you do the math, you won’t find a much better horsepower to dollar ratio anywhere else!
