Vengeance Racing Sprinkles Big Power into Grand Sport
Georgia-based tuner builds customer’s C7 Grand Sport around performance kit, maintains drivability.
The Corvette Grand Sport is a pretty great car. You’ve got 460 ponies on tap from the 6.2-liter LT1 V8. You can get up to 60 in 3.6 seconds. The aero and cooling keeps everything all together on the track, and the intuitive cockpit keeps you informed of what you need to know when your bumping through the standard seven-speed manual or optional eight-speed automatic. Not a bad deal, right?
What if you need more, though? Who would you turn to to turn your Grand Sport into a Z06 or a ZR1? Georgia-based tuner Vengeance Racing may have what you need, such as what they’ve done for one customer’s Grand Sport.
According to the video’s description, this particular Grand Sport “was transported in from Maryland by [their] friends at TPM Transport back in late June for the install of a package that would not only improve performance, but also aesthetics under the hood.” The package is none other than VR’s own Stage IV supercharger package, “plus a Corsa Performance exhaust system” and coil pack relocation.
The result is an immaculate engine bay, but it’s the sound and fury that lets the world know this is no ordinary Grand Sport. The Corvette roars with VR’s performance package, obliterating ear drums with 624 horses and 530 lb-ft of torque thundering down upon the dyno.
Of course, it’s not enough for Vengeance Racing to do a dyno run. They also have to make sure it can handle the streets and highways so that its owner can make the 12-hour drive back to Maryland “as soon as the car was finished.” VR certainly has done right by their latest customer, and they look forward to doing more for anyone else who wants their Grand Sport to be hardcore.
