Corvette packs 674 rear wheel horsepower with help from Lingenfelter.

Are you thinking about buying a C7 Corvette Z06, but concerned that 650 horsepower simply isn’t enough? Are you uncomfortable doing the upgrades yourself or picking a shop to do the work? Last but not least, are you interested in buying a lightly-used Z06 with all of the modifications performed by a well-known and reputable shop?

If you answered “yes” to all three of those questions, there is a C7 Z06 in the Corvettes For Sale section that might just be your ideal Chevy supercar.

Easy Power Gains for this C7Z

This 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was posted in the Corvettes For Sale section by “SUNRISE1” and the thread has all of the information a potential buyer could need. The OP included 23 pictures, including shots of the car from every angle, inside and out, as well as a look at each piece of crucial paperwork relating to the build process. This includes the work orders for some sound system upgrades, the Lingenfelter modifications under the hood and the meth injection and tune from Vengeance Racing.

The performance upgrades begin with a Lingenfelter Stage 1 package for the C7 Z06. This adds a new dry sump crank damper, a 15% overdrive pulley for the supercharger, a 100-millimeter idler pulley, a proper supercharger belt and all of the fasteners needed to install everything. There is also a Halltech Stinger air intake system and the car was initially tuned for 93 octane pump gas with an HP Tuners system.

Afterwards, a methanol injection setup was added by Vengeance Racing, followed by a dyno tune from that well-known shop on E85. With the final build, this Corvette made 674 horsepower and 694 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels with the blended fuel.

Other Features

While the main attraction of this 2018 Corvette Z06 1LT is the worked engine, this car also has the standard 8-speed automatic transmission, factory navigation and an aftermarket JL Audio Stealth Box with two 10-inch subwoofers that work with the factory Bose speaker system.

Finally, this car has just over 3,700 miles on the odometer and a price of $67,000. When you consider the mileage and the modification list, that is a great deal on a turn-key C7 Z06 with 674 rear wheel horsepower.

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.”
