Lingenfelter did do a few but I don't think any owners here have one. The last I knew about was the red car that was recently at one of the auctions. I think Lingenfelter did more turbo Zs than anybody else but I could be wrong. Callaway also did a few.

There are a few around, as mentioned before, Lingenfelter & Callaway did some.
I'm pretty sure Corey H has done a couple, Mark H has probably done a couple.
Ron H did a Raptor system a few years ago on his Z.
So they are around, probably not more than 10 or 15, but they exist.

Not cheap to do, so not many out there but its been done as said

Diz what are you looking for you dont seem happy with yours.
Get a Dart little M, tall deck etc build big and put some boost to it!

Or RO7 SB2.2 9s easy NA

Seems like you dig the C4 platform just not enough oomph.

nobody has ever produced a TT 415 (ZR-1 LT-5)

biggest I believe is a 385 by Lingenfelter. Lingenfelter built 4 TT LT-5's. (3 were 368 and 1 was a 385)

Cheers

David

There are 0 415 TT, The biggest TT out there is Will Barrett's 385.

There is 1 single turbo "368"
Three LPE "368" Twin Turbo
1 LPE "385" TT
1 SGC "374 CU IN, That car just went through LPE so I do not know what the current displacement.
3 Callaway TT, I do Believe the Displacement was not changed from 350'
1 Supercharged ZR-1
1 "372 CU IN Raptor.
1 Raptor currently being completed, I do believe that is still a 350'
1 Mallet "350" TT

If anyone knows of any other builds please let me know.

I believe that is a misprint, this is actually Paul Dehnert's TT, a 368. Think you'd be hard pressed to get the 385 out of Will's hands; he chased the car's owner (a very wealthy Middle Eastern man) for years before acquiring it.

That's right. Didn't Paul also have a 415 AND a stock one too? All RED if I remember correctly.

Default denerts TT car

is was for sale in Fla and I was in contact with a few folks looking at it.

The new owner is a little too proud of it price wise and is looking to just flip it for a bootie. Not going to happen. We all know what it sold for and the haven't respected nor do they know of what they have.

Proceed with caution. It's a shame to see the car go south in comparison to when Paul owned it, and the folks that inspected it were not pleased with either the gouge job or the poor cleanliness of the car.

I cringed when it sold, it was the ultimate deal of the century.

Default Woods Rotex car

Not much,

Many years back this car was at the gathering. The rotex is a very compact and efficient cent blower mostly used on VW and BMW applications. It's flow limited to about 600+ HP.

Nice solution, Ron and Randy (ron is gone now) were running about 5 PSI on a stock 95 in really nice shape.

I believe they were still in process of refining the tune under boost. Not sure more than the prototype were ever produced.

Not a bad setup, but within reach of a NA build, so it wasn't viable for me.

Now with the modern Megasquirt and a coil on plug solution the valley can be freed up for a LT4 style blower but packaging is still a huge headache.

Twin turbos are more viable from that standpoint as you aren't messing with the accessory drives.

After what others and myself have spent to build a 6-700hp LT5, I would have welcomed that SC kit for sure. The issue in my mind is engine managment, come up with good cam sensor and run pro-efi or holley setup and things would get much better for boost on these cars. The other big problem we face now is that 7-800hp is not much, i have built afew DD cars in the last six months that made over 800whp. I'm not going down without a fight but in comes in the name of Nitrous.

The Raptor which is being completed at Corey Henderson's (which is mine) is a 368.
