So youíve got a C5 with 550whp and lost to a C7? C7GS? C7z? Was it a stock C7? Roll? Dig? A 550whp C5 should walk away from from a stock C7z from a roll all day....itís making about that wheel maybe a few more but you got a 300-400lbs weight different easy.

I was on the highway one day. A supercharged c7 gets in front me hammers down. I just watched it walk away lol. So I got a aa kit along with some other things in there now. Methanol kit is coming in the mail. Next year Iíll add the carbon fiber hood,panel,bumpers. No idea yet about what it will dyno but it should be enough. Way more than 550 for sure as it sits untuned with a base file.

A c5 making 550 with a centri should loose to a c7z from a roll. That c5 has a really weak power band if his peak is 550rwhp

This was all before when I just had a vararam intake and all stock parts. The car hasnít seen a mile since the rebuild with the aa kit. Also itís not tuned yet. I am changing out the knock sensors and harness right now. I have no numbers on the build yet. Iím hoping to be putting down somewhere in the range of oh 700 maybe. Stock bottom end.
