Default Welp, pulled the trigger. Part 2 reborn!

For those of you that followed my first thread "well pulled the trigger" know that i had a 2017 grand sport, bought a maggy and long tube headers and x pipe, installed it and totaled the car a week and a half later. Didn't respect the car at all. First time I drove anything other than a truck since I had my 03 cobra back in 03. Learned a hard lesson.

I was able to remove all the parts off of that car. I bought a used 2017 z06 with 8k miles on it. Found the adapters I needed to install the LT1 maggy on my Z06 (thank you edgyette). Now I'm about to install them on the z. I can't wait to get this done. Definitely buying 18" replica wheels and installing 345/35/18 mickeys on it. the cup 2's suck, especially at 42 degrees, but then again most tires would.

I like to think that I had a hand in moving this stuff over At least, planting the seed.

Congrats man, that will be a beast! Have you thought about Toyo r888r's? I have heard good things.

That is a great outcome @samwint77 . You have the best in the world now. With the forged internals on the Z, you can crank up the boost right from the beginning. You will end up being limited by the cam on the stock Z. I can't recall for sure, but a buddy did something similar and I think he was running out of fuel in the 650whp range. Can't wait to see your results. If you add a cam and a little alky injection, I bet you can get that baby into the mid 800's pretty easy....

WAIT! I take that all back. Try driving the car without wrecking for a while. :-)

Yes you did, I'd have sold it without you telling me that. Edgyvette was great, and sold me the adapter plates. Got them in 3 days. I'm buying some replica 18 x 12 z06 wheels and mounting the mickey thompson 345/35/18s on them. Should hook pretty good.

The great thing is I had already bought the 75mm pulley, so now I can install it and see what she does. I'm trying to line up getting it back in the shop now.

cant wait to see. I have the 75mm pulley running 12psi on my car...the 70mm went to 14psi and had bad belt slip (but didnít matter because Inwas out of injector).

The 75mm with a manual transmission will be right in the 800whp range on e85. I donít think you will be able to run that much boost without a cam or alky injection. I think without the cam, you will be octane limited at about 650-700whp with the stock cam. If you add a cam and e, you will be able to run in the 800ís pretty easy.

Heads and cam package will be the next thing on the radar after this gets installed. Probably gonna do a stall as well. I want a large cam, I know it has its draw backs, but still want it.
