Default Vengeance Racing Builds C7.R Project for Speed Society Raffle Giveaway!

The team over at Speed Society are known across the world for their huge “Performance Car or $50,000 Cash” raffle giveaways, and after the completion of the Redline GTR project, they had decided to purchase a C7 Z06 Corvette for the next raffle. Given the car chosen for the build was a yellow Z06, it was a no-brainer that a “C7.R” inspired livery scheme would be the choice for a vehicle wrap, as well as a set of custom ADV.1 wheels to really set off the aesthetics on the car. However, the problem at hand for Speed Society was who to choose to install the performance package for the car, and the solution was Vengeance Racing.

We were approached with the opportunity to fly out our owner Ron Mowen, lead technician Sean Parker, and tuner Mike Carnahan for one week to complete what would become one of the most powerful and insanely fast rides to come through the Speed Society doors. We quickly gathered the parts together that we knew would not only make a huge power number, but be something that anyone that won the raffle would thoroughly enjoy. For this, we modified our typical Stage 4 performance package to come up with a unique combination of performance parts that once installed would offer not only peak performance, but reliability and drivability from this manual transmission equipped Z06. The parts included:
  • Halltech Cold Air Induction System
  • Griptec 2.30” Supercharger pulley
  • Innovators West Overdriven Crankshaft Balancer
  • Vengeance Racing CNC LT4 Cylinder Heads ported and build by Late Model Engines
  • Vengeance Racing Cam Kit Plus
  • Late Model Engines VVT Delete Kit featuring their Billet Front Cover.
  • Vengeance Racing Ported snout
  • Kooks Longtube Header System
  • AlkyControl Dual Nozzle programmable methanol system

With everything installed, the car laid down a strong 718rwhp on the Speed Society Mustang Dyno, and had a sound at idle that put a smile on everyone’s face in the building. There are countless LS/LT performance shops between the San Diego Speed Society HQ and our facility in Cumming, GA, and we were more than honored than to be granted the opportunity to be a part of this build. There were 6 “webisodes” filmed during our time building this car covering the project from start to finish that will be launching on the Speed Society pages as the car is being raffled, and YOU can enter for a chance for this C7.R project to land in your garage as well.

My question is how do you address the heat from these power adders, especially for those that track their cars frequently on road courses?

I instruct for numerous clubs and temp-wise my bone stock 2018 Z06 Z07 M7 seems to be at the threshold running aggressively at VIR.

When I'm running hard, and the ambient temps are hot, I see oil in the high 260's and coolant in the high 220s.

Have never hit reduced power mode (thank God), so the cooling changes GM made over the years have been effective.

Would love to put a build together like I did with my C7 Z51, but the LT1 & LT4 are very different thermal animals, and alky doesn't seem plausible for road course usage.

How are you effectively running meth on a car built for road course?

We have done the Dewitt oil cooler / HX / radiator upgrades on a few cars with good results, but everyone uses the cars differently and in different conditions. Tikt, LG, and several others have different fascias and other cooling upgrades as well, but whether or not it's necessary for a particular car is really dependent on the driver and how they're putting it through the paces. The methanol injection system is purely to help with IAT cooling and octane increase with the higher boost levels, especially on the 91 fuel we had to use during the build in California. This build was designed around a multi-purpose vehicle that could make bit power without going crazy and something that anyone in the country could use. If the end user plans to heavily track the car, then other modifications would be recommended, but not always necessary.

The car wasn't "built for road course" but could definitely be used there, and many do use methanol injection on track focused vehicles. The livery was just something chosen by Speed Society for the cool factor, and as mentioned above, if the end owner wants to use it specifically on track then there are other modifications available to help further with cooling also. This is also not a "meth dependent" combination like you typically see on the big power builds on the forum.
