Default 2300 Club!

I know I have many PM's from guys getting them. Asking about the tune. Many other members have them or are getting them..
I just finished going about 4k this summer across country and got a lot of play time during the 10 months or so with the M7. Really improves the car.
My second 2300 is in the box. Looking to start that install on my A8 by the first of the month or so.


You can see the size difference of the rotor pac and the charge coolers. Shocked to see the over 5 pounds less weight when adding the large factory rubber removed under the blower as
well.

We went out for a rally last week with 2 huracans 1 performante 1000hp mid 9 second hellcat multiple modded vipers GTR TT R8 etc etc.

my buddy's 2300 Long Tube white A8 Z06 left everyone in the dust.. . Out of 22 cars it was the fastest by a large margin. Car runs 9.7 @140 on pump gas.

the 2300 runs cooler and delivers better power at every point in the range. It's a game changer for this already beast of a car. Chevy's biggest goof was that little 1700 spinning to high death. even more so than inadequate track cooling because the 2300 makes this car as fast if not faster (because it can be tuned) than the new ZR1...


That carbon 65 has same mods but its an m7. Hampers it's ability at the shifts to keep up with the A8. Same guy built both. These cars are animals with the 2300.. it's what i will do should i keep mine past the warranty. I've driven it numerous times and like i said it is better all around. So much better.

I just ordered one with the 103mm snout as an experiment (test fitting.) to see if it will work with my WXM LT4 SPI rail adapters, but there is a 4 week lead time to get the 2300.
I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to use it yet when it comes in though.
If it does not fit I'll just put it back in the box or sell it.

Hopefully it does fit.
Got the cad measurements from Magnuson and my tuner measured one of the OEM blower manifolds and it looks like the port injection rails will clear with about 1/8" on one side and 1/4" on the other.
I'm curious to see what it will make if it does fit.
I'm currently around 760whp on E85 and over 700whp on pump gas. (no meth/nitrous) on a ported OEM blower with a 103mm snout/TB. (and a bunch of other mods...)

We have you covered when you need a lowside fuel system.

Without a cam and assuming we are talking LT4 and not LT1 systems...mid to upper 600's.
The max RWHP supported by the stock LT4 fuel system with a cam lobe (not stock I know.) to help out seems to be somewhere in the lower 700's. (less than 750.)
You can get more by doing a low side system. (also not stock.)

Oh well, I already placed the order last Thursday through my tuner who is a Magnuson dealer.
They have to abide by MAP pricing.... it was only like a $500 difference.

Exciting for sure the addition of the 2300. You do NEED the supporting mods of long tube headers A good intake like an Halltech or AFE I would also do the ZR1 tb for 260.00 if you have connections then a good tune. My M7 with those mods is lighting fast and limited by how well you can drive it and the high 1st gear. If you want the car for the strip do the A8 .
I did an 1/4 pass on a marked concrete strip no timer just a a marked off 1/4 mile with my M7 no traction start burning rubber a good 1/8 mile trapped right at 140 over the measured and marked 1/4 mile line. I would lay waste to about any stock car period! Can't wait to have the A8 with the same mods completed soon.I would say no doubt faster than the stock big brother. More power and lighter.

this is good to hear. Is there a cookie cutter tune for the mod which would be the magnuson upgrade and Cai? That seems to be a real wild card with this upgrade. Taking a chance with some knucklehead that professes to be an expert that has never tuned a c7z with a magnuson. Where I live in the middle or the US there is no-one that could reliably do this.

Too bad magnuson doesnít offer this with the package. Just bolt on the supercharger and upload the tune to the car and your ready to roll.

as I drive miss piggy more and more I can tell there is a real beast under the 1700 somewhere. Itís like a sprinter being forced to breath through one nostril with a cocktail straw.

IDK if the owners is on here or not, but AMP out of Dallas did a near max effort build using the 2300. He put up 858/836 with his a8. From what I have seen on here, and limited info outside of here this is seems to be the current highest WHP 2300 C7.

They do offer that you can just buy the blower and the canned tune but you end up at 629 rwhp (from there website) with out the supporting mods of longtubes and intake tune to allow it to breathe. That is where the bigger power is the combo of mods. You are right the tune is very important I feel lucky to have a good one.

I have a 2016 Z06. M7. 2300 heartbeat, kook LT, AFE, X tank, 5% lower. I love the 2300, it runs great runs cooler. Even with the Stock stat engine temp is below 190, never gets over 205 in traffic. Oil 185-200. Itís a conservative tune because I need a better low side pump which I havenít been able to find. My other choices are a boost a pump or an aux pump. We tuned on a 100 degree day. So getting good number was difficult.
My AFR was steady at 11.77, timing at 16 degrees, and boost just under 14 lbs. we still managed 655/690 spinning the tires on the rollers. My high side pump was steady but the low side went from 71psi to 41psi at the end of the runs. Thatís on 91 octane. On a cooler day with a pump fix things should be better

Cool I'm adding the 5 percent ATI as well 91 sucks even the Oregon 92 is better than the 91 I was using all summer. Had to learn to spike it with race fuels and e 85 never thought I see the day.
Love the 2300 as well!

Depends on your supporting mods. I have seen 750 plus rwhp on the stock systems with the right supporting mods.
Also the 2019's should do a little better they have a better low side fuel pump.
Mine came up with 673 Mustang dyno numbers not out of fuel yet.

IMO The 2300 is part of the equation you want a good Hi flow intake like a Halltech or AFE. The ZR1 TB is runs 260.00 if you have a parts friend. Then I like the AR headers coated in 2 inch w/ cats.
Then the all important great tune!

Just a note for anyone running a max effort 2.3, the heat generated is killing the cats on my ARH headers. My car is making a bit over 800 wheel and is in the middle of an unplanned rebuild but in the process it was noticed that the cats are just about gone so we are going to delete them and tune accordingly. I tried to keep the front cats just for a bit more street friendly manners (noise, smell, etc.) but as I pretty much only drive my car on a race track, it just isn't as well suited.

I think the difference in use makes a huge difference. Since you are pretty much only track use is the reason. Don't understand about saving the front cats? AR headers have the just the one set cats further back in the X-pipe and. Also I am not max effort either not sure if or how meth use affects them don't remember if your using it or not.
. I have been seeing long life out of AR cats. I bought a set of them and ran them on 1 car. Pulled them off and put them on another like 30k or more of use . I have 20k or more on my current set
and no issues I'm aware of. Street use I like having the cats. New set coming has cats. I did a direct compare of Kook's cats and AR and the AR are higher flow than the Kook's
