  • First Corvette ZR1 in the 8s

    Now that the engine computer of the new LT5 has been cracked, we are bound to see lots of very fast Corvette ZR1 on the track. Patrick Rall from Torque News reports that A C7 Corvette ZR1 is in the 8-Second Quarter Mile Range.

    When most high performance cars come to market, it doesn’t take long before we see modified examples making monster power and setting record numbers on the track, but we really haven’t heard much about the C7 Corvette ZR1 being built into thousand-horsepower beasts. That is because General Motors came up with a new “locking” system to keep tuners from adjusting the engine parameters of the new LT5, but last month the code was cracked. As a result, tuning companies are now able unleash more power from the C7 ZR1 and that has already led to a key track number.

    The black Corvette ZR1 in the video below is the first of its kind to run the quarter mile in the 8-second range and it did so with a relatively short list of upgrades.

      Cough cough on the relative short list of mods
      They at least will be needing a complete new fuel system and a lot of up grades for 1000 hp just like the Z06 needs for that level less the bigger blower.
      They are the same block and heads
