  • PINK ELEPHANTS:

    If the Corvette Team reviews this thread, Then on October 26th they will come out smoking with the low-down about the Tq curb. They will certainly address the concerns about Tq and low end Tq in creep and crawl driving and low speed situations. So, I look forward to that.

    And vibrations, 1st order, 2nd order, and 3rd order if there is such a thing. Pink Elephants.

    The Z06s in the videos from around the Nurburing are seen accellerating from start and in low speed situations on public roads. They appear to be full of thrust in ordinary traffic. They appear to be spring-loaded and ready to leap. That a little to go on.

    • electroVette what is this gated intake mani you speak of?

        Normally an intake manifold’s volume is chosen for its resonance frequency, which optimizes intake charge frequency for a narrow rpm range.

        A gated intake manifold has multiple chambers separated by movable gates, so by opening or closing various gates the effective volume can be changed, and with it the intake resonance frequency. This optimizes the intake manifold for a wider range of rpms.

        Over the years a few posts have appeared on that other forum with claims of a radical intake manifold on the ZO6 engine. I wish I’d saved them because I can’t find them now, but they hinted at an “active” manifold that may be able to vary its internal volume. The poster claimed to have seen a fully dressed DOHC V8 destined for the ZO6.

            Well that is fun. Imagine that with variable length intake runners (believe some Ferrari's had this OEM) and individual throttle bodies!

            • You two are smart. Reading this material I feel like I did in calculus class, just understanding one thing in ten… But I like where you are heading — and hopefully GM is heading that way.

              Is that the surprise a member of the Corvette team was implying? Or are there multiple ones?

                • Jason Fenske is the best! Along with many here, I’ve been watching his videos for many years. I will head over now and catch these. Thank you.

                  • It will be interesting to see if GM was able to meet or exceed the efficiency of the Ferrari 458 engine. If they could, wow, we are in for a treat!

                    • Z06 LT6, BMEP?

                      The Z06's BMEP? Is it up there with 458 and GT3 RS?

                      I say yes it is. So 686 HP is what the Z will have. Let the Tq figure itself out with the gear box.

                      • Fenske has great video on a gated manifold here. It's remarkable how if you look at the manifold you wouldn't think much is going on but it's actually an engineering masterpiece on the level of a Mona Lisa:

                        • For good reason, Jason Fenske likes what the GT3 does and how it gets it done. The 458 and GT3 are the standard for the LT6.
