On The Dyno: 2010 Corvette ZR-1

On The Dyno, we have a 2010 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1.  A stock ZR-1 is a pretty impressive car with its supercharged LS9.  However, this is no ordinary ZR-1 but has had a few custom upgrades.

This project started as an installation of a set of Kooks headers, Kooks mid-pipe, Kooks x-pipe and a Lingenfelter ZR-1 snout, and a tune.

We went a step further by having the blower and snout ported to increase efficiency.

A different size supercharger pulley was installed and the car was prepared for the dyno.  Once on the dyno, the ZR-1 was tuned with HP Tuners and produced 669 whp and 685 ft-lbs of torque at 16 lbs of boost.  

Here is the dyno run video,
