Not one to let that whole low-mileage rare edition thing get in the way, Anjan brought us his pristine, sub-10K miles, LeMans Blue 2004 Chevrolet Corvette Commemorative Edition Z06 to have a little boost added into the mix!
Up first, Archer installed a supercharger system from A&A Corvette Performance featuring a Vortech Superchargers Ti supercharger unit, dual valve spring & steel retainer set from Total Engine Airflow, rocker arm bronze bushing trunnion upgrade from Smith Brothers Pushrods, 160° thermostat from Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, and all the miscellaneous OEM & aftermarket components to bring it all together.
With the mechanical work wrapped in the shop, Charlie strapped the C5 down to the rollers for Vlad to perform a custom calibration via HP Tuners. The results? With the Vortech Ti delivering 9psi, Vlad was able to increase the LS6's output to 604.50whp & 515.85lbft on 93 octane! Considering stock C7 Z06s normally put down around 570whp on our DynoJet 424xLC2 dynos, this C5 Z06 is definitely better equipped to hold its own against its modern version!
