With the mechanical work wrapped up in the shop, John strapped her down to the rollers for Vlad to perform a custom calibration via HP Tuners! With 93 octane in the tank, and the Whipple 2.9L delivering ~15 psi, Vlad increased the LT1’s output to a solid 799.24whp & 765.98lbft! We're looking forward to seeing this 6th Gen back for more in the future!
