Complete List of Modifications:

On a cold windy day in early March of 2003 I drove home my Electron Blue C5 Corvette Z06, barely knowing how to drive manual at the time (has that changed much? Haha).
Through the years, my car has gone through a few different phases. I began by putting in a stereo system thinking I would never get use to the power of the Z06. Soon enough I purchased headers, an intake, and DR's for the car. This livened the car up a bit but not a whole lot. The next big step was a head/cam package. After being introduced to the Shocker Racing guys and seeing how serious they were about racing and speed, I realized I needed all the help I could get! The head/cam package bumped me up to 442rwhp and 410rwtq. The car performed flawlessly and could hold it's own against most cars. I was seriously debating not touching the car or doing anything major but eventually made the decision to get a custom Twin Turbo kit done by CM Racing. At a little over 4 PSI, I was 548rwhp on a mustang dyno. The following summer I bumped it up to a little over 6 PSI, putting me at around 600rwhp. Now that I am back in school, 2000 miles away from the car, there are no current plans for the Z06 for at least a couple of years. However, future plans include (obviously) building up my rear end/transmission and either forging the 347 or getting a LSX block. The goal is to be at 750+ reliable horsepower.
