New to C5 Vettes, what is max bolt-on HP?
I might be buying a later model C5 '00-up.
I grew up around turbocharged Audi's, VW's, and Porsches, so I'm used to 20+ psi of boost to get some quick 1/4 mile times.
A friend of mine has a '01 Z06, and I was very impressed with it.
He claims 515 (flywheel) HP with just a cam, full exhaust, larger throttle, reprogrammed ECU, etc. He runs 11.7 @ 126
I also have another friend with a Lingenfelter Twin Turbo Vette ('00 model), and it is SCARY with just 7 psi! I have other friends with Supras with 28psi of boost, but they don't even come close to the LPE Vette!
I'm curious how much (bolt-on, stock block) HP one of these Vettes can take before tearing the engine apart..........
I would love to have a 500whp '00-up Vette.........Is that possible with bolt-ons?
