Z06 s/c

Hello everybody
This is my first post in forum
I owned Z06 2009 with Ragin’ Racin’ Stage 5 installed, the Z has A&A supercharger V2, blower cam, ported throttle and intake and runs methanol.
It has also forged pistons and one sleeve changed (one piston was broken).
My Z made 665 RWHP and 623 RWTQ.
I do now know if my block will handle this power after changing pistons and only one sleeve.
Is it save to changed only on sleeve! can I increase the power to 700RWHP!
Any advice or suggestion!

Re: Z06 s/c

If you're running 665rwhp on an LS7 engine you are probably boosting over 8 (possibly as much as 10) pounds on your blower.
I suspect 1 broken piston so far is the least of your worries and upping the boost further to make 700+rwhp is asking for a big BOOM in my humble opinion.


I would suggest you reconsider your engine build.

Mike

Re: Z06 s/c

Welcome to the site - how many Vettes do you see in Kuwait?

I have to agree with Mike on this one.
