The Z600 produces 600hp and 550 trq. It is a 415cid stroker and costs around 24k. Lingenfelters TT is closer to 50k and produces around 650hp.
Not pinching pennies here but for the 50 fewer ponies I think it is a pretty good deal.
Ironically I did not go with Lingenfelter in the beginning because they would not allow the install to be done in any place other than their shop and I did not want to ship the car.
I initially decided on Hennessey after Darth Vetters awsome runs and decided on the Z500 head and cam (500hp). One thing led to another and I changed to the "full Monty" and went for the stroker instead.
To ensure a proper install and proper testing, (this will be the first Z600), John Hennessey and I decided it would be better to let him do the install at his shop. Hennessey will be paying for the shipping and the job will be done right.
John Hennessey also told me that he will be taking the car up to Michigan for an article in Car and Driver.
We are also building this baby to handle a 150 shot of nitrous!! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
I will be without my car for a few months but I will also get a first rate install, professional performance testing and a 2 year warranty to boot!
The car will make a brief stop at Caravaggio for some new seats, steering wheel, shift knob and boot, parking brake handle and boot and padded center console. Maybe even an exterior change ... still debating that one.
I am trying to hook John Hennessey and Fcalmes up so there can be real write up on this baby (step by step) so you guys can get the full scoop.
Either way I will keep the info flowing.
