Default 10 Second 'Vette by 'Lingenfelter'!

Chevrolet's Corvette ZR1 has proven that it can be a very fast car on the track (faster round the Nürburgring than the Nissan GT-R and - as much as I hate to admit it!- the Porsche 911 Turbo) and on the straight line. Lingenfelter Performance Engineering is well known for their work on Corvette models. Their C6 Corvette ZR1 recently made three 9 second runs, hitting a best of 9.813 quarter-mile at 145.74 mph at the Maryland International Raceway.
The Lingenfelter ZR1 has been upgraded with the company’s LS9 components designed to provide 739 rear-wheel horsepower and 740 rear-wheel torque.

Upgrades to the Lingenfelter ZR1 include:
- Lingenfelter cast aluminum supercharger air intake snout
- Lingenfelter 8.5″ diameter harmonic balancer – 11 rib
- Lingenfelter 2.60″ diameter supercharger pulley – 11 rib
- Lingenfelter S&B air filter
- 4′ diameter air intake tube with mass air sensor
- Ported stock throttle body
- Lingenfelter C6 ZR1 Supercharger Cast Aluminum air inlet
- Double capacity intercooler heat exchanger
- Larger capacity intercooler reservoir system
- Mickey Thompson ET Street Radials R345/35R18 rear tires
- M&H Racemaster P185/50R18 front tires
- CCW aluminum wheels
