The greatest thing about a motorsports program is the trickle down effects to road-going, production cars. Nowhere is that more evident than in Corvette Racing, which has long shaped the Z06 variant for production.
But, what happens when you actually take the engine, designed and developed for the Corvette racer, and place it into a road-going Corvette? Wondrous things happen, that’s what.
That is the case with this 2002 Lingenfelter Corvette Z06. The 2002 Corvette Z06 has had its 5.7-liter LS6 V8 ripped out, and replaced with the heart of a C5.R. Introduced in 1999, the C5.R crossed numerous checkered flags with a 7.0-liter V8 engine, and it seriously screams all these years later.
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has added LS3 heads to the 7.0-liter V8, and a GT1-1 camshaft to sweeten the deal further. The results are breathtaking. Have a look at the video right up above.
