These days, the headlines seem to be dominated by the latest and greatest regarding the eighth-generation Chevy Corvette C8, but for those owners with a C7 in the garage, there’s still plenty of excitement to be had, especially in the aftermarket. To prove the point, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering is offering up this 1,100-horsepower upgrade for the C7-generation Chevy Corvette Z06.
For those who may not know, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering is headquartered in Brighton, Michigan, and offers high-performance upgrades for a swath of General Motors vehicles, including the automaker’s sports cars, sedans, SUVs, and more. Now, Lingenfelter is serving up this wild new upgrade package for the C7-generation Corvette Z06.
Dubbed the Eliminator Spec, the new Lingenfelter upgrade adds a bevy of bits and pieces to the Corvette Z06’s supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, starting with a Magnuson Magnum TVS2650R supercharger and intercooler. New Lingenfelter CNC ported and polished LT4 cylinder heads are included, as are solid stem titanium 2.13-inch intake valves and sodium-filled steel 1.59-inch diameter exhaust valves.
The new kit also features a new Lingenfelter GT31 LT4 hydraulic roller camshaft, a three-angle valve job, hand-blended valve seats, dual valve springs, titanium retainers, and a ported and polished 103 mm throttle body.
Fuel is supplied via new injectors, while spent gasses are piped through Kooks long-tube headers and high-flow cats. Finally, the whole thing includes a custom engine reprogram and a session on the chassis dyno before and after installation to demonstrate just how beefy the gains really are. Pour in some E85, and Lingenfelter says output at the crank will be north of four figures.
Note that the package also requires that the engine be pulled for installation. Pricing for the full package is not listed, but for reference, Lingenfelter also sells an 800-horsepower upgrade for the C7 Corvette Z06 that’s priced at $20,495, per the tuner’s website.
