After much research and planning and discussing with Dave @ EFX tuning (best tuner out there, that became a good friend)

WE ARE PROCHARGING the Corvette!!! :shock::nod::nod::nod:

Thanks to Dave and his team at EFX Tuning I now have all the parts on order that are needed for this project.

the car already has Corsa X-Pipe and Corsa Xtreme exhaust.

Ordered:

-NGK step colder plugs
-Corsa 1-7/8 Long Tube Headers
-P1SC procharger kit
-160 TSTAT
-and the proper BARO harnesses

Subscribe to this thread to follow the project.

End result is going to be roughly 575-600 WHP on 93 octane

I have nothing but positive things to say about Dave and his team at EFX

He just tuned my customers 2017 Grand Sport and got 470WHP out of a few simple bolt ons

Very nice. What made you go with the P1 vs the other units? Is the safe limit with the LT1 around 600-650rwhp max?

Should be a beast.

Yeah that's why I did the p1 . Safe limit is 6-650 som I'm doing 6 . Very small ring gap and couple other weak items people are blowing pistons up lol

I thought build threads were supposed to last years!! I've been doing it all wrong!

Looks good though, who made those headers?

I was planning this for a while, waiting for everything to fall into place, then bang it out fast and get it tuned so the car don't lay up long.

car is at daves @efxtuning now

Guess all you need now is a set of tires and a day to test n tune...

im really not trying to drag race this cause I DONT wanna have to replace axles, a clutch, torque tube or anything else...

just cruise with it , go to cars and coffee meets, etc;

now the Camaro on the other hand, dump it at 6200 every pass , break it , tow it home, rebuild and GO lol

dave cleaned everything up nice for me. We left the covers off so he could swap out the MAP with the breakout harness and throw the catch can in that he got me !

Looking good. Need to tidy up that rogue hose :).

was thinking about running it up across my windshield and down the side of the car thru the fender and rim.

i know I can trim it down, and either cut the cover or run it above and behind the coil plugs havent decided yet.

prob a couple of other small tweaks ill have to make when it comes back.

its so relaxing having the car at dave's lol I dont worry about it at all cause I know its in good hands !

theres no traction in triple digits lolol

6spdg37s
04-14-2018, 07:52 AM
okay so the updates are :

-drag radial is on 285/35/19 mickey thompson ET street SS , car now has traction at any gear and any throttle position thru the power band
-ortiz custom gauge pod supposed to be finishing production and shipped beginning of next week
-installing AEM boost and AFR gauges
-probably doing a carbon flash front lip

and thats it not doing anything else

im into this car about 10k in parts, WHOLESALE ! meaning if I were to have purchased at retail and paid labor I would be in about 15-18k dollars

I only paid 47k for the car (plus tax obvi) so that puts me at 57k for a 601WHP beast that is sexy AF and I am okay with that... still 14k cheaper than the cheapest z06 i could of bought

But warranty......

if you tune or flash a bone stock car technically your whole warranty is gone anyway. most new cars count flashes in the ECM so even if you go back to stock and gave it to dealer for warranty and your flash count doesnt match the amount of flashes that GM has done they know it was messed with. especially true with audis and stuff

I'll have the car for a year in July and I would guess about 2700-3000 miles on it so when the warranty would have ended maybe 15k miles the chances of a catastrophic failure in that mileage range is slim

plus theres always a 416 or 427 stroker to put in :drool::drool::drool::drool:

Facts ! I know how many times you flashed it, were it was flashed, what seat the tuner was sitting in, and if you had your seatbelt on on the way there.:mrgreen:

I got my ortiz custom gauge pod today and my initial thoughts of it are that it seems to good quality work. it is made from the oem part and then modify it and paint it
